@dlow206 how do y’all get rewards points? I like free stuff!

It used to be easier; Visit the callaway site get points, watch a video get points, listen to a podcast get points.   I got a lot of points that way but they changed the process this year and now it is based on purchases.

More than likely stock builds and custom builds are coming from different locations and things like staffing at the facilities as well as volume of orders have an effect

One thing I will say with Callaway, even during the pandemic, they underpromise on shipping ETA and then overdeliver. I had things say a couple weeks ETA and they show up within like 5 business days or less. I feel like the custom stuff actually comes quicker. It comes from Mexico with the super fast shipping. The stuff shipped from the US comes regular UPS Ground. 


it just seems odd when you look at shipping times and based on the configuration the dates are different; especially when you are just looking at changing a shaft.  Upgraded sounds like it should take longer  
 

I’ll probably order no matter the delivery;  free is a good way to experiment 😁

It’s been awhile since I’ve ordered anything Callaway but from what I remember stock predominantly comes out of mexico and sometimes cali. Custom I believe comes out of cali only and possibly texas

But free is alway good regardless of how long it takes

Been thinking about a wedge with a graphite shaft.  @dlow206 mentioned that he had spent some Callaway rewards points so I went and saw that I have enough to get a wedge.  For the wedge I want it is 6-8 weeks.  It was interesting that I played around with the configurations and depending on the shaft I pick, it could be 1-8 weeks;  why would a custom configuration ship quicker than an in stock model?   It isn't the shaft,  because I could get the same shaft in a different loft in 1-2 weeks.   I guess they don't make the clubs to order???

Things are really weird still...coming out of this pandemic and all.  When I was ordering my Srixon irons, if I selected a full set then it would only give me the S-flex option for the stock shaft...but if I customized the set (just wanting to adjust the shaft length) then that same shaft wasn't available in the custom options.  So, I had to load each iron individually into the cart to get the shafts I needed, in the length I needed them in...I guess that's why it took 3 different shipments to get all of my irons.

I had tried an RTX when they first came out with graphite shafts as a stock offering and I wasn't a huge fan of the feel. That said, I'm sure that shafts are better designed to really feel like a wedge with newer releases.

Somewhat equipment related, but my Arccos subscription is due to renew in 10 days and I'm trying to decide what direction to go:

  1. Stay with Arccos
  2. Either GolfMetrics or DECADE
  3. Quit Tracking

I know I don't want a watch like ShotScope, even a smaller one like v3. Arccos has been so fiddly this year for me. Some rounds it works pretty well, other rounds it's just awful. I end up spending too much time worrying about it working and I think it's hindering my focus a bit. I shut it off after the first hole Monday and played one of my better mental rounds of the year.

DECADE is roughly the same cost as Arccos for the first six month Foundations course and I can get strokes gained analysis and the like from it. GolfMetrics is a little cheaper but doesn't have the DECADE content, obviously.

I really hate to quit tracking as I think there is a lot of value in strokes gained in looking at what areas need improvement, but I also think that during most rounds the worst part of my gain is readily apparent.

I was reading Mike Carroll's (Fit for Golf) post about him going from a 5 to +1 in a year and he used GolfMetrics for the majority of his tracking. I'm seeing some good progress on the course but really am searching for what can push me over the top and get past this hump where I'll match great rounds with miserable rounds. Stat tracking only plays a small part of that - but right now I don't feel like I'm getting a lot of value out of Arccos.

I get some ppl don't like wearing watches (like shotscope). But I'll give my experience bc I've been very pleased with the shotscope v3 and it was my favorite golf purchase in the last few years. Best thing off the bat is price vs arccos, much rather pay onetime 240 versus a yearly subscription. Its small and I don't notice it while swinging. I barely interact with it during the round as it's just pick the club and swing (no remembering tap function). It's been accurate, you will usually have to make some minor edits to your round after but never takes me more than 5 min (plus I honestly like to review my round). However biggest compliment I will give is to the shotscope support. They honestly take feedback from users and introduce them into the app. I have submitted two suggestions and within a few weeks the additions were added (simple stuff like describing their statistics better). Anyone who has used shotscope over the last year can see how much the app has improved.

I loved my Adams Super Hybrid.  But I cracked the Fubuki shaft on it close to the ferrule, so it sits in my basement gathering dust.  May have to try and get a new shaft for it sometime, but my used Titleist H1 Hybrid works great for me right now.

I did buy an Adams 3 wood (club head size is halfway between a FW and a hybrid) about the same time as the Super Hybrid, but it doesn't seem to work for me.  The shaft is likely too long for me.  But cutting it would screw up the swing weight so it sits unused.  I sometimes use it when its very windy since its got less loft than my existing FW 3.

So Cobra is coming out with a new players hybrid. Saw a few photos on instagram and all I can say is WOW they look incredible and are definitely a club I want to try out. Apparently designed to be high launch low spin. Again incredible look to them... although I can't find the photos again to post. Pretty sure called the Cobra King Tech Hybrid.

But.... they're missing the rails that I love.  😞

I'll still give one a swing though.

EDIT: Could this be a SuperHybrid competitor?  Lots of talk about distance on the website.

Although I can do a lot of sports right handed (I am right handed) swinging sports I have always done lefty, it is more of an eye dominance thing then actual physical ability. Superspeed helped a right handed swing as well, plus I played field hockey they only make right handed sticks so I had to adjust. I can putt right handed just as well as left handed too, but I don't see myself pulling a TC and switching to RH... golf for me is hard enough LH that I don't need to make it more difficult and the additional clubs that could be purchased would both not help my game or my bank account.

Weird that they dropped the rails on this one - probably not as easy to have all of the movable weights. It reminds me of the F7 line, I think?

EDIT - Just saw they are coming stock with the MMT. Could be an interesting shootout vs. the Super Hybrid.

Cody, you are the hero we need.  Please do a shootout!  

I've been asking for an adjustable Cobra hybrid.... but I want the rails! haha  This does look like a great driving club alternative though.  If I wasn't so comfortable with my 5 wood I'd give one of those 2H a go.
