  1. The answer is: that's why they make blue ones and red ones.
  2. IMO which is often incorrect a light shaft in a driver may have some benefit in increased swing speed resulting in a higher launch and increased distance at the risk of slices or hooks. Fairway woods and hybrids are better served with having more control over the trajectory of one's shot rather than pure swing speed.
  3. The trend of a BT speaker is new at the clubs where I play. If someone wants to listen to I pods or earphones that is fine. I do not want to anyone else's music especially when making a swing.
  4. I will start by saying I HATE the new trend of music being played on the course. This trend seems to have started about 2 years ago and seems to be accelerating. Players blaring all sorts of noise, music, while playing are inconsiderate of others IMO. I have had to ask playing partners to turn the music off especially when I am addressing the ball. Am I a curmudgeon or are there others with the same opinion?
  5. I have been playing with an iron set consisting of 7 and 8 single length Cobra F9 and 9,10,11 Honma. My wedges are a 52 Cobra or a 54 Cleveland and a 56 single length Cobra. Ping G410 driver and 5 wood and a Cobra 7 wood Ping 5 crossover and Ping G410 6 hybrid. Anyone else with a mixed up set like mine? Any other comments or suggestions?
  6. Call Cobra they will replace it asap. This is not normal you just got a defective head.
  7. It's not what color the cat is it is how well does it catch mice: Chairman Mao. If you putt well with it keep it.
  8. High prices command high expectations for customer service. Very disappointing. My guess is they will not be with us for very long. There is one here. A friend who has trouble breaking 100 went there can back $4000 lighter, nice shafts I may add. Still cannot break 100.
  9. There was a Callaway demo day at the club today. I hit a few shots with trackman with both my 7 and the Mavrek 7. Results were similar considering the Callaway's are 3 degrees stronger. The Callaway guy said I do not hit the ball high because of my swing. He asked what I shot today, 74. He asked why do I want to change. I have come to the conclusion that I deloft the clubs at impact giving me extra distance and lower ball flight. In other words my 7 acts like a 6. As far as lessons at my advanced age I want to avoid them I am happy shooting 75 to 80 with an occasional "my age"
  10. I agree it is my technique but as my unnamed sport announcer friend says: You play better than 97% of 65+ year old so quit complaining.
  11. My 7i carries about 158 to 163 ball flight is generally straight mishits are rare but they are pulls or hooks. I may be hooding the club at impact but I am beginning to think the shaft is the issue. I did move the ball way forward near my right foot and hit a bit higher this weekend. I had some ping g400 that I hit higher I changed clubs for no good reason. When demo days come back I am going to try different clubs but being left handed limits selection. When I played well, 2-3 over from black tees, I had some Mizno blades that I hit real high but those days are in the past. I still play well enough so as to not to embarrass myself. This is the answer I did not understand: Then you should look at your technique not your clubs. Or both. the "or both" part
  12. I did not know what a Mevo was till I googled it so obviously I don't have one. I just judge my ball height against some young decent, scratch to 3, young guys I play with. My problem is with pins in the front when I am 145+ out. Ball hits in front and rolls to rear of green. I used to be able to get close to those pins when I could hit a 9 145. Maybe I am just too old. I still shoot the same score 76+- but front different tees.
