THE TECH

The world’s first “con­nected golf club”, where a shot-track­ing sen­sor in the grip records data for ev­ery drive you hit and makes it easy to an­a­lyse and share your long game per­for­mance across so­cial me­dia. Three sole weights can be changed, let­ting you choose be­tween a pen­e­trat­ing, low-spin tra­jec­tory, for­giv­ing high flight or a draw bias, which is se­ri­ously clever from just the one head.

OUR VER­DICT

Cobra has taken the F7’s toe-to-heel di­men­sion to the max al­lowed by the rules to heighten for­give­ness. It means the F7 looks a bit of a brute at ad­dress, but also means ex­tra for­give­ness. All three testers agreed the F7 per­formed a great bal­anc­ing act be­tween feel­ing light­weight and pow­er­ful. And the com­bi­na­tion of a gi­ant foot­print and a lively Fu­jikura Pro shaft bred lots of con­fi­dence, giv­ing the im­pres­sion the F7 was supremely easy to hit. Our test pro’s data demon­strates per­fectly how much dif­fer­ence mov­ing the weights be­tween the front and back ports made. A 5mph rise in ball speed and 1.2° rise in launch an­gle added an ex­tra 12m of carry with the 12g weight in the back po­si­tion.
