  1. So I ended up pulling the trigger. I did a little more digging into the company behind cobalt, LaserTech or LTI. According to their website, they partnered with Bushnell in the early 90s and they design and manufacture the lasers used in all Bushnell products. So I'm confident it will be a top tier accurate rangefinder, and it claims longer more accurate yardages and slope readings than the Bushnell Pro XE that is a good bit more expensive. Add in the lifetime warranty and I was sold.
  2. Any updates on your experiences with it? How does it compare to range finders you've used in the past? I have it added to my cart and I am really tempted to pull the trigger but I keep hesitating and want to hear some real world experiences with it.
  3. I'm also very intrigued by this rangefinder but haven't been able to find too much more information about it other than the link you posted. I am disappointed it doesn't have a magnet like some of the other big brands are putting in theirs but if the Laser Tech is as good as they claim then I don't see why this wouldn't be the best range finder out there.
  4. Just a heads up, but Precision Pro should be releasing a new rangefinder any day now. In this forum, a Precision Pro rep indicated that their new smart rangefinder would be released in late April. I assume they're a little behind but that it will still be coming soon although I haven't heard anything else about it. I wonder if @Precision Pro Golf could chime in here?
  5. I am in! Currently game the Speedzone Big Tour and would love to throw this in the bag!
  6. UPDATE: The clubs finally arrived. I debated cancelling there for a while but with the delay everyone has been saying Ping is experiencing I didn't want to go back to square one. And to all who let me know how much I overpaid, I knew that I would be overpaying going in. This was my first ever set of clubs that aren't hand me downs and I was ok paying a little extra to get fit for stuff that would be perfect for me. I cut some costs by not getting any of my iron shafts pured. I definitely overpaid for my driver and 3 wood and that didn't help keep costs down but I'm happy with what I have. In the future I will definitely go with a local PGA pro over club champion. Definitely don't want to repeat the poor customer service experience. At the end of the day the fitters I worked with on site were great. The guys who work at my local location are awesome. But after my experience with their customer support team at their headquarters, it has turned me off of ever using them again in the future.
  7. Nice. Yeah I wish I had the foresight to do that at the time. The only club I bought separately was my driver head because I had store credit somewhere else, and that way I could keep the stock shaft as a backup, but I still bought another driver shaft through CC.
  8. Same thing happened to me. Was fit into a Tsi3 in December and got refit in February and was fit into the Cobra Radspeed and was not only seeing greater distance numbers (clubhead speed slightly faster but ball speed significantly faster) but much tighter dispersion as well. Sim2 was a close second to the Radspeed. I've been loving it so far.
  9. I mean, I don't even necessarily blame them for trying to do damage control if they think they're being perceived negatively. What frustrates me the most is that they still don't give me straight answers. Someone finally told me today that they're at the build shop, but I still haven't gotten one of the automated confirmation emails that they've arrived at the build shop that I got with my driver and 3 wood, so I don't really believe it yet. Hopefully I'm wrong and they ship them out to me ASAP but I've lost a lot of faith in them.
  10. Oh man I really hope that's in jest and that your webmaster isn't in any actual trouble. I legitimately don't remember how I stumbled upon this page. Can't wait for more details to come!
  11. I appreciate your response on these forums. However, that quoted communication from Adam ignores the fact that he told me on the 3/9 that he set an alert for the morning of the 11th was going to follow up with me on that day, and has since been ignoring further e-mails. And I would be a lot more understanding of you guys being at the mercy of the OEMs if you would have simply given me my order number and the means to contact Ping directly and cutout the middle man. At the end of the day, this would all be a lot less frustrating if I had a backup set of clubs to use in the meantime.
  12. At this point, as frustrating as the overly optimistic guesses have been, I don't think this is a Ping issue anymore, as Club champion confirmed with their Ping liaison that they had been shipped from Ping on their way to club champion and that was over 2 weeks ago. The customer service specialist told me on the 8th that they would be arriving on the 9th and that he would check in on Thursday the 11th to make sure the build process was on track and get back to me. I haven't heard from him since.
  13. I know. It's not even the delay, it's the continued bullshitting and false promises. Last I heard from them on Monday the customer experience specialist told me, "I set a google calendar notice for Thursday morning for me to check and make sure everything is still on track." So I e-mailed him yesterday and then again today to hear about whether they were in fact still on track and now he's just ignoring me completely.
  14. Guys, I feel like I'm going crazy here. I placed an order with club champion on December 19, 2020. ETA was February 3. That's kind of a long lead time but I figure, its still COVID, so its fine. I'm just excited for new clubs at this point. After the original ETA passed, I didn't hear from them. February 4 rolls around and I haven't heard so I call them. They say, "hey, not to worry it's on track to arrive here today and then just a day or two turn around and we'll get it sent to you." So I'm excited as hell. The excitement doesn't last long however, as not 10 minutes later I get an email from my fitter saying my clubs have been delayed another 2 weeks and the new ETA is February 18. Kind of frustrated by the lack of the communication coupled with the mix-up between different members of Club Champion. But hey, I have a golf trip planned for February 25 and they'll still be on time for that so I'm ok with it. 2 weeks roll by and I'm excited for my clubs. I have that golf trip coming up and I can't wait. But I still don't hear a peep from club champion. I call them yet again after the ETA comes and goes. They say they don't know where the clubs are and have no update for me. They blame it on the manufacturers delay due to COVID. That's fine if they want to pass the blame. But when I ask if I can get an order number so I can contact Ping directly and find out what the status is, club champion essentially tells me to kick rocks. This by far is the most infuriating part. After I spent upwards of $4,000 dollars on clubs it's ridiculous that they can't give me an order number to contact the manufacturer directly. Especially if they aren't taking responsibility for the delay and blaming it fully on the manufacturer. And this isn't a pending $4,000 while I wait for delivery mind you. Club Champion has had this money in their bank account for 3 months, and I have no recourse at all. Then, another delay. However, with this delay comes a friendly customer service agent who assures me they've confirmed from Ping that the clubs are on their way and they'll arrive at the build shop on March 3. He even goes as far as to say that they will expedite the process to get them to me ASAP. At this point, even after everything that has happened, I am elated at the prospect of having my clubs. March 5th rolls around. Nothing. March 8th rolls around. Nothing. They haven't even arrived at the build shop yet! But don't worry. They tell me they'll be in tomorrow for sure. March 9. Now its the 11th and I still haven't heard a word. Not only have my clubs taken forever, but Club Champion has consistently misled me, passed the blame over to Ping, and failed to provide me my clubs. COVID delays are one thing, but I'm sitting here 3 months later not only with no clubs, but having been lied to and misled countless times with not even a realistic ETA of when I can expect to have my clubs. I'm at my wits end and I am dying to play a round of golf and just sitting here waiting.
  15. Precision Pro is known for being the reliable brand that competes with the big names on a budget. I can't imagine this will be anywhere near the price range of the Bushnell Pro XE or the Garmin Approach Z82. If it is, I don't imagine they'll be selling many units.
  16. Precision Pro has this webpage up but it only comes up if you google search it, you can't get to it from any links on their page. No purchase, release or pricing info. Curious if anyone has seen or heard anything else about this. I am hoping it is priced comparably to the NX9.
  17. Wow I am envious. I ordered mine from Club Champion one week later on 12/19/20 and was quoted at about 6.5 weeks. Then the ETA for delivery rolled around and they said there has been a delay and Ping won't have new heads until the 18th so now I'm looking at a late February/Early March delivery which is about 10-11 weeks. I'm dying with anticipation and the worst part is that I have a golf trip planned on February 25th and it sounds like I won't have them in time.
