I am happy with my Cobra S9-1 Pro-S drivers. When you do everything correctly, you won't be disappointed. But if you don't swing properly, the club will make you regret. Smile

If you don't mind the ultra big head of the L5V... after a while i find the head a bit too big though it is forgiving.. the S9 is also a good driver... some of us here is using it with great results. Match it with a good shaft if you can and you must. Cheers.

Previously, I was using the LD speed with the Factory fitted Shaft. Everytime I swing, my club head tilted and keep slicing the ball. So ever since then, I dun trust factory shafts anymore.

I tested both during the Cobra Demo Day on Saturday at MBGC. I found the S9-1 more forgiving. The L5V was nice but I didn't quite like the sound (a bit like my Nike 5900 "clang"). In any case, both clubs were good.

What I didn't like were the stock shafts which I found to be whippy. Maybe it's cause I've gotten too used to my Graman #5 stiff. Playing with those clubs reminded me of my old Burner shaft. If you do decide to pick up either of the clubs, I'd recommend a change in shafts... or at least considering a change in shafts Smile

Hey Viper, I guess the best would be for you to head down to the range to try it out yourself. Everyone has a different swing, and a different result when they hit the ball - Sooo oooo ... the best advise anyone can give is to get you to try it out yourself!

That said - Im a big big cobra fan when it comes to drivers. Been using titleist heads, taylormade heads, and recently i tried the S9-1 D ... and im probably sticking with it for a long time to come. The shaft kinda sucks though, but usually ppl get it changed. There are a couple of good fitters around, so please feel free to utilize their services!
