King Cobra S9-1 driver
Golf Monthly Verdict

The Cobra S9-1 Pro driver has a beautiful head that is realistically only for extremely confident ball strikers. Geoff Ogilvy’s superb play this year is proof of how effective this can be in the right hands. The black head and face looks fantastic and shots from the middle produce an awesome flight.

The Cobra S9-1 Pro driver is designed for tour players and low handicappers with fast swing speeds. Deep or shallow face options are available and both offer Cobra’s ‘Hotter 9 Points’ face technology that when combined with a new shape face provides maximum efficiency at impact.

This driver should suit golfers who like a compact driver to help shape shots and have a quick swing speed.
