2020 Cobra Golf T-Rail iron hybrid set

Published

on

Cobra Golf T-RAIL

New for 2020, the Cobra Golf T-Rail (Transitional Rail) super game improvement iron—the company’s first all hollow iron hybrid set.

Cobra T Rail irons fuse a hollow, hybrid shape with an iron face and topline, with the iron-hybrid design aiming to provide golfers with the perfect blend of distance, forgiveness, and accuracy.

According to the company, the hollow body construction creates a lower, deeper CG than traditional cavity-back iron designs. The lower, deeper CG aims to aid golfers in getting the ball in the air and on line easier than conventional cavity-back irons.

Speaking on the new T-Rail irons, Tom Olsavsky, VP of R&D, Cobra Golf, stated

“T-Rail irons make it easy for beginners and golfers who have lost some distance and control to gain the confidence needed to play better and have more fun. Players who need max forgiveness and are looking for more distance will be amazed at how far and straight they hit these, even being able to get them airborne from tough lies.”

The irons feature the brand’s Baffler Rails technology which seeks to provide players with more speed and stability out of every lie through its turf interaction.

The irons also contain a high-strength, forged steel face designed with E9 technology, which includes a thin pocket from heel to toe which is intended to offer maximum ball speed and forgiveness on off-center hits.

The new additions from Cobra arrive in a hollow, iron-hybrid construction in the 5-PW with a 4-hybrid to make a 7-piece set. The irons, which come in a black/blue colorway for men and black/lilac colorway for women, come equipped with Cobra Ultralite 50g graphite shafts (Stiff, Regular and Lite) and Cobra Lamkin REL midsize grips.

Both the Men’s and Women’s T-Rail sets will be available beginning November 1, 2019, and cost $899.

    I have been playing with a senior set of hybrids from Adams and being in my eighties now allows me to continue and enjoy golf. Anyone approaching their senior years consider this type of club.

    Surprised they didn’t make a 3 and 2 iron for better players to use this as a driving iron. Seems like a missed opportunity

    This is the future of iron sets for many of us. Full sets of hybrids with a traditional sand wedge. It’s actually a return to how the game began. Most early clubs were woods with just a rut iron or the like here or there.

    My only concern is that for those who refuse to use head covers these are going to look pretty bad in short order. The various Cleveland models of this type tended to really suffer in this way, so much so that some took to removing the paint altogether.

    I might have to give these a try! I’ve always wanted to play a round with a full hybrid set. Maybe its just what my awful swing needs.

      My step dad got a hand-me-down set of full hybrids from my uncle a couple years ago and he loves them. He’s not an avid golfer, but he hits them better and has more fun.

    Some folks like to just enjoy the fresh air, a nice walk or cart ride, some quality time with their playing partners, a couple beverages, getting away from their family etc. Whatever the case may be, enjoy it! A bag full of hybrid irons will help you do that. Making even the most horrible of swings somewhat reasonable. It’s like taking opioids for pain, just mask it for the short term and then die before you ever figure out the real problem 🙂 golf is fun for everyone!

    There comes a time when a golfer becomes so bad that they should quit instead of carrying a bag full of whistling ginties.

      For most people, there comes a time when one matures enough to not judge others.

      Well I’m 70 years old carry hybrids 2 through 8, have a handicap of 8.5 and the increase in the number of hybrids I carry has resulted in the lowering of my handicap. I hit the hybrids longer higher, more accurately and they land more softly. So an off the top analysis would question your conclusions.

GolfWRX Members Choice: Best driver of 2022

Published

on

What is the best driver in 2022? At GolfWRX, we take great pride in our online community and the cumulative knowledge and experience of our members. Needless to say, that extends to their views on the best driver of 2022.

The bedrock of GolfWRX.com is the community of passionate and knowledgable golfers in our forums, and we put endless trust in the opinions of our GolfWRX members — the most knowledgeable community of golfers on the internet. No other group of golfers in the world tests golf clubs as frequently or as extensively, nor is armed with such in-depth information about the latest technology.

You can see the full results for the best driver of 2022, as well as additional comments, in the forums.

Best driver of 2022: The top 5

1. Titleist TSi3

Titleist Tsi3 sole

What Titleist says: “For players who create more consistent contact and require more precise control over CG placement. With a new Adjustable CG Track Design for advanced speed-tuned performance.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @Audi A-Fore: “TSi3 – a modern ode to the classic 905R. It’s a blend of classic look and feel Titleist with the modern speed and adjustability to fit a wider range of players. Find the right shaft and let it rip, you won’t find a better club even amongst the latest and the greatest.
  • @sandshark: “Titleist TSi3 for me. Titleist topping tour bag counts says a ton, but the TSi3 defies the normal “2 for average joe, 3 for high speed guys” logic and performs for a wider range than any other Titleist driver I can recall. Fast, great adjustability, GREAT sound, has that classic pear 975 look.”
  • @azgolfer64: “Titleist TSi3 hands down is the best driver I have ever hit. Great sound, Great shape, Best distance and low spin.”

You can read what other golfers are saying about the TSi3 driver in the GolfWRX forums, and see our launch piece here.

2. TaylorMade Stealth Plus

What TaylorMade says: “For the last 20 years, Titanium was all the rage. But we have always known that every material has a limit. So, we started pushing the boundaries and now we’re leaving the old race behind to begin a completely new one. A race that drives beyond the here and now to raise the bar for what’s possible.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @johnnylongballz72: Stealth Plus is the GOAT.”
  • @IL2AZ: “The Stealth Plus ability to seperate launch and spin coupled with its consistency across the face and high ball speeds is the winner for me. First TM driver that I have seen tangible improvement over the 16 M2.”
  • @OrangeHog: “I switched from my OG SIM driver and have gained 10-15 yards with a remarkable improvement in forgiveness that I didn’t expect. More importantly, though, is the optimized spin rates I’m seeing. Previously with the SIM I would get the occasional low spin dipper. With the Stealth, however, I’ve seen much more consistent spin rates that keep me in play. I love the matte black finish too. I thought the red face would be a deal breaker but it is barely noticeable.”

3. Ping G425 Max

Ping G425 Max sole

What Ping says: “G425 MAX elevates the moment of inertia to PING’s highest level in history. Forgiveness comes mainly from a 26-gram tungsten movable weight, made possible by weight savings from advancements in the driver’s dragonfly crown technology. The CG-shifting weight can be set in neutral, draw or fade. A T9S+ forged face increases flexing for adding distance.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @EatDrinkRunLSU: “I was fitted for a PING G425 Max in late January and finally got it in late February. I’ve played 81 holes with it in the last 3 weeks. I’ve hit some of the longest drives I’ve ever hit in 25 years of playing golf over the past 3 weeks.”
  • @poryanop: G425 Max – great balance in terms of distance and forgiveness”

4. Callaway Rogue ST Max LS

What Callaway says: “Rogue ST Max LS is a high MOI head built for lower spin along with a stronger trajectory. Players can expect to see a more neutral ball flight, more workability, and lower spin characteristics compared to the Rogue ST Max. It’s a great option for many mid-to-low handicap players.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @Haber: “I voted Rogue Max LS. Had it in the bag a week after release and it’s been solid. Even poor swings tend to not get too far offline.”

5. Callaway Rogue ST Max

Callaway Rogue ST Max

What Callaway says: “Rogue ST Max is our highest MOI head with a slight draw bias that’s built for all levels of golfers. This is the best combination of distance and forgiveness in a Callaway driver.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @BallerNate:The Cally Rogue ST Max is the best Driver I’ve ever hit…period. Went through a process of getting it dialed in and figuring out the right settings for my swing, but now that I have it dialed this Driver is an absolute weapon! My last round at one of the toughest courses in my area, I hit 11/14 Fairways, and the 3 that didn’t were still in play with decent approach shots from the rough. Feels so good to have so much confidence in my Driver, and feel like it gives me a chance to beat my buddies whenever I roll up to the course!! ????
