The Cobra King F6 Hybrid features a few changes that you can't see in a better looking shape that you can.

Cobra King F6 Hybrid

With the King F6 range Cobra is majoring on getting the Centre of Gravity (CG) lower and in the right position to deliver better performance. In the hybrid they achieve this by shortening the hosel and by using a 13g sole weight to keep the CG low and back.

This is helped by the 17-4 Stainless Steel crown that has a slightly more toe heavy appearance at address than the previous Cobra Fly-Z hybrid.

The King F6 Hybrid looks very classy and sleek, although some may find the groove lines in the centre make the face look a bit busier than the King F6 driver and fairway that don't have them.

The face continues with an update to the Speed Channel that first appeared on the Fly-Z and increases ball speed on off centre hits from the 455 High-Strength Carpenter Steel face that is the same thickness throughout.

What you will like though is the sound and feel, which right from the first swing were just fantastic. Cobra says that they have positioned the CG to hit the ball straight rather than have a draw bias and this it does in style.

The silver Matrix Red Tie HQ4 shaft blends in really well with the looks and the performance of the King F6 hybrid head.

The shaft slots into the head using a shorter version of the MyFly8 adjustable hosel that enables you to change the loft through five settings across 4° as well as 3 further draw settings. Having the shorter hosel reduces the amount of weight above the CG axis and that helps lower the overall CG of the club.

There are three heads to choose from covering a range of lofts from a 2/3 at 16°-19°, a 3/4 at 19°-22° and a 4/5 at 22°-25°. When you change the loft or face angle the raised SmartPad on the sole helps the club pivot to keep the head square visually at address.

Cobra King F6 Hybrid

You can have any choice of crown colour as long as it is 'Glass Black with Vibrant Orange', which is a change from the Cobra rainbow options of the past and the rest of the King F6 woods. This therefore doesn't give you the option of a contrasting colour face for alignment, but I do like the clean looks as colour doesn't always work on hybrids.

Even with the neutral set up, it is still easy enough to shape the King F6 hybrid if you want to, but if you just want to have a consistent straight club for those tight driving holes then it will do that job too.

Cobra King F6 Hybrid

There are not many neutral set up and forgiving hybrids around, so when someone makes one and does it well then I am all over it as the last thing better players want is for hybrids to go left on them.

The Cobra King F6 combines this with one of the best looking, sounding and feeling hybrids that they have done and with all the adjustability options for loft then this could be the only hybrid you will need.

User Reviews

August 2016

Tried this club against the M1 and M2. Easiest to hit and carried further than the other 2 hybrids. Definitely worth testing.

February 2016

Solid and easy to work the ball. Very pleased.

February 2016

Hit the 2/3 hybrid and I had it set at 19 degrees with a regular shaft. The average carry was 225 to 235 and the sound and feel off the face was awesome. Out distanced all the other manufacturers I tried. The balls rocketed off the face and flew pretty straight. Overall this is the best hybrid make up I have ever hit!
