    Default Cobra f9 the hype is REAL!

    So just purchased a cobra f9 and was fitted for a 10.5 with a hazardous smoke.
    Previously I had a pxg driver and before that a cobra f8 so Iím not upgrading from a driver thatís more than 5 years old where you would expect big performance jump from old to new.
    I have been watching all the reviews on the driver on you tube from TXG, Rick shiels etc before I pulled the trigger, I was little sceptical on all the glowing reviews.
    I had my first round with it yesterday and all I can say is WOW the hype around this driver is real.
    The big difference I instantly noticed was how far the ball went on mishits especially low heal. I was not loosing much distance at all and I couldnít believe how tight my shot dispersion was on good and bad strikes.
    On good hits itís easily longer than my PXG and cobra, I play at ocean shores and if you guys know the 18th hole I was 195m out on the upslope on the par 5 after my drive into the wind yesterday. Iím usually there on a still day or with the wind behind but havenít been that far out hitting into a decent breeze.
    If you guys are in the market for a driver this year make sure to try this one out!

    Not even close. It doesn't even warrant a capital letter.

    If it did have a capital, it would then be better than the Wilson C series or D Series, but not as good as the Ping G series.

    Cobra used to have an S series, so presumably they were even better.

    I'll have to look through Daves thread to continue this theme, but I don't think I'll bother. I'll just wait until he gets one.
    nothing to see here

    Seriously though, Cobra should give Rick Shiels and TXG guys a big thank you card and endless supply of beer. Thatís the reason I got interested in this driver as well. Much more effective than all the marketing hype.

    I wonder if BITS will get one that I can call dibs on when he's ready to move it on? I'm still using the Fly Z+ that he let go. 😁

    I play with titties now! Your next driver will be more awesome than a cobra.

    I'm waiting to demo the Gen2 PXG drivers against the F9 before I really decide which to be on the lookout for later in the year
