F8+ First thoughts

Recommended Posts

Thought you were a ping man now?

Trust me, I want that G400 fairway. But I also want a matching driver/fairway wood. If I wouldn't have bought the F7+ last year, I'd be all over the Ping combo mombo.

I used to be a huge ping guy, I currently play ping i200s. When I looked into the g400 it didn't really exceed any of my expectations. However, I hit the g400 3W with the silver tour shaft well.

Thanks for posting! Make sure to let us know how it goes on the course.

 

This is on the top of my list for drivers to get a shot at my G400!

Nice upgrade from the burner.

Give the cobra a chance and it'll plant roots in your bag.

Love my F7+

I am with you here. I have the G400 driver and I am trying to decide between the G400 and F8 3 wood.

 

ZarFot glad to hear you like it. I had one on pre-order but after hitting it I cancelled my order. Purely based off feel. The G400 just felt so good to me.

I like Cobra drivers... have an F7+... but

 

1. Never have been able to get along with 2 tone colored drivers personally... not sure why.

 

2. The whole milled face thing seems gimmicky.  The driver is on the face for only a fraction of a second...

 

When the clubface collides with the ball it's total contact time is approximately just under 1/2 Millisecond = 400 Microseconds =  0.0004 Seconds = 400/1,000,000 = 4/10.000 Second and the peak force applied to the ball can be as high as 4000 pounds.

I think if I were to get one I'd send it in to have the crown coated with Matte Black. Milled face, not sure if it was the face, but it was 5-7 yards longer than the F7+ for me.

wait a minute... you're saying that a driver which you swing at 100mph or more is not different than a wedge that you swing anywhere from 3mph to 60 or 70 ??

that doesn't make sense...

I believe the original idea behind the milled face was for a uniform flatness.

 

Driver faces have been “polished” for as long as I can remember.

 

Anything to get things more consistent should be a plus for us golfers.

 

Sounds better than “twist face”... who comes up with these things?

It's basically suppose to do the same thing as the the twist face. The F8 has a flat face not the bulge and roll of others.

From Cobra “The fully machined driver face utilises a multi-directional CNC milling pattern for more precision compared to hand polished drivers.

 

This allows for a 3% thinner and 10% lighter face, with improved bulge and roll curvatures for more ball speed and distance.”

 

So still has bulge and roll.

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
