About to take it into the testing bay tomorrow and put it up against my beloved G30. GolfTown has a decent trade in event so it feels like a good time to upgrade. 44.5" is my prefered length and I love you can grab this already setup properly in the tour length.

    it's miles better than the g30 imo. I went from g30ls to f9 tour length and am very happy. the g30ls I got when it came out, and I really loved that thing.

    Yep. As long as the trade in value doesn't exceed the new club price you're good to go.

    I love mine. That sound that it makes when you hit dead center will be way more gratifying than your G30 I think. Although not for everyone, I'm really a fan of the way it looks too. I've never had a G30 so I can't really say anything about the performance but, for me, it out performed my G400 Max.

    Just looked at these at a local course and I actually really like the look. They have a simulator that I may swing it on if I lose patience but would really like to hit it outside the same day. Come on warmer weather.

    Don't know which Helium shaft you went with but I have the same set up as you with Helium F3. Loft set at 10.5 with heavy weight in the front. Man this is the longest / most accurate set up I've had in a very long time.

    I was hoping for a new one. They stated in the listing that some had been used to hit just a few balls. Took a chance, and unfortunately i received a questionable one. No biggie...they refunded my money, so all is good.
