Cobra King F6 Junior Driver

March 2, 2016

Cobra already has a couple of the game’s brightest young stars — Rickie Fowler and Lexi Thompson — so why not build sticks for the junior golfers who idolize them?

The new King F6 Junior driver is equipped with many of the same technologies as in the adult version, including 10- and 3-gram weights on the sole that can help fine-tune the club’s CG location.

Placing the 10-gram weight in the back position yields a higher trajectory, longer carry, and added forgiveness. Meanwhile, the heavier weight closer to the face promotes shots with lower launch and spin that will roll more — ideal for firmer conditions and more powerful swings.

The 12° black head with orange accents can be adjusted from 10.5° to 13.5°, with draw settings at 11°, 12° and 13°. How’s this for a nice touch? Players can get a free shaft upgrade when they grow out of the original (the driver comes with a Fujikura Fuel shaft in 39″, 41″ and 43″). $250; in stores March 15.
