All A Golfer Should Know About Cobra King F8 Drivers and Fairway Woods
In this article, we are going to take a look at one of the leading equipment companies – Cobra Golf - and the King F8 line of drivers and woods. The company was founded in 1973, and the creator of this brand was a winner of the 1961 Australian amateur golf championship – Thomas Crow. Cobra became a worldwide golf sensation thanks to producing one of the first utility clubs, the Baffler. Today, Cobra Golf is a subsidiary of another famous company, Puma, and still popular and widely known for the excellent quality of their products.
Why do golf club choices matter so much?
Being a successful golfer takes practice, dedication, and patience. All these elements are vital if you want to maximize your potential and minimize your handicap. However, good strategy and skills are not the only things that matter on the course. Smart equipment choices, and the selection of the best golf clubs for your game, can make a huge difference.
A standard starter set usually contains 9 or 10 clubs, but the rules of golf allows a player to use 14. So as a player, you have a great deal of choice and total flexibility in terms of how you fill your bag. Your choices can be influenced by a whole range of factors including trajectory, accuracy, distance, player’s technique, etc. If you can make the right choices, a club will compliment your style of game and help make you more accurate. In fact the clubs that require the most thought for a serious player are the driver, putter and wedges.
Clubs created by the world’s leading manufacturers of golf equipment usually have a better build and construction that contribute to better feel, distance, and overall performance. So if you're a serious player, upgrading your equipment may be a wise investment. And the Cobra King F8 line is a great place to look if you want to play very good equipment at a reasonable price point.
All A Golfer Should Know About Cobra King F8 Clubs
In general, the price tag for Cobra clubs are fairly reasonable. Since the F8 series is from 2018, the prices for the F8 lineup can be as low as $129 for 2018 Cobra Golf Men's King F8 One Length Hybrid to less than $220 for a Cobra 2018 Golf Men's King F8+ Driver. For such high quality equipment these are terrific, affordable options.
Drivers in the F8 line are CNC milled to create the thinnest, hottest, and most precise faces that Cobra has ever introduced. Fairway woods and hybrids are forged stainless steel for increased ball speeds and distance across all points of the face.
The F8 line all employ a 5-ply carbon fiber crown, which is lighter (more speed!) and moves the CG lower and deeper, producing higher trajectories and increased forgiveness.
Cobra's lightweight polymer aero trips (10% lighter than Titanium) positioned around the perimeter of the club heads reduce drag and face rotation which maximizes speed and improves accuracy.
Smart & Adjustable
The fairway woods and drivers offer easily adjustable loft settings to help you fine tune launch conditions and fit the club to your personal specifications
Cobra’s F8 line even includes options for junior golfers including the Cobra 2018 Golf Junior King F8 Driver. They also have a full set of Cobra junior clubs that is a great starter set for junior golfers. See Cobra King Junior Set
Fairways & Hybrids
As always, the fairway woods and hybrids in the F8 line include the Baffler dual rail system that made Cobra a household name in the golf industry. The Baffler technology provides improved versatility and forgiveness from any lie.
One thing to learn here about equipment is that you can buy a past generation of club (the Cobra King F9 line is out now) and take advantage of great technology at a much lower price point. So look around and see if you can find a King F8 that fits your game, it will be money well spent!
