First Look: Cobra Golf King F7+ Driver

I have a dilemma. I’m playing in my first tournament of 2017 in three hours and I have a shakeup brewing in the gamer bag.   I hit my current gamer driver very, very well.  I have fantastic accuracy and great distance with my “Snakes on a Plane” driver, also known as an Air Force One (I get my cheesy b-rated movies mixed up).  I have a new snake themed driver which is looking to dethrone the Snakes on a Plane, the new Cobra Golf King F7+.  Look at this beauty.

The smart thing to do would be to simply warm up and get ready as normal, and play the driver I’m used to hitting. That’s what I will do.  It will be painful knowing I have this one to try out.  With all of the adjustment capabilities of the King F7+ I’m going to probably need a lengthy range session or session on a launch monitor (I prefer real balls, real range) to see which loft and weighting configuration works best for my granny over the top dual chicken wing epileptic seizure unfolding lawn chair swing.

Maybe after the tournament I’ll start testing out the King F7+.  And I will likely regret not putting it in play, but it wouldn’t be fair to my playing partner to test out a never-before gamed club in a tournament.  The good news is I’ll be back to play tomorrow and hopefully before the round I will find the right setting for the King F7+ so I can start gaming it.

Key Features

The F7+ has some cool features and what does the “+” mean?

  • Fully adjustable center of gravity positions via movable weights
  • Adjustable lofts from 8 to 11 degrees with varying draw/neutral positions
  • (The +) Arccos tracking in the grip syncs with smartphone to show driving distance an accuracy
  • More features and construction in my full review

Okay I need to get rolling.  I have a tournament to compete in!  Stay tuned here and on my social networks for reports on the tourney and the King F7+.  Watch for my review coming soon, but not a 3-range-ball review like other review sites…  🙂


“Skullicious” Tattoo Golf Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts Review

“What are you doing in there?” the lovely bride inquired. “Counting the skulls on my new shorts,” I replied. 

Hats off to Tattoo Golf for shaking up the golf apparel world and making it more fun and less stuffy.  Love the rock-&-roll attitude and of course, based on the HOG logo, I love skulls.

Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts

Speaking of skulls, I’ve been sporting Tattoo Golf’s “skullicious” Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts.  I counted them up, and there are about 100 skulls on the outside these shorts, right up my alley.  If you count the inner waistband, there are closer to 200 skulls.

Specs, Style, Performance

Tattoo Golf could rest on its laurels and be satisfied with making the golf shorts with the most skulls on them, but that’s not how they roll.  TG isn’t just a gimmick brand.  These are real “pro” level shorts.  The 100% polyester ProCool fabric is super-light and comfortable and provides moisture wicking to help keep the wearer cool and dry, whether on the golf course or at at Mastodon concert.  The style is 100% Tattoo Golf.  100% cool.

The shorts perform brilliantly for me on the golf course, adapting and stretching with every granny over the top dual chicken wing part of my seizure-like unfolding lawn chair golf swing. And trust me, that’s not easy to do.

Caring for these shorts is as easy Freddie Couples’ golf swing.  The polyester doesn’t shrink and doesn’t wrinkle.  Wear them right out of the dryer, which you can use freely.

Final Thoughts

As Tattoo Golf says, these shorts are lightweight and heavy in style.  I like my style and my rock and roll heavy.

Devereux Cameron Golf Polo Review

I’ve been sporting some “proper threads” from golf apparel and lifestyle brand Devereux.  Say hello to the Cameron Golf Polo.

About Devereux

Devereux is an excellent golf apparel brand.  Every product I’ve checked out in the line is superior quality.  The fabrics, designs, and comfort in the Devereux brand are the highest quality available.

Cameron Golf Polo Details

The Cameron is a fantastic polo comprised of 96% polyester and 4% spandex.  The “air-flow knit” of the fabric is a combination of two knitting styles.  The knit is designed to air condition the wearer and help regulate the body temperature.  The fabric provides “moisture wicking” which is the process of drawing moisture (sweat) from the body and moving it to the outside of the fabric, where it evaporates.

Sizes/Colors

The polo comes in two colors, Agave (pictured) and Waves, a blue and white stripe.  Sizes for the Cameron include: small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.

On the Course/On the Town

The style and comfort of the Cameron are fantastic, whether I’m crushing massive drives on the golf course, writing Blogizer Prize winning golf reviews, or coding at work.  In the golf swing the shirt moves with my body, even in the strange jerky un-natural contortions my dual chicken wing granny over the top move has.

Final Thoughts

Total comfort, performance and style are why the Devereux Cameron golf polo is the real-deal.  At $85 the Cameron isn’t the least expensive polo out there, nor is it the most expensive though.  The Cameron is as good as any high-end polo I’ve worn.

Father’s Day is coming up.  Pick up pops a Cameron and he’ll be the most stylish and cool person in his group.

aahSoles Green Coral Flip Flops

Finally the temperatures are rising to the point where after a round of golf I have no desire to replace my golf shoes with shoes and socks. Flip flop season is upon us, with the occasional northern Utah decoy spring snow storm. I’ve been happily wearing my Green Coral flip flops by aahSoles, shown below.

Funny name, yes. Funny look, yes. Fun marketing for sure and that’s all I thought aahSoles was about until I wore them. The footbed of these flip flops is tremendous. The material pattern/texture gives my feet an amazing massage with every footstep. I’m trying to figure out how to wear these to work.


The texture, along with perfectly designed straps, making the act of walking easier than any flip flop or sandal I’ve ever worn. No slippage and no irritation of the toes.

Conclusion

I had some Vans flip flops which were my gamers, but now they’re in the backup bag.  The gamers are now ahhSoles.  Sounds dorky, but I can’t wait to wear them again.  This could be the best $30 investment ever.

Father’s Day is coming up. These would make a great golf or non-golf related Father’s Day gift idea and very reasonably priced too.

 

 


First Look: Bushnell Golf Pro X2 Laser Rangefinder

The battery to my (now former) laser rangefinder died last week on the first fairway.  I was quite surprised how accurate I was during that round with guessing yardages.  Thankfully I don’t have to go to the store and find one of those weird CR2 batteries or whatever they are. I’ll be replacing that dead battery and laser with a whole new laser I’ll be testing, the Bushnell Golf Pro X2 Laser Rangefinder.

Bushnell Pro X2 Laser Rangefinder Features

  • Pinseeker technology. If you haven’t used a Pinseeker unit, they’re awesome.  The laser easily locks onto the flagstick, even with shaky hands
  • “Jolt” technology vibrates the unit when the the laser locks onto the pin to confirm the right yardage
  • Accurate to 1/2 yard (more accurate than a GPS)
  • Can give ranges to the flag up to 450 yards for you big hitters
  • Slope technology with a switch to turn it off and be USGA legal for tournaments
  • Dual display: bright red or black
  • Waterproof
  • 6x magnification
  • SMALL! Much smaller than older lasers!

Father’s Day Golf Gift Alert!

My review is pending my testing. I’m compelled to point out that Father’s Day is coming up and the arrival of the new Pro X2 is perfect timing.  Based on my previous reviews of Bushnell Golf’s products I’d be willing to place a bet that dad will think you’re the most awesome person ever if you pick him up a Pro X2.  I’m confident I’ll be backing up those statements in my full review around the 1st of June.

Stay tuned.
