Cobra Radspeed Vs. Taylormade M2 Driver Comparison Overview

In our experience with testing Cobra clubs, we have come across some very unique products. So much so that we have come to know Cobra and a very innovative company. However, there are people who say that some Cobra clubs are a bit gimmicky.

We can certainly understand how some purists can view many of Cobra’s clubs as superfluously adorned without providing any substance. So to check our admitted bias, we tested the Cobra Radspeed driver against the Taylormade M2 driver.

Cobra Radspeed Driver Overview

The most important feature of the Radpseed driver is the split radial weighting that places most of the weight up front with a smaller weight in the back.

The intended effect of this feature is greatly reduced spin off the tee. We tested the Radspeed specifically for this effect and we’re happy to report that the spin rate was in the minimal range. As you can imagine, this lead to longer drives.

In fact, most of our testers were getting distances in the range of 270-285 yards on average. The Radpseed also has a carbon fiber crown that helps keep the weight down and imparts a solid feel on impact.

With our bias for Cobra products put aside, we can honestly say that the Radspeed is a high-performance driver that will meet the expectations of anyone looking for longer drives and reduced long-game spin.

Taylormade M2 Driver Overview

The Taylormade M2 driver also delivers solid feel and sound but the main feature here is the Speed Pocket.

Even though the 2019 edition of the Taylormade M2 is still older than the Cobra Radspeed, it keeps up with it in terms of distance. That being said, the total average distance of the Taylormade M2 was less than the Radspeed; but not by much.

Our testers were getting an average of 276 yards with the Taylormade M2 and they credited the Speed Pocket for increasing ball speed. The Taylormade M2 doesn’t go far by reducing spin. Instead it gets most of it’s distance through a high degree of face flex which in turn, increases ball speed.

We are happy to be able to say that nothing about the Cobra Radspeed driver felt unnecessary or gimmicky. Every feature has a purpose and it would be a great choice for mid to low handicappers looking to reduce spin from the tee.

Taylormade M2 Driver

In 20 Words Or Less

Cobra Radspeed Drivers

In 20 Words Or Less

A Superior driver built with Aerodynamics, distance, accuracy and consistency, with a model available suitable for all levels of player.

Taylormade M2 First Impressions

The first thing we noticed about the Taylormade M2 driver was how light it felt and how well it cut through the air on the downswing.

This driver will feel really good for anyone with a slower swing speed. It cuts through the air like a dream and delivers smooth, buttery contact when you pure it.

The M Family

The M2 is joined by the M6 and M4 drivers. The M6 more closely resembles the SIM drivers from Taylormade as it has an even more pronounced rear weight. The M4 is a bit more subtle but does have a more satisfying sound and feel than both the M2 and M6.

Cobra Radspeed – First Impressions

“Like it’s predecessor, the Speedzone driver, the Radspeed feels light and wieldy in the hands. You can feel and hear the quality materials used after your first swing.

We were really impressed with the milled face of this driver. It feels incredible and is extremely reactive.

The Radspeed is really starting to challenging the biggest names in the driver department like the Pings, Taylormades and Titleists.

The Radspeed Family

The Radspeed XB driver features back-biased radial weighting (20 grams in the back and 8 in the front) which allows for higher, straighter shots.

The Radspeed XD driver features heel-biased weighting (8 grams in front, 10 in the middle and 14 in the back) perfect for those looking to avoid a slice.

Cobra Radspeed – Who are the for?

The Cobra Radspeed driver is for low to mid handicappers who prefer forward-biased center of gravity.

The bottom line is that the Cobra Radspeed driver will produce less spin off the tee than even the Titleist Tsi3. It’s remarkably workable as well thanks to the two adjustable weights in the front and back.

Our only real gripe about this driver is that adjusting the weights is kind of tricky. It’s not as easy as the sliding weight of the Titleist TSi3 driver. The TSi3 driver also has a slew of custom shaft options.
