hi guys it's Rick shields down here at Qwest golf gotta meet here at Pro Sports village I'm gonna be testing and reviewing the new Cobra f8 driver and not only the driver I've got the f8 plus I've got the hey ions I've got the one length f8 hyeon's the fairway woods and the hybrids all in f8 from Cobra so this is quite a marathon of testing lots of new clubs to come to stay tuned FA drivers remove that massive head cover and underneath we see a very very smart cool design in the f8 driver this is a black and grey finish they called the grey Nardo gray and this without question in my eyes is the best-looking Cobra driver they've ever made it looks so unbelievable and it features loads and new technologies I've not seen before in drivers at all well got quite a lot to cover but we'll go through the most important aspects first for me the face of this driver is probably the most eye-catching feature to this golf club as soon as you pick it up this has a milled face on the driver that has not been done in drivers ever before and certainly I know of you often see milled facing in irons in wedges and certainly in putters but Cobra claiming now with this new milled face technology you're getting the most precise driver face that's ever been made what that gives you as a golfer apparently is more consistency across the face more ball speed more distance we've heard that bit before we'll actually test that on GT quad hitting real pro V ones in this review we then also see a huge improvement of air flow around the heads they've really worked hard on the airflow they call this arrow or 360-degree arrow they've got these kind of new aerodynamic strips on the top even at the bottom as well that's again reducing air flow making this driver as fast as possible we've seen again that before in technology but not in this kind of way where it's more 360 around the face completely and then we see a very different top of this driver for a cold this is a multi-material we've got carbon at the back and then two titanium at the front this is not new we've seen this before I'm sure many people will say that very much looks like a tailor-made em1 and em2 and I can't argue with that at all it looks so much like a tailor-made and one of them too certainly this contrasting look across the top I'm not sure how a lot of people will view that I thought the em1 and em2 were very good looking drivers are people going to accept that in the cobra we'll wait and see in the f8 model we've got a weight in the back and a weight in the heel this FA is the standard model which is more suited to high spin and kind of get in the ball to draw a little bit I will test the FA plus in the next video we've also still got my fly loft where you can move the weight the loft and the lie angle eight different ways to again fine-tuning this driver let's get hitting this so there's still more technology just wait I feel like I need to hit a shot before we continue with more technology so I've got this in nine and a half I've got this in the Isle dealer rogue I've been fitted for this extra stiff shaft the shaft that I typically use and wow that driver from the top right let's concentrate let's hit some shots probably one was GC quad Cobra f8 driver awesome and that's come out like a rocket I'm expecting a little bit of draw bias because the weight is in the heel even though it's only a two gram weight it has got a bit of heel bias to it that's come out really nice to eight-six carry for 308 really good fly spin rate was lower there at 2100 ball speed was high at 163 can see a load of data there up on screen strike location kind of middle on the equator line now typically what I've seen from Cobra drivers in the past and this is always my gripe is off bottom hits I don't seem to get the performance that was close to that borderline where I think if it went a little bit lower in normal code in Cobra drivers in the past I've seen big drop-offs and performance let's see if that's actually the case in the new F it looks awesome that felt them sounded really solid and Obama that's high off the face that is super low spin and that is long that his long that's the one where I catch it slightly higher off the face with the Cobra driver and I've got no complaints with Cobra drivers in the past when they've hit above the equator line it's just the shots below the equator line I've really struggled with that was smash you can see strike location there just above the center of the strike and that's come out so good what I do like about this Mill face is the mid-face almost has like a well it has a circle in the middle of the mill face which really kind of focuses your attention on the strike location and with it being a black face milled face it's actually very clear to see the dimple marks after you've hit a shot you can actually see the dimples quite clearly which I think for a lot of golfers again is a really good tool to be able to identify strike location now the FAA is a 460cc the FA plus is smaller but the FA is the full size full 460cc head and man that looks really mean the difference between the m1 or tailor-made driver compared to this is where the the front border it's almost a bit more of a v-shape so it does slightly focus your mind more to the middle and those fins on top very much remind me of what Callaway have done in the past and even ping with the turbulator z-- I kind of blend in a few different bits of technology there but this mil face is new didn't nobody's done that before so far very good from the first couple of shots I set a few more with this FA oh that's wrong two books that was a bit Toey not horrendous actually a little bit toeing these are big hits they are I'm very very happy with the length of golf shot I'm very happy with the ball flight the spin rate number seemed good was that a little bit low maybe on the spin yeah look touching Lowell at 1600 and this isn't the low spin setting this shouldn't be that low spin but it seems to be working nicely for me there yeah good three good golf shots now another feature in this driving we saw it in the f7 and this was kind of toyed with an a lot of people did like it they seemed to get a lot of data for me is the Cobra Connect which is powered by our car still sits inside the grip and this is a tool that can be linked to an app on your phone and when you hit you driver the phone knows you've hit that Club because it vibrates and it hears the sound and starts recording how far you've hit certain shots and that's a really good tool and that's actually sick this new Cobra Connect is actually sitting in all of the golf clubs in all of the new f8 I'm really a massive fan of this so far let's just have a quick look at those three golf shots cuz I don't think I'm gonna hit three goods goal as good at golf shots as that and I want to test another few to see what happens if that horrible bottom strike does creep in so we look at the data there across the screen and the three videos I've just hit three shots have just hit there I mean numbers you just don't get any better than that for me and my driving to 89 carry for 312 total distance 1800 spin bear in mind this is not the low spin version so like absolutely exactly where I'd want to be with the driver 161 ball speed launch angle 13 degrees it just does not get any better and honestly the field of sound the flight the look a tick in every single box to me I'm gonna get three more just to see what happens if I do get out with nasty little bottom strike I'm not gonna try and get it but it's just white that they're the three amazing golf shots as white those hit three more and just see what happens and I mean white those next two start again so the one issue I've always had slightly with a cobra driver if I do catch it bottom I find that spin rates really shoot up I'm gonna three more drives and see if that shot actually creeps in it might not do but let's see if it does yeah that's not as good a golf shot let's see how that's performs I didn't absolutely get every bit of that it's done ok it's done ok you'll see strike location on screen in a minute but it's kind of my wave just be able to highlight any kind of inconsistencies across the face see 262 at 3000 spins and you'll see in the next clip where the strike location took place much more much slower much more off the bottom I wasn't intentionally trying to do that but cuz I hit up on the ball quite a bit four and a half five degrees sometimes the bottom strike does creep in it's always been my slight concern with the Cobra driver I almost feel like it those sue players that hit down on the ball a little bit more and potentially hit slightly higher on the face that's done ok I'm not too worried about that shot considered when I hit it so badly let's go a couple more that was a nice a hit yeah see the difference okay I mean it's almost carried the distance of the others total golf shot that was more 1,900 spin so just under 2,000 and you'll see up on screen in a second I mean that that shot is carried the total distance of the last shot strike location above that equator line and I must admit I've accessed through the ball they have swung at zero path to zero face but still got four degrees up I sometimes feel like with a cobra driver I've got to hit down on the ball a bit more to get the right flight but I seem to be getting some very very good numbers off different part to the face let's go one more yeah that was an N just maybe ever so slightly off the bottom of the golf club as long as it's getting there in kind of two sixties I can live with that because deep down I know that wasn't a good golf shot so I can kind of go all right that's that's all right I've got I still got it down there still got it in play yeah two five eight carry quite short for my normal hits but where I struck on the fat face you'll see that that's kind of popping up quite clearly in a minute yeah see how it's below the equator line I still think there's a concern there between forgiveness and and spin numbers when that strike happens low on the face but when it's actually catching middle to high on this driver Wow I'm all over it I'm absolutely all over it I think the performance the looks the field of Technology the idea of the mill face there's a lot of talk about whether this milled face is gonna produce more spin well I don't think that's the case if anything I think it's trick to even spit more spin off the advantage of the carbon crowns you can stick more weight in the bottom of the driver that's what they've done I think they've made a bit of a mistake of copying the m1 m2 look on top is a big mistake on their part but in this black and gray this Nardo grey with the Cobra connects I mean it's got a lot of things going for it it really really has and I think this could be a huge hopefully huge turning point with Cobra they've gone from they've now stuck to a product line as well they've got f6 f7 f8 I think it's really important for Cobra to do this year because there's some continuity some consistency you might have seen the five years test a bit recently I wasn't blown away at all I was actually quite disappointed this has taken it up that level again for me which I'm really impressed with and loads of Technology I'm very impressed with what it's doing how it's looking how its feeling the ball flies to performance everything and bearing in mind this is not the driver that should suit me this is more forgiving version I'm gonna test the f8 force next video stay tuned for that and then we're gonna move into that fairway woods the hybrids and the irons loads more videos to come thanks for watching guys stay tuned subscribe to channel fibra knew that was the king of the cobra King f8 driver very very pleasing numbers it's watching comment below what do you think we'll see you soon
MID HANDICAP TESTING
hi guys it's Rick shields down here at Qwest Golf Academy and we are down here with my good friend Rob Potter we've had the cats aster and we're gonna do a new series of videos testing some drivers and ions that really you guys have picked through social media which is a little catch-up with Rob 20 minute video you can click the link up there in the corner to find out where robbers been with his golf this year not manage to find loads of golf have you well certainly a little bit of injury and other circumstances but you can find out more in the Q&A video we just did before and and we're stuff 13 yeah but he's done that for the reason so you could still stay in this position and still test clubs as the mid handicapped I suppose that right love all love I'm staying for now haha so we're gonna start off the series of testing with the Cobra King f8 driver without question this was the most requested driver that we posted on social media yesterday everybody wanted you to test this bad boy yeah and I thank you for want me to do that as well and you're picking of course you want me to turn it yeah that's a bad way of doing it so we understand drivers some ions tell me what you think about the looks of the Cobra King gate I like the looks of this I really do it's not as garish as I know you've mentioned work with a did the complete crown I watched Rick's review on it with a conflict crown now it looks a little bit tailor-made ish she's very very telling me this but I like the fact it's the Girish ness the gorgeous is been torn down with having the the matte gray and the black and for me he's got better better shelf peel for me but I actually do like the looks of it he just kind of just saw the play he's something that catches you and I just think he I want to way to yeah there's lots of Technology in this driver yeah with the airflow you've got the arc us in the top end the I cross 360 or Cobra connects as the call in it you've got the milled face which again is not something you instantly see on this driver weirdly enough it's something you see a bit later into it yeah you kind of see more of everything else you gotta get you know it's a bit later on so how we're going to test this we're gonna get ten shots probably wants GC quad get Rob's opinion looks before we do the testing and then we're gonna look at performance feel to give it somewhat of a rating towards the end of the video as well has been closely let's call we can get it fitted for a rub driver as well yep what do you think of actually the Robster is it is it a driver that you kind of want to hit yeah it is it's why I think I could you know I'd have to like to get on a course on a range and just give it a damn good thrashing and really smash it well it really is it's one of those I think it's a great looking driver he does it is it it looks sleek I've basically fallen some of the reviews we didn't back in the day it's a bit an injury yeah it looks a bit stealth and I like that does it get Rob's approval yes okay yes it does everyone wants no gets Rob's hits in approval right ten shots probably ones join us in a second and then we'll have a look at some data and we'll get a bit more feedback on Rob's testing of this new Cobra King FA driver [Music] [Music] [Music] okay all ten shots done from Rob I kind of let him to his own devices there and hit the ten shots just something mentioned before at the start of the video Rob typically hits his driver in and around the 220 carry distance yeah getting up from two about 240 to slice 250 on his best shots that's total distance before we look at stats tell me a little bit about what you felt from that driver and any questions around it yeah felt from the driver there isn't a lot of feel off it in terms of knowing you've hit it but yet I knew when I hit the bad shots okay I think that was probably because I knew I put a bad swing on it I knew what my swing was interesting so strikes highlighted the straightest highlight yeah so though I to ask yourself about though in terms with this mill face would that would that be a cause-and-effect for possibly more more spin know like like milled grooves in them could that be an effect without saying that you know it was technology's fault that I've sprayed it I did spray it but could that other an adverse effect and with the milling of the face and I can a hundred percent see where you asked that question because we normally only see milled faces in putters and in wedges and the milling of the face we'll have from my understanding and the evidence I've seen so far minimal effect on directional curvature and the reason being is you don't feel like they're they're almost deep enough I feel like it's a very light milling the reason why it's milled is to keep very consistent thicknesses and thinness through the face not so much to change spin race at all we if you look at like a putter and if you certainly see a faucet milled and like the quite aggressive milling that's super super light milling I'm not I'm not ruling out because I if I honestly don't know the answer fully but I would not I wouldn't I wouldn't imagine it's gonna make a huge influence on direction no oh that's fair enough them however the shots you hit definitely favoritism to it yeah now your this is a draw driver it has a draw bias to it only slightly on this one but it does have a draw biased it's not what the shots we kind of saw on screen we shall saw shots favoring the fade more definite had more of a curvatures to the right and something very interesting numbers certainly not the best I've ever seen your hair driver so not the best driver I've seen you here we've got carry distance of 209 which isn't amazing and I would say it's about 10 yards show where you should be normally that's what it was enough first came to you yeah I think that's ten yard show of where we need to be two to six total distance a spin rate of two and a half thousand now we saw peaks and trusts of that we saw spin rates of nearest to 4000 and also dropping under 2000 quite inconsistence our best driver shop finished at two four nine was it or two four seven and so the best shot was phenomenal but the worst shots weren't great at all it didn't seem to give you a great deal of forgiveness no no it didn't he certainly got a bit of punishment with it been fair enough you know I forget punishment I get point at the bad shot but I said when he hit it out the screws it goes but I didn't know that I hit out the screws no that was the thing I think there was two shots out the ten nails like wow okay that that works yeah but a lot of them didn't put from from his observing didn't sound that bad no no the sound off it again it's not a it's not a typical like bang you've hit a good shot silent he says it's the same sound across the face when I saw like the insert with this mil thing I saw the insert part to a cop class that has an insert I was like ah are we gonna get a bit of feel a bit of that old springiness yeah kind of feel possibly and there's zero there's nothing from that I didn't get a lot of purchase off that so feel and kind of sound as well probably quite matched up together and I don't want to give this a bit of a racing so I think it's important that we come out of this with with some level of a conclusion on performance we're basing performance on distance forgiveness and kind of directional you know you know forgiving factors out of ten what rating would you give that out of ten shots you just may arrive oh I've hit it today I'd say a six yeah I'd have to go that long because I sprained it yeah sprained it it was pretty much all to the right yeah it definitely had a more of a favoritism to the rise of that question yes hood maybe shift more weight in that heel but really typically you're not a weight in the heel type golfer you can play in pretty normal natural neutral I would say yeah when I tested it and this is really interesting because even I was a bit of draw biased I was not behind in that at all the cakes I wasn't finding it over shape and I over draw it I wasn't seeing that to be the case I think I think six is a very fair conclusion I think it's probably it kind of hits the right mark it did okay but nothing that really wowed us at all on looks oh sorry field how would you see I'm feel feel wise again that there's there's not much feel on it at all I really I really can't give a feel to it you know and this would be kind of feel and sound so it feeling sound he eats again eats it kind of much of a muchness if was gonna go on numbers I'd probably say six yeah or a seven on Phelan and and and that it's not like a dislike the drive at all yeah I do like the look of the driver all over the fact he's got the corporate connects into it I love that idea that you can track it a wee bit and I like that idea of it I like the concept so really interest some driver this for me because I feel like before you did the 10 shots you're looking at I'm going wow this is this is a real deal I was really looking forward to it it's it's got the contrast but it's not overbearing it's got the technology it's got everything that I would expect you to love about this driver and a lot of people will love about this driver but it definitely had more of a fade and it didn't seem to hit the numbers that performance wise it would like to see it and but really interesting because it has all the potential to do so it just didn't seem to do in your hands today yeah just do it could one then when it comes down to custom fit that would have to play about with which so many times so much will be doing a long time in custom fit to get the way it's right to get or it could just be I've had a bad day you know it could be one of those don't believe that for a second Rock and has though out of 20 score 10 on performance and on feel and sound we we rate that I would say twelve six and six six miles we said so 12 even though it was a it was a club that Rob wanted smash he gave Robson looks very approving but didn't give us the numbers that were after on that particular task but really interesting to do that guys thanks for watching hope you enjoyed the video if you did hit that thumbs up button comment down below have you have opportunity to test the Cobra driver yet I'd love to hear your thoughts we're gonna move now on to and maybe a set of ions and we're gonna move back to a driver stay tuned more videos coming gone check robot on Twitter he's unlocked his account now so everybody can go and access him thanks watching guys hopefully enjoyed it if you need to much I'll hit our subscribe button and we're gonna test some more products with Rob ha Metallica tester and as always giving us is fair and honest approval and ratings all the Golf Course watching guys don't see that's time
Our First Impressions
[Music] hey dude hey man so the Cobra f8 driver dropped today oh yeah right yeah man I was thinking about giving it a test drive you in alright I'll pick a pga superstorm Paramus like an hour you got it [Music] [Music] infinity all right guys days here January 12 we've got the new Cobra King F each driver much-anticipated everybody's been talking about it we're gonna hit it we've got the woods two big things Mike this new Milt face so what you're going to get with that is it's going to be much more consistent across the face of dinner face it's going to get a little bit more you know pop and you've got also the aerodynamics have been redone so it's supposed to be fast it's supposed to be great we're going to guys give you guys initial impressions or you go check it out right now let's do tell pretty nice so I love the quality of this I mean just take a look good news all the way through feel is nice really like the shaft we got a pop over these grips we say do it all right like the first look here says that CNC milled face that I want to check out so bad so what they do by doing that they're able to get a lot more consistency versus hand polish what we see on traditional drivers also you're gonna be able to get a thinner face you have to be able to get more consistency across the face another thing that they did with this you actually have slightly different loft on the top and the bottom and what that's going to do is going to correct their some miss hits which is I'm interested see because you don't miss it a while also the Cobra connects like that so that's great every drive Oh another big thing all carbon-fiber top right there we're just going to just really reduce the overall weight and big thing they focused on which I'm really just student checking out because I want to see how that translate the swing speed is aerodynamics a lot less drag that we're staying from this club so we got secret that to effect really see if we can feel you should be able to throw a little bit more speed by able to get rid of that air drag so check it out [Music] I'm gonna try taking a little bit of luck off this right now it was a preset at a ten and a half I'm gonna bring it down to a nine see if I could get rid of this hi pops [Music] it was super adjustable on this we got it right now at a nine all right very easy to change that out see right here we're still got the sticker on it but anyway easy to change that out I'm still getting plenty of high trajectory and with that nine [Music] some miss hits decent forgiveness you can see some of them I'm starting out way right and they're working their way back in so it feels forgiving you can see right here see how badly I miss hit that one we've got some right in that that's area right here the big sweet spot but I've got to miss hit they're still managed to work its way back towards Center [Music] the biggest impression for me just feels fast it feels like like I said as with any driver off-the-shelf the one change that I would make I mean we just literally picked this thing up off of the shelf adjustment I would make is I'd get it fitted for the right shaft the flex on this is a little bit too loose and it's also a little too long there's me I get it cut down I would just adjust that that shaft but otherwise it's a great feeling club I'm just kind of choking down on a little bit to get a little bit closer to work with normal chef Mike I play [Music] down the middle but take that all that for me that's good all right so my first impressions are forgiving Club fast Club I'm getting more distance than I usually do I'm not a big you know long-distance driver off the tee I'm usually I'm happy with 250 out to 60 that uses my game right now granted it's a simulator but I'm getting to 75 so I'm getting a little bit more you know you got to give and take a little bit but the simulator and also the other a caveat to this it's a little bit longer shaft and I would you normally play with the body if I was gonna dwell by this club tomorrow get fitted for it get the right length shaft goes off the shelf and talk about this all the time on the podcast you're gonna get a little bit longer usually then than what you should be playing but otherwise like I said forgiving Club I pushed to hit a little bit off the face and they're working their way back Blaney on this club my plenty of trajectory like height right oh yeah I mean that's one of my biggest first initial impression is that we're getting a ton of height out of it even at it edit playing to 9 degree loft so that the launch is nice but not like I'm losing yardage over it's not too high because like I said the art adji is something I'm really happy feels good in the hands looks good too / sleek look with that carbon-fiber back top but it's great club so far like almost just kill me with Teague so while Mike's taking a couple cuts over there I'll just show you that is this - I don't know if we're gonna get a chance to hit it but check it out here's your f8 fairway wood check out the rails another great-looking Club sticker still on it and if you can peel it off yet but stains deal carbon fiber top nice-looking Club and then you've got the hybrid that goes with it - f8 hybrid same rail system 19 degree overall some really solid pretty clubs that's for sure his aiming Cobras got on lock and some pretty colors alright so those are our initial impressions I'm looking forward to hitting this a whole lot more make sure you subscribe comment below let us know what you think in the new f8 let us know what other drivers you wants to get it down here and check out because we're gonna be checking out a lot more the next couple of weeks it's like driver season alright so comment those below make sure you hit that subscribe button like this video for a lot more of it and thanks for following along no thank you
I welcome Eric smack Newson down here Latham Golf Academy in this video we're gonna look and test and review the new king cobra f8 driver so brand new drag from Cobra for 2018 this officially is getting launched in February early February in Europe anyway I'm not sure about anywhere else in the world but in Europe early February and and it's stacked with a bit of Technology this is a lot more happening this and it looks beautiful first looks at this it looks really really great so I've got GC th empty set up here off so we're gonna look at some numbers here give you guys a little bit of the feedback armlocks feel I'll still look at some numbers a little bit more detail later on in the video after hit a few shots and maybe just give you guys an idea how this drivers gonna perform okay so as I put that down by the book ball first instincts I saw I thought the head cover off which is a heck of a lot massive by the way but I don't buy the ball it looks great it's it's really square off to that smart hub system they've got the sword here which they've done in various of previous models there so whatever you change its next set in the fate the head always looks or the face always looks square at address and it does it you know you put that down it just looks really clean quite square lucky sometimes in the 460cc heads and maybe the ones that aimed a moment maybe more the mid to high handicappers sometimes seem a bit toad in that draw bias they're just you know generally helping that left to right ball fight but this just sits really square not stunning behind the ball gray and then the darker carbon gray back and it just was really good okay I'm gonna get this burst wanna hit okay like that flight okay that's beautiful that felt really good the sound of that is great again it's that carbon detainee mix we know from previous all other manufacturers it gives it slightly more muted sound there that's exactly the same there so you just to see some numbers it was historically myself of Cobra and I've always struggled with the spin number I would seem to be getting a little bit sort of higher on the spin number so quite intrigued to see how this sort of works we now I've got this set with the 12 gram weight at the back of the head here so this is promoting a slightly high loss slightly higher spin but I wanted maybe giving you guys you know it's not so much for me it's more for you guys out there which I'm guessing if you're into this sort of model you're probably going to have it in that setting which is its most forgiving most sort of easier option in a way I'll set into feeder guys here obviously you can switch that 12 gram into the heel and switch the 2 gram into the back and obviously more weight in the heel will promote more that draw biased flight probably the biggest technology biggest change that stands out to me is the face okay we've got a milled face here which I'm from my memory I can't think of any other brand of drive that's produced a milled face before so this is a CNC mill such precision milled here it's got a circular sort of milling section in the middle which really sort of highlights the center of the clubface is so this is what Kerr was saying he's providing some more consistent numbers off the club face off different parts the club face you don't really see that million as you sit down by and the golf ball that obviously but it does look really quite striking when you get up close to it it's next one hit okay now liek that one a little bit to the right there so just seeing that pop up a little bit more obviously that's more me than the golf up there just push that off so still doing right there to eight it's not bad and they struck up really well it's Ben's probably gonna jump up yeah not much though so that's not pretty good there I've said the direction is again more me I've just left that clubface a little bit open felt really solid the sound and love the sound about the clubface I'm loving the look of it and got the old saw little mounds on the top here which is obviously break and pull up a bit of airflow over the drive and try not to squeeze out a little bit of speed speed out of the club head through impact so I'll see the do a 1/8 pulse at a pulse option here which is obviously a slightly smaller headaches the 440 CC head so this more testing here is that a she's the 460cc sauce little larger profile there but it doesn't look huge I think because of the gray there it doesn't look massive beyond it doesn't look a huge footprint it does feel really like though that's probably the first thing that really stands out to me feels incredibly like how the shaft sixty-five gram so it's not massively like but officer there is heavier shaft options through custom fit but just feel quite like in my hands here love the sound of it feels fantastic off-the-cuff face again maybe just spinning up a little bit for me ideally here so possibly with my sort of speed are probably more soon to maybe into the a pulse version just try and get that spin down a little bit I can see it just climb a tiny bit there but it feels superb off the club face it really does so we still have the next set in here that again they've done in previous models so this option in the FA can change a lot from nine all the way through to twelve degrees here with some draw options in there also and then also you've got the weights where you can move more into that draw biased or neutral bias so it's it is there's a lot of options there I get this really pushes down this Custom Fit side of things there's a lot of shaft options weight positions next settings here to really sort of fine tuning into the flag that you're really sort of looking for all its more optimum for yourself here but they gave this carbon had you know looks it looks great you know visually aesthetically beyond that golf ball looks really really good right okay that's a little bit he leaked the flight looks stunning I've got a female just drop off a little bit yeah has a little bit so run out to 72 so what's it my longest there but it wasn't horrific and that was a Miss strike that was more so slightly low heel there but it kept its flight pretty neutral there and did did alright on sort of distance okay right so let's love a look at sometimes a little bit more detail and see how that f8 is performing okay guys let's look at some numbers so club head speed 112 ball speed 158 they're a little bit low my ball speed there to be honest a big catch I say that last one though you can see drops off the launch there 8.1 call it low in the face that's where I'm gonna give up a bit of ball speed you see that drop off there at 155 but did get anything in the one six is there which I mean it to be fair is a cold evening here so I'm probably not firing all full cylinders at the moment but launched I got at 10 degrees to spin it 3000 so it's a little bit high for me again this is probably where that the f8 pulse would probably suit me a little bit more but again this is whole reason why they offer two different sized heads and and you know to try and hit different launches for certain golfers so peaking out at 32 yards they're carrying average at 259 so you peaking at around 263 running out roughly 280 depending on the ground conditions it's a good blocking Drive it looks fantastic because a lot of technology happening here I'm loving the color scheme they've gone here and this is only available this one color now which i think is a good thing you know I think for the stock his side of things trying to stop four or five different color heads you know everybody's got a different favorite color it's very difficult as a stocking point of view so I think one color is great for the retailer's but I think you know it's a very classy sort of lock I'm loving the look of it's very very good they've really upped the game they're Cobra from from previous models I like attack I loving that sort of milled face there you know as I say it's got a lot of tech happening here he still got the Cobra connect on the grip end here which is powered by our costs so this is a GPS system which connects to your smartphone so when you're on the golf course you can measure your shots distance plot your way around the golf course and Cobra actually opened this up and put it through all the irons or the new FAI ins anyway and all the other clubs they offer it in the range so you've got a full mapping system when you're out in that golf course I think a lot of golfers will add down you can get some really good feedback through your sort of shot patterns when you're out in the golf course by you know using that sort tracking system okay good driver that the numbers probably not right on the number for me but I know I'm probably more suited to the FA pulse which I'm gonna review and test shortly so really excited to see that and maybe there's any differences of numbers for me but feel wise great sound fantastic block nailed on I think this is a really good drive up some good or custom options there for golfers out there to really get fried to which is again this is with a whole reason you've gotta go get Custom Fit I mean we're gonna be doing Cobra again into next year so we'll us from February when its launch will have all the fitting kit here at Linden Golf Academy
