The KING F9 SPEEDBACK™ driver is the first Cobra driver to successfully combine an aerodynamic club shape, a low center of gravity, and a precision CNC milled face.
SPEEDBACK Technology is a revolutionary advancement in engineering, creating the first driver to successfully combine an aerodynamic shape with a low center of gravity to optimize club speed and ball speed for maximum distance.
Three different models (9.0, 10.5 and 12.0) feature 8 adjustable lofts and a front to back adjustable CG system, allowing golfers of all abilities (Tour to 25 handicaps) to find the perfect launch & spin configuration for their game.
Our engineers identified a common problem in today's driver designs: to get optimal aerodynamic properties, you have to sacrifice other parts of the design. SPEEDBACK™ Technology is a revolutionary breakthrough in driver engineering and is the first to combine a streamlined, aerodynamic shape with a low center of gravity. Paired with the only CNC milled driver face, it delivers substantial improvements in club speed, ball speed and distance without sacrificing forgiveness.
Longer starts with Faster. Faster starts with SPEEDBACK, a revolutionary advancement in low CG, efficient aerodynamics, and precision CNC milled face technology that delivers the Ultimate Formula For Speed.
SPEEDBACK Technology delivers Cobra's most aerodynamic club shape which utilizes rounded leading edges, a raised crown, a raised skirt and a raised tail. This design streamlines the clubhead to promote an uninterrupted flow of air from the leading edge to the tail, to reduce drag and increase club speed.
A low CG structure comprised of titanium and tungsten moves the CG low and deep, creating a more efficient transfer of energy to the ball for optimized launch and spin, while maintaining an aerodynamic shape.
In an industry where everyone claims to have a fast driver face, ours is the only one that is CNC milled. A process that is up to 5 times more precise than conventional hand-polished driver faces, CNC milling delivers our thinnest and hottest face design repeatedly on every driver.
CNC milling allows face thicknesses and curvatures to be controlled to tighter tolerances, ensuring consistent performance across every driver manufactured.
CNC milling is an industry leading technology that took two and a half years to perfect. We are the only company to feature CNC milling in both our driver and fairway faces.
CNC milling yields more precise face thickness compared to manual hand polishing, allowing us to design a thinner and faster conforming face.
Dual Roll adds distance to your drives by reducing the gear effect that negatively impacts launch and spin on shots hit high and low on the face. Each driver is SPEED TUNED with optimized top and bottom curvatures to tune launch and spin for different swing speeds and attack angles.
Bulge and roll curvatures are CNC milled into the face following exact specifications in the 3D CAD file design to ensure consistent performance in every driver we manufacture.
1. Top Roll Curvature
The top half features more curvature than the bottom half of the face to promote higher launch with reduced spin on shots hit above the centerline.
2. 7-DEGREE AXIS TILT
The axis is tilted at a 7 degree angle to account for the amount of toe droop that occurs during a typical swing.
3. BOTTOM ROLL CURVATURE
The bottom curvature is SPEED TUNED to optimize the loft of each driver head (9.0, 10.5, 12.0 to 12.5 women's & junior's) to maximize launch and spin for different swing speeds and attack angles on shots hit below the centerline.
Three different horizontal bulge curvatures are CNC milled into the face to control loft and face angle on the heel, toe and center areas. Having perfected bulge curvatures is crucial to minimize the gear effect on shots hit on the toe and on the heel so the ball ends up closer to the target line.
E9 Technology is a variable thickness structure designed in an elliptical shape (along 9 different points) that expands the SWEET ZONE across a typical miss-hit pattern that ranges from the low heel to high toe areas.
E9 and Dual Roll technologies are optimized for each driver loft, while CNC milling creates precise bulge and roll curvatures to improve driving accuracy and distance on off-center hits.

Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation, Cobra engineers have created our largest carbon fiber crown design that is the first to wrap over the crown onto the body. This design produces a 12% larger carbon fiber area that saves 10 grams compared to titanium driver crowns.
Engineered creases called PWR Ridges frame alignment and add rigidity to the carbon crown structure to create more energy return and power to the ball to maximize speed.
Polymer crown trips are positioned relative to the direction of airflow around the club head to reduce drag and increase clubhead speed. Using a lightweight polymer material on the crown trips improves aerodynamics without raising the center of gravity. Titanium trips are positioned on the sole to speed up the flow of air traveling underneath the driver.
The KING® F9 SPEEDBACK™ drivers feature adjustable center of gravity (CG) and MyFly loft technologies, allowing you to fine-tune trajectory and launch to maximize distance.
Customize your center of gravity (CG) position using moveable weight technology. A heavy weight (14g) and lightweight (2g) can be moved to the front or back position to fine-tune trajectory, launch and spin.
8 easily adjustable loft settings allow players to manage launch and spin conditions to optimize distance. Smart Pad Technology keeps the face square at address regardless of the loft setting.
Tour aftermarket shafts in varying weights and flex profiles are paired with each driver loft (9.0, 10.5, and 12.0) to complement the performance of the head. Actual aftermarket structures feature premium materials and stiffer, lower torque profiles that reduce spin for improved distance and dispersion.
Available in the 10.5 and 12 heads in regular and lite flex. Designed for golfers seeking a lightweight shaft with extreme stability, Helium is ideal for moderate to medium swing speeds who would benefit from a high-launch and mid-spin profile.
Available in the 9.0 and 10.5 heads in stiff and regular flex. The ATMOS Tour Spec Blue is a midweight shaft ideal for medium to faster swing speeds seeking a mid-launch, mid-spin profile.
Available in the 9.0 and 10.5 heads in extra-stiff and stiff flex. The HZRDUS Smoke is a midweight shaft ideal for medium to faster swing speeds seeking maximum playability and control in a mid-launch, low-spin profile.
Available in the 9.0 head in extra-stiff and stiff flex. The ATMOS Tour Spec Black features a stouter and heavier profile ideal for faster swing speeds seeking a low-launch, low-spin profile.
