    [*]If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing / review thread? We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft. NOTE: You are responsible for supplying the driver head. - Absolutely

  • Desired shafts. Info needed:
    • Weight - MAD 65
    • Flex - Stiff Flex
    • Adapter - Cobra
    • Grip - Gray Cobra Connect Grip + 4 wraps, if possible, Golf Pride Tour Velvet Standard if not, + 4 wraps
    • Total Driver Length: 45"

    [*]Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts - I would test the shaft up against my current shaft via multiple range sessions as well as taking them out onto the course. Also, if a Cobra Connect grip is able to be provided, I will for sure utilize Arccos in my review. If a Cobra Connect Grip is not able to be provided, I will try to attain another Cobra Connect grip prior to receiving the shaft as I feel this additional level of information will be valuable to the review as it will give further insight to on course testing.

Edit: added shafts specs to my current bag

I certainly get some real world testing in mainly on course. Play my regular tracks and see how the real world results compare to my current set up.

 

I also have access to an indoor simulator which tracks numbers and could do a side by side comparison to shafts in the fold.
