1. The driver does come in all Black

 

2. Its no different than a milled wedge

 

 

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.

I'll be playing Sierra Lakes in Riverside, CA today for the first time. It will be interesting to see how it handles my game ball vs the cheap range ones. I believe some of the holes are pretty tight so driving accuracy will be key.

I had planned on hitting the F8 yesterday but school was closed so my kids were with me. Roads were a sheet of ice, so we stayed home. Trying to find time to go hit the 3W

Just finished my round and it went fairly well for the conditions... 30mph + winds coming off the mountains which made play and putting difficult. It was a challenge, but it was a great day all in all. F8+ had a few nice drives 350 + yards because of the wind haha. I dialed down to 9.5 again and swapped the 2g and 12g to position more weight near the back of the club. This led to the perfect ball flight for the windy conditions when struck properly... Looking forward to play hopefully tomorrow away from the mountains. It's hard to judge performance when you have to purposely draw or fade into the wind. Or aim 40 yards L/ R to account for it

Just remember, the 400+ yard drives that DJ and others are credited with in their driving averages are DOWNHILL, and often, downwind! Those 350 drives COUNT!!!

    I won't argue up or down about Warrior products. I have just found them sometimes difficult to deal with. Just a personal observation from a couple of dealings, not a knock, just an observation.
