Doubt I will ever go back to steel in my irons. Such a worthwhile purchase, especially if you can get somewhere like TrueSpec to try a bunch of different options.

Did you have graphite in your wedges prior to the Edel test?

Yes, I had/have MMT 105TX wedge shafts in the Cobra MIMs. I really liked those shafts too, but the SteelFibers have a bit more feel for me and paired with the Hogans they are buttery.

Very little wrist, elbow or shoulder pain this season, and that's even with beating 500+ balls per week in the winter off of a FiberBuilt mat.

Stingers incoming!  Going to give the U505 a shot. Went with the 1 iron??? 😬 Same build as the T200 3- and 4-irons that have been treating me well -- Graphite Design Tour AD IZ-95X shaft. Goal was to swap out the 3w (really struggling with FW woods lately...). The T200 3i is 20°, and my options were 16° or 18° in U505, or 17° T200 - since it's a 3w replacement that's mostly going to be used off the tee anyway, 16° felt like the right play. 

 

PXL_20220713_014431272.jpg.393b63787baa41ac6b3b2d13adf6c72e.jpg

 

Also picked up a handful of Golf Pride CPX grips -- my SuperSpeed grips started tearing up my hands, so wanted something soft for that, and just added a couple extra because I had some money left on a gift card. Used them for one session, and they are niiice, so I threw one on the U505 too. Maybe this will finally be the grip that gets me off the MCC (a few dollars cheaper than MCC too).

... Aside from the performance benefits, graphite iron shafts have been a lifesaver for minor injuries or tendonitis from over use. I have to think it would help younger players avoid those types of injuries and for older players that know the body doesn't recover like it did in our youth, it is a no brainer. Unfortunately steel iron shafts have become almost as expensive as graphite or so close in cost the difference is negligible.

HUGE thanks to Cobra/Puma. I did own (still do) to these. I received them as a gift a while back. Love these shoes! Well after about 6 or so months, the left shoe developed a tear in the heel. Last week I decided to email Cobra just for kicks. I sent them pics of the tear and let them know that I didn't have a receipt due to them being a gift. I also let them know that if they couldn't do anything about it I'd totally understand. 

Well being as awesome as they are, they sent me the updated shoe and told me to keep the other pair. 

 

... While there are those out there trying to scam a company out of free stuff, the OEMs that understand excellent customer service develop customers for a lifetime become, as you said "my shoe loyalties definitely lie with Puma."  Long story short I owned a Camero and 1 week after the warranty expired, the heater started leaking a corrosive fluid onto my passenger floorboard and burned a hole through the carpet before I knew it was happening. An obvious manufacturing defect but they said it was out of warranty and therefore I had to pay for the repair. I contacted Chevy and received the same response. One F#@^%g week! I had looked at a rotary engine Mazda RX 7 and just to see how they would handle it, I called the Mazda dealer and said I had the same corrosion problem with my RX7 but it was out of warranty by a month. They said no problem, bring it in and we will take care of the repair with no charge because it shouldn't have happened in the first place. I sold the Camero and bought an RX7.

Safe to say my shoe loyalties definitely lie with Puma. 

New kicks

Previous are in the middle. They're practically new except for the tear which I was also able to find an adhesive patch for.

Thanks Cobra/Puma!!

Well that is interesting, I have worn through the heel on two pairs of similar Pumas over the last couple of years despite the shoes being in otherwise great shape still...I had moved on to try out the Truelinks shoes (love them), but cool to see they are providing that level of service even for soft goods.

In my single years, my roommate had an RX7. I drove a 4x4 so we'd always swap cars. What a fun ride! And kudos to Mazda for sure!

I had an issue with a cobra driver a few years back and it was no different. No back and forth, no haggling, no hassle at all. They sent me a driver head 2 years newer. Because of the way they handle business, there will forever be a space for a cobra club in my bag.

.. When I was a DJ in Chicago I took a job with an ex fellow employe in Ft Piece Fl for better wages, a 5 day work week and of course the ocean and warm weather. Got there and hated everything about it from the sleepy retirement community to the radio station. Worked one afternoon shift and turned around and drove back to Chicago. The RX7 was a ton of fun as I was in it several days and when I got back to Chicago just inside the city limits, I got a speeding ticket right where it drops from 65 to 55 and a speed trap. To his credit, the cop saw my car was packed with my stuff and when I told him I spent one day in FL and missed Chicago he said show up for court and he would make sure the ticket was thrown out. And he did. AS you know that rotary engine was so smooth it was easy to speed as it always felt like you weren't traveling that fast. Imagine I will have the same problem when my Genesis GV60 EV finally arrives going 0-60 in 4.8 seconds without a sound. 🤪

I had another friend years ago with an M3 who also would swap me for my truck. He had it all juiced up with a chip and other goodies. That thing was a whole other level of fast . For me anyway 😋

If I recall, it was a sub 4.5 0-60 with the aftermarket stuff. 6 speed manual that drove on rails. Talk about a butt puckering experience
