Cobra Bio Cell+

The Bio Cell+ Driver Review

The Cobra Bio Cell+ driver is the by far the most colorful driver range on the market. Available in five different crown colours (red, blue, orange, gray & black)
As with the standard Bio Cell driver the Bio Cell+ comes with Cobra’s MyFly8 adjustable hosel, however the loft options are slightly different with options 1 degree lower than the Bio Cell, This is to accommodate the better players who tend to prefer the lower lofts.

The Cobra Bio Cell+ has a lower centre of gravity (28 percent) aided by the light weight crown, the “Venollum” crown is 4.1 grams lighter than the standard titanium crown on the standard Bio Cell driver range. With the Lower COG, the higher launch and lower spin rates in comparison to the standard Bio Cell will appeal again to the better players market, Golfers who suffer from high spin rates will be looking toward the Bio Cell+ over the standard Bio Cell for their longer low spinning drives. The head size of the Bio Cell+ is 440CC, 20 CC smaller than the Bio Cell. There is a small difference in the MyFly8 Hosel this year in comparison to the previous model (AMP cell Pro) there is no longer a fade setting on the hosel, This is said to be due the that from Cobra’s research only 7% of AMP Cell customers actually used it on a fade setting, none of which were Tour players. At its lowest loft of 8 degrees the face will sit around 1 degree open and when in the highest loft 11 degrees the face is said to sit perfectly square.

The stock shaft is the Matrix red Tie 6Q3 which is stiff is a 62 gram high kick point, mid torque shaft. For those who like a heavier shaft, you can upgrade the shaft without charge to the Diamana D+72 which is 74g is stiff and 75g is X-flex.

Verdict

This in my opinion would be my driver of choice without their being the Callaway Alpha in the world. The ball speeds, flight & accuracy of this driver were very impressive however some may think the feel is a little too solid, but its something that I really like. Looks wise again the Cobra designers are going for the younger market and maybe I’m getting a little old as the flashy white head and colourful crown are simply not for me, if I had my way a simple black headed model would be on offer too for those who don’t want to standout like Poulter and Fowler. All in all I think this has been the biggest surprise for me when testing the driver for 2014 and if you can stand the looks, the performance is really quite impressive.
