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.

The problem is that I'm actually really happy with everything in the bag right now! I just don't feel the need to go rocking the boat. These actually look like great options at both the 16 degree and 20 degree slots since I play my 4 hybrid as basically a 6/7 wood. 

Wedges are probably going to be the next out of my bag though, not because I don't love them but just because of the amount they get used on course and in practice.

I will say, the top end of the bag would look really sweet with an Epic Speed LS and two of these hybrids... 🤣

Looks like a direct competitor... same length, but it's slightly more adjustable.

image.png.9022121720c5e50da580888f0ddab0ec.png

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.

I think this could be a great club and do wish the rails had stuck around, but maybe it won't matter much? I believe it was F6 before rails came back. I only say that because I have a F7 3 wood and it has the rails and F6 did not. Really doesn't matter though, and looking forward to seeing how anyone hits this finds it and maybe there after Cobra will bring out one in LH a year or so down the line. 
That seems to be a trend with them. They will make a "new club" in RH only and after a year or two once it has gained traction and will be a staple in their lineup a LH version comes out. See MIM irons, Driving Irons and several other woods. I will give them credit they have brought out a lot more LH kit which has been awesome to see!

The news of a new Ping wedges got my attention.  As you said, not because I'm thinking about switching, but when they do wear out PINGs.... spinsistency... is something I'd be interested in if it's included in a more traditional profile like the MIMs.  With some of the dewy morning rounds any extra spin on wet shots would be welcomed.  

I'll find out tomorrow if the Speedzone is still King in my bag or if there is a mutiny brewing.  Changing to the +1.5* and flipping the heavy weight up front has done some really good things at the range.  Just need to get out and play a round to see if it's real.

Was thinking about new irons early this spring, went ahead and got those.  But I'm thinking it's finally time to get a loft wedge.  Thinking a 54 degree and eyeing the CBX2 wedge for that.

Just had a fitting at the PGASS... while I was a little disappointed by the "fitting" aspect of it, at least it was free with a promo code, and I got to try a lot of different heads against my gamer.  

I was hoping to see if there were other shaft options better for me, but I was pretty much within the trackman optimized window with the Speedzone... but the Callaway Epic Max LS was right with it and felt better.

I'll post some of the results soon... but the Epic Max LS is still on my mind!

They had the blades next to them, and the Mizuno copper nearby. The Mizzies were the best looking, and the Rickie blades did look shinier and more like copper than these. I was really disappointed in the coloring of this model.

Agreed. But I think I’m coming to the conclusion that I only like the copper/gold coloring on wedges and blades. Something about the cavity back design is not looking right to me in the copper.

but those do look different than the Rickie blades or forged tecs

The full face cleveland zipcore wedges have me intrigued.  It's hard for me to try something other than my vokey's as I know the feel from using them the past 13 years.  

Probably will wait until I do a club champion fitting in the winter so I can hit a lot of different options.

I picked up a 50* full face Zipcore and after 1 round it is firmly in the bag. Perfect bounce for me with awesome spin, great looks, and the full face grooves to help my occasional toe miss. 
 

Im hoping to convince the wife and kid that I need an orange whip or sklz trainer as my course doesn’t have a range for warm up.

Honestly I love the sklz trainer. Best thing for me if I don’t have time to properly warm up as you get a good stretch and some good tempo too. 
 

I know @Lacassem always uses his and my dad has the shorter “iron” length one too.

Good to know. That is the main reason for me to get one since my course has no range and I tend to play first thing in the morning. I played with my uncle a few weeks ago and his BIL had an orange whip. Took a few swings with it and felt my back stretch. Took my opening tee shot and it felt like I had already been playing and loosened up.   Trying to read up on the differences between the 2 before I make my final push to the fam!  I’ll probably end up with another golf towel and have to purchase one myself!🤣

I don’t know the difference in brands or orange vs yellow (im guessing weight) but the skilz brand has withstood a lot for me. I’ve had it for about 7 years, use it on concrete, grass, rock. Have left it out in the rain sun what have you. Thing is still prime shape.
