Anybody with a whiteboard can design a driver. But manufacturing one—or tens of thousands—to precise weight-saving tolerances that lead to better performance? Well, that’s a new kind of science. Cobra uses automated computer milling to form its titanium face inserts. This saves weight and allows the face to feature subtle curvature for more speed and higher launch on mis-hits. The high-launching F8 and low-spin F8+ have lightweight carbon-composite crowns and movable sole weights (slice-fighting on F8, spin-controlling on F8+). A 3-degree range of adjustability on the hosel means one head fits all.
Loft: F8: Adjustable hosel from 9-12 degrees; F8+: Adjustable hosel from 8-11 degrees.
