Key Features

The Cobra King F7 Fairway Wood features two different center of gravity positions, each designed to provide optimal ball flight depending on player preference or course conditions.

The MyFly8 customization feature allows golfers to adjust the loft and draw bias, allowing you even more options to set up the club just the way you want it.

Variations in rail size on each edition of the Cobra King F7 Fairway Wood make it easier to play great shots from almost any lie on the golf course.

Design and Technology

The design of the Cobra King F7 Fairway Wood blends the latest technology with time-proven club manufacturing features to create a truly high-performing fairway wood. A progressive dual rail Baffler provides players with long, shallow rails in the 3-wood for sweeping the golf ball off the tee and from the fairway, while the 5- and 7-woods have shorter, deeper rails to help get the ball up in the air from the rough, sand, and divots. There isn’t a long approach shot you can’t hit with the Cobra King F7 Fairway Wood.

When it comes to adjustability, sometimes it’s nice to have a fairway wood that allows you to hit a lower, more piercing trajectory. With the Cobra King F7 Fairway Wood, players can move the sole weight forward, which will help keep the ball from sailing into the air too quickly. This is great for firm, fast conditions or playing in strong winds, where keeping the ball down will help you control your shot and hit it further.

The MyFly8 with SmartPad feature makes full customization of the Cobra King F7 Fairway Wood a breeze, Eight different loft and face settings allow you to change the loft up or down 1.5 degrees, as well as three different draw biases. Since adjusting lofts can alter the way the sole sits on the ground, Cobra implemented the Baffler rails to limit how much of the sole touches the ground, making it even easier to maintain a square clubface no matter what loft you use.


PROS

  • Progressive baffler rails make it easy to play from any lie
  • Sits nicely at address without any hand manipulation
  • The golf ball seems to pop off the face at impact

CONS

  • Low center-of-gravity option may not appeal to some players

  • Not as long compared to other fairway woods
