Well guys I’ve been following this Test closely and ALL Reviews are well done, great job guys.
I and now pretty certain in a few weeks when I can swing a Driver again the first I try will be the Ping G410.
I’ve already told the fitter to have a LH G410 Driver warmed up and ready!
Great job guys!

There’s two things to remember;

2nd; I forgot, what was the 1st?

It's been a rainy day here in Georgia so I had plenty of time to check out your reviews.  First of all no doubt you all did your homework and came to class with all sorts of interesting findings with the Ping G410 woods. Each one of you shared your results with an individual and no holds barred style.   Loved it!   I still have my Ping G400 Max in the wings while I''m bagging my main squeeze (Cally XR16). Although two of the big driver reviews I was interested in were enlightening, I'll stay the course. Thanks guys for your dedication to quality and all of us at MGS are extremely proud of your efforts!

Soo umm - that fitting today just verified everything I thought I was seeing on the course with the G410 Plus.  Small Minus hosel setting, weight in the toe.

Those are sick numbers - that work on your swing is really taking shape. Great job!

Question for the testers - I see some mention of changing lofts in your reviews can you guy guys comment on extremes in adjustments?

I may just go back to where I bought the thing, lay out a few bucks and dial it in.

If you have the means and the time, that would be the way to go for sure. The adjustments are pretty basic and intuitive. In a couple of my initial range sessions I basically went through this progression each time; Started with neutral (10.5*) and hit 5-6 shots. Changed to -1* hit 5, then to -1.5* and hit 5. Then back to neutral for a couple of shots and then tried +1* and +1.5* similarly. When I first changed to -1* it felt very good and I hit those shots the best, so I simply dialed into that and it seems to be the one for me. I tried the -1* & +1* with the lie-angle setting with mixed results, so I have simply left it with the standard lie-angle and effectively at 9.5* loft. Of course all this was done out on a driving range with no type of LM at the time-all feel and real-world visual results albeit with range rocks...

FYI, you can really tell just by how much of the face is showing at address how much those little adjustments make to the look of the club when looking down at it as it lies flat on the ground.

Thanks apologist -

My Ping fitter did me a solid by even touching driver and irons. But he didn’t spend lots of time on driver beyond you need this lighter shaft and higher loft.

So this afternoon I went to the range after an unimaginable day (funeral and last rites for 2 people). Warmed up, was hitting it well, moved into driver.

At 12 degrees I was hitting it in the low 230’s according to voice caddy SS 94-96.

That’s solid enough for me with range balls as I’m 5-10 mph faster on the course with my gamer than on the range.

So I jacked it down a degree. Now I play my 400 LST as a 10 up one so this means both were at 11.

But I was hitting the G410 with the new shaft down 1 235-240 plus - I had one carry over 230 and roll out right around a flag that I measure at 265

And our rainy season has started

Sheesh.....you’re killin’ it.
I changed the setting on my G to 11 and has made a 20 yd difference. Had it previously 9.5 and that’s bad for my “moderate” swing speed.

Great update Rev. I'm glad you were able to slip away after what sounds like a terrible day and maybe relax a bit. I'd say you have that thing pretty well dialed in and maybe seeing similar results with distance improvements over the G400 series like I did-nice to have some validation..!

I'm hoping to get to the range myself this week and continue to work on grooving my swing. It fell out of the groove Sunday and I need to try to generate some muscle-memory especially on my transition.

Keep bombing them out there! 230 carry with 265 roll is awesome!

Got out for 9 holes today and had my second go round with the g410. Today went much better than the first round. Took the HZRDUS Yellow from my g400 and swapped tips and plugged it in to the g410. Night and day difference. Still love the feel of the HZRDUS Yellow. Had one of my best driving days ever en route to a 40 on 9 holes Darn 3 putt on the last hole hurt me. 

Still getting used to the sound compared to the G400, but love the results I saw today.

I find the 400 much more subdued. The 410 let’s you know it’s around. It bothered me the first swing - until my fitter told me what my numbers were - I got used to it quickly after that. :)

Sort of haha. Loved my g400 and found the 410 for a good price. Already had it prior to the fitting. Talked with the fitter and he recommenced any of the shafts I already had (tour 75s, HZRDUS Yellow 76 or Evenflow Black 76. Tour 75 won out for my fairway and hybrid but HZRDUS Yellow won out in my driver.

      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
      Handicap
      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!
