I wonder if the folks at FedEx track app stats - like how many times in one day one person opens the app to check if he has any incoming packages...

If you ask the folks at Arccos I'm sure they could add that feature for you 😉

Well I would probably lead their user base in strokes gained in that category, for sure

... Once they finally arrive 🤪 I am interested in your conclusions after playing King Tours for awhile especially forgiveness, because the latest MGS Best Players Iron test is a real head scratcher. As a Mizuno guy jlukes, you know how nice the JPX 921 tour irons are. My playing partner bought a set this spring and could not be happier with his purchase upgrading from MP59's. But the 921 Tours are much closer to a MB than a CB and how they ranked 4th in forgiveness while the much more perimeter weighted King Tours ranked 11th is something Hercule Poirot will have to look into. Having only hit the TaylorMade P7MC's (2nd in forgiveness?) at a demo day it was still very obvious the King Tours are more forgiving, especially low and the face and toward the toe. Of course I am talking about missing the center forgiveness, not how far off line the center contact shots are, so maybe that is a MGS test factor.

Quick 9 holes after work. Not a bad round, but definitely some things I can improve on!

Strokes gained are compared to a 15 handicap. 
Had three shots that hit water hazards, but two of them were ones normally out of range for me so I’m not upset (and one of those was actually playable so I didn’t take a penalty and managed to save par). Also managed to hit the green on both par 3s, which I’ve never done in a 9-hole round. My focus today was swinging easy - I never felt like I swung over 90%, but the slight loss in distance felt like it was worth it for the consistency and accuracy gains (especially with the irons).

I'm anxious to finally get a shipping alert email from Cobra instead of Amazon or Costco. At this point, I don't care what they send me. Send me a driver, a couple of 6 irons, a few wedges (right or left handed, don't care)...whatever it takes. I'm ready to get this thing going! 

Or maybe I'll just fly out to the Cobra HQ and build my set.

I like this idea - @Golfspy_CG2 can we make a trip to Cobra HQ a part of the challenge?

I disagree, I know he is holding out on you. He secretly had all clubs shipped to his house so he can try everything first.

I got to play my last matchplay round of group play at the club in apart of. With the range closed down due to renovations, I had to go cold off the tee and it showed. Started on the back, but steered the ship into calm waters and didn’t look back until I hit an iceberg on the last hole…

Seeing some stats, I hit the ball great, but got very unfortunate in the beginning with my ball bouncing off into the high stuff off my approach shots. Felt like Bryson only hitting 3/13 fairways but I had okay lies and good angles to the green. 4 birdies in a round is always a plus with 2 of them being tap ins.

***that 350 yard bomb off the tee goes straight downhill, so just a little skewed. Here’s the screenshot hah, I’ll get a picture of the hole next time I’m out there. We won’t talk about what I got on that hole though…

Kind of an update:

Cobra is trying to fulfill our orders, but is super busy. They are having issues with keeping shafts in stock. We might start seeing some clubs get delivered in a week or two.

I was told the KBS and Nippon shafts are back ordered and will take another month to come in. The most available shaft is a AMT shaft. Polling the forum as I have never used or hit with an AMT shaft. I originally ordered KBS $ Taper 120 S shaft for my irons. Does anyone have any knowledge what might be comparable to that in an AMT shaft?
