    The crown looks really nice. It just screams speed.

    The sole looks...busy, especially in the yellow. There's a part of me that feels like it's a throwback to the Fly-Z+ given the weight shape and placement. I'm interested to see what the difference in spin is between the weight in the front compared to the back.

    Haha no I saw and read it as well. Just mentioning your picture of the yellow :).

    I really am intrigued by this one. The f8+ has been great for me overall.

    That’s a ton of technology packed into a single driver head! They mentioned the new sole design will help transfer energy more efficiently, but I would also think the crown would be somewhat stabilized with the new “crown trips” and also aid in energy transfer. I definitely want to give this driver a shot at some point, I enjoyed the F8+ and the F9 looks like it’s made some serious gains over it.

    Nice! It’s definitely a different shape, but you can really see some of the tech from the homepage article from this angle. It’s an an outside the box offering, which CPG isn’t afraid to release and I like that!

    Wow that's a fantastic looking driver. With that added carbon in curious how the sound/feel are impacted. That's a whole lot of technology packed in to that driver, I can wait to hear more about the performance.

    Wow such a bold design and aesthetic departure from the F8 line and it looks fantastic! And it sounds like it will be cranking out the ball speed. I like the idea of going with a single driver on this release. Sounds like they really got the design right. Seeing real world performance is going to be a lot of fun.
