    Not only do I dig golf gear, I love gadgets and technology. I love what Cobra is doing with the Connect app, and am eager to learn more about it and see how it can benefit the golfer.

    Looking forward to more feedback on this.

    Really neat idea. I assume that the grip/sensor would work with any driver, and not just Cobra drivers?

    It is really a cool benefit of going to a Cobra driver. The pricing and technology isn't enough, they add in the sensor as well. How cool is that.

    Congrats tequila4kapp!! Interesting piece of golf tech to keep track of your distances, hope to read more about your user experiences...I better buy a smaller phone if I'm going to use this, keeping a large 5'7" phone in my front pocket might get in the way.

    It will be a little bit before have this in hand but one thing that jumped out at me right from the get go is this is included at no extra charge with the F7 driver, which has a crap ton of tech in its own right, and the entire package only costs $349. Something to keep in mind as we see other drivers push the 5 bills mark.

    Yessir.

    I think you'll get a kick out of it. It was one aspect of my F7+ review that myself and my HS kids had a LOT of fun with.

    As I understand the platform it's a proprietary Cobra version of Arccos. You select / link the app to a specific Cobra driver. I'm not sure if (or how) that matters for the app. Maybe it doesn't matter - you can put a grip any driver and use the CobraConnect app. But maybe you are restricted to generic Arccos if you don't have one of the 3 drivers. TBD

    Being that all the tech to the app is in the sensor, I would bet it would work on another driver, after all, Arccos was meant to be moved from club to club and still be useable.

    Also, Arccos did release a driver only version, our very own Canadan reviewed it on the homepage.

    Next time you're interviewing someone on THPTV I'm hoping to see a bubble stating that you're a genius hahah

    I think what's quoted is 100% correct

    Correct. In this instance it's about the cobra and the software and stuff. Should be fun to follow.

    Very cool idea but i am a little skeptical. I love the F7 driver and am looking to get one if i can. If the tech is gimmicky or you dont want it, can the driver be purchased without?

    No sir, but you could just change the grip, or never use it.

    Honestly, it's something that would not be noticed at all. The only reasons I can think of for removing this is in case you use another system like GameGolf that needs a different device be attached on the grip end or simply prefer another grip. Cobra Connect is not noticeable in the least; it's the most discreet sensor on the market BY FAR.
