I have hit it at a retailer. It was nice.  My buddy plays Cobra and really likes the driver.  It was the model before the Amp, but plays similar.

I would skip this one and go for the newer amp cell as you can change the lofts and it is a much better club

I have hit both and would pony up a little more to get the amp cell.  Just my opinion though

You can mess around with the lofts to see what gets you the best results rather then guessing say a 10.5 is best. Also it will have some draw bias options which may help you if you're just starting

Ok cool, looks like ill get an adjustable loft probably. I have a bad hook so probably fade bias would help me.

Having the adjustable loft gives you the option of finding the optimum loft for you and your swing. As you improve or go through swing changes you might need to change that loft. It makes it easier and cheaper when that time comes because it saves you from needing a new driver.

If you are on a budget, spending a bit more now will save you with future clubs and I love my Cobra driver.  I do not use any bias but I have changed the loft to get more distance

Yea since I'm going to put up more money for a Driver how does the Nike cover 2.0 perform compared to the Cobra? I'm in Alaska and dont exactly have the option of going to a big name golf store and trying out a lot of clubs.

I hit them both today actually. They both felt good but the cobra goes farther and straighter, well for me at least. I like the covert 2.0, but for the price difference, the cobra is the one to go for in my opinion. Nothing against the Nike, but the Cobra is a better deal.

That sounds like a great birthday present! I'm going to order the Bio Cell myself in the next couple days! Cobra is a little underrated but definitely makes some fantastic equipment! I'm a huge fan myself haha

    • I hurt my shoulder a while back. After a doctor's visit, and a  very minor surgical proceedure, I was told 4-6 weeks for return to golf. That was about 3 weeks ago. My shoulder feels great, and normal everyday use is not a problem. However, a full swing of a golf club is not considered "normal everyday use" by my doctor. I am most likely not going  press my luck for at least another 2 weeks.  As posted above, you should go see your doctor. What you might think is tendonitis, might be something worse. Plus after a week's rest, and your elbow feeling great, it might not actually be ready for the rigors of a golf swing. 
    • For any hobby/pasttime the constant pursuit of "progress" can produce a diminishing return.  I'm fighting it right now.  I've been practicing a lot and watching my scores get worse and getting fed up.  But why should I be working so hard and getting frustrated at a game that I'm supposed to be playing for fun?  This past weekend at a member meetup I shot a "stellar" 122 and had a blast doing it.  And that's the real point, isn't it?  Having fun?  If you're playing golf "for fun" (i.e., not to put food on the table and roof over your head) but need to somehow reward yourself when you don't swear at bad shots, maybe your focus in the wrong place.  That's all I'm saying... I may be wrong.
    • I guess considering I got coached in the mid 80's and have never altered (though I have tampered with minor things) the swing since then, most likely my reverse C is a position I will play for a long time unless I really put in the time for new coaching or my back tells me I cannot do that anymore.  Hopefully I will be able to strengthen my core muscles so that this swing does not affect me
    • One thing that helped me improve my game was to take an honest look at my round. I would write out every hole and what happened. Something like this: Hole 1 [] - bogey - driver to right rough. 50deg from 120 to front bunker. 58 to 15ft. 2 putts (15,1) I did this for about 4 rounds and immediately started to see some common themes. Here is a direct example out of my file from 2014 for the first hole that paved the way to me dropping at least 5 shots per round. Hole 1 [] - bogey - driver to right rough. 50deg from 120 to front bunker. 58 to 15ft. 2 putts (15,1) Hole 1 [gir] - par - driver to right rough. 58deg from 92 to 20ftt. 2 putts (20,3) Hole 1 [gir] - bogey - driver to left bunker. PW from 128 to 60ft long. 3 putts (60,7, 1) Hole 1 [fw,gir] - par - crap driver in fairway. 9 iron from 140 to 22ft. 2 putts (22,1) I remember when I wrote that last one out kind of laughing. That hole felt easy to make a par on once I was on the fairway. I would stand on the tee and be scared of the water right, or the OB left, or the bunkers left, or the cart path (can't count how many times I hit it). Here is the hole I then decided that trying to hit a driver over the bunker on the left was stupid. I started hitting a hybrid to just short of that bunker. ie: the fattest part of the fairway. I was around 70% pars on that hole. The previous year I was probably something like 40%. It went from my most hated hole to one I enjoyed as it was low stress. A hybrid would never go in the water. Longest I would have in to the pin would be a 7 iron. If the pin was back right I would aim for middle back of the green and call it good. I did this for the remainder of the year. I ended up hitting driver less. About 5 times less. Which, surprise surprise, saved me 5 shots per round :) As the season progressed I dropped my handicap from about 8ish to 4. I have stuck around the 4 since then. I still shot the odd 92, almost always on a course I have never played before. If I have played the course I generally expect to be in the 70s. Now with the advent of things like GameGolf, Sky Golf, and Arccos, you can pretty easily get this information and figure out where you are throwing shots away.
