With the right shaft I'm sure it would perform as good as what I have...still would never buy it...

Cobra makes good drivers but this thing looks like PlaySkool or Fisher Price made it. No offense to people who like that kind of thing.

I have one coming to try......

It's so fing cold it will be months before I get to try it.

Probably wouldn't have bought one if I wasn't relegated to on line golf forums for my golf fix.

Hit a few balls indoor with it on flightscope today. Head and shaft combo definitely not a fit for me (too high loft, reg Atmos blue), but I just wanted to try it. Literally walked into the store from outside around 0°C and hit like 5 balls with it. So no warm up. Didn't hit a single one out of the center and swing felt like shit. Low heel, high toe. You name it. Was super impressed with dispersion though. If I put that kind of swing with my own driver, it will be going 40 yards offline😂. But not with the Cobra. Everything kinda holds it's line pretty well. I don't think they will be any longer than my current setup but more accurate. I think that is what the new drivers are all about. Not longer but straighter. Will be testing it some more once the weather allows for it.

Today I tried the F9 9.0. Very limited on shaft choice unfortunately. Had the Hzrdus Smoke 60g stiff. After warming up with mine I then tried then tried the F9, which we had to loft down to 7.5 as my launch was waaaay to high. I immediately noticed how much heavier (D7) my driver was, and this equated to more ball speed for the F9 as I swung it a little faster. The F9 also had more distance and very slightly better dispersion too. It didn't feel as good or sound as good as mine though.
I then asked to try a 3w (70g) version of the smoke shaft and to bring the swing weight back I suggested he put another heavy weight in the head, so that was two 16g weights. Holy shit was the dispersion good. I've never been so tight (*). This made the head 'feel' softer because I was hitting the middle more and it was also slightly quieter, more of a thud at impact. The pro suggested that we take this head and shaft combo out on to the course next week to see if I can match the indoor LM  numbers in the real world.
I might be getting an F9...... 😈
