I am now 9 times out of 10 playing my second shot from the fairway and with the extra distance a straight shot gives you it has enhance my all round game. This is by far the best information in helping make the decision. I have just joined a club and now play twice a week and all because I am enjoying golf as never before. The S3, in my opinion, is actually step backwards. Most of all Tony believes in performance over hype and PowerToThePlayer.
Tester Likelihood of Purchase: 94. The shaft just did not give me a good feeling. To find out your international shipping rate, please add your items to the Cart and begin the checkout process.

As a supplement to our 6 performance testers, a subset of additional golfers were given the opportunity to test the Cobra S3 Driver and provide feedback in our subjective categories looks, feel, sound, perceived distance, perceived accuracy, perceived forgiveness, and likelihood of purchase. The Cobra S3 driver looks great and performs even better.
More often than not the only thing compelling about the latest and greatest is a new paint job. Usually I just bring it to the shop and have it glued back in. The longer that I can wait using my old backup R7 the more informed a purchaser I will become. At first it sounds a bit, well…whatever…like clever marketing I suppose, but when I started to think about my own experiences, it started to actually make a little bit of sense. Tester Perceived Forgiveness Score: 91. Also made sure the R-11 and S3 were set to neutral. The Marketing Angle While Cobra could have simply painted the S3 white and called it a new model, they actually decided to introduce something of relative consequence; E9 Face Technology.
Snake logo in black on back in lower corner at toe. Will be in my bag for a while yet. Tony believes that golfers deserve to know what's real and what's not, and that means MyGolfSpy's equipment coverage must extend beyond the so-called facts as dictated by the same companies that created them. The S3 was 8 yards shorter, 248 average, and 30 yards of dispersion, mostly left. We look at launch angle, spin rates, and accuracy, and more in attempt to quantify how much deviation our testers produce from shot to shot. For example, if you order ships on a Friday after the cut-off time with 2-Day Air, your order will arrive on Wednesday assuming no holidays in between. The guys that I play with who have similar swing speeds to your own seem to prefer it.
Virtually every club we make can be customized with a variety of shaft and grip choices. In fact, I could make a case that it was the best feeling driver we tested all of last year. Thanks so much for your help in advance. Please contact Customer Service at 800-917-3300 or Cobragolf. But hey, we try and keep an open mind, because you never know when actual improvements can be made. Amazing how just a year can change things. Anecdotally, several testers myself included noted how far the ball carried on what our testers thought were some fairly poorly struck balls, impressive.
We also took a look at them from a purely subjective level, which roughly equates to the way we score the subjective portions of our reviews today. Tester Perceived Accuracy Score: 93. Also worth telling, I have had back problems in the past and it hurts once and a while when golfing, wondering if you guys have seen anything like this having an effect on golf swing and speed. As you may recall from our review, one of our testers actually loved the clubs so much he went out and bought a set. That hasn't gone entirely - I play off 19 - but this driver has given me a lot more consistency. Where the S3 is concerned, that deviation proved to be minimal. Year after year the company produces some of the best products we test, and thus far 2011 is proving to be no exception! Keep up the good work on the reviews! I purchased the s3 driver and absolutely live it! Thanks for these in-depth reviews instead of awarding it medals based on what a group of hackers think.
Golf-Spy Really enjoyed your reviews on the S-3. There may be light sky marks and small scratches resulting from normal wear and tear. I actually felt it was not as long as my tests with clubs with the Project X stock shafts. I also play where its colder and never get any roll, so that 270 would be more like 230. The head is rounded but does not look as skewed or stretched as some modern drivers do and the sound and feel of the Cobra S3 Driver were both very solid and just what you would expect from a top quality driver.

For orders placed on weekends or Friday after the cutoff time , they will ship on the following business day. If there are any marks at all on the head they will be very light. There may be one or two minor wear marks on graphite shafts where they have rubbed against the bag. Indeed, I can attest that balls low and off the heel, and high of the toe traveled significantly farther than I expected they would. If you have any questions, feel free to!

The Cobra S3 Driver is the replacement for the previous S2 model and features Cobra's latest E9 Face Technology. Hundreds of dollars in drivers sit in my garage due to incomparable performance of Cobra I will purchase the S3 on your advice and expertise.
I cannot praise this club enough having tried all the other brands. I understand what you are saying, and I'm definitely not getting optimal launch conditions. Or you can place custom orders directly with our Online Sales department at 800-540-3565. My swing speed is 94 — 97, so the flex was stiff, and loft on all clubs was 10. While we saw a single 10, and several 9s, plenty of testers rated it an 8 with a single 7 thrown in for accuracy.
The adjustable hosel rotates through 3 positions which is a little limiting as other drivers offer more face angle options. Backing your test with actual data instead of blurbs makes it a lot more respectable. I've since purchased cobra irons - I am a convert! Once your order ships, you will receive an automated email with the tracking link from our shipping carrier. If you do love it, that's awesome!

How We Tested The 6 golfers for whom we collected detailed performance data were asked to hit a series of shots on our 3Track Equipped simulators from. I get frustrated because I should be able to swing faster, my twin brother swings at 115 mph and we are similarly built just to give you an idea, and I don't see where I can be missing out on that much speed.
