Cobral5vdriver Cobra Golf has just released a new, adjustable-face driver in three versions, the L5V X, L5V F and L5V M. The X version is designed for players with a swing speed faster than 104 mph, the F is for players with a swing speed of 87-108, and the M is for players with a swing speed of 76-97.
According to the company, the face of the L5V is the largest ever made by Cobra, which should help to create a larger, more-forgiving sweetspot.
But one of the most-interesting features of the L5V is its ability to let golfers shift the angle of the face by adjusting the hosel. Using a wrench that comes with the L5V, golfers can adjust the hosel from a 0-position (factory spec) to a 1-position (1° more closed). Click on the image to see the club in the 0-position.
The face and body of the L5V are made from titanium, while the crown is made from an extremely light carbon composite material. The weight that would have been in the crown has been shifted down and farther back in the head to lower the center of gravity and increase the moment of inertia. These qualities should make it easier to hit higher drives with less spin for increased distance.
The Cobra L5V comes standard with a Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana Red Board shaft and has a suggested retail price of $480.
