    Build Your 2019 Cobra Hybrids

    The 2019 Morgan Cup is less than 90 days away 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 hybrids 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
    King F9 One Length
    King Utility Black
    King Utility Black One Length

    Shaft Choices
    For Hybrid
    Fujikura Atmos 7
    UST Mamiya Recoil ES SmacWrap
    UST Mamiya Recoil 460 ES
    Aldila 2k XV Green Hybrid

    For Utility
    UST Mamiya Recoil ES SmacWrap
    True Temper AMT Tour White in Black PVD

    Grip Choices
    KING F9 Black Midsize
    King F9 Blue Midsize
    KING F9 Standard
    REL Black
    Crossline Black
    Tour Velvet
    UTX Black

    I could see myself with either

    2 hybrid or 3 hybrid
    NV green 2kxv
    Tour Velvet

    With a 3-4 Utility
    Amt shaft
    Tour Velvet

    I think this portion of the bag is so hard to fit. I want something easy to hit/control that doesn't balloon or spin too much.

    The one thing I wish I had done last year was put 1 Utility in my bag. My F8 4H is very solid though and I really enjoy that club. I have the 2H too which I am capable of hitting some fantastic shots with but lately I have been leaving it in the car and playing a non Cobra 3U for some experimenting.

    you and i tend to be very similar in what we like and what works, but we are on polar opposites here.

    the king black wedges were my favorite clubs we received in the 2018 morgan cup. the f8 hybrids were a very close second. i would think the design changes in the f9 would be subtle and evolutionary. if so, i would go:

    f9 3h ust mamiya recoil 780 es smacwrap f4
    f9 4h ust mamiya recoil 780 es smacwrap f4
    standard/variable length.
    utx black 2 full wraps, 2 extra wraps under the right hand.

    These hybrids are awesome, I got the 2H with the 2k xv green and man does it go the distance. I got the 4H with the reciol es smacwrap and it is so easy to hit, spins great on the greens.

    This was the one club I was absolutely sure of, but it looks like I need to figure out a different plan for the shaft.

    Question, both the shafts listed for the UT are the stock offerings, which do not show x flex as an option. Do either get offered in x for us?

    They should be available in X, but if not at the time of ordering, Cobra has said they will find an alternative with the player.

    I saw the HZRDUS black option in the custom setup which is a shaft I'm familiar with. Pretty much, I want low spin bullets that penetrate as they fall (for bounce).

    I can make whatever work though. NBD.
