Cobra 2020 Ultralight Golf Stand Bag Review – Is It Worth The Money

 

Choosing a solid golf bag can have a big impact on your performance. Everybody wants to buy the newest irons and drivers but if your bag is causing you discomfort or irritation, it will certainly add shots to your round.

Cobra Golf is a name that seems to be everywhere this year, and thankfully it is becoming a name synonymous with quality.

With Bryson Dechambeau using the One Length Irons and their Drivers garnering lavish praise in the golf community, you can be forgiven for considering a purchase of one of their golf bags too.

Despite some slight concerns, the Cobra 2020 is a fine stand bag. It has ample storage with 8 pockets and it’s light at 4.5 lbs, But what really sets it apart is the ease of use and comfort with it’s Easy Release Shoulder Pads made from Coolflow Foam and the Easy Flex Base which increases the stability of the bag when standing, no matter the lie or angle on even the steepest of hills.

First Impressions Of This One

When making the switch over from a Cart bag to a Stand bag, there are two main considerations:

Will it be light enough

&

Will it have enough storage for my stuff.

The Cobra Ultralight impressed in both departments but you would expect that when paying for a premium bag.

The bag has a striking design, incorporating the Cobra and it comes in 6 different colours.

The first job was picking the nicest colour and it was a toss up between the Dark Grey and the Baby Blue.

The white one was ruled out because it would get dirty too quickly, despite looking great and we were not the biggest fans of the orange design. The Yellow, Black and Red patented Cobra design is nice but it stands out a bit too much for our liking!

When the bag arrived we were very impressed with the design, it is flashy enough to look great and low key enough not to stand out too much.

Time to load it up and take it on the course!

 

Performance

Bringing it out on the course for the first time, the quality was immediately apparent and the you can’t help to notice how light the bag is.

There was plenty of space for drinks & snacks, a spare rain jacket, GPS device and an umbrella along with all the regular balls, tees and riff raff that go along with a round of golf.

Heading off up the first fairway and there was a slight creaking noise between the bag and the straps but probably because the bag is still so new.

Another crucial aspect of a stand bag is the speed and friction with putting in on and off. The should pads are made from coolflow foam and you can put the bag on and off quickly and without friction.

My first stand bag use to burn my shoulders but this one is a lot better quality and the comfort is excellent.

The 2020 version of the bag used to fall over a lot but they have addressed that probably with a flexible base that allows to bag to stand steadily on any lie or slope.

The grab handle at the top of the back is also perfect for lifting it up and moving it small distances without having to fumble around.

 

 

Storage

The 8 Pockets on The Cobra 2020 Ultralight provide all the space you need and include:

  • Oversize Pocket For Rain Jackets And Apparel

  • A Valuables Pocket That Is Waterproof And Fleece Lined

  • A Large Cooler Pocket For Beverages – Can Fit A Large Bottle Or 2 Cans & Snacks

  • A Large Ball Pocket And A Pocket For Tees, Green Markers Etc.
