The KING F8+ Driver introduces COBRA's first CNC milled driver face paired with 360° Aero™ Technology, bringing you COBRA’s smartest, fastest, most precise driver ever. Tour preferred shape for maximum workability.
Featuring COBRA's thinnest and hottest face, the KING® F8+ driver delivers the perfect blend of speed and workability with precision face milling, aero and adjustable weight technology.
WHO IT'S FOR
- Tour to 15 handicap golfers with higher swing speeds seeking lower, more controlled trajectories with reduced spin for enhanced shot shaping capability.
- Engineered to deliver tour level performance. The KING® F8+ is COBRA's most technologically advanced driver featuring the industry's first ever forged CNC milled Titanium face with E9 Technology™.
INTRODUCING THE FIRST CNC PRECISION MILLED FACE
Golf's first CNC precision milled forged titanium driver face with E9 Technology™ is thinner, hotter, and more precise.
PRECISION MILLED FOR MAXIMUM SPEED
CNC milling yields more precise face thickness controls compared to hand-polishing, allowing COBRA engineers to design a thinner and faster conforming face.
COBRA'S THINNEST AND LIGHTEST FACE
Tighter face thickness tolerances allow the face to be milled as thin as possible to deliver increased deflection for faster ball speeds. This yields a face that is 10% lighter.
MULTI DIRECTIONAL CNC MILLING PATTERN
A multi-directional CNC pattern delivers a thinner face, while the circular milling pattern in the center provides an aesthetically pleasing visual of the Sweet Zone™.
CNC MILLED VS. HAND POLISHED
The traditional hand-polishing process can lead to inconsistencies in face thickness and curvature between each manufactured driver head. CNC precision milling ensures that every driver face is machined to precise specifications to achieve optimal performance.
PRECISION FACE THICKNESS.
Compared to hand-polished drivers, CNC machining yields more precise thicknesses resulting in a thinner and hotter face that increases ball speed and distance.
TI-8-1-1 BODY & FORGED E9™ FACE
A lightweight 8-1-1 Titanium body and forged face saves discretionary weight to move the CG lower for improved launch and speed. CNC milling delivers a thinner and more precise E9™ variable thickness face structure for increased distance on off-center hits.
BALL SPEED GAINS
Tested against a traditional hand-polished driver face, the CNC milled face on the KING® F8 driver produced increased ball speeds ranging from 1.2 to 1.6 mph across the face.
OPTIMIZED SWEET ZONE ™ WITH E9 TECHNOLOGY ™
After analyzing over 25,000 unique shots in our testing, we discovered that 99% of golfers hit the face in an elliptical pattern ranging from low heel to high toe. While most golf companies design a circular sweet spot around the center of the face, COBRA's patented E9 Technology™ is designed in an elliptical pattern to create a SWEET ZONE™ that allows more hot spots farther away from the center of the face.
OPTIMIZED TRAJECTORIES WITH DUAL ROLL
Unlike traditional drivers designed with a constant roll radius, COBRA's innovative Dual Roll Technology™ utilizes different curvatures on the top and bottom of the face to optimize launch and spin for shots hit above or below face center.
TILTED BULGE AND ROLL AXIS
COBRA's patented Dual Roll™ design features more curvature on the top half of the face and a flatter bottom half to optimize launch and spin for shots hit both high and low on the face.
Using CNC milling, COBRA® engineers were able to design a more precise horizontal face curvature (bulge radius) to compensate for gear effect and deliver more accuracy on shots hit on the heel and toe.
360 AERO™ NEXT LEVEL SPEED.
Innovative crown and sole aero trips optimize aerodynamic performance for faster clubhead speeds and increased distance.
360° AERO™ TECHNOLOGY TM
Polymer crown trips are 90% lighter than Titanium, to help improve aerodynamic performance without raising the CG. Titanium trips are utilized on the sole for increased durability, while lowering the CG for enhanced speed.
LESS DRAG MORE YARDS
Represented in the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) models below, the streamlined shape of the KING® F8 driver optimizes the flow separation on the crown and sole to significantly reduce drag. Lower drag will give you more clubhead speed and ultimately more distance off the tee.
WHERE AERO MATTERS
Distance is dependant on club speed. The addition of aero trips and a more streamlined shape is important to reduce drag in areas of the swing where speed is lost. The aero trips are strategically positioned relative to the orientation of the airflow, speed, and drag through the swing to increase clubhead speed for maximum distance.
TWO ADJUSTABLE CG SETTINGS:
FRONT & BACK
The KING® F8+ driver features front and back CG settings, allowing you to tune your trajectory and spin to maximize distance.
TUNE BALL FLIGHT
The front weight setting promotes a lower, penetrating ball flight, while the back weight setting slightly increases spin for higher launch.
MYFLY 8 WITH SMART PAD
8 easily adjustable loft settings help you manage trajectory and fine tune launch and spin to maximize distance. Increasing or decreasing the loft will adjust the launch by +/- .5 degrees and the spin by +/- 400 rpms, respectively.
A compact clubhead shape at address delivers reduced spin and a slightly lower launching ball flight for more workability and control.
ULTRALIGHT CARBON FIBER CROWN
Lightweight carbon fiber provides the weight savings needed to incorporate moveable weights into the design, while also repositioning weight low and back for improved launch and forgiveness.
