Carlsbad, CA - Cobra continues to shine in golf club innovation and technology with the introduction of the KING F8 and KING F8+ drivers featuring the brand's first ever Precision Milled Forged face for the ultimate in driving performance. The groundbreaking, fully CNC machined driver face paired with revolutionary 360o Aero Technology and equipped with COBRA CONNECT Powered by Arccos, delivers COBRA's fastest, most precise and smartest drivers to date.
"At COBRA Golf our engineers continue to push the envelope when it comes to innovation and delivering the best in game-changing golf equipment for golfers of all levels," said Tom Olsavsky, VP of Research & Development, COBRA Golf. "With the addition of the first CNC Milled titanium driver face for unrivaled precision, weight savings and performance gains, combined with advanced analytics from COBRA CONNECT Powered by Arccos, we believe the F8 and F8+ drivers are truly a step into the future of the game."
COBRA's first fully machined driver face utilizes a unique multi-directional CNC milling pattern that delivers the highest level of precision for superior performance. Compared to traditional hand polished drivers, CNC precision milling allowed COBRA engineers to achieve precise face thickness and tighter tolerances resulting in improved bulge-and-roll curvatures with a face that is 3% thinner and 10% lighter for maximum ball speed across the face with distance and accuracy.
The KING F8 and F8+ drivers (along with COBRA's F8 family of products including fairways, hybrids & irons deliver the first connected set of golf clubs), boast COBRA CONNECT Powered by Arccos, the award winning connected golf system that helps players of all skill levels make smarter, data-driven decisions. Electronically embedded sensors in the grip automatically record the distance and accuracy of every shot so golfers can track their improvements round-to-round. Using the COBRA CONNECT/ Arccos 360 mobile app, users simply pair their club to receive detailed performance data and access rangefinder GPS distances for more than 40,000 courses worldwide.
The KING F8 and F8+ drivers are designed to provide golfers of varying playing abilities a choice between oversized performance with maximum forgiveness or traditional shaping with maximum workability, precision and penetrating ball flights.
The KING F8 driver features an oversized address profile that increases MOI and provides more distance, forgiveness and speed on off-center hits. An adjustable weight system offers two Center of Gravity settings: one in the back for a higher, towering ball flight and one in the heel to provide additional draw bias.
Both the F8 and F8+ drivers will be available at retail on January 12, 2018, with a retail price for each at $399.00.
