Anything you testers will be honing in on your game wise? Is there something you’re looking for out of a specific grouping of clubs to benefit/improve a certain aspect of your game? Early thoughts.

For me the big two are distance off the tee (especially with Driver, my current one spins way too much and tends to balloon and fall short) and distance control in my irons (I currently have quite a bit of inconsistency).

To build on that anyone have some plans around the arcoss data you will have acess to for using that data to work on your scoring? I found that data helpful for selecting target and such.

Are any of you planning to play around with the weights in the bottom of the driver? I did really well with my F9 but when, for a laugh, I added an 18gm weight to the front and a 14 in the back it became a bomb machine!!

I’ll get into my game/struggles/strengths a little bit later but fairway finders and 100 yards and in shots would be the two areas. I have not owned a set of Arccos sensors before, so I’m looking forward to getting a baseline with the clubs I have now and then really see how it compares with the Cobras.

First swing of range session, right? That’ll get you good and loose for the remainder of the day.

Thinking about it - $25 a pop for the weights on Cobra’s site seems a little steep though so I’ll see how it performs first before I turn to that.

I did the same with my F7, when I put the heavier weight in front it really came alive!! I still hate that it got stolen

Depends what I see on the course in the first few rounds. If I need to add a little spin I will swap the front weight and back weight. My swing weight should be close to wear I like it so I can’t imagine adding too much extra weight

Aah man, I’m getting nostalgic for my old F6 driver with the green accents 😢 ... had that club for 5 years or so before upgrading to the TS2. 

But yes, I switched the heavier weight to the front and I had a more penetrating ball flight and roll out. The great thing about the F6 is that I don’t ever recall going through a slump with that driver. 

The 🙌🏼 ... GO CANES!

I need to work on hitting more GIR to help me lower my overall scores. I think having one length and being able to have same swing from 4 hybrid through lob wedge will help with my consistency and scoring. I have not used arcos so I am excited to see where it says I need to improve and how the cobra clubs help me achieve those improvements.

It's a love fest in here. What happened to the good old days of smack talking?

I'm jumping on the Team Yags ship and will follow along as they roll to an easy victory.

Really curious to see how @LeftyMatt89 performs with the one lengths and how @jlukes clubs compare to his high level fitted clubs. In fact, how would you compare the level of fitting you received for the CCC5 to your current gamers?

The level of fitting is really not comparable.  My CC5 fitting was basically a private demo day with me telling the tech rep what I wanted to try.

My fitting at True Spec was basically the same type of fitting a Tour Pro would get.

Really going to try to nail down my distances to a smaller window, right now there’s always a choice between clubs of what to hit. Hoping the arrcos can give me better ideas to what club to use.

In my experience, the more I use Arccos, the more I trust it, especially when it comes to the "plays like" distance. There have been a few times I have questioned Arccos, gone a different way, when they had the right choice.

Of course, I might change my mind on Monday. Who knows 🤷‍♂️😂

I'm noticing that you all will be getting the Link to try this year, that's exciting. It was hinted at last summer, but I think it was delayed just enough to not make it into #CC4. 

Excited for you to give your thoughts on the MMT and also the Snakebites, both the actual clubs and the gapping chosen.

All of the reading about fitting experiences is making me nostalgic!

This is already shaping up to be a fantastic group of testers/competitors and Cobra really upped the ante with the Link and bringing in the copper-colored options. I know not everyone loves Cobra's design aesthetics, but they have really put out some good looking clubs again this year that I think can appeal to everyone.

Early indications point to #TeamChad being a solid choice...

I am interested in the link to not sure if I will swap over to it but still interesting. Was secretly hoping for them to come out with a secret black snakebite wedge option. 

I am leaning #TeamChad at this point as well but waiting for the smack talk like @Wedgie. Anticipating for it to pop off right before the first competition then I can officially choose!
