The Cobra Long Tom Driver is a four foot long, 269g, ultra-light driver named after a cannon used in World War II and the Korean War. The Long Tom, complete with a Graffalloy Blackbird shaft, has the highest length to weight ratio of any Cobra Driver.
Cobra have used Advanced Material Placement in the Long Tom Driver. A thin, high-strength, titanium face repositions up to 20g of weight moving the Centre of Gravity lower and deeper. The same E9 Face Technology found in previous Cobra drivers has been enhanced with the addition of a canted bulge with dual roll providing even more distance for strikes above and below the centerline.

The Cobra Long Tom driver goes to the limit of shaft length with a 48 inch or 4 foot long shaft that is only 50g. The Grafalloy Blackbird shaft combines with a short Winn Lite grip which not only makes the club long, but also very light indeed at only 269 grams.
It is this lightness combined with the slightly smaller 445 cc head that makes this club appear shorter than it actually is. With other longer than standard drivers you felt like you were swinging a fishing rod, but somehow with this even longer one we did not feel that. True, you do have to slow you tempo down a little but the results are great and the Cobra Long Tom gave long straight drives without the wider dispersion you would expect from a long shafted driver.
The Blackbird shaft with its lovely matt finish felt very stable despite its length and the feel and sound from the titanium head was excellent too.
We really liked this club on the range but we are not sure if it delivers the extra 25 yards that the Long Tom Calculator on the Cobra site says it will. However it is not short and is great fun to hit and will certainly provide a talking point with your golf partners. If you can fit it in the boot of your car though as that is! The all black finish of the standard Cobra Long Tom driver looks good but we prefer the look and fiinsh of the limited edition Long Tom Raw version if you can get your hands on one.
