The only people’s day this should be ruining are Dodgers fans when they realize the team is gonna be completely hamstrung in a few years.

Even as a joking trash talk this one is well below what’s expected in this thread. Get with it.

We're just a regular-season team with Kershaw anyways.

It's funny how people keep coming after Boston sports teams as if we, as fans, haven't seen 12 championship titles in the past 20 years and a slew of other finals/SB appearances. I literally am out of room in my dresser drawers from all the championship t-shirts my mother-in-law insists on buying me every time a Boston-area team wins. 

I like how Red Sox fans need to always quantify themselves as Boston sports fans so that 27 still doesn’t seem like such a daunting number.

I miss the rivalry between the Sox and Yankees. Back when baseball was a big thing.

It never had the same punch after the sox broke through and won one.

Completely 💯% agree. We’d have viewing parties in college when it came to the Yankees vs Red Sox back in the early 2000s. Good times.

Pedro, Ortiz, Manny, Varitek ... Jeter, Clemens, Jorge, Bernie ... man, those were some classic matchups. 

And to be clear, I don’t so much mind the Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Revolution and whomever else plays in Boston. 

It just that suburban football team that is chock full of d-bags that I cannot stand. 😬

Baseball is struggling. Still love the sport but not the product. Miss the 90s and 2000s games. Always good playoffs. Just too bad it went downhill

OK competitors, here's a curveball right out of the gate. We all know that not every set is 100% perfect when we first get it, since there's usually a slight adjustment period. So as of right now (and yes it's still early), what about your set didn't jump out right away to you? Or maybe what isn't fitting your eye... yet? Could be looks, could be comfort, could be performance... ? Did you opt for something in your setup that maybe you're slightly second guessing?

Yes it absolutely may be something that changes as you get more comfortable, and we all expect that. But as of right now, what would you point to as something you're not 100% happy about? Don't worry - we won't hold your answers against you 😉 

I am not 100% comfortable with my 3 wood yet, it just seems to want to go left. I know lofting a club up a degree changes the face angle, but I’ve forgotten which way it changes it. 😬  Overall I’m very happy, and just thrilled to have gotten fitted.

Thanks man! I’m gonna set the fairway wood, back down to standard next round. Hopefully that’ll help straighten things out.

That's quite a jump in distance!  If the other testers see similar results, these could be on backorder for weeks or months.

hence the unconventional approach to our selection process.

I’m the only one who has pulled out the long backswing on the course. You should make @B.Boston and @edingc play an entire round with it before you give them more points than me. Let’s see if they end up anywhere other than the hospital.

Do you play for your High School Golf Team? Or do you ever play competitively? With a game like that what have you won?

I’m hopefully going to play on my college team next year, but since I’m starting college a year early, I’m not eligible to play until next year. I was going to play some competitive events over this summer, but all the COVID stuff blew up that plan.

Well, as they say, cheating may win you titles in the short-term, but it forever tarnishes your reputation.

Yeah, I think there are a few factor in play here. 

1. The C300 is notorious for being a few MPH slower than other drivers on the market. Not THAT much slower, but in conjunction with everything else, it all adds up.

2. A fitting really, really matters. I can’t stress that enough. Getting fit for the Tour Length was amazing. I’ve never been able to strike the ball consistently with a regular length driver, but absolutely can with the Tour Length. Also, I’m in a slightly stiffer shaft with much lower torque, which is allowing me to swing freely. 

3. My course is getting slightly drier and firming up a touch, which is adding about 5-7 yards of roll.

Excellent point.  The clock is ticking and the staff is getting very close to making a decision...

Interesting. "Tour Length" shaft was never mentioned in my two driver fitting sessions. To the other testers, was that something that came up in your physical or by phone fittings?  Are any of you using a shorter than your gamer shaft length?

Yeah I’m also using Cobra’s Tour Length. It’s 44.5 vs the standard 45.5 For Cobra (with cobraconnect grips).

A lot of fitters like TXG and True Spec have all their shafts at 45 inches which is typically a littler shorter than most OEM stock lengths.

It looks immediately better to my eye. And as [mention]GB13 [/mention]’s numbers eluded to, it doesn’t have to mean you’re giving up speed or distance.

I believe [mention]edingc [/mention] is also on #teamtourlength but the other two guys are not.

As long as the durability is there (which @edingc can probably attest to) I don't think there's a better value out there right now.  It has all the major features you'd be looking for at a great price.

I also love that the backpack straps on the Cobra Speedzone stand bag clip off so easily.  Once I got to the course I just took them off and left them in the trunk so it looks really clean on the cart too.

I am 20 rounds in and still loving the cart.  Maybe a ridin' dirty tiktok with the new gear in the pushcart??? That'll be the only free content idea i'll offer 😉
