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! :)

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration. 
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      Yep.  The first hole at TPC looks like they buried an elephant.  I lost a playing partner on that green. The course in the above posts I believe is The Bayou Club.  Checking tonight.  Not sure the hole number yet, but the green is next to the road.  If that's the course, I'll work out the hole number.  Their scorecards don't show hole layout, so I'll have to walk through the holes on the card. BTW, there is (or was) a hole at the Corry Pa muni (North Hills) that could have a 225 foot putt.  That's over 70 yards!  They don't make like that any more! Plus, the Links of Lake Bernadette has a shared green.  Haven't played there in a while, but as I recall the green was "U" shaped with bushes in the "U".  Had to putt to the bottom of the "U", then back on the other side.  Need to Google that later. St Andrews has shared greens but I don't recall any being like that.
