Why why why does PING do this to me!?  Looks like the embargo is up and and the new PING is getting a lot of praise... 

I think I'm going to have to give it a try and see how they feel.  Anyone else salivating like I am? 🤤

I want to like the Ping drivers but I can never really get used to the turbulator look.  The 425 fairway woods and hybrids look fantastic without them.  I wonder if this is a test to see if they should move away from the turbulators in the next line of drivers?

They have been around for a while now, and it feels like they could do something else for aero if they wanted to. They never bothered me in the G30, but I do agree the new fairway looks very good with the 3 dots.

I'm hoping they will be available for my rescheduled fitting with Truespec... I need to add complexity to my decision tree.

Yes - I must say that I wish that I had never traded my G400 LST in for the 410 - it's not that the 410 is bad it's just that I feel like the other head was a better fit for me.  I'm anxious to get refit for driver.  I think that I'm leaving some yards on the table right now.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Big deal for me with these is that AV Orange Raw comes as a no charge custom option. That's massive, as is the fact you can get either the 55 or 65. I love the Orange but the cost always shied me away. Ping shoots to the top of the board.

This one is a legit keeper. Had an LST 10.5 since December, and I'll for certain getting the Max to try, as well as another LST. They got this line right, no doubt. The irons, on the other hand.......nope, no thank you.....

How'd you find out it is no cost shaft option as opposed to an upcharge?  I'm not seeing overall cost yet. But interested to determine the best shaft options.   I hit the head at a fitter last week and it was excellent.  I was at 105 club head speed and still hitting 300+ drives 100 swings in.

The no upcharge shaft options are listed on pings website

On all that is Holy, don't overlook the Rogue White. That shaft is absolutely filthy to be a stock offering.

I won't, but I know it's not in my profile for optimum distance from past fittings. I've tried it in other heads, maybe I can mate it with the G425.

I was able to take some swings yesterday with the LST/Rogue 7X combo, which would be closest to my Ventus black. Saw the same swing speeds between the LST and my Honma, but the ball speed from Ping couldn’t keep up with my TR20 460. I like the looks, the feel, the sound, the adjustability, etc of the LST. Nice club!

I’ll still do a full fitting when everything comes out to see if there’s a better match shaft-wise to pair with the Ping, and I’m still thinking I want to give the Max a SERIOUS go!!!! After seeing numerous people on YouTube get very similar results between Max and LST, these heads might be closer than ever before, which is a good thing!!!!

That's an impressive feat for Honma!  Just goes to show the quality stuff they're putting out too.  I too and more interested in the Max after seeing close it has been performing to the LST.  I think it could give the Speedzone a real run for its money if it can keep up on the good hits and the MOI can add a little stability.  I'll be going to see my friend at the store soon, and from what he said they were upgrading their fitting bays to GC quads... so hopefully I'll be able to get some swings in too while I'm there.

Hit the g425 LST today with stock shaft options and my fitted shaft. Did not like. Lived low on the face. Did not like the sound. Hit bombs with my g410 LST
 

No launch monitor numbers as I was outside but visually it was clear my G410 LST was going further and straighter 

when a club fits, it fits
