SPOTTED: Cobra Golf King F9 Speedback driver


SHARE THIS STORY



Cobra Golf has a new driver coming soon, and it's just landed on the USGA and R&A lists of conforming drivers.

Debuting on the Oct. 29 listing is the Cobra King F9 Speedback, the next iteration in Cobra's high-performing series of drivers. With the driver hitting the conforming list, the governing bodies publish a picture of the driver from the sole side, so we can start to get an idea of the features of the product.



While the photo is black and white, we can get the sense of a contrast of colors. There's certainly some black, and there are brighter colors -- potentially white -- that are part of the paint job.

With the F8 series, we had a pair of weights on the sole positioned in the front and back of the center portion. There was a lighter weight and a heavier weight, whose positions influenced center of gravity placement. In the provided photo from the USGA, the King F9 has a 14-gram and a 2-gram weight. Place the heavier weight back for the lowest-and-most-back center of gravity.

There's the phrase "Ultralite Carbon Wrap" to suggest there's more carbon-fiber material in this head, using the weight savings to continue to drive down the center of gravity. We would assume the Speedback has to something to do with aerodynamics to help deliver more swing speed.


Perhaps there's a sole channel, perhaps not. There's definitely going to be Cobra Connect, powered by Arccos Golf, in the grip. There's definitely MyFly adjustability on the hosel.

As we find out more, we'll share it.
