    Yes I'd like to try 10/10. I remember the Mizuno jpx900 was a beast in the one config not detailed in the little booklet (one in the draw, on in the fade)

    I figure I'll throw my review up, since I finally hit mine for the first time after staring at it sitting in the corner for over well over a month. I was able to get on a GC2 at golftec a few days ago... **Caution** I hadn't hit a ball since early January, Haha.... I warmed up with irons and was making decent contact and seeing pretty good distance and spin numbers. once I got about 50 swings in I broke out the drivers and all **** broke loose--



    I brought my G400 LST 8.5* with HC HZrdus Yellow- playing 45" to compare with my F9 Pro Orange 60 TX - playing 45"



    Headweight G400- 202g, F9 206g with 14/10 weights



    My first 30 swings (alternating every 5-10 shots between drivers) were hot garbage. Everything was a 230-270 yd pull hook. I contemplated giving up at that point, but I'm old and stubborn, so I didn't quit- I just kept hitting crappy shots. Finally, after I had hit 100 balls total, I somewhat found my swing. After finding a moderately decent swing I hit about 10 balls with the LST and 20 balls with the F9. I was not bringing any heat, unfortunately. A combination of being tired and not having a grooved swing. Good shots were in the 150-155 mph ballspeed realm. I feel like I'm more 160ish when I'm in golfing shape. General findings:



    f9 was a good 3 mph faster than g400 LST in ball speed on average. Spin numbers were a touch lower with LST 2200-2500 when I had the 10g front and 14g back in the f9 (2400-2800). When I went heavier weight forward in f9 I was seeing around same spin numbers as the LST. Both were very straight when I finally got my act together. Good for good, the f9 was probably about 5 yds longer overall (when in heavy weight forward position). f9 had the three longest drives of day- 284-287- total distance. Most of my good drives seemed to be in the 250-260ish carry distance.



    There was a lot of variance in my swing, so I'm sure that is accounting for a lot of stuff. However, the biggest takeaway I have from the first time out and comparison is that the cobra was consistently faster than the LST. In addition, It just sounds and feels so much better than any other driver out there today, imo. It's very enjoyable to hit. I would probably choose it regardless even if I got better numbers with LST or epic flash (when I hit it). I got around same numbers when I hit Flash a few months ago, but the Flash sounded like an angry bear smashing a steel trash can into the ground- extremely obnoxious, especially in an indoor setting. It's the same reason I didn't like the ping g30/G line of drivers.



    I'm anxious to test again when my swing is more grooved/in shape....

    Bummer, apparently LTD is like a unicorn and has a semi cult following here. I hopped on the band wagon and I'm not sold on it yet. For a guy like me that's still not consistent with my driver swing and a sometimes too wide in to out path, a very fade biased driver is a danger to any human on a fairway to my left.



    Guys tell me to give regular LTD a shot which sits a bit more upright.... But I'd have to loft down and the site of an open face makes me pretty handsie.



    Hit 9* F9 in store and really liked it. Spun like a top but I attribute that to the 50g R flex that the guy gave me. Apparently I look like 60 year old man. Straightest drives I've seen myself hit on a sim.
    lol yea i know wrx'ers love the LTD Pro...



    the F9 with std weight setup did spin a lot for me in-store -- however, with the 18g up front and a shaft switch -- it was good to go. the problem (at face value) with the F9 is the head is very very light (mentioned here a bit). however, once you figure the weights/shaft figured out - the spin drops. i'm down with my rogue 130 white to 2100-2300 rpms...


    Yeah I had the weight back 50R Indiana Jones whip shaft set up, so that's to be expected. I'm feeling a lot more confident with a shorter driver these days anyway, so I'd go after market weights regardless. I'd rather get a lighter head and fill it with weight than to have something already at the max end of weight as is.



    LTD felt like Thor's hammer when I mistakenly played it at stock 45.5''. X flex was playing like senior flex it seemed.




    I traded in my LTD pro for my F9 and I'm pleasantly surprised by this.



    I play a 44" driver shaft, so when the weights arrive that will be much better I think.



    F9 just sounds so good, I really really like the flight and the numbers with my Kuro Kage DC XT

    Checking in on this thread (along with some beautiful South FL weather) inspired me to put in a range session with my F9 Atmos Black 6x. I had been feeling a bit out of whack with my driver swing so worked on a more vertical wrist hinge and upright shaft orientation half way back, with an exaggerated shallowing move in transition. I'm also not one to typically mess much with driver settings, but figured I'd give it a shot.



    Anyway, the setting that produced the best ball flights was +1D (draw). This was very odd as my irons are always 2 flat and I prefer flatter fairways and hybrids as well. Anyway, I was really moving out out there and it felt awesome. My predominant shot shape is a draw and I hate hooks, but this setting was working great today.



    I'm playing tomorrow and will try the F9 on course again in this new setting and report back.

    Lol love that last paragraph and reminded me of my G30ls...Loved that thing but sound and feel eventually made me move on but was a great driver imo. Loving the F9 but it took me two head and two shafts and loft adjustments to finally get it to where it is truly "King". Can't see this moving out of the bag for several years, **** I may even buy a white head just to have a back up to look at something different... For those still dialing in just trying to provide some hope as it took me nearly 6 weeks, 15 buckets of balls, but finally found the perfect set up...now just to stop tinkering as I'm pretty much maxed out with perfect ball flight and spin. Best of luck to those still searching...

    Would that be via text ? Wouldn't think so. And, if not, I'm one of those guys who has very limited internet access on my phone plan so the "data mode" is not on as a routine thing. I only turn it on when I need it for something.



    I turned on my notification for "deals and such" to get them via email - that should work (I think).

    I put the 3 wood in play yesterday. What a hammer, and the feel is grear. Standard head all standard settings. Have not tweaked. At 14.5 degrees got plenty of height off the deck and it goes long and straight. The rails make this club so easy. I hit one out of the rough, which I avoid with a 3 wood, and it made no difference. First Cobra FW I ever have gamed. I am impressed. Already thinking about the 5 wood.



    I know guys aleays like the Tour heads, but the standard does not look large at all behind the ball. Like the shape and look from address. Launches easy off turf, real easy. Easy to work too. Strong competitor with any other top fairway wood. I had pretty much ended playing 3 woods off turf but the F9 3 wood is changing that.

    I just got my 10g weight and almost thought about putting it in but the head was 200g with the 14 and 2 at d6.5 can't imagine if I threw the 10 and 14 in I would be at e sw range. What length are you playing the driver at?

    Man!!! The golf gods must hate me. Ordered tour length driver and fairway 2/22. Was told 3/24 ship. Last week was told 3/27. Today I am told 3/31.



    Ordered them both with pro orange. So if anyone else is waiting on the pro orange there are 5 of us waiting per Cobra rep. Sucks,watching this thread and seeing everyone love there’s,and I’m over here in the corner waiting. Means once Cobra gets the shafts it will be 3 days for them to quality control them,then another 3-5 days to build and ship. So maybe(fingers crossed) Masters time I’ll have them. Just wanted to pass info along if anyone is wanting or waiting.

    I was tinkering with lead tape and found that the 2g plastic weight has some gaps in the bottom. I just bought some tungsten putty and will try filling some of the little gaps in the bottom of the weight to get sw higher. $8 on amazon instead of a $25 weight from cobra. will see how it goes.

    FYI I packed all the space behind the stock 2g weight with the tungsten putty that I got and it ended up making it juuuuuuust to 8g. depending on where on my scale it was it was showing 7g and 8g. I reckon I could Dremel out the plastic spacers in the back of the "weight" too, to pack another gram or 2 worth of putty in there. A good alternative to buying a weight if you only need somewhere between 2 g and 10g for the total weight.

    This driver is really making me mad. Normally by now I would have put the Seinfeld girlfriend treatment on it and found something I didn't like. I want to ho another driver so bad. I just can't. I do not see anything that is going to do what its doing for me. I guess I just need to be patient. The G410 LS is coming in June. That's like 20 years in my driver timeframe though. Oh well. I guess I'll just have to ho some irons or putters.

    Anyone else see this video? This guy seems to side with Crossfield. With toe strikes both guys saw massive loss of distance. I haven’t done extensive testing with mine cause of weather. Normally my miss is off the toe. Which means it’s going hard left. I hit my F9 on a sim and outdoors but hard to see ball flight outside when ground/sky/ball are all the same color. I know when I nut one it feels good.

    my strike pattern is slightly off center high toe. Imagine the milled face (circle milled pattern). My strike is within the circle but touches the outer ring and I find tons of ball speed and performance in this area. I hear others brag about the low strike but unfortunately I can't comment as neither this or low heel is something I hit hardly ever. Hope this helps. If you're way out on the toe then yeah I'd say find a deeper larger faced driver but missing by an inch from center is not good with any driver I'm assuming.

    When a real deal shaft comes from an oem it's aftermarket value tanks a bit. Even thought they are real deal they maybe only net $100 total. If you know you are going to use something different sometimes it's not worth the hassle to sell the stock shaft. I bought the whole club just because I wanted to try the shaft. Hit maybe 25 balls total with stock shaft and it's already been replaced

    Are the f9 hybrids or fairways a noticable upgrade from the f8 or f7?

    Hence why online reviews are for entertainment purposes only.



    For me, the entire reason I went with the F9 in place of anything else including my old gamer was the lack of distance loss off toe hits. My toe hits go the distance as centered hits with most other clubs.



    As always, there are no absolutes in golf equipment results when applied to individual golfers.

    went to the sim this morning, was not the best, got a bay they had not replaced the mat in a while, nice depression, not ideal.



    I did have some good strikes with the Tour 3w, but this really needs hit outside, need to see how the rails interact with turf for me. Feel and sound are excellent.



    I can't wait to get the driver out on course, no way it is this straight. We should get to play actual golf this weekend, will give the driver and 3w the starting spot, see if they can stay over callaway.

    Continuing my on course head to head with F9 vs the G400Max. So far the G4M is still in the lead. It’s just a tad longer (for me and my swing) and forgiving so far. Taking them out next weekend for another head to head and see how the dust settles. As much as I want the F9 to win as I love the feel and sound vs the max....i just see the Ping edging the f9 at the finish line.
  • wobgonwobgon Advanced Members Posts: 7,435 ✭✭
    Tried and tried with multiple demos and shafts...…...Can't see how the f9 could beat out the m5 for anyone...…...I guess that's why there are a bunch of manufacturers to fit all different players.
