What have you bought lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

No casey. Should my testing of the two the Fly-Z models prove to be non-starters then I'll keep playing my SLDR as is. There is no need to make any changes in that club. I'll go out later today and work with both of them a bit. Then tomorrow I'm going to select either the FZ+ or FZ and play 18 with it. We'll see.

Good point, if it ain't broke...

My problem is it is when I don't get a chance to play ( like the last 5 months) I keep connected by tinkering

Which makes NO sense whatsoever , but that's how my mind works

PJ, be sure and try the Fly Z+ with the weight in the rear....not quite the same as the Fly Z and more like the Cobra King LTD...according to some reviews I have read.

 

I have been experimenting and find that I really like the Fly Z + especially with the Paderson Kinetix shaft. Getting 10-20 yes more than my Bio Cell.

Just got back from more testing with the Cobras. FZ and FZ+. I also had my SLDR gamer along as my reference driver. Well, today both Cobras lose out to my SLDR. I'm guessing perhaps if I go any further I'll need to try some higher launching shafts. The green shafts are low launching which I didn't know prior to last night. The Blue shaft is mid-height. I've also moved the weighting around front/rear position on the FZ+. I just can't get a similar ball flight to my SLDR which I love and which is reliable. Most of my shots with the Cobras are lower flight and I tend to hit them right. More like a push. Not a slice. It's possible I just got lucky with the SLDR since it's a stock OTR club so to speak. This SLDR is the one I got from MGS for a review a couple of years ago. Like many guys have said.... Why change?

See, I didn't get along with the SLDR. I played it for 4-6 months and just wasn't near as consistent as my LCG.

You have one of those drivers that's just impossible to ever beat it seems.

46 tries, 46 failures... Lol. I'm trying to find more of these heads now... The SLDR was close. I played it a while. Seems like I'd occasionally hit it in a dead spot on the face or something cause it's feel like it was nuked and then I'd get to the ball and think that's it... That and it just wasn't as controllable for me. I just hate seeing the fixed hosel continuing to go bye bye... That might be part of it, the bulkier hosel in the sight picture

A couple weeks ago I hit the Cobra King LTD driver at Golfsmith....Wow! it felt so good.....I was driving it 2- to 30 yards farther than the fly z on the launch Monitor.......BUT the price was $292 and that was a little steep for me.....However, I have been dreaming about the Cobra King ever since....and every time I see the cobra Ad on TV, Bam! I am thinking about it.does this qualify as "What have you bought lately?"

Thanks, if it weren't for the prices I would have left well enough alone...lol. I just had to do it. My old irons are almost 10 years old and my hybrids about 16 years old. It was definitely time.

I have a 60 deg Cleveland Lob and I have a tendency to get too far under it.  I am hoping the 58 Smart Sole will help me out much more.
