Official MyGolfSpy/Cobra Connect Driver Challenge Thread


Recommended Posts

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 tell you my first range session I didn't think I was going to like this driver. I think part of it was I was set on getting the F7 and due to some circumstances I ended up going with the F7+.... in my mind it was more of a "players" driver....smaller head more workability all that stuff.

 

Well day 1 I hit a small bucket right before my first round and I was all over the place...first 2-3 were huge high slices...then I skied a couple and then snap hooked a few...I got down to the last 4-5 balls before I really focused on a deliberate smooth tempo and suddenly I was hitting baby draws....went to the first tee and smoked the first drive 280 down the pipe for my first "King of the Hole"!

 

By the end of the round I was hitting a mostly straight ball with a penetrating ball flight.

 

I don't think I can call over 80% fairways hit a honeymoon ...I call that a dream come true!! I'm sure that I'll "cool down" a little, but I can say for certainty, the XR is homeless!

Wonder Club? No. But it is still on par with my M2 (2016) though. I haven't used my M2 since receiving the F7+ and never even thought about it till this past week. I lost some swing speed which is obviously something going on with my swing mechanics and not the club. But with the way I have the club set up I need the speed to make this thing work the way it is supposed to.

 

I expect to find the sweet spot again soon once all their rain goes buh-bye.

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?

I'm not really trying to overswing that I can tell. The shaft I have in it right now doesn't feel quite as good as it did in the fitting but when I catch it pure it's a strong club. I might do a bit of shaft hunting when the challenge is done.

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!

Thanks man. I'm hoping to regroup back home.

Not at all! My brain is screwing everything up. It makes me hit more bad shots then good ones lately. For some reason my shaft came in at an inch longer when it was supposed to be standard length. It worked fine the first few rounds but now I'm push slicing more than anything. I think the extra inch might be over exaggerating my pushes.

Cool. I went to the first page expecting it to be there, I was wrong. I'm curious to see who the King is going to be in the end.

Stats for today's round.

Pretty happy. Starting to get my distance back and keep it in the short grass. Officially 9 FIR and 4 missed. Of the 4 only one was really missed, the other 3 were within couple yards and still very playable lol.

I dunno how many people will try the King F7+ but if you get a chance to grab one. I would! Not sure how many other cobra drivers have been this good but this one has opened my eyes to them.

The Cobra drivers are certainly underdogs. I love seeing how well y'all hit them. They can definitely compete with those more well known brands.

I'm a firm believer in just about all the driver heads are equally good. The shaft I think is where the difference comes into play. But that's just me
