Cobra KING F9 SPEEDBACK Driver Review

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 10 Jan 2019

For 2019, Cobra Golf has launched its new KING F9 SPEEDBACK Driver, which has been designed to offer advanced technology, combining a highly aerodynamic clubhead with a low centre of gravity, an innovation added to ensure these are the brand's longest and fastest clubs yet.

Last year, we had the opportunity to meet Jose Miraflor, the VP of Marketing at Cobra PUMA Golf to learn more about the new KING F9 SPEEDBACK Family. You can see that full interview here.

But does the F9 build on the legacy of previous models and deliver on the lofty premise? Golfshake PGA Professional and Equipment Expert Ryan Rastall has tested and reviewed the new driver, which certainly impressed him. "You're going to see a lot of this because of the funky colour scheme, so it's going to be noticeable on TV, but I would definitely recommend trying this yourself, get custom-fitted properly for it, try different shafts, different weight positions and lofts, just to make sure you're getting the driver that is right for you, but it's one to consider for 2019.

Below are the KING F9 SPEEDBACK™ Driver Specifications:

12 o Driver - High Launch/Mid Spin - 10.5, 11.0, 11.0D, 12.0, 12.0D, 12.0, 13.0D, 13.5
