Ping Crossovers - lesson learned


Recommended Posts

I bought a few ping g400 crossovers at the right price and put them on the launch monitor with the stock Alta CB 70 soft regular (Softer than I would play). The 22 degree 4 crossover is an absolute rocket launcher. On a smoked shot it was challenging my 4w in distance, but with the soft shaft it was spraying left and right.

I thought to myself, this thing would be perfect with my iron shafts, more control and less distance would absolutely fit the bill. So, I pulled the altas, glued in my gamer iron shaft and COULD. NOT. HIT. A. SHOT. I waited a day, warmed up, and just could not get anything out of the combo.

In desperation I pulled the steel shafts and threw in a graphite hybrid shaft I’ve had success with in the past and soft stepped the tip. All of a sudden I was absolutely smoking these again and they were insanely easy to hit.

Lesson learned, if Ping puts a graphite shaft in something as stock, there’s probably a good reason for it.

Did you iron shafts make the club too flat because of a length difference?  Or maybe the swing weight was too light?

Ping does offer them in steel, but they do change up the specs a bit. I have the 410s and went with graphite option, but steel is available. Pretty sure they make them a inch shorter in steel and something else.

Love these clubs and don't see them in many bags sadly.
