This was just posted on MGS site. Have seen other leaks and such, but nice to see some official photos up. Personally it looks busy on the bottom which is very Cobra, but I am sure if the past drivers have anything to say it will be a very competitive driver the rest of new comers to the market. 
What is everyone else thinking? Will this make the must test list for them? I would certainly be hard pressed to not try this one out, even if I didn't get along amazingly well with last years.

I think it looks great! I’m interested to get to learn more about the technology they’ve added that will make this a better performer than Speedzone. It seems infinity face is here to stay. Cobra drivers always seem to be amongst the most forgiving too, so I’m excited to give this one a shot when it finally comes out. Which is...when?

I was hoping to see it in use by the tour players, but Rickie was still using the F9 at Mayakoba.. He really does love that thing.

Importance of getting fit, right? The reaction to TSi3 has been crazy. It is clear they have a special product. I’m going to be impressed if anything from 2021 comes close to TSi3.

Amen! Amazing how just by watching videos on YouTube, and seeing how one driver works for one, but not another, doesn’t convince folks of the need for fitting!

That is honestly one of the best shaft lineups I have seen. Not to many choices but for $449.99 def a reason to look cobras way vs the other big OEM's

RADliculous... it doesnt look as bad as I thought it would.  Building on what works instead of reinventing. 

The second color option is much more appealing in my opinion.
