F8+ First thoughts

Recommended Posts

Really is a sweet looking head. My Fly-Z will be hard to replace but I am going to give the F8 a chance.

I'm jealous. I'm thinking about picking up the F8 fairway sometime this season.

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.

2. Its no different than a milled wedge

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 too like the F8. If I were buying one I'd have to go with an all black head. Two-tones don't do it for me.

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.
