Official MyGolfSpy/Cobra Connect Driver Challenge Thread

Recommended Posts

First official look at stats!

 

Hope the rest of #TeamRickie is finding some fairways for us!

 

In all honestly, if I can get my fairways to hit 65%-70%, that will be huge for me. Like I've said before, fairways aren't a premium at my course with trouble on the left on every hole. This challenge, and really Arccos/Cobra CONNECT is pushing me to be better and pick different lines.

 

It's funny how the app makes you focus more on your shot. That should be a selling point, honestly. Every. Shot. Matters. If you don't focus on what you're trying to do, your stats will show it and probably reflect on your score!

 

Below are my stats, along with my two biggest bombs. I'll say it again, those of you in the Midwest (can't speak for any other areas) have an advantage with those summer playing conditions! Heavy air down here in Florida costs an easy 10-20 yards off the tee plus the soft conditions.

 

Then again, I'll take golf 365 days out of the year over Midwest winters! I don't miss that at all! Haha!

 

Lezzzzzz GO #TeamRickie!

I hope they bring this back again. Only thing is, even if they do, I'm pretty sure I'll already have the driver by then. Ha

 

But that's fine, it was a great follow this year and I'd look forward to following it again.

Since they've announced you can get Arccos on the entire F8 lineup...driver, FW, hybrids and irons......maybe there could be an expanded challenge!

Well, my Cobra Dream bag is finally complete!

Huge thanks to MyGolfSpy and to Cobra/Puma for the incredibly fun competition! I really hope with the addition of the Arccos sensors to the full F8 lineup that it can be done again even bigger and better!

 

Thanks to all my Team Rickie teammates and my fellow competitors from Team Lexie for making this such a fun ride!

What an outstanding review thread!! Everyone that participated went above and beyond to keep it entertaining and all the prize winners thoroughly deserved everything they received.

I like the fact that most of the testers are still rocking the F7 drivers, so they must be still as good as when they were new.

      I fairly new to interacting in the forums and I'm obviously not as connected in the industry as many of you are but I figured why not post this here and see what everyone thinks. Now this may have been previously mentioned (If so apologize for the double post) but I was getting some question answered by someone at Arccos and they mentioned that they have a new sensor set coming that would essentially open up the availability of Cobra Connect to everyone and not just Cobra users. The set would presumably replace the 14 screw sensors with 13 grips with specialized sensors (likely the same one used by Cobra) and 1 putter screw. Wish I had more solid evidence than just a conversation to share with everyone but its still a really cool possibility that I hope becomes a reality.

      (5) Testers Announced:
      Cobra Connect Challenge II


       
      The Full Bag Edition
       
       
      Please read this one carefully gang, as it's a BIGGIE!!! And it's more than just a club review - it's a season long experiment in golf improvement.
       
      Welcome to MyGolfSpy's 2nd annual Cobra Connect Challenge - and we're making it bigger and better than ever.  We're looking for FIVE of you to spend the rest of the golf season with a full bag - yes, a full bag - of Cobra's KING F8 gear equipped with the ARCCOS-powered Cobra Connect System.
       
      We'll outfit you with a complete set of Cobra F8's, from driver, fairway and hybrids to irons and wedges - all customized to your specs - as well as MyGolfSpy's newly crowned Most Wanted Stand Bag, the Cobra Ultralight. Your job? Spend the season with your Cobra gear and use the Cobra Connect system to analyze your game, focus your practice and see how much you can improve.
       

       
      Year Long Competition
       
      Our 5 testers will spend the season competing against each other for some great prizes provided by Cobra-Puma, and all you have to do is what you'd do anyway - play golf and work to shoot lower scores. 
       
      To start, Cobra will send you a full ARCCOS 360 set for use with your current gamers. You'll spend a month setting a performance baseline, and once you get your new Cobra gear, you'll spend the rest of the year playing, tracking your data and discussing your journey here in the MyGolfSpy Forum and on Social Media. 
       
      This is gonna be, as they say, a hoot!


       
      How To Apply:
       
      This review opportunity is open to any golfer in the U.S. or Canada, so in this thread - please tell us the following:
       
      1. Your first name and home state or province
       
      2. Your current set makeup
       
      3. Your current handicap
       
      4. Your goals for the 2018 golf season
       
      Again, the commitment on your part is to game your new Cobra gear for the remainder of the season and share your journey both here in the MyGolfSpy Forum and on Social Media. 
       
      Good luck to all, and we'll be announcing our 5 testers right here next week!
       
      Thank you to everyone that applied, this was a very tough challenge to narrow it down to just five. If you weren't selected for this testing, you won't have to wait long.  Another great one will be announced in the next couple days!!   We keep it rollin on MGS

      Cobra F7 & F7+ Drivers!
       
       
      Now don't touch the knobs 'cause I think we're going to have some fun with this one...
       
      Everyone likes to test drivers, right? And throw a little competition into the mix? And prizes, including a boffo Grand Prize?
       
      That beats a weekend in Vegas all day, every day and twice on Sundays!
       
      Well we have what might be the Mother of all Competitions with...
       
      The Cobra Connect Challenge!
       

       
      TESTERS WANTED!
       
      We're looking for 8 of you to test and keep a custom-built (to your specs!) Cobra F7 or F7+ driver - but that's not the fun part.
       
      The Chosen 8 will take part in a month-and-a-half long competition using the unique Cobra Connect - the unique Arccos-fueled stat tracker built into the grip of every Cobra driver. 
       

       
      You'll be competing in teams and against each other in areas such as Driving Handicap, Smart Distance, Driving Accuracy, Fairways Hit, Longest Drive and Most Improvement. 
       
      You'll need have some social media skills, too - as prizes will be awarded based on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook interaction, as well.  
       
      Prizes include Cobra-PUMA hats, shirts, shoes and other swag - all leading up to one grand prize -
       
      A full COBRA-PUMA makeover!  
       
      That'll include apparel, shoes and a full bag of custom Cobra equipment - we're talking irons, wedges, hybrids and FW's (it won't include driver because, duh, you'll already have one. And it won't include putter, 'cause Cobra doesn't make one!).
       

       
      HOW TO APPLY:
       
      As we said, this one's a biggie, so PLEASE follow these instructions to the letter. 
       
      In this thread, tell us:
       
      Your first name & home state or province
      Your current driver/shaft combo
      Your driver swing speed and average distance
      Your Twitter/Facebook/Instagram names
      Your Smart Phone type (iPhone or Android)
       

       
      We'll announce the testers in this thread early next week. Good luck!!!
