The 2009 King Cobra S9-1 F/ST driver has been designed to suit the majority of today’s serious golfing population. Incorporating all of Cobra’s cutting edge technology developed for the S9-1 driver range the F/ST model is set up to optimise distance and accuracy with a head designed to promote a slight draw biased, high launch, low to mid spin ball flight. Aimed at players with swing speeds between 87-108 mph it incorporates a mid weight shaft with a mid flex/torque profile and a softer grip, all aimed at increasing accuracy and distance amongst this group of players. As with all the Cobra S9-1 range the F/ST model incorporates Hotter 9 Point technology to maximise ball speed across the whole clubface. With a high MOI and a large face area incorporating Cobras Milled Dual Rhombus Technology the S9-1 has seen both the face and head shapes precisely redesigned to allow weight to be optimally placed and ball speed maximised. Cobra’s unique speed tuning means that discretionary weight can be placed differently in each model as a result of a new internal rib geometry. In the case of the S9-1 F/ST it is this which, in conjunction with a lighter club and F/ST shaft, delivers the slight draw-bias, high-launch, low-mid spin ball flight that consistently gives golfers the increased distance and accuracy they are searching for.

The Cobra S9-1 F Speed driver is a great addition to the Cobra driver range and is a worthy successor to the LD F Speed. The heads have been redesigned to utilise Cobra’s Dual Rhombus technology, with the width and top profile of the club slightly reduced to allow this weight to be repositioned for increased performance. The new design certainly looks good and at address is easy to align and sits confidently behind the ball. The S9-1 F Speed is designed to give a slight draw bias with a high launch and we found that the driver was very consistent in this respect, feeling and sounding good at impact and performing well on shots from all across the clubface both in terms of distance and accuracy. Aimed at amateur players with faster swing speeds (the M Speed models have been designed for higher handicappers) we feel that this is one of the best value for money drivers around and one that enhances Cobras reputation for producing excellent drivers that fit and complement player’s games.
