@strokerAce, you mentioned you couldn't hit the F7 as far as your other drivers. About how many yards are you losing with this one?

Tough to tell... I'd say 5-10 yards at the most.  It's not a significant difference so far.  

I think the outlier is that when I crush it with each of them my gamer goes farther by about 10 yards.

 

Although - I do have to say - that the F7 is certainly more forgiving on off-center strikes.

I guess there's one more thing about the contest overall.... on the majority of holes I try to use my Driver every time.

 

There are some holes where it is just not possible, but, whenever possible I use my driver.

If I wasn't participating in the contest and trying to get as much statistical information as possible to share with the group I might play the holes differently - 3wood, hybrid, etc.

 

BUT... I want to get as much data loaded into the app as I can before the 4 weeks is up so that you all have some good numbers to go by when considering whether or not it is worth it when considering a new driver.

Prayers for y'all Texas boys. Truly sad that this type of disaster is even possible. [emoji22] Hits close to home being that we're in South Florida where every time a Hurricane hits, Andrew gets brought up and then it reminds everyone how susceptible we are to the same tragedy. Prayers up!

 

As far as golf goes, since changing up the set up of my F7+ and getting some more weight in the head (extra 10g), I've started to get my carry numbers back up. Courses are still soft down here so carry is a premium!

 

I've gone back to my Project X HZRDUS T1100. It's a 75g shaft, 6.5 flex, counter balanced design that helps offset the extra weight in the head.

 

I've had 2 of my best driving rounds this past week. Distance comes and goes, but accuracy was much improved. Switching my setup made a big difference with that. Accuracy is an overrated stat in my opinion, especially at my course, but Cobra CONNECT/Arccos really makes you focus on your numbers and this has made me out fairways a little higher on my list of prerogatives.

 

I've got point out and laugh at a couple of my drives. On #7 at my course, short par 5 that is reachable, there's a trick/speed a lot down the right rough line. You can play it down there and cut 10-20 yards off the hole and give yourself a better angle into the green. Well, as you can see from Cobra CONNECT, there's a cart path down that way. 2 days in a row, I smashed path.

 

I guess it's a good thing outliers are taken out, in true MGS fashion, or my smart range would be pretty wonky with those included!

 

I feel more comfortable than week 1 with my Cobra F7+, that's for sure. I'll say for those following along, the F7+ is a great driver. I don't think the ball speeds are there versus some of the other heads but optimal spin/launch #'s will beat 2-3mph more ball speed if the numbers don't line up for you.

 

I know a good amount of my friends on Instagram have had great success since getting into their F7 or F7+. It should be on your list to try. Especially now with the lower price point.

 

 

Here's my stats and those two cart path bombs!! Haha. attachicon.gifIMG_3250.PNGattachicon.gifIMG_3252.PNG

Question for the contestants and anyone else that has this driver.

When I was doing some research on the web I ran across this:

 

Players will also be able to access exclusive Cobra content within the Arccos Driver app, including product tech videos and golf tips from Cobra coaches and PGA Tour Pros.

https://www.golftipsmag.com/buyers-guide/drivers/buyers-guide-2017-cobra-f7/

 

Has anyone been able to access any of this "exclusive" content?

I don't see it anywhere in the Android app.  Am I missing something?

Week two stats are in. Weather wasn't anything near as rough as it was on the coast but still prevented a lot of practice and play, probably didn't help the results when I did play either. So far I'd have to say my impression of the F7+ is plenty long but I have a few consistency issues that I still need to work out if it's gonna take over as my gamer. As always fee free to ask any questions that come to mind. IMG_1872.PNGIMG_1873.PNG

LOL.  At my course....yes.  Not a TON of players rockin' Cobra CONNECT or Arccos, though.  I'm also at the course 5 days a week.  

 

When I click "KING OF THE HOLE" on every hole on my course, it's either me, my buddy Kasey (125+mph SS, games a SLDR still), and this Bobby guy. LOL.

Ok, I am posting my stats for the week, but you'll notice that they are the same stats as last week because Harvey got in my way!!

 

I want to post stats and meet the a Thursday deadline because I don't want to let my team down in the team part of the challenge and I certainly don't want to ruin my chances at the overall prize at the end.

Right now I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back on the course, I'm hoping I can find some courses open next week, my home course was hit with 33 inches of rain and a small tornado so it will be closed for quite awhile.

 

I'm currently waiting for the Brazos River to crest and then recede so I can get back into my home wnd check for damage...right now I am very optimistic after a friend of mine on the local police force sent me a pic by text of my house and the water hasn't reached my house so far!!

 

GO TEAM RICKIE!!

My week at the Myrtle Beach World Amateur didn't go as hoped. I finished last in my flight. I didn't have much luck with the driver. I don't think it was the drivers fault. Operator error! I have double cross misses going even with my irons. Sorry Team Lexi!

 

I'm playing so bad I do t even want to finish this challenge right now. Maybe getting back home to MN will help me regroup.

I hate it when the game beats you down to the point you want to throw the clubs in the lake. But stay strong man... Stay strong!

Only got to get out once this past week. Between life/work and weather it's been hard. I drove 9 hours south east today to see my 85 year old grandma and plan on trying to play some here in NC. FLAT LAND! I am looking forward to seeing if my ball flight with this F7+ is different in this air and altitude. Hoping the weather holds up.

 

This week in the league was so-so. Played well but my swing was out of whack. HIt it well at the range on Sunday but on the course Wednesday I couldn't get my swing speed up enough to get through the ball. Duck hooking like crazy.

 

Anyway.. Long story short, here are my stats through 8/31.

 

GO TEAM RICKI!!!!!

I always find that I get hot with new clubs during the honeymoon period. Now that you guys are getting close to the end of that, are you still enjoying the driver? Is it still the wonder club it seemed to be when you first got it?

I can respond to this from my side.

 

I had a 2016 M2. It was Tour Issue and cracking. I went Cobra because I liked the adjustability, the look, and from the one swing I took of my buddy's F7+ back in December, the feel.

 

I haven't been fit. I haven't optimized/dialed it in. Nothing. I've tried a couple shafts and weight combos and regripped it. That's it.

 

I hit this the same distance as my M2. Forgiveness might not be there, possibly because I have the weight up front. I truly believe that all of these drivers are all so close.

 

GET FIT. Haha. I know I said that I haven't but I will. I also have enough knowledge to know what's right and wrong for me. The Cobra F7+ is a real solid driver. Is it the longest? Probably not. Is it the most forgiving? Doubtful. Do I like the way it feels, looks, and performs? Yup! My favorite part is the adjustability. I know they all have it it seems. I just think the F7/F7+ has a really awesome system.

 

Not to mention it is a GREAT deal right now.

Unfortunately for me not so much. It's a good club don't get me wrong, it's very long when you catch it but I'm having some control issues with it that keep creeping back in. Still time to turn it around though.

That's so funny to hear multiple sides to the story. I think the official testers mostly commented on how ridiculously straight it is.

 

Is there a chance you're having issues because you're trying to crank them out there for the challenge?
