@GB13, @B.Boston, @daviddvm, @Headhammer, @edingc... Alright Gentleman, who has started plotting which courses to play based on which weekly challenge is up?? Or are you all just playing courses you normally would? I played courses that I knew would give me the best chance at meeting the Challenge.. Course with wider firm fairways for driving challenges ect.. 

Courses with Bigger greens for GIR.. 😉... 

 

You guys are doing a great Job keep it up.. 

 

I haven't put too much thought into it yet.  @Lacassem was playing with his father at Highfields for my first round this week and I joined them and I'll either play around somewhere here this weekend or up in Maine next to my wife's family camp.  That's also where I'll be playing all of next week regardless of the challenge since we'll be up there.  There's always a chance we go drive to another course, but with the local muni at the end of the road its hard to beat the convenience factor.

I'll be honest - I've scouted out a few for one of the challenges. Due to scheduling, I will most likely play almost every round from here on out at a single course, but it's conducive to almost all of the challenges.

Sole. Could just be my imagination as I realized that on the range I've been using wood tees and on the course I use almost exclusively plastic...

I hadn't really been to the range much this year, so maybe it's all in my head.

I can confirm the white painted wood tees do leave marks on the matte finish.

I concur with this as well, I’ve noticed it both on the irons and woods. I almost exclusively use wood tees, and can say there is definitely more, at least on my irons. They do come off pretty easily and it helps me determine my swing path... LOL

That was my next question is it because of the matte finish. 

My previous driver had a glossy underside and the same thing happened.

I will play 2 local courses for the challenge that are pretty similar in layout and length, but with very different green speeds. I was playing one course consistently and they punched and sanded their greens and now the other course has done the same. We will be required to pick a course we have never played before in a later challenge so I will end up playing a total of 3 courses,

I haven't noticed any problems so far. Frankly, that thread seems seriously suspect with the number of one-and-done posters. I mostly play the Snell MTB-Xs, which although are great balls, don't have the most durable finish. I could see if you caught one off the top of the milling you might scuff a cover, though. The actually milling on the face isn't that pronounced.

Yeah. Zero issues. Maybe all those people were playing Cut golf balls or those second set of kirklands that had QC issues.

I’ve noticed less of a divot through out the bag. I actually had my first diggy one with the 60 on a shot that was much more soggy than I was expecting. I don’t know for sure but I think the irons have more bounce than my old ones. The Fairway and Hybrid also seem to clawing through with ease.

B.Boston’s #CobraConnect Challenge 4 Review - Woods and Hybrid Edition

998DBD22-07A7-4AED-8F4D-6C95C5864FF7.jpeg.92f1ececc5e8b1fbd94576a3b839c705.jpeg

Alright ladies and gentlemen!  We’re finally here! This is where the REAL competition begins.  Week 2 and out first week of golf challenges.  As you know by now we’re tracking GIR and FW on our best round with a bonus for hitting both.  The best way to do that?  Be straight and Long off the tee for starters.  That leads us to the first of our mini reviews.  This week we’ll be chatting Woods and Hybrids… so fire away with those burning questions you may have if we don’t touch on them in our write ups.

First Impressions

I’ve got the Speedzone 10.5 Tour Length in the bag as well as the Speedzone 5 wood and Speedzone 4 Hybrid.  I was super excited to get these in as way back before COVID closed all the stores down I had a chance to swing the Speedzone up against the SIM, Mavrik, and other drivers and immediately liked the feel of the Speedzone the best.

I wanted to get the Tour Length as my G30 was 44.5 and had some extra head weight in it and I always felt like I could swing free with it.  That was the first driver I had been fit for and man does it make a difference.  The 5 wood and Hybrid are standard length.  Cobra hooked me up solid with a Tensei Pro White 60TX in the driver, a Ventus Blue 8S in the 5 wood, and a KBS Tour Hybrid Prototype in the Hybrid.  Each was based on their fitters recommendation as well as results of my fitting at True Spec last fall.

The stock head covers are very nice, but like others have mentioned I wish the hybrid stitching matched the others.  I solved this "problem" by using my head covers from my old bag and think the combo of the three compliment the Speedzone stand bag very well.

Looks – 4 Stars

265483168_4Star.JPG.1d848c184a12648460d702e43e371290.JPG

Driver – Cobra completely nailed it.  The matte finish and power ridges on the crown really does remind me of a stealth bomber. 

IMG_0780.JPEG.5e1f2e5c25cdb0ab45143da45fc6964d.JPEG IMG_0781.JPEG.243af98f7a0e8032d128b939dc2583b5.JPEG

IMG_0917.GIF.7524f835281bd01d4ec893269aaa2755.GIF

It screams speed and still looks forgiving to me.  The infinity face is stunning looking and protects the crown very well.  Not that I’ve hit a single ball off there… no no that never happens.  I also love the white and red color scheme and think the stripes this year look better than the F9 did.

2BBFB6B9-AEE8-48AE-933C-F47617070B88.jpeg.3fbd02a178ac5c97f668bef0a253eb86.jpeg

 

Fairway – You can basically copy paste from above… with the exception of the infinity face… Now I’m thrilled with what I’ve been seeing from the 5 wood, but if they released one next year with an infinity face… I would need to at least check it out.  I think it makes that much of a difference.

CE3EFEA0-5F4D-4905-93FC-3772342DE578.jpg.0a801b08f99d4cd8033c84ea468897fe.jpg

Hybrid – It looks good to me, but something isn’t quite as nice as the Driver and Fairway.  I’m not sure if its just the shape or not, but it looks closed to me and I’m not 100% comfortable with it yet.  Also as others have said, I’d love to be able to keep the matte/white color scheme throughout the top of the bag.

Sound & Feel - 5 Stars
752220266_5Star.JPG.a40f2ef8e2aa7ea3e317486909589117.JPG

Driver – If it looks like a stealth bomber then hitting one feels something like this:

IMG_0790.PNG.e22f161a6ac2351ef9440f158fa1b0a9.PNG

IMG_0694.GIF.ab0364412bdaf17030cb06a54ce959b0.GIF

See?  Just like the tank!  It’s just a powerful but muted and solid sound.  I LOVE the feel of the infinity face.  It feels solid and explosive out of the center, and gives me immediate but not harsh feedback when I missed the center.

Fairway – Solid, Solid, Solid.  I’m really enjoying this off the tee with the heavy shaft in it.  I think that may be adding to the solid feeling.  Not quite as good of a thwack as the driver, but it is very satisfying and very consistent flight.

 

Hybrid – To me this feels very similar to my old Titleist 818 H1.  It feels powerful but consistent and not harsh or too springy.

Basic Characteristics - 4 Stars
265483168_4Star.JPG.1d848c184a12648460d702e43e371290.JPG

Driver – I have this set to +1* and Draw with the heavy weight back.  This is the most forgiving setting and helps me square the face a touch.  I’ve noticed that I can hit this a bit higher than my old drivers while still having a flight that doesn’t look too skinny and getting some good roll.  Generally with the driver I have a straight to fade ball and I’ve had several drives already go out past 280 which is great for me.  I’ve also tested out the extreme corners of the infinity face and can happily report ball speed is good on off center hits.  I’ve hit a few balls 260+ off of the wrong infinity logo on the face (read: very high, very toe).

Fairway – This is set opposite of the driver, -1.5* so playing at 17*.  This is also how I had my previous 5 wood set and allows me to work the ball both ways with some level of comfort.  It’s hitting all the right windows and while I normally don’t this club wouldn’t stop me from going after a green at 240 yards (but I usually wouldn’t want to bring any additional trouble into play).

Hybrid – I like how this performs on good hits, but it feels like I need to make a slice swing, or a real push swing to keep it from moving left.  This is something that happens to me with a lot of hybrids, but I still prefer them to long irons because my contact and ball speed is much better.  As you can see from my 3 attempted drives with it 2 went hooking left and one was a push to the right.  Not ideal at the moment.  Down the road I may want to give the Forged Tec Utility a try on a monitor against it, but I expect to get more comfortable with the hybrid as the competition moves on.

So far on course I’ve been seeing my average drive 5 yards further than my M5, which was even further than my G30.  And honestly I’m not even really hitting the center all that well yet.  I don’t think I can ask any more from the driver at this point other than my swing being better.  It’s been great and surprisingly forgiving (with the Tour Length and weight back it has nearly the same MOI as my old G30 from what I can see online).  The 5-wood has also been really good.  I didn’t think it would be so easy to replace the G30 5-wood, but this Speedzone and Ventus combo flat out performs.  I expect my averages will be about the same but I prefer the looks and sound/feel of this over the G30.  They Hybrid has had a hook or block tendency for me.  I’m still trying to figure it out, but I nearly lost a few balls already with the hybrid off the tee.  I’m wondering if a flat setting would have been a useful addition here as my irons are all 2* flat.

 

Miscellaneous – 4 Stars

Cobra was awesome and hooked me up with some excellent shafts and the whole Speedzone lineup is fast and surprisingly forgiving.  I’m not totally sold on the sensors built into the grips yet.  I think I prefer the screw in sensors from a feel standpoint as the end of the Sonar grips can be a little mushy at the end on some of the clubs.

Side note: Outside of that minor complaint I am really enjoying the Sonar grips the more I play with them.

Is it too early to say that the Speedzone Driver and 5 wood are locks in my bag for the next several years???  I’m not really sure that it is.  They are everything I look for in a driver and fairway.  Like I mentioned earlier, an infinity face fairway would be awesome and I’d want to check it out, but I’m not really sure that either of these clubs will be beaten from a performance perspective for quite some time.  And I love the look, sound, and feel of these clubs.  I really think more OEMs should consider offering a stock “tour length” option especially when most have some sort of adjustable weight, so It’s not really adding a lot of SKUs or parts for them.

They Hybrid is going to have to earn its spot.  I have hit some really good shots that have had very pleasing flights, but I’ve also had a few low running hooks that made me get rid of the G30 hybrids for something I could get a fade bias with (the Titleist 818 H1 with fade weight).  The lack of adjustability may be what keeps it out of the bag at the end of this competition, but I may also try a strip or two of lead tape out on the toe to see if I can balance the flight out.

Woods and Hybrids Overall Rating - 4 Stars

Cobra has hit a home run for me with the Speedzone driver and fairway.  They look sound and feel flat out awesome and I feel confident when I have them in my hand.  The Hybrid needs a little work right now, but I’m hopeful that more time with it will increase my comfort factor and let the performance shine through. 

 

Great write-up!

Infinity face on the fairways in 2021 maybe?

Compared to your previous clubs, have any of you guys noticed a difference or a benefit from the rails on the fairway woods and hybrids?

I previously used an F8 hybrid and loved the rails. That experience is carrying over to the SpeedZones.

Is there much of a difference in the size/placement of the rails between SZ and F8---or the general size/shape of the clubs?

I'd love to know the background story on the 1FIR + 1GIR = 2 Burgers as well 🤔.

I simulated the State Tournament 1,000,000 Times - High School ...

Welp I am fully lost on what are the Burgers you are referring to. but I am hungry right now.

Does everyone like the new cobra symbol over the old as well? I know for me I really like it as an alignment aid.

I believe burgers is the double points for fairway and green hit in the same hole right? I could be wrong...been wrong before....but pretty sure....
