124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2



Cobra

King F9 Speedback

Our Review:

The problem with an aerodynamic shape is, well, the shape. Sure, it helps the club slide through the air, but it often places too much weight high in the clubhead, resulting in increased ball spin and less distance. Cobra’s design here keeps the smooth edges for aerodynamic efficiency. However, instead of compromising on spin, Cobra stretched its lightweight carbon-composite crown around the edges. Light material on top means more heavy material low and deep, including a 14-gram weight in the sole that can be switched from back to front to lower spin even more.

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper
Looks like a predator. My ball flight had a gradual descent. A soft but strong feel.
Mid-Handicapper
Those little adjustments worked wonders on my low trajectory. When you hit it, everything represented power.
High-Handicapper
Easy to get up in the air without over-spinning it.
