News & Tour

NCG's test team review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the Cobra ZL Encore driver...

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“The shaft didn’t feel strong or consistent, and I’m not sure about using electric yellow. It’s a bit gaudy. The shape is lovely, though.” JaW
“The standard shaft was too weak for all of us so a custom fitting for a better player is a much. Personally, I quite like the looks – they are strong.” DM
“A superb shape and it feels very quick out of the middle. I get why the bright colours might not be for the traditionalist, but for the strong, modern player, it’s fantastic. It comes in an all-white version, too, which is used on Tour by Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter.” JoW
