Official MyGolfSpy/Cobra Connect Driver Challenge Thread

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Boys, this was some fun stuff! Thank you MyGolfSpy and Cobra/Puma Golf for really coming together with an innovative way to share a great product with everyone! Y'all are the real MVPs!

 

The F7+ that I have is an absolute player in the driver game. All boxes are checked. Adjustability with weights and loft is key for proper fit. Looks are on point. Feel and sound are up there with the best of them. Performance is right there with the best of them. Where this really wins, and I'd like to think most here will agree, is the price point. All of this for sub $300 should appeal to every golfer looking for a new driver. Oh, I haven't even mentioned that COBRA CONNECT comes standard adding a whole new box that most (ALL) other drivers can't check!

 

My one and only complaint came in the form of the Lamkin grip that I just can't use down here in South Florida weather. Luckily, Cobra has plenty of grip options to choose from that include COBRA CONNECT. I should've made a better choice when ordering. That's all.

 

Post CobraCONNECTMGS Challenge, I will continue to use the F7+ until something out performs it. That's how I decide what clubs I play. If it's better than what I currently have, it goes in the bag. I'm going to fidget with shafts and may even hot melt it a little towards the toe to help give a more fade bias and dial in the swingweight, but that's it.

 

My final stats haven't changed from last week since courses have been shut down pre and post Hurricane Irma. Luckily, I play golf everyday and got a lot of time with the F7+ and Arrcos before the storm.

 

I did go to my buddy's course today and get a practice sesh in on his Full Swing Golf simulator. I hit 30 drives and feel that they are a really good indication (carry #'s for sure) of how this driver performs on the course for me. Still looking to get those spin numbers down, of course!

 

#TeamRickie, THANK YOU for rockin' this Challenge with me over the past month or so! It was a ton of fun meeting you all. As a bigger fan of interacting with MGS via social media as opposed to here in the forum, this was fun to get in here and be introduced to all of these passionate spies!

 

#TeamLexi, thanks for stepping up to the tee box and letting the banter flow! It was nice meeting you!

If you're talking about the King Of The Hole, just go to the hole and click on the KOTH icon! It'll bring it up!

Thanks Gray! This was a ton of fun, the competition and the camaraderie among teammates and even the members of the other team was really cool and made this a really special event, and I'm very proud that I was able to be a part it.

 

I'm on pins and needles waiting to find out all the results!

I was considering giving a full blown review of the F7+ and the Cobra Connect feature. But I realized that that's what I've been doing for the past month in all of my previous posts. 

 

So what I've decided to do instead is just opine about what my final thoughts are about the driver, the software and the competition. 

 

When I found out I was selected for the competition: 

attachicon.gifawesome.gif

Then when I realized what this really meant... 

attachicon.gifOHSNAP.gif

The day I got my sweet piece (the F7+) in the mail: 

attachicon.gifcrying.gif

It was so beautiful... 

 

The first day I went to the range to use this beast...

attachicon.gifwow.gif

 

Then when I was finally able to take this to the course and use the software on ANDROID I was like...

attachicon.gifconfused.gif

Because tagging up and making this thing work wasn't really working with my Android phone app. It was glitchy for sure. It would tag up with some drives but not all it wasn't consistent. And my first impressions were: 

attachicon.gifdisappointed.gif

The app destroyed my battery. Didn't even make it through 9 holes with more than 50% battery at start. 

attachicon.gifbattery.gif

 

Then I tried my iPhone since others in the challenge seemed to think things were fine. I can say things were WAY BETTER on the iPhone App. I was all like: 

attachicon.gifwowza.gif

So I would have a hard time recommending this app to users with Androids. It will work but at a huge hit to your battery. Make sure you have topped off that thing before going out for your round. 

 

So once I worked through the technical issues and started really tracking and getting data, I was having a blast with this driver. 

attachicon.giffun.gif

 

It totally replaced my M2 during the competition. Poor M2.. so lonely just sitting there ... by itself in the corner...

attachicon.gifalone.gif

 

Now 4 weeks later... 70+ drives detected ... 4+ KING OF THE HOLES later.. multiple 300+ drives...  I'm all like

attachicon.giflove.gif

 

So long story short. The Cobra F7 Series of drivers with the Cobra Connect Grips are totally worth it. They are high end and top of the line. 

 

So whatever happens with the final decision of the winner of this thing... all I know is:

attachicon.gifiwon.gif

 

because I was able to be a part of this amazing challenge. 

 

To the MGS Crew... the amazing TEAM RICKIE and all the Spy's following this crazy thing.......

 

attachicon.gifthanks.gif

 

and to "team lexi" 

attachicon.gifmeh.gif

at least you tried.... 

Nominated for the best use of GIF's in a thread as Rory would say...."Well, In Like Forever!"

This #TeamLexi comeback reminds me of my round today....

 

Partner and I were playing a nassau and were 4 down with 4 to go on the back 9.

Up and down for par from the bunker to take 15

Beautiful flop shot for 1 putt par to take 16

25 foot putt for par to take 17

.

.

.

18th hole and we've got to win it.  Our honors and my partner hit an okay drive but was blocked out by the trees from going for the green.

It was a now-or-never moment with my King F7...

...and the #SilverSlugger came through in the clutch!  Piped one 265 right down the tube and got a few oos and ahhs from the guys!

Managed to put it on and 2 putt to take the hole!

.

.

.

C'mon TeamLexi!  We may be down but we're not out !!

I liked Rickie's play heading into decision day.  I feel like that was a good sign for #TeamRickie taking victory in the 1st ever Cobra CONNECT Challenge!   ;)  ;)
