PREVIEW: Cobra Golf King F6+ and F6 drivers, fairway woods and hybrids

Cobra Golf F6+ driver

Just weeks after the release of its King LTD driver, Cobra Golf has introduced the F6 and F6+ line of drivers, fairway woods and hybrids. These new clubs don't intend to replace the King LTD, but rather seem the evolution of the well-performing Fly-Z line from the start of 2015.

What made Fly-Z, especially the Fly-Z+ model, work so well was its weighting that could be flipped in one of two positions to move the club's center of gravity. The F6+ takes that a step further with what the company dubs the CarbonTrac weighting system, a five-position weight slider moving from front to back of the club. Its structure is made from carbon fiber, lighter than the titanium used to similar effect in the Fly-Z+. A lighter titanium body and a forged face gave engineers the 18 grams (as opposed to 15 grams on the Fly-Z+) they used for the weight on the track, allowing the player to dial in ball flight.

The forged face has variable-face thickness, moving weight where it needs to be using the company's long-used nine-zone view of the club face.

Speed Channel technology cups the face to allow it to flex more at impact and move some weight to elsewhere in the club, where it can provide better forgiveness for the player.

The driver will have eight-setting adjustability: 9-, 9.5-, 10.5-, 11.5- and 12-degree settings, as well draw settings at 9.5, 10.5 and 11.5 degrees.

The Cobra King F6+ driver will be available Jan. 15, 2016 for $400, coming initially in two colors -- black and blue -- with another two colors -- white and grey -- available in March. The driver will be available with regular, stiff and x-stiff flexes, with a stock Matrix OZIK Black Tie 65g graphite shaft.

A F6+ Pro model will be available via custom orderas well, sporting the same 460cc head, but with a lower loft range (7-10 degrees), as well a flatter lie angle and fade, not draw, settings.

The F6 model lacks the depth of adjustability of the F6+, but sports a dual-position weight system, using 3- and 10-gram weights to move the center of gravity in two positions. Removing the 3-gram weight altogether creates a third configuration.

The same eight hosel adjustments in the F6+ will be available in the F6.

The Cobra King F6 Driver will also be available Jan. 15, 2016, for $350 in the same four colors as the F6+ in lite, regular, stiff and x-stiff flexes on a stock Matrix OZIK Red Tie 65Q4 graphite shaft.

The King F6 fairway woods, available in 3-, 5- and 7-wood models, will have the same dual-weight system as the F6 driver, sporting 3- and 20-gram weights, as well the eight-position MyFly8 adjustability system. The fairway woods will be available Jan. 16, 2016 for $240 in black and blue,  in lite, regular, stiff and x-stiff flexes with a stock with a Matrix OZIK Red 65Q4 graphite shaft.

The F6 line also offers three hybrid models -- 2-, 3- and 4-iron lofts -- with a 13-gram weight in the back of the head for high moment-of-inertia and a center-line center of gravity. It is 3 grams lighter than the Fly-Z line, uses the Speed Channel cup with a 455 SS face and sports eight-position adjustability.

The Cobra King F6 hybrids will be available Jan. 15, 2016 for $200, available only in black with a MATRIX OZIK Red Tie 75Q4 graphite shaft.
