Got a ring alert from my driveway and clicked to see FedEx delivering another long skinny box   
 

My sister swung over to put the box in my garage and sent me this picture. I guess my irons will be waiting for me when I get home from vacation on Friday!

One of my better rounds today but finally crossed off a bucket course for me. Warren Golf Course at University of Notre Dame!
 

The only clubs I have are the wedges. I love them, they are soft and I feel like After a few rounds they will be deadly.

I played the Warren ~7-8 years ago and really enjoyed it. I keep trying plan another excuse to stop in South Bend to play again.

I would play it again tomorrow if I had the chance! Wasn’t really long course but challenging and made you keep the ball in play, which was a miracle for me!

I played early this morning in Galveston, TX and the mosquitos really killed the mood. We were in such a hurry to get through the round I didn't get many good shots of the maiden voyage with my new Cobra sticks. However, one mosquito did land on my ball just before I hit and this was the end result:

I'll clean up some video and add some shots/round summary with the arccos. 

The wedges around the greens were the biggest surprise of the day. Just amazing feel and excellent spin control, even in the wet conditions. 

Either way those Copper MIMs look fantastic.

They actually frame the ball really well against green grass. I don't know how they will look against dormant bermuda in the winter, but the color contrast really looks great in the summer(as seen in the photo). This is also my first time gaming black steel shafts. The shafts don't draw your attention like a chrome shaft which means your eyes are drawn to the copper blade against the golf ball. This combo is very pleasing to my eyes.

Oh and the feel/sound is really, really good. Like flush an iron and think 'Wow!' Yes, it's that good.

Well we don't get dormant without snow so I can avoid that 😆. But I like the idea of a darker shaft with that head.

Here's my maiden voyage with the Cobra clubs:

Driver: Still need to work on this. Strikes are consistently high on the face that produce a pull/draw but strikes in center of face seen to spin pretty high and don't travel as far. I flipped the weights and saw a better ball flight but not nearly the distance I'm getting with my gamer. I'll need to find some time to work with this. 

Tour 3 Wood: 255y off the deck into a par 5 and 270y average off the tee. Just low bullets off the tee. Great stuff.

Tour 5 wood: I don't need to use a tee with this club ever again. I was hitting some high fades with it and then just hit it off the deck in a short par 4 and it flew the way I want it to. Love how easy this club is to hit. 

Irons: most of my missed greens (hit 13/18) were due to my expectation of the wind moving the ball only to see it fly straight. I struck these beautifully today. 

Wedges: +1.6 SG in my short game. Enough said. My spin control with the wedges was the most surprising. I play ping glides due to the wet spin control but these were excellent in wet dew conditions today. The versatile sole did really well with the tightly mowed paspalum.

Apologies if this was earlier in the thread, I did a quick search but didn't see it but it's also 7:30am and I haven't had my 2nd cup of coffee yet - how did the driver stack up during fitting vs your gamer?

@jlukes and @txgolfjunkie have received everything but the bag I believe. 

@LeftyMatt89 has his big sticks and @Brian A has his wedges.

@gavinski91 and I have not received anything yet.

Fingers crossed this week or next, we start receiving some more clubs.

The demo day I attended had limited Lefty equipment... They had one driver head (XB in 10.5*) and I hit that head really high. I liked the HZRDUS Blue RDX shaft because it's counterbalanced but I never got to hit the regular RadSpeed outdoors. I need to go find a launch monitor and start tinkering with the setup. 

Honestly, I think I need to add some weight to the head. I've got a counterbalanced shaft but with a lighter head. CB shafts feel better to me when the head weight is on the heavier side so I can feel the head through the swing. Maybe some lead tape will help out on the toe.

I've always liked Cobra equipment but have never really played it until last year. My SpeedZone 3 wood is unreal but my RadSpeed driver is the greatest driver I've ever hit. Once you guys get them dialed in I think you'll love them. Can't wait until the fun begins!
