For years Cobra drivers had a very distinct sound to them. Have you (or your playing partners/neighboring tee box) had any issues with the F9's sound profile?

The only time I really noticed the sound was when I switched the heavier weight from the back of the club to the front to try and reduce spin.  It definitely had more of a hollow metallic sound with the weight in the front.  Not necessarily a bad sound but definitely different.  I have no problems with it.

What sort of reaction are you getting from other golfers out on the course with the new clubs? Are you hearing any "you've never reached there before!!" from playing partners, any comments on the looks/performance, or are you sneaking in under the radar to drop some low scores?

At the start of the season I had a few "friends" apologize that I was going to waste my entire summer playing poor super game improvement irons and below average wedges.  I think my 11 shot victory in our first two-day tournament of the year shut them up about that.

From the people that saw me play with my old set, they are all surprised with the ball flight and some of the shots I have been able to hit. I do get a few audible, "wow" reactions with my iron shots.

From someone I played with for the first time, they were surprised with the spin I was creating with the wedges. Every chip or pitch shot was checking just the way you would want, and he said, "Man you get those to spin just right."

I haven't really noticed the sound as being a problem. No one that I play with has made a comment about the sound either. They just like the look of the Avalanche coloring.

11 shot victory?!  Nice!  I know that would not only shut me up, but make me run to the nearest store and get me some Cobras in the bag😁😅😂

Great answers so far to everyone's questions!  Have you found more versatility/less trouble with the cobras than your previous gamers?  If you were to do a cool trick shot, what club would you use and why?

 

MDGolfHacker

Hmm, I'm not sure I'm capable with the clubs, the best chance I would have is the wedges. I actually have hit a really hard hook with my 58 degree around a tree that looked great until it bumped a branch and went into the bunker...

The irons aren't really super workable..they are just straight and long and super forgiving.

I don't have recurring playing partners. I usually get paired up with someone or run into someone whose backed up and play along. the last time it happened I ran into this super nice guy who was playing with some brand new Mizuno JPX 919's Forged. We both hit off the tee, I murder the ball with my 5i and he gets up with his 4i and hits it solid but blocks it. We get down to our balls and I am a good 30 yards in front of him and in the dead center of the fairway...I almost didn't want to tell him what club I hit when he asked me...😅

I mean it was just a 206 yd 5 iron...whats the big deal...

No issues, I like it but I'm not really a sound guy, I could, in general care less about how a club sounds, I just want it to be in the fairway or on the green... 😜

I have to admit that this is the first weekly challenge that has me a little nervous.  I tried hitting a few irons off the tee during a 9 hole round on Sunday so I would have hybrids into the green.  It did not go well.  I'm also terrible at chipping with anything but a wedge in my hands.

I'm playing 27 holes this afternoon but will then be done with rounds for the week as I am traveling on Saturday and playing in a charity scramble on Sunday.  I'm going to predict a 4th place finish this week.  To my fellow competitors:

Why is there not more golf jokes?

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole. The ball hit one of the men. He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.

The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately began to apologize. “Please allow me to help. I’m a physical therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you’d allow me,” she told him.

“Oh, no, I’ll be all right. I’ll be fine in a few minutes,” the man replied.  

It was obvious that he was in agony, lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands together at his groin.

The female golfer/therapist urged him to let him help him, so at her persistence, he finally allowed her to help.

She gently took his hands away and laid them to his side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside. She administered tender and artful massage to his privates for several long moments and then asked, “How does that feel”?

He replied, “That feels great, but my thumb still hurts like Hell!”

Two Questions:

1. With the new clubs, what's the biggest difference you've noticed in terms of the actual shots? Distance, shape, spin, etc.

2. Knowing what you know now, if you could only keep either the clubs or Arccos, which would you keep?

Good questions!

1. I was already using game improvement clubs so there is very little difference so far. I've always been able to shape the ball with gi clubs anyway. It's cold here so I don't know just how far they will fly but I'm guessing they will be maybe a club longer. All of the clubs are a bit straighter so that's nice.

2. I refuse to decide and if you try to make me I will throw the biggest tantrum in history 😝🤣😎

My old set had 6 manufacturers in the bag so I was definitely a believer in what they had to say but they also say use what works. These clubs seem to be working for me so  maybe I will only have two manufacturers in the bag 😁😎
