  1. Not yet, however, I’ve never been able to cut the entire corner off this dogleg, but I’m going to try it in my next round, and hopefully the added speed with the driver will make it possible.
  2. Hey all y’all #venomspitters I remembered how to strike a ball today! 4 iron and 3 wood off the tee was a deadly combination. I’ve never played this conservatively in my life, it was way more stress free than usual. The driver never even left the bag. FIR 9/11 GIR 12/18 Burgers: 6
  3. Fat shots definitely perform better, it keeps me from digging too much. Those are some seriously nice numbers! Happy to hear the Xtreme is really working well for you! That said... what is wrong with the rest of your game?
  4. I concur with this as well, I’ve noticed it both on the irons and woods. I almost exclusively use wood tees, and can say there is definitely more, at least on my irons. They do come off pretty easily and it helps me determine my swing path... LOL My previous driver had a glossy underside and the same thing happened. Haha, I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t put that much thought into it! But since I have a membership at my course, most of my rounds will be played there.
  5. That’s a good question, coming from a utility iron, I’m happy I tried the hybrid and fairly happy with the results. That said I hit 50% of fairway with the hybrid as opposed to 65% with the iron. However, the hybrid is much more forgiving and less of a specialized tee club. I lose a lot less distance on mishits than I did with the iron. I think they really both have a very realistic role in the bag. I don’t see it being a one or the other type thing.
  6. As long as you wipe it down, it seems to hold up fine. When it gets a bit dirty, a wet towel easily does the trick.
  7. I’ve not really had any issue out of the rough, I do really like the rails on both the 3W and hybrid, it’s nice to have a little bit of a “chunk guard”. Obviously they won’t help extremely bad shots, but with shots that are a little bit fat, it really still saves some good distance.
  8. Yeah, that sounds pretty similar to my results, some minor errors here and there, but I correct those once I get home, and we all correct them before we submit our scores for the week.
  9. I’ll post my gory stats for today, although I’ll spare you most of the expletives and minor existential crisis. It was another day where I wish the scorecard didn’t have pictures. Started to get some better feels on the last few holes, so fingers crossed for my next few rounds.
  10. Nice shot, nice hole, and nice round! I dunno, my ball striking has been in $hitter the last two days, and you know no one else can put up those numbers... so maybe. I’ve still got a few more opportunities though, and now I have a number to beat. (I’m sure you’ll enjoy that eloquent writing @Lacassem!)
  11. Yep, you definitely understand... I had the 3W 1° lofted up, but I put it back at neutral after the 2nd round. I’ll definitely try changing it more, I need something to start clicking. Not really, the club is just too far behind me in the downswing, and I’m lifting up at impact, and I’m hitting these topspin hooks. Maybe I’ll see about a lesson or two with the pro at my club.
  12. It is said, that the scorecard shows no pictures... unfortunately with Arccos, there are pictures.
  13. At this point, I’d say swing fault. I’m definitely coming too far from the inside (my other miss is a big push), and saving the shot by flipping the club the to the left with my hands. I’m pretty sure I just need to keep my upper body and torso rotating a bit more, but I’m struggling with commuting to that. Awesome!!! Definitely keep us updated on how the One Length experiment goes for you! You do know, that we’ll have you ordering the rest of the bag before this challenge is over...
  14. Now, I can tell you that my round today will NOT be the one I submit for this weeks challenge! I’ll spare you the gory details (I was 0fer for greens and fairways through 7 holes...), however, I do have a nominee for best/worst par, and a hole in which I hit two fairways, neither of which were mine.
  15. CCC4 OFFICIAL WOODS REVIEW Preface Its time to go long or go home!! We’re starting out with a bang (or should I say bomb!). Let’s review the big sticks! As a reminder, I’m gaming the SZ 9° driver, the SZ 3 wood and SZ 3 hybrid. All of these are Tour Length, which is making quite a positive impact on my game. Well, I’d be upset if my first sentence didn’t include the word speed, because, let’s face it, Cobra has built their big sticks around speed. Do they live up to the hype? Read on and find out! Looks These are hands down some of the best looking woods on the market. I absolutely love the matte white color. That said, I really wish I could’ve matched my hybrid with the driver and 3 wood. Yes, I know that’s mainly my OCD talking, but still... That small complaint aside, the matte carbon fiber crown, the white accent, with the red weights creates a beautiful and classy looking club. Coming from the *ahem* very red Wilson Staff C300, the Cobras are an improvement in almost every way. Looks - 5/5 stars Sound & Feel This section is always the one I struggle with the most. It’s just so hard to quantify something so subjective, and then adequately explain it. @edingc did a wonderful job with his videos demonstrating the sound of the SZ. (Credit where credit is due.) I also can’t better describe the feelings of the driver and 3 wood. As he said, the driver has a very nice, reverberating, crack to it, while the 3W has a more solid thwack when flushed, but feels a little hollow when mishit. I’ll also say the hybrid sounds & feels a little “pingy” and rather hollow. Sound & Feel - 3/5 stars (To break it down, the driver would be 5/5, the 3W is 3/5 and the hybrid is 2/5.) Performance For all the talk about looks, sound, and feel, this is the section that really, really matters. I’m a bit conflicted about this section, because, my good shots, are very, very good. My strikes are more consistently near the middle of the face, but I’m struggling with an ugly left miss with both the driver and 3W. I’ll say this, the SZ is rather forgiving when it comes to ball speed. This shot was hit well off the toe, still ended up being really good. Not to mention, this driver has produced some absolute BOMBS! I just need this to happen more frequently! The hybrid has been a go to club of mine since it has joined my bag, it’s super consistent, very forgiving, and most importantly, isn’t going left!! I’m really loving the hybrid right now, very easy to hit out of any lie, and surprisingly workable. Overall, my distance is up, my overall fairways hit is up, but my misses are much uglier. I dunno how to grade that, so I’ll give it 4 stars. Performance - 4/5 stars Play it OR Trade it Can I get a time extension on this question? I’m just not sure yet. Arccos says my driving handicap is going down, so I guess that’s good, but dang, I’m just not comfortable with the driver and 3W yet. If I can start making more good swings, then these might be in the bag for a long time. The hybrid will probably be staying for a while, it might be on a rotation schedule with my 2 iron depending on wind and corse conditions. I’m going with 3 stars for now, however, hopefully with some time this rating can and will increase. Play it OR Trade it - 3/5 stars Overall These are very good clubs, don’t let my uncertain review convince you otherwise. These can compete with any of the bigger companies woods. I’m just fighting my swing a bit right now, and it just isn’t translating into confidence. I’ll provide more follow up about these in a few weeks when I have a few more rounds under my belt. But for now, I’ll give the 3 stars, with and asterisk denoting massive potential. Overall - 3/5 stars
