I wonder how much influence Fowler had on the design and/or color scheme?  As the F series rolls on, Cobra looks to be incrementally reducing the amount of titanium and increasing the amount of composite matrix used.  The engineering and manufacturing prowess that goes into modern golf equipment is pretty fascinating.

I absolutely love the black/yellow combo! So much so that I am starting to unload some extras to help soften the $500 blow to the wallet.

I’ll stick with my Cobra F8 in Black and Nardo Grey.....but the new F9 looks sexy.

Very eager to see how this performs in testing. 

 

I've been planning for a club fitting before next season and am hoping this makes the short list to try when I go.

Advance notice to the Mod's - please select me as a tester for the Yellow bomber  😁

I have a feeling that if/when that test hits (whether part of Cobra Connect Challenge 3, or not), the response will be huge. I think the F9 is beautiful and would love to give it a test!

I'm pretty intrigued to try this driver every club ever. 

Fixed that for you 😄

On a more serious note, I wish Cobra had demo days here. Seems like if there is a rep in Hawaii, they're never at the multi-vendor demo days that I've gone to the last two summers, and I never see them advertised doing their own.

LOL...Guess I opened myself up to that one.   But hey I've been pretty good of late.   Only one club purchase since June that is the Odyssey Red Ball putter, the Bridgestone's as you know were a forum review.   

But 2019 is within eye sight 😁

That's cause you bought everything in May, right?

Technically February through May, but who's keeping track.

But back to this driver, so was anyone more swayed after seeing Bryce and Rickie's performance this weekend, or didn't have any affect anyway.

I know "we" as avid forum readers aren't usually swayed too much by tour use.  But I can tell you the average Joe consumer who really only gets his or her exposure to equipment from TV and the major magazines, definitely is based on the comments we here in the pro shop.

Not in the least. I don't have Bryson's or Rickie's swing so....

But of course, you knew that already.

To me, it will be more important to see how it does in the hands of "regular Joe's" when the most wanted testing rolls around.

Like @MaxEntropy said, I don't really care what pros are playing, otherwise I'd have an identical bag to Tiger's because I'm a fanboi. I've been intrigued by Cobra's drivers since the Cobra Connect challenges the past two years, and @chisag 's writeup of them a while back, but never got a chance to try them out.

It doesn't really matter to me what BD or Rickie play. They could make a Walmart driver look like a magic wand. That being said, I sure love the look, and I'll be hitting them, along with the rest of the 2019 drivers in the spring.

 I could see the average consumer being swayed by them. I really think that Cobra has the 2 of the best players under contract for marketing so I think they will continue to grow their market segment.

      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.
