Cobra zl driverA few of the Cobra sponsored tour players were testing the companies new adjustable-face ZL driver at Liberty National in the past week. These players included Geoff Ogilvy, Ian Poulter, Camilo Villegas and J.B. Holmes. Olgivy and Villegas have also Tweeted about the product.

According to Brian Parker, Cobra's manager of tour promotions, Ogilvy saw the club as a prototype, but Tuesday was given the final product for the first time. The Aussie had been using a Cobra S9-1 Pro D (10.5°), but after just one afternoon's practice with a ZL (9.5) set 1° open with an Aldila RIP 80X shaft, he is planning to use the club this week in the Barclays Championship.

(Alidla's RIP shaft will be available in 2010.)

"The club is easier to draw and easier to fade [than the S9-1]," said Ogilvy, during his practice round this morning. "But it's harder to hit it really wide."

The ZL driver has a titanium face and body, but the crown is made from weight-saving carbon fiber. A weight plug—which is not adjustable—has been positioned on the lower-back portion of the club to increase the moment of inertia, lower the center of gravity and create a higher initial launch angle. Using an included torque wrench, the ZL driver will allow golfers to set the head into one of three different face angles – 1° open, square or 1° closed.

Cobra's ZL driver will be available to the public November 1.

    Currently I use the 9.5 L4V. I tried the new ZL 10.5 driver this past Saturday at a Cobra Demo and was truely surprised. Compared to the L4V using the same swing, the ball traveled an additional average of 20-25 yards. This was tested with the new Voodoo “Lite” Graphite shaft. Can’t wait to see more reviews from others and the pros so I can put this club in my bag.

Tell me what you're thinking...
