Our Assessment

8.7 Total Score
Great (B+)

Available in 4 different colors and most certainly will be appealing to the slightly younger golfer. A simple, easily adjustable loft/lie system that also alters ball flight being either a towering or penetrating trajectory. Sounds and feels fantastic and is great value for money at the price. The winner for us though was the minimal shot dispersion in terms of accuracy. 15 shots with a maximum spread of 21 yards between furthest left and furthest right is brilliant. Hats off to Cobra on that front!

Detailed Review

Design & Appearance

Funky. Cool. Those are two words to describe this visually attractive club. Undoubtedly aimed at the slightly younger player, the F6 Driver is available in four different colours (black, blue, green or white). Many of you will find this a strong selling point. In our opinion the white club-head has the most appeal as the white inset detail on the club-face seem to stand out that much more than the other three colour models. It also frames the center of the club-head beautifully.

Build Quality

A re-engineered Forged 8-1-1 Titanium E9 Face is lighter, thinner and hotter than before. The King F allows for two launch settings only. Either ‘towering’, which has the weight toward the rear of the club-head. Or ‘penetrating’, which has the weight positioned close to the club-face of the head. In case you’re not aware though – ‘towering’ is suitable for soft, windless conditions and ‘penetrating’ is for those firm & blustery conditions where the premium is on accuracy and minimizing the effect of the wind on your golf ball.

The only other adjustable setting is for the loft of the club at the hosel where it can be changed anywhere from 9 up to 12 degrees. This simplifies things and allows you to focus on simply hitting the ball well.

Control / Feel

A fantastic ‘thwack’ at impact, which separates itself from the more traditional sounding drivers at contact. Excellent feedback and the control on offer is impressive. Obviously each of us is different. Some of us, if confident enough, like to have the option of shaping a tee shot if necessary and others are quite happy just having something that goes straight. And straight only! Well the King F6 fits into the first category. It is very easy to turn over or cut from left to right at the drop of a hat.

If I can just suggest one thing though. Please! If there is trouble either side of the fairway and you’re not super confident in shaping a tee shot. Then don’t shape it! Grow your confidence by shaping your tee shot on a WIDE open hole where you can afford to miss it either side! Anyway that’s it from me in terms of instructional tips – let’s move on with the review!

Performance

The Speed Channel is an exclusive COBRA innovation and is an engineered channel around the perimeter of the face. What this does is minimize thickness and increase ball speeds across the face for incredible distance. The incredibly ‘smooth’ sole of the club allows for very little drag through the swing and thus provides a powerful dominant feel. Exceptional shot dispersion ratio and in our test the maximum spread left and right of target was 21 yards in a total of 15 shots… impressive! Solid distance and when taking advantage of the best setting for you the results will be evident in the additional distance gained.

Value for Money

One of the better options around in terms of value for money, you’ll impress any younger playing partners and will also catch the attention of any slightly older golfer too. We can almost guarantee they’ll be taking the Cobra King F6 out of your hands and holding it in theirs in order to see how it looks and feels at address!

Mike fell in love with the game from a very early age – a passion that hasn’t diminished ever since. He earned provincial colors throughout his junior years, but by the time he reached Varsity, the realization set in (thanks largely to some cold ales) that it was time to favor the pen rather than his clubs. He now writes for GA along with a few other sources.

    Purchased the Cobra F 6 Driver to replace an older Taylor made white burner driver. Was a good buy at $199.00 new. So far I have found it to be a little bit longer and have found the fairway a little more often. The shaft was an inch shorter than my old driver and there is less feed back on ball strikes but even good misses get more distance. I played with the moveable weights but have found that I like the lighter head with no weights as this driver has a lighter shaft than my old driver and where my old driver has a 9 degree loft I have the F6 set at 11.5 Draw and it has a lower ball flight.

    + PROS: Good value and is as long and accurate as any of the more expensive drivers. Easy to adjust the weights and hosel lofts.
    - CONS: Not a lot of feed back or sound on good ball strikes.
