Cobra Long Tom Driver Review

Last Updated:

  • At a glance

  • TG Rating 4 out of 5
  • Owner Rating Not yet rated
  • Pros

    The longest driver on our 2012 test, for all testers.

  • Cons

    Predictably, due to the 48-inch shaft, dispersion suffered a little but so much that we couldn't control the ball.

  • RRP £289

What we say...

Initially TG’s gear team Jon and Dave C were sceptical about putting Long Tom in the test because the 48-inch shaft is right on the legal limit and completely different to anything else on the market. But the results were much better than anticipated and it was the longest on test thanks to the extra clubhead speed generated by the long shaft . In fact, it was both Jon and Dave’s longest on the day and featured in pro James’ top five.

Predictably dispersion suffered a little but not overly so and most of our team were able to effect some kind of control over the ball. When it came to aesthetics only two of our testers rated it lower than four. Pro James said it sat perfectly square and had perfect dimensions while others liked the Persimmonstyle alignment and sweetspot.

In terms of use on the course none of our guys said they would actually put the 48-inch shaft into play but Dave C and pro James said with a different, shorter shaft , this would have a real chance of making the bag.

Looks: 4.1 Feel: 3.9 Forgiveness: 3.6 Distance: 5.0 Dispersion: 3.5
