DO NOT WATCH THIS REVIEW. YOU SIR HAD A PRETTY POOR PERFORMANCE! Rick
you totally lost me on this review and I usually watch you for
suggestions. To be fair I am a Cobra fan (just feel the best for me),
but your review is way off from your past reviews of each club! Your
review of Fly Z before had you hitting over 300. To quote you " I think
I'm falling in live with this club." Watched your F6. You hit the ball 328....FREAKIN 328! and all other shots hovered around or above 300. I also love how you say you
don't see consistent gains. I watched your other 5 year reviews. Your hitting same distance weather it was 5 years ago or this year with almost all of them. Maybe a 5 yard distance difference with Titliest! C'MON MAN!!!!

Not surprised the bio cell was No1 since The Project X shaft used was the stock shaft. The stock for the fly z and Fx were Matrix and Fujikura.

This is my favorite segment you do and I watch all of them. Could you do a low spin version? And could you also do an irons version? Maybe a consolidation of all the previous iron review vids? I love the channel, you and Mr Finch do a great job at covering different topics...differently, which makes both of your channels must watches.
Chris Kawczynski
Chris Kawczynski - 2 years ago
I don't understand though if you go to Rick's video where he tests the Cobra Fly Z for the first time he crushes it. But in this test he's surprised by a big drop off?? In that video it averages 300 yards compared to 268...so what happened.
mojopa01
mojopa01 - 2 years ago
The one thing I don't get about this is tha end of Jan 2015 you reviewed the Fly-Z on its own, and you hit that 277 Carry for a total of 300 Yards with 2316 Backspin... So this makes me wonder, and I am sorry to have to say this... Who got worse, you or the clubs, because I can't imagine that there is such a big differnece between the two Fly-Zs that you tested. Sorry but it kind of makes me dout your reviews a little, just hab to get this out... But I will off course stay with the chanel since with all the course vlogs, and tips you do produce great content...

Hey Rick I was just wondering with all of the golf stuff that you get to make your videos with, do you ever give away any of the equipment. For instance I am a big Cobra golf fan and am only trying to play cobra clubs. Was wondering if you would donate any of the driver heads you used in the 5 year test? Or anything you could part ways with. Would gladly take off your hands. Thanks for all the videos you do. And will continue to watch and learn more.

When the bio cell was new I was between that and the Nike Covert 2.0 and ended up buying the Nike due to the fact I got a really good deal somehow. I now game the Cobra F7 and that has made me regret ever buying the Nike. Cobra drivers have been amazing in the last 10 years and I wish I wouldn't have wasted 4 years with a sub par driver.

Rick, when you did the original test on the Cobra Fly Z driver you used the Xstiff shaft that came with the shaft and you just killed it, most of you test drivers strikes were all or close to the 300 yard mark and dispersion was very good. It was one of the best for distance and direction, now with this same driver head three years later and a different shaft is seems to be one of the worst for distance and dispersion. Just seems strange, I would think you would used an original VLCT shaft like the first test for this later test. Just wondering about this test with this other shaft, the head might be fine but the shaft mismatched.

You didn't have to wait too long for the F8 then Rick! Haha! I'm a Bio Cell man myself and love the sound and strike off it. Tried the F7 but didnt think it was as good. After you F8 review, i'm really looking forward to trying that. Got any spare??
absolutraj
absolutraj - 3 years ago
Rick, great that you’re doing these videos but I believe your fly z numbers are quite off. Here is your flyz vs ping g30 comparison. The Fly Z numbers from that have more than 40 yards more distance and about 1300 rpm less spin. https://youtu.be/5SFfp-tjI80

Brian Holle
Brian Holle - 3 years ago
Rick, although you can use the same shaft in the Cobra drivers with the my fly 8, the lie angle of the club head will be off. the my fly will be @ 9.5 degrees but the actual angle will be off for most of the clubs and they will be launching at the wrong angle. So the test is already off. And the BioCell was the best for me, until i got the king LTD.
Impo Impo
Impo Impo - 3 years ago
Hi Rick, can you try to clarify something for me the carry on the fly z is 253 and therefore quite short, however on your fly z v ping g30 test the fly z was carrying 294. I only ask because I have a fly z Cheers mark.

How does Rick have so many viewers? Every video is the same: full of inane hyperbole; inconsistent strikes; and incorrect attribution of results on the golf club head/equipment rather than the golfer.

Rick, how did you hit the same clubs so much further when you did the original tests compared to the 5 year test?  Is there any chance to get your favorite golf shaft to use and re-do the Cobra test?  Odds are...those clubs did not fit you at all, and it shows.

You talk about club speed, ball speed, carry but you fail to mention smash factor. The club with the highest launch and lowest spin gave you the best carry. In spite of your efforts these tests have not provided any useful info to me.

10:04 Rick, based on the strike pattern you displayed here, you must have had a lesson before this test? In the vlogs before this, you were kind of back to your overdraw, which would 'generally' indicate strikes a bit more toward the toe? #golfisfun

To me this really shows the benifits of getting fit. I have always played Taylormade drivers and this year switched to the F7 with a custom Hzrdus shaft and I am crushing it. The weight forward in the F7 will add 20 yards. I have watched your F7 review and thats your best setting. Can you do a video with the Muzino drivers?

Always enjoy your videos. I am not a Cobra Golf guy but this only illustrates that you need to get fit for your clubs more than anything. I am sure there are plenty of golfers that have had success with each of these drivers. I would like to see you fit yourself with all the current drivers to get your best numbers and go head to head with Taylormade, Callaway, Ping, Titleist, and Mizuno in this same format.

Once again as with Titleist, only the forgiving higher spin models are tested. Unfortunately, someones not listening to the mass comments on this issue?
vivianmoonbeam
vivianmoonbeam - 3 years ago
Yep, somethng is not right, the original Fly Z review was gushing about the quality of e driver. I think it is a crapshoot using used clubs for this test. I think comparing previous reviews using new equipment vs these past five years with used clubs would show big discrepancies with performance within the same model.
P. Harney
P. Harney - 3 years ago
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwDBZZB-IhkThere's a disconnect here somewhere.  Maybe not having the stock shaft it came with has something to do with the huge discrepancy.  Which test are we to believe?
Bob Carlisle
Bob Carlisle - 3 years ago
Would it not make more sense to do a test with the drivers that are going to give you the best results rather than trying to keep it a ‘fair test’? Then we might see a consistent improvement in performance. Use the low spinning models or move weights forward....or both?
Big Dog Jr.
Big Dog Jr. - 3 years ago
Could it be that the older clubs have metal fatigue and thus perform under par, or it can be the shaft producing higher spinning conditions than optimal. Keep up the tests and hopefully can do a each year winner of all the manufacturers, then an ultimate driver championship. How about a Ben Ross test in the future, they seem to have some lower spinnings models. Cheers!

Derek Harding
Derek Harding - 3 years ago
Just makes you wonder about all the hype. There is a bit to suit personal taste and swing but I reckon whats right for Rick probably isn't right for me. I have just changed from an old Bridgestone to an M1, and it hasn't made the slightest difference. No longer, still just as straight just a few hundred quid lighter.
Craig Bryant
Craig Bryant - 3 years ago

Don Harrold
Don Harrold - 3 years ago
It could be argued that the longer distances (bio cell, F6 and F7) were achieved because the head and shaft combination was better fit for your swing as opposed to the effects of superior technology. At the end of the day the biggest market demographic for manufacturers is the 85-95 mph swing speed players rather than somebody like yourself. Most retail drivers are optimised to deliver higher spin to assist slow swingers to keep the ball in the air. In the hands of a longer hitter inevitability they generate too much spin which punishes distance. It might be more relevant to perform the test with a typical mid handicapper. I'd bet the difference wouldn't be so large.

Something wrong here, because Rick's 2015 review of the Fly-Z, he hit 300 yards total distance. Maybe using the same shaft here give wrong results for some models.

There's a whole lot of comments from a whole lot of people that don't seem to understand how the shaft and dynamic loft can affect performance differently between clubs...
Ray J
Ray J - 3 years ago
Yes, some drivers will perform better than others, because the fitted shaft of those drivers suits the players swing speed better.
jpugolf
jpugolf - 3 years ago
If you 're ' reviewing the clubs against each other, then the shafts that were released with each club has a bearing on performance ?
Tony Reimann
Tony Reimann - 3 years ago
I don’t think this is the best test. Adjustable drivers are there for a reason, to adjust to suit the individual. The most valid test would be with a driver fitted to you for each years version. All you are really proving is that fitting is essential.
Adrian Dutton
Adrian Dutton - 3 years ago
Strike is king! AMP Cell and FLY Z number have all the hallmarks of poor low struck shots being the ones that count. The average strikes may be fairly central, but I'd bet he wasn't hitting the sweet-spot on the Fly Z, even the average is low heel biased. It's that or there's something wrong with the specific club in the test.
StarlitShadows

I currently play a M1 440...
...but only because its adjustable - otherwise I would still play the Biocell Pro 440 head.
I think haters gonna hate, and ignore, that there are justified concerns about the driver and shaft choice for his swing speed -
especially because of Ricks former tests, where some models performed significantly better - fishy is fishy - you don´t need to be a fanboy to smell it!

Bio Cell+
Usee
Usee - 3 years ago
I had the Biocell, Biocell+, Biocell Pro, F6+, King LTD Pro, and had the opportunity to test them against the Ping G20, G30, Callaway FTiz, M1 460 and M1 430...
...I only sold the Biocell, because it generated too much spin for my swing speed, just like the FTiz and the G30.
However, it was as forgiving as the FTiz and G30, but was longer than the FTiz and sounded better than the G30.
I think Cobra has in their mainstream range the focus on forgiving with enough spin for low swing speed players,
because the Biocell+, Biocell Pro, F6+ and LTD Pro are as long and as forgiving as the M1 460 (2016), and more forgiving, than the M1 430 - for a swing speed above 105 mph - like mine and like yours.

Small Town Golf Academy
Small Town Golf Academy - 3 years ago
I can’t understand why you haven’t taken the models that best fit your swing from each year. You should be testing clubs that fit your spin profile and comparing them instead of testing clubs with full knowledge that you’re going to spin them too much and lose didtance
slimjim 2582
slimjim 2582 - 3 years ago
I'm impressed with my bio cell driver myself. To me, the ease of effort, combined with the feel of an amazing strike give me the distance I need to set up for my second shot. I don't need much power to get that ball exploding off the tee. When you do take the time to personally dial in your swing for a more consistent shot, I feel it pays off. Other golfers always comment on my tee shot as well, which tells me I'm not the only one seeing the performance come out in this driver. Cheers Rick, keep up the great work!
Justin Stephenson

46barrj
46barrj - 3 years ago
The Fly Z results are most interesting. If you look at Rick's review of the same Fly Z model driver back in 2015, he averaged over 300 yards and a longest hit of 321 yards. Spin rate was also in the order of 2400, not 3800 like this review. Different shafts is the only noticeable difference in the clubs. Maybe an off day Rick?

Tyler I agree, Rick's initial test of the fly z was positive. And he hit it longer. I played it for 1 year given I was new to the game. I was hitting it for an average of 275. I'm 6'2, 190 pounds former basketball player. It is truly forgiving and is a great club. I currently hit the fly z+ due to my swing being more consistent. Don't let this test be off putting to you. It's a great club. I actually have a brand new white one that I'm selling ($179) only because I have the f7+ on its way. Just to have cause I like Cobra, will still keep my fly z+ though. Good luck to you, try the Fly z.

Your own numbers are the most inconsistent here though, looking at your previous reviews of some of these drivers you've managed to drop 30(!) yards of carry. This goes for the F6 and F7. I'm more disappointed in your reviews than you are in the Cobra here. If you cannot use your own reviews as reliable data, how are your viewers to take you seriously? And don't get me wrong, I enjoy your channel, but this is the most awkward video I've seen you make yet.

Would be good to actually see where the balls end up on the range rather than just taking data. I’m sure I’ve read that you can change settings in Launch monitors, such altitude (higher meaning ball will fly further through the air) and ground firmness (effecting roll out distance). You have reviewed clubs and in less then 3 years they are performing 30 yards worse. Seems strange.

So you hit some clubs not designed for you with a shaft not designed for you, all in an effort to cut through marketing hype?

Results here are a little suspect I think. Either these 5 year comparisons are useless or the original review videos are because the huge variance in numbers is impossible to explain.

Cobra drivers are known to spin a lot for certain models. The best strikes for lower spin usually were higher face strikes on Cobras. So the saying to get fit is quite important on cobra clubs. I got fit last year and the LTD King was the best for me from any manufacturer out there. It is in my bag and most likely will be there for years. It brought my dispersion rate (long and short) as well as strike in various weather conditions to an acceptable level. That had always been an issue for me. Rick, I would like you to do the test on the lower spinning drivers which Cobra made. I believe that you would find a much better consistency on distance. Also use the rouge shaft in the test.  Thanks for doing the test.

Please tell me that you know that there is no such thing as a "longer" driver anymore. They all are maxed out on the speed in which the ball comes off. If you hit one further than the other it just mean it fits YOU better. A person with a different path or speed or dynamic loft might hit the amp cell the furthest not the shortest. You would think for a golf pro who tests clubs for a living would know this.

Rogelio Ortega
Rogelio Ortega - 3 years ago
I think this shows that Cobra has had some differences in the heads they produce.  Some of these are low spin (Bio cell, F6), one mid spin (F7) and 2 that are high spin (Fly-Z and Amp Cell).

I am curious what the differences are with the + models of these drivers, or if rick would see a big difference in putting the weight forward on the F7 and possibly even the F6.  I don't think poor performance, I just see poor fit for this golfer on a few of these models.  For a low launcher of the ball without ricks club head the models he dislikes might be a great fit.

Think it goes to show that getting a proper fitting not only for the shaft and head, but also the configuration of the weights in the heads of many of these new drivers is the key to finding the best distance for each golfer.

High spinning Project X shaft in each clubs high spin setting being hit by someone with him club head speed.... What did you expect would happen? The bio cell has the farthest forward CG, giving it the lowest spin. Really a pretty unfair test. These models aren't made for you, so of course you didn't like them.

I also found that to be true on distance! for years cobra always had great drivers the amp cell I could not stand never owned but hit it a number of times. I tried the BIO CELL in 2014 and said yes cobra back in the saddle. Then I tried the F7 and felt what a DUD!!! Cobra really needs to get there driver figured out because irons, fairways, hybrids and even wedges are wonderful!! Drivers very hit and miss.

Great comparison test. I started off the year with the F7 driver and also found it spun way too much, very accurate but was giving up way too many yards in distance. Returned the F7 to PGA SUPERSTORE and traded it in for Callaway Epic subzero driver. Clearly Callaway is Better with superior distance and with the same accuracy as the F7.

Hmmm not buying this. Have been gaming cobra drivers for 10+ years now, and they always seem to go from strength to strength. From the early days of blasting your ear drums to high performance of Fly Z+ (usually longest and most consistent in my group on the course........) Disappointed with Rick's summary, but guess that's just his take..... Too bad, will happily ignore and dismiss!

I bought the F7 because of its forgiveness. I tried the F7 Plus and it was way, way longer, but I hit one in 5 on the fairway. This driver is not long, but for a 19 handicapper who struggles with posture, it was the perfect fit. It, along with the 3 wood, has helped me get down to 14. I feel confident every time I pull this driver out. If i nail it, it goes 240mtrs. If I put it from the extreme toe or heel it gives me 210mtrs and still on the fairway. I love this driver.

Clayton DUnn It's not bragging. Im showing that his swing speed is faster than mine, but he's not getting the distances. Hopefully, it just a bad used club. His original review was much further. I don't think a 270 yard drive is much to brag about. Cheer up brother!
bob johnson
bob johnson - 3 years ago
LozKnutsen Yes we all know. It's not as if he hasn't made a vid or 10 about it. But if you check the club head speed they're within about 1mph of each other, so shouldn't account for the discrepancy seen. If there was a 5-10mph difference that would explain it, but there's not. There's something amiss here, whether it be the wrong shafts, damaged head, not finding it's sweet spot, there's definitely something.
LozKnutsen
LozKnutsen - 3 years ago
Do none of you know that’s he’s gone through some swing changes and doesn’t try to hit the cr&p out of it any more. Hence why all these comparisons generally show shorter distances than his original reviews. If you like the club just use it.

I bought a used Fly Z+ in part based on his reviews this year and I love it. On a good drive I'm getting about 290 carry. Great club.
bob johnson
bob johnson - 3 years ago
I think part of the problem is that they're second hand drivers. You don't know what sort of abuse and torture their former owners have put them through. If the face have damage, maybe hairline cracks around the speed channel you can't see, it will affect performance massively.

Having said that, I do find that my Fly-z can spin up too much at times, particularly if I really give it some welly on a par 5, it just seems to go higher rather than further, which decreases roll out too.
DrVegiAlex
DrVegiAlex - 3 years ago
Another Fly Z user here. I also bought mine based on Rick's original review. I agree that it is very easy to hit straight compared to others I tried. But I am a very mediocre player and am able to hit fairways at 240-250 yards.
Not sure how I feel about this review.

Have any of you guys tried playing your driver with the heel weight removed completely to reduce spin? Something I have been considering...
Bradley Cory
Bradley Cory - 3 years ago
The fly z is one of the best driver of 2015 and the flyz + was even better then that and he loved it shirt term memory loss indeed. Also his f7 review were over 300yards how has he lost 15yards in a short time.

I used to play the Bio Cell driver as well until a couple of months ago. I got along really well with it, but because it got older I wanted a new shiny toy. I could not hit the Cobra F6 or F7 at all when I went to look for a new driver to replace my Bio Cell. I was all over the place and lost about 20 yards of distance as well. I endet up going for the M1 2017. It isn't really longer and I can't notice that it is much more forgiving, but I am definitely more accurate with the M1 2017 than I was with the Bio Cell. Thanks a lot for the awesome videos Rick!!

I don’t know if it’s your launch monitor you’re using now or what but if you go back and look at your review of the Cobra Fly Z you did I think 2 years ago those numbers are WAY different. Like you were carrying the ball almost 295 yards and on this review your average carry was 253 lol
jjoeyj83
jjoeyj83 - 2 years ago
Jonathan P wow. There’s no such thing as a hot and a dead driver. That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard. What this test boiled down to was shaft. The project x is a high spinning shaft that rick used with the higher spinning settings. High spin is to be expected. When manufacturers send rick new clubs he always gets the standard shaft that comes in that particular club in extra stiff. He says it at the beginning of every video. Also, for a cobra driver, his strike locations were very poor. Especially on the fly z.

What you are right about is this video being irrelevant. It absolutely is and rick did the cobra brand a poor service here when he knows better and why those numbers are the way they are.

Jonathan P I suspect this is down to manufacturer tolerance. the club's they send to rick will have been tested to make sure it was a 'hot' one where as these random ones sent by golf bidder could be the opposite end of the tolerance. I bet if rick did this test with 5 of the same clubs you would see a wide range of results. I had a cobra driver once and was dead compared to the one I was fitted for
