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!

Gee, you picking the same side as @B.Boston is a real shocker to us all. So for the record Team Chad has two New England Patriot/Tom Brady loving JV Squad followers on the team. Anyone else really want to be part of that?

I mean... we have a history of winning teams... so yeah, they should want to be part of that!

I grew up in the Denver area, so my first three years as a sports fan were Stanley Cup > Super Bowl > Super Bowl (giving my age away a little bit there...)

It leads to a culture of #winning that the lesser among us will never understand, but I won't hold that against them.

If 6 championships is JV follower then you can crown us now 🤣. TB can pound sand. Pulling for some Bruins hoisting over the next few weeks!

I finally got a Cobra Rep out to get me fitted with the help of a guy I take lessons from, Neil Thompson (plug - he qualified for the Senior PGA Championship next week! Pulling for Neil and hope he crushes it).

Here is what I decided on and thoughts from the fitting below. 

image.png.e157c2a71dbfdeeb481f8549141b982d.png

Fitting worked out great as it was just me, Neil, and the Cobra rep. See pictures at the end. We had a Foresight Gamechanger (trackman was being used elsewhere) on site that helped hone in the distances, total spin, and launch angle. I had a lot of options to choose from in terms of shafts and heads. The one thing I did not get to try out were the MIM wedges, but there were brand new Snakebite wedges there to try out. 

Going into the fitting I knew I wanted to find a shaft that works for my irons and figure out what I wanted to do with my 4 iron through driver. 

Driver: My miss sometimes is a left pull/ when its really bad, it is a left hook, so I knew I would not be going with the XB or XD driver. I really just wanted to find a shaft that would fit my swing. I started out with the Motore X F1, but kept having a lower ball flight than what I was used to even with a +1 setting. I ended up gaming the Smoke RDX Blue as the ball flight, distance were better along with a much lower spin rate of around 2000. The matte blue finish didn't suit my eye online, but I actually preferred it once seeing it in person. I included one of my swings with the driver at the end. Roasts are acceptable if desired.

Fairway/Utilities: I decided to game the Big Tour 3 wood as a mini second driver off the tee for those tight fairways. This club was hot off the face and lower trajectory as the weight is all up front. I plan on using my 5 wood and 4 hybrid as those longer second shots in the fairway as needed. The club face for the hybrid does appear closed at address, but I didn't have any problems with a big draw. I did go the heaviest shaft as I could fine to make sure that doesn't happen. I tried to like the Utility iron but only caught it flush 3/6 times. When I did though, it felt and sounded awesome. Ultimately I think I could control the hybrid more than the utility iron.

Irons: Like @txgolfjunkie, I am going with the Copper finish on the MIMs with a black KBS tour shaft. Hoping they will look as slick as I'm hoping. The Cobra rep did warn me about sand based ranges as those will be the ones to really wear off that copper finish. The irons I game now are KBS Tour 90S and I bought them right off the shelf not thinking about much 6 years ago. Now I realized I probably needed a heavier shaft, hence the 120g. I really did love the feel as it felt like I was puring every shot. Since we are throwing out 7 iron numbers, mine was in the 175-180 yd range.

Wedges: I have had my eye on the Snakebite wedges ever since they were released. I got to try the full face groove around the green and out of the sand and loved it. Looking forward to seeing how the full face compares to the SM7 60 I typically use around the green.

Looks like a good time!

You and @jlukes were the only ones to not go with a set GW. Do you anticipate using your GW on partial shots and around the green often?

To be honest, I just liked the look of the snakebite wedge. I also currently find myself choosing to hit my 56 degree more in the fairway than my gap wedge when I’m in between those clubs. I guess it’s feel thing for me. I plan to use my 58 and 54 for shots around and closer to the green.

I'm enjoying reading about the fitting experiences each of you have had and you all are hitting it out of the park. It's going to be a fun summer following along and seeing how each of you get along with the Cobras. As always, I'll be following the one length tester @LeftyMatt89 and seeing if he adjusts to them as quickly as @daviddvm did last year.

I'm still in awe of that. 

I'm also curious how the testers sporting the Snakebite wedges will like them. It'll also be cool to see the copper MIM's, I think they'll look great!

Oh, wow! An old GC2 without the camera… I’m very surprised by that! 

I’d get the copper covered irons if they were a little darker. I’ve always wanted a set of beryllium Ping irons, so I rather the deeper color than these. 

Looks like a great set-up, and I’m glad you were able to get a fitting done! NICE!

I use my gap wedge from everywhere. Full shots, partial shots , low pitches and chips. May be one of the most used clubs in my bag and I like the versatility a specialty GW provides

Swings like that are the reason I feel so sure about #teamChad. 
 

@Wedgie you should be shaking in your boots!

Yeah it’s a nice swing but once you convince these guys to go on the TB12 diet it’s all downhill from there.

Will be interesting to see how this plays out.  Looks like a solid full bag fitting for Mt today.  Love those copper finished irons...

Oh, wow! An old GC2 without the camera… I’m very surprised by that! 

I’d get the copper covered irons if they were a little darker. I’ve always wanted a set of beryllium Ping irons, so I rather the deeper color than these. 

Looks like a great set-up, and I’m glad you were able to get a fitting done! NICE!

I'd be curious if the brushed copper finish from the Golf Garage holds up better than the Cobra Copper PVD finish. I'll be tempted to send them off after the challenge if they start to look a little rough.

I finally got a Cobra Rep out to get me fitted with the help of a guy I take lessons from, Neil Thompson (plug - he qualified for the Senior PGA Championship next week! Pulling for Neil and hope he crushes it).

Here is what I decided on and thoughts from the fitting below. 

image.png.ad39a68ab13d7f6a761da7d91f4c4d2c.png

 

Fitting worked out great as it was just me, Neil, and the Cobra rep. See pictures at the end. We had a Foresight Gamechanger (trackman was being used elsewhere) on site that helped hone in the distances, total spin, and launch angle. I had a lot of options to choose from in terms of shafts and heads. The one thing I did not get to try out were the MIM wedges, but there were brand new Snakebite wedges there to try out. 

Going into the fitting I knew I wanted to find a shaft that works for my irons and figure out what I wanted to do with my 4 iron through driver. 

Driver: My miss sometimes is a left pull/ when its really bad, it is a left hook, so I knew I would not be going with the XB or XD driver. I really just wanted to find a shaft that would fit my swing. I started out with the Motore X F1, but kept having a lower ball flight than what I was used to even with a +1 setting. I ended up gaming the Smoke RDX Blue as the ball flight, distance were better along with a much lower spin rate of around 2000. The matte blue finish didn't suit my eye online, but I actually preferred it once seeing it in person. I included one of my swings with the driver at the end. Roasts are acceptable if desired.

Fairway/Utilities: I decided to game the Big Tour 3 wood as a mini second driver off the tee for those tight fairways. This club was hot off the face and lower trajectory as the weight is all up front. I plan on using my 5 wood and 4 hybrid as those longer second shots in the fairway as needed. The club face for the hybrid does appear closed at address, but I didn't have any problems with a big draw. I did go the heaviest shaft as I could fine to make sure that doesn't happen. I tried to like the Utility iron but only caught it flush 3/6 times. When I did though, it felt and sounded awesome. Ultimately I think I could control the hybrid more than the utility iron.

Irons: Like @txgolfjunkie, I am going with the Copper finish on the MIMs with a black KBS tour shaft. Hoping they will look as slick as I'm hoping. The Cobra rep did warn me about sand based ranges as those will be the ones to really wear off that copper finish. The irons I game now are KBS Tour 90S and I bought them right off the shelf not thinking about much 6 years ago. Now I realized I probably needed a heavier shaft, hence the 120g. I really did love the feel as it felt like I was puring every shot. Since we are throwing out 7 iron numbers, mine was in the 175-180 yd range.

Wedges: I have had my eye on the Snakebite wedges ever since they were released. I got to try the full face groove around the green and out of the sand and loved it. Looking forward to seeing how the full face compares to the SM7 60 I typically use around the green.

I’m very interested to see the copper irons.
