Cobra Darkspeed Woods: 2024 Review

The Cobra Darkspeed Woods lineup for 2024.

Cobra fairway woods have developed a reputation for quality, and their new Cobra Darkspeed Woods promise to evolve on this even further. With a complete construction overhaul, these woods are designed to improve on almost every aspect of their predecessors: the Cobra Aerojet and the beloved LTDx.

The Cobra Darkspeed woods include three different models: The Darkspeed LS, the Darkspeed X, and the Darkspeed MAX. Each is meant to suit a different golfer, and we will dive into that as we cover the following for all of them:

  • Model Summary
  • Key features
  • Who it’s for

Let’s dive into each of these new fairway woods and figure out which would be best for you.

Cobra Darkspeed LS Fairway Wood

The Cobra Darkspeed LS is a low-spin, highly workable fairway wood that maximizes distance and shot-shaping capability. It is the only model on the list with their new titanium head construction and more compact shape to provide a more tour-inspired look.

Key Features

Tour-Inspired Shaping Compact clubhead shape provides a Tour-validated look at address
Titanium Construction Multi-material construction includes lightweight titanium with a carbon crown to improve weight distribution and provide more distance
Tungsten Weighting for Tighter Dispersion Both internal and external tungsten weights are positioned at the heel and toe to improve stability and tighten dispersion
PWRSHELL/PWR-BRIDGE PWRSHELL insert and suspended PWR-BRIDGE design return to add more flex to the face to increase ball speed
H.O.T. Face AI-designed multi-thickness H.O.T. face returns to improve speed and spin across the entire face
Adjustable Heel, Toe, and Rear Weights Adjustable (through swapping, not sliding) heel, toe, and back weights to improve adjustability to fit any shot scenario

Who It’s For

The Cobra Darkspeed LS is designed for experienced golfers looking for a tour-inspired fairway wood that maximizes distance and workability. Its low, aggressive ball flight path and impressive ball speed make it a great tool in a consistent hitter’s arsenal. Since it isn’t the most forgiving, those with higher handicaps may not have the best experience with the LS and should consider other models in the lineup that focus a bit more on forgiveness and high launch.

Cobra Darkspeed X Fairway Wood

The Cobra Darkspeed X is a versatile fairway wood designed to bring the best of both worlds regarding distance and forgiveness. With a slightly larger head size and more rear-biased weight distribution, the Darkspeed X is meant to provide more consistency across the entire face without sacrificing too much distance.

Key Features

PWRSHELL/PWR-BRIDGE PWRSHELL insert and suspended PWR-BRIDGE design return to add more flex to the face to increase ball speed
H.O.T. Face AI-designed multi-thickness H.O.T. face returns to improve speed and spin across the entire face
Swappable Rear Weight A single external, adjustable weight at the back of the club head to improve forgiveness and allow golfers some choice in the balance between clubhead speed and forgiveness
Tighter Dispersion A lightweight carbon crown positions CG lower and toward the rear to improve forgiveness and tighten dispersion

Who It’s For

The Cobra Darkspeed X is an everyman’s fairway wood designed to bring competitive distance in a forgiving package that improves consistency on the course. The only golfers that may not like the X are those looking to maximize workability, but luckily the LS model exists to fill that niche.

Cobra Darkspeed MAX Fairway Wood

The Cobra Darkspeed MAX is designed to maximize forgiveness and provide some slice correction for golfers who struggle with consistency with their woods. This club is firmly in the “game improvement” category, and that is its unique advantage for many golfers.

Key Features

PWRSHELL/PWR-BRIDGE PWRSHELL insert and suspended PWR-BRIDGE design return to add more flex to the face to increase ball speed
H.O.T. Face AI-designed multi-thickness H.O.T. face returns to improve speed and spin across the entire face
Max Forgiveness and Draw-Bias Control Adjustable heel and rear weight allow for maximum forgiveness and tweakable slice correction
Tighter Dispersion A lightweight carbon crown positions CG lower and toward the rear to improve forgiveness and tighten dispersion
Women’s Club Option The Darkspeed MAX Women’s model boasts many of the same features with a more flexible stock shaft, higher loft, and a lighter overall build to improve swing speed

Who It’s For

The Cobra Darkspeed MAX is designed for newer or higher-handicap golfers who want a game-improvement fairway wood. It sacrifices some distance and most of the other models’ workability to maximize launch and forgiveness on off-center strikes. Golfers who hit their fairway woods pretty consistently will likely want to reach for the Darkspeed X instead.

I’ve been at Worldwide Golf Shops for 6 years, and I’ve been playing golf for 23 years. I have played a few mini tour events but now compete occasionally at the amateur level– currently a +2.1 handicap. I am a bit of a tinkerer when it comes to golf and golf clubs. I enjoy testing all aspects of different products, utilizing various fitting systems and learning about all the different club shafts, club lengths, golf balls, and putter styles. Not just for my game, but to help customers of all calibers.
