That is why those settings are for fitters and not for us to change.


Alright so I’m a moron but at least I’ve graduated to changing settings rather than buying clubs. Much cheaper that way. :)

Nah, just what we do. I like to tweak things as well even though it may not be the best approach from a performance perspective.

I did a fitting once and the fitter wouldn't even give me the tool to loosen the head in order to change the settings... 

Me: "what about the tool?"
Him: "you don't need that, leave it where it is and if you want to change something come back and we'll get you on a monitor and make the change."
Me: ""

Smart man

That's funny - I'll have to tell that one to my fitter!

Had the driver set properly while on the range today. This was actually the first time that my teacher has seen me hit my G410 - he loved the ball flight - I hammered the two that he saw - 237 and 239 onVoice Caddy but longer than that in reality - they both fire past a flag that was 228 away. We had a 5 mph breeze at our back.

What a great combination: your 410 plus all the work you did with your SuperSpeed project.

Put on a show with the G410 Plus yesterday in a scramble. We shot -15 and I was putting us in prime scoring position all day. I hit a baby fade into the wind that still finished at 298 yards. So good

I've been driving the ball great this year, but these reviews have me tempted to replace my Epic Sub Zero

Just got a used (barely) G410+ after testing for a few successful rounds and noticed that when I took the head off to adjust the loft that the hosel part is slightly “bent” ... is that normal for the “flat” and lofts? It looks so weird ha.

My Callaway Razr-Fit now sits alongside my Callaway WB 3w and PE2 irons... it hasn't seen action since the side by side launch monitor session I reported on on my stage 2 this past May.  The G410P continues to impress and has, utterly amazing to me, turned this historically soft fader into a predominantly straight (even baby draw) hitter off the tee.  This did take several setting adjustments but the technology works as advertised!! 
I would say my only minor gripe with the club is that removing tee marks from the sole takes a bit of doing. I usually clean with water and a medium bristle nylon brush.  Some of these require a soft scrub pad to remove.  I do use nylon tees (not wood) and perhaps that isn't helping? I have been studying the mark pattern to see if it is trying to tell me something .

Magic Erasers work great for those. The marks bother me too haha.

My SFT is just getting better and better. I'm loving every aspect of this club from the sound to the narrow dispersion and now the distance (which I was complaining about previously). The distance issue of course, was the result of the "Indian" and not the "arrow".

I still haven't adjusted the hosel since my fitting - afraid to change a great thing!

Wish I could say the same thing...been a rather arduous journey for me since the reviews. Shaft changes and constant tinkering with the hosel adjustments. Simply put, I haven't found equilibrium or my "happy place" with this driver and it's been rather frustrating...so much so that I've taken a break recently (including here) to maybe flush some demons.

My experiences with it are basically as follows:

  • Hammer the snot out of a bucket on the range with nice, long and mostly straight hits
  • Embarrass myself on the course with constant distance-killing slices and shorter duffs
  • Go home pissed

I'm still in a bad position where I can't afford lessons, so most likely I'm piling on bad habits onto an already flawed and crummy swing. I am also wondering about my ball choice and am contemplating trying something different (note that I recently tried a sleeve of Srixon Q or Z-Star that I hated-covers just got chewed up bad after just one round).

Headed to the range here shortly before it gets too hot to hit a few and see if this recent break has done anything positive.

Not taking anything away from the 410 it is a great club, but do yourself a favor and hit the flash too.

Hang in there, we all go thru those stretches of bad, frustrating golf. Hope it passes soon.

I can relate - that was happening to me early on. Finally figured out that it was a combination of grip and spine angle. On the course especially in league I tended to stand tall. Played again today (in the rain no less) and I was just smacking that ball down the fairway. Nothing better than hearing that sound when you hit it well.

So I indeed went out to hit a bucket, but then decided to play a round despite the heat. I put my longer Aldila Tour blue shaft back in (I had been using a short Tensei Blue that wasn't making any distance) and was having the same old swiping issues with super-slice-a-ronis as usual. Fiddled with loft and landed at 11.5* and with a little choke-down action, I began to see better performance out on the course. Many straight shots and even some that went left to places I've never played before since I'm almost always right on every hole. Distance was OK, but I still had 2 moon shots that were way short after hitting under the ball. Choke-down seems to be key for me at this point.

Sounds like you're getting closer to optimum performance. I played 18 today and except for 1 drive I was a very happy camper. The big change for me from earlier this year is when I do have a bad drive I can immediately attribute it one of two elements in my stance or swing.

      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!

      ===========================================================================================

      Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? 
      Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS.   Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person.
      So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of them were already involved in a testing or had just completed one.  
      Then one name really jumped out at us,  Shankster.   Not just because he fit the handicap requirement, but if there is any one person on this site who is a more of a traditionalist and prefers the minimalist design in a club than Alan, we don't know who it is.  
      When we reached out to Shankster, it took him about 1 minute to say yes, and that's only because he was recovering from the shock of being asked and making sure he wasn't being punked!     We had to work through the timing of his move from Michigan to Maryland, but all that got sorted out.
      Not knowing exactly when today he'll get his post up, I'll leave you with a few of these.
