Switching the weight to the back port gets you a more neutral set-up, which generates slightly more spin and plenty of forgiveness. The 9-degree version of the King F9, which will likely be played by better players, has less of this effect because those players generate more ball speed and do not have trouble getting carry distance, but the 12-degree head, which will likely appeal to higher-handicap players, has more. It does seem odd that in this day and age someone spends all day every day finishing driver faces, but that is the unseen world of club manufacturing. The changeable weight ports in the sole of F9 make sure that all that speed is not wasted by optimizing launch and spin for every type of golf swing. It's seems hard to believe but I could hit a 250 yd drive with the Epic on one hole and the next hole it would be 330. Even though launch stayed the same, the spin did go up by around 400 rpm, although this could partly be because the strikes were slightly lower on the face.
Cobra say that the difference should be about 500rpm spin and 0. The Cobra King F9 Speedback range is on sale from the end of January, 2019. The standard 14g weight in the front port and 2g port in the back will reduce spin and lower the launch angle. A rounded sole and the addition of aerodynamic 'skirts' on the sides and rear also make the latest Cobra driver slice through the air easier than ever before. The King F9 is more aerodynamic than previous Cobra drivers, and it maintains a low and back center of gravity.

I did hit a few fades. Come up with a new angle to take peoples money its there. Golfers can choose from the standard model, which has a fixed 15g tungsten weight in the back, or the smaller Tour version, which has a 12g weight at the front for a more penetrating flight. To fine tune ball flight there are interchangeable 14g and 2g sole weights as well as the adjustable MyFly hosel but through a custom order, additional 6g, 10g and 18g weight options are available to produce even more optimal launch conditions and flight. I have been averaging 15 to 25 yards plus it has straighten out the slice that I had. It sets up very neutral and aligns very naturally with the edges that are on the crown.
The addition of aero trips and a more streamlined shape is important to reduce drag in areas of the swing where speed is lost. What you will no doubt be seeing more of is Cobra's new milled face process that removes the person from the process to create a more exact face that is 3% thinner and 10% lighter than before. F9 gave me both length and consistency. Regardless of the setting, the Smart Pad designed into the sole ensures the face appears square to the target line. I went to a demo day and got fitted for the new F9 driver. And Cobra's faith in Speedback technology means they are proud to declare that the new F9 Speedback irons are the longest, fastest and most forgiving game-improvement irons they have ever produced.
Specs: Carbon fiber crown with a milled 8-1-1 titanium face, moveable weights and adjustable hosel. A Tour version of the fairway is also available bringing all he Speedback advantages in a more compact shape. To help golfers learn more about their driving habits and performance, each King F9 comes standard with Cobra Connect, an Arccos-powered shot-tracking system embedded in the grip. The one distinct advantage the F9 has is the competitive price point at which it will be sold, and some golfers will love that. This is innovation, not imitation.
The Cobra is long and accurate but more importantly, it's so fast. See the entire F9 product line from Cobra Golf. This design streamlines the clubhead to promote an uninterrupted flow of air from the leading edge to the tail, to reduce drag and increase club speed. Give this driver a test run and you will buy. You will gain mph's in your swing. My misses are so much smaller in accuracy and distance. Titanium trips are positioned on the sole to speed up the flow of air traveling underneath the driver.
Well, it has earned a spot in my bag. The 9-degree version of the King F9, which will likely be played by better players, has less of this effect because those players generate more ball speed and do not have trouble getting carry distance, but the 12-degree head, which will likely appeal to higher-handicap players, has more. Amazing Driver Rating Review by Mr. Had no intentions of buying a new driver but decided to test several all the big names and continued to come back to the F9! Can draw or fade at will but it wants to go straight. A couple days later on the course, 10 out of 14 fairways hit.
The looks of this driver at address will divide opinion. In comparison is the Cobra much better in the complete performance. Exclusion: Yes New to the golf lingo? This design produces a 12% larger carbon fiber area that saves 10 grams compared to titanium driver crowns. The pro came back and found out I was telling the truth and showed me where he himself put a large cut into the new ball he hit. Just wondering, is it worth upgrading to the F8+ from the 2017 M1? Overall, I cannot say enough good things about the F9 and I would not hesitate to recommend it to players of all abilities, but especially to high swing speed players.
Power Ridges Two ridges along the crown help reduce drag on the club head to increase club speed. They are similar drivers aimed at high speed, lower spin players so you are right on the shaft and it will best to take the M1 along to a Cobra fitting and see which wins for you. Very nice sounding thwack when hit. Except they are not flat as they have bulge and roll, or horizontal and vertical curvature that creates the gear effect to keep off centre hits straight. That combination of features helps make the King F9 17 percent more aerodynamic than the King F7 that was released just two years ago and about 12 percent more aerodynamic than the King F8. For me the 12g weight in the front 'Low' position was best at the mid-range loft of 10°, but I am sure maybe upping the loft to 10.
