I just got fit for the ping g410 driver after being absolutely set on buying the Epic Flash. I was amazed at how great it was. I'd love to be considered for this opportunity.

My gapping is a mess. The 3 wood is too close to my driver and the hybrid is an unreliable club for me.  The utility iron, while extremely consistent off the tee on short par 4s, flies too low to hold a green.  I think i would benefit greatly from a proper fitting.

      This is a process that started back in January at the PGA Show when I had a conversation with the people at PING about the testings for this year.   Both of us wanted to do something new and different, and after coming up with an idea and ironing the details, a testing unlike any we've done before was born.
      We talk often on this site saying "Go Get Fit"  and PING has a phrase you hear constantly among it's staff #FittingMatters   And one of the areas that we felt fitting was overlooked was in the long game, fairway woods and hybrids.  
      So I went out to PING HQ in Phoenix, and was fit by one of their master fitters.  PING then graciously arranged for the four testers who were selected, to be fit by either the area field rep for PING or in the case of two of them,  two top 100 PING Fitters.  

      So this review thread will be a bit different as it will have a third stage--the fitting process--which will be talked about at the same time as Stage 1 is posted.   As a staff tester, I will post one stage, that is hopefully not TLDR...but make no promise 🙂
      Each person was fit to what fit their personal gaps between driver and the last iron.   So each of us came up with a different combo to test.  I think you will find the results very interesting and in some cases eye opening.
      One final note.  Due to the horrific weather and deadly floods/tornado's that hit MO last month, TSauer's fitting was delayed quite a bit from the others.  Fortunately he and everyone involved are safe and sound, but it just took a while for them to all work through the timing.   So his stage's may be a bit behind the others, but he has an awesome setup to review, and I'm looking forward to reading all these, knowing how my setup has helped my game already.
