Hello all,

So I recently purchased my first set of Cobra irons and selected the Cobra connect align grips as I have used Arccos sensors before. While I understood that there would be both extra length added to the club and there may be some movement of the end of the grip, what I have now is severe enough to stop me from playing with these grips. Is this normal for this type of grip?

Thanks in advance for anyone willing to share their experience.

Because of grips?  Good lord, get one (a grip)...

I don’t think it is limited to Cobra. I bought several Ping fairways that were the exact same way. Re-gripped and moved on without Arccos.

I believe the replacement of those with standard grips will result in a 1/4 inch shorter club.

I have mcc+4 with arccos and don’t have anywhere near that much play.  If installed correctly you will feel/notice very little distance over a non-arccos grip.

Also, factored in, I have no use for Arccos anyway so I was not at all bothered by the change out.

Ping made a big blunder making those standard instead of an option.  I won't buy Ping clubs.

Thanks for all the replies, the entire set has this issue, some worse some better, I will be contacting Cobra.

 

Looks like Amateur hour to me. Pretty pathetic. Sorry for your dilemma.

Ping also has standard tour velvet as a stock option.

Either they didn't push it in enough or they did not tap the bottom to release the air pressure inside the grip built up from the insertion. Remember the sensor blocks the hole inside the grip and if there is a paper or plastic covering over the sensor, it blocks it more. It could well be they push it in, thought they were done but didn't tap to release the air pressure inside, left it and then it pushed out somewhat... my last set of Cobra irons were fine with the Arccos, someone there did it right.

 

Either way, go pull the grip and re-grip.

It happens all the time.  Best thing to do would be to take to the local golf shop that has a club builder in the back and have him fix it.

Good point. Sounds like they pre-installed the Arccos to save time in the line.
