    Re: New shinies

    Very surprised I've never seen anyone playing single length from 7 up and normal clubs from 8 to wedges. Seems an ideal set up to me.
    Handicap progress:Sep '17. First ever handicap. 19.Oct: 18.1. > 17.8

    Just got in.... The woosnam course at dale hill is fantastic, a little boggy in places but I'd love to play there regularly.

    As for the cobra one lengths.... I'm a 14 handicapper and I played to 13 today. Admittedly off the yellows, but shot 84.

    I absolutely love the clubs, they feel like butter when you get it right and the bad strikes aren't affected too much. The 4 and 5 irons are absolute dreams to hit.... And I mean seriously easy. 4 iron with run out was getting around the 210 yard mark.... I even joked mid that I may take it to bed tonight.

    The shorter clubs took a little more getting used to. Took a few holes to work out how far I hit stuff, but found zero issues with getting the ball in the air and found it had good control.

    For a first outing I really have no complaints, I really think they could be a great addition to my game.

    Happy to answer any questions....

    210 with a short 4 iron is long at this time of the year in the UK? I hit my 4 iron (Ping i25) about 190 yards.

    How far does your 7 iron go? I think the 7 is standard length in the fixed length set.

    That's 15 yard gaps between irons (4 iron 210 to 7 iron at 165) even though they are the same length - interesting.

    I want about 10 yard gaps between irons and that is pretty much where I am at.

    It'd be interesting to see what the carry distances are.... As the YouTube reviews said ; the "longer" irons do launch lower do may explain the roll, or maybe just those shots I hit today. Maybe into greens they would have stopped quicker?
