The nice thing about Cobra Drivers is they are reasonably priced. This game-improving S3 has all the modern technology to hit the ball long and straight without the prevailing price tags of most of the market leaders.
Let's talk about some of that modern technology. The face is elliptical. (Hold on. Isn't that a work-out machine?) An ellipse in geometry is a plane curve that results when a cone is intersected by a plane. Just imagine scooping ice cream out of your driver and you've got it.
Cobra uses something they call "E9 face technology" to give this driver a 30% bigger sweet spot then last year's S2 driver. In addition, they've jumped on the adjustability band wagon with their "Adjustable flight technology." However, there are only three settings: open, closed, and neutral. (As opposed to Nike and Taylormade that have many more settings.)
The best thing about the club is: although the club is big, forgiving, and long, it doesn't look or sound that way. At set-up, it looks fairly traditional, and the sound at impact isn't loud and annoying like a lot of the others in this field. I also like the snake alignment aid. It is a nice touch.
Improvements could be made in the COR. I expected a hot face with bigger spring effect. It's negotiable, though, and considering the price, I can live without it.
