    I don’t think this is off subject at all. Cobra priced their driver right in the middle and have a really hot looking club. They have a couple of really good players so they look to be in good position to grow share.

    A friend and I played 18 today. I was using the Cortex and V2 shaft. I adjusted the sliding weight forward a couple of clicks. My drives were lower but I was able to hit 8 of 14 fairways. Seemed to have less spin on my drives but still getting a strong draw. We determined the length of most my drives at around 200 yds. I hit one drive about 230 yds but there was a lot of roll out. My friend was not impressed with the numbers I was getting. We tried other settings but we kept coming back to my initial setup. I was hitting two balls on some tees just to check it out.

    Am I the only one in this group not getting a good performance out of the Cortex? My next round I am playing with my Cobra F8 just to compare results.

    I am still getting good results. Length wise all of the new clubs I have tried are all pretty close I still get the best accuracy with cortex.

    It just no might be a good match for you, that has happened to me before, a club I wanted to like but just could not get it to work

    With all the snow here, golf is over. When I did pay it for a few rounds, it was great. I put it in my bag and can't wait to hit it again. Very confidence inspiring for me. Sometimes gear just doesn't always work for everyone no matter how much we want it to. That might be the case with you and the Cortex...

    $540 Is the MSRP. I don't know Pings policies but I would be surprised if they don't use MAP pricing on their products.( Minimum Advertised Pricing) That keeps internet pricing and brick and mortar from destroying a brands value by taking a sharply reduced margin on an item or items.

    Lol the sound was bonkers. I couldn’t game it but he loves it, the adjustability with the face plate and weights is pretty cool. I hit the Cortex much better although the ball flight with the Triton was much more lower which I like so I did get extra distance and roll out. The Cortex is always finding the fairway but with that crazy high flight I’m not getting any roll

    I’m still on the hunt for a red 6R or blue shaft. Not having any luck with any Wilson personnel. Anyone have Lindsey’s contact info? Pleeeassee Lol. Otherwise I might pony up for a diff shaft.

    Hmmm. So, just like “twist face” by Cobra and others, but TM using it to sell, AI has been done before Callaway started marketing it. Ha! What’s “innovative” really never is in golf.

    My guess is that there’s a huge gap in scope between this and what Callaway did with flash face but thought this was interesting. Shows that the tech angle is interesting to people.

    Hey all, it’s like 20 below zero with the wind chill in Chicago, so no rounds for me for a while. But, I spent a few hours at Golftec yesterday and used some of that time to compare my old driver (Taylormade R15) with the Cortex. The results were about the same as my test on the Foresight. I was consistently getting 5-7 mph more on ball speed. A little footspray on the club face confirmed I was getting much better center contact with the Cortex. The other big difference for me, is that I used to be a big fader (ok fine, I sliced) and with the Taylormade I had a hard time closing the club at impact. With the Cortex, I was hitting mostly draws, and if I missed one it was a playable fade. I don’t know the technical reason for this, but it’s just a lot easier for me to close the club face.
