I got an e-mail from Cobra telling me my F7s were on the way. As always happens, they were due to arrive one day after I left for a week of golf at Hilton Head with my friend Peter who generously offered me a bedroom in the condo where he was staying. By the way, Hilton Head is a great place to go in early February. I suppose you risk some bad weather, but it was nice enough to play golf almost every day and the island was blissfully uncrowded.
Anyway, the long drive back was made easier by the anticipation of opening the box from Cobra when I got home. Here are some pictures:
I give Cobra credit for getting all the wing weights between D0.5 and D1.5. That is far better quality control than many new clubs I have measured. Fortunately, the lengths were all the same as well. I guess it would be embarrassing to see single length irons and not be able to measure and cut accurately. I can’t measure lie angles, so I will assume the clubs came bent 3 degrees up as requested. The only glitch was in the actual length of the irons. I had asked them to come +1/4 inch which would make them 37.5 inches. My Golfsmith club measuring device (you sole the middle of the iron on a moveable metal plate and then measure the tip of the grip) showed them to be 37.25 inches. Could be we just measure clubs differently. No big deal. Love the bright blue Lamkin grips.
