Cobra has unveiled its KING F7 and F7+ drivers, billed as the brand’s “longest and smartest drivers”.

The oversized F7 and more workable F7+ come with Cobra Connect powered by Arccos system, which features an ultralight sensor embedded in the grip, allowing golfers to track distance and accuracy of every drive.

“We are really excited to introduce our longest and smartest drivers with the new F7 and F7+ products,” said Tom Olsavsky, VP of Research & Development, COBRA Golf.

“By incorporating the best zonal weighting technologies, we created the perfect combination of low CG and high MOI to give golfers the best in distance, forgiveness and precision. That, combined with the use of COBRA CONNECT Powered by Arccos, make for some of the most exciting clubs we’ve ever created.”

Cobra KING F7 driver

Larger face and address profile that increases MOI and provides more distance, forgiveness and speed across the face.

An adjustable weight system with three CG settings in the front, the back and heel positions allows for three differing ball flights – low, high and draw, to provide golfers with optimum distance and trajectory for a variety of conditions.

The heavier 12g weight in the front CG position creates a lower, penetrating ball flight with less spin and more roll for maximum distance.

When the heavier weight is placed in the back position, it delivers a higher, towering ball flight with added spin for more carry distance and increased forgiveness. When moved to the heel CG position, it works to reduce spin to deliver straighter drives that correct a slice.

The KING F7 driver also features a re-engineered Forged Ti-811 E9 Face that is lighter, thinner and hotter, creating faster ball speeds and a larger Sweet Zone TM across the face.

A multi-material TeXtreme Carbon Fiber Crown frees up discretionary weight, allowing COBRA engineers to create three distinct CG positions and three performance distances.

MyFly8 with SmartPad technology affords golfers the choice of eight loft settings to fine tune launch conditions and maximise distance while keeping the club head square at address.

“Golfers appetite for data is certainly growing as more and more attention on Tour is paid to player statistics from Shotlink®,” said Olsavsky.

“Creating Smart Clubs by adding the COBRA CONNECT Powered by Arccos technology allows us to satisfy that appetite and provide our consumers with direct access to the type of data that’s used by Tour pros. We believe seeing these insights will help golfers of all skill levels improve their performance and have more fun.”
