I am hoping the new “Dufner” irons come in one length.

I saw an interview and his clubs are in the background...not one length.

With a range session and two rounds with the SpeedZoneONE clubs this is what I am seeing. Based on my experience with Arccos it will take 4 or 5 rounds to accurately reflect these numbers.

Driver -  240     3 F - 220    5 F - 200   4 H  -185   5 i - 175   6 i  - 165    7 i - 155  8 i - 145   9 i - 135   Pw - 120   Gw - 105   Sw - 90  Lw - 65 

Couple of holes on my Thursday round that I struck each shot well.

Pw was from the sand trap.

image.png.bb61275f8bdb2a8e292796b06ce59de2.png

 

Nice smooth swing on the hybrid.

image.png.4843bc263746f8970c9bb0529ffa8aa2.png

 

Solid 5 F shot.

 

image.png.0772dd53a9ce9d4db45b67f236001944.png

 

Straight into a 15 mph wind on this hole. Drive was off the heel. 3 F was a little off the toe.

image.png.c54f6c42b7eebca8810a26b230a338ce.png

 

As far as the ONE length wedges... I have hit several nice shots around the green with the Sw and I'm comfortable in opening up the face and flopping it and chipping is no problem.

I'm still uncomfortable with the conventional MIM 60* they sent me though. I'll try to work on that club this weekend if this tropical storm moves out.

Wait ... you have the one length SW and a conventional length LW? Interesting. And to read the positive comments from you about the SW is reassuring as well.

I keep thinking there’s no way I could do the one length options for the SW and LW ... especially around the greens. And based on their SZ iron specs, I also don’t like that there’s a big gap from the GW down to SW and LW. Looks like an 8° difference

I took them to Club Champion to see if I could find a better shaft and learned my spin numbers are really low but they still hold greens for the most part. I’m waiting on the new shafts but have been playing so well with these I might cancel the order.

Curious whether your fitter used a shaft optimizer device (i.e. Mizuno)?

He did not. In fact I wasn’t very impressed. He had never fit for single length irons before but he understood the numbers he was seeing. I’ve been playing really well with my off the rack clubs so I picked up a second set for the new shafts. Based on feel alone the new shafts are superior to the stock graphite I have now. Picked up about 6 yards a club, straight as an arrow and spin was up about 1,000 rpm.

IT FINALLY HAPPENED.  I got to play a nice round today in the scorching heat and shot a coooooool 70!
Butttt we did only get to play 15 holes before we had to leave.  I played mostly bogey golf on the front (+8) but settled down on the back (+3 with a double on 10) before I had to leave.
The Speedzone driver was awesome and I was peppering the infinity logo on that baby.
Buttt it was the wrong infinity logo (most of the day).  However, to have several driver over 260 from that spot shows the forgiveness of the Speedzone driver.  And when I did hit closer to the center (also in photo) the results are awesome.  I hit this one 294 and it landed in rough and stayed in the rough.

However, not all was bad.
I played two Par 3’s very well and nearly had my first hole in one!

I carry, but I don’t mind. Whenever I get out with my son we try and walk to get some good exercise. He’s been a couch potato since the shutdown and didn’t do PGA Jr this year unfortunately. It’s good for us to get some steps in and get him on the course to have fun

The gapping is looking pretty good through the rounds you've played. That's good to see, especially with the long irons. That's where my concern would be, but it looks like cobra did a pretty good job of engineering these clubs to hit the kind of gaps you want to see. Keep it up!

Great round and congratulations on the near ace! I would have loved seeing you get it, especially on camera. It sucks you only got to play 15, it sounds like you were having a good round. That pitching wedge sounded pretty good on that swing. One surprise though, your accents aren't as thick as I would have imagined.

I ordered the King Cobra ONE 60* wedge but is unavailable, as is the MIM ONE 60* wedge. So they substituted the conventional MIM 60* wedge. I have played all of my wedges with a 36" shaft for years and I am comfortable with choking down on clubs when needed. But you can't extend they shaft on a short club.

Thanks! Yes the sound and feel of the Cobra clubs has been great. I’m glad a turned it around on the back besides the birdie on 8 the front felt like a disaster. Some good shots here and there but generally wasn’t very tight.

 

Maybe I’ll try to get to the range for a small bucket before my next round. I was hitting so far off the toe and my Miss is usually heel side.

Come to think of it that PW was off the toe too. It was a great miss though. Haha

 

Edit: oh and yes, the “Boston” accent is really more prominent well within the city bounds, or among the north and south shore. Once you get out about 30-45 mim from the city like me it’s toned down a lot. Unless we’ve been drinking a lot.
