If the Cobra S2 driver seems a little daunting for those of you with a slightly higher handicap then help is at hand with the Cobra S2 Offset driver. This dispenses with the Adjustable Flight Technology and Cobra are pitching it as a game improvement driver that has a more traditional finish.
The silver finish is less striking than the bold black of the S2 driver but the looks at address are still excellent and behind the ball the club gives more confidence.
Like the S2 driver the S2 Offset version has a slightly extended Fujikura Fit-On shaft which helps to promote ball speed, something that should really give mid handicappers a little extra boost from the tee.
We found the Cobra S2 Offset a joy to hit. The ball flight is a little higher than the S2 and this is because of a difference in internal weighting that the closed faced requires.
This, however, should pose few problems for the higher handicappers who sometime need a little extra encouragement to get the correct ball flight.
We found the feel and sound at impact to be terrific and were impressed with how easy it was to get the ball travelling long and straight with a pleasing consistency and the forgiveness from strikes out of the heel and toe was good.
We really think this Cobra S2 Offset will be a winner with the mid handicappers out there and the lower price tag should be an attractive proposition for those of you wanting all of Cobra's traditional performance without the premium price tag of the S2 version.
