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

Before I get any further into this introduction, I first want to say a big THANK YOU to Cobra/Puma/Arccos and MyGolfSpy. Not only is this one of the biggest and best testing opportunities on the MGS F

Sure, this meme was used already in this thread, and I'm not the only one who wanted to use it... But you know what... Hello Fellow Spies and welcome to my #COBRACONNECT CHALLENGE 4 Intro! 

Posted Images

Have you noticed any difference on the course in the performance of the Gen 2 and Gen 3?
Also are there any differences on the app features and tools from one to another?

I haven’t noticed any differences. As far as I know they are internally identical to the subscription only sensors in the way they work and any of the strokes gained things would be limited by the app side and I haven’t seen anything from Arccos suggesting it would be locked out.

All pending to change of course. But it sounds like they’ll support them until the last one’s battery dies.

My last question for the competitors (can add to your sum up too) what is the 1 club you wouldn’t give up. If you had to give them all back but 1 group whether it was just automatic or just out performed previous club? (driver, woods, hybrids, irons or wedges).

the gambler in me wants to guess:

@edingc wedges?

@daviddvm the OL?

@GB13 tough one I’m guessing driver or irons ? Only because you seemed to be launching the driver throughout

@B.Boston wedges or wood?

@Headhammer woods?

Just my guesses from initial reviews

No. 1 would be the wedges, for sure. Massive improvement versus what I had previously in the bag.

Given my earlier review this may be a surprise, but I think the SpeedZone irons will stick around a while as well. The more I've hit them lately, I've really enjoyed them. 

Honestly, top to bottom I think my bag is set, except for maybe subbing a hybrid for the 4 iron at some point.

This may surprise you....

Irons! I love the feel, performance, and forgiveness of these irons as a group. I know you weren’t with me this weekend in Sebago, but you wouldn’t have believed some of the towering shots I was hitting, and the turf interaction is great for me.

Now if we’re talking individual clubs...

1a is the 5-wood with its 76.2% FIR
1b is the 52* MIM Black wedge.

I love these wedges, but I’d take the irons as a group first. But please Cobra, don’t ask me for the wedges back. I’d have to ask Mark for my old wedges back, and he would have to ask my brother to give him his old wedges back. And my brother REALLY needed those wedges.

Yea you’ve really seems to enjoy those. I’m glad the irons turned around. You have not had bad rounds or even decent rounds you have had great rounds just not putting it all at the same time (this is me 80% of the time). 
Also we have loved all your folks hard work it’s been great.

B.Boston Review Update:  MIM Black Wedges!

I am going to update my original post, but figured I should share here too.  I was concerned about the MIM Black finish and how well it was going to hold up over the long run.

I’ve used the 60* wedge 67 times on the course which includes several more bunker shots (including some muddy/rocky ones that I wasn’t too happy to be in...).  The wedge has help up VERY well and I think they will age gracefully.  The most impressive part to me is that there is very little to no wear on the sole of the wedge.  I am no longer concerned with the finish on these, if anything it seems like I’m going to need to really earn my character on these.

Now Cobra, if you’re reading.... PLEASE make this in PW lofts too.  I would LOVE to add a 48* classic grind to my bag.  If you need a tester... you got my info! 😂

That finish is looking durable 👍.

I'm seeing similar durability on mine, too. The course I played Friday had lots of gravel in the bunkers, and now I have a small nick in the 58, but otherwise they are holding up great.

I hit a bunch of great bunker shots over the past three weeks (@ncwoz can attest to our fried egg sand save during the alternate shot round). Almost like autopilot right now.

Wow that was a close wheel spin! I saw my name on the list of people with our names in the hat and i was like oh I wonder who won...and then it stopped on my tag...I am wondering if I am dreaming right now as I have been having some strange dreams lately..but wow I am stoked about the shoes! I will definitely be wearing them at my next round which might be the first time out in a few weeks after the newborn so what a way to get back to the course! Strange that I chose @B.Boston to win as a die hard NY'er but I don't really let emotions affect my betting...not that I bet on sports much anyway! Big thanks to the MGS team for letting us spectators also be a part of the challenge and actively take part and not just drool over the new clubs the actual participants got to take home! Looking forward to the next challenge!

Well....Even though I couldn't win I got in on the betting action (this is why I dont bet on sports) I went away from my boy @B.Boston and went with the dark horse @daviddvm ....Whooops!

image.jpeg.630f39a4a12eacd1ebf7719add0e8920.jpeg

Congrats to those betters this week that crushed it (lots of 100%ers there) and @golfish! for the new kicks!

I think I had as much fun following this as you all did just playing. The beginning of this competition before everyone was selected was fantastic. In a time where I think we all needed a good laugh this entire group (not just competitors) delivered in removing our minds from the outside world.

 Start to finish the entertainment value was:

image.jpeg.4b7e78ef219f335a615f83a346f4eb91.jpeg

My favorite aspect of this competition was tight between WEEK 3 irons only and WEEK 7 IRL Alt shot.

-Irons only strictly because it was a big turning point for myself realizing what I can do without a driver in my hand (if my putting is hot of course). 

-Alt Shot because while I always have fun playing a round with @B.Boston this was the first time we really assisted each other and got the best out of our skill sets. I also think that it is a great way to get members to meet and get out for what we all enjoy, Golf!

I really wouldn't change much. I think a cool addition could be though is adding a round at the end of the competition where the competitors play 2 balls. 1 with old set 1 with the cobras just to see if an old fire could be rekindled, or if they were on the fence about which set they would be sticking with, could really settle the debate.

Well I only see it fitting to finish up with what I think our competitors look like at the end (almost end) with who is arguably one of funniest actors ever Chris Farley:

@edingc while he crushed reviews he  just struggled to get going on course (not bad either just couldn't put it all together):

image.jpeg.bdc65d339a38c23b79ef11abcf5b46f9.jpeg

@GB13 I said it once I will say it again, you crushed it kid. At your age never would have been able to do this never mind write a readable review. You had some spectacular rounds but this wouldn't be the CCC4 thread if I didn't rag on your age:

@Headhammer crushed reviews, was playing well and had some really good instagram media...almost the trifecta. While I am sorry you were unable to finish up (and a damn good reason not to be able to) I am still gonna rag on your injury, in good humor:

@daviddvm got better and better every week. Great reviews and challenged my horse to the end, while we do not know who the winner is yet I hope the crown slips through your hands like this:

image.jpeg.edb04694efe6381dbfbea49ff5b3fdbd.jpeg

and finally @B.Boston I know your game and had the benefit of watching your game progress, just awsome. But the competition is over now so I hope your game goes like this so I can watch on and beat ya:

Cant wait to see all the final results. Its been a blast gents!

Pfft, it wouldn’t be a CCC thread if someone didn’t rag on my age. It’s been a hell of a lot of fun. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it!

My last question for the competitors (can add to your sum up too) what is the 1 club you wouldn’t give up. If you had to give them all back but 1 group whether it was just automatic or just out performed previous club? (driver, woods, hybrids, irons or wedges).

the gambler in me wants to guess:

@edingc wedges?

@daviddvm the OL?

@GB13 tough one I’m guessing driver or irons ? Only because you seemed to be launching the driver throughout

@B.Boston wedges or wood?

@Headhammer woods?

Just my guesses from initial reviews

58* wedge, then surprisingly the 3W. The flop shots I can hit with the 58° are absolutely amazing. Not to mention it is just automatically within 10-15 feet from 80 yards. The 3W because of the Baffler rails. I finally found one I can hit off the deck, and it’s nice.

B.Boston Review Update:  MIM Black Wedges!

I am going to update my original post, but figured I should share here too.  I was concerned about the MIM Black finish and how well it was going to hold up over the long run.

I’ve used the 60* wedge 67 times on the course which includes several more bunker shots (including some muddy/rocky ones that I wasn’t too happy to be in...).  The wedge has help up VERY well and I think they will age gracefully.  The most impressive part to me is that there is very little to no wear on the sole of the wedge.  I am no longer concerned with the finish on these, if anything it seems like I’m going to need to really earn my character on these.

Now Cobra, if you’re reading.... PLEASE make this in PW lofts too.  I would LOVE to add a 48* classic grind to my bag.  If you need a tester... you got my info! 😂

This is interesting, I’ll need to post a photo of mine, but I’m seeing significantly more wear on my 54*. I’m not sure if it is due to the soil here being mostly clay, or what.

TEAM HAMMER COBRA CONNECT CHALLENGE SUMMARY

 

 

Wow, hard to believe the Cobra Connect Challenge has come to an end. I remember seeing the schedule of events and thinking this is a lot of golf and a lot of work to do and it was over before I knew it, injury not-withstanding. 

I want to, again, thank My Golf Spy for selecting me to participate in this amazing event, Cobra Golf for the phenomenal club & bag set-up and Arccos for giving me the tools to look at my game from a whole new level! Special thanks to Enrique for herding us cats and shepherding us through the challenge!!

I played 25 rounds-17 during the challenge period and 8 other rounds to ramp up for the event and establish an Arccos handicap. Below you’ll find my baseline and final overall and individual handicaps from the competition.

I achieved a number of Personal Bests with the Cobra SpeedZone clubs during the challenge, see the list below, but these are the PBs I’m most happy with.

·      Lowest handicap recorded

·      Most consecutive rounds with birdies 

·      Most consecutive rounds with multiple birdies

·      Most FIRs & GIRs in a round

·      Reduced short approach shots by over 20%

I know some people enter these contests with sole goal of getting to try some new equipment and ultimately go back to their previous set-up. Not me! The Cobra SpeedZones are going to be my exclusive set of clubs moving forward. I absolutely love the gains in distance & improvements the Cobra SpeedZones have added to my game. #CFL (Cobra For Life)

I hope the Cobra Connect Challenge remains an annual event for MGS and Cobra Golf and that many more members get the opportunity to become testers. I think the activity and participation in this thread (74,000 Views/3,500 Posts) shows Cobra Golf that this is worthwhile annual endeavor to promote their new lines of clubs!

Lots of improvement there, and most noticeable the distance gains.

Driving handicap went "up" slightly, do you feel you were hitting better and that it was a better fit even thought he numbers don't say that because you do have a .4 driving handicap on one of the rounds so it had to be going well.

Good question, I think a lot of things went into the driving HCP going up. Those include manufacturing swings for the various limited club challenges, taking lessons one with the goal of using the woods to fit the challenge and one to get back to a normal swing and driving really exacerbated the elbow pain.

Speaking of elbow pain... how are you holding up?  Think you’ll play some more this year or are you on the IR until the spring?
