    How on earth did this happen? I have removed mine from the shaft at least half a dozen times with no issue.

    Trust me I have switched the shaft between my 2 shafts many times since getting it last year.
    I was screwing it back in when all of a sudden it just was gone I thought I dropped it on the floor.
    I spent 5 minutes searching for it. Then I picked up the head to put it in the bag and it rattled.

    I may be the only person here to have this happen but i got the feeling from the response from Cobra CS that in not the 1st.

    Even if they tell me it's a goner I'll probably just get another F8 or F8+ when i can afford it.

    I'm not saying this was in any ways Cobras fault I'm the IDIOT.

    I was just curious if anyone had ever had something like this happen?

    I just want to give CPG a huge shout out. They removed the screw and Polished it up before sending it back. It seems like companies look for ways not to serve their CPG goes above and beyond!!!

    Great Customer service from CPG!!!
