This should be a fun thread to follow, but just want to say it's good to have you around here again. And even better to have you out playing!

I really need to get out and hit the TSi series. Someone at my range had one but he hadn't even hit it yet! I wanted to live vicariously through him, especially since he was an equipment guy who recognized the AutoFlex in my bag.

I still can't get over the sound the TSi3 had when Mark was hitting it.  I need to go try it myself in an appropriate loft.

It (The entire TSi line) is honestly the best sounding driver I've heard in years.

Wait,  isn’t that longer than pre-COVID? 🤣    Seriously, glad to hear you are getting back on the course and achieving some level of normal life.   Hoping for a continued recovery and getting yourself back to better than you were before! 

Didn't know whether to laugh or thank this post.  Both would have been appropriate.   It isn't quite up to the pre corvid distance, but honestly not too far behind, maybe 15 to 20 yards.   So there's hope for improvement.

Update 5/20/21

Cobra RADSPEED XB

STATS:  10/10 Hit 11/14 fairways, and I posted this in the how did you play thread last week.  The 3 I missed were literally by a combined total of about 6 feet, and easily playable from the light first cut.   Longest drive was 221 yards (decent downwind and firm fairways 🙂) but had a many more in the 200 to 205 range, up from the previous week.  I attribute most of it to just feeling better on the course that day.   score was was much better as well vs the previous week.

Comfort: 10/10  As mentioned above, I just felt more comfortable overall this day vs the previous week, and it translated to the game.  Really felt like I was gong to hit every fairway.  The driver is a bit heavier than the TSI (mainly due to shaft) but felt very stable with the Ventus shaft.  I didn't anything close to a wild shot with it. 

Sound: 6/10  In the subjective category, it is much louder than the TSi, but then most other drivers are.  I wouldn't say it was annoyingly loud like some old Cobra drivers like the Cobra ZL back in the day.  Certainly not anything that would keep me from playing it, especially with a fairways hit % like that. 

Overall: 8/10  It's early on, but this will be a contender to get most of the play time for me this year.  I think a big part of it could be the Ventus shaft.   But I also do believe in the tech that has been added with the Radial weighting playing a big part of the accuracy. 

 

RAAAADDDDD baby! 

I'm still getting used to the Ventus in mine, but it's starting to really behave for me.  I do really enjoy the look of the infinity face and find it super easy to align while being a nice shape overall.

Yeah, when I was out at Cobra in the fall of 2019 and they showed me the SZ with the Xfinity face in hand, I was so stricken by it, I think I missed the next 10 minutes of the presentation, just looking at how cool it and the face milling was.

So glad you're back out on the course.  Thanks for letting us know why you tried these.  There are two conspicuous - contenders from major OEMs.  Care to elaborate on why you aren't giving those a spin?  

 

I've played with a Sim2 the last couple of rounds and am clearly longer with it than the G410, at least this time of the year.  I'm very tempted to pull the trigger on one of my very own.  I do lack a bit of consistency with it but I've only had it in my hands for a bit over a week.

 

Glad you saw the big jump in improvement one week to the next also.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

*So important* time of year is huge. I am sure there are folks that buy new and are typically longer middle to end of season (for me anyway rings true mid summer to fall peak season am always longer than beginning). I am similar with the rad right now where early season where fairways aren’t rolling as much I’m on average as long or longer as I was end of last season

Only so much time and yet so many drivers!

But to answer your question.  I tried each SIM Model last year they just didn't fit me.  I think they are definitely meant for swings at least above 95 and probably more so over 100.    

And Callaway, well I've only ever had one Callaway driver that I liked, the Optiforce from about 8 years ago.  That said, we have the full Epic line in our fitting cart, and if I get enough time in with the ones listed, I may add it to the pack as well.

Looking forward to following along and seeing how some of these do for you. I can't wait to get my PXG 0211 and see how it pans out, but have always enjoyed and done well with Cobra Drivers so the Rad really will be on my short list if I come to getting another late this season or next.

And it’s the opposite for those of us who live in Florida - dry gives way to wet very soon here. 🙂
