  1. Played my first semi-competitive round this past Saturday, a four-man charity scramble. Just took down some notes on using the JPX 921's: 4 Iron- Hit once on a tee shot into a shorter hole. Not well struck probably carried 180. 5 Iron- Don't believe I pulled it from the bag. 6 Iron- Hit once, second shot into a par 5 from 179. Bunker. 0/1 GIR 7 Iron- Hit twice, GIR on 170 par 3 and Bunker from 180 downhill second shot on par 5. 1/2 GIR 8 Iron- Hit once, Ball above my feet, trying to hit a draw... chunked fat. Poor shot. 0/1 GIR 9 Iron- Hit Three times, Twice on par 4s both GIR, Once on a par 3 to a bunker. 2/3 GIR PW- Hit once, Par 3 with a GIR. 1/1 GIR. 52-60 (Not JPX 921 clubs)- 8/10 GIR. Mostly shots from 80-100 yards but these should hit the green most of the time. Round Thoughts: This seems to be an improvement in my GIR from the MP-15s. 4/8 GIR using the JPX 921s. Most of my misses were pin high. Couple of shots were offline but not nearly by as much as before. I'm pumped to use them more this summer and have a good year with them.
  2. I had the same thing happen to me on a G400 I owned for about 9 months. Crack was in a different location that made the club totally unplayable. Ping did fully replace it but they didn't have any 400's so I got a 410plus that I honestly didn't prefer and traded for a 410LST a few months ago. The club material is very thin but usually Ping tries to make it right. Sorry for the issues you've had.
  3. Took the irons to the course for their first round last Thursday, to say I was pleased would be an understatement. Straight penetrating ball fight and much improved iron accuracy was so exciting to see. Driver let me down for sure or the round would have been solid. I did have a few shots that seemed to have less spin when landing on the greens that previous irons but that could be the ball I was using (Mizuno RB-Tour) as I wasn't playing the Srixon XV or ProV1 I did last season. Going to try and get out tomorrow for more work with them.
  4. I recently got fitted for a new set of Mizuno JPX-921 Tours and thought I'd share the experience, track improvement and give others a review of the irons. December 4th, I was fitted at Fairways and Greens in Knoxville, TN (https://fairwaysandgreens.com) by David Sumilus. They were my closest custom Mizuno fitter and I've always played Mizuno irons going all the way back to some MP-11s I played in high school. This was the first time I've ever been fitted for brand new clubs and if you can afford it I strongly recommend it. For me personally, I have the feeling that my golf game has leveled off to a point with my old equipment and if I wanted to get better I needed to get fit for some of the latest technology. My previous iron set included 4-PW of Mizuno MP-15s with DG S300 shafts. The fitting experience as a whole I strongly recommend, I got to try out the whole new Mizuno line and at least half a dozen or more shafts. In the end the set up that worked best for my game was the Mizuno JPX-921 Tours, upright +1, with Modus 105 X flex shafts. I will say when on the range, the moment we switched to the Modus 105 X shaft I hit about 8 balls in a row straight at the target with a penetrating ball flight. I couldn't have been more pumped to get them ordered after that. Fast forward 6 weeks to January 17th. (Yes, that's how long US custom orders are taking now 6 weeks instead of the usual 4 weeks, thanks COVID...) Everyone in the Facebook Mizuno Golf group knows this day as "Blue Box Day" and it didn't disappoint. The first thing I wanted to do was test them out but with wacky Tennessee weather it has actually been difficult to get out. Luckily for myself, I purchased a Skytrak last year and have an entire "garage golf" set up for practice. At least 3-5 times a week I spend an hour or so working with them and hitting shots. So after working with the clubs about a month and half I have made several observations. Shorter irons (PW-8I) carry distances have remained mostly the same, while Mid Range to Long irons (7i-4i) have increased in distance slightly (5-10 yards). Shot dispersion and shot shape have tightened and become more far more consistent. Mishit shots seem to have slightly more forgiveness than the MP-15 irons. This is a sample of a 5 iron with the JPX-921 tours. MP-15's carry was almost always 185 maybe topping out at 190. So far I'm beyond impressed with the Mizuno JPX-921 Tours. They seem to hit the ball straighter, with more consistent ball flight, and better carry distances gapping with the longer irons. I know some of the accuracy gains are probably not just from the new club face but having the correct length and lie for my swing. I'm super excited to start the 2021 Golf Season and once the weather improves I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on my continued progress with them.
  5. I agree. Slight arc to your stroke would seem to lean toward a slight toe hang. 28 plus with a Betti you know the face is gonna feel pure.

  9. Ha Ha. I'd love to think I actually did something to crack it but its honestly probably a minor defect in the crown. You can see from the pic that crown is paper thin. I really miss that G400 LST, They sent a G410 Plus as a replacement but to be honest after using it for a little over a year I'd rather have the 400 back. I'll probably talk to the Golf Pro that fit me and see if he has any left over head or perhaps hunt on the eBay. I loved the shaft but the head just doesn't feel that same.
  10. Just an update on the Driver. I've had the G410 plus for almost a year now. Pretty sure I'm going to be trying to swap it out for a G410 LST.
  11. When I cracked it I was using Srixion XV or Pro V1. Swing Speed with Driver is about 110-115 mph. X Stiff shafts tyipcally. Sorry for the long span between replies.
  12. Daniel Crossville, TN Yes, I use one at least 5x a week practicing in my garage. Yes, I have a Skytrak LM.

  14. I thought the same thing at first. I believe it is 5 cc bigger and while that might seem strange to be able to tell, I did feel like there was a difference. After 6 months with the G410 LST I actually prefer it to the G400 LST. I'd say at this point the cons are non existent and the pros are slight, which you can expect from a generation newer driver.
  15. I should probably circle back and say PING took great care of the situation. Brand new G410LST. I will have to say first two weeks with the new driver, I missed the G400 badly but now after a few months (hitting it almost every day on my skytrak in the garage), I'm super happy with the G410LST. I can't honestly tell much difference forgiveness or distance but it does have quite a bit of ability to tweek the weights and lofts over the G400. Excellent club, excellent company, I couldn't be happier.
  16. Crossville, TN and 36 112-115 MPH Above Average Absolutely, will see it through. Been wanting to make a DIY swing speed sticks and this would give me opportunity to try the real thing! Been missing my workouts in the gym too with this dumb COVID stuff so I'm dying to workout and get better at golf!
  17. I nearly broke into tears Monday when after three swings on the driving range (the last sounding a little funny) and on the third hole I pulled the headcover off my G400 LST to see this on the top of the crown. Good news: PING already has me a replacement on the way but they are OUT of G400 LST so they are sending me a G410 LST. Which is pretty awesome but I'm curious if anyone who played the 400 and switched to the 410 what changes they might have seen or felt. Just curious what some of you spies might have noticed between the two models. Also, you might be able to see from the picture but that top crown is insanely thin. They say it's the width of two pieces of paper. Pretty impressive engineering to move the weight around like that in the head.
  18. @ballplayer002003 I just bought the same putter on eBay. Do you still love it after 6 months? I used to game a Mizuno Bettinardi BC5 and loved the feel at impact.
  19. Congrats to @blackngold_blood and a huge thank you to the Commissioners @Berg Ryman @GolfSpy STUDque It was an awesome and fun season! Thank y'all for the hard work!
  20. Lets see... New bag -1 New putter -1 New ball -1 Total 17...
  21. I read he was sick and withdrew on Sunday. Awful way to end, cause I think even if you take his points up to Sunday, you'd advanced. I think the zero points with a WD is dumb to be honest but pretty sure this thread had discussed that topic at length already.
