The bonus votes almost pushed @GB13 into 2nd place this week but nay, he fell just short. With @B.Boston bringing home Week 1's gold, here's where we stand after Week 1:

Time to spin the wheel for our member contest this week:

Congrats on your new gear! Send me a message and we'll get the order going.

________________________________________________________________________

Week 2 - FIR/GIR Burgers

Competitors: Competitors will be shooting for FIRs, GIRs, and Burgers (both FIR and GIR on the same hole). 1 point for FIR, 1 point for GIR, 2 points for Burger. They'll each submit their best round of the week, add a HC bonus (1/2 Driving + 1/2 Approach), and be ranked accordingly. Should be a great fun challenge this week!

Members: Hope you read the intros well. This week, a trivia question based on information contained in the 5 introductions will be posted on Saturday. First correct answer wins this week's prize of some Puma Golf Kicks!

 

Sorry fellas on missing the vote! Life got a little crazy last week and I've now got about 20pgs of CCC to catch up (I know you didn't miss me).  But like a nightmare, I'm back and watching---just in time for your performance to actually count.  We have seen that you can act (virtually).  But who's got the accuracy?  Let's see the bombs turn into darts.

That's impressive. Cobra has used DBM in the past (last year's contestants had it on their Cobra KING black wedges), but the problem is that DBM makes the metal so hard that it becomes brittle and impossible to adjust. My Maltby M-Series+ wedges have the DBM finish and it's darn near indestructable.

The MIM Black finish, QPQ, isn't as durable but can be bent! Quite a bit, since my wedges are 3 flat.

But yes, I have two marks on my 58 face already from bunker shots.

I will say the MIM sounds great.  They feel awesome too.  Dare I say... on par or better than my SM7s?

I finally got out to the short game area today at lunch and am equally impressed with the MIM wedges. I had a great round around the green yesterday, and I was able to confirm all of the stuff I was seeing on the course over about 45 chips today. They generate a ton of spin, land the ball softly and feel wonderful. I also love the leading edge and how it does not dig or get caught up in the grass. The practice facility has some pretty soft bentgrass that can get really grabby with sharp leading edges, but no issue with the wedge.

I hit some full shots on the range and really liked what I was seeing, too. Haven't really tried that on the course yet.

How's the bounce feel on the MIM wedges?  I'm curious do you notice a difference with the notch taken out in the back?  

Also, did any of the testers get the widelow grind?  Is that grind comparable to the T grind from Vokey?

Admittedly, my last lob wedge was a Maltby M-Series+ with the wide sole that limited my options for using the club. I thought that having a wider sole was beneficial, but the bounce on the Cobra 58 (versatile grind) is very, for lack of a better word, versatile. Not that it's a shot I'd play often, but I had no issue picking the ball off the tightly mown chipping area today with the face wide open. The notch really does seem to allow for the leading edge to stay low while the face is open. I've had some pretty good success from the bunkers with the face open, club cuts through really well without digging or bouncing. The biggest problem I had with the Maltby is that in a bunker it would often bounce really hard off the sand and lead to the leading edge shooting the ball out hard across the green.
