Bubba gives an update about his G30

Recommended Posts

 

 

310 yards and 60% FIR, looks like the G30 is performing well for Bubba. I think it'll be a top performer in the Most Wanted Test as well.

I finally got my hands on a G30 LS Tech with a custom shaft the other day......it was DEEP. Of 10 balls hit, 3 were over 340 total distance. Was launching at 18° with only 1300rpm spin.

It's been on my list to try out, but haven't had a chance yet.  Is it going to knock the SLDR out of your bag?

Hit the LS TEC head today and it was awesome! Similar spin to my SLDR but with a bit better feel and forgiveness. Now operation beat the sldr has begun with this being at the top of the list. Just gotta figure out a shaft better than the stock

I got to hit the LS Tec head today too. My normal spin rate is somewhere around 3500rpm (yea I know thats crazy high and not good. 

 

Figured out I needed an X-stiff shaft (still think I'm going to end up finding something I like better outside the Ping shaft line that helps me more) and the combo of the 2 had my spin rate down around 2000 with quite a few lower than that. Went from hitting a fade that a very nice draw. I'm sold...

I kept telling myself that I wouldn't find a driver that, without lots of lessons, that would drastically improve my shot. I was wrong.................very very very wrong.......I picked up about 20 yards with just a few swings too...It was almost scary good for me....

I've got to ask an heretical question.

 

What if the stock shaft is the best choice?

I'm going to try it when the demo days come by hopefully in May like last year. I do not think anything that knock by TourEdge out but there's nothing wrong with trying ;)

The previous G series shafts have been made by UST/Mamiya in recent versions. Worse things could happen.

When I was fit for a G20, I went with the Tour version of the stock shaft. My numbers were perfect with it. The fitter offered to let me hit exotic shafts and I passed. There wasn't any improving the numbers.

 

I need to get well and get my G30 fitting scheduled! Have played a G series going back to the G2. They are usually great drivers. Some were better than others, but generally, never a "dud" of a performer.

 

I'd still like to know how much is "turbulators" and how much is the new face tech accounting for the gains. I have a theory that I'll try to follow up with Ping on after I have a chance to hit it. Not sure they'd answer it, but I hope so.

I didn't think the stock shaft that he put me in was bad. I just think I may be able to do a little better with a different shaft. Thats all. If I got the numbers I was looking for exactly with the stock shaft he put me in I wouldn't even think about a different shaft.

Make sure to specify swingweight when ordering. The stock shafts are counter-balanced and the heads are pretty heavy. Could be a very heavy setup if the head stayed at 206g with a tip-balanced shaft.
