Cobra F9 vs TM Sim 3W


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I am finally ditching my 10 year old 3W and would welcome suggestions. I've heard good things about the Cobra F9 and the SIM. Hands-on pros and cons of each would be great. If there is a different 3W you would recommend, I am all ears. I was a huge fan of the V-Steel back in the day which lead me to the SIM. I play to a 12 with 110MPH  driver head speed.

Can't really give you much in terms of comparisons between the F9 and SIM 3W...

But I did just recently upgrade from Cobra F7 to Cobra F9 and increased from an average drive of 252 yards to 278.  I track everything via Arccos, so the numbers are accurate.

The major differences from one club to another for me were the following:

  • Changed to Stiffer Shaft
  • Changed to the same Golf Pride grip I user for my Irons
  • Started using a stronger grip when hitting Driver

I enjoy the F9 and couldn't recommend it more, but I spent a year hitting an ill-fitting driver and being frustrated by it.  I say your best bet is to hit both under the guidance of a clubfitter to see the numbers you get.

Bought and played the F9 as well as some sim time prior to purchase. Came with Hzrdus green, 55 stiff which is what I was hitting in the sim. Distance wise, that day, it exceeded all others including TS2, 3 and 4 (different shafts), SIM and Mavrick.

Got it on the course, however, and didnt live it. No consistency. Played several rounds with it, switching shafts each time with similar semi poor results. I ebayed it with 4 rounds on it and the original shaft.

Ultimately, it couldn't really compete with my Ping G400 nor my Epic Flash.

... I have not hit the Sim but absolutely love the F9. Fairway woods was traditionally the weakest part of my game but the F8 with rails changed that. Easy to elevate from there fairway without ballooning and surprisingly long off the tee. My F9 with the Fujikura TS Blue is as good as it gets for my swing. But with the 45% Cobra discount, I ordered the Speedzone in the Matte Black/White finish with the same TS Blue 7 shaft and am really looking forward to seeing how it compares to my F9. I just don't see myself ever playing another fairway wood without rails and would highly recommend a demo for anyone that struggles from the fairway.

Impressive discount. Do you work for Cobra?

Nice, glad you got in on that. That code was deactivated pretty quickly. Too many WRXers hit that code.

There was a Cobra 45% Code from early March until Labor Day.   In that time I know of 6 different ones that were active and then deactivated.  As it got closer to Labor Day the codes got passed around more and more quickly and they were deactivated more and more quickly.  It started with RickeF2020 to BrysonD2020, then they started really getting in the weeds with them.

I purchased two MIM wedges, 2 pairs of shoes, grips, 3 speedzone irons and a Driver for my dad.

I have friends that purchased multiple drivers, wedges, iron sets, fairway woods,, it was ridiculous.
