@Brian A and @jlukes Last year I was sitting there waiting for the e-mail and text notifications… finally getting one… then realizing at delivery it was only PART of the order!  

I was sitting there looking at the tracking going wow they got it all in one box?  So you might have 3 or 4 “longest waits in golf” to go through.

For all the testers, have you needed to make any changes to your orders? Or does it seem like the shafts/grips/heads you all ordered are going to be available?

 

Cant wait for the competition to get rolling!

 

Absolutely zero word from Cobra and it’s been about 3 weeks since we sent our orders in so I think we are assuming there are no issues with our requests

Just got a notification from FedEx that a package has shipped!

Checked the FedEx app and it was my belts I ordered from NexBelt 🤪

Haha I try not to get excited over UPS or Fedex notifications anymore...Yesterday I was expecting a new carseat and my order of sub70 irons...both were loaded on the truck in the morning and out for delivery...but they only dropped off the carseat and rescheduled the clubs to the next day...uh ok? lol

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am most nervous about replacing my current 3 wood as it is incredible for me both off the tee and off the deck

The most likely thing they wouldn’t have would be grips, but I think all of us listed at least two alternate grips, so even though we haven’t heard anything we might not be getting our first choice. 
 

I also listed alternate shafts for a few clubs as well.

I will tell ya of all the clubs in the bag the fairway woods for me have always been hardest to find. Pretty much any wedge or iron will be able to figure it out, driver too. But the woods once ya find one....tough to replace.

Those are some yards right there man, impressive.

... So true Lacassem, especially for all good players. Hardest club to find and even harder to replace once you do. Just ask Henrick Stenson. Aldila VP told me he was trying to replace the BiMatrix in David Tom's 5 wood that he used to hit a hole in one at the 2001 PGA Championship but would not even try another. He was told the shaft was out dated and a new one would most definitely improve his performance but he just wasn't interested. 🤪

I had taken so many out of the bag over the years because they just never were a good fit until I took a flyer on the SIM 3W last year. It is absolutely perfect for me I just cant see anything replacing it any time soon. I will swing others I am sure but its gonna be a rascal to dethrone.

I'm not going to count this as a baseline. The white claws were flowing and I went unconscious on the greens. Proud of my round but this hurts the sandbagging effort.

The driver remains to be fantastic off the tee and I'm anxious to see how the radspeed stacks up.

I'm eager to see how the copper MIMs long and mid irons perform... The P770s are great but lacking In the 5, 6, and 7 irons. 

I'm with @jlukes regarding my 3W. I hit it so well off the tee and it's a bullet from the fairway. 

#TeamChad coming in hot! Pretty awesome stats for around the green.

It was a warm but windy day in the northern reaches of Bellingham. @gavinski91 paced the green, tested the wind, felt the grain of the grass. This was after all, his first potential eagle. 

10 minutes prior he had no idea this moment was about to arrive. He was in the midst of the CCC#3 use every club in your bag before you could use the same one again challenge. He had strategized for this upcoming par 5 and had driver available. A well hit tee shot with a helping wind gave him a real opportunity at reaching in 2. An opportunity that he quickly seized with a well struck approach that left about 20' for eagle. 

Now, on the green, an eagle truly within grasp he focused on the putt like a magnifying glass on an ant. He took aim and struck the ball pure, on pace and on line:

SmartSelect_20210603-153735_Gallery.jpg.e00c60e1b3ec1fa4604b58796203800d.jpg

 

With the arrogance of a Greek god he started walking it in as it approached the cup.

SmartSelect_20210603-153755_Gallery.jpg.29c9e1b6155e3d3ee4be793f3e43289b.jpg

And as the ball slid past the hole on the high side, he knew he had failed. That life was not fair, that his efforts would not be rewarded, and that maybe had worn square toed golf shoes he would have made this putt.

Capturing these moments on film were definitely my best shots of the day, and ones that I will never forget, and never let Gavin forget. 

Pure gold.  You live in Whatcom County too?
