  1. Broke my toe while photographing a 10U baseball game at the end of September. Emulsion fracture on my big toe and the small chip isn’t healing so docs will not be cutting the chip out and anchoring the tendon down to my foot…
  2. Thanks! Thank you I couldn’t find anything on the black one, kept seeing the white
  3. My dad has a G410lst and this shaft. It’s an Adilia Rip 70g stiff. This much I know. Having trouble figuring out what shaft though because it has the green eyes, instead of the red I keep finding. Anyways it broke today and he wants to find a replacement. He’s older with slower swing speed but stiff in the shaft did work really well for him. so can anyone tell me a similar shaft I can pick up for him?
  4. Went with the bxs… couldn’t get out to play before I had to order, so we’ll see
  5. Everything is steep angle of attack, I do have a pretty solid slice. I like the AVX the most but had a bunch of promo ProV1 from a friend so that’s why both. Strength is short game. Swing speed is right around that 105 divide. did Bridgestones ball fitter online and said B X
  6. Played in a charity outing at Laurel Valley in PA. Didn’t realize how prestigious it was. That being said it was the hardest course I have ever played. The greens were the fastest I’ve ever seen. Normally I am a decent putter (avg 31 putts per round) and I couldn’t hit a putt to save my life. Beautiful course though
  7. So I was lucky enough to get $200 free from Bridgestone to get balls, I’m not really familiar with their lineup. Anyone have any reactions or thoughts. Currently playing the older ProV1 or AVX, shot shape is high and right. I get good backspin due to my sharp attack angle. I read the reviews from the white box testing but just looking for anyone else input
  8. I like my ball to be minimalist with things on it, even to mark it, I just put a green dot on the number. Too much of a logo or other printing I find distracting
  9. @gavinski91 comin through strong for MGS on his challenge! Very commendable, if I get my 7 iron I’ll swing away!
  10. Removed the black from my wedges, loving the raw look! Thanks @jlukes for the help on how to do it. I think may need a little more scrubbing
  11. It is a much bigger gap that what I had before, I had a 52* instead of a 3 wood. I am happy with the 3 wood but about 70 yards to 100 I have no club, so it’s trying to half or 3/4 swing the gap wedge
  12. Without my irons it’s hard to say but I think I’d take out the 3 hybrid and give a better gapping at the other end, I go from 46* to 56* and there’s a big distance gap
  13. If you reach your goal, you can use any extra for my irons I’m still waiting on!
  14. So there I was hole 15 of the legendary English Turn (World Tour in Myrtle Beach), par 5, island green awaiting at the end. Softly hit driver, only 188 yards off the tee. Still 221 yards out, over the water… I pull out my trusty (well learning to trust it) Cobra Rad Speed Tour 3 wood. BOOM! Hit it perfect, the ball sails over the water hits the front edge of the green rolls up about 15 feet away. Can I Eagle it? Line up my putt, perfect speed and line and of course it stops just shy for a tap on birdie. Can I just say I’m in love with the 3 wood today! finished the day with a respectable 93
  15. Tale of two 9’s today… front 9; play smart hit 3 wood/hybrid off tee, 54! Back 9; pull out the driver and bomb away, 43! The air was humid and I felt like the ball wasn’t traveling as far, I started clubbing up 2 clubs and it helped me a lot.
  16. I mean it makes sense for me, although I hate the idea of not using a driver. I’d get 30/40 yards closer but could end in trouble and I hit the ball long enough with hybrids or low irons to make up that. Just found it interesting.
  17. Planning on playing Kings North in Myrtle tomorrow and figured I’d look at the caddie preview on arccos. Found it interesting that it rarely has me using my driver off the tee, mostly using my 5 iron off the tee based on its recommendation unless it’s a par 5 and even then all but one it has 4 iron. Assuming it’s taking in to consideration my driver isn’t very accurate?
  18. Got out for 9 with my dad, drove the ball better. The wedges are slowly becoming my favorites. 3 wood was off today though, couldn’t get much distance
  19. Bag came today! Really liking it! Much lighter than my old bag!
  20. I’ve played World Tour before so I know it’s going to be up there but I just love that course! Have to go for the island, why play there if you don’t.
  21. Has anyone ever played at Kings North? Thoughts on it? I am playing World Tour and want to play another course while I’m in Myrtle Beach and leaning to kings north.
  22. This was my problem with the driver as well, however when I kept it in play I was bombing it. Same for you?
  23. While they may be getting to the “paid” orders first, how much positive or negative marketing is this generating for them? If you were considering a cobra club and saw the delay and also not being able to read the reviews, how likely are you to go out and drop $400 on it? I think that’s where frustration from non participants comes from. From the competitors, it’s the excitement and delay that’s killing us, then to not get the clubs we wanted and in @jlukes case shafts that aren’t compatible with him, it’s frustrating…
  24. They did not say how long lead times were originally, that being said the shafts were communicated to us to pick other shafts because of long leads after our orders. That being said, I am still running to the door when the FedEx truck goes by like a kid on Christmas! Knowing how the transportation industry is right now, I am not surprised by delays on anything. It’s a vicious cycle, manufacturer’s can’t get the raws shipped to them because of a shortage of freight, no raws means no products to ship, yet there is still a major freight availability shortage
