Shall we kiss the ring Cobra Godfather? I want to wake up with a new set of Cobra's in my bed, not a decapitated horse's head.

I like how this rabbit hole has made it from cobra competition, to Godfather based prose poetry

Just thought I would chime in for a bit to let y’all know that I have been monitoring the situation. As the Cobra Godfather, I am extremely interested in making sure this challenge goes off without a hitch. As a long time Spy, and a reviewer of several Cobra irons (Bio Cell Irons, F6 Irons & F8 full bag), I can tell you that it takes a lot of time to review equipment properly for My Golf Spy. The folks at Cobra are very interested in this annual review by golfers like yourself. We had several interactions with Cobra Staff in the past. The activity of the Spies on this thread was “off the chart”. This made the Cobra Challenge an exciting event to be a part of. Now, with the addition of social media, you are reviewing the equipment on all fronts. It is tedious to keep up.

BTW, I still Game the F8 Fairway Woods and Wedges in my Cobra Ultralight bag. I wish the best for all who are selected and will be following them throughout the summer. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Wise words from one of the best! I think the opportunity to interact with some Cobra staff would be awesome. Just goes to show that they are on of the more plugged in companies. Hopefully they start to get some more recognition. I’d love to be a part of that!

As cool as your post is, it sort of made me sad.  Sort of like when I hit a bomb drive and end up with a double bogey.  Happy, but sad.

It's like birding 18 after shooting your absolutely worse score ever on the previous 17 holes. 

Absolutely thrilled, but still sad.

Ok, I got some great feedback on my previous video and have made it more focused and informative on the Arccos Caddie system. It even has a cameo of my wife and daughter. Please take a look. I’ll be making part 2 discussing how to look at the data after you’ve completed your 5 rounds or 90 holes.
