  1. My vote is for the SIK face. In years past, I used a soft face Odyssey 7. It was ok, but I never had what i'd call confidence with the putter. I knew I liked the soft face rather than the hard face putters, but I'm not sure it really showed up in performance numbers. Last year I decided to try an arm lock, and I bought the Odyssey Big 7 stroke lab. That had a soft face with the micro hinges, but I still had problems on any long putts. I think the arm lock style is deadly from short range but on anything long that putter would Pop the ball up in the air, which messed with my distance control. Because I couldn't handle long putts with it I gave it up and tried an 35" Evnroll putter. While I rather liked the gravity grip, I wasn't in love with the putter itself. Then Cobra came out with their arm lock sik face 3D printed putters. I had to try it. I love the thing. I'm as good short range as I was with the big seven but I don't have any of the same problems popping up long distance putts as I did with that big 7 putter. I credit that to the sik face. No matter how I approach it even at length the roll is very pure. This is the first time in a long time where within a couple of months I wasn't itching to get another putter. I can see keeping this for a long time. That's my two cents, take it or leave it.
  2. I am currently playing some Custom irons from Maltby. They are a decent club really. I like them, but Would like to see what these Cobra's feel like. (I am LOVING my Armlock 3d Printed Grandsport/ Maybe with the irons and the putter I could become a Cobra Guy.. My only other experience with Cobra Irons was the F8 Single Length and the single length experiment just wasn't for me.
  3. My vote is YES.. I don't carry one. Never had success with it. I rarely use my 56 either (But I don't play a courses with a lot of sand bunkers). I think that the transition from 56 to 60, somewhere in that loft range, is where I see shots that tend to slip up the face and end up short, or I blade them across the green because I had to swing harder than I am comfortable with from short distance.
  4. Moonwood (LOL), only kinda joking. I don't have one, but I played around with one and kinda liked it.
  5. Go and try the Kirklands from Costco. You really can't find much better of a deal for the price (not even close) and it is a performance urethane covered ball.
  6. Michael W. Rochester, NY Walk 50% (play twice a week, walk once) I use an old motokaddy
  7. Michael/Rochester, NY Have You Ever Used a Hitting Net: Yes. A cheapie off Groupon. Blasted through the seems (and I am not a big hitter) Do you use any sort of LM with one. Yes, I used the Rapsodo with it.
  8. Michael/Rochester New York RH 1st Choice Driving Iron - UiHi 18* - KBS Tour 90 Regular 2nd Choice Hybrids – VKTR+ 18* - Recoil ES 75 F3 Regular Handicap- 22 I currently use a Wilson Deep Red Hybrid
  9. Michael Woodruff/Rochester, NY/USA Current Putter in Use: Wilson Infinite Bucktown (I do like it) I would love to try the Tyne 3. I like my Bucktown Fang Putter. I definitely prefer mallet over blade, and face balanced suits me well. I think the Tyne 3 would be pretty ideal for my game.
  10. Michael Woodruff in Rochester NY, Playing about 2x a week until October Currently use a Garmin Vivoactive 3. It has a golf app, but not as in depth as the Garmin S series watches. I get yardage to front, middle and back of green from my watch
