I use Cobra F6+ Pro, and BioCell Pro drivers as well as TaylorMade SLDR/R15. Also I own GC2 for my personal use as well. What bugs me with my Cobra drivers and your tests also show (as you are a good ball striker and hit above centre consistently) the smash factor are well below 1.5 or not even close to. I have seen it with all my Cobra drivers too. TaylorMade, even my SLDR/R15 has better smash factor than all my Cobra drivers. I am 2 HCap and swing speed above 110mph and to get max performance from Cobra drivers I set with weight fwd, and ‘try’ hit a high draw but the shot end up straight, high launch and low spin. I play with Cobra because it’s hard to snap hook and keep the ball in play with good distance but again seem like this F9 is same with just 1-2mph extra club head speed gain. Not sure Cobra quality control is as good as Taylor Made and many test you see on YouTube testing with good low handicapped players not getting close to 1.5 smash factor. Could be that new balls needs to be hit harder for better compression (better smash factor/COR) at pro club head speed but then again, as I recall, COR of drivers are tested around 110mph anyway!? Something Cobra needs to address I believe with better design.

Aart van der Molen says:

Do you get a set of spare weights (4 -6–8-10 grams) with the driver so you can tweak the ball flight and spin yourself ? Idea for Cobra to help better golfers ?

Anthony DeLuca says:

Bought it and love it, the feel the sound fantastic…way faster ball speed from the m6 m5 and epic flash, awesome…

Sodthong says:

Longer and faster every year…yeah right.

macon lennox says:

I thought the F9 has a draw biased setting on the hosel adjustment?

Rick Gajewski says:

Great review thanks.

ts3 t32 reco.mened retail 499 heavly discounted everywhere now

Phillios R says:

Is the increase club head speed down to using a lighter shaft?

Simon White says:

Just like Bandit Baker, I’ve not had a driver I like anywhere near as much as my old non conforming Cobra. I shall definitely be trying this out as I definitely need to update this club.

Stephen DiBari says:

Great review! Will definitely be trying this in my long game fitting next week !


But you were swinging the Epic Flash even faster a few days ago, bit confused as to the aerodynamic positives given to the cobra , when you were swinging faster and generating higher ball speed with the Callaway?

Matt J says:

Great review and interceded in seeing some head to heads against the new £500 drivers !
Whilst there’s no fade option the shaft sleeve allows you to set the head to a draw bias I believe..

goodswen mark says:

fantasic driver.

Eugen Kimmerstorfer says:

Can’t hear any more reviews talking about numbers, distance and so on tbh. x.y yards longer than this or that driver … who cares?? Only two things important imho: sound and forgiveness …

James Lovering says:

I’m gaming the F8+ love it 🙂 !

SuperYoda7 says:

Awesome driver and great review! I’m looking forward for the PXG gen2 driver review and maybe a comparison!

goodswen mark says:

much bettre swing than tappin

Chester says:

Very informative review and conclusion is much like a couple others I have seen – that this is a great driver from all aspects and at a price point that should make Callaway, TaylorMade, Titleist ,and others, think again about their inflated prices.  Plus if you don’t like the yellow on the Cobra you can have white instead.

Dim Willow says:

Worse ballspeed compared to your Callaway/Taylormade video.. which seem to come from worse smash factor..which is a bit strange because you hit it good.
