Is Arccos similar to Shotscope with respect to having to take a practice swing or two with the chosen arrow in order to wake the system and capture the shot?  I'm still struggling to remember and do that.

The Cobra team mentioned that it's a combination of light and movement. For the first hole or two it wasn't a huge deal to pull out my phone after each shot and check that it was recorded.

I did try to trick the tags by shining my phone's flashlight on them, but that didn't seem to make a difference.

During yesterday's round in perfect light conditions, Arccos missed two shots the entire round. They were both sand shots that didn't go very far at all so it's totally understandable there.

Interesting, I've not had any issues with low light. I played most of my rounds at first light and my 1st tee box is covered by trees and pretty dark in the mornings, but it always recorded the shot with no issues. I thought once you pulled the club it was active, hence them telling us to leave them in the bag all the time, and that the sound of the club striking the ball triggered the shot to be recorded?

Interesting. I always tried to have a few practice swings to help it along. Maybe it was a combination of my phone microphone and sensors that didn't get along as well.

Both you and @GB13 bring up a good point - there is a reasonable amount of time spent on your phone during a round. Playing by myself this isn't a big deal, but I could see how it could frustrate playing partners who are not understanding. Thankfully the last two non-solo rounds I've played my playing partners have been very understanding.

You know, the more I look at these irons, the more I see the resemblance to the i500's.  Except that they have magic goo inside, the internal cross-sections are quite similar.  I might give a slight nod to the Cobras on cosmetic look - they really did a nice job on that.

Quoted the wrong post dagnabit... it was this photo I was looking at.

Played my final round of #CC4 this morning. It was very surreal feeling as this has been quite an experience this summer. I hit some really good shots, some really bad shots and a few in between and had a lot of fun just taking everything in. The weather has been very touch and go here already this September, so I'm trying to enjoy what little golf we have left this season.

Playing at my home course I shot an 85, which is fitting as that's what I shot during my first round with the Cobra clubs in the bag way back on July 18. That feels like not long ago, but also a long time ago!

Hole No. 7 pretty much summed up the type of play I've had for the past several weeks.

no7.png.14ad2e377926e270be28f9b9580913c6.png

I pulled my drive a little left and smacked a tree, with the ball rebounding all the way back into the fairway. Lined up my second shot with the SpeedZone 7 iron and hit the most beautiful layup shot that was headed exactly where I wanted -- at least until it caught a lone branch and dropped straight down in the fairway about 150 away. Undeterred, I pulled 8 iron and put a great swing on the ball from the fairway and saw it bounce up on the elevated green. Walking up I had this left for an unconventional par:

And the friggin' putt lipped out. 🤦‍♂️

It's been a wild ride, and I'm looking forward to summarizing my thoughts in our wrap up posts. Massive thanks to @GolfSpy STUDque for herding us around for the past few months, and of course to fellow competitors @B.Boston, @daviddvm, @GB13, and @Headhammer, who put on a good show and made for some excellent competition!

Thanks for your dedication and hard work this year.  It was awesome having you as a contestant!
