Help with Cobra Fairway Woods

Recommended Posts

I have a Cobra Bio Cell 5w. It's my favorite club in the bag and I hit it farther and more consistently than a 3w from a different manufacturer. I absolutely love that "heavy club face on the end of a light stick" feel, if you know what I mean. Right now I can get a Cobra King F6  3 wood online for less money than a Bio Cell. My problem is there no retailer, golf shop, or outlet in my area that carries Cobra, so I can't try the F6 for myself. Can anyone tell me if the F6 is comparable to the Bio Cell in feel, size, etc. ? Any feedback would be most appreciated.

 

Thanks

From my own opinion I would look more at the f7. The f6 models were good, however the f7 are incredible.

The bio cell were incredible clubs and I know a few ppl who thought they out performed the f6.

Not sure if any of the most wanted included the f6 but could be worth looking into as well.

I agree, if you can stretch to it go for the F7

I'll cast another vote in the "try the F7". I have the 3/4 F7 fairway wood and it's my favorite club in my bag. I share your affinity for heavy club on a light shaft feel and it checks that box for me.

 

I didn't get to try the Bio Cell woods so I can't offer a direct comparison, but before buying I tested both the F6 and F7. Between the two I tried, the F7 simply performed better for me.

 

What region do you live in? 

 

EDIT: If you know you like the Bio Cell, would ebay/used be an option? Seems like there are some well priced used options.

If you can get the Bio cell that works for you. If not my recommendation is the F7.

I can't speak on the other options but like others the Cobra F7 gets my vote. It is a fantastic golf club that is extremely versatile. It performs well from tight lies to thick rough. It is also powerful enough to rival most Drivers off the tee.

 

FYI- I replaced the standard shaft with a cobra driver shaft. What a difference a couple of inches make (get your mind out of the gutter).

That sounds like it'd be fun to try. Are the shaft connectors different or is it as easy as the one screw and popping it on a standard Cobra driver shaft?

The shaft connectors are identical with one exception. The loft numbers are different so you have to dial it in to what works best for you. For example my F7 3 wood in the connector window display shows 10.5. It is safe to say the actually loft presented to the ball is much higher than 10.5. My best guess would be around 15 degrees which is your average 3 wood. The added length gives me a better lag whip. If I want more control over distance I simply choke down on the club.

Thanks for the info! I plan to give it a try this weekend.

My vote is also for the F7! I think it's one of the best 3 woods out there and I actually like it better than the new F8. The only reason I don't have it in my bag is because I rarely use a 3 wood now that I have the new Cobra Utility 2/3 iron.

 

The dual rail system makes hitting the ball so much easier than any other wood out there. It seemingly just glides across the turf without digging.

 

I never tried the bio cells but I would definitely recommend the F7!

 

Good luck!

I love the F7's. I have the 3/4 at 14.5*, the 5/6 at 17* and the hybrid at 20*. I have full confidence in hitting them. I have hit more greens from 200+ out with them in the last year then all other years and all other clubs combined

Thanks for all the advice. I purchased an F7 over the winter and am more than pleased. Swing weight feels a little different than the Bio Cell, but its close. Bottom line is I needed something to fill the 50 yrd gap between driver and 5w - problem solved.

You could look into purchasing a weight kit to get the swing weight closer, or there's always lead tape...

      Hi all,
      Mixed bag of goodies coming at you from Canada!
      Driver:  Cobra Biocell (set at 12º)
      Cobra Baffler Hybrid - 18º
      Mizuno MP-18SC irons (3-PW)
      Cobra Tour Trusty Wedges (52º and 58º)
      Odyssey White Hot Pro CS7 putter
      TaylorMade TP5x ball
      Still got room for one more club - demoing 3/4 woods at the moment, but I also tend to switch my wedge configuration to a 50/54/58 from my current 52/58 ... depends on the course.
       
      Cheers to a new season! 😄

      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.
