  1. So, I bought a used set of Ping i500 irons and about the third time out the 5 iron head flew off as I hit the ball (not the ground). No problem, I thought, easy fix. Then I got home and was about to mix the epoxy when dry-fitting the ferrule, I was shocked to find that the inside diameter of the hosel was a whopping .400, obviously much larger than the .355 shaft tip. There was very little epoxy left in there so a whole chunk of it must have flown out as well. I contacted Ping to ask if they could repair (add) the hosel to properly fit the shaft but they said they can’t do that. I co

  3. Having worked at a golf course as a ranger, I can only cite my first-hand observations that motorized carts are a primary factor to a slow pace of play. First and foremost, two people going to one ball is illogical. Watching the number of times people go into their bags for clubs, balls, tees, and mystery items is astounding. Instead of hitting a shot and holding onto the club until reaching the next shot's location, riders unfailingly take time to return the club to the back of the cart, and then go to the front empty-handed. This happens with both players adding to the total time of the ente
  4. Been a Ping guy, not THE Ping guy ( he’s awfully small) since wooden “woods” and Eye2s. Been through many models and changes in irons and woods and have been “stuck” on my G30 driver as the newer models haven’t given me flight upgrades to warrant changing, but those days might be over with the 410 Plus from what I’ve read.

  8. I've tested (on my own) Vice, Bridgestone RBX, Laddie, Callaway Soft Chrome, and all have paled in comparison to my usual Pro V1s. All have been short on iron feel, overall distance, and control around and on the greens. Why not try Snell?

  9. Yesterday was my first practice experience with the Vice ball - Pro Soft. The matte finish was very disconcerting and even putting caused grass stains on the balls. I've never been bothered in the least with glare from balls or from my chrome forged irons, so I'm not inclined to appreciate the dull ball finish. Feel: Comparing the balls to my usual Pro V1, they felt as soft in short chips but seemed a little harsher on pitches. They did seem as soft or even softer off the putter face, as I saw a need to hit a bit harder on longer putts. I can't yet speak to distance from full shots yet but
