    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.




    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.

    I think there is a standard speedback and a speedback tour. The tour version is this picture.

    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.

    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.

    I mean W/S put a carbon fiber chip in the back of the Pi-5's about a decade or more ago. Harrington did have them in his bag for at least 1 if not more of his 3 major wins so maybe there's something to it!

    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.



    Cobra seems to have two distinct design teams that are constantly battling for supremacy. The butt-ugly team won this round.

    i'm not sure what would please you folks, but this new driver looks badass!! It looks fast. The F8+ is almost a masterpiece and this F9 might be a touch better. Throw an old school WB 73x in it and be done!!!

    Best part of the cobra clubs is their headcovers to hide those ugly heads.

    I know carbon fiber is very strong and lighter than steel broke. Weave fibre



    It's not cheap. Use crown top on head driver.

    Looking forward to comparing the driver to my F8+ (even though I don't really care for the looks).



    Cobra delivered on their promises with the LTD and F8 lines, so I will be very interested to see if all of the aerodynamic features they built into the F9 make a noticeable difference.

    Disagree that the bio cell looking bad. Yea, the bio cell+ was different (still one of my favorite drivers), but then when TM did the mixed crown with the M1 and M2 many raved about how great a looking club it was.
