    Love the look of it. I never liked the look of the Nike drivers. But this one I would have tried it. Looks super love the rear weight section on the sole. Didn’t none on the OEM company’s left buy the Nike Patten’s? Bet this design would have sold well,if it worked as good as it looked. The colors looked very good. To bad it never got it never got to market.

    meh…they would have sold like all the other Nike equipment…far behind most of the other major OEM’s.

    Love it! Wish it was available. My golfing is over once my Covert 2.0 is scratched on top and RZN golf balls are all gone. I painted a Swoosh on my clubs way back when since small steel drivers. Not starting to paint other companies again. 37 years a Nike fan since little baby boots. Haven’t purchased a single Nike item since no more golf clubs. Still look at stuff but simply refuse to buy anything from them anymore.

    There were more images of other drivers, wedges, irons, putters, and limited edition colorway driver. Images were added right below this post you’re talking about in the Nike thread.

    Why live in the past? Why even discuss what would have been a useless piece of equipment?

Forum Thread of the Day: Cobra’s new King F9 “Speedback” driver?

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day revolves around information on Cobra’s latest releases. News of Cobra’s King CB/MB irons, which were created in tandem with Rickie Fowler, were released a couple of days ago, and in the thread titled “Cobra ’19 News?”, GolfWRX members got a peak at what else Cobra has lined up for its followers.

GolfWRX member cbuescher has revealed some fascinating information on possible future Cobra products, dishing out details on what are apparently Cobra’s new F9 drivers.

“F9 drivers look great.  No more F8+…..just one head with three different loft options.  Found out that the old F7/F8 adapters will fit new heads, but new adapters are labeled differently.  They now say STD, +1, -1, +1.5, etc.  The three different loft options will have the standard lofts as 9.0, 10.5, or 12. Drivers and fairways have a similar look as before but they’ve added two “turbulators” on the back of the crown. The driver will have 2 color options.”

GolfWRX forum members were also privy to information gleaned from cbuescher on Cobra’s new fairway wood and hybrid line:

“Fairway woods look almost identical to F8 with the milled face added this year.  Hybrids are a black matte finish and look much better IMO than last year.  Several of you asked about the KING Forged iron.  Unfortunately this club has gone away…they felt like Forged Tech was a better fit for that gap and the King Forged was not needed anymore.”
