Big difference Tour Edge Bazooka ht max - Cobra s3 max game improvement

7 posts in this topic

First of all, hello to all and my admiration to this forum! i am from Spain and there is nothing no way near as this forum in my language.

As the forum, it is also hard to find good set of clubs at good prices like in US, so im buying one abroad.

Im looking for a game improvement set, and after researching in this forum, i have a question:

I have found the Cobra S3 max irons set for around 270usd, and Tour Edge Bazooka HT max (3 and 4 hybrid, 5-PW iron) for 177usd.

Prices are with shipment included.

The question is, is there really a big difference as the price says? Theres not really a lot of info about the bazookas anywhere, and in this forum when someone asked, they reccomended others..

what is the better choice? thank you very much for your time

PD: sorry for my english

Cobra are a well known golf club manufacturer. Rickie Fowler, amongst others plays their clubs on the PGA Tour. Although I haven't ever seen the S3 Max irons so I can't offer you any information about them.

I've never heard of Tour Edge, so they're definitely not a brand of clubs on a level with Cobra and other known manufacturers. That doesn't necessarily mean the clubs aren't any good, but unless you had a good reason to believe they're going to work well for you (ie. you've already played them before) then I'd steer clear and pay the extra for a known brand.

Thank you for the reply. I hadn't heard aboutTour Edge either, but saw them on a Golf Digest magazine thread about game improvement sets, and looked them up online, saw they had a fairly "cheap" price and coming with two hybrids, kept them in mind.

It is impossible to find them here in any store to try them out, so its a bit of a gamble to get them, so i might as well just get the Cobra's.

Whoa now be careful when you say they are a "cheap" brand...Tour Edge is a more affordable version of Tour Edge Exotics and they are very much known and make very good clubs.  TEE are definately as widely available as other brands but they are still very good sticks.

In cheap between " " i was meaning affordable, yes :)

Also forgot to note in the prices i mentioned, that the Bazookas are a 8 stick set, and the Cobra's, 5 stick set

new addition to the list, Callaway Diablo Edge, set of 7 clubs, 4H and 5-PW, priced at 370usd shipped.

I've seen nothing but fantastic reviews for these, but are they worth the extra $$?

thank you! :)

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
