Cobra King 2017 drivers

The new Cobra King drivers have landed for 2017 with an exciting new feature designed to make it ‘the smartest’ driver on the market.

For the first time, the brand’s drivers boast the Cobra Connect system, which has been developed with Arccos and allows you to automatically track the distance and accuracy of every drive.

Available in the new range, the Cobra Connect system sits in the butt end of the club. It can simply be paired with the free Arccos Driver smartphone app to give your driver performance data, as well as access to GPS rangefinder distances for 40,000 courses and the opportunity to compete in the ‘King of the Hole’ virtual long drive competition.

So, how does it work on the course? Well, the Cobra Connect system communicates at shot impact with your smartphone, which needs to be carried in your front pocket.

It then uses Cobra’s own shot detection algorithm and sensors on your smartphone to work out where you hit your second shot from. This allows it to calculate driving distance and accuracy in real time.

After your round, you can review your driving performance, track your stats for improvements and even share pictures, longest drives and key stats with your friends.

While that technology alone may already have you reaching for your wallet, the new Cobra King F7 and F7+ drivers are just as impressive.

The Cobra King F7 arrives with a bigger face and a profile that looks larger when you sit the driver behind the ball at address.

Distance, forgiveness and speed across the face are the three key characteristics Cobra says the King F7 offers and it also comes with an improved adjustable weight system.

With three settings in the front, back and heel positions, it allows you to choose between three differing ball flights – low, high and draw.

By placing the heavier 12g weight in the front position, it gives a lower, more penetrating ball flight with less spin and more roll to max out your distance.

When the heavier weight is placed in the back position, it gives a higher flight with added spin to improve both carry distance and forgiveness.

The heel is the final option for the weight and it works to reduce spin and give straighter drives for those who struggle with a slice.

The Cobra King F7+ driver, meanwhile, is targeted more towards the better player with a smaller head and lower loft range.

It features much of the same technology as the standard F7, including the three adjustable weight settings, but offers a lower spinning option.
