Yup got one ordered, Ping G410 Plus
It was kinda tedious but fun, he set me up with the SFT first and we tried every shaft (R,Sr,aftermarket) and setting but nothing would be any better than current G driver.
Switched to the G410 Plus 12’ and everything seemed to settle in. Again went with every shaft combo and the winner was the stock Alta Sr shaft. I was one tired ole fart but the Plus was 6-8 yards past my G driver, Ball speed 100, launch 14’-16’.
Now the 1 week wait.

Mine is a 12 turned down to 11.5 with an Alta Distansa weak R in it. One of our pros hit it today on the range and loved it - he’s got anX flex shaft in his driver - it took him exactly one practice swing to make the adjustment.

Alta Distansa R was next best shaft.
Funny thing is I couldn’t really “feel” a difference between the G and G410 Plus. The 6-8 yards is enough difference.

Cool - glad the 410 worked for you. Now let's see - $500.+ divided by 8 yards = ......... Never mind you can't rationalized toys. 😂

4 yards is the point where I start thinking about it - at 8 it’s a no brainer.

I was looking for my radar device today and came across the test data for my G400 tuning - I’m 24 yards longer than I was then - SuperSpeed and new equipment including the G410 plus.

What percent do you think was the new club vs the SuperSpeed.  Please say SuperSpeed as it’s cheaper than upgrading my G400

It’s all the club. :)

Totally kidding - it’s nearly all SuperSpeed - obviously a change in swing speed meant a need for some equipment adjustments - I really picked up very little yardage from the 400 LST to the 410 - what I gained was accuracy and consistency - the 410 is as close to point and shoot as a driver can be.

Made the choice go with the G410+ over a G400 for many reasons, even though I could have saved a lot of money either buying new or looking on the used market at a G400 (shhh, don't tell my wife.)

My particular reasons were: availability of a 12º club, ability to adapt the club to any changes in my game as I continue on my old man geezer duffer life, love of the Alta 55 CB shaft which is not available even as an up grade for the G400, and, after 2 fittings by two different fitters, this was the club that seemed best.

Finally, I fell in love with the G410+ the first time I took a swing and added about 35 yards to my usual swing. It came down, really, to what I was comfortable with helping my game.  I average, now, a gain of 1-2 shots from off the tee results!

As to the price, I took 8 months to save up for the club with my wife's knowledge and blessing. So no real problem in the household!  😁

      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!

      ===========================================================================================
      YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE....

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

      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.
