About this Review: This review is my honest opinion of the club, which I purchased with my own money in June of 2022.

My take

The Cobra LTDX One Length Hybrid is filling a gap in my bag between my 3 wood and other 5 Hybrid from Cobra. It’s easy to hit and the 7 iron length is a great advantage in not having to think about another swing change moving from my irons to my hybrid. For those who struggle with making good contact with their current hybrid, the One-Length is a great option.

What I was looking for

I have been hitting a 5 wood for the last few years and recently moved to a 3 wood. This left a yardage gap between my 3 wood (235 yards) and 5 hybrid (200 yards) Cobra One Length F9. The LTDx filled in nicely and lands me right at 220 yards carry.

Why I chose this club

I was already so accustomed to my Cobra F9 that this club was my first choice. I spent time hitting Hybrids from Srixon, Taylormade, and Callaway, and I landed on the LTDx due to the 7 iron length. I struggle with hybrids on occasion due to having to change my swing for the longer shaft, and the length just makes it easier to hit.

What I love about it

  • Distance: Although I would like to see five more yards out of this club, I have been pretty happy with the distance overall. When comparing it to other hybrids I hit, I reached very similar distances with no noticeable loss in yardage.
  • Feel: The LTDx feels great at impact and gives me good feedback on missed hits.
  • Sound: I love the crisp metallic “click” sound of this club face. One of my favorite clubs to hear on the course.
  • Workability: Although I can work the ball flight on this hybrid, its offset where the shaft meets the clubhead is really designed to keep it straight or turn a draw.
  • Shaft Feel: I love the KBS shaft in this hybrid. A very nice feel on my swing and very consistent.
  • Shaft Performance: This shaft is very consistent and accurate. I have always enjoyed KBS graphite shafts.
  • Grip Feel: I have the MCC Midsize grip on all my clubs and I really enjoy it. Very nice feel in the hands and I never lose my grip with them.

Issues I’ve encountered

  • Forgiveness: On a well-struck ball, I get great performance out of this club. But if it is hit a bit thin, the height of my ball flight is significantly impacted. A thinned shot is going to produce a lot of topspin, which sends the ball at a very low arc and very short.
  • Adjustability: This club does not offer any adjustability.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Although I do enjoy the shape, I would love to see a matte finish on the top of this hybrid. I am just not a fan of a shiny crown on clubs.
  • Launch Angle: This is the biggest downside on this club. If I hit it square on the face, I will get a 70–80ft peak height. If I catch it just a groove thin, then it drops significantly, to around 40ft at the peak.
  • Spin: Although I don’t have the launch monitor numbers, I feel the spin is adequate on this hybrid when struck in the center of the face. If I catch it thin, I see a much lower launch that is going to equate to 1000–1500 less RPMs of spin.

Best shot with this club

I was on a par 4 with my brother and was not feeling great about my driver that day. I pulled the LTDx out of the bag and swung a smooth swing, sending my ball straight down the fairway off the tee, and actually out driving my playing partner with his driver!

Value for the money vs. other options

This hybrid is competitively priced with the market and really does not have much competition in the One Length category. Comparatively, the Callaway Rogue ST Hybrid would be next in line to take its place in my bag and is actually a higher cost.

Final verdict

Overall the Cobra LTDx One Length hybrid is staying in the bag. I can consistently hit the ball straight and in the fairway. I have even been able to hold greens with it as well. I would like to see a bit more forgiveness on mishits, but overall I am very happy with the club.
