What we say...
The Cobra King F7 Driver is the world’s first connect golf club – and is a seriously good driver irrespective of price
Cobra King F7 Driver: Tech
The F7 is the world’s first “connected golf club” say Cobra. A shot tracking sensor in the grip records data for every drive you hit and makes it easy to analyse and share your long game performance across your favourite social media channels.
Elsewhere, three sole weights on the Cobra F7 Driver can be interchanged – which allow you to choose between either a low spin penetrating trajectory, forgiving high flight, or a draw bias.
Cobra King F7 Driver: Our Verdict
At a time when driver prices have sky rocketed Cobra’s King F7 looks like remarkable value for money. All three testers agreed the combination of the squashed wide head and lively Fujikura Pro shaft gave the impression of the F7 being really easy to hit, which is a great place to start when picking a new driver.
The Cobra King F7 Driver basically offers three drivers from a single head which is really clever, and means it can be set up for a wide audience of golfers. The F7 produced one of the longest single shots of the whole test (in the hands of our test pro – 316 yards carry) which proves it’s not all about forgiveness and no slouch when it comes to power. Throw in how the Cobra Connect grip will record every drive you hit and we reckon it’s a fantastic option for 2017.
Cobra King F7 Driver: Bottom line
The Cobra King F7 is a seriously good driver irrespective of price, but throw in how it’s £200 less than a TaylorMade M1 and you see why we’re such big fans of the F7. By tracking each drive you hit you should be able to spot the strengths and weaknesses of your driving which long term will help improve your long game.
