Aww, man. I wish you could have gotten the full 18 in. Are you out of daylight and that's why they pull the flags? Can't say they do that around here.

There's currently no twilight golf due to covid so the munis pack up early. There was probably 2 more hours of daylight. It's all good, I had fun with the challenge aside from that dumb choke down hybrid fiasco

And just like that I’m done ... waited at 4th tee, was patient, walked away with a bogey. 

Waited at 5th tee for what felt like forever, and it very likely was, was TRYING to be patient ... yanked my tee shot left and OB ... teed it up again only to proceed to yank it again left and OB. 

Walked away with a rain check ☹️

@B.Boston congrats on your W this week. Tough day on the course following an inch and a half of rain last night. All my driving distances are straight carry. I had multiple drives that were stuck in the mud. Made it a tough day to be able to hit wedges into greens and get them to role out towards back pin locations. I'm coming for someone else next week.

And loving all these screenshots with the Arccos data. Very cool. Just figured out the strokes gained category via the color indicator as well. 👌

It’s a shame you didn’t get out this week, I’d have looked forward to your challenge.  That said, while I didn’t shoot a personal best today, it was probably the best round I’ve ever played. I’m so thrilled to be done with this challenge, I absolutely hate not having my irons. It just makes it such a challenge on approach shots and par 3s... and my course has 7 par 3s.

Woah, woah, woah ... back it up ... your course has 7 par 3s?! I completely must have missed that. And yes, to @Lacassem’s point, how did you play those???

Lots of soft feathered hybrids, and an accidental layup 😬. The par 3s were so difficult, I only hit 3/7  greens but my play was to always leave the easiest up and down, since I couldn’t control the distance as well. Oh, and 2 back to back chip ins help too.

The bunt approach. Did you take any thin type wedges and just get them to run a little or all hybrid? Chip ins make it easy for sure

I thought about trying to thin wedges, but figured that would be even harder to control than the bunts. Luckily there isn’t much forced carry on the par 3s, if there was, I’d have to adjust my strategy. This was the only par three that I didn’t hit hybrid (long is dead), tried to jump on a 50° and it turned into a layup... 😆FE05AA57-4618-45AE-BE91-D1D1B87671D3.png.94c446fd34cffbc19dcf76acfb1f40be.png

Official MIM Wedges Review - GB13

8CDA2132-C536-49BD-BB1C-BFC565A38B88.jpeg.af63a96edad1e3e292d02894c9c088dd.jpeg

When you think of Cobra, the last thing you probably think about is wedges. Not to spoil anything, but I’m about to tell you why you’re wrong. 

I orded the MIM wedges in 50°, 54°, and 58° with Stiff KBS Tour 105s. Just like my irons, I was originally fit into Modus3 105s (backordered), and was told these would be a great replacement. Previously, I was using PING Glide 1.0 52° and 58° wedges. I loved those wedges for a long time, however they were starting to wear out when I was selected for this contest.

 

Looks- ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5 Stars

I received the 50° and 58° in the chrome finish and the 54° in black finish, which are both stunning, and have now been affectionately nicknamed, my “zebras”. (Yes I know I’m weird.) Joking aside, these wedges are super classic at address, and just slick overall. My only (minute) complaint, like @daviddvm is about the scalloped back. It just isn’t my taste, however, after using these wedges, I would NOT advise Cobra to get rid of it. It’s functionality is superb. 

6019F008-428A-452C-8E99-C75EF0CF7C8C.jpeg.736c73b846215f75f2e4928704ba0cc0.jpeg

3EE3B091-D387-4D70-850E-1C87FC5BAAB6.jpeg.7f78a7081bcfdf4674c0c130504f0766.jpeg

Sound & Feel- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5 Stars

The MIM wedges get their name from what Cobra calls Metal Injection Molding, a process which, “results in a more even grain structure than forged and cast wedges and the softest feel the industry’s ever seen.”  I’d say this statement is pretty darn accurate. They feel soft, yet produce a very solid sounding strike. They definitely sound and feel much better than my old PINGs.

 

Basic Characteristics- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5 Stars

Everything about these wedges fit my game well. I ordered the versatile grind for all three wedges, and am very happy with that choice. I’m able to hit every shot I want to around the green, from flops to bump and runs. The scalloped back definitely is effective in lowering the leading edge, resulting in less thin open-faced shots. 

The spin rates I’ve been seeing have been perfect. I’m not sucking the ball back, but to be honest, my ideal shot hits and sticks pretty much where it landed. In my opinion, amateurs spinning shots back (or trying to) leads to a lot of trouble. 

 

On-Course Performance- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5 Stars

In case you can’t tell yet, I’m loving these wedges. They’re consistent, easy to hit, forgiving around the green, and sound and feel wonderful. 

My average distance to the pin on chip shots has gone down by 4 feet, and my full swing proximity has gotten better as well. These wedges just work for me.

 

Play it or Trade it- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5 Stars

Let me think about this for a second... PLAY IT!! These are my favorite clubs that Cobra sent us. I can’t really say I miss my Glides, even when they weren’t worn out, I don’t know if they were ever this good. 

 

Overall- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5 Stars

Consistent? ✅

Solid feel? ✅

Easy to use? ✅

Complaints? 0️⃣

I’m not sure why Cobra wedges get overlooked, but I can guarantee you that these will be in the bag for a long time, and Cobra will be top of the list when the time comes to replace them. I don’t have bad word to say about them, and believe me, I’ve tried to find something. Cobra has pulled off absolutely amazing wedges.

Seems like you and I have a lot of the same feelings. I really do love the wedges. Good write-up!

On the 6th tee I joined up with the pair in front as they were still waiting for the fairway to clear.

I’m curious, what’d you’re playing partners think about your set makeup??
