Cobra Speedzone Vs Taylormade Sim 2 Comparison And Review 2021
The Taylormade SIM 2 and Cobra Speedzone drivers have some similarities. For instance, they both are tuned to deliver low spin off the tee for better distance.
They would both also be an asset in the bag of high to mid handicappers.
But which one is better overall? Which driver offers benefits outside of distance? Find out in the following comparison overview.
Cobra Speedzone Driver Overview
The Cobra Speedzone feels light in the hands but there is weight all over the place in strategic locations in the head and face.
First of all, the Cobra Speedzone driver features an adjustable weight that can be moved from the back of the head to the front.
We liked the weight in the front the best because this positioning produced low flight trajectories and incredibly low spin rates.
The result was a piercing ball speed. In fact, the Cobra Speedzone driver was bout 4 yards longer on average than the Taylormade SIM 2 – and that’s really saying something because the Taylormade SIM 2 plays long as well.
We also really liked the feel of the Cobra Speedzone. It has a milled face that essentially feeds into the head. It gave great feedback and still yielded good distance on shots that hit towards the crown and the sole.
Taylormade SIM 2 Driver Overview
The Taylormade SIM 2 is loaded with features that help with distance and forgiveness. However, this driver is lacking a bit in terms of workability.
Like the Cobra Speedzone, the Taylormade SIM 2 features a front-weighting that helps to reduce spin off the tee.
We were also getting similar launch angles. The Taylormade SIM 2 didn’t have as nice a feel as the Speedzone driver though.
There were also some issues with shot shaping – namely that we were unable to work the ball very much with this driver.
It comes with an adjustable hosel but in general, it was pretty ineffectual for precise ball placement.
The Taylormade SIM 2 is a good distance driver and would work well for beginners and high-handicappers all the same.
The Cobra Speedzone will afford you more performance as your game gets better. It will definitely be the better choice if you are looking for a driver that will grow with you as your game advances.
Still the Taylormade SIM 2 isn’t a bad choice if you’re looking for forgiveness and distance.
