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?

AMT white is close to the standard dynamic gold but the weight changes by iron length. Long irons are lighter and short irons are heavier. 
 

I have given my first alternate as DG 120 and my 2nd alternate as AMT White.  Both in x100.  Made request to change my wedges shafts since my Modus 115s I originally requested won’t blend well with the two True temper options

I also had to go with a 70 gram shaft in my 7 wood because they didn’t have the 80 gram  RDX blue

It's disappointing to see the supply chain issues that are impacting a lot of other OEMs are hitting here too, but glad to see that Cobra is doing their best to work with you to get the clubs into your hands sooner rather than later. Hopefully everything works out in the end for all the testers.

... I ordered a 58* wedge from Mizuno with a Nippon 950GH shaft and it took just over 2 months to arrive. Ordered a 50* wedge with the same shaft from Cobra and it arrived in just under 1 month. Granted 1 month seems silly long for just a shaft change but obviously Covid did a number on the supply chain and the number of workers available to assemble clubs.

If you live in the UP.  2 months it could be snowing.  Yea, it will be late August, but anything is possible north of the Mack.

 

Glad I am set on clubs for the time being.  I do need to replace the wedges though, a two month wait would drive me off the deep end.  I am a very impatient person.

It’s sad to see the supply chain issues bog this down, the Cobra Connect Challenge has always been a summer contest,  it it looks like some folks may not get all their stuff until the summer is almost over.

No kidding.  I'll bet a good many folks have seen new products get released over this period of protracted order fulfillment.

I am a dealer/fitter for Tour Edge Golf, specializing in their Exotics line, plus a Fujikura Charter Dealer, and I have experienced delays of up to 2-1/2 months on at least a portion of every order that I have placed with both of these companies, beginning about 3.5 months ago.  Even prior to mid-late March of this year, I was seeing delays averaging 4 weeks on some items from both of these companies.  I also work with Sub 70 Golf and New Level Golf and have had, and continue to have, some delays in getting clubheads and/or assembled clubs from both of these companies.

However, the biggest delays and out-of-stock issues (not to mention the extreme pricing increases) that I have been seeing are with the more popular grips from Golf Pride, Lamkin, and Pure Grips.  The most popular Golf Pride grip models (Multi-Compound, MCC+4, Tour Velvet), as well as Lamkin Crossline models, are on backorder until at least this fall …. some models until November!

I will say that Tour Edge and Fujikura have been excellent in addressing their supply chain issues, and both companies have resorted to using the much more expensive air freight method to receive their products and/or components from Asia (Japan, in the case of Fujikura; China and Taiwan for Tour Edge), which eliminates the long travel times and port backups for those who continue to use the slow ocean freight method of shipment.

At last for us Houstonians, we won't see the end of Summer until sometime around THanksgiving. 

It's all good though, I've got a couple large containers of Gold Bond ready to go for the Cobra Connect Challenge.

In a couple of iron fittings I have done recently I got fitted for the KBS $taper 120 S for Wilson clubs but for Titleist the AMT White S300 or possibly R300 are the go. I found the AMTs suited me well and I could really "feel" the club head with them.

Ah the supply chain.... Here at the bottom of the world we are the end of the chain. I suppose you could call us the anchor that occasionally gets cut loose. Maybe it's because we get left off so many maps (yes its a thing, there are articles and videos on Youtube about it!!) 😭🤣😎

Looking for a positive in the delays, at least the weather here should be a bit better here by the time challenges are thrown down😀 I'm blaming the weather on my poor performance in last years challenges.
