    My main question is why did they do that? Looks? Any function at all? Odd

    Probably a structural move, moving the face weld back from the impact zone as far as possible should let them have a stronger construction with lighter crown. I'm sure we'll get the details from someone soon. Looks great otherwise!

    If it sits as square as has been reported Cobra hit a home here. Can't wait to see the FW's.

    Will have to for sure give this a whirl. I'm most interested in no longer getting paint chips when I catch one high lol.

    If it's better than the F9 I will have to give it a try. Really interested in seeing what the matte finish looks like.

    Several Youtube reviewers have started releasing semi reviews today. One such is Alex Etches -- he's hilarious. Seems there is an embargo on giving actual numbers until 2020, but they are allowed to give impressions on the course.

    Seems better than the F9 around the center of the face. I'm really looking forward to getting this into my hands.

    Isn't it just the same 'cup face' tech that has been around for a long time? I do think it looks awesome milled though. I'm curious to see how the hold up, or if we see a lot of heads getting separations and cracks.

    Are you kidding, I have been saying (after low-balling and hitting it on the edge of the crown) that I wish they'd have some protective layer here..... and now they have!! Brilliant!

    Huh, interesting! I kinda like that the extended topline sort of gives the impression/feeling that you're hitting up against something super solid, like just a big slab of face, hah. If this sounds and feels good then I can imagine that being a big win for them purely in the psychological department.

    Really dislike the look of this but from what I've seen of a possible white/black/red with matte crowne I think that could look really good. Would certainly test a version like that against my TM.

    I really like the look of the driver and the colors, reminds me of Formula 1 cars from the 70s. I have the F9 and wont be upgrading to gain 1 yard, but players that produce a lot of skymarks should be all over this driver. I have never had a skymark on a driver so far, happened once on my beloved TEE fairway though, was really wet condition and the rough was even softer than I thought so slid right under the ball. Had to sell the club after that.....

    Definitely the best-looking Cobra driver to my eye. The extended milling is a great idea. The F9 fairways are tremendous — feel and sound is spectacular — and I am glad they did not change it too much. Every time I hit my F9. 3 wood my playing partners talk about how great it sounds. I could easily go all-Cobra for driver and fairways and I never would have imagined that. They just work so well.

    Very disappointed to see that there is not a fade option on the shaft ferrule or head/toe weights again. Without ferrule or movable weight option, this puts the club at a severe disadvantage to those (G410, T3...) who are catering to those who prefer a fade flight....

    Assuming they keep the same strategy as the F9, the 9* head will have a flatter standard lie angle than the 10.5* head. So the 9* head in the neutral setting would be fade biased.

    Anyone know what's the story with the matte Speedzone driver head? NVM it looks like the white is matte and yellow appears gloss. i think

    This has put me in a bit of a bind. Not sure if I should just go ahead and pick up the F8 I have on laybuy, "upgrade" to the F9 which is on sale, or again, cop the F8 then sell it later on for the Speedzone.
