    One thing I learned about lie angle many years ago from a professional, someone who takes a very shallow divot or no divot at all will hardly notice a lie angle issue, but somebody that actually goes down after the ball, that toe or heal going in with the lie angle being off, it does make a difference and I’ve never been able to take that small blade of grass divot, mine usually weigh about a pound LOL. Too flat I slice, too upright I hook it off the planet and I’ve proven that with my driver by changing from a standard to an upright position, I could not hit the ball to the right at all. After today once I get everything adjusted and if I get a chance to go out and play tonight I’ll let you know how things went I think I’m gonna pull those sensors off my grip to because I think those are causing me to grip the club a little higher than I like.

    Went out played 9 today 106 heat index, hit most of the irons, 4,5,6,8,9,U and SW(54°) love the feel, straight, dialed in my distance pretty good today. You can work them pretty much either way. They seem to hold greens well, tomorrow need to do some range time to work on my ball position. I had one hole, slight down hill lie, 150 over a lake, was only the hole (8 iron) gave me fat contact issues. 1 1/2 hours for 9, shot 38, drive OB once ruin great 9. Screen shots below don’t represent actual ball flight curve.

    Accra is the truth. Other than Yonex, they're the best selling shafts in the store.

    I've had these for about 3 months now and while they are forgiving and all. The sound is really starting to turn me off. A very loud clack even on solidly struck shots.
    I'm not sure how much longer I can deal with that. Probably not past when the T200 and T300 are released.

    What kind of a ball are you playing? I honestly don't hear much of anything playing a Snell MTB.

    IMO, that's your problem with the sound. I tried the Snell MTB-X and ProV1X and almost put the 410's up for sale. Ball choice makes all the difference in the world with these irons. I'm playing so well with them now I wouldn't care it it sounded like I was hitting a garbage can, they ain't going nowhere.

    Well if that is the case. I'll sell the irons before I change balls. I've never had this sound with any club, and I've played AP1, AP2, Srixon 585, P790 all with the VX.

    I'm kinda in the opposite camp than you. I feel I can find an iron that will play just as well, bit there's not a better ball than the ProV and I use it alot more with wedges and putter than with the irons as I only have 7-P in irons.

    Totally understand. I'd probably feel the same if my handicap hadn't dropped 3 points in 2 months.

    I have WAY too many putters, PING, Slighter and Mannkrafted. They all take a turn on occasion, but the Craz-E is "crazy" good! :) I can't part with it. And you also never know when a putter might misbehave!

    I got the 410’s I just find any soft ball, Vice tour, E12 soft, Callaway super soft, but want to try a quieter club, I just fitted for Mizuno 919 Tour, very muted, and playable. Moved to 410’s as a 8 hdcp, played twice now. What makes a very low handicaper play solid all the time is a repeatable swing/ball striking ability, thus my case, 8 hdcp, -5 on front yesterday +6 on back, best round ever still. Misses a little right, get adjusted today a bit upright. Can’t wait to compare the mizuno irons, distance wise, Ping will win.

    I'd change the ball before the irons personally. The ball is the easiest thing to change and the cheapest. :)

    New poster here so forgive me if I am in the wrong place to post this- I was fit for some G410's on Saturday. (Great fitting until afterwards when he gave me a price and told me I owed more a few days later. I didn't have to pay for the fitting but there was a 25% markup on the clubs, but I digress.) He told me he would order them on Monday with the anticipation that they would be here in a few weeks. After the pricing mess, I had him change a few things around (1 hybrid instead of 2). I am hoping it didn't put a kink in me getting the clubs next week. How long did it take for you guys to get the clubs if they were shipped to your house. Also, what carrier did they use? I am signed up for auto-tracking with FedEx and will get the notifications, but when I asked my fitter if I would get updates from him he told me no and apparently Ping wont tell you either.

    He charged you more than the $125 a iron?
    Mine took 10 days. The guy who ordered them can get you ship dates. I'm not sure your fitter knows what is going on

    Yes. But I didn't realize it until afterwards when he called and said he needed more because I guess I was too excited to think. Then when I got home and started breaking it down, I though wow he over charged me. I asked him for a breakdown and it was about 20% over what I had calculated I should have been. I am frustrated, but the order has been placed so I didn't figure there was anything I could do. The thing that sucks for him is I had 3 other guys lined up to use him too, but called them and told them to cancel.

    Honestly, I would have cancelled the order instantly if anyone pulled that sort of crap on me.

    You can buy Ping clubs, whether stock or custom order, for almost exactly the same price everywhere in the country. Ping have always gone to great lengths to make sure nobody gets away with undercutting their set price. There's just literally no reason to let someone gouge you on Ping clubs, the manufacturer assures an ample margin to the dealer at the set price.

    I get it. The problem is the way I paid (I used a big sum on a giftcard that I had won in a weighloss challenge). I didn't know how in the world to ask for it back. If it had been all on a credit card, I would have. Also, I I didn't get my fitting numbers. I didn't know what to tell whoever I ordered it from, what to get. I lived about 3.5 hours away from this place, so they had me and they knew it... I did just didn't realize it until I got home.

    Both North Butte and Lawsonman are correct. If he charged you over the retail price, there's no other way to say it than he took advantage of you. Also he can tell you the tracking info. We are a PING account and I have access to every order in our system, tracking number included---they do ship Fed Ex Ground---so you should get your notification if they are coming directly to you as well. Which is also a bit odd, we haven't had any requests for it so I haven't asked, but I would think PING would only ship to the account, not drop ship directly to the consumer. But again I could be wrong on that.
    There just seems to be a lot off in this situation
    In the end, I hope you like the clubs and are very happy with them, despite my above comments about the sound, they are fantastic looking clubs and they do perform, there's no arguing that.

    I've had these for about 3 months now and while they are forgiving and all. The sound is really starting to turn me off. A very loud clack even on solidly struck shots.
    I'm not sure how much longer I can deal with that. Probably not past when the T200 and T300 are released.

    What kind of a ball are you playing? I honestly don't hear much of anything playing a Snell MTB.

    ProV1X

    I was playing it with my AP1 and didn't have anything like that.

    IMO, that's your problem with the sound. I tried the Snell MTB-X and ProV1X and almost put the 410's up for sale. Ball choice makes all the difference in the world with these irons. I'm playing so well with them now I wouldn't care it it sounded like I was hitting a garbage can, they ain't going nowhere.

    Well if that is the case. I'll sell the irons before I change balls. I've never had this sound with any club, and I've played AP1, AP2, Srixon 585, P790 all with the VX.

    I'm kinda in the opposite camp than you. I feel I can find an iron that will play just as well, bit there's not a better ball than the ProV and I use it alot more with wedges and putter than with the irons as I only have 7-P in irons.

    I'd change the ball before the irons personally. The ball is the easiest thing to change and the cheapest. :)

    I get that, and of course it's the most logical and economical. But since when have we operated on those two principals around here...ha
    But seriously, I love the ProVX and there are some that are ALMOST as good, the Z Star and B'stone X in my mind.
    I'll try a regular ProV with them tonight and see if there is any difference.

    Don’t let this ruin your experience and enjoining your new clubs. They are amazingly good and deserve any penny, especially if given by gift card.

    I’m glad a year ago I finally found my current fitter/club provider. Yes cost if you have a fitting, but that’s waved you buy clubs, and you pay for the clubs once they arrive, and the next day you have a build and ship date .

    I agree. Our local golf store finally bit the bullet and got a launch monitor that worked for us lefties. Nothing beats a good fitter and numbers you can see.

    Now I will go with a blasphemy here in WRX forum and probably will be banned forever and ever.
    I don't trust fitting, at my handicap level at least. One day I'm on and hit mostly good, another one I'm off and hit not that good.
    Swingweight, shaft and so on are hardware and I am convinced that we can adapt to everything. SW, shaft, etc. are only excuses where people hides behind a bad moment/bad swing or too lazy/impatient to spend time and adapt to the new hardware.
    Things change if you have a very repeatable swing, but in the sense that you will maximise the hardware in order to perform near the maximum with your software (swing abilities and swing speed)

    I agree we can adapt to equipment that doesn't fit us but a good fitter can make a world of difference in your play. I'm living proof.

    How much you want for em?

    LOL...They wont' be for sale anytime soon. I just had my first Hole-in-One ever with them last week and a career personal best round of 82 as well.

    But anybody who knows my history of buying and selling would bookmark me for notifications...ha

    I need to finally get over to your place to play with you before you get rid of these beauties.

    Congrats again on the ace. I am still pitching a shutout (45 years!)

    I'm somewhere in between. There's no reason to need to adapt to something that isn't a good match for you and a qualified person should be able to steer you in the right direction.

    On the other hand, below a certain level of swing consistency, I can see the problem with getting all obsessed with one day's results. Personally, I also have trouble making 100+ swings hitting into a screen or on the range. One, I get tired at some point. Two, I think it is easy to make some compensations to make things work when hitting to the same spot.

    Ideally, I like to play a couple of rounds with something before buying. But you can't always do this and rarely can you try all the combos available. But by now I also have a sense of what is a decent match for my swing and can exclude some stuff right away.

    I've also never checked any launch monitor numbers with irons. Maybe it's wrong but I've just gone with the eye test and whether the ballflight works in various winds.
