Last year the Co­bra King F6 line won a lot of fans, and for its evo­lu­tion Co­bra has turned to more cus­tomi­sa­tion and per­for­mance and some cool new track­ing tech­nol­ogy.

The King F7 and F7+ driv­ers will take the head­lines, giv­ing you a choice be­tween a larger, for­giv­ing model and a smaller, tra­di­tional shape.

Both come with the new Co­bra Con­nect sys­tem pow­ered by Ar­c­cos – a sen­sor em­bed­ded in the grip that al­lows you to au­to­mat­i­cally track the dis­tance and ac­cu­racy of your drives when paired with your smart­phone.

In terms of head tech­nol­ogy, the F7 has a larger face and pro­file than the F6. This pro­vides more dis­tance, for­give­ness and speed across the face.

An ad­justable weight sys­tem with three pos­si­ble cen­tre of grav­ity (CG) lo­ca­tions then caters for low, high and draw ball-flight pref­er­ences.

The King F7 driver also fea­tures a re-en­gi­neered face that is lighter and thin­ner to cre­ate faster ball speeds, with a multi-ma­te­rial TeXtreme car­bon-fi­bre crown sav­ing the weight that al­lowed Co­bra to in­clude the new sole weights.

The F7+ fea­tures the same tech­nol­ogy in a smaller, deeper-faced pro­file with a matte fin­ish.

A match­ing King F7 fair­way and hy­brid join the driv­ers, with both util­is­ing Co­bra’s Baf­fler Rail Sys­tem that helps the clubs glide through the turf more smoothly.

You’ll also find ad­justable 20g and 3g sole weights on the fair­way so you can tai­lor your launch and spin, while the F7 hy­brid has a fixed 13g weight to en­cour­age for­give­ness and con­trol.

The King F7 driver (£279) has eight ad­justable loft set­tings from 9-12°, while the F7+ (£299) cov­ers lofts from 8-11°. The fair­way (£189) can be switched be­tween 13-19° and the hy­brid (£159) 16-25°.

All are avail­able from Jan­uary 27, 2017, with black, blue and sil­ver colour op­tions.
