COBRA CONNECT 5

 

 

Cobra Connect 5 Challenge partnered with Arccos, all participants receive a 13 club Cobra bag and will take part in various challenges.  To broaden the reach of the line, the competition will consist of four Radspeed sets of clubs as well as  two King Tour MIM sets! The full bag includes a players choice of:

  • Driver
  • Hybrids/FW
  • Irons-either Radspeed or King Tour MIM (must choose one on your entry)
  • Wedges
  • Cobra Ultralite Stand Bag

This years event will be a team format, with 3 players on each team.  There be weekly or bi weekly challenges for teams and/or individual challenges.  

Prizes will be awarded for each challenge and for the overall winners. 

Team Captains

We also have a fun addition in adding team Captains, but not just any Team Captains.

Team Chad-Chad DeHart - Manager, Product & Innovation @ Cobra Golf

Team Yags-Mike Yagley - VP, Innovation/AI @ Cobra Golf

Both Chad and Yags will be following the competition closely, and may or may not have a side bet or two between them on the results.   

And don't be surprised if depending on circumstances and availability, the Captains may jump in with their respective teams one week for the competition.

Congrats on a once in a lifetime opportunity! Not gonna lie.. as a cobra fan my jealousy levels are a bit maxed out 😜

Working directly with Cobra throughout this process and knowing that your input will likely impact future designs and the way Cobra continues to be a true "consumer brand" is the real value here. 

Can't wait to follow along!

That would be my guess. 
 

I have always been intrigued by the One Length as I tend to struggle with my long irons more than I would like.  I do hit my 7/8 iron well more often than not.  The Radspeed doesn’t seem like a good fit for my game but the MIM Tour sound perfect. That’s what kept me from choosing OL. 
 

No matter who is chosen this is gonna be a fun follow for sure!

Without question it will be fun to follow along regardless of who is chosen. Always is. The team aspect is different and I really like it. Adds a new element and somehow they keep finding ways to make this new and exciting every season.

Would love to get into this test. Just activated the sensor on my Cobra driver, would really get into the testing competition as my league starts shortly.

I just want to say this sounds like SO MUCH FUN!  This year I will turn 48.  I am committed to taking my handicap solidly below 5 (3.. 4... lower ?) by the time I turn 50.  I have a full membership at the local course and have blocked out time for golf with full support from my wife (she's so awesome).  This is after a few years off because of parental obligations.  I'm an 11 playing to about 17 in those first few rounds.  I JUST started using Arccos sensors and have 3 rounds under my belt.  It's new and totally awesome to me but so far they have worked really well.  I have a lot of flexibility and enough time to commit to this.  I'm just dying to try one length, but I chose the MIM for now because the traditional variable length clubs is what I'm using for now.  I would probably commit to the one length if that got me on a team and if the wedges are also one length matched to the irons. (looks like they can be ordered up like that on the website).  Either way is good for me.  Anyway, I built up a bag although if there's limits on shafts etc I can make other choices.  I know this isn't the application, but just wanted to throw this up there in case someone looks through and it helps in some way.  Anyway, thanks to Cobra and MGS for this opportunity and "pick me, pick me, pick me!!!"

(LOL, after spending a bunch of time making a bag up on the website and trying to post it here, MGS called my post forbidden SPAM!!!) So I had to delete it.

Not sure what I am in for if selected, but bring it on. This lefty would love to see how one length irons work for me, so that is what I selected.

And we still have 3 days left of signups! I signed up Friday morning and we were still in the 50’s for total signups.  
 

Im hoping at least a 1/3 of the signups stick around for the competition/banter throughout the testing.  The trash talking could be epic!

Same I looked at the one length, but sadly not there. I would have loved to taken part of last season with the one length forged tec. Those are irons I have always liked and got along with. However I've also owned both the AMP Cell and FlyZ Blades which are truly incredible so the King Tour could be a perfect cross between them. 
I also wonder for the teams if we will see one King Tour MIM, one Rad Speed Regular, one Rad Speed One length per team? 

I have been pretty intrigued about the ine lengths as well but not sure I could get used to that especially getting close to wedges.

loved swinging @B.Bostonforged tecs last year (and if I didn’t buy 790s I would have bought those for sure) very interested in these mims

This is the best contest of the year - LOVE seeing how these play out - would obviously be even more fun to be a part of it! Good luck, all, and to both eventual teams!

Great idea guys! I’ve been wondering about ARCCOS lately. Had a chance to use it once at Streamsong, but the connection failed. I hope I get another chance to see how it works!

Also off topic but not sure if anyone else is on Tapatalk but I can't seem to find the Test thread anywhere. 

You can't get to the testing threads through tapatalk;   the testing threads aren't really a forum area.

I legit can't get the MIMs out of my head...I keep thinking about them! I am really interested in the test and how they play for those lucky testers!

 

PEOPLE! if you're interested in these clubs and testing that will go into this (which is a lot) please don't forget to follow the test! Just hit the switch at the bottom!

Always been a fan of Cobra, lets see if the new Radspeed lives up to the Cobra reputation. This sounds like an awesome contest.

Has time slowed for anyone else? Is it just me?! 

100% not just you. With no fantasy Golf, no F1, CC5 on the horizon and 2 long days at work it seems as time may be at a stand still... Almost like watching water freeze (those who know me will get it)

Do you have a link to the 2020 or 2019 ones?  I was curious what the different contests are.

Fantastic - looks like a lot of fun.  I did do a search but just kept coming up with the announcement and the entry thread - probably because I used the year instead of #3 or #4.
