    Thanks fellas! Yeah I’m stoked, hit the wallet hard but darn they are **** whips. I’m amazed at how both dark almost charcoal grey’ish black finishes and color matched up. Of course doesn’t mean a hill of turds if I can’t hit them. I’m gonna use these **** in Cobra Connects and see if this tracking program is any good.

    I don't understand why for graphite, recoil 780 ES w smacwrap isn't a standard option with the CB/MB like it is with the forged tec blacks..... unless you can get the recoil 95 or 110 in the same matte black finish.... aesthetically they just couldn't be a better match. maybe they figured the 780ES was too light for someone who has the skill to game CB/MB?

    It's definitely a little busy on top, but so is the G400....and looks what's in my bag...

    I'll always have a soft spot for Cobra from my first premium driver being the 427. That thing was a cannon back in the day!

    Cobra 427 was such a great driver, it was overshadowed by some of it's contemporaries like the Titleist 983. I actually still have mine in the garage somewhere, I put an Aldila NV65 in it when that was the new "hot" shaft and used that setup for years. Cobra makes some good equipment and it's great to see them releasing stuff that people are excited about!

    If the F9 driver replicates the sound and feel of the LTD but with lower spin, better speed and high MOI, it will be an absolute killer.

    Gamed ltd pro since release. That’s asking a bit much dude! For how forgiving it is especially low on the face, asking for more is basically illegal driver.



    If you’ve got a low/mid launch low spin premium shaft and need the Ltd pro to spin even less...I just don’t even know lol

    Agree with that. Sound, shape and feel are great on LTD. Its still in my bag.



    As much as I detest the top of the F9 I will learn to love it if it can do all those things you mention.

    Well, technically, being a killer is illegal so I guess it's true!



    Seriously though the LTD was a very good all around driver. Maybe if I went back to it now after a couple years with different shafts I've come to try it would make it stand out for me more.



    Also if he LTD had a little bit of adjustability for flight bias. My LTD pro has such a fight lie and my best strikes were cuts that, at my speed, would turn into hard cuts and I'd lose right.

    New review/test on the F9. Is it faster than F8+?? In this not so scientific test Apparently it is. Good video. This guy can swing.

    While that swing isn’t near 125-129, more like 118-120, the F9 does show promise.

    Why do people find it so impossible to believe there actually are many people out there that can flirt with 130 mph?



    You think your eye can tell by watching a video that Alex isn’t swinging high 120’s? That’s just ridiculous.



    No one would ever imagine Champ swings 130 without measuring equipment.

    Oh I know there are. He, however, isn’t one of them.



    Can I tell by eye? Somewhat, because I see it everyday first-hand. Can I tell by his 174-176 ballspeed? Absolutely.

    He's basing his numbers off of an About golf Sim. I play on them pretty regularly in the winter time. While I find the carry numbers can be close, the spin and swing speed numbers are usually waaaay off. While I can't guess his see speed by just watching the video, I wouldn't be shocked to see that the Sim was reporting too high. Just looking at his ball speeds make me think the swing speed is reporting too high.

    Ha, I was just typing that point out image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I think the AboutGolf sim is accurate in measuring ball speed, swing speed not so much.
