The new King F6 drivers from Cobra use different weighting systems in an effort to provide much the same thing to players: the ability to customize their clubs to produce their preferred ball flights.
Consider the F6+, which comes with a carbon fiber crown, a Ti 811 titanium body and a sliding, 18-gram sole weight with five front-to-back, low center-of-gravity positions. That allows players to fine-tune their drivers, with ultra-low CG, if that’s what they want, and ball flights that run from towering to penetrating.
As for the King F6, it comes with a dual position, front-to-back CG system with 10- and 3-gram flip weights. Once again, adjustability is an important trait. Put the heavier weight in the front CG position, and golfers should be able to promote a more penetrating ball flight with less spin and more roll. Place it in the back position, however, and drives should fly higher, with the added spin that they also possess with that weight position increasing carry.
“The King F6 family was created to bring the best zonal weighting technologies to golfers of all levels,” says Tom Olsavsky, vice president of research and development at Cobra Golf. “Through improved material innovation and research, we will able to design a stronger, lighter structure that creates the perfect combination of adjustable low CG and high inertia, which is something that is extremely hard to do. As a result, golfers will discover the best in distance, forgiveness and precision in these.”
