Forum Thread of the Day: “Cobra King F9 Driver Review”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from QuigleyDU, who on our forums, submitted his detailed review of his experience trying out Cobra’s new F9 driver. We’re approaching the period where plenty of new drivers are soon to hit the market, and in QuigleyDU’s review, he speaks very highly of the new addition from Cobra.

“I was getting very good numbers. I don’t know if all the aerodynamic stuff makes a difference. This has been done a few times, Adams did it, Wilson did it etc. etc. I have not been able to measure improvement due to this. All I can say is that it is not sub-par. I have a launch monitor pic that will be posted. I did not ever get the numbers out of the f8 that I get with this driver. I do not even try adjusting the weights. So I could have even gotten better numbers. I also tried it with the HZRDUS Smoke 65 gram 6.5 shaft. It appears that there are going to be a lot of shafts offered with this driver.”

As well as the performance, QuigleyDU also discusses the look and feel of the club, describing the driver as having “a higher pitch and a bit more of a harsh sound than the muted sound most go for, but that is classic Cobra.”, While he also believes that it’s an excellent choice for those in the market for a new driver, stating that the club is “an upgrade for anyone swinging the f8. You will not be disappointed. Also, a great driver to look at if you are going to be in the market next year.”

    I hit this driver 200 yards farther in the air than any other club I have hit (USGA approved too). Buy 10 and keep them in a vault… sell them for millions!

    I got a chance to test the F9 driver, fairway, and irons last month on a Trackman due to where I work( not sure if I should mention so I won’t) and was very impressed comparing it to all my Epic/Rogue sticks. Yes @smz there is no draw/fade weight option, but as you know face angle changes with loft adjustments. So what they’ve done is offer 3 different heads 9/10.5/12 deg. The 9 is the tour model and naturally fade biased, the 10.5 slightly draw and 12 is the draw head. The loft adjustments allow the different heads to overlap, meaning the 9 set to 10.5 is more fade biased than the 10.5 head, and the 12 set to 10.5 is the most draw biased. So there are options just not with weights. They forgo the weights they had in the F6-F8 to offer super high MOI (speedbacl tech)and to make it the most aerodynamic of any driver. They were very honest in telling us where they were lacking performance in previous models against other brands and addressing those problems. Outside of that I’d put them #3 behind Callaway and Taylormade. The new Titleist and Ping stuff blows in comparison. I was only a couple mph behind my Epic at 170+ ball speed so I try to be honest in selling products to my customers. Definitely a major step foward for a historically second tier major brand.

      But there is the marketing mental trickery if your bulbous driver has fade and draw adjustment weights.. particularly if you slice and have a low clubhead speed. Maybe the F10 will revert to compensating heel-toe weight adjustment.

      “the 12 set to 10.5 is the most draw biased.” – when you de-loft an adjustable wood via an adjustable hosel, you actually open the face, making it less draw biased than at the std. loft. Which Dick’s sporting goods do you work at?

      I wonder how they design all that power and speed into the F9 titanium driver head… since they are all fabricated in China. Maybe they inject some moo goo guy pan magic into the metallurgy.

      Dude this is a very good reply and no bulls+%t I appreciate it. I’ve been trying to find anything, anyone, to compare the F9 to the Callaway, Taylormade, and the TS3 (TS3 which I was thinking about gaming this year) but I really like the look of the F9 and I had the F8 very straight and long. Rick Shiels, and the boys must be on restriction from even mentioning this club because they have not. Thank you for putting this information out there. You help put the stamp of approval on what I’m purchasing.

    WHAT??!!! No weight adjustment for Fade and Draw? How will all the gearheads defeat their banana slices if they can’t shove all the weight to the heel of the F9 toy driver?
