I'm afraid of changing out my 410 SFT driver. It's the straightest stick I've ever owned. I'm even afraid to change the loft settings on it. 😂 My current GHIN stats show I hit the fairway 73% of the time and generally it's right down the middle.

That's definitely a keeper, you would have to pry a driver that puts up those results out of my hands. Ping definitely knows how to make a performer without all the flash and buzz that other manufacturers do.

They certainly do! The G30 I had was performing basically ideal for my swing. I only upgraded to the M5 because I wanted a different sound/feel and it should give me a few extra yards based on my fitting.

Curious if any testers from 2018 or 2020 have measured their actual driver weight vs. actual weight of the 'red stick'. I'm using the 'senior' sticks given my slower SS, however, my actual driver weight is about 50g. heavier than the 'blue 'stick'  Kyle, who by the way is very responsive, suggested changing out the grip to add a bit of extra weight. I was also thinking of adding lead weight to take it to the 110%. Your thoughts? 

Thinking about just soldering one some weight? Is it overall 10% higher Or does a specific amount need to be in the head of the red stick? I would definitely think soldering would work and be the best bet

Looks like I’m going to have to get creative this week. I should have enough room in my living room if I move the couch.

Back to the weight thing - I never bothered to weigh my driver because there’s a club’s actual weight and it’s swing weight.

I doubt my ability to successfully find my driver’s actual weight and trust that it’s swing weight is D4. Ay least it was when my fitter checked it for me pre COVID.

Kenny and I went back and forth on this quite a bit. I love the guy but we are wired differently - the weight thing never bothered me.

On a similar note though my 410 feels lighter to me than my G400 LST did. I actually wonder if I wouldn’t benefit from the yellow stick.

The grass always seems greener you know.

She's spot on with the same percentage increases. She started at a slower swing speed but continues to improve every week.

Here's Kyle's response to the 'added weight' question - I'm going to stick with the current configuration: 

"Hi Tony, our red club is actually only 336 grams total which is the heaviest in the men’s set. I’d like you to stick with the way the set is designed that you have currently. If you add any further weight there is a very high chance that you’ll actually train your swing to be slower. The key in OverSpeed training is light weight to reset how fast the brain tells the body to make the golf swing. I’ve seen over 50,000 golfers use this system so I’m going off of the experience I have here to get you the best results.
I appreciate your willingness to want to get this right"

Sooo I got a hard “no” from my wife on swinging in the house... to be fair, I have broken a light fixture on more than one occasion from swinging inside, so there is that. LOl

She tried to speak to my ego though. She said, “You know you won’t be able to swing as fast and hard as you really can inside vs outside.”

Played 18 this morning and figured things our with the driver about 1/3 of the way through the round. And I absolutely started pounding the ball. 
Week 2 is a compete and rather than posting the same spreadsheet week to week I thought I'd mix things up.
 
I really was hitting my 3 wood and hybrid well today and when I got home I took some swings on the launch monitor to confirm what I was seeing on the course. 
I play a 21* head, lofted down to 20* and 1/4 of an inch shorter than the standard 3 hybrid. Typical carry has always been about 225 to 230. 
Not anymore

Your back and forth on the weights and conversation on this thread caught my interest.  Iv'e been playing the G400 for a while and love it, played the 410 for a month while waiting on a replacement for my 400 (it cracked last summer) and I have been debating on 'upgrading' to the 410, but like you, the consistency I have with my G400 has me not wanting to take any chances.  Anyway, it sounds like we have a very similar set-up, so no I may consider adding a heavier grip or some lead tape to the heads of my sticks as well to cover any weight difference; maybe I should get a scale first, but it sounds like you have provided some sound data for me to work with.  I wondered about that form the beginning;  Thanks for posting this and for the associated conversation.  So many moving parts...

Whelp, I went to do my normal leg workout. Did my first 3 sets of back squats just fine. As I was racking one of the weight plates I felt a pop in my lower back along my spine and hit the floor. Every step hurts now.

This sucks.

Dude...pop means doctor time. The training system can wait. Back/spine issues aren’t something you rub some dirt on and power through.

Trust me, no powering through this. I can hardly move without it hurting, much less swing a stick at Mach 1. I’m just extremely frustrated. Injuries are a part of life and I’ve had my share, but it is never fun.

I get it, it’s sucks. Missed what should have been my second season playing due to hernia issues. Just telling you what you already know...see a doc and get it taken care of before it becomes a permanent part of your life. My two cents; I feel for you man...

Just a little week 2 update. 
I saw a nice little jump in my initial swing speed! Week 1, my initial swing speed was in the ball park of 100-103. Week 2, my initial swing speed each day was 108. 
My regiment speeds and after regiment speeds stayed about the same, but definitely an increase in before speed. 👍🏻

Man, I hate hearing that. Definitely get it checked out asap. Health is definitely more important than training. I hope you get better soon.

Has anyone asked Kyle what Superspeed’s rebuttal to the blue club challenge would be?

Take care of yourself ChasingScratch - we had someone in our group go down and fall behind - it was no big deal in the long run.

Also your wife was correct about being faster outside than inside, grass or first allow you to use the ground much better than synthetic surfaces.
