Well, well, well... this is already shaping up to be a very interesting challenge. 7 woods instead of hybrids, 180 yard 7 iron bombs, I can't wait to see what other delights the team will have for us....

So I need a shaft expert… I need help figuring out which shafts for the Radspeed irons. Currently in my Irons are the true temper amt s300 red. Driver swing speed is 105, no issues getting ball in the air and my misses are right? What recommendations on iron shafts should I get?

So far here is what I am thinking based on stock offerings. Very excited to try one length and see the affects on my game compared to CB Miura Irons and 70/80 gram TX shafts. Hopefully bending lofts a little weak will help with gapping as my current 7 iron is 35 degrees. One length seems like it can only help my game to have a consistent swing from 4 hybrid all the way through 60 degree wedge. 
 

Radspeed XB 9 degree Motore F1 60 tipped 1/2 to 1 inch 

Radspeed Fairway 3 and 7 Motore f1 70 tipped 1.5 inches 

4  hybrid Radspeed one length Tensei White 100x (debating going 3 and 4 instead of 7 wood but definitely like woods better than hybrids) 

5-GW Radspeed One Length irons $Taper 130x, 1 degree flat, 2 degrees weak (would prefer my stock shaft of x7 or x100 but want to test what is available to public at no upcharge) 

56 @ 54 and 60 Snakebite one length wedge $Taper 130x or 610 S+

Based on your current shaft and what is offered in the Radspeed irons, the KBS $ Taper lite would be the most similar (100g).  If you want something with a little more weight (110g), then go with the KBSTour 105

Are there any spies out there that currently game a Cobra big tour fairway wood (Radspeed or Speedzone) OR snakebite full face groove wedge? I’m intrigued by these and will definitely test them out next week at the fitting, but wanted to hear thoughts on those that have these clubs in their bag.

@LeftyMatt89 Thank you for going with the one-length irons.  I don't think I would ever go and buy a set of them, despite being EXTREMELY curious about trying it.  But in a situation like this, I would 100% try one length out.  I'm looking forward to hearing what you think, what you yardage gaps are like, and if you would do it again. I am also wondering how to gap wedges with them and since the wedge selection is more limited - how Cobra staff will set you up with them.  Again, thanks for choosing them and looking forward to hearing your opinions with them!!

Clayton.  I'm not part of the challenge, just kind helping run it.   That said, I have been itching to try OL's for two years, and figured this year, I'd scratch that itch!   I was fit by the Cobra rep a couple weeks ago and placed my order.   

4,5 Hybrids, 6-GW in Recoil F3 all playing at 38" 1/2 long.   I'll definitely share my thoughts as we go along, if I can do so without taking away from the competition.   Heck maybe I'll jump in from week to week, just so nobody else has to worry about finishing in last place 🙂

Was able to find a local store that had the Cobra clubs to demo and did a mini fitting on my own. Have to repeat myself the faces are HOT, also I noticed when comparing the distances the lofts are bit lower per club than my current AP1 set. I was hitting the 7 iron 170ish, normal 7 iron is 160ish.  They only had the one shaft though.  Was generating a bit more club head speed as well with these. I think I have finally narrowed my picks down, the XB Driver, Tour Fairway 2 hybrid, Radspeed irons and MIM wedges! Cant wait to get them!

I did a partial fitting today with John at Pro Golf Discount in Bellingham. I purchased my current irons there two years ago - they were an off-the-shelf purchase, not fitted, but I had hit them up against a few other sets on the GC Quad and was happy with how they performed at the time.

They didn't have every shaft available, so my goal was to find something that I was comfortable with. We started off with the irons, and after getting my swing in the groove started to see some good results with the KBS Tour 90 S shafts. The irons are definitely strong-lofted - the 7-iron I was testing has 27.5° of loft. The closest direct comparison in my current set is my 6-iron, which is at 27°. Average carry with my current 6-iron is about 165 yards (7-iron is 150). For comparison, here's a quick picture I took of the GC Quad readout with the Radspeed 7-iron. IMG_897948F7C4C7-1.jpeg.fcc8acfd9f664c23a1b872353f948516.jpeg

If I can ease up that attack angle over the course of the challenge I should get the spin up into an ideal window. I still can't get over that 124mph ball speed number though - I did not expect that heading into the fitting!

Cool - I'm from Bellingham.  I typically talk to Jason but I've heard John can shoot really low out at Sudden Valley.  Do you play most of your rounds out at Homestead?  Have to be really straight on the back 9 there!

Yes, please do.  Just played another round with the Arccos system and it's so nice to get the data feedback.  If you already use it, would be nice to start a second account and see how your game changes from the old bag to the new bag.

In a way you are able to do that. If you reset tags you can rename clubs and it will keep you original data from other or older clubs you have used. This way you can look back at those individual clubs. I did this for my i210 review comparing them to the i e1 irons. Also for the various drivers and putters I have used. It isn't perfect if you are swapping back and forth constantly, but it does work and gives you the ability to compare the performance of your clubs when making changes.
