Well as some of my continental colleagues have pit their hands up I'll do the same.

Current hybrid/ iron: RBZ tour 21.5 into ping g30 4 iron


I've got a crossover on order, but being in the UK no doubt it'll be a long wait so would be great to try one for MGS. Season starts next week for me and I'm having some real issues with my hybrid currently.

Home State : Ontario ( almost a state we can hit a driver into Niagara Falls New York) I qualify because I have a signed letter from Rod Serling for a script I submitted to the Outer Limits.

Also I had a conversation on the phone with Karsten Solheim when I was the Pro Shop Chairman of my club and we couldn't get the New (then)Ping Eye 2s in our Pro Shop. We had them within two weeks after I talked to him.

Handicap 12

Currently have a Ping G30 5 hybrid in my bag as well as a Callaway Razer X 4 hybrid( I say currently in my bag because I have Taylormade Stage 2 Hybrids, Nike Sasquatch Hybrids amongst others

Irons: Titleist 710 AP1 graphites R, or Taylormade CGB Maxs Graphite R or Taylormade Speedblades with Aerotech i95 shafts R or a set of Mizunos unique because 4 sets were brought into Toronto by George Knudson a Family Friend.

Driver(s): Titleist 913 Bassara,Titleist 915 D2 stock senior,Ping G30 SFTec Soft R, Taylormade SLDRs 14 M flex, Taylormade Aeroburner 10.5 Reg

Putters: 9 Scotties and too many others to list.

Wedges: like the putters

As you can see I am a qualified club tester/ complete equipment nut!!!!

PS I haven't listed the classic stuff hanging on my walls downstairs surrounded by one of kind photos of many pros (Nicklaus, Faldo, Trevino, Moe Norman,David Graham, Greg Norman, Curtis Strange etc,- I'm a professional photographer -

Really excited for the crossover. I'm a good long iron player but for some reason have always carried a hybrid. However, I seem to have missed whatever people love in hybrids because I've never found one that works for me. I get very inconsistent results/ball flights. Excited for potential for something different.

Thanks for the opportunity,

Name:       Harry

State:        California

Handicap: 14

Current Clubs:   I have Ping G hybrids: 17, 20 & 23 - graphite regular


I have been a Ping guy since the Zing. If I were to put a Ping Crossover in the bag, I anticipate the 4 would replace the 23 degree hybrid.

Would love to test. I'm a low ball hitter and use hybrids to help with launch angle. However, many current hybrids are designed to be "hot", which usually means lower trajectory and rollout. The crossovers are interesting because they are designed to launch higher, but still produce distance.

      Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
      3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 
      5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. 
      Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. 
      Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. 
      Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. 
      Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. 
      Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 
      Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
      Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!


      Please join me in congratulating these members selected from a very large and diverse applicant pool:
