Yes. Any time you reshaft a club it changes it's ability as every shaft performs differently. In this case the Hi-Rev is 5g heavier and the bend profile seems to be slightly different.

So yes, it's going to change the club. But it's doubtful you would notice these minor changes.

Where do people stand on leaving the flag stick in? Played my first round of the new year Sunday, and all my playing partners were set on leaving it in for every putt. I had no problem with it being in for long and medium putts, but needed to take it out for the short ones; found it too distracting.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Depends which flag stick it is. Only higher end courses have the skinny fiberglass ones that help.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

same as you we've been leaving it in for longish to medium putts and pulling it for shorter ones. we'll also pull it if it doesn't seat properly in the hole and leans in one direction or if the wind is blowing it crooked.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I think I'd played about 8 rounds of golf in Denver last year by this point. Got to hit balls for like 2 hours on Tuesday, which was really nice.. then 5 inches of freezing rain/snow yesterday to depress me.

Ready for spring.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

If you plan on making the putt you should take it out. If you're just screwing around and don't care if it goes in or not then leave it in. For me the most usual time to leave it in is if I play a chip/pitch shot that ends up in tap in range, I will leave it in and make my tap in and get out of the way for the next guy that is chipping as well.

That's funny, I hit balls on Tuesday as well because I knew the storm was coming. It's definitely been ugly this winter. To add insult to injury part of my back fence blew down in the blizzard yesterday. The indoor simulators at the Sports Stable in Superior have been my friend. If you want to get and play in the Denver area once the weather gets better give me a holler.

I'm down to get together and play in Denver too. I live up in Glenwood Springs but I get down to visit family and friends occasionally. And if either of you are up this way and want to play there are some fun tracks in the area.

Sounds good. I could also meet you partway at Eagle Ranch or Keystone sometime. Keep in touch when things warm up.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Anyone game Cobra's One Length irons and if so, how do you like them? Tried some F9s out today and they simmed well but distance was a little funky. Looking forward to testing them once the snow melts

Don't even think about it. You won't be able to get the 5-iron in the air or hit it anywhere, and you'll hit the wedge straight up into the air without any control. Unless you have tour quality shaft lean and are able to already hit a 7-iron 190 yards, it's not going to work.

I currently have the 4 and 5i in the cobra one length in my bag with the rest of my irons being a stock set of Apex Pros. I went and got fit for just those two clubs and I really like them. Bo is right about them as they do have a very low ball flight. I am more consistent with them however and haven't found the need to go back. There is the occasional shot where you could clear a tree if you had your stock 5i, but know damn well you're screwed with the one length. There's also the shots from the trees where you gotta keep it low and you can put a full stock swing on the one length and get the extra distance where you would have been punching out short with your stock club. To each their own. I don't think I would like the shorter irons in one length however, but I never tried them either so...
