I'd give a read through the previous years' challenges.  They (both Cobra/MGS and the other forum members) make you work for it! 

Historically there has also been opportunities for those that follow along with the thread to win some cool stuff as well.  So if you haven't already, start following this thread and get involved!

Like @B.Boston, there is a small change to my order as well. I will be gaming C-Taper Lites in X-stiff rather than stiff due to availability, and they will be straight-in from 4-iron to 58 degree wedge.

Shouldn't be too big of a deal, the fitter I worked with said I could easily be in X-stiff CTLs, but I hit the regular stiffs so well that we didn't try changing flexes. There is a difference of 5 grams in uncut weight between the two flexes (110 grams vs. 115 grams).

Sounds like we should have clubs in hand shortly!

This. It's not an Instagram contest where you just get sent a bunch of free stuff. It's hard work, and months of it. Personally, I don't think I could find the time to commit 100% for that long. I give props to the contestants each year, it's a grind for sure.

I second this. I have not seen the full length of the contest yet but can already tell it’s a lot and right now I definitly would not be able to commit to that so props to all those getting it in.

It’s a lot of work and commitment. Some folks don’t get that it’s not “Free Stuff Contest”.
I’m sure this will be a great summer for Cobra [emoji216][emoji106]

Thank you sir! That was fun and so glad I got to jump on the opportunity, already thinking about what I can do if I’m selected again at some point. I have never put so much into writing in my life! My wife didn’t have to edit anything lol! Also love stealing some shade on the cobra thread ✊

Just a little note from my soap box for all of the newer members or casual readers.

Yes it may look like the competitors here get to just have fun and get a free set of clubs but the reality is far from that. Being chosen as an MGS forum tester is the beginning of months of hard work. You have standards you have to reach that have been set by the testers before you, the forum is always looking over you shoulder and asking excellent questions you somehow have to find answers for and the Mods (who are the hardest working of all) are expecting your best at all times. All of this has to be done while balancing home and work as well.

The effort that goes into this forum by dedicated members can be seen in any of the tests. Just look at the Hogan driver test, the reviews in that are so comprehensive that Hogan could be just cutting and pasting for their own advertising. As for the SuperSpeed test, those folks are literally breaking themselves to bring us the most honest appraisal of the product.

All of this is because,  while we love to joke around, we take this place very seriously. Adam, Tony, John Barba etc set this forum up as a place where honesty reigns. The companies that come to us know that they will get hard work and the genuine opinions of the testers. That is why they keep coming back. They and Adam have put their trust in us and we need to repay them with everything we have and more!!

So yes you do get to keep the clubs, bags, shoes, balls etc but they are far from free. They are earned and I for one look on them with pride knowing the effort I put into them.

Now go out there, enjoy the forum and I hope all of you get to earn your clubs etc one day too 😁😎

Well said, couldn't agree more!! Even just the "normal" reviews I've done are plenty of work. I still haven't felt like I've had enough time to throw my name in the mix for Cobra Connect, so much respect to all the testers!!

I'm hopeful based on when FedEx normally delivers packages to our street... but it appears my wife's cousin picked the worst possible weekend for their small wedding to occur in NH as I'll be leaving tomorrow afternoon until Sunday.... The Golf Gods giveth and taketh.

The good news is my son has his first golf camp next week Mon-Thurs for an hour each morning so I was planning on hitting a bucket... looks like I'll be getting some early reps in with the Cobra sticks!
