Q & A
From a technological standpoint, the F6+ Pro driver claims the same features and many of the same performance attributes as the F6+. Most notably, it delivers incredibly low spin rates. That was made possible in a couple of ways. For starters, Cobra engineers were able to move the CG to the neutral axis, and the zero CG that the F6+ Pro can claim leads to a high-launch, low-spin ball flight, which is optimal in terms of driver performance. Additionally, an 18-gram weight can be utilized in five settings along the sole to give players the chance to dial in their ideal launch angle and spin rate, which is one of the keys to more distance. But the incredible distance the F6+ Pro delivers also comes from a thin, hot Forged E9 clubface, which supported by Cobra’s Speed Channel structure creates faster ball speeds from impact points across the face. And like the F6+, the F6+ Pro has a slightly smaller profile and comes stock with the Matrix Black Tie, which is a lower-launching shaft. The main difference, however, between the F6+ and F6+ Pro is that the Pro offers lower loft options, ranging from 7-10 degrees, and has three settings that will create a fade bias, making it a popular choice for players with higher swing speeds.

Lower-handicap players with higher swing speeds. The lower lofts and fade settings, as opposed to draw settings, will make the F6+ Pro a lower-launching driver and difficult to turn over if you’re not generating a lot of speed through impact. The Pro won’t be any less forgiving than the F6+, but from a playability standpoint, someone with a more modest swing speed or who struggles at times to square the clubface would be better served to play the F6+ and leave the Pro version to the bombers.
TOP technology enables a titanium body and lightweight carbon crown that allows weight to be moved to create the zero CG in the F6+.
An 18-gram weight can be positioned in five different settings along the sole to help players achieve their desired launch and spin conditions.
An exclusive Cobra innovation, the Speed Channel is a trench that surrounds and supports the clubface, which enables a thinner face that increases ball speed from all impact points.
Cobra’s adjustable loft sleeve, MyFly loft technology allows for lofts ranging from 7-10 degrees in the F6+ Pro and eight different playability settings, three of which will create a fade bias.
“This is one of our two drivers that have what we call zero CG, projected from the center of the face. It’s very exciting in terms of high ball flight with low spin and maximum distance. We added the capability with a track system to have five settings now. It’s really about defining the right ball flight for your game and the right setting for your driver so that your swing feels right, the ball flight is good, and you maximize your performance.”
Tom Olsavsky, Cobra Vice President of Research & Development
“It really only has one adjustment here but (the weight) just going from the back to the front really changed the way the club came through the hitting zone. For me, with my swing, it worked the best when it was all the way in the back.”
