Cobra King F6 Hybrid

Our Assessment 

When choosing a hybrid there are obviously a whole host of elements that make up your selection criteria, but try keep it simple. Either you want to primarily use your hybrid off the tee for distance and position. Or you want to use it from the fairway and first cut to improve your approach shots into shallow or midsize greens.

The Cobra as mentioned before falls into the first category primarily. Fantastic looking club at a good price. If you are after both distance and accuracy off the tee in particular then give the King F6 Hybrid a bash. Exceptionally tight in terms of shot dispersion & feels and sounds beautiful at impact.

Cobra have stepped up their game in the last 24 months and have some quality offerings.

Check Latest Prices


  • Beautiful looks overall, glossy crown with textured dot pattern is just plain classy
  • Exceptionally straight shot shape and ball flight due to the minimal side spin
  • More than long enough – particularly off the tee with a bit of roll upon landing
  • Great price. Honestly!


  • Low spin at impact resulting in mid (and sometimes low) ball flight
  • Can help you in most situations, but also wouldn’t say it is tremendously versatile particularly from the semi rough or uneven lies

Cobra King F6 Hybrid Detailed Review

Design & Appearance

Love the look of the Cobra King F6! Classy and sleek sum it up and this pure black hybrid will certainly keep you interested when taking it out your bag.

Glossy black crown (similar to the Taylormade M1 Rescue), but with a textured dot pattern toward the rear of the head. A mix of matte and gloss on the sole with the orange weight that is fixed at the rear.

The clubface is dotted with white groove lines that actually look good up against the back of the ball at address.

Depending on how much you play, these groove lines will blemish though and filter in with the black clubface over time. Just try make sure your general strike is centered so it looks like a professional’s club!

The actual head shape of the Cobra is fairly rounded both from heel to toe and from front to back. It also has a shorter hosel which looks good, but actually serves a purpose in terms of playability.

Build Quality

The F6 Hybrid is equipped with a fixed 13 gram weight. Strategically positioned low and deep in the head to improve forgiveness.

The engineered Speed Channel around the perimeter of the face minimizes thickness and increases ball speeds across the face for greater distance. There is an easily adjustable loft/lie setting in the hosel too, which is a big plus.

Another thing which Cobra are using to their advantage is offering you a progressive combo set that has hybrid ‘long irons’ and cavity back short irons. Most of us love to make the game as easy as possible.

Control & Feel

Sound and feel off the clubface is fantastic. In fact, from the first time I hit it, I just couldn’t get enough of the sound. It’s a moreish ‘thwack’ at impact that oozes depth and solidness.

I’m sure you’re with me on this one, but I can’t stand a tingy almost tinny metal wood sound in this day and age. This won’t disappoint you in that regard.

There actually isn’t much spring to this head, but that improves feedback. Straight away you know where on the clubface you’ve struck it and only centered shots go a mile.

Ball flight is of a mid trajectory with a mid launch too. At first I thought this club would produce a higher launch particularly with the lowered center of gravity and it being more towards the rear. However it did come out a tad lower than ‘high’, but not all that bad.

Plenty of roll once landing and again – know what you want out of a rescue or hybrid BEFORE you buy. Basically there are two options. The first is a higher launch with higher ball flight enabling you to approach long Par 4’s or short Par 5’s easier than before.

The second is you’re wanting either a replacement for a current long iron or 5 wood that you can use primarily off the tee for positioning with plenty of distance. The Cobra falls into the latter category.

And speaking of positioning, the Cobra King is exceptionally accurate! Hardly any sidespin on the golf ball resulting in tight dispersion.

Just superb. In terms of versatility it’s middle of the road, from the fairway or first cut it’s great. But from the semi rough you’ll be hoping for a good lie when walking up to your ball from the tee.

Then again you would have had to hit a terrible shot to be there in the first place as like I said before, the Cobra King F6 Hybrid is like raw spaghetti – dead straight!

Value for Money

When choosing a hybrid there are obviously a whole host of elements that make up your selection criteria, but try keep it simple. Either you want to primarily use your hybrid off the tee for distance and position.

Or you want to use it from the fairway and first cut to improve your approach shots into shallow or midsize greens. The Cobra as mentioned before falls into the first category primarily.

Summing up all the positives and negatives, I’m happy to say this is great value for money.

At the price of $199.00 and cheaper than most competitors, this will provide deadly accuracy, more than enough distance and a great feel and sound at impact. Get stuck in here, Cobra have definitely lifted their game over the last 24 months.

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.

PXG 0311 Wedge Review

You might think that because we reviewed the irons, we were done talking about the PXG 0311s. Well, sorry to go on and on about them, but the wedges are distinct enough that we decided they were worthy of a review of their own. Visionary Bob Parsons (PXG stands for Parsons eXtreme Golf) also founded GoDaddy, so
