Are you looking for a Cobra Driver Review on the latest Cobra Aerojet compared to the Cobra Radspeed and Cobra LTDX? Read on for a detailed review of these three fantastic golf drivers.

2023 is a HUGE year for drivers and fairway woods. With the release of the TaylorMade Stealth 2, the Callaway Paradigm, the Titleist TSR3, and the Cobra Aerojet, golfers may get more forgiveness and distance than ever before.

In today’s Cobra driver review, I will explain why I believe the Cobra Aerojet has the potential to be the longest-hitting driver of 2023. You’ll also want to read our expert guide to cobra golf clubs for a more comprehensive overview.

I will also discuss why I believe Cobra has repeatedly killed it with their driver production in the Radspeed, LTDX, and Aerojet models.

Why I Love Cobra Golf

To begin this Cobra Driver Review, I need to share my personal encounter with Cobra Golf.

I admit to having a soft spot for Cobra. I have been playing golf for over 7 years now and first started with some old TaylorMade Burner irons and Titleist woods.

I was addicted to the game quickly and began to tinker with golf clubs every round. The number of clubs I bought and sold was too much to count. For 2 years I jumped from one golf club brand to another.

Eventually, the Cobra F9 was released, and I never looked back. With yellow accents off the back and unparalleled looks, the F9 driver felt better than any driver I ever hit. What put me over the edge was the distance I got. I held on to this until the Radspeed was released.

I remember when the Cobra Radspeed first came out at the beginning of 2021. I saw the peacoat blue color and had to have one. With a stock HZRDUS shaft, I was sold. It was true love at first sight and first swing. I enjoyed this driver so much that I bought the matching peacoat Radspeed 3 wood as well.

Since I purchased the Radspeed, I also acquired a Cobra LTDX LS and am seriously considering a jump to the Aerojet.

In the rest of this Cobra Driver Review, you will learn about the specs of the Radspeed, LTDX, and the Aerojet and hopefully conclude that any of these will work well for you, but one may be better than the other for your type of golf game.

The Specs: Cobra LTDX vs Radspeed

Cobra Driver Review: Radspeed vs LTDX Driver

Here is a detailed breakdown of the specifications of the Cobra Radspeed, LTDX Driver, and Aerojet.

Cobra Radspeed Driver

The Cobra Radspeed Driver features an average 460cc driver head with a forward-biased radial shape for the intention of less spin off the face. There are adjustable weights on the bottom of the driver for adjustments on trajectory and spin.

Cobra calls this radical engineering. The driver shape and adjustable weights create a symmetrical balance from front to back to create a longer distance off the tee and straighter shots.

The frame of the driver includes 28-gram weights towards the face of the club designed for speed and a comfortable feel for all golfers. The face of the Radspeed has not changed since the Cobra Speedzone driver.

It features an infinity-edge design with a milled face. The milled faced design is traditionally found in putters, but Cobra figured out that the milled face gives golfers a higher MOI (moment of inertia). It is designed to give more forgiveness and minimize twisting of the driver’s head at impact with the ball.

The Cobra Radspeed is surrounded by a carbon crown for faster swing speeds. One thing I love about Cobra is their introduction of the Radspeed XB and XD.

Cobra Radspeed XB Driver

The Cobra Radspeed XB Driver is different because it has a larger back and no external adjustable weights like in the standard Radspeed. This driver is larger because there is more internal weight shifted in the back for higher launch and more forgiveness. The Radspeed XB is an excellent driver for senior golfers looking for more distance.

Cobra Radspeed XD Driver

The Cobra Radspeed XD Driver, on the other hand, is all about draw. If you are a golfer who has a strong fade or slice, try the XD. This driver is designed with internal weight to force a golfer to hit the ball more squarely off the GNC- milled face.

Cobra LTDX Driver

I always wonder how golf companies can make golf clubs better each season. I used to believe it was just marketing and their desire to sell more clubs, but I have to say, after testing out the LTDX against the Radspeed I did notice a difference.

The LTDX stands for the longest total distance. The big question I had was, was this true? The short answer is yes. I will go into that after I share the specs.

The LTDX uses a PWR-COR Technology aimed at ZERO CG with 5200 MOI for faster ball speed, low spin, and more forgiveness than any Cobra driver to date. The face of the driver changed.

This is the hottest face Cobra has ever released for a driver. With a 3D machine, the driver face includes the thickness of the center zone that is more compressed than any Cobra driver ever made.

If I were to hold the Radspeed head versus the LTDX you would notice that the LTDX driver head is also lighter. There is 30% more carbon than the Radspeed with even more adjustability on the bottom of the club for weight distribution.

One of my favorite features yet may be the premium aftermarket shafts offered with this driver. The LTDX comes with an HZRDUS RDX Smoke, HZRDUS Smoke im10, or Helium SF3 shaft which are some of the best shafts on the market!

I had to test the two on my GC Hawk Simulator. I know the data is as accurate as possible because I have been using this simulator for over 2 years now. Below you can see the data I was most focused on.

Cobra DriverBall SpeedCarry DistanceTotal DistanceSpin Rate
LTDX LS1702863072850

In a previous article on the Taylormade Stealth Driver Review, I performed a similar test with the same data. Here I noticed a large difference from year to year.

The 2022 driver models among all brands feature a lower spin stock driver head with enhanced speed and distance. The LTDX LS was the driver head I used because it has a smaller face but a Lower Spin head than the stock LTDX.

The Cobra LTDX LS is the better comparison to the stock Radspeed since they both featured more weight towards the driver’s head face. As you can see, the LTD LS included better ball speed, carry distance, total distance, and spin rate.

It is fair to say, the Radspeed is sitting on the shelf now and does not get as much use, although it still is a phenomenal driver and features the Radspeed XB and XD for golfers who need more forgiveness and distance.

Cobra Aerojet Driver

In our Cobra Driver Review, the biggest change Cobra has brought to the golf course in the last 5 years is the Aerojet Driver.

Here is why:

  • Raised skirt, symmetrical shaping, and streamlined edges for a more aerodynamic look.
  • The better spin rate and higher launch with a HOT face like the LTDX.
  • PWR-Bridge weight at the heel of driver face for energy transfer in the golf swing for a trampoline effect when the driver head meets the golf ball.

The design of the Aerojet looks like an airplane. The glossy gray carbon fiber head with white, black, and subtle blue accents is stunning.

I was fortunate enough to show up at PGA Superstore the day they got one in. They let me feel it and hit it. I don’t have the same data to compare with the Radspeed and LTDX, but what I can say is that my total distance was 305 – 310 on a consistent basis and the sound was much better than the Cobra Radspeed and Cobra LTDX Drivers.

I absolutely love the simplicity and expert design of the Aerojet. Cobra has a habit of releasing drivers each year, which causes every golfer to want one of the newest and best models.

If you’re reading this and questioning if it’s worth getting the newest Cobra driver, the Aerojet, you need to go into your local shop and hit one.

Cobra Aerojet Max Driver

The Aerojet also comes in a high-launch version called the Aerojet Max was draw-biased for shot shaping, and an LS model for a lower spin.

The Best Cobra Driver for Seniors

Senior golfers are the best to learn from on the golf course. I recently played with a man who told me that more forgiveness equals fewer shots which equals a lower score. I had to think about it, but he was telling the truth.

Every time I hit a larger driver or more forgiving iron; it feels amazing. Senior golfers generally want more distance and forgiveness, therefore the Cobra Radspeed XB, LTDX Max, and Aerojet Max are the best options.

Only you can determine which of these Cobra drivers you like best when it comes to your visual preference, but they are all going to give you added distance and confidence off the tee.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Cobra Driver should you buy?

If you are a low handicap golfer, who hits the ball long, you will want the Cobra LS version of the LTDX or the Cobra Aerojet. The stock Radspeed will work as well. If you need more distance and forgiveness, go for the Cobra Radspeed XB, Cobra LTDX Max, or Cobra Aerojet Max.

Which Cobra driver is the longest?

Length off the tee has a lot to do with path and speed. There is no blanket statement for this, but you should consider the LS version of the Cobra LTDX or the Cobra Aerojet Driver.

Is it worth buying the Cobra Aerojet Driver?

If you are in the market for a new driver, the Cobra Aerojet is worth it. There is a version for low and high handicappers, as well as senior golfers. It is available online now for ordering and comes with a fantastic Cobra manufacturer warranty.

Final Thoughts | Cobra Driver Review

While I would love to hit the ball like Bryson DeChambeu, Rickie Fowler, Lexi Thompson, or Kyle Berkshire, the largest sponsored pro golfers by Cobra, I don’t quite have that skill set. I will however say that my experience hitting any Cobra driver or golf club, has been fantastic.

Every time I order a Cobra golf club, it feels like my birthday when I open the box. I brag about Cobra every round I play to someone I know. The clubs have incredible design and function and are made with an immense amount of detail. The quality is fantastic.

If you have not given Cobra a shot yet, or are partial to TaylorMade, Titleist, or Ping, I have a feeling that you may stumble into my experience with Cobra.

Most of my golf bag today is filled with Cobra golf clubs, and I really believe that Cobra has taken the golf market by the reigns and may push club-making to a whole new level in years to come.
