A serious question  or three for the testers (and possibly no gifs), how is the baseline going? Are your current clubs performing better than ever?

Are you having second thoughts about putting the Cobras into play?

Are you having second thoughts about putting the Cobras into play?

Good question.  Short answer, Baseline is going as expected.  Some rusty rounds early and getting better.  Current clubs are performing as expected for the most part.  No second thoughts putting the Cobras into play.  I can't wait to get them in play!

Long answer:

F8C27394-D54B-4CD1-9397-70FBF314012F.jpeg.e0c970f42d3ab5656a70c6e0104280b0.jpeg

My baseline has been going well, but I'm hitting way too few FW and Greens this year.  In 12 rounds I only have 44.8% FW off the tee and fairly equal misses left and right.  Now I don't feel like this has been as bad as the numbers.  I can remember a half dozen or so times I've been within 3 feet of the fairway, and on the side of the fairway I was aiming for.  But it's still not good enough.  I have been happy to see the M5 is about 10 yards longer than my G30 and I've had 3 drives over 300 this year.  Approach is also poor, with only 33.3% GIR.  this is being brought down by 43% short which I partially blame on a few iffy ball striking rounds to start the season, and some bad drives where I needed to punch out or couldn't get all the way to the green.  I'm happy to see less than 10% each left and right.  so once I get the distances dialed I should see more greens.  Chipping and Sand have been fine.  I've had a lot of success this year using more bump and runs, so that will continue with the MIM wedges.  Same goes for Sand shots.  My saving grace has been putting.  Through the baseline I am putting at a +1.3 and have two 2-putts on the year.

All of my clubs have been performing as I expected.  There is a lot of stuff that was new for this year so I don't really have any second thoughts bumping them out of the bag.  I'm glad I'm not changing putters because I've really been loving everything about the ER2B.  No hard facts or data, but it certainly does seem to be giving better distance control.  If there were one club I'm more nervous about/has the biggest shoes to fill its the 5-wood.  I LOVE my G30 5-wood.  I've hit it 14 times with a smart distance of 241.  my best drive with it was 261.  I feel super comfortable with it and the Speedzone is going to need to be special to earn its place in my bag after this competition is up.

No gifs requested by the gif master himself??????????????????????? Doesn't seem right🤔

I've got over a years worth of Arccos tracking that will be a solid foundation to compare the Cobra ONE length SpeedZone clubs effectiveness for game improvement.

I can't wait to get this started!!!!!!!!!!!!

Piggy back question with meme. 
Of the clubs in the bag right now are there any you think will be staying after testing? I know @B.Boston has the 5 wood that’s going to be tough to beat but any others?

My TS2 Driver and Fairway fit me well. The SpeedZone Driver and Fairways 3 & 5 will need to be amazing to stay in the bag.

As I alluded to above, it might be tough to pull the F8 4 hybrid out of my bag permanently.

OOOOORRRRR... does that mean I need a SpeedZone 4 hybrid now? 🤣

My mind is already thinking about what the SpeedZone 4 Iron might be like with a graphite shaft. Driving iron monster!
