OUR TAKE

Cobra reshaped the profile of last-year's F7, thinning the hosel and lowering the skirt to save weight in the F8. The mass is repositioned to a fixed weight low and back on the sole to give the F8 exceptional forgiveness and launch. The polymer ridges on the crown save weight over titanium, too, while reducing drag through the swing. But the signature tech is a pair of Baffler rails along the sole, which help keep the club on track through impact—a neat trick for mid- to high-handicappers looking to get out of hairy lies.

FITTER COMMENTS

"Standout performer. Easy to hit, with a trajectory profile exactly where you want it for a hybrid. Shots achieve the proper height and distance before landing softly, and the rails do their job."
