WRX Spotlight: Cobra King F9 Speedback driver

Published

Product: Cobra King F9 Speedback driver

Pitch: Every driver company boasts a couple of technological advances with its new driver launches; maybe a new crown to save weight, a different sole design, a way to shift CG to dial in trajectory, higher MOI, or a different face technology. This year, Cobra threw the kitchen sink at its new King F9 Speedback drivers, checking off all of those boxes.

Our take

A fast, aerodynamic clubhead with an extremely low CG, and perhaps the hottest overall package in the 2019 driver market.

As the company states

“The addition of a low, Speedback weight structure maintains a low, deep CG that has never before been combined with efficient aerodynamics. Without it, the raised aerodynamic features (skirt, tail/aft & crown) would raise the CG, negatively impacting spin and launch.”

Cobra and its engineering team claim that the F9 is the first driver ever to offer a raised skirt, raised tail/aft, a raised and rounded crown, and a rounded frontal perimeter that reduces drag for maximum club speed.

Director of Original Content Johnny Wunder on the F9

“It feels and sounds like no other. The numbers were solid across the face, and it looks amazing at address. It was the only driver I tried this season that got me to 111/168/2300. Truth be told, there are a ton of good drivers out there, but if I had to go out and play a round or tourney, the Cobra F9 is in the bag.”

“I cant argue with the numbers and how it performs in real life. They just nailed it this year. If I was going to nitpick at all, it would be for not making an all-black head.”

    I tried the F9 Driver yesterday at our local Travel and Golf Show in Toronto and I was very impressed. The sound and solid feel was excellent. Placing the head behind the ball looks VERY square to the target line. I tried both the “bumble-bee” and satin-black and they both look great. Depending on your choice (9.0, 10.5) of loft, you get a different head. I’m not sure if any other manufacturer offers that option. Interesting. If you were to order directly from Cobra today, the “standard” shafts are all back-ordered. However, great driver and I’m looking forward to demo-testing it out at a local club.

    I hit this in the PGA store, I don’t have much faith in their numbers but, it felt great. There may be a fitting in my near future.

    This one is “Driver of the Year”.

    It has kicked my trusty G400 out of the bag and given me ball speeds I haven’t seen for years.
