Overview of Cobra Golf KING F8 Driver Review

Pros

  • It is specifically designed to cover great distances.
  • It offers brilliant accuracy.
  • The carbon technology is used which lessens the sound.
  • It offers great control over the spinning of the golf ball.
  • Also, it offers an electric monitoring system.
  • It's worth the money you'll spend on it.

Full CNC Milled Driver Face 

This is perhaps the most unique feature of this driver. It comes with a full CNC milled face that makes it super thin, attractive and also offers great precision.

This is the first-ever driver to sport such a kind of face. Moreover, there are three curve angles to choose from. You can go from low to high curve as per your likes.


Forgiveness

The best feature of this driver is, it gives plenty of forgiveness. Even the mishits retain an even speed.

You'll also get a bit of extra spin that means if you don't consider yourself a good golfer or if you're still in your learning phase, this is gonna be a great pick for you.


360-Degree Aerodynamic Tips

Cobra King has a super-efficient aerodynamic design from each angle. You'll get the aerodynamic tips on the sole as well as the crown. Further, the toe area of the driver is designed to lower the drag.

Another advantage of efficient aerodynamics is that you get enhanced speed without paying anything extra.


Super Light Carbon Fibre Crown

Carbon fiber is known for its lightweight nature and strength. It is considered to be the hottest materials for drivers and irons. Thankfully, Cobra F8's crown is made from the same lightweight material which increases its efficiency, usability, strength and forgiveness altogether.


Shot Tracking Sensors

Cobra Kind F8 series is definitely future-oriented. It comes with a shot tracking sensor by Arccos. It is located on the grip and is connected to your smartphone via a mobile app.

It tracks and records each shot and distance for you. This is a great tool for measuring your performance and improving the shots based on the collected data.


Adjustability

The F8 and F8+ drivers come with two sole weights including one 12 gram and one 2 gram weight which can be shuffled when needed.

When you place 12-gram sole weight at the back, there will be higher spin and with 2 gram weight at the back, you will experience a draw-biased club. In addition to it, there is an adjustable loft at the bottom that makes sure the head sits properly.

Now the most important part, the performance of King F8 Driver. Since I'm not a pro golfer, the forgiveness of this driver attracted me the most. I was able to hit straight and longer, all thanks to its solid club.

I was able to swing it with great precision, not every single time but most of the time. Not to forget, the CNC milled face worked topnotch the whole time, it offered an excellent ball speed which made the game more enjoyable and fun.

Further, there are two ways of modifying the ball flight. There are two sole weights: 12 and 3 gram respectively. By switching between these two weights, you can adjust the ball flight according to your preferences. Moreover, the hosel allows you to adjust the loft for the desired spin and launch.

Out of all the Cobra KING F8 features, the shot tracking sensor is my most favorite one. It is situated on the grip and allows you to track your shots and distances which in turn presents a great opportunity for improving your game and performance.


Cobra Golf KING F8 Driver - Looks And Aesthetics

As I already mentioned at the beginning of this post, the footprint of Cobra KING F8 is quite large as compared to the other drivers. So, if you don't prefer larger footprints, go for F8+ because it has a tall face and small footprint.

Now starting from the crown of F8 driver, it is simply very attractive. The head is made from high-grade carbon fiber in black color and has grey colored strips that feature some crown trips made from polymer.

These trips are a part of the aerodynamic design of the driver that makes it fast, long and better. Although there are a lot of things going on at the head, the back and grey combination balance outs it pretty well.


Cobra Golf KING F8 Driver: Sound And Feel

When the driver hits the ball, it produces a hot and explosive "clink" sound. This loud metallic sound gives a great feel. You'll have great precision and control over your swing.

The sound also gives a sense of confidence for the below-average players and they try better shots each time due to the same reason. Moreover, the sounds also vary from good to poor shots. With a little experience, you'll be able to track your performance by the sound itself.

Another surprising fact about the F8 driver is, it has excellent feedback despite its large clubhead.

 

Final Words

So, this is my Cobra Golf King F8 Driver review.

This driver has pretty much of everything a golfer looks for. The best part is, it is a forgiving driver that offers decent adjustability.

The presence of sensors makes it shine among the rest of modern drivers. Using this feature, you can track and improve your performance. Overall, if you don't mind the larger sized footprint, you can check out this driver without having second thoughts.
