Cobra King F6+ driver

Recommended Posts

We know that TaylorMade's front/back weight is 10g. Cobra's FLY-Z+ was 15g. It certainly *appears* that Cobra's design allows for weight to be moved over a larger area. If we assume (no guarantees of course) that Cobra hasn't reduced the mass of their weight, then based on more mass being moved over a greater area, Cobra's system would impact a greater change in front to back CG location (and by extension would have a greater impact on launch and spin).

 

TaylorMade chose to compromise a bit of front/back movement (as well as some of the mass that could have gone into the front/back weight) in order to keep the left/right adjustability of the front weight track. 

 

I have a bit of the mass properties info from TaylorMade. It's really impressive how far they've come from R15.

 

It's very impressive what TM did to remove the weight from the crown of the club.  I wonder if Cobra has improved on their cell technology, or if they are going in another direction for their crowns.

SO MUCH MATH....   ;)

So will Cobra's offering move the CG farther back and lower for higher launch or are they shooting for a greater combo of launch/forgiveness/spin mitigation with via the club head?

 

Generally speaking I don't do as well with lower farther back CGs because I tend to launch high anyway.  It's why I've had no luck with Cobra as much as I've wanted to bag one of their drivers (I've never gone for a Cobra fitting where I could play with shafts to try and reduce spin though)

Maybe I've seen this driver...maybe I haven't, doesn't matter. I believe that a substantial portion of what actually matters about this driver can be inferred from that single photograph.

 

With our continuous education efforts focused on mass properties, I'd like to think we've made you among the most educated readers/consumers in golf. I also like to think I'm a pretty smart guy, and so naturally I'd like you to prove me right.

 

Here's my Challenge to you:

Look at what you see. Think about what you know about the mass properties of currently available drivers. Think about what you've learned about Cobra's roadmap, and most specifically its philosophy around mass properties. Consider other new products coming to market.

Consider all of that and now you tell me...

 

What are the likely mass properties of the F6+? What are the performance characteristics that result? What are the limiting factors of the design, and perhaps most importantly, based on all of that, how do you think it will compare to FLY-Z+? How will it compare to other offerings in the market?

 

Go....

I'm going off memory here because the picture is gone. It looked to me like it would be a solution that can be fit to a wider range of swing types. The same driver head could be configured similar to a G30 or an SLDR or anywhere in between. The interesting part is the CG will come up some with the weight back as opposed to forward. So while you would increase moi, it would also lower the launch and increase the spin. That's just a guess based on what I remember from the picture though.

I'm interested to see how this one plays out. They're using a heavier weight and it seems like they're maxing it out in terms of movement from front to back. With it back I'm thinking of my G25 and with it forward the SLDR comes to mind.

 

My concern is how loft will come into play. Let's say, for example, that I play a 9.5° G25 since the CG is back but with the low, forward CG of the SLDR I might be better off in 11.25°. With this driver, I may be needing to dramatically adjust the loft to play it in each of the extreme settings. Maybe Cobra has a developed something to deal with this. If not, then maybe the can of "loft adjustability" worms gets opened.

I launch the ball high as well but I was pleasantly surprised at my ball flight with the regular FlyZ with it being rear weighted.  I got better results with it than the FZ+ weighted forward. 

 

Judging by the specs from the MGS Most Wanted, Cobra is all about the low spin and I fully expect these new drivers to continue on that trend.

I know a pro who has hit this and said it is beyond incredible.  They were sworn to secrecy about everything to do with this driver.  He said he hit this and the KING and this one by far outperformed the KING.

Recently got one of these, the blue one in fact! Absolutely love it! Never have I been able to hit a draw consistently in my life! Now I am on every drive with this we took in my bag?

Hi all,

Saw this come up on Instagram and wondered if anyone had any details on it... other than the obvious carbon weight-shift/trail/thingee...

 

 

That's a great looking driver!

I bought the F6+ last year and it made a big difference in my drives. Straighter, longer carry and roll out and I am able to shape drives easier than with my last driver.

That's one nice looking club! Wonder what shaft comes with it and the MSRP is on it.

      Hello all. I've been helping my wife get fit for a driver this year, it has been an interesting experience. But one that I think could benefit many others as well. Her driver swing speed is normally about 70mph, trying to find a driver that has enough loft for her to get better numbers than just hitting a 3 wood has been hard. 
       
      But today we found an incredible winner, and massive value. A driver that many of you have probably read up on or watched Rick Shiels gush over. The Cobra F9. 
      Why was this club so amazing for her? Well, a couple reasons. First, she is 5'1", and with her swing speed, loft and backspin are huge helps. Cobra offers the F9 with a head that goes up to 14* of loft, that was 2 more degrees than her previous game. That got her launch angle up and increased her spin for 30 more yards of carry. The second reason and why this club is a massive value. The Cobra Jr program. 
      We got her the Jr's version of the F9. Same exact head(only available in the 12.5 loft head), but comes with a junior length and flex shaft. Which as it turns out, is basically prefect for her height and swing speed. The real icing on the cake is that for the next 2 years, if she ever wants a new shaft cobra will give a free 1 time upgrade to any shaft in their stock lineup. Their thinking is a junior golfer will increase club speed over two years and will need a new shaft, so they include one. So if she does want a new shaft of full length, she gets one for free. 
      To top it all off... It is $100 less than their current list price of the regular F9. $349.00, all day every day. 
      So if you are looking for a driver that has a loft setting up to 14, don't buy the regular F9, buy the Jr version and use your free shaft upgrade. 
      This is amazing in my book. That is basically $200 less than most of the other offerings out there.

      Alright, so after playing for 25ish years, I finally got fit for clubs. I’m 32 years old. I don’t have the shaft information on me at the moment, but I hope you find it interesting nonetheless. 
      Driver: Wilson C300 Stiff Flex 9 degrees, but I’ve got it adjusted to 10
      Fairway Wood: Cobra F8 Regular Flex 5-6 wood. It’s set to 18.5 degrees
      Irons: Wilson Staff D7 Regular Flex 5-GW
      Wedges: Cleveland CBX 52, 56, 60
      Putter: Tommy Armour Impact No.3
      Ball: Cut Grey
      So I consider myself a middle handicapper. I can easily shoot low to mid 80’s. However, I recently was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my back. So in order to extend my playing time I’ve taken quite a bit off my swing. Because I’m still adjusting to a new swing, I wanted clubs much more forgiving but I wouldn’t lose too much distance. The brand new D7 irons have offered me the best combination of long distance and good accuracy. I know their lofts are jacked but since I slowed my swing, I technically haven’t lost any distance off the iron number. I have the same philosophy with the wedges. My fitter handed me the CBX wedges and I was blown away by how consistently I was hitting them the same distances. As little as I’m getting to play, once a month, I’m not looking to shape too many shots, I just want to go straight. I’m always kinda an underdog guy so you’ll pretty much never find anything Taylormade/Callaway/Ping/Titleist in my bag. I can’t stand the elitist attitude in golf that knocks statistically proven great clubs because they’re not made by a big 4 OEM. My favorite club in the bag is the Tommy Armour putter. I hit hundreds of puts that day and it even blew away the Evnroll for me. I’m not a tall guy either, barely 5’7”, so everything is shaved down 1/4 of an inch to 1/2 an inch. You’ll notice I only have 13 clubs. I’m very satisfied with my 5 wood and 5 iron as my long clubs so I’m considering adding a PM Grind 64 degree wedge for lobs once the new model comes out in February (I know it’s made by Callaway lol). Let me know what y’all think!

      There are some good articles and forums showing off Puma's new Ignite NXT line, like this one:
      But not much in the way of reviews yet. Has anyone tried the Solelace on course or at the driving range? How would you rate it (bonus points if you have used a disc model before and can compare)?
      I have a new pair of the Disc sitting in my office right now because that's (somewhat) proven technology, but I like the look of the Solelace better, so I keep looking down at them debating an exchange (but I'm skeptical... seems like it could be gimmicky). We have about 3 months until golf season starts in Wisconsin, so I'm hoping someone in a warmer climate has actually tried them out and can give some insight to help me with the decision. Thanks!
