COBRA’s KING F9 Speedback promises improvements in speed and distance, described as the perfect club for women’s swing speeds. Here is what Carly Frost thought when she put it to the test.

The KING F9 featuring revolutionary SPEEDBACK Technology is our first driver to combine a streamlined, aerodynamic shape with a low centre of gravity. With the only CNC milled driver face, it delivers improvements in club speed, ball speed and distance without sacrificing forgiveness. A lighter and softer shaft, a lighter swing weight and a higher loft combine to create the perfect club for women’s swing speeds.
I love the look of this driver. It’s beautifully designed, like a sleek black sports car with fancy feminine touches. It’s also incredibly easy to hit, launching the ball high even when swung at a slow speed. The very loud impact sound resonates power, and the distance you’ll get mirrors that sound. The milled face not only looks great, it gives you a lovely large circle target to aim for in the middle of the face, inspiring confidence and definitely offering exceptional forgiveness.
