Great weekend of golf in the books! Got a case of the rights but easily fixable! Just some swing path issues that I'm working on. (Swinging too far OUT.)

 

Today's round was a treat! I got to play The Dye Preserve Golf Club in Jupiter, FL and WOW! Great layout!

 

Classic Pete Dye. Trouble everywhere. Tough. Very fair. So much fun.

 

Hole 5 is a drivable par 4 that is protected by water all down the left. My lone birdie and my most well executed drive! If only the rest of the round went that way off the tee!

 

Lots of discussion has been made about the sound of this driver. The muted sound, I feel, is AMAZING. It's actually the number 1 reason why I chose this driver. (Sound and feel being the same category.) In fact, the guy I was playing with made a comment on how much he loved the sound.

 

Ever hit a properly built and hot melted driver? This feels like that out of the box.

 

After this weekend, my fairways went down a touch but I was able to hit a ton of drivers and that felt good! ;)

Here's the stat line so far for me using the iPhone version of the app. Without giving too much away I'm impressed with the club so far for both distance and control. Don't forget to give me a look on the social medias and feel free to let me know any questions y'all have or what you'd like to see posted. GO TEAM LEXI!!!

Hope you all are following me on my social media channels... either that or stalking me.... haha.... posting some good stuff out there.  I'll be adding things to this thread as well but even more goodies are out on social media.  Do a search for #COBRACONNECTMGS to find all the goodies!!

 

As promised, a short video of the sound of the driver.

You'll notice that it is a nice pleasing crack.  Not a loud ping or vicious splaingioanfdioasniofdasnion !!!!

 

 

 

 

That almost sounds more like you hit an iron than a driver. 

 

With the current divers being so loud Was the Lack of noise a pleasant surprise or did it feel odd??

Similar to what Bryangolf said, I kinda like it. It did take some getting used to - and I still am getting used to it; but the auditory response from a well struck drive doesn't need to be an ear-shattering blood-curdling scream.... I think manufacturers are finally understanding that.

 

First time I played with my league teammate he noticed that it hardly made a sound and made a comment.  He has an old Callaway that sounds like an empty soda can when you hit it....

What do I like acoustically from a driver? Not much, just a deafening, sonic boom like crack that wakes the dead and intimidates my playing partners as they stand in awe of my mighty note powers!

Final week of golf league with my King F7 connect driver.  Another great shot from the silver slugger!  Gave myself two Lexi's for this one.  I can definitely get better but this driver is really really fun to swing... cool to see the results on the Arccos app also!

Results from last nights 9 hole league match, I'm not a bomber like some of these guys, but I can say I've picked up at least 10 yards with the F7+ but the thing that continues to make me smile is just how accurate this baby is......fairway after fairway!!

 

I missed 2 faiways last night....1 by maybe a yard and the other because I crushed it through the dogleg all the way through the fairway to a place I've never been able to reach before!!! The ball was piped down the gut...it jus went too far!!

 

Hopefully I can get a round in this evening or Thursday evening because they are predicting Harvey to reform in the Gulf of Mexico and saying we could get 15+ inches of rain over Friday-Monday.

Soooo my Tensei White 80TX that was in my F7+ is now in my F7 3 wood. I measured it (properly) today and it was waaay too short to be in my driver. It was playing at about 43.75". So, back to my HZRDUS T1100 which plays juuuuust about 44.5".

 

The problem, with it being shorter than standard AND the T1100 being a counter balanced shaft, the swing weight was C6!!! No wonder I hit it like crap when I put the T1100 in it before. There was zero chance of that shaft flexing properly with that light of a head/setup.

 

So, I've got an 8g weight coming from Cobra to knock a couple swing weight points off the current set up, which is a 16g/12g config that currently sits at D5.

 

Gonna hit it tomorrow to see what that feels like but I'm feel like I'm that much closer to dialing it in.

 

Here's the pic for reference with the double heavy weight. (Which is an option from Cobra now.)IMG_2671.JPG

honestly 300 yarders aren't typical for me either but I've been able to squeeze a few out under the right conditions with this driver so that's a plus in it's favor. Without giving anything away before write ups I will say I had some control issues at the beginning.

For those of you who have your intros updated, I gave you all a follow on IG and Twitter.

 

Really interested to see that elements Chrome shaft in the F7. I was contemplating getting one of those on the F7 fairway.

I like it !

You guys are killing it!   It's a fun follow as you all are both entertaining and bringing the good  F7 reviews in as well.  I know I'm loving my F6 as it's among the longest drivers I have ever gamed.

I only had time for a quick 9 the other day for week 1. Played at a course close to the house, but this isn't a course for the driver to shine. Just to narrow.

Things that did get in the way of golf, won't be in the way for lil while now lol.

Next week's numbers will be a better gage on what the King F7+ can do.

It's like your handicap for scoring.

The Arccos smart distance is what the GPS estimates to be your drive on good hits based on recorded history of your drives.
