The Verdict: 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.
Street Price: $400

Player Comments
  • low-Handicapper
    I like the muted sound. The misses were really consistent.
  • mid-Handicapper
    Soft and responsive: I hit a lot of medium to medium-high straight balls, not the easiest thing to pull off.
  • high-Handicapper
    The face milling definitely will make the average golfer want to try it.
