Big group of entries from Cobra this year on The Hot List,
00:09
and this year's entry in the movable weight category
00:13
is the King F6.
00:15
You might remember last year they had the Fly-Z+,
00:18
it had a movable weight right on the crown,
00:20
flip it one way you get a different ball flight,
00:23
heavier in the back, higher, weight up front,
00:26
little bit lower.
00:28
What they've done this year, is make it bigger
00:31
so it's more forgiving, and they've made it less expensive,
00:34
about 50 dollars cheaper,
00:35
so you've got, essentially, a more forgiving driver,
00:38
and actually more adjustable, too.
00:40
The star of the show is really this sucker right here.
00:43
10 gram weight, that is further back than
00:45
from last years model.
00:47
Further back gives you a higher ball flight,
00:49
or you can move it even more further forward,
00:52
get it even lower, take the spin off it,
00:54
some players like that too.
00:56
And then, you've got the adjustable hosel,
00:58
eight settings, three draw settings,
01:01
which is really helpful for those who slice the ball,
01:05
nine to 12 degrees—there's something for everybody in there.
01:08
I love, what's beautiful about Cobra's philosophy
01:11
on adjustability is, I don't need to go buy
01:13
a 9.5, or a 10.5, or an 11.5,
01:16
this is the driver that you buy.
01:19
The settings are nine degrees to 12 degrees, right here,
01:22
you can look through this window,
01:23
it's going to tell you what the driver is
01:25
that you're playing.
01:26
And, like you've seen with our testers,
01:28
it is so easy to adjust, it is not an all-day time suck
01:32
to get this thing adjusted.
01:34
It's easy, it's compact, it's in a nice package,
01:39
and 50 bucks cheaper?
01:41
Who doesn't want an extra 50 bucks in their pocket.
01:43
And more forgiveness, so you've got more forgiveness,
01:45
less expensive, I'll take it.
