Cobra Darkspeed Vs Cobra Aerojet Hybrid
Is the new Cobra Darkspeed hybrid worth an upgrade over the Aerojet hybrid? Let’s find out.
Cobra Darkspeed Hybrid Overview
“The Cobra Darkspeed hybrid features a 12g sole weight, high bounce leading edge and PWR-BRIDGE weighting.”
I like the fact that the Cobra Darkspeed looks less boxy than the Aerojet hybrid.
The toe edge has been curved a bit more for a streamlined look. The royal blue coloration has also been replaced with an all-black scheme.
Performance was very similar except for turf interaction. It was much easier to move the Cobra Darkspeed through the cabbage.
The Cobra Darkspeed hybrid is $280.
Cobra Aerojet Hybrid Overview
“The Aerojet features HOT face design, PWRSHELL face design and low/forward weighting.”
The Aerojet has a deeper body than the Cobra Darkspeed hybrid and a silver/blue/black color scheme.
The forward weighting keeps spin rates low; but the leading edge is a bit blunted which made me more prone to digging.
However, the deeper face profile yielded better low-face and fat shot forgiveness. The Cobra Aerojet hybrid retails for $200.
“If you can afford the extra $80, go with the Cobra Darkspeed hybrid. It does everything the Aerojet does only with better turf interaction.
