    Ok. So the other competitors know my Arccos handicap has been messed up this whole time. I’ve been back and forth with the Arccos support people, we’ve finally got it figured out. The course rating and slope rating was wrong for my home course. Now that we got that straightened out my pre Cobra Arccos handicap was 14.7. I’ll give them that, they’ll work hard to figure out any problems you have with their system.

    That's really good to see. That was a concern for me, but dedicated customer service is a huge plus for any company.

  2. I really love the look of these, but it does bug me that they nixed the SC, that was by far my favorite of the 3 and replacing that with a hollow club seems to leave a large gap between the MB and MMC.

    Decision time:

    Player A: averages 41.22 points per event, made 18/23 cuts, 5 T25s and 4 T10s.

    Player B: averages 34.4 points per event, made 8/15 cuts, 4 T25s, 2 T10s, 2 T3s, and 1 W.

    Basically, Player A is getting me consistent points, but Player B statistically (and historically) has a much higher ceiling. Player B isn't someone I wanted on my team, but I felt like I had to draft him when he was available. I didn't want him specifically for this reason: he's a high volatility guy, with a low floor and a high ceiling.

    So who are you going with? Got your pick locked in before I tell you the names? I've got Player A in my lineup now.

    Player A is Joaquin Niemann. Player B is Phil.

    Tough call, the math says Neimann, but it's a definite risk reward scenario.

    So here we are at the end of week 5 and it's time for my opinion on the fairway wood and hybrid.

    Right the three wood first. This was the easiest club for me to get to grips with and the one I was certain I would like. In my opinion Cobra have been making some of the best performing and easiest to hit fairway woods that money can buy. In fact the club that this 3 wood was competing against was the F7 model. I had that club set at 13.5* and it was a rocket. With the F9 I initially set it up the same but soon discovered that 14.5* was the optimal loft for me. It's an easy club to hit high, low fade and draw. I can hit it from the tee, rough, fairway, bare dirt, in fact almost any lie. The rails on the bottom just make it to darn easy to hit 😁😎

    Ok now the interesting one, the 3 hybrid.

    I came into this contest excited about every club in the bag bar one. I have never found a hybrid that I can consistently hit well and in the right direction. It was so bad that I had given up and had bought a 2 iron. I had fallen for that club and thought it was the one guaranteed to return to my bag at the end of this. 

    When the club arrived I thought it looked great and sat well at address but I had been fooled before. I took it out to the course and it started well. Nice height and shot shape appeared but still that has happened before. I thought the horrible hooks will be here soon. Then I realized that we were three weeks into the challenge and I was still hitting this club really well. In fact it has become a go to club for difficult shots, lay ups, tricky tee shots and even the odd chip. It's easy to hit low draws around trees, high blasts from the fairway, lovely tee shots into long par threes that stop like irons. It is my favorite club in the bag and I don't say that lightly. If you are a player that struggles with long irons you have to try these hybrids. I think they will bring joy back to your long game 😍😁

    Cobra continues to impress, I'm usually in the same boat you are, with not being able to hit hybrids. It's intriguing to hear review where the ball doesn't hook. I might have to try these out. Also, the Baffler rails are usually a big selling point for most people, do you feel like they help you at all?

    Yeah, I'm reading a bunch of reviews right now, and most of them a strongly positive. I think it's easy to get the RTX-3 CB confused with the CBX—both are bigger than an ordinary bladed wedge, but it's the CBX that is the larger of the two.

    From what I've read, the CB wedges are good with chips and pitches, which is what I'm most interested in. In a sense, I'm more intrigued by the Cleveland sole than I even am by the cavity features.

    Yes, forgiveness on chips and pitches is often overlooked on wedges. That's actually one of the top features I look for in a wedge. If it doesn't preform well when chipping it isn't worth using!

    The biggest thing keeping me from a single digit cap is my short game. I know it's me and not my clubs. But I'm intrigued by the potential forgiveness offered by the Cleveland RTX-3 CB wedges. This is a great price and I have a birthday coming up.

    Talk me into it or out of it.

    DO IT!!  Can't pass them up at that price. 

     

    And, if you really want talked out of it, you should've come somewhere else.

    Thanks good Sir!

    I have already gotten the “he’s got a 2 iron” look... emoji15.png

    Still have their covers from the factory. Going to stitch up some “leather” vinyl covers for when I ride in a cart. The 3 iron already has a little chatter dent, not sure how it happened I put the covers back on.

     

    That's a fun look to get. 😁

     

    Also, do these have the Hydropearl finish? If so, how has it held up? That's been one of my chief complaints with my I200s, how easily they wear.

    I have a commercial pilot in my congregation. I can assure you that the pilot flies the plane. Certainly there are lots of automated things happening but in the end you need the pilot to take off, land, exercise altitude or flight path changes.

    Good, that definitely makes me feel better.

    I heard that the planes land themselves now? Don't know if that eases your discomfort or not?

     

    Personally, I hate flying as well but it's because I get sick and Benadryl/Dramamine doesn't always work, especially if there's turbulence.

    To be honest, knowing that no one on the plane has control of it, and that I'm relying on a program to land a plane makes it worse. I mean, I know flying is safer than driving, but it just seems unatural. It also doesn't help that my #1 fear is heights.

    By the way - Congrats on hitting 3,000! 

    Thanks, I didn't even notice! I guess I just get caught up in talking (some say too much) with y'all!

  11. I am not a great flyer. I do it when I have to, but I definitely don't enjoy it. Strangely my biggest mental hurdles are takeoff and landing. Once we are at cruising altitude I feel pretty safe, but I definitely have butterflies when landing and taking off.

  12. Wow, congrats Shanks! Couldn't have picked a better person to do this review!! I'm really curious about these as I love my I200 short irons but am not a huge fan of the long irons. Maybe a reverse combo set?!?!

     

    Now... about this 2 iron... I can't imagine how good it feels to flush one. I'm also happy to see PING making a 2 iron, as they are becoming harder and harder to find. (Yes, I know the modern day 4 iron is a traditional 2 iron, but now isn't the time for that discussion.)
