Just got back from the golf show here in mass. I’ve been trying to be calm and play another year with my 790s…..I swung and was shaft optimized at the show……I don’t know if I can hold out a year for the 225’s…..soooo sooooo smooth

 

... Pro 225's look so good but don't forget the '22 Forged Tecs coming out next month.

So I swung those as well (believe it was 21 anyway) and they are veryyyyyy close. Was a real big fan of the look at address of the 225 and nothing to do with the clubs but the guys at the tent there were awesome. Very knowledgeable and interacted wit Bryan and I way better than cobra. For me that little bit is worth my business TBH

... '22 Forged Tec's look so much better than last years imo but I have not hit them yet. It is amazing to me that any customer event is not staffed by someone that understands they can make or break a product. I have found when the actual OEM Reps are there it is usually a very good experience. But many OEMs hire folks to run their demo days when they are lumped together at a Winter or Spring Golf Show and those guys are really hit or miss. Some can be real a$$holes to golfers that know nothing or know more than they do. 

... The great thing about todays clubs is almost everyone makes top of the line products and it can come down to personal preference for the clubs OR the company. Those 225's look amazing.

It was wild. Cobra guy was totally unrelatable and really wasn’t interested at all in getting us on to the mats it felt like.

mizuno guys talked shop it was awsome. The shaft optimizer was the real deal too.

You know you want them. I'm glad you had a positive experience at the show.

I've hit the pitching wedge and it is probably my favorite Cobra club ever and I am not a cobra fan.  Definitely a solid club can't wait until I hit some of the other clubs.

Can confirm @Lacassem and I hit the new 2022 Forged Tec irons.  Took a picture, but won’t post here since they’re still embargoed (I think anyway).  Visually they look much more refined versus the Forged Tecs I’m currently gaming.  They also had a refined, but familiar feel to mine, which I think as accurately been described as a touch firm, but solid.  

With the Mizuno’s I don’t know if it’s that copper layer or what, but they felt so buttery soft at impact.  I’ll want to hit them on a proper simulator and get some comparisons versus my gamers, but on feel alone they put up a strong argument.

... Sweet! No surprise Mizuno with a copper layer is softer than the new Forged Tecs. Something I will have to get used to because these MIM's are the best feeling irons I have played since my Z101's and MP33's.

I’m getting p770’s with p790’s in the 5 and 6.

spent the morning at Roger Dunn and it was quiet, so the dude spent a long time with me. I hit the 223’s and 225’s, the forged tec’s, the 790’s, among others, but the 770 was really nice on the metal graphite shaft. I forgot what it was called.

but then, I put the head on the Ventus blue regular flex, and the Angels began to sing. I swear it was the most incredible experience ever. Buttery smooth and soft, baby draw after baby draw. Probably 15 shots in a row that you could have covered with a Kleenex. Effortless.

so I tried a few other clubs and was all over the place, so I went back to the p770 again, and the angels began singing again. Easy 10 longer than the 223’s on Steelfiber (but this was the only other club that felt as good) good spin and launch and descent. It was like they were designed and built especially for me. But it was funny watching the other people in the store looking around when the Angels sang… haha

wow

We had a weather break up here and we're currently mid 50's with the sun.  I went to my spot and while getting a bucket the manager mentioned my 223's were being shipped.  Yesterday was 6 weeks so I suppose it's about right...As I said before, if they took another 2-3 weeks I'd be OK with it.  

So based upon that info, I said a temporary goodbye to my Hogan's...they're not going anywhere, just to my backup bag thats all.  

I'll go on the assumption that tomorrow or Monday will be the day.
