Forum Thread of the Day: “Cobra’s ‘phenomenal’ King F9 Speedback irons”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from collingsom1a, who began the thread to discuss Cobra’s King F9 Speedback irons. After testing the clubs from Cobra, it’s fair to say that collingsom1a was more than a little impressed by what he found out, and detailed his experience in our forums.

“I was all set to get a set of new Ping irons like I do every 2 years. Then, I hit the new Cobra F9 irons.  Holy crap, they are phenomenal. Great looks at set up, nice smaller head, not as much offset as the Ping G410’s, nice top line.  Then, I hit them, and the universe exploded!!!!!!! “

“The ball literally explodes off that club face.  I was getting 3-4 mph more ball speed vs the G410’s, and the trajectory was heavenly.  I fight a lower trajectory with my irons, always have fought that, low draws.  I was hitting the irons with a 20-degree trajectory, 145-150 carry (that’s usually my total distance with the G410’s), and these rolled out about 8-10 yds total distance.  I got more rpm’s, about 5300 with the F9’s and they stopped fairly quickly on the greens.”

Here’s what some of our other members have been saying about Cobra’s F9 Irons, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • Lamb: “These are the best looking irons Cobra have ever made IMO. This is just insane. I am not a fan of a full set of OEM clubs but have a hard time not justifying Driver – PW.”
  • dan_mee: “Optics just too strange for mine. It’s like the baffler irons from a few years ago.”
  • johnnythunders: “When I did a brief test back in January the distance was impressive but what was really impressive was the dispersion with that tungsten toe and heel weight in the 7. Oh my. At the flag every shot. I will be giving them a full test when my shoulder improves. Also their hybrids and driver, but that new Mizuno is probably going in the bag.”

    “literally explodes”

    Ugh.

    Well I guess it didn’t go very far. I suggest not using exploding golf balls for testing.

    I tried them and didn’t think they would work for my game. I hit them so much farther and straighter than any other club that I feared it would make the game too easy….Uncle Rico is playing them, he can hit 5 iron over that mountain over there.

Forum Thread of the Day: “One driver for the rest of your life – what would it be?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from DCMorgan89 who asks an intriguing question – if you could only play one driver for the rest of your life, what would it be? Our members weigh in with their choices, with plenty of different drivers receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JDMRN81: “G400 Max with an AD TP shaft and it’s not even close! Incredibly forgiving, low spin with a laser mid-flight.”
  • Valtiel: “I’m someone who rarely changes drivers. Several years ago it would have been a 910D3 as well, and I still plan on building up another one sometime soon. I’m hoping it will be the Mizuno ST190, but we’ll see!”
  • LONGBALL777: “Callaway Big Berta Fusion. Straightest driver ever!”
  • regiwstruk: “ST190. Just has it all.”

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Viktor Hovland signing with Ping”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
