Haven’t seen much on these, I know they are still technically pre-release but I’ve seen them on eBay,etc already but haven’t seen much in regards to  performance.

How does the F9/F9 Tour compare to the F7 and F8/F8+?

I game an F7 and really enjoy it, had an F8 and performance was very similar to F7 plus I like the slightly louder F7 sound (but more metallic, F8 was a bit more muted).

F9 Tour Fairway is the real deal, at least for me.  Tested the 3/4 FW a few weeks ago with HZRDUS Smoke 70g 6.5 and was getting 3-4 extra mph ball speed over my normal 3W (CBX 13.5), with more forgiveness and slightly better feel.  Felt as though I couldn't mis-hit it, it was that good.  Will probably give it another look once it's in stores, and if it's still as good it will probably go into my bag.

As for comparisons...I tried the F8+ FW last year, and while it felt good something (or maybe a few things, I don't know for sure) was just missing.  Was not getting ball speed anywhere near what I was seeing with the F9 Tour, and didn't feel like it could really even compete with my CBX.  The F9 Tour absolutely can compete.

Do yourself a favor and give it a try - definitely worth your time.  I think you'll be most impressed.

One other point...I only hit the Tour version of the F9, and only hit the F8+ version.  I generally like smaller FW heads and did not demo the other models.

Thanks for the input. I was leaning F9 but I love my F6 Baffler 4/5 at 41.5”. Really considering the F9 Tour and playing it at 42”. I normally play 42.5” in a three wood.
