is looking to take the industry by storm in 2018. With brand ambassador Rickie Fowler
winning the Hero World Challenge a few weeks ago, the company’s new F8
and F8+ drivers
are well on their way to becoming golf’s next big thing. Featuring technology Cobra claims can help every golfer, whatever their ability, to hit it longer and straighter. So are the innovations really as exciting as the brand claims?
PRECISION AND SPEED REDEFINED
Cobra’s latest line starts with their incredible Cobra King F8 and F8+ Drivers. Two clubs that are making waves and already can claim a PGA Tour win. Cobra believes the game of golf is all about advancement, and with their newest creation they truly feel you will hit your drives stronger, longer and straighter than ever before.
TECHNOLOGY, NOT MYTHOLOGY
Featuring golf’s first-ever CNC precision milled forged titanium driver face with E9 technology, Cobra has ensured every driver face is exactly the same and made to the precise specifications to achieve perfect performance. This specially machined face is three percent thinner and ten percent lighter than the previous F7 model to help players achieve maximum ball speed with amazing accuracy. To produce maximum distance Cobra have employed the new 360 Aero Technology. Formed from a series of aero trips on the crown and sole of the clubhead, 360 works to optimise aerodynamic performance to reduce drag and increase clubhead speed for maximum distance. The updated sole also features two moveable weights (weighing 12 grams and 2 grams) to finely adjust CG. While an adjustable hosel provides eight loft settings and three further draw settings.
The incredible advances of the F8 don’t end there. The entire family of clubs also features Cobra Connect, built-in smart technology from Arccos Golf. Using the Cobra Connect/Arccos 360 app on your smartphone allows players to track the distance and accuracy of their drives and also gives them GPS-based distances for over 40,000 golf courses worldwide. Looking for a bit more help? The Cobra Connect also boasts a virtual caddie feature that will help with club selection as well as strategy planning.
The Cobra F8+ features all the tremendous technology listed above in a smaller profile for greater workability. Both models are available in Nardo Grey and Black.
