    Can I buy the single length heads and make them stock length? I like the weight of the single length driving iron head and I want that in stock length. I like the colors better too. I am an SMU grad like Bryson. Thanks.

    Which specific feature or characteristic of the F8/F8+ would you say most differentiates these drivers from those offered by other manufacturers, and from your older models, and why? Thanks!

    where do you see the market for one-length going in the future? do you think that it would be advantageous for beginner golfers to start with one length and move towards progressive length clubs as they improve?

    Hi, been a Cobra convert since the Fly-Z+, in fact it's still my gamer, nothing has been able to beat it out as far as consistent distance and accuracy. I just got my hands on an F8+ head and can't wait to start hitting it. My question is, is there a big amount of difference in the makeup of the F8+ as compared to the Fly-Z+? Like, should I be playing it at less or more loft than I played the FZ at, is it naturally higher or lower launching/spinning? I've only hit it twice at a golf shop with the stock setup, didn't pay too much attention to the numbers, but the feel is superb!

    By going to a milled face design on the driver, were you able to gain ball speed and forgiveness?

    Also, with moving to a milled design on the face of the driver, is there a potential for the groves to be worn down over a period of time?

    Re: King Forged TEC Black irons...

    - Current back-ordered status on Forged TEC Black irons? - Why? - If I order today, when will you ship?

    - The website doesn't show Golf Pride CP2 Wrap in midsize option. - Availability? - If I order without grips, will I save? - How much?

    - The website shows 5° loft gaps from the 7-iron to the GW! - Seems excessive?

    - Can combo sets be ordered with Forged TEC / Pro Forged MB irons?

    Re: Hybrids:

    - Can the swingweight be increased on the Hybrids from D0 to D4-5? - Hot-melt added?

    Thanks HipCheck!

    The King pro irons in the black finish are some of the best iron design ever made. Is there any plan to have a similar finish in a one length set, in wedges, driving irons? Cobra is really adavanced with respect to using tech to improve performance, I’d love to see Cobra make putters.

    Hi, I've been a loyal Cobra iron player since the King Cobra ProMB's and CB's back quite a few years ago and now play the S3 Pro CB's and have to say I love these irons and have been playing them for last 4 seasons. My question is do you think Cobra will ever go back to making those satin finished Endo forged irons again? I tried the newer blades and CB's and just couldn't get the same feel as I did with the older irons. I wish I could get some old stock if there was any available I'd buy 3 sets for future use. Also haven't tried the F8+ as of yet but I still love the Fly Z+ and the King LTD, some great Drivers so i'm sure the F8 series will be great as well. Keep up the great work guys. I keep telling all my friends they are missing out on some of the best made clubs today! Again if there's any old stock hidden of those S3's hit me up please!

    Thanks, Tim

    What's the best way to get fitted properly and matched up with the right set of Cobra clubs for me?
  • ruffellprefleyruffellprefley Members Posts: 2,029 ✭✭
    how do you manage the one length utility iron launch, considering the likelihood of a lower club head speed than the equivalent “normal length” utility iron? obviously they aren’t simply the same head. is a higher swing speed needed to manage the single length?
  • ZAPZAP ClubWRX Posts: 1,584 ClubWRX
    Strongly considering moving from the EPIC SZ to the F8+. Part of what I like about the EPIC SZ is it seems to have a little fade bias.

    Would you say the F8+ is similar in this regard?

    By the way nice work on the CB/MB combo set. Many good things to say.
  • Bobby sBobby s Members Posts: 536
    I have one cobra club in the bag right now and that's a Fly Z + driver. As a lefty I dont switch clubs all that much. What is it about your clubs, especially irons that might make me consider trying?
  • hhems10hhems10 Members Posts: 164 ✭✭
    I picked up a set of the previous version Forged Tec (non black) over the winter. I was wondering if there was a difference between those and the new black version other than the color.

    I love cobra fws. Been using one for the past few years with great success and really like the F6 Baffler's versatility as well as the F7's adjustability. I also love the Fly-Z+ 3-4 for it's feel and performance. What prompted the return to split models (+ and reg) instead of one adjustable model? If you used a 3w almost exclusively from the tee, which model of F8 would be best? And I noticed Rickie dumped the Fly-Z+ and F6 Baffler (2 of my favorites) for F8+s. What can the F8+ do for him that the other models didn't?

    Also,... If, say, I wanted to have pink or blue weight on the FW, can I use an F8 driver weight in a fw?

    Thank you!!!
