Any plans to make the F8+ with a deep face or what's the reason to not make it a option? Love the driver just wish it were in a deep face.

I agree with this completely.  The bio cell + was my all time favorite head shape.

My question is are there any plans to develop an iron set similar to the t-mb, p-790, and others?

The Volition series of clubs and clothing that you guys have look amazing, and your willingness to support the Folds of Honor is commendable!  Any plans to make a volition edition golf bag?  The blue camo finish on a bag would look great and I would certainly be in the market for one!

The Pro MB's are a thing of beauty. I applaud your commitment to producing players clubs.

This is unlikely, but, do you guys happen to have a sub 460 driver somewhere in development? I realize it would be less forgiving, but man, a 430/440 F8+ would look sick.

I would think the milled design of the driver face would lend itself to more friction on the ball creating more spin. How does this milled design avoid that?

the F6 Baffler is a great club, will you be offering a F8 version, or, do you need to build your own by custom ordering a F8 4-5 fairway wood to Baffler specs?

Why have you trended away from the technology that was in the King LTD?  As someone that's been bagging the LTD since it's release, what makes your most recent driver offerings appealing when the F7 and F8 have felt like steps backwards from the LTD?

First I absolutely love the new blue camo folds of honor F8+ and the cause it supports.
My friend asked about cutting down his F8+ Driver with hzrdus yellow 75 and wanted to order heavier weights similar to the F8 tour length. He was told that by doing this would make the driver non conforming. What causes this? Weight make the head too hot or moi too high?

Are the OL iron shafts specifically designed for the irons or will the heads play just as well with a non stock option. Would you recommend using all 7 iron shafts if going non stock?

As a player that fights a left miss, I hate most modern drivers with there hook bias and closed face at address set ups. Most of your competitor's "solutions" for this is to buy a higher lofted driver and loft down with the shaft sleeve adjuster. What impressed me with your F7+ driver was that it seemed to have a neutral face position regardless of the loft setting. Does the new F8+ have the same neutral look and weighting for those of us that do not need help fighting the majority's slice/right miss? Thanks for your availability and answers.

First off, thanks for doing a Q&A and making great clubs!

I recently purchased the F8. I am really enjoying it. I have definitely gained some good distance over my last driver, but just a very minimal gain on consistency. I noticed that on your website there is the option to purchase a tour length version which comes with a shortened shaft. I purchased through an authorized online retailer and the tour length version was not an option. Is the tour length an option only on cobragolf.com? If so, what was the decision behind that and would they become available on other sites sometime in the future? I really think I would have considered the shorter shaft for slight more consistency had that been an option on the site I purchased the driver from.

The CNC-milled faces in the new cobra drivers was a nice surprise. I have two questions regarding this technology: are the tolerances regarding COR now significantly tighter then your conpetitors? What is the idea of milling the front of the face and not the back of it (tolerances would be the same I guess?)

With Cobra Connect do you see Cobra developing any unique or custom offerings for this system or will you just use the standard Arccos 360 format?

As a high school JV and Varsity golf coach, I hear my players talk about pros all the time. Rickie Fowler always seems to be one of their favorite golfers.

However, very few of my players actually play Cobra clubs, even though your equipment is fantastic. I find this to be a huge disconnect and a missed opportunity to capture younger golfers and build brand loyalty.

What are Cobra’s plans to capitalize on the love young golfers have for your staff in order to bring more junior golfers into your brand?

Perhaps it is where I live, but the Cobra rep in my area is not active with the juniors. I could only imagine hosting a creative junior only fitting day would be a boon for the brand.

Wishing you continued success.

Can you discuss any changes that were made to the chroming process from the F7 single lengths to the F8s?

Several of us have noticed a clear issue in the quality of the F8s in terms of the damage the finish is showing - even though we gamed F7s for the entire season last year and had no such issues.

As much as I am fully commited to the single lengths, the quality this year would definitely make me leary about future upgrades.

I had a Cobra Baffler back in ancient times... that was one insanely easy club to hit for it's time)? How did you improve upon the rails, and lastly will there ever be a an option for changeable rails?

Also, love the look of the raw wedges. Will there ever be a custom option? Bounce, grind etc.

1) If a customer orders a set of F8 One Length irons with custom shafts (that are .355), are you still installing each discrete shaft length in each head (meaning the usual 5 iron shaft is installed into the 5 iron head, etc instead of a 7 iron shaft being installed in all heads)?  If so, why?  I ordered a set of the F7 One Length irons last year and was surprised to see the shafts had different step patterns suggesting that a complete set of shafts were installed versus just a 7 iron shaft in all the heads.


2) Do you envision additional grip models being offered that are equipped with Cobra Connect, specifically corded grips?  I love cord grips and would like to see some equipped with Cobra Connect.
