Mexico Open at Vidanta

Why We Like It

We get that making a hybrid with a trampoline face is desirable, but all that ball speed without the ability to launch the ball isn’t much use. The ideal hybrid needs its internal weight to be low to boost that launch angle. Darkspeed uses an ingenious internal bridge-like weight bar low and close to the face to make it easier to launch shots high. At the same time, this structure allows the thin face to wrap around the leading edge for maximum ball speed.

How To Use Your Hybrid Effectively

Most amateurs don’t swing fast enough to make their long irons go farther than their middle irons, so hybrids are essential for longer shots into greens. Plus, the hybrid’s design adds forgiveness and playability. Here, Cameron McCormick demonstrates how to use these clubs effectively.

COBRA DARKSPEED

The DARKSPEED hybrid blends distance and high launch to provide more forgiveness on longer approach shots and adaptability across different lies.
