Well i got it and I'm more excited about it, it just screams classy and modern, I'm pleasantly surprised if the graphics on top, where i live i never get to see one in the stores so being im a cobra driver fan i bought it right away, , it's got some big shoes to fill because that f7 guitar head did a very good job for my swing

Another thing i liked allot is the blue graphics very phantom looking in the mostly matte black shaft, i have not played in a few weeks due to weather so maybe i can this weekend try it out, either way it will never be able to get tested until warmer weather comes �
If anyone wants closer pics etc lmk i don't mind �Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Got my 3w today in all black. Man it looks so good!!

Not enough data to say if it's longer or better than my XR16 but odds are that it's not really much longer, but I like how it looks 10x better and it feels SOLID. That's the biggest difference for me and honestly I think that's worth it.

My F8+ arrived yesterday afternoon as well. NV Blue shaft. Was able to hit the range a couple hours ago before it started raining. This thing is SWEET. Honeymoon or even pre-honeymoon I guess but I'm really pleased with it. It's more similar to the King LTD than the F7+ in feel and sound. But it has the more lively, "hot" feel of the F7 too, so it's muffled like the LTD but not quite as  much. Feel and sound are very subjective.

Performance was very impressive. I landed on 9.5 with 12g weight in back and 2g in front. Interestingly, feel and performance for me in draw setting were entirely different. Didn't work. But as I've played LTD and F7 in non-draw setting that isn't an issue. Great stick, sets up perfectly to me (see pic). Just wish I was on a course and not my phone right now!).

Very cool. Glad to see these in the wild.

I don't know why the snake alignment bothers me over the Cobra on the F7. Wish they would have stuck with the COBRA, but you can't please everyone.

To your point about not being able to please everyone, I have the exact opposite opinion. The cobra emblem coming back as the alignment aid sealed my purchase. I canít stand that cobra letterblock aid

Anybody who has the F8 3w... how's your spins? Mine seemed pretty high. Granted, off the deck so hitting it a little low on the face, they seemed pretty high.

Ziggy,
I'm looking at getting an F8 fairway. What shaft did you go with in yours and what are your thoughts on the combo?

Thanks in advance.

2kXV Blue 70 S.

It's still too early to say much but so far the feel is very good. Solid, hot feeling. I just noticed the spin was pretty high, but I was hitting off the deck.

The shaft is pretty good feeling, maybe is a touch more stiff in the butt section than the Tensei. Ball speeds for me were pretty good, right around 138-140 which is on par with most 3w's out there. I maaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy look to get a Epic sub zero or an LTD to compare against just to see if it's the head, shaft or (probably) just me. But again I stress... I only took about 6 swings, off the deck. Not enough data points to say if the F8 is a mega high spinner or what.

Seems like all the anticipation is for the driver /fwy.  Has anyone else tried the f8 irons yet?  My son was fit for them and hoping he gets them before the official release in Feb.

Not yet, but it didnít stop me from plonking some dosh for the custom F8 one length, with the kbs tour v. Best thing was the inclusion of the Arcos as standard, no charge. Nearly got the F7 cause they are a steal at the moment but Discount Dans suggested F8. I tried the F7, I liked what I felt & hit and I anticipate getting better with the forged face F8

The stock Aldila shaft is the 'real deal' so to speak, and my dispersion was pretty good. I'm not the best off the deck but after just 2 swings or so I was grooving it.

For ME personally, I like the see my 3w spins closer to 3500. <3k is too low and has 0% chance of ever holding a green, but over 4k will cause my flight to balloon. A hint of balloon is maybe ok hitting into a par 5, but off the tee I'd like some run out.

Either war, the club looks sexy as hell, and feels great. best sounding/feeling fwy I've ever hit.

I will optimize the shaft to get the dispersion right
hope this one is it
The stock Aldila shaft is the 'real deal' so to speak, and my dispersion was pretty good. I'm not the best off the deck but after just 2 swings or so I was grooving it.

For ME personally, I like the see my 3w spins closer to 3500. <3k is too low and has 0% chance of ever holding a green, but over 4k will cause my flight to balloon. A hint of balloon is maybe ok hitting into a par 5, but off the tee I'd like some run out.

Either war, the club looks sexy as hell, and feels great. best sounding/feeling fwy I've ever hit.

Got tracking, but I ordered mine thru Dick's.

Anybody who has the F8 3w... how's your spins? Mine seemed pretty high. Granted, off the deck so hitting it a little low on the face, they seemed pretty high.
Sounds Perfect for me

My F8+ came last night. Threw in my shaft (Kuro Kage DC XT) and went to the range this morning. I don't know... maybe I just have my F7+ just dialed in perfectly. Sound is better in F8.  Like the mat black of the F7 better than nardo ( thought I would like it). F7 head seems a little more round and deeper at set up which is the look I prefer. I have the double weights in my F7 and the feel is amazing, would like to get the extra weights for the F8 but I haven't seen them up on cobra website yet. Jury is still out...

Seems like all the anticipation is for the driver /fwy.  Has anyone else tried the f8 irons yet?  My son was fit for them and hoping he gets them before the official release in Feb.

Not yet, but it didn't stop me from plonking some dosh for the custom F8 one length, with the kbs tour v. Best thing was the inclusion of the Arcos as standard, no charge. Nearly got the F7 cause they are a steal at the moment but Discount Dans suggested F8. I tried the F7, I liked what I felt & hit and I anticipate getting better with the forged face F8

Can't wait, suppose to ship 2/2

My son hit the F7 and F8 back to back and had better ball speeds and dispersion with the the F8.  He's going with a new KBS TGI 50 shaft, which I've never even heard of before.

Switched from my 2016 M2 to the F8 purely off looks and hitting it with trackman at a local shop. I've never played Cobra, but this club has already flipped me over from a TM fanboy. Looks fantastic and has a great feel off the face (leave a great ball imprint that wipes off easily). I got it on the 8th so I've played a few rounds with it and I don't think I've missed a fairway. 10/10Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
