  1. I was fitted for the Ping G400 driver after not hitting driver for several years. I was tired of leaving 10-20 yards out there by hitting 3-wood off the tee. I loved the G400 so much that I ended up getting fit the following year with the G410 3-wood and 5-wood. Love them both and hit the heck out of them. But I started getting very inconsistent with my driver last year. After reading a MGS study about the results of hitting a 43.75" driver compared to the standard 45.75" driver (https://mygolfspy.com/mgs-labs-is-longer-really-longer/) I bit the bullet and had my club fitter cut two inches off my G400. Three months later, the results: hitting it just as long if not longer as always and hitting 50% more fairways than I was before and my misses are not as dramatic. I'm more confident over the shorter club and am no longer afraid to pull out driver on a long par 4 even when there might be big trouble left or right. Not saying it's right for everyone, but since we're on the subject of club fitting, I might suggest anyone who has a problem controlling a standard length driver may want to experiment with a shorter shaft.
  2. Would love to test this. Currently using an Odyssey two-ball (I have an old-school, center shafted one, as well as an O-works model, along with a blade version that I benched long ago).
