Cobra has unveiled its new KING F6 range, consisting of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons.

The brand believes its latest family of clubs will appeal to more golfers than the recently-launched KING LTD line as KING F6 boasts more adjustability, allowing players to "play the best for how you play".

TESTED: Cobra KING LTD driver review

KING F6+ driver


Loaded with fresh new technology, the KING F6+ is the headliner in the range.

Cobra says the F6+ driver represents its longest and most adjustable driver ever thanks to a five-position sliding weight on the sole. 

New Carbontrac technology replaces the titanium track, needed to house the sliding weight system. The lighter system saves eight grams, and allows for an 18 gram moveable weight to be positioned in the new device. 

"No other Cobra adjustable CG driver delivers this combination of low CG, distance, tune-ability and forgiveness," said Cobra.

Key features:

Multi-material construction with next generation TOP technology - Thin Optimised Personalised (TOP) technology with 8-1-1 titanium body and carbon fiber crown maximises moveable weight for CG positioning. Allows positioning of weight low and deep for distance and forgiveness. 
Forged 8-1-1 Titanium E9 Zone Face Structure - new, re-engineered forged E9 face is variable thickness. Lighter, thinner, and hotter for distance and forgiveness.
Speed Channel Face - perimeter channel minimises thickness to increase speeds across the face.
MyFly8 technology with Smartpad - Eight adjustable loft settings. Designed to angle of attack is not changed when manipulated.

KING F6 driver


The standard F6 driver does without the sliding track featured in the F6+, but shares much of the new technology seen in its sibling.

Billed as Cobra's longest and most forgiving adjustable driver, the F6 employs a simple front or back CG adjustability, allowing players to tweak loft and spin for maximum distance. 

A 10 gram moveable weight can be placed in two positions on the sole of the club, thanks to Front or Back Adjustable CG Technology.

While the front position provides a penetrating ball flight, the back CG position promotes a high-launching shot, offering more forgiveness.

Key features:

Forged 8-1-1 Titanium E9 Zone Face Structure -
Re-engineered forged E9 Face is variable thickness. Lighter, thinner and hotter for more distance and larger sweet spot.
New 8-1-1 titanium construction - New, lightweight 8-1-1 titanium body and crown design saves weight from entire club head, allowing two moveable front and back CG positions.
Speed Channel Face - channel around perimeter of face minimises thickness for more distance.

KING F6 iron


The new KING F6 irons optmise performance in each club through a progressive set.

Multiple advanced construction techniques are incorporated throughout the set to create more feel, distance, control, precision and forgiveness.

FIRST LOOK: Cobra launches KING forged irons

Tecflo construction places a full hollow design with face insert in long irons (3-5), delivering a low CG for forgiveness. Half hollow design used in mid irons (6-7) promotes thin face design and optimised CG position for forgiveness and precision. Cavity back design used in scoring irons (8-PW) for low/back CG, promoting spin and control, while speciality wedge design in GW-SW for extra versatility and shot control.  

Key features: 

Progressive spin technology - optimised spin and launch conditions for every club thanks to V-grooves on 4-6 irons, U-grooves on 7-PW, and Wedge spaced grooves on GW-SW. V-grooves reduce spin from long irons for distance and consistency, U-grooves optimise spin for precision and Wedge spaced grooves provide extra spin for control.
CNC Milled grooves - Computer Numerical Control is a machining process maximising draft angles and edge radii. Creates more spin and optimised trajectory for more workability and control.
Deep perimeter undercutting - deep undercut creates largest unsupported face ever for Cobra set of irons, creating forgiveness on off-centre hits. 
Speed channel sole and face - channel on the sole and around the perimeter flexes at impact for more distance.
Premium chrome plating with PVD - New nickel chrome PVD plating provides enhanced club durability throughout the set, and aesthetic edge.
TOP Technology - aluminium cap replaces steel on half hollow irons, freeing up five grams of weight, now placed low and further back in the head. Lower CG for more forgiveness. 

Price: seven piece, £499 (steel) £599 (graphite).
