Don’t forget the all black with pink accents for the ladies.

Of course we will. Everything that is old, is new again. Heck, we are back to seeing screws on the face. My guess is, the square will flop as bad as it did the first time.

I just tell myself their Steelers/Penguins/Pirates fans with the color scheme haha.

I've tried to like Cobra drivers but for some reason just haven't been able to figure it out. I've tried the Bio Cell, Bio Cell +, Fly-Z, and F8+ and for whatever reason they just never worked for me. Still won't stop me from trying this one at some point...but it'll be hard pressed to kick my G400 out of the bag.

... Keep in mind the yellow is not visible at address. It is there for the TV camera from behind or in the follow through and perhaps a good player on the course to catch someone's eye. Pretty smart really as it will stand out like no other driver on the market yet look like any of the previous Cobra drivers at address with a black carbon crown. I just love the shape of their driver heads. I hope to have one in early January to play in Phoenix and get a review in here before the PGA Show.

Why the hate on the Steelers yellow? I’m sensing either a Ravens, Browns or Pats fan? [emoji16]

I was able to hit this driver yesterday.  Shaft was a Atmos Black 7X.  Not my ideal weight for a shaft, prefer the 6X.  I was also hitting a Titliest TS3 with the 6X Evenflow and The Ping G400 LST with their tour shaft.  This driver outperformed the other 2 and it really wasn't all that close.   First shot was one of those awful low heel strikes.  Flew 264 with 2900 spin and roll out to 281.  I was impressed with the spin.  Typically for me a low strike like that sends the spin way up.  I got in a nice groove after that and the spin numbers were really consistent.  2100-2300 and the dispersion was fantastic.  This will definitely be on my short list to potentially buy.  Loved the sound, the look from top was phenomenal.  You don't see any of the accent color, so I wouldn't be concerned with the bottom of the club.  The top looks great.  Really good club.

So how much more distance were you getting with it over the TS3 and the LST?

That's a pretty big increase. Enjoy that F9. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
