Excerpt: The Cobra ZL Encore is a driver you can feel confidant with. After experiencing another driver I thought I was going to do well with until it failed due to a design flaw, and yes, GolfSmith did warranty it for me, the Cobra ZL Encore is Amazing!
Excerpt: Have always been a Cobra fan, woods and irons. Bought the Cobra Amp Cell and was quite happy with it but thought I'd try the TaylorMade R1. Hated that driver so exchanged it for the RocketBalz Stage 2. Much better in my opinion, sound and performance. Saw the Cobra ZL Encore and thought the Red one looked sharp so figured I'd give it a try. Bought 9.5 Red, regular shaft. Have a tendency to fade slightly so immediately set it to closed.
Conclusion: One of the best things that happened to my game was the purchase of this driver. I have had 3 drivers over the last 4 years and this one by far has been the best. Red is a very cool color, but most importantly is the distance. It is 20 yds longer than my Titleist 910D2. Straight ball mostly. It is adjustable only with face angle....not loft. 55G weighted shaft is excellent for us mid speed swingers (high 80s - low 90s).
Summary: I have what some calls a nice problem. I buy a new driver about once a month. Get tired of them or dont hit it as well as i think i should and sell it. We all know its all ways the drivers fault. Anyway ive tried them all. Taylor best Cleveland best Callaway best, Ping best. Have not tried Titlist so cant compare it. I just bought the new Cobra encore a couple of weeks ago and ive never owned a driver that i like as well as this club. Can not dsy enough. Just get one.
It looks like I'm still in a search for a driver to fell in love with.

Summary: It is a beauty. I bought it to replace my old Mizuno. I tried it on the driving range 2-3 times - it is OK. But didn't make the crisp sound what Mizuno did. The sound is more dull. I have to try it on the golf course.
Summary: It is the most forgiving driver I have ever hit. I get a higher trajectory and more distance when I hit it correctly. When I don't it is still playable. It might help that everyone I have played with has commented on how good the club looks. Which doesn't mean squat unless it performs, and it normally does. Well enough that I got the 3 wood T-railer to go along with it which is equally impressive.
