  • Explain WHY you want to review for GolfWRX.  Over the last few years I have used golf WRX for everything from club building to club selling so I figure it is time I tried to give back more solid feedback instead of opinions on posts.
  • Are you able to write complete, unbiased reviews of products in our editor review format complete with pictures and/or video?  Yes, I am more than capable and can take HD video footage if needed.
  • Explain WHY you want to review this equipment for GolfWRX.  I've always seen these test equipment threads but never jumped on one until this one just because of the product line.  I tested the Cobra ZL Encore pre-release at the Hartford CT Golf Expo and fell in love with the ZL Encore series.  It would be awesome to test them again but on a course.  Especially since the only Cobra gear I have ever owned were a set of forged CB irons a while back.
  • Are you able to test the products on a real golf course within two weeks of receiving them? (Two to three rounds is the acceptable minimum).  Yes.
  • What is your current handicap?  Last official handicap was 12 back in 2009.  I have since stop keeping track but would place myself in the 15-16 range now.
  • When were you last fit for clubs?  Spring of 2012
  • If you test product, do you agree to participate in its discussion afterwards?  Absolutely.
  • What woods/shaft do you currently play?  Driver - Tour Burner TP w/Xcaliber 6+ Fairways - R9 TP Ti w/Motore F1 85 and XCG-3s w/UST Proforce 59 blues

I currently play a 910 fd 15 with a project x 7c3 6.0, and a 910 f 19 with a diamana kaili 70R. However I am in the process of adding a hybrid and changing the shafts in both of these clubs.

Explain WHY you want to review for GolfWRX.  
Because I'm not a bomber of the golf ball and hit the driver inconsistently. And hit woods and hybrids off the tee a lot. So, I could provide some info to that group of golfers.

Explain WHY you want to review this equipment for GolfWRX.  Because GolfWRX is the first place I go for reviews on clubs and I'd like to be able to contribute.

Are you able to test the products on a real golf course within two weeks of receiving them? (Two to three rounds is the acceptable minimum).  Yes. I could get in more than the minimum most likely.

What is your current handicap?  16

When were you last fit for clubs?  A couple months ago(irons), last year (driver)

If you test product, do you agree to participate in its discussion afterwards?  Yes.  I am always willing to give my opinion on clubs.

  • Explain WHY you want to review for GolfWRX.
  • I am an equipment nerd, I love testing new products, but due to my fairly remote location, I'm not able to run down to my local golf shop and hit new clubs.  I'd love to give back to my fellow WRXers as I've read many evaluations from fellow members, and would love to contribute.

  • Are you able to write complete, unbiased reviews of products in our editor review format complete with pictures and/or video?
  • I have never been "brand loyal" to any one manufacturer, and I have good writing skills, I've contacted WRX before about becoming one of the writers for the site, but haven't gotten anything going as of yet.  I'd be happy to work out some pictures and video to help fully evaluate the clubs.

  • Explain WHY you want to review this equipment for GolfWRX.
  • I'm interested in Cobra's version of adjustability and the one club fits all idea of the amp cell.  I've always liked Cobra's design although for whatever reason I've never owned a Cobra club before.

  • Are you able to test the products on a real golf course within two weeks of receiving them? (Two to three rounds is the acceptable minimum).
  • As long as the snow is off the course by the time they get here, I'll be playing anyway!

  • What is your current handicap?
  • Currently I'm around an 8 handicap

  • When were you last fit for clubs?
  • Within the last week I went to an equipment expo and had a fitting done for woods.

  • If you test product, do you agree to participate in its discussion afterwards?
  • Absolutely, I'll be checking in on the discussion to see how they perform even if I'm not chosen.

  • What woods/shaft do you currently play?
  • My current driver is a Nike Machspeed black, 9.5 degree, fubuki 55g stock stiff flex shaft.  I have an R11s coming to me in the mail and a kai'li 70 stiff flex shaft, that I would love to go head to head with the new Cobra to see which one earns a spot in the bag.  My 3 wood is a 15 degree adams insight with a stock stiff shaft.  It's a few years old, so I'd really love to test out a new Cobra 3 wood to replace it.
