I was talking to a buddy yesterday about drivers. He suggested with some certainty that my driver face will go dead after about two years or so. Huh? He couldn't backup his claim. I haven't researched it either. Does anyone believe this? Is there any proof either way that this happens? Or...is this just a golf myth?

I have got fitted for a Ping Max Driver 2021 , same shaft as I thought was the best shaft for me, but since my 4 year old Ping apeared to ave a slight crack in the face, we decided ai should upgrade.   It all worked well in the fitting station and it was flying well , but that was the head we used for fitting.  Then I take the same set up new  and it flys 20 yards less that the one I had used for the fitting ad it sounds dead.  In fact I still it the one with the slighly craked face much better with same shaft ?  Very confused .

I had my buddies was me make twenty swings and the new one had no pop to it.  Tried it several more times same result.  I like the clud and the shaft but somethiung is different ?  I think the head of have is faulty.  Is this possible ?

I would go back to the fitter with the new club and compare it against the one you tested. If you purchased the club from the fitter he should swap the club head out for you if it is faulty.

What are you measuring with on the course to determine how far it’s flying and to compare to what the distance was in the fitting? 
 

Are you comparing carry distance or total distance?

Could be a bad head; manufacturing processes aren’t perfect and have tolerances.  Go back to the fitter with both drivers and compare them side by side and explain what you are seeing on the course.
