  2. I tried the Spider X at a demo day a few weeks ago and I can say the feel is noticeably different from the standard Spider. The rep said its significantly more face weighted making it super smooth for a straight back and through putting style. If it wasn't $350 I would have bought one already.

    Ping G410

    The driver at the expo had nothing in the other slots, they were exposed threads. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. I was able to hit the Plus and the SFT. I really liked the Plus. I was also able to hit the 3 hybrid, 3 wood, and 6 iron. The irons are a bit chunky, the 3 wood is very nice, while the hybrid is straight fire. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. I was able to take a few cuts with the Ping G410, now I cant wait for the official release and a fitting. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. The head shape of the G looked to be a little shorter front to back, more rounded at the top and towards the toe. Overall they both looked awesome. The black with the new wave sole is sweet. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Ping G410

    I was able to hit the G410 today at an Expo. The pro said he was surprised, he didn't expect to have it but his Rep dropped it off last night. He was given explicit instructions not to let anyone take photos. There was an SFT version and another that I hadn't seen from Ping before. It had a weight in the rear like the photo of the SFT but it had three different positions it could be in. It looks like it should be a slide track but it's not, its three distinct positions you can screw the weight into. The three positions arent in the sole or the crown, it's clearly in the rear pointing away from the face and had a draw, neutral, and fade setting. The crown had some additional fins on it like the sole, but maintained most of the look from the G400. They didn't have a launch monitor set up but the thing was smooth. It sounds better then any Ping driver I've hit before. I'd say ping has another winner on their hands. I might have to replace my Mizuno ST180 this spring. He also had the three wood, Hybrid, and irons. The three wood felt much improved over the G400, but still isn't any better then the competition. While the hybrid was absolutely money. It has the same smooth feeling the driver does. The irons were chunky and not much to write home about. Overall I think they are all solid offerings. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. I was able to hit the ST190 at the Des Moines expo, it is awesome! It felt better the the Cobra F9, Titleist TS2, and was comparable (in sound and feel - no launch monitor data was available) to the ping G410. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  10. My son is just over a year old. If you count running around after the him, telling him to swing the cut down 9 iron like I've showed him (he's going to hit everything in his path regardless, might as well make it constructive) then I play all the time! Besides that, my practice is almost non-existent and I might get one round in a week. My wife has been good about me trying to go once a week. However, with coaching high school football and mandatory overtime at work, I haven't tried to play recently. it's not fair to her or my son for me to gone that much. I'm hoping, in the near future, he wants to pick up the game and we can go out together. Until then, I'll keep chasing him around the house, telling him to swing like I showed him.

  15. - Chase - Iowa - I currently use my best guess on distance. I haven't been able to talk my self into spending the kind of cash previously required to get a good unit. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. Just remember, distance isn't everything. I drove the green on a 370 yard par 4 at my home course and managed a three putt par [emoji23] needless to say I'm not a scratch golfer. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  18. Spring Valley is a Beautiful course in central Iowa. The zip code will tell you it's in Livermore, Iowa which has a population of 359, but really it's out in the middle of a corn field. I high recommend hitting up this hidden gem if your traveling through central Iowa. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. I purchased the ST 180 a couple of weeks before the Most Wanted list came out. I've only been able to hit it indoors into a net but so far the feel is great and the sound isn't TO loud. It's less sharp then hitting a Ping G25 or G30 but louder then a Callaway Epic. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. I'm a little late to the game here but am I the only one that thinks Dom needs to worry more about his amateur status? The NCAA takes the amateur status very seriously and taking free equipment and asking for money on a gofundme could fit into the category of improper benefits. You have some great gear kid, just be careful as the NCAA isn't as forgiving as the spy's. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. I recently went to all midsize Mcc Plus 4 grips on driver through wedges. My putter is the only club without a larger grip. I guess I'm waiting to see if I can find a good oversized grip, maybe with a counterbalance, I like before switching over. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. Thank you everyone, I plan to replicate my set of clubs for my son. I have a Cobra King LTD Pro driver, Cobra Amp Cell 18 degree hybrid, Callaway Apex 24 degree utility iron, Callaway Apex MB 6 and 8 iron, Cleveland RTX 2.0 48 and 56 wedges and a Cleveland Huntington Beach #6 putter.

  23. I have two pair of Oakley prescription Holbrook glasses. I almost always wear when golfing or outside. The pair I wear golfing have already been run over by a cart and super glued back together so I don't worry about getting Hammed while out on the course and breaking or losing them. I like the Polarized Mirrored Holbrook because of the large lens, I don't feel like I'm looking through a keyhole when I wear them. And if you can stomach the price, prescription all they way, it makes a world of difference. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. Hello everyone, my name is Chase and I am from North Central, Iowa. I've been playing golf my entire life but just recently started really working on my game. I am an equipment nut, I love reading about, looking at, and testing the latest and greatest. I also enjoy hunting down and playing old, outdated, and vintage equipment. I recently retired my Ping 1a, relocating it to my basement bar as a work of art. More recently my son was born, he's a little over two weeks old. I decided when he was born we would golf together, so I started to whittle him a set of clubs out of wood. So far I'm nearing completion of his first driver. It was supposed to look like my Cobra King LTD Pro but it turned out looking more like a ping or a Nike. But that's alright, it's about the thought. Golf brings people together and I hope to spend years bonding with my son over this great game!
  25. This year I've played a number of different balls, I guess I would say I'm searching for the right blend of "eat, EAT, come on and stop already!" and "go dang it! I swear I hit it further than that". So far I've played the ProV1 and ProV1x, the Volvik S3 and Vivid, the Bridgestone B330-S and E6, and the Callaway Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft x. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the workability of Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft x balls. It's true they are softer then baby poop but the get decent distance and stop fairly well. If you just want to hit for distance and want it to go straight the Volvik brand balls are for you. The Vivid in particular has zero green side spin and sounds like you're hitting a rock, but man do they go straight. I'm not going to lie, I hate the Bridgestone balls. I don't know if it's the dimples or what, but I can't play these balls. Finally there's old reliable, the ProV1 balls. I think I was hitting balls from a couple years ago because I was extremely disappointed in their durability. seriously, my ProVs and x's wouldn't last a full day. But like always, they fly long and stop well. None of these balls are perfect, but until I find that "holy grail" ball that "eats" and "goes" I guess I'll have to keep looking. Maybe Ill try Snell or Vice or maybe even Cut golf balls. If anything they'll look cool in my bar. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
