And now, the time has come. Dare I say, this challenge has been the best one yet. It's feedback from the competitors and fans like this that have really driven the challenge to another level. Thanks t

Cobra SpeedZoneONE and KingONE Wedges

 
My set of wedges consist of a SpeedZoneONE G (48*) and S (54*) wedges and a King Black ONE (60*) wedge. These are wedges I ordered but I was sent a MIM 60* standard length wedge because the King Black ONE 60* was out of stock. I really believe in the one length setup can improve my consistency, so I found a used King Black ONE 60* online for a nominal price to complete the ONE set.
I think most of you probably would think that the ONE wedges would be the most difficult transition in the set. But I have found the SpeedZoneONE wedges to be quite easy to hit just like the less lofted irons. The King BlackONE 60* wedge has made all the shots I am used to making with my Vokey 60*.
Full shots with the SpeedZoneONE wedges launch higher and travel 10-15 yards farther than my Vokey G and S wedges. They stop as quickly due to the higher loft. Using these wedges around the green is different from a Vokey. They are hot and you will not get the same spin and check on shot shots.
The King Black ONE 60*wedge will perform like a Vokey for every shot around the green. I don’t use a 60* wedge for many full shots, it is more of a specialty club for me when I’m needing avoid hazards, bunkers, and rough around the green.

Looks                                                                                          3.5 of 5 stars
I am not going to kid you that the SpeedZone wedges are as sexy as a Vokey wedge, they look like a GI club. The King Black is damn sexy though. 3 stars SpeedZone 4 stars King Black = 3.5 stars

Sound and Feel                                                                        4.5 of 5 stars
I get excellent feedback from all three wedges. The sound is muted with the SpeedZone wedges and the sound od a nice “click” with the King Black wedge.
Basic Characteristics                                                                4.5 of 5 stars
The common thread with these wedges is they are ONE length and my setup are basically the same on full swing shots. Shots requiring opening the club face have been no problem at all. Some of the touch shots around the greens have been a little hot with the SpeedZone wedges.
On Course Performance                                                            5 of 5 stars
Statistically I have improved distance and accuracy with wedge play since putting these wedges in play.

Miscellaneous                                                                              4 of 5 stars
I love the one length of these wedges but long term I may consider all three wedges being the same model club head.
Play It Trade It                                                                              5 of 5 stars
I’m all in on ONE length clubs! Look at my trends in handicap for approach and chipping and sand after 7 rounds with ONE length.
Total                                                                                              4.5 of 5 stars

Even though I’m still smarting from the beat down @b.boston gave everyone last week I will also call out@daviddvm. That is, if I can get to the course! Good luck everyone!!!

Week 4 Recap

Our competitors got a chance to feel what it's like to be Bryson and overpower courses as they flexed the woods and wedges from the new Cobra lineup. The scores across the board were lower CCNet than last week's irons only challenge and it appears they had more fun doing it too. The young buck @GB13 brought home this week's win and slid himself to within 1 of the lead locked in a dead heat by @B.Boston and @daviddvm.  Each week has brought a new winner so will this week finally be @edingc's chance to bring home gold? For those keeping track at home, ties will be broken by 1) number of golds 2) silvers 3) bronzes. Right now, that still doesn't separate our top two so I'm hoping that sorts itself out before we get to the finish.

CCNet Scores:

  • B.Boston - 70.0
  • daviddvm - 69.5
  • edingc - 76.1
  • GB13 - 68.3
  • HeadHammer - 69.4

Week 4.png

And our competitors continue to prove why they're in this challenge by smacking down challengers left and right to the tune of a 7-3 record. B.Boston was the most challenged and completely dominated going 6-0 in his matchups. The shining moment for our challengers was @jddaigneault shooting this week's lowest CCNet overall.

Week 5 - 14 in the Chamber

Competitors: You guys been dying for your full set back? Sure...with a twist. Some of you may have seen this challenge in the Euro Tour highlights. We're going to take the formula with a tweak to make it work for this challenge. Each competitor will be shooting with their full bags but they're going to have to be creative about it. Each time you use a club, you can't use it again until you've used the rest of the clubs in your bag. The overall rotation up and down is up to you, but you need to "reset" the bag before you can bomb driver again. In this instance, putter acts as a freebie club that doesn't take up a spot in your rotation; however, you can choose to putt out with another club if you'd like to reset the bag faster. Whichever club you begin putting with must be used until the ball is holed. As in the past 2 weeks, lowest CCNet wins.

Fans: Here's your final chance to challenge a competitor. You play by the same rules as them but you pick which one you're challenging. It must be someone new that you haven't challenged yet. Entry = 1 ticket in the spin and win to get 2 more. To enter submit your HC, Slope, Rating, and Gross score.

 

Good Luck Everyone!

 

Here we go @daviddvm. I came for the King @B.Boston last week and failed. Now I'm coming for the new T-1 finisher.

Nice playing fellas.  The job thing has me playing catch up once more.  But it's turning into an even better season than last year---which is crazy.  Cue the popcorn, I have a hunch it's going to be a heck of a ride these next few weeks.

@B.Boston Well I played this weekend, and kept track of the holes I went Woods / wedges. Now I counted my Pw which I actually think is a 46* so it may not have been correct. But I went Woods Wedge on 11 out of the 18 holes. On those holes I was 2 under Gross score. I guess I Should try this bomb and gouge thing more often!!! (if i don't count the Pw I did it correctly on 7 holes and shot even par gross score)...I think you might have been lucky I didn't do it for all holes against you 😉
