I’d hit a pink driver if it consistently went 10 yds farther

I'd wear a pink skirt for 20 yards

That limited pars and stripes driver looks amazing!!!

I just traded in my F9 for the pars and stripes SZ Xtreme.  I couldn't turn down the color scheme and the Blue Ventus.  It looks even better in person.  Yardage seems to be pretty similar to F9 but my dispersion is much better.  I played 2 rounds with it so far.  My misses are sitting right next to the fairway instead of lost in the woods.

I hit the SZ yesterday as my current driver - Callaway BB Fusion has a crack in it. I found that it was very forgiving and really long but did not like the way it felt. That said I was at the local course pro shop and they do not have a fitting centre so I did not have any option to change the shaft which btw was R Flex 45G, I usually hit S 65-85G.

Other than the feel - the way it felt when swinging, not at impact, I really did like this driver and I have added it to a short list to test when Demo days finally start again.

As far as colours I like the Yellow.

You know, you can call Callaway and they should replace the cracked head for you.  If your itching to get the cobra anyway, sell the Callaway and help pay for the Cobra!

I posted some pics in the What Did You Buy thread, but wanted to post some initial thoughts on it here.  Just received my Cobra ParsandStripes SZ Extreme driver today.  We had a tropical storm pass through this morning that dumped 6.5" of rain on us in about 4 hours.   So the course was closed and the sun came out, who was I to sit and let this thing go untouched until tomorrow. 

So everyone knows there is a honeymoon period, and like the human variety club honeymoons differ in their longevity. 

But man, talk about setting expectations for a honeymoon period.  

First swing out of the box, without any range warm up I might add, just a few practice swings to loosen up the old bones, and the result was a ball flight and distance I have rarely seen.  It started on a dead straight line down the middle and continuing to rise to about the highest I've hit any driver in a while, unfortunately I didn't have trackman, just my SX500.   Just from the tee box, I could tell it carried past where my drives usually end up.   

I hit another 5 balls.  None of the reached that one, but they were all within talking distance of it.   And four were in the middle of the fairway, I was off in the right rough first cut and one was in the left rough, maybe 8 feet off the fairway, I tried to "go after" that one and probably pulled it a bit low. 

Most here know I'm not a very long hitter, I "average" 190' to 195 carry and 208 to 215 total.   The SX500 obviously can't track carry, but gives the total distance.  It was 218 (into a still a bit of wind from the storm) and it had to be mostly carry as the fairways were still very soft and there was a ball mark about 2 feet away.  

Anyway, whatever value you put in the first shot and possible outlier of any club, I was very pleased right off the bat.  The flight was pretty much the same on all the shots, the other ones as mentioned were 5 to 9 yards shorter--based on the SX500 marking feature.  

I'll be playing tomorrow all be it on a still very wet course, but should get an idea of how it does during an actual round, and later this month when a plan I'm working on comes together, I'll have some trackman numbers on it.

Bold and Brite.  But i kinda like it.  Everyone that looked st it today, immediately said “its larger than my ............” fill in the blank with any other 460 driver.

The black face looks like it would be a good offset just curious how the white next to a white ball would be. Mental things 😳

Man, @Golfspy_CG2, I've already been having buyer's remorse for not knowing about the Pars and Stripes edition when I bought my Black and White Speedzone.  After seeing yours...man...I'm at a loss for words on how good they look!

I know about the honeymoon period too.  Mine started with hitting towards the back of the driving range and ended in June when I couldn't do anything but hit slices.  Today, it made sweet, sweet make up lovins.  I hit a wonderful draw that had a beautiful rollover at the top of the arc.
