I went back through 30 pages of this forum, didn't see 1 thread about this club. Just looking for opinions on it.

No but I use an F7 and have F7 FW and hybrids as well.  I don't think they changed much except the weighting system.

I also have the F7 but I tried the F8 at the same time and there didn’t seem much different so I went the the less expensive. I also felt the same way about the hybrid but I got the F8 because it was my birthday and I deserved it.

I bought the F8 this spring and love it. Off-center shots don't hurt you as much and it has a nice solid sound when struck. I initially got it with a stock regular shaft (Mitsubishi - Bassara E-Series 42) but recently had a chance to test it with a stiff shaft (Aldila NV-65S) and it really lowered the ball flight to a more reasonable angle (15* vs 18*) and lower spin rate. 

HTH!

Ordered a F8 tour length a week ago, delivered yesterday, took it to the course today. Never having hit it before I had one of my best driving games in a long, long time. It wasn't really longer than the M2 I had, but it was definitely much, much easier to find the fairway.

I play the F8+ and I really like it. 3 things that made me purchase it.

1 - It was only $299, including custom fitting and I had a $60 off coupon which could not be used with Taylormade, Ping, Calloway, or Titleist. I ended up getting fitted into a Project X, black, shaft 70/6. 

2 - I'm a big fan of Arccos. Getting fit into a midsized grip that came with Cobra Connect was a no brainer. 

3 - It is almost impossible to put an idiot mark on this driver. My driver miss is often a shoulder drop, sky ball off the top of the driver head. Every time I trade in a driver it has at least one idiot mark on the top. 

I tried the F8 regular and hated it. Way too draw biased for my taste. Everything was either left or more left. The F8+, on the other hand, was perfect for me. I will say this, the sound takes some getting used to. It's very muted, almost silent. 

Overall, I really like the F8+.

    • I’m quite honest in saying I don’t know wtf  either of you are talking about. But damn...Erik making a hell of a better argument for those of us trying to learn something....just sayin....
    • There is no final report, as that will take weeks. The rear of the car sheared off when the front hit, not the halo. The halo then wedged itself in the barrier, but if it had more than a little speed left at that point it would have just gone completely through it and a ways through the other side. "The International Automobile Federation (FIA) expected its investigation to take six to eight weeks." And anyone could see that the survival cell went THROUGH the barrier, just not very far.A little of the barrier may have been above his head when he was trying to exit, but he was on the other side of the barrier, which is why he had to hop over it to get to safety. Had he been lodged in the barrier, he'd have probably died. Had the car been without a halo, he'd have probably died.
    • I was going to tell him to use his elbows more and rock his shoulders (and thus his head) less.
    • Dude.. you don't know WTF you're talking about.... Just stop. Stop. Read the F1's GD report... 
    • Oh she's already expanded it to a full week. I think she reads about it on the female secret Slack channel.
