Cobra Golf’s new King F8 and King F8+ drivers feature the brand’s first ever Precision Milled Forged face for superb performance off the tees.
The ground-breaking, fully CNC machined driver face paired with revolutionary 360º Aero Technology and equipped with Cobra Connect Powered by Arccos deliver Cobra’s fastest, most precise and smartest drivers to date.
The driver face utilises a unique multi-directional CNC milling pattern that delivers an extremely high level of precision. Compared to traditional hand-polished drivers, CNC precision milling allowed Cobra’s engineers to achieve precise face thickness and tighter tolerances for improved bulge-and-roll curvatures. The face is 3% thinner and 10% lighter for increased ball speed across the face.
Golfers have a choice between oversized performance with maximum forgiveness in the King F8 and traditional shaping with maximum workability, precision and penetrating ball flights in the F8+.
King F8 Driver
The King F8 driver features an oversized address profile that increases MOI and provides more distance, forgiveness and speed on off-centre hits. An adjustable weight system offers two Centre of Gravity (CG) settings – one in the back for a higher ball flight and one in the heel to provide additional draw bias.
Cobra’s 360° Aero Technology incorporates an innovative system of aerodynamic trips strategically positioned around the perimeter of the face to improve drag reduction through the downswing for increased clubhead speed. A polymer material on the trips placed on the crown creates better CG positioning and higher MOI, while an ultralight, 5-ply Carbon Fibre crown saves discretionary weight to move the CG lower and deeper for higher trajectories and increased forgiveness.
The lightweight 8-1-1 Titanium Body and Forged Face spares weight while Cobra’s patented E9 Technology, a variable thickness face designed with elliptical pattern Sweet Zone, creates more hot spots farther away from the centre of the face for more distance on heel and toe shots.
MyFly8 with Smart Pad Technology affords golfers the choice of eight loft settings (9.0°, 9.5°, 9.5°D, 10.5°, 10.5ºD, 11.5°, 11.5ºD and 12°) to fine-tune launch conditions, while Smart Pad maintains a square clubhead at address.
The King F8 driver comes in two colourways, Nardo Grey or Black, while the stock grip is Lamkin REL 360 (Tour Taper; Cobra Connect) in Nardo or Black (to match the clubhead colour).

King F8+ Driver
Featuring a more traditional clubhead shape and a lower loft range (8.0°, 8.5°, 8.5°D, 9.0°, 9.5°D, 10.0°, 10.5°D and 11°), the F8+ driver utilises the same key technologies as the F8, including a CNC Precision Milled E9 face, 360° Aero Technology, Carbon Fibre Crown and MyFly8 Technology.
Designed to generate lower trajectories compared to the F8, the F8+ driver is equipped with two CG settings – one in the front, for a lower, penetrating ball flight, and one in the back for a higher, towering ball flight with slightly more spin.
Also available in Nardo Grey and Black, the plus version comes stock with a Lamkin Crossline 360 (Cobra Connect) grip in Nardo or Black.

Ladies King F8 Driver
The Ladies version comes in two attractive colourways, Black/Lexi Blue and Silver/Raspberry and offers all the innovative technologies present in the men’s versions, including CNC Milled Face, 360º Aero Technology, Cobra Connect, two adjustable CG positions in the back and heel, Carbon Fibre Crown and MyFly8 with Smart Pad Technology. An oversized profile at address increases MOI, providing ladies with much needed distance, forgiveness and speed on off-centre hits.
The loft range, created for ladies swing speeds to maximise launch and distance, is 11°, 11.5°, 11.5°D, 12.5°, 12.5°D, 13.5°, 13.5°D and 14°. The ladies driver is fitted with a Lamkin REL 360 Connect grip, available in Grey or Black.
