My boys woke me up at 5:30 this morning... About an hour before their normal wake up... And by 5:32 I was dressed and ready for my fitting. I've still got another 4 goes until the fitting but I'm pumped and ready. 

I will say I'm tapering my expectations for the fitting since I've yet to see decent demo options for a lefty. I just hope to hit something in left hand and go from there. I have a few shafts I'd like to try but who knows what club heads will be available. I bet a few clubs will be ordered without ever hitting them... But I've done it before and it's worked out pretty good.  

 

 

Honestly I've been to some Cobra demo days where they didn't have a lot of righty options to hit especially in one length. I hope it works out and you get to hit just about everything they offer.

If I got the white ones I would for sure drop one of them in the mud the first time I'm out on a wet day...

Bad news, I also wasn't picked for the CCC5.

Good news? Maybe, I am hopeful. One of this days Rob will let me pass by and grab a few things from his office.

I'm home from the fitting and it had mixed results. The fitter didn't have any X Flex shafts in driver or 3W. I get it, the course is in an older neighborhood and there were a lot of folks interested in chipping irons and 7 woods (not a slight to @jlukes but he would have to fight Barbara and Randall to demo the one 7 wood head). He had a wide range of senior and regular flex and only a handful of stiff flex shafts. Oh well, it was still fun talking to the fitter. 

Some takeaways:

the HZRDUS Smoke Blue is legit with the Radspeed head. 

The Snake Bite wedges will appeal to those who enjoy grooves across the entire face (Edel, TM Big Toe, Callaway PM Grind).

The MIM irons...they feel pretty darn good. Pair that with a NIppon 120 shaft and off you go. 

The fairway woods are stupid good off the turf. 

The matte finish on the driver and tour 5 wood looks fantastic. 

I'll post my specs later. I need to do a little more research.

I’m sorry, did someone say Modus 120? 😍

also have to agree on the fairways. Those rails make a huge difference for me hitting off the turf!

What do you think you might change? Also why the different shaft in the 5w? (Just curious)

3 wood for me will be mostly a tee club, but I need the extra launch with the 5w from the fairways.

And I'm also considering the Recoil 480 and the 780 SmacWrap for the hybrid, and might go with the 60g Rogue in the 3 wood.
