7 wood for me beyond a doubt. I’m so much better with it than the 4 hybrid that it replaced. Wow!

I couldn't agree more. When I got fitted earlier this year and he recommended the 7W over a 4H/4I i was a little skeptical. Best decision I've made this season.

I'm planning on playing Friday and Saturday this week, and I'm going to capture a bunch of data on my SC200 this weekend as well. I want to get solid averages for each club to really see how well they're gapped and to determine if any tweaks need to be made in the future.

You are losing yards with that driver, play the 7w from the tee!

It was a bit of a flyer lie, and did get a good bounce upon landing. That said, it's been a very solid club and put me in good shape to hit the green.

That was a bit of a dying quail duck hook, actually not bad considering how it looked when it first left the club.   he's the overall ranges of each club.   For the most part you can see the gap fitting has worked.   There are a couple odd ball hits with the 5 hybrid and 7 iron that skew it a bit.  But I'm starting to get more and more holes in where the numbers should start becoming the norm.

Here's the distance tab numbers, i guess these are known as the Smart Distance, the distance I should be able to count on when hitting the club.

My last 3 shots today - this was on the Par 3 course at our local muni - was aiming left center of the green (pin right behind a trap). Right to left wind (which hurts me).

 

 

185, 169, 161 respectively - 7 wood, 9 wood, 6 iron - the 9 wood is in the back fringe - the 7 wood and 6 iron are perfectly hole high by sight and gps. According to GPS shots were - 184, 172, 160.

 

That’s pretty nice gapping - all off the deck BTW. Played from each teeing area BTW - extremely tight lies

I got things back on track during yesterday's round, and hit a few shots that solidified the gapping at the top of my bag. 

G410 3W: #11 at Navy Marine Golf Course plays 305 yards from the blues. There's a large landing area that I typically aim for, and while I caught my tee shot closer to the heel side of center, I had 70 yards in. This highlights what I love most about this FW...it's stupid forgiving and you don't lose an awful lot of distance if you miss the center of the club face. 

G410 2H: #14 at NMGC plays 406 yards from the blues and is straight downwind. Since my tee shot didn't go as planned, I had 235 in out of a nice lie in the left rough. I ripped my 2H and hit a beautiful shot that unfortunately didn't hold the green, but my leave wasn't bad at all. Looks like playing my 2H at 18.5 was the right choice!

G410 Crossover: #9 at NMGC plays 474 from the blues typically into a 10 to 15 mph head wind. I had 205 left after my tee shot, and another good lie so it was 4 Xover time. I struck it well, but pulled it a bit and when I got to my ball is was a touch under pin high in an undesirable ball-below-my-feet lie. I won't bore you with how the rest of the hole went 😐

Overall these long game weapons continue to perform, and I'm most excited about my renewed confidence with my FW!

I just realized that without a hybrid I'm going to need to learn how to chip with one of these suckers - probably the 7 wood.  Why not it seems like it can doing everything else well. 🙂

Good thing you don't have Arccos.  You'd totally confused it with some 200 yard shots followed by a 10 yard chip.  Ha

Shot scope won't count it towards its playing average if you use it inside 50y. So no worries there.

And, you can edit it as a positional shot as well, if you need to.

Snuck out for a quick 9 today and didn’t shoot well at all. First two hybrid shots I hit I topped and the first 3 wood shot I chunked. Going to set up the skytrak and net outside tomorrow and see if I can get some data and distances.

Played today - can’t comment too much because it was for a Cobra Connect challenge but the 7 wood is the bomb.

Oh and the SCOR 52 doesn’t stink either.

Neither does the Ping G410 driver - put me right where I needed to be all day.

I'm getting angry that I haven't been able to get out much recently to hit these clubs! Been way more busy than I like. Went to play last weekend, but half the course was still underwater.

So, grabbed a range bucket and hit the G410s the whole time. I still can't get over how good the shots are with them. I never thought I'd say I trust myself with the longer clubs.

      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.

      PRESS RELEASE
      PING introduces next generation
      of custom-fit women’s equipment
       
      PHOENIX (July 1, 2019): Advancements in technology, lighter overall club weight, expanded fitting options and premium materials combine to make the new G Le2 family PING’s highest performing women’s clubs to date, the company announced today. The complete line of clubs is available for pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today.
       
      “The G Le2 represents our continued commitment to providing women golfers of every skill level with premium, high-performance equipment optimized to their swing speeds,” said Stacey Pauwels, PING Executive Vice President and the granddaughter of PING founders Karsten and Louise Solheim, whose role includes overseeing the brand’s women’s initiatives.”
       
      “To achieve one of our performance goals of improving the feel of the club throughout the entire swing, we focused on making the clubs lighter overall,” Pauwels added.  “We integrated our extensive knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes with our proven design technologies to deliver measurable improvements throughout the set. At the same time, we wanted to present the new clubs in a visually appealing and confidence-inspiring way. We’re extremely excited about the results and look forward to bringing the G Le2 family to women golfers around the world.”
       
      Custom fit and custom built
      Along with ensuring measurable performance improvements throughout the G Le2 family, PING’s engineering team placed added importance on expanding the fitting options to help women find the ideal set to match their games.
       
      “Having equipment that is custom fitted to their games allows women to see improvement from every club in their bag,” said Pauwels. “The G Le2 family really emphasizes that need through loft, lie and length adjustability along with the shaft weight, flex and grip offerings. Once we know those specifications, finding the best combination of fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges during a fitting is the next step in the process.”
       
      “Because we custom build every club, we want women to know we’ll make them a set that best fits their game,” she said. “The key is determining the ideal set makeup that provides proper distance gaps between each club. That may be a full set or maybe a smaller set of a few metal woods, hybrids, irons, a wedge and a putter. Once we have all their fitting information, we can custom build the clubs to their precise specifications for maximum performance.”
      Lighter, faster, more forgiving driver
       
      The next generation of golf’s highest-performing women’s driver maximizes forgiveness and distance through a higher MOI, faster face and lighter overall weight. Its titanium head features a rounder, more aerodynamic shape to promote faster clubhead speeds. A thin, forged T9S+ face is optimized for the intended swing speed to increase flexing for more ball velocity and improved launch conditions. Internal heel-biased weighting helps ensure straighter ball flights and softer turbulators help frame the ball at address. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 in the G Le2 driver utilizes a new lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions for influencing ball flight through loft (±1.5°) adjustments.
       
      Faster faces, higher-launching, adjustable fairway woods
       
      A thinner, faster maraging steel C300 face, a significantly higher MOI and an 8-lobe adjustable hosel distinguish the G Le2 fairway wood from its predecessor. The added ball speed from the face technology increases distance and combines with the shallower face to launch the ball higher with greater forgiveness. An overall lighter club weight makes swinging the club easier with more clubhead speed for longer and straighter results. Internal weighting promotes right-to-left shot correction to keep shots on target. Available in 3, 5, 7 and 9 woods.
       
      Lighter, longer and straighter irons
       
      Precise and forgiving with a lighter overall club weight, G Le2 irons utilize COR-Eye Technology with a deep top-rail undercut to increase face flexing for more ball speed and higher max height. A tungsten toe weight helps increase MOI by 10% for greater forgiveness and a co-molded cavity badge ensures a pleasing feel and sound. Available in 6-9 iron, PW, UW, SW.
       
      Faster face, higher-launching hybrids with more fitting choices
       
      A thinner, hotter Carpenter 455 face and lighter club weight generate faster ball speeds while a lower, deeper CG helps increase the MOI to launch the ball high with greater forgiveness. The addition of a 34⁰ 7 hybrid expands the fitting options for women who prefer the technology of a hybrid in place of an iron. Softer crown turbulators help capture the ball at address and aid in alignment. Available in 4, 5, 6 and 7 hybrids.
       
      Adjustable putters with feel and forgiveness
       
      Enhanced feel and forgiveness and a new adjustable-length shaft improve performance and fitting opportunities in the three new G Le2 putters (Anser, Shea and Echo). A dual-durometer face insert -- engineered with TR face technology -- provides a soft front layer for precision and improved impact feel and a firmer second layer for control to improve consistency on putts of every distance. The easy-to-use adjustable shaft allows self-fitting for length between 31" and 35". A new, softer PP59 midsize grip improves feel and comfort.
       
      Lighter shafts, softer grips
      PING’s proprietary ULT240 Lite and Ultra Lite premium graphite shafts are standard throughout the G Le2 family and help bring down overall club weight while helping generate more clubhead speed and higher launch. The super-soft Golf Pride Tour Velvet Garnet 360 grip is available in three sizes (Blue -1/16", Red -1/32", Aqua -1/64").
