Cobra Season Opener LE Darkspeed Driver

Cobra Season Opener Driver

Every year, as if by instinct, our senses begin to bring us back to the calming and familiar place we know as Augusta National Golf Club. It’s more than a geographical location or even a tournament, it’s a state of mind. We feel the gentle warmth of Spring and somehow smell the azaleas, even if we’ve never actually had the pleasure of taking in the scent. It’s the sign that we’ve made it, once again, to another golf season. 

Another wonderful addition to the anticipation of the Masters, at least for the gear-obsessed, is the numerous limited edition releases we see from our favorite companies. Whether it’s apparel, accessories, or even golf clubs, the industry feels our excitement and wants to make sure they have something to commemorate the moment. Cobra Golf has carved out a reputation for regularly delivering unique editions of their drivers at key times throughout the year, and their Season Opener LE Darkspeed driver is a perfect example of that.

Balancing the somewhat menacing look of the Darkspeed with visions of dewy grass and the sounds of birds chirping is no easy feat. In fact, it’s probably not possible at all. Rather, the Season Opener LE Darkspeed brings to life the feeling of tension breaking as the quiet is interrupted by the crack of a well-struck tee shot. The sole displays symbols of Augusta National. Green, yellow, and shadowy azaleas decorate it, and a specially designed headcover is an even more present reminder.  

Setting the Season Opener LE Darkspeed behind the ball rips away these genteel feelings, with the now-familiar outline of Cobra’s flagship driver inviting the golfer to swing hard and let it fly. Just a hint of green frames the head, along with some very subtle yellow highlights. If you’re not familiar with the Darkspeed yet, a great place to start would be the THP Forum, where it’s garnered over 2,000 posts since its release a little over two months ago. 

The crown of the Cobra Season Opener

With a heavy focus on aerodynamics, adjustability, and weight manipulation, the Darkspeed gets very high marks from our readers (and just about everywhere on social media) when it comes to providing ample forgiveness and tons of speed. The Season Opener LE is offered in the X and LS version of the head, in both 9 and 10.5 degrees of loft. It comes with an exclusive shaft, the Mitsubishi Tensei 1k Black, and the previously mentioned limited-edition headcover. 

Priced at $649, the Cobra Season Opener LE Darkspeed Driver is available at cobragolf.com.
