Cobra Speedzone Driver Adjustment Guide + (CHART)


How do I adjust my Cobra Speedzone Driver?

You can use the hosel to adjust the Cobra Speedzone Driver. Increasing the loft will increase the trajectory by 1 degree and the spin rate by 450rpm. Similarly, decreasing the loft results in reducing the spin rate by 450rpm and trajectory by 1 degree.

The Cobra King Speedzone driver set is a set of two drivers comprising the Cobra King Speedzone driver and the Cobra King Speedzone Xtreme driver. The drivers support two types of adjustment, namely, the loft and the weight.

Both the Cobra King drivers support eight different settings for their lofts. These settings help you to increase or lower the loft by a maximum of 1.5°. There are also draw specific settings for the standard and changed lofts.

Increasing or decreasing the loft will change the trajectory, spin rate and launch accordingly. 

The Cobra King Speedzone driver features weight adjustment support for both its front and back. On the other hand, the Cobra King Speedzone Xtreme driver comes with a fixed weight on its back. This driver supports weight adjustment only in its front.

Cobra Speedzone driver hosel adjustment

The Cobra King Speedzone driver comes with an adjustable hosel that allows the player to choose from seven different lofts apart from the standard or default loft. This adjustment must be done using the wrench that comes along with the driver.

The steps to adjust the hosel of the Cobra Speedzone driver are given below.

  1. Insert the wrench into the screw located right behind the clubhead of the Speedzone driver.
  2. Turn the wrench a few times to the right until it becomes loose.
  3. Release the club shaft gently from its position inside the clubhead.
  4. Align the desired loft marking on the club hosel adapter with the window present on the hosel sleeve under the standard loft marked on the clubhead.
  • The -1° and -1.5° settings on the right of the standard loft setting decrease the default loft accordingly. These settings result in the clubface opening up slightly along with less spin and lower ball launch than with the standard loft. The -1.5° setting is the least loft setting possible for the driver.
  • The +1° and +1.5° settings on the left of the standard loft setting increase the default loft appropriately. These settings cause the clubface to close and cause more spin and a higher launch of the ball when compared to the standard loft of the driver. The +5° setting is the highest loft setting possible for the driver.
  • The STD°D, -1°D and +1°D help to adjust the driver for a draw setting with an upright clubhead. The STD°D setting makes no changes to the loft of the driver. However, it sets the clubhead in the most upright position with low bias. The -1°D setting lowers the standard loft by 1° with a draw setting and a +1°D setting raises the standard loft by 1.
  1. Reinsert the club shaft back in its original position with the above alignment.
  2. Tighten the screw by turning the wrench the same number of times as in Step 2 to the left. A single click indicates that you can stop the turning process.

 

Cobra Speedzone driver weight adjustment

Cobra Speedzone driver adjustment

The Cobra King Speedzone driver features adjustable or movable weights on its front and back. These weights help golfers in adjusting their launch angles. Like the hosel adjustment, the weight adjustment can also be done using the wrench that accompanies the driver.

The driver comes with a heavier weight in the front setting than in the back. It is equipped with a 14g weight in the front and a 2g weight in the back. The positions of both these weights can be swapped or interchanged.

  1. Turn the wrench in the counterclockwise direction until the weights become loose and can be slid off easily.
  2. Remove the weights and put them back with the heavier weight in the rear and the lighter weight in the front.
  3. Turn the wrench in the clockwise direction to tighten the weights and secure them in position.
  4. Stop the turning process when you hear a single click sound.

 

It’s advisable not to tighten the weights using your hand. This can result in the weights coming off loose when you swing your driver and cause an adverse impact on your game.

The impacts of the weights on the Cobra King Speedzone driver are highlighted below.

  • With the heavier weight to the front and the lower weight to the back, the driver features more Center of Gravity (CG). This will often result in lowering the spin and increasing the distance. The launch angle is also lesser with the 14g weight positioned to the front.
  • With the lighter weight to the front and the higher weight to the back, the driver renders more moment of inertia. As a result, there is more spin and less distance. It is also more forgiving with this setting. The launch angle is pretty high with the 14g weight placed at the rear.

 

Apart from the two fitted stock weights, the Cobra King Speedzone driver allows the use of 6g, 10g and 18g sole weights.

 

How to adjust the Cobra Speedzone Xtreme driver settings

There are a few noteworthy features that make the Cobra King Speedzone Xtreme driver perform differently from the Cobra King Speedzone driver.

Firstly, the Xtreme driver comes with an additional loft option of 12°. Secondly, the driver is designed to be more forgiving by nature. Finally, the weight on the rear is not adjustable. Only the front weight can be adjusted.

The hosel of the Cobra King Speedzone Xtreme driver can be adjusted in the same way as the Speedzone driver.

There are eight possible loft settings including the standard loft setting.

These eight settings include three settings exclusively for a draw with and without variations to the standard loft.

The following steps walk you through the process of adjusting the Xtreme driver using the wrench provided with it.

  1. Fit the wrench inside the screw present at the rear of the Speedzone Xtreme driver clubhead.
  2. Turn the wrench anticlockwise until it becomes loose. You may have to do a few turns before you notice the loosening of the screw.
  3. Remove the club shaft without using force by pulling it gently from the clubhead.
  4. Align the window on the hosel sleeve located below the standard loft marking on the clubhead with the preferred loft marking on top of the club hosel adapter.
  • The +1.5° and +1° settings to the left of the setting marked for the standard loft increase the original loft appropriately. The higher settings result in the closing of the clubface along with more spin and higher ball launch as against the standard loft of the driver. The driver has the highest possible loft with the +5° setting.
  • The -1° and -1.5° settings to the right of the setting indicated for the standard loft decrease the original loft accordingly. The lower settings result in the opening of the clubface combined with less spin and lower ball launch when compared to the standard loft of the driver. The driver features the lowest possible loft with the –5° setting.
  • The STD°D, -1°D and +1°D support the driver adjustment for a draw setting with an upright clubhead. The STD°D setting brings no change to the original loft of the driver. However, this setting results in the most upright position of the clubhead with low bias. The -1°D setting results in the original loft getting reduced by 1° and a +1°D setting increases the original loft by 1°.
  1. Put the club shaft once again in its original position with the desired alignment.
  2. Insert the wrench into the screw once again and turn it clockwise until you hear a single click signaling that the turning process can be stopped.
