My friend got one and wants to know where he can buy replacement weights. They don’t have them on the cobra golf website. He doesn’t want to use lead tape, which I already had in my golf bag. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I don't remember which thread I seen it in, but it was also up on Cobra's website about the LA Trono shaft being available in the new Radspeed drivers....but just checked and no sight of it anywhere on their site.  I'm not losing my mind it was on there wasn't it?

It was in the custom shaft options. Not sure if it's still there.

Went and hit a rad speed yesterday....I was all in and committed to it based on reviews....left feeling underwhelmed. 
 

Hit it side by side to the sim2 and epic max ls. I will say the rad was a 9* lofted up vs the others being 10.5*. I really liked the feel of the f9 and speed zone.

 

But the head felt very clicky and did not feel solid at all....a hollow clank lol. Just the shaft they had there messing with strike location, but anyone else having similar experiences?

 

Still bought one cause they gave me a good deal, but I’ll be listing on bst later until I can test further.

I'm amazed by the customer service with Cobra. They ran into an issue with my original order (Radpeed w/ Ventus Black 6X) as their inventory system wasn't updated and they were out of Ventus Black until April. I still wanted the Ventus Black but needed the driver in the meantime as I have an event coming up. They offered to send me either a stock shaft for free or an exotic shaft at a steep discount. I decided to try a Ventus Red 7X. When the shipment for Ventus Black comes in, they'll be sending me a 6X. On top of that they put this as a rush order and upgraded my shipping to next day. Awesome awesome customer service.

Green. When I spoke with golf galaxy, they said cobra gave them an estimated shipping date of 3/1.

 

Really? I'm seeing them in stock at golf galaxy on their website and in store according to the website in all the golf galaxys within 100 miles of me. Are you getting the stock matte green radspeed in 9 with the motore x f1 6x or is it that you are looking for the motore x f1 7? The 6 is the stock offering and should literally be on shelves all over the place, the 7 is special though.

I miss spoke, I meant PGA Superstore. But yes it’s the stock Motore X F1 6x.

Just got back from hitting a bucket. It was pretty windy today at 30km/h. Hit this side by side with the F9, found the Radspeed to be much more stable and lower spin. I was hitting into the wind the Radspeed had a stronger flight, the f9 spun up a little bit. So far seeing a huge improvement. Also, Velocore seems to do as advertised, this is the face over 20 shots.

 

Very happy I went with the Turbulence/Turbo Yellow colorway, anyone who likes gloss will be pleased with this colorway.

Got my RadSpeed 10.5 Black / Turbo Yellow.  Pair with my VA Composites Drago shaft, it's a visual master piece.  The matte crown and the matte shaft are perfect, and the turbo yellow which is more like a neon green matches the green Drago branding like a match made it heaven.

 

Let's just hope it plays as good as it looks!

I got my RADSPEED 9º to replace my F9 9º.

 

I put it on my Ventus 6X Black and could not keep it from going right using the same -1º /weight forward setting I use on my F9.

 

So I set up on a launch monitor/simulator and hit a few dozen shots playing with settings and comparing numbers.

 

I have settled on +1ºD weight back on the RAD.

 

This setting has decreased spin by 425RPM on average (from 3050 to 2625), increased launch by 1.3º (from 15.1 to 16.4), and increase carry by 11 yards (from 278 to 289) over the F9. 

 

I will get it out on the course with the new setting and see if it hit more fairways too, but it looks promising that I had to loft up and weight back and still saw gains. 

 

For funs, we cranked it to -1.5º weight forward and I was able to hit 1 shot that carried 297 which is as close to 300 carry I have ever had on this AboutGolf 3Trak simulator.

i have a feeling that a lot of the people that played F9 with the weight forward will play the Radspeed with the weight back. Spin reduction is substantial with the Rad line. I found the Rad XB to spin less than the F9 too.

Thats exactly what I've experienced as well. I played the F9 with the weight forward and i find the Radspeed with the weight back is already lower spinning.

Just put in my order for a RadSpeed 9* in Peacoat with the Motore X F1 6 in X-Flex.

 

Will be replacing the F9 I've gamed for the last two years.  I have an Atmos Tour Spec Black 7X in the F9 which I will compare with the Motore X F1 once I have the RadSpeed in-hand.

Just got back from hitting in the sim. The radspeed for me is really low spin. My F9 with the ventus red, weight forward was averaging 2400 spin. The radspeed with ventus red and the weight in the back was averaging 2100 spin. Decided to try the weight forward and I couldn't get the spin above 1800, it was unplayable for me in that weight configuration.

Cobra offered a killer trade in on a sim driver that I had bought used (basically getting my money back) so I ordered a radspeed +1” with d5 swingweight I’m peacock blue with hzrdus rdx blue. I want to experiment with the longer playing length and at worst I can cut it down and order heavier weights from cobra or hot melt

Not sure if anyone has tried the tour length but any insight on it?! Swing weights the same etc? Would it be flatter? Thanks in advance

 

I've been playing the Tour Length for a couple of years. They add a heavier weight to bring the SW back up to standard. It's the same as choking up I guess, but I always felt choking up on the club made it feel too light compared to a properly cut down club with proper swingweight.

Like was said, they bring the swing weights back up on the tour length. I just bought an XB in tour length but haven't been able to swing it yet (I have had cut down drivers in the past though). Honestly, its doesn't feel all that much shorter to me and depending on which model you are going with, I would strongly consider the tour length depending on what you have played in the past (the stock Xb is 46" in length!!)

Awesome appreciate that. I just ordered the xb with hzrdous blue tour length. I prefer drivers shorter becuase I hate the way drivers are getting longer. Gets here Thursday so excited to try it out

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
