Cobra Aerojet Vs Taylormade M4 Hybrid Comparison Overview
Cobra has always been an intriguing company.
Anyone who knows Cobra clubs knows that they are crazy about forward-oriented weighting which mutes spin rates. But the new Cobra Aerojet hybrid clubs are intriguing because they mix a lot of forgiveness features in with the forward weighting that better players tend to gravitate towards.
So we were really excited to get our hands on the Cobra Aerojet hybrid and see what it was all about. But every experiment needs a control so we decided to test the Aerojet hybrid against the tried and true Taylormade M4 hybrid.
Cobra Aerojet Hybrid Overview
“First of all, the Cobra Aerojet hybrids have bigger head volumes and overall profiles than the Taylormade M4 hybrids.”
The Aerojet hybrid has a very “boxy” face and a deep face profile. Couple a larger face with what is essentially variable face technology (Cobra calls it H.O.T. face technology) and you’re off to a good start if what you’re looking for is forgiveness.
Our testers noted that the Aerojet was very easy to hit with and that once you find the sweet spot, it’s really easy to lock onto it. The face also felt active. The floating weight design allows the face to flex more so the Cobra Aerojet hybrid yielded really good distance on pure strikes. With the Aerojet 4-hybrid, we were averaging 262.7 yards after three swings. That being said, the leading edge of these hybrids is very clunky.
Taylormade M4 Hybrid Overview
“The Taylormade M4 has a cleaner look at address and feels better on all lies.”
While we liked the distance of the Aerojet hybrid, it really suffered in the rough and semi-rough – places where the Taylormade M4 hybrid really shines. We were only getting an average of 158.5 yards from the Taylormade M4 4-hybrid; but the launch was higher and it played way smoother in the cabbage.
The Taylormade M4 features the Speed Pocket so of course, low-face shots are forgiven. Overall though, the Cobra Aerojet was the more forgiving hybrid.
“Cobra really succeeded in making a game improvement hybrid that yields a lot of distance, easily. However, it seems like they spent all their effort in those departments and hardly any in the turf interaction department. So long as your lies are clean, the Cobra Aerojet is an excellent hybrid. However, if you’re looking for exceptional performance from all lies, the Taylormade M4 is a better choice.”
