Cobra Connect Five-Pre Challenge Chatter-Testers Announced.


Recommended Posts

First off, the Arccos Link is a real phone and apple watch battery saver. It missed just one shot but it never had a problem detecting which hole I was on...especially on some of the holes that had a close tee box and green. The battery lasted the entire round and it was great getting it linked up before the first shot and then forgetting about it the rest of the round. 

If you're an Arccos user and don't like the phone in the pocket, do yourself a favor and get the link. Plus, if the cart girl asks if its a pager, just say yes and that you're a doctor on call. Win-win.  

With that being said, I'm curious to see who out there uses a GPS app on their apple watch for golf. I need suggestions. I don't need my phone, link, and watch all running arccos at the same time. I do miss having the ability to check distances on my watch instead of running back to the golf cart to check the phone app or laser the flag. What do y'all like on your watch? SwingU? Golf Logix? Something else?

I have also had no issues with the Link - the all-black version looks extra sweet too for people who are on the fence.

Does Arccos have a GPS-only mode for the watch that doesn't track shots if you're using the Link?

Snuck out for 9 after my little guy went to sleep. Arccos caddie is awesome. It did not miss any shots and it was nice not having to keep my phone in my pocket. I compared distances to my Garmin Fénix 6x and my rangefinder and Arccos was spot on. I might be able to get rid of the bulky watch for rounds if Arccos continues to perform. 
 

It rained today which messed with my putting, two three putts and one on a par 5 which stung. Overall though my driver has been dialed in so I am looking forward to how the Radspeed XB compares to my TSi3.

I go back and forth on whether I would like Arccos. I track basic stats, putts, GIRS, FIRS, penalties, so I see the value in data but I honestly hate having to fiddle with an app while playing. When I'm on the course, I'm trying to decompress and enjoy the game and being outside with friends.

Have you found that Arccos is distracting while playing?

In my very limited experience if you’re worried about distraction I’d get the link because you don’t need your phone and can play a round without distractions plus get all the analytics.

In my 3 rounds I’ve played with it so far, I love it if you have the link. As long as it is charged up and synced, you won’t have to check anything until the end (fix hole locations, move shot from rough to bunker if needed, etc).

I haven’t gotten this far yet, but supposedly Arccos caddie will start suggesting what club to hit, does that mean you need to have your phone on you to hear that? I’m not sure.

Don't forget that you are all in a great position, if the Cobras work then you have the old clubs as a backup. If they don't then they can move on to new pastures.

I've had Arccos for over a year and I like the stat tracking. I don't find it too distracting, but like others have said, the link is great to have if you don't want your phone in your pocket. I used to think the Apple watch was the key to ditch the phone and still free up bluetooth to play music over a speaker, but it kept missing shots and not advancing to the next hole some times. The link runs off its own GPS so it's tracking the shots and allowing you to leave your phone in the cart. I've only played one round with the link and it only missed one shot. They only reason I checked the app is because I wanted to get yardages that weren't picked up easily with the laser. 

If you want to have PGA-esk stats kept on your round, then Arccos is your go-to. It is definitely the system for data junkies.

Important to note even if you are not a stats/data analyzer that Arccos is so user friendly IMO it works for anyone trying to have a fun way to look at a round (not to derail this Cobra thread) but this is where this is at for data collection anyway. 

Love the details guys!

I'll echo what others have said - with the Link I leave my phone in the bag entirely. I've been keeping score on a paper scorecard (strokes, putts, penalties) as a backup, and you can use the button on the Link to set the pin location on the green so you don't have to remember that. So at the end of the round I just have to double check the number of putts on each hole, add penalties where necessary, and maybe edit a few shots (like change what Arccos thought was a putt to a chip if it was from off the green).

Thanks for the tip with setting the pin location from the link! Will definitely do that next round.

I agree with this 1000% I have been an Arccos user since their Arccos Driver days. I love it! The link and their SG data has been such a giant leap forward.so much so that my coach and I have been able to structure lessons and practice around the weaknesses that Arccos has shown in my game. Truly a wonderful tool, but it can be expensive.

Pretty solid round this morning. 
 

Arccos link worked flawlessly. No missed shots. Just had to tweak a few things at the end, but not different than the Apple Watch in terms of accuracy

Another round in the books. Beginning to like the arrcos system for tracking. Still can’t get any distance off the tee.

Maybe no distance but still gaining strokes with driving which is a positive if you add distance it will only go higher.
