Buyers Guide 2017: Cobra King F7 & F7+ Driver

Cobra King F7 driverCobra is calling these new drivers its longest and smartest drivers to date. The Cobra King F7 and F7+ provide golfers with a choice between oversized performance or traditional shaping while delivering play-able distance and unmatched feel with extreme forgiveness. These models — as well as the KING LTD Black — boast the “Cobra Connect” Powered by Arccos system which features an ultralight sensor embedded in the grip, allowing golfers to automatically track the distance and accuracy of every drive. Cobra Connect users simply pair their club with the free Arccos Driver smartphone app to receive their performance data, access rangefinder GPS distances for 40,000 courses and compete in the King of the Hole virtual long drive competition. Players will also be able to access exclusive Cobra content within the Arccos Driver app, including product tech videos and golf tips from Cobra coaches and PGA Tour Pros. On the course, the Cobra Connect communicates at shot impact with a golfer’s smartphone, which must be carried in a user’s front pocket. It then uses a proprietary shot detection algorithm and sensors on a user’s smartphone to identify the location of their second shot, allowing driving distance and accuracy to be recorded in real time. At the end of a round, golfers can review their overall driving performance, track improvement and share pictures, longest drives or key stats directly with their friends or other Cobra Connect users.

The KING F7 driver features a larger face and address profile that increases MOI and provides more distance, forgiveness and speed across the face. An adjustable weight system with three CG settings in the front, the back and heel positions al-lows for three differing ball flights – low, high and draw, to pro-vide golfers with optimum distance and trajectory for a variety of conditions. The heavier 12g weight in the front CG position creates a lower, penetrating ball flight with less spin and more roll for maximum distance. When the heavier weight is placed in the back position, it delivers a higher,
towering ball flight with added spin for more  carry distance and increased forgiveness.  When moved to the heel CG position, it  works to reduce spin to deliver straighter  drives that correct a slice.

The KING F7  also features a re-engineered Forged  Ti-811 E9 Face that is lighter, thinner  and hotter, creating faster ball speeds  and a larger Sweet ZoneTM across the  face. A multi-material TeXtreme Carbon Fiber Crown frees up discretionary weight, allowing Cobra engineers to create three distinct CG positions and three performance distances. The F7+ Driver utilizes the same key technologies as the F7 including three weight settings for CG adjustability, a Forged Ti-811 face, TeXtreme Carbon Fiber Crown and MyFly8 technology.
