Thanks for the pics! ;) That is one very deeeeep face! Nice looking driver and definitely worth a test run in the future.

 

 

Very deep and very nice looking,... even though this is 1.5* closed, it didn't look very closed at all... It will be interesting to see the X version, which is going to be 0.5* open...

this driver is terrible, i hit the driver this afternoon, hook machine. the stock shafts are garbage and the scallops are much deeper than they look. this thing is loud as hell to, it sounded like a major leauge pitcher throwing fastballs at a metal trashcan. very disappointed with driver and the fairway head is worse. the fairway head looks as if the depth of the head is two inches longer than the face is wide (picture narrow nike sq driver. But get this guys, talked to the rep today and he said 585h and 906f hit mid july start saving.

Did it look better than the Speed series? The speed series had an ugly shape that made it look closed, even though it wasn't.

 

 

YES!! A lot better... even though this driver is draw bias (both closed face AND interlally weighted) it doesn't look nearly as closed as the Speed series... Actually, this is a pretty good looking club... we'll see with the X-HS9...

Also didn't Cobra already have a composite top driver before the speed series?

 

Yes, Cobra Comps have been around for a while, but this driver looks like it has a composite bottom in areas too.

 

 

My biggest complaint about Cobra is their drivers are too muted. I mean, I can barely hear that I'm hitting it. When will they solve that problem? ;) :crazy2:

The pics are of an F speed.. they´re still using the Speed system. Why don´t you like it, I think it´s very clever.

I wonder about the open x speed face, although I hate the closed look like many, a huge faced driver like this will have the center very far away from the shaft and produce huge amounts of tourqe, especially when swung hard.. and this will open the face.

Did you by any chance get what´s written on the toe, they usually have some info one there don´t they(MOI or something)??

 

ahhhh... nice catch... I really didn't pay attention to that detail... my bad...

 

maybe it's just the angle of the pic, but good golly does that face look closed!!!!

 

As for the looks..... ;)

 

it is 1.5* closed, but is not AS CLOSED as the Speed series... and it really doesn't look very closed at address...

Cut and paste much. I think you've posted this same blurb on three different threads. The scallops are much deeper than they look---is that like the X-Tour top line is thicker than it looks----thought that was the IDEA.

the scallops thing is because many hate the scallops on the head and i posted that meaning in the pictures posted the scallops dont look as deep as they actually are when you hit the thing. It sounds as if your in love with that peice of garbage. M speed 10.5 Regular perhaps?

 

Did you mean piece of garbage?? I (not i) don't know what a peice is. I actually use 14.5 loft in offset with 5 degrees closed face and a senior ladies flex. Here's a couple of drivers I found on my racks---non carbon top you'll note so no garbage. Think how long the Pinnacle team could drive the ball if they weren't burdened with these peices of garbage.

 

I still can hardly wait for that latest loser Titleist fairway wood (hope that is carbon on the bottom) Have you tried one yet (oh well, at least one of us has)?

Thanks to Martineli69 for the pics and Sandy for the review. I know I'll have to try one of the new Cobra's, every time I see a Speed series (and now this HS9) I'm drawn to the massive face and it gives the impression that no matter how hard and out of control I swing, I'll still be able to catch it on the sweetspot. I want one with a 50 inch long drive shaft just because ;) .

Hope Sandy is around to reply to this ! ;)

 

The F and M are scheduled for June 1, but the Xs aren't going to be available until mid July. There will be no XX versions so I guess the LDA guys are sticking with the XXs or 450SZ Tours.

 

Thanks Sandy, this is bad news as I am going to be in the States last 2 weeks of June and would loved to have picked up an X... are you sure mid July is right ???

 

Confused about the lofts, will 8.5 be the lowest available on the X?

Lowest loft in the X HS9 will be 9 degrees. As the picture indicated they tested an 8 but right now 9 is the lowest. F and M available June 1, but the X in July right now.
