Cobra Radspeed Vs. Taylormade M4 Driver Comparison Overview
If you are weighing the pros and cons of drivers in the premium category as opposed to ones in the distance category, you have come to the right place. We wanted to see how a premium driver really held up against a more basic distance driver.
So we went out and tested two shining examples of both a distance and a premium driver in the Taylormade M4 and the Cobra Radspeed driver. Find out what you really need to know about these clubs in the following article.
Cobra Radspeed Driver Overview
The Cobra Radspeed driver really impressed us in terms of ball speed.
The Cobra Radspeed features a whopping 28 grams of weight positioned at the front of the club head. For our testers, this meant incredibly low spin off the tee. Our testers were getting average distances of about 281 yards with the Cobra Radspeed driver mainly because it was barely spinning.
Our testers also remarked at how lightweight and comfortable the Radspeed driver was. The carbon fiber crown helps keep the weight down so the 28 gram front weight and the 8 gram rear weight don’t make such a jarring impact.
Testers also noticed a decent amount of forgiveness thanks to the extreme rear 8 gram weight. However, if forgiveness is really what you need, the Radspeed XB and Radspeed XD drivers would be more to your liking.
Taylormade M4 Driver Overview
Of course if forgiveness and distance seem to be your most powerful banes, you need to check out the Taylormade M4 driver.
The Taylormade M4 features the famous Twist Face technology that does a great job of straightening out drives. So right from the tee, you can count on shots that land on the fairway. Distance was comparable to the Radspeed but ultimately lesser.
The Taylormade M4 was yielding drives that were an average of 7 yards shorter than the Radspeed driver. This had a lot to do with the pronounced spin that the Taylormade M4 produces.
While the Taylormade M4 produces straight shots and won’t require a fast swing speed to yield favorable distances; that’s pretty much the most you can expect from it.
Not surprisingly the Cobra Radspeed yielded better distance while still maintaining an adequate degree of forgiveness. It outperformed the Taylormade M4 in almost every regard; but the M4 is still the better option for high handicappers.
