Cobra Connect Five-Pre Challenge Chatter-Testers Announced.


Recommended Posts

Playing catch up on this thread/test.  Does everyone have their full set of sticks?  If not, who's missing what and what is the best estimate for the competition to commence? The tone has been much civil.  It is time for the headcovers to come off 👍.

(I want so bad to place a .gif here 🙂)

I'm waiting on my woods yet (Driver, fairway woods, and hybrids), along with my bag. No one has the bag yet, two of us have all the clubs, two have 2/3s of the clubs, and the other two only have 1/3. (the thirds being woods, irons, and wedges)

The others are welcome to commence trash-talking at any point, but I'm going to keep it pretty civil. The challenge will be such a mismatch that it would be akin to dunking on a 4 year old and then getting in his face about it. 😉

Thanks for the update.  They may have to temporarily house you guys in Scottsdale to get this done - wouldn't that suck? 🙂 Trash talking and CCC has a rich and entertaining history... all in good fun.

Is this frowned upon? Cause I dunk on my 3 year-old and let him know about it all the time. No free wins in this house.

Got to the range again this morning.  First thing I did was open the face of the driver (lofted down 1 degree) and it sat better at address to my eye.  This allowed me to swing a little more freely and I got a much straighter ball flight.  

The adjustments I made to my swing continued to help with the irons and it is nice to hit the sweet spot on the MIMs.  When hit solid, they feel really good.  On mishits, the sounds is more harsh than my Mizunos.

Really really enjoyed taking my first swings with my wedges.  The 60 degree widelow was very easy to open up and hit some flop shots off the range mat.  I am curious to how it will perform out of soft sand and deep rough.  

I am playing either tomorrow or Saturady, so I am looking forward to getting the first round in with the full set of Cobras!

So how long/how many times did they soak in the white vinegar?  And was there a lot of elbow grease and some Scotchguard involved too I take it?

Initial soak was 12 hours (overnight).  Then rubbed down each wedge with scotchbrite pad.  Soaked for an hour.  Rubbed down with scotchbrite, Soaked for 30 minutes.  Rubbed with scotchbrite.  Rinsed with water.  Wiped down with paper towel.

Yeah I can't wait to see what the challenges are this year, and how the team aspect will work out.  

I'll be happy as long as I have the opportunity to show #teamyags the business in some challenges.  I gotta try my best to dish out some retribution after being challenged so much last year.

First round with the full bag of Cobras today and it was more down than up. 
 

Wedges are phenomenal. Absolutely in love with them. Driver was inconsistent (still seeing some really low spinners high on the face). Irons were inconsistent. I’m really trying to make these shafts work and seem to be able to manufacture a usable swing on the range but it all falls apart on the course when I’m just trying to play golf. When I center the irons they are LONG. Like a club longer than my Mizunos. However I just cannot time them consistently. The Arccos data speaks for itself.

Excited to get some swings in tomorrow with the full set. I did some comparison pictures of the Radspeed 6 iron to my T100 6 iron and the Radspeed 8 iron to my 620CB 8 iron. Additionally, I did a comparison of the 60 degree Snakebite full face  wedge to my RRTX zipcore 60. I really like the way the wedges look, they look very forgiving but still very sleek. 
 

I am ready to begin my one length journey with 4 hybrid through lob wedge. The irons will take some getting used to with distances but I hope to be able to do a gapping session before the competition begins. 
 

These cobra clubs look great and even coming from T100/620CB type of irons. When I put the iron next to a ball it screams confidence and forgiveness. Two traits I hope are true for the competition.

Tech question about cobra radspeeds and their standard GI clubs as it is the same for rads, speedzones, f9, women or mens:

 

Loft gapping from irons to hybrids.  I am looking to get my wife a hybrid and a fairway.  She has f9 7-sw, and a speedzone 6i with the f9 shaft offering.  6i is 24°.  The 5 hybrid is 24°.   I'm probably answering my own question in that we should get the 4h 21°.   What did you all choose and where did you split it?  What FW would you choose?  Should we not even bother w hybrids and get 3 and 5 woods? (3w is 18, 5w is 22.5) 

 

Is there more to it?  Is Cobra saying a 6i should be coupled with a 5h even though the 6i is a stronger loft?  Is there more to it with the dynamic launch angle per club?  I always just thought, within the same brand, if you stop at 6i, then start with 5h.

I would have her go and hit the 4 and 5 compare it to the 6 and see what she feels more comfortable hitting as well as making the gap work
