  • Build Your Cobra KING F9 SpeedBack FW Woods

    The 2019 Morgan Cup is in just 90 days and participants get a full bag of equipment from Cobra Golf as part of the THP Event. This year we are tasking them with piecing it together in waves, for two reasons.



    1. Not to become overwhelmed with the awesomeness.
    2. To bring the entire community of THPers along for the ride with the decisions they make.

    So here is the drill. They can choose any Cobra FW Wood(s) and here are the other options offered. Just like Tour Players, there are decisions to be made and in this case, they have a plethora of shaft options available as well as some grip options and every participant will be using Cobra Connect for stats.

    Club Head(s)
    King F9 SpeedBack FW
    KING FMax SuperLite

    Shaft Choices
    UST Mamiya Helium 4, 5
    Fujikura Atmos Tour Spec Blue 6

      Man I still don't know about the shaft situation... but I'm pretty certain I'm going F9 SpeedBack Tour Issue 3-4 with Atmos Blue and UTx grip. Without seeing any of the equipment in hand its a bit tough to decide but having played the F8 3-4 last year I'm pretty sure I want to go with the smaller head of the Tour Issue. The 5-6 or even 7-8 could also be on the table to the fact that I want to avoid the hybrid (I THINK) this year. I only used my hybrid 14 times all of last year, I just never felt comfortable with it so I may want to go a different direction.

        F9 Speed Back 5 wood, -1 degree.
        ProjectX HZRDUS Smoke
        Lamkin UTx

        I love lowering the loft on a 5 wood shaft length for better play off the deck while still getting good distance off the tee. I've had really good luck with Project X shafts in woods (my XR still has a LZ Handcrafted) so I'd stick with them. And UTx remains the best grip on the market, IMO.

          This might actually make the driver selection easier for me. I like to match.

          Probably going Speedback tour head 3-4 with the Smoke (assuming it's the 75g) in 6.5 flex. UTx black for sure.

              As it stands right now, I think I go with Speedback:

              3-4 fw
              4-5 tour fw

              Both with Hzrdus Smoke, 6.0, UTx black grip

                      Great way to start the new year with another Build Your Own MC club thread! I currently only carry 1 FW, but Im leaning heavily toward moving to 2 for the MC bag. Would be looking to go with the Speedback 3-4 and 5-6 FW heads, and a mid/mid shaft to go with it (depends on driver shaft selection, based on my OCD I like to have those match). F9 midsize grip, and would match the color with shaft (based on available options it will most likely be blue).

                        I want to hit them more before making my final determination but I'm definitely going with two fairway woods, a 3-4 and a 5-6. Right now my 5 wood is my go to club off the tee if I'm struggling with driver and my 3 wood is rarely used. I want to set these up as a 4 wood / 6 wood combo to see if I can get a little more distance off the tee and have an even more forgiving wood off the fairway. I have had success with the Tensei blue shafts in my current fairways but I may go with the helium shaft so they match up with the driver.

                          Nice! Just to confirm...is the Tour version of the F9 Speedback an option? I don't see it specifically mentioned in JB's post, but wanted to make sure.

                          Is it weird that I'm even more excited about the fairway wood than the driver? Extremely pumped about the F9 3-4 fw - the extra distance compared to my current setup would be huge both off the tee and on previously unreachable par 5's. Would definitely like a more penetrating ball flight, so will be interested to see what shaft the fitting recommends for me. Plus, if I can get a long-hitting hybrid to bridge the gap between this club and my 4i, I can finally put that 3rd wedge in the bag.
