Cobra Bio Cell Pro Driver

Bio Cell Pro Driver

The Bio Cell Pro is the latest addition to the Cobra family of drivers has been released and I have been given one of the first chances to measure and review it during a sunny may morning on the Trackman..

So whats it all about ?

Screen-Shot-2014-04-28-at-2.32.07-PM

The Bio Cell Pro driver head size is still a 440cc compact design and has been developed from the feedback from the tour players like Poulter & Fowler . The cobra blurb is that the Bio Cell Pro driver has the lowest CG out of all of Cobras driver range and with the forged E9 Bio Cell face, Smart pad technology helping deliver a square face at address. The E9 face technology removes weight from the face and re-positions it low and back to effectively increase sweet spot size and delivering extreme distance.

There are 8 loft settings that allows you the golfer to fine tune the head to deliver the maximum distance to suit your swing through Cobras MyFly8 Technology. There is no option for a draw setting in the Bio Cell Pro driver but allows you to have lofts from 7 – 10 degrees and fade settings in lofts 7.5 / 8.5 / 9.5

The Bio Cell Pro comes at 45″ rather than the 45.25″ in the Bio Cell+ and the 45.75″ in the standard Bio Cell. Standard stock shaft is the Matrix Red Tie (Reg 60g, Stiff 62g & X flex 64g) the Matrix shaft is a mid torque high kick point shaft which aids to the design and want to launch the ball high and low spinning (more info on the Matrix shaft )

Thoughts –

This is yet again a wonderful product from Cobra Golf, the full Titanium head looks far better than the not so good looking two color of the Bio Cell+ but as I said in the Bio Cell+ Review looks aside it was a great performing diver, so I was eager to try the Bio Cell Pro to see if there was any improvement other than looks……… Simply put YES! the Cobra Bio Cell Pro is up there with the best thing I have been able to try. Forgiveness is still up there but the distance was the most notable thing. For those of you who have followed the previous driver reviews my numbers are always around the same carry distances, well with the new Bio Cell Pro I found there was a noticeable distance increase and the feel and forgiveness was up there with the best.

The Bio Cell Pro driver is an absolute must try for the better player market, its looks are still not as nice as others out there, but the performance and distances out way any sort of reservations I may have on the looks. Cobra were asked by the tour players to produce a better driver than the Bio Cell+ driver for the tour and in my honest opinion they have well and truly succeeded, in fact for the small amount of testing I had chance to do with it I’d say they have produced one of the best drivers on tour.

Callaway Big Bertha Alpha Driver

Big Bertha Alpha Driver Review 

The Callaway Big Bertha Alpha driver has hit the shelves. This year has to be one of the most exciting years when it comes to new products being launched and the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha driver is at the top of the pile of drivers people have been looking forward to trying. The Callaway Big Bertha Alpha driver is the first to incorporate a moveable weight system which is positioned in the middle of the head the “Gravity Core” as it’s known has, on one end, weighs 12 grams and the rest of the of the core weighs another 1.5 grams. By flipping the core round in its carbon fibre tube in the centre of the head, it enables the player to insert the heavy end up or down in the tube, moving the heads centre of gravity up or down in the head.  The gravity core allows you to independently adjust the spin without changing the launch angle, so you can set the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha driver up to completely optimise a players launch conditions. read more »

Cobra Bio Cell Driver Review

Cobra Bio Cell Driver Review

The Cobra Bio Cell driver is not for the faint hearted, as for the past few years Cobra has not been shy in getting attention with the colour schemes of their product. The new Bio Cell driver is no different, available in red, blue, orange, silver and black. Cobra are hoping that the paint job is not the only talking point about the Bio cell line of woods. I’m sure the consumer will want more than just a pretty looking driver. read more »

Nike Covert 2.0 VRS &Tour Driver Review

Nike Covert 2.0 VRS & Tour Drivers

The release of the new Nike Covert 2.0 driver has come. With Rory playing well in the desert this week we thought it only right to give you guys our opinion and test results from the new Nike Covert 2.0 VRS & Tour drivers.

The Nike Covert VRS 2.0 Driver

The Nike Covert 2.0 VRS drivers don’t look any different from the top compared to the previous Covert model, but underneath the bonnet there is some changes. According to Nike the new Fly-Brace cavity technology increases the energy transfer which will increase ball speeds and give the player more forgiveness on off centre hits. The redistribution of the weight to the toe and heel of the driver is where the increase of ball speed & stability comes from, so the player can gain extra distance and improved accuracy over the 2013 Covert driver. read more »

Callaway X2 Hot Driver

Callaway X2 Hot Driver

 

After last years X-hot driver being the most successful driver in the Callaway line up, I was a little unsure of what they were going to produce or change to add to the already great performance of the X-Hot. However the X-Hot wasn’t without fault. The main issues I had with the X-Hot were it wasn’t that appealing to look at, the 460cc head and grey crown could be excused for looking a little dull in comparison to the other flashy looking drivers it was competing against. The Callaway X-Hot performed well against the other drivers for 2013 and certainly within our shop was by far the most popular selling driver of 2013. So how does the new kid on the block compare?

Taylormade SLDR Driver Review

The Taylormade SLDR Driver was a mid season launched driver that came as no surprise to anyone who has followed Taylormade’s products over the years, renowned for bringing out new product not long after the launch of the previous club. However in my opinion this was needed as the R1 driver was not good and for the masses far too low spinning and unforgiving.

Having wanted a R1 myself I was very keen when it was launched only to be disappointed very quickly . The looks were smooth, cool and stood out from the rest, that was pretty much were my love for the R1 ended, I found the feel dull and the flight too low spinning and very unforgiving, no matter what shaft I put in, it was not what I’d have expected from a Taylormade product. This unfortunately was the case for not just me, through the custom fitting I have done over the past 12 months I have seen the same reaction from customers trying out the R1, Too low spinning and on off centre hits some really horrible unforgiving flights were observed. So with this in mind I was not surprised to see the new SLDR driver launched not long after the R1’s flop, So how did if fare?

Customer Review – Custom Fitting

DRIVER AND IRON CUSTOM FITTING REVIEW

So I did it!!! I finally went for a club custom fitting. On the agenda, was an afternoon of testing drivers and irons with Head Professional Tom Motley from MotleyGolf based at South Cerney Golf Club, Gloucestershire.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

To give you a little background about myself. I’m 33 years old and been playing for roughly 3 years. I have worked my way to a 7.8 handicap with the help and support of a fantastic coach and have started shooting in the mid-70s on a regular basis. After a year or more of experimenting with different options, spending silly amounts of money on club purchases via eBay and the local golf superstores, I finally decided to remove all doubts and seek help from a professional. read more »
