    Glad they kept the SmartPad technology. Also, I'm really liking the look of the fairways.

    Gotcha. Yeah, the three weight movements that they had in the previous line has been removed for the launch high or low side of things.

    This is really nice. I wouldn't usually look twice at a Cobra wood but I think it looks great and if a golf club has "it" this one does. I think the design and use of graphics is perfect. They need to not go crazy and launch this thing in multiple colors. If they do do a color every other month or so to keep the mystery and excitement going.

    This club line looks fast and mean and its amazing what they have been able to hide! Really like the satin black/avalanche scheme better, but the yellow isn't a terrible shade or overdone. Hoping they have Nardo coming back in some capacity later. Love the stock shaft pairings being offered as well.

    Also, those fairways look freaking sweet. Going to for sure try out those.

    If only Cobra would get the respect their clubs should have the opportunity to get.

    Def not a fan of the yellow.....but the white....wow. I REALLY like my F8......look forward to seeing this release.

    Note - Can admit Cobra drivers were def not on my radar before I got my F8 but after gaming my F8 I am def a big fan.

    I like the move. In terms of sku, it’s the same amount for them. But consumers are kind of predisposed to purchasing by loft. I walk up to a tee with a new driver and offer my buddy a chance to swing it, first thing he’s asking is what loft it is. In stores it’s probably similar.

    Wow, the whole like is really great looking and packed with technology.
    I hit the F8 really well at the PGATSS, Can't wait to give it a try.

    Question I have, is why announce this 2 months before availability?
    Seems like all of the "Steam" will be gone by then.
    Maybe their tour players will be putting in to play and they had to do.

    I think that draw setting is gone for the sake of the design needing to be more aerodynamic and the CG placements. I won’t miss it!

    There’s a version with white “Avalanche” that replaces the yellow and has a satin black crown. Both look pretty sweet!!
