    Wow!! Hideous woods and irons. Just a giant strikeout for me.



    All kinds of **** going on on top of the woods and the shape of the irons is the worst I’ve seen in years...from any maker.





    Edit... ok. It’s been a few days....I’m softening a bit on the irons. I guess I’ve seen worse.

    Not a fan of the head shape on the drivers personally (reminds me of the Wilson Triton...), the F8+ driver I thought had a good shape, it just feels like they tried to throw as much "technology" as they could on this. The hybrids they nailed though, I feel like they always do a good job with those.

    All of the shafts are real deal. They just painted the Atmos shafts black due to the looks with the head colors. The write up on the golf spy website confirms this.

    The one lengths interest me, being a former owner of the F8 one lengths.



    I am not crazy about that sole in the 5 irons. Think I might have to see it in person, looks very fat and chunky from the photo.



    In terms of iron looks, the Forged One are still hard to beat but Cobra has to do something with the 5 & 4 one lengths to get more carry. These 2 irons were the reason why I went back to variable lengths. However, the F8 were outstanding in terms of feel for a non-forged iron so hopefully, the F9s would carry on that tradition.



    As for their "Pwrshell", in the F8s that was only for the 4 to 7 irons. The 8 to PW were non Pwrshell. However, the F7s were all Pwrshell. I'd like to see what they did here if they broke it or they carried it through the entire set....



    Driver is pretty sweet looking but I'll wait for the Epic Flash before I decide. Is it me or Cobra yellow is going to be very close to the Epic Flash yellow (if the rumours are true) image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I was looking forward to this year's driver , but as it stands with looks the F8 wins hands down for me.



    Will still be testing as soon as it's available to do so.

    F9 with white looks great. Everything else meh. Can't own the Fairway because of that weird asymmetric stuff on top...would drive me nuts to look down at I think. Hybrids look like of plain and meh... Also don't like there's really no adjustability. Most hybrids tend to be a little upright or have a little bit of a closed face and being able to fade bias or flatten the lie is something I think a lot of guys would like to see who don't need/want the low flight of a 3i.



    It's a meh from me overall. Nothing there really wows me. Face milling on the fairway is neat, but does it make it more forgiving or go up my ball speed?

    Driver looks good (from address position - I don't care too much about the bottom of the club). Don't see how it offers anything my F8 isn't currently giving me, but that probably won't stop me from trying one out. The eternal Ho in me.



    Anyone else put off by the 3 wood crown? The 3 ridges on top near the toe seem like it would make it uneven and a distraction.

    Man, those irons are horrific. Does it help to call them F9, the same as your high performance driver? I guess they do market that driver to all handicaps but still, those irons are about as bad as it gets, and I'm a fan of Cobra. I've got to go gouge my eyes out now. .

    Driver = I'm a little indifferent. Not stoked on the colors. I think this release is a step down from F8 / F8+. Might try one for giggles, but I am sticking with my F8+, and now I am probably going to look for a back up just in case lol



    Fairway = I was excited to learn that they are using the CNC milled face. I love how the driver feels and could only imagine this helps the fairways. The top is ridiculously fugly. I can't understand it at all.



    Hybrid = looks are a win. very simple with cobra logo. have loved the logo over the script they used on F7. The only thing is they are all glued fixed hosels again. F8 started the glued / fixed loft in the hybrids. F7 hybrids were adjustable for those that like to play. Would be nice if they got back to that at some point.



    Irons = I don't think they look that bad, and I'll bet they are very forgiving. These are more geared for your weekend hackers I think. It will help them strike the ball. Obviously not as pretty as a clean modern muscle back.

    I really like the blue on the hybrid. I wish it would continue onto the crown like the Bio-Cell hybrids.

    Irons don't look anything special, but there iron market isn't really for single digit handicaps. I'm sure the irons perform well. The driver has some interesting tech (or marketing). I don't think the driver looks bad, but isn't the best looking either. If it performs I could play it. Since they got rid of the + driver model, they are now saying the new 9 degree model will spin 450-500 rpms less than the F8+ which is interesting.

    Woods look great and I am sure they perform - just wish Cobra would follow Srixon and offer legitimate shaft options rather than the water downed junk..




    They use 100% authentic "real-deal" shafts

    Driver looks fine to me. A little too busy, but still better than Taylormade or Ping. LTD still holds as the best looking they've made.

    This particular head is defective or something. The fairway is supposed to look like the driver with the the ridges all the way across the top. If you look at the pictures from other sites, you can see what it's supposed to look like. Would like to get an explanation of why they're all missing on this one.

    Incorrect. Can clearly see that's the regular version. Based on the pictures before the crown pic and the crown pic has the milling of the regular version. The Tour version has different milling that resembles more traditional score lines. Go to "the other site" and you can see that the Tour version also is supposed to have the aero ridges all the way across. I know manufacturers have gotten creative lately with the crown graphics, but they would never release one that looked that confusing and hideous.





    You can see faint marks on the paint where they obviously use to be. It's as if they are glued on and came off, which would be concerning.

    Well I thought TM crapped the bed with the P760's but they've nothing on those F9 irons. Absolutely honking.



    Best of it is the F8s were the cleanest looking (for their target demographic) they'd done in a while.



    So why not change. Wowsers.

    The standard of finish looks shocking. The irons look as if they should be in Walmart.
  • HappyGilmore22HappyGilmore22 Advanced Members Posts: 102 ✭✭
    I thought TM p760 looked bad at first but that was before I saw real pictures and videos. I actually love the p760's now. As for these irons I had a good laugh at first and still think they look terrible. Look like they should be in Kmart selling for under $200.



    The woods look fine though and I don't mind the yellow finish. Would prefer another color like red or blue but I don't have any knocks on the woods other than not liking what they do with the face on the past few drivers. Also would never buy a club that BDB is sponsored by because I do not like the guy as a go lf er.

    Gotta say I am not a fan of the fairway woods, the crown looks haphazardly mashed together...hybrids look good though!




    I thought the exact same thing on the fairway wood crown...it looks unbalanced with the "stripes" only on the toe side of the top.



    There is a lot of tech in the drivers and they look sweet! I'm liking the yellow color-way.

    I'm looking forward to the day when the OEM's understand that putting faux carbon fiber plaques on the backs of irons makes them look cheap, not high-tech or high end. We get it, you're using technology in your designs....leave it at that. Carbon fiber isn't that cutting-edge or state of the art anymore. At this point, they may as well use wood-grained Formica...

    I agree, I see that now. Something really messed up with the club in these pics. Looks nothing like it's supposed to look.

    Makes the drivers look just as bad. Not saying "dragonfly" looks any better. Just leave the crown alone already. The best looking club is the hybrid.

    Whoa. Almost as bad as the BioCell line release. Now, if the driver performs like the BioCell+ Driver, no one will care how bad it looks, they will buy it in droves.
