You need new friends 🙂 It's probably easier to make a friend out of a golfer than a golfer out of a friend...

WE CARE, Welcome to the club!

The good news is most of my friends have picked up golf in recent years and care enough to play regularly and practice and try to improve.  We are even planning out first buddies getaway golf trip.  However my friends differ from me in that they don't have the same manic obsession over golf that I do.  I tried showing off my new driver to them and they didn't get it.  Which brings me to you guys.  I've been reading forever and joined the boards like a month ago.  I was steered in the right direction for lessons then and now i'm back to show off my first What in the Bag.  16.9 handicap so my bag is built around forgiveness and limiting the big mistakes.  I love the new Speedzone Xtreme Pars and Stripes that I just started gaming based on 2 rounds played and how it looks.

Kudos to you! You will always have lovers and haters, not saying they hate you, they just don't appreciate golf or golf equipment like you do. It appears that you take care of your equipment and want to improve your game. At some point you are probably going to want or have to move on and find another group to play with. If you don't they will drag you or your game down. Not trying to dis on your friends, they are just playing for the heck of it.

Good Luck to you.

Only met one person in real life (in-person) that has as much of a problem as me. He knows i have a problem too. He had a Graphite Design Ad-Iz for one week and decided it was too high launch so he tried to sell it to me. Made me hit it. It was hard but i was able to resist buying it.

Great looking driver and head cover.  I still just can't get used to what they do with the topline, regardless of the benefit that Cobra argues it brings.  I don't use Cobra anymore, but I really liked the old Speed LD driver and the deafening sound that it used to make on the driving range.

Welcome to the forum!  Nice looking bag too!  Just remember, not every golfer is into the hardware aspect.  Some are more into the challenge of of the game, some are in it to hang with friends and some think it's a rolling happy hour😁. But, a lot of us here love to talk hardware so you're in good company 😁

I can definitely relate, none of my buddies are into golf more than a chunk of casual rounds per year.

That's a great looking club though, nice pickup!

And my hard to resist buying wasn't even because I hit it that well, it was just because it was a Graphite Design shaft lol.

Yep different shaft work different with different club heads.  Now about 10 or 12 years ago some of the Titleist drivers were the ticket with a YS-5 or YS-6 shaft and so were some of their fairways. The older Cobra drivers performed well with a Aldila NVS series shafts.

Glad I didn't buy that Graphite Design AD IZ just because it was a Graphite Design shaft.

This real Fujikura Ventus Red is working out well for me.

100% agree!  This experience as a young(er) golfer completely changed my perspective on shafts, and their overall impact on the performance of the golf club.

Can tell you one of the ways I learned about shafts and the relationship to heads. This was just one example. I was playing the last of the Hogan metal drivers before Call Away bought them out which was a CSS with the green Aldila NVS 65 stiff in it. My bud was a Wishon dealer and Tom himself was in his shop one day. He gave me a Wishon driver head. We went through 15 or 20 NVS shafts trying to match the numbers versus the Hogan. I finally put my other favorite shaft at the time in it the old Pro Force Gold 65 stiff. It worked well with that head and the numbers were no where near each other but it worked

@SchlangoFett I just started picking up golf a year ago I have the rouge driver...I haven't been fitted yet however, my goal is to get that done this year to help out my game. However, all the reviews I have seen on the cobra speedzone for those with high handicaps have been nothing but positive. However, good to hear from someone just reconfirming this driver is amazing.

Welcome and I concur on the challenge of friends that just don't get as excited about gear.

Really like the looks of the driver and very cool headcover.  Also good to see you are not afraid to mix mfrs in your bag.  Keep it up.  Find what works.  Play your game.

At the end of the day, it's not how, it's how many.

Hit 'em straight!
