Compared to hand-polished drivers, CNC machining yields more precise thicknesses resulting in a thinner and hotter face that increases ball speed and distance.
A lightweight 8-1-1 Titanium body and forged face saves discretionary weight to move the CG lower for improved launch and speed. CNC milling delivers a thinner and more precise E9™ variable thickness face structure for increased distance on off-center hits.
Tested against a traditional hand-polished driver face, the CNC milled face on the KING® F8 driver produced increased ball speeds ranging from 1.2 to 1.6 mph across the face.
Unlike traditional drivers designed with a constant roll radius, COBRA's innovative Dual Roll Technology™ utilizes different curvatures on the top and bottom of the face to optimize launch and spin for shots hit above or below face center.
COBRA's patented Dual Roll™ design features more curvature on the top half of the face and a flatter bottom half to optimize launch and spin for shots hit both high and low on the face.
Using CNC milling, COBRA® engineers were able to design a more precise horizontal face curvature (bulge radius) to compensate for gear effect and deliver more accuracy on shots hit on the heel and toe.
Polymer crown trips are 10% lighter than Titanium, to help improve aerodynamic performance without raising the CG. Titanium trips are utilized on the sole for increased durability, while lowering the CG for enhanced speed.
Represented in the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) models below, the streamlined shape of the KING® F8 driver optimizes the flow separation on the crown and sole to significantly reduce drag. Lower drag will give you more clubhead speed and ultimately more distance off the tee.
The back weight setting promotes higher, towering ball flight, while the heel weight setting promotes a slightly lower launch with increased draw bias.
8 easily adjustable loft settings help you manage trajectory and fine tune launch and spin to maximize distance. Increasing or decreasing the loft will adjust the launch by +/- .5 degrees and the spin by +/- 400 rpms, respectively.
A larger clubhead profile at address paired with two very forgiving (back and heel) weight settings, increases MOI for more distance and speed on off-center hits.
Lightweight carbon fiber provides the weight savings needed to incorporate moveable weights into the design, while also repositioning weight low and back for improved launch and forgiveness.

The new KING F8 Junior Driver is engineered to deliver the same blend of maximum distance and increased forgiveness as the men’s KING F8 Driver, with shorter shaft length options and higher lofts ideal for the Junior golfer.
The Junior Driver is equipped with 2 (Back & Heel) Center of Gravity settings. Place the 12g silver heavy weight in the back position to promote a higher, towering ball flight with more carry, or place the weight in the heel position to promote a medium to high ball flight with draw bias.
The MyFly8 adjustable loft technology allows junior golfers to tune their launch and spin as their game develops, helping them manage their distance and trajectory. The Junior Driver can be adjusted to the following loft settings: 11° - 14° (std loft = 12.5°) and three draw settings: 11.5°, 12.5°, 13.5°.
The KING F8 Junior Driver then takes adjustability a step further with SmartPad, COBRA’s proprietary technology, which delivers a square face at address regardless of loft setting. This helps the junior golfer to align the ball straighter down the fairway at address.
Since kids grow very quickly, we are continuing the Free Shaft Upgrade option with the KING F8 Junior Driver. Golfers can register their purchased F8 Junior Driver, email the registration info to firstname.lastname@example.org and receive one free upgrade to a longer, firmer shaft when needed.
