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.
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

The Cobra Connect Challenge
Featuring 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!
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!!!
