Yes sir, those are next on my list. I've hit the D300 driver, ok results. Hard to find a Srixon dealer around these parts.

Did you try the f5? Had pretty good results, but the stock shaft wasn't for me, I think...

So, I picked up my Ping G400 LS driver on Saturday about a month after I ordered it. I had heard the LS heads were backordered for some reason and that some were being recalled. I hit it on the range Monday and Tuesday with no issues. Today, I took it back to the range, and after a few swings the glued in tungsten tab fell out and was nowhere to be found. I'm starting to understand why there was a recall and it took so long for the heads to ship. Ping has an issue here.

Not good to have issues on a brand-new driver that everyone's raving about. I'll have to keep it in mind if I decide to buy one.

I'm starting to understand why there was a recall and it took so long for the heads to ship. Ping has an issue here.

So, just to update everyone on the problem I had above, my fitter sent the head back in for repair and it came back a couple of weeks later with a new tungsten tab installed. So far I've hit a ton of balls with it and I've had no issues. I ordered it with the Tour 65 shaft but didn't like the dispersion I was seeing. My fitter let me try it with a Speeder VC 7.2 TS he had in the fitting room and it was night and day. With the Speeder shaft I'm hiting long straight bombs that carry forever. He traded me the shaft for free to help with my troubles. If anyone lives in the Charleston, SC area I highly recommend you go to David Ayres Lowcountry Custom Golf to get fitted for any clubs or get any club work done. They are the most knowledgeable people in the area and really care about helping you out.

Went in for a club fitting and tried the G400, EPIC SZ, M1 and M2. G400 for me was clear winner. Went back to fine tune my G400 specs, left with an LST 8.5 (set to 7.5) with the HZRDUS Yellow stiff shaft at + 1/2".

I tried out the G400 at my local golf store. I was hitting it about 249m (275-280yd) with 235m (260yd) carry, ~2400rpm. I really want one of these drivers. They look and feel fantastic!!

I finally got the G400 9 Deg after much waiting.

Really wanted the Tour Stiff shaft but surprisingly the CB Alta Tour Stiff(Japan spec) was much tighter in dispersion than any other shafts.

Will test with an old Diamana X and maybe a Fubuki to see if anyone can kick the stock shaft out.

 

Overall, it's way more forgiving than my JGR or old BioCell.

The new G400 drivers are the real deal.  There is a difference between the G and the G400.  First off, the stock shaft looks amazing.  You will also notice the head size isn't the full 460cc head, however the forgiveness is the same, or better, than a 460cc head.  I noticed that I seemed to pick a few extra miles per hour club head speed because of the size of the head.  

 

I don't have a lot of experience with the fairway woods and hybrids.  I did own the prior generation of the crossover.  The crossover was amazing when you were on, but if you weren't it was really bad.  There never seemed to be an in between with that club.  I ended up trading it in for a hybrid for some consistency.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Anyone else excited about the new G lineup of Drivers, fairways, hybrids and that "crossover"? I'm looking forward to seeing some specs. From what I've been reading the drivers shouldn't be as noisy... I am in the market for a new Ugly Stick. I like the matte finish on the Ping.

 

What's everyone's thoughts?
