    One of these days I need to get my butt over to Cool Clubs in Irvine and do a fitting. I have the G30 LS with the Tour shaft (9* set at 10* similar to yours) and while I'm hitting the driver better than I have in years, there is always the "is there anything better". I think getting fit would eliminate that and that alone would be worth the money (unless a better fit was going to cost me $$$$). Anyways thanks for the great write up.

    Would you please do me a favor and edit your post to not include my entire WITB? It's very pic heavy and it really mucks up the thread when you have to scroll through the whole thing again just to get to the next post.



    Thanks Brian!

    Hi Mike - just interested in why you did not try the R15 430? I have put it in the bag and it is awesome.

    I did try it... I actually own the driver. I've seen some pretty good on-course results with it, but it's not as user friendly as the G30. I do like the club, and am not giving up on it, but the G30 is still giving me great numbers while being quite a bit more forgiving.

    The shaft is in, and the driver is built!



    I ended up ordering through my club builder as he was quite a bit more affordable than Cool Clubs would have been. Everything was built to spec last night and I'll have it on course for the first time tomorrow morning.



    Final build specs:

    Ping G30 LS Tec - 9* Head Set at 10*

    Graphite Design AD MJ 6X - Straight in, No Tipping

    45.25" Length

    D4 Swing Weight

    Golf Pride NDMC Grip



    I can't wait until tomorrow morning to see what this thing can do!

    What did your club builder do to get the swing weight of the G30 to D4? How do you feel about the sound and feel?

    No real changes since I put the G30LS/AD MJ 6X in the bag. The TEE fairways and Mizuno wedges are wonderful. I'm playing J40 CB PW-5 iron on my old KBS tour shaft set. The putter spot is a bit of a rotation, but they are all fantastic!



    I did recently take the MP-H4 4 iron out of the bag. My "full time job" swing just wasn't giving me the desired results in that club anymore. I picked up a new Cobra Bio Cell hybrid on the cheap, pulled the Steel Fiber shaft from my 4i and put it in the hybrid. Sure, I feel like an old man with 4 headcovers in the top end of the bag, but I'm able to step up to a 200 yard shot with a bit of confidence now, so it's a worthwhile tradeoff!

    Regarding the swing weight question... I have no idea. I just use them, I don't build them.



    As for sound and feel. Well... It's loud... really loud. Not "square driver" loud, but loud. It feels like it's made of metal. So much of feel comes from the sound aspect of things that I feel that the description of sound is the description of feel. So I guess it feels loud. LOL



    The shaft feels superb. Nice and smooth, easy to load/unload properly, etc... Basically everything you want from a properly fitted shaft. The combo performs great and I don't see myself looking for a change anytime soon.





    Cheers,



    Mike

    I stumbled into your WITB from your new DH89 thread Mike. Absolutely stunning collection of putters. I'd never seen the 'Eraser' before, but have ogled over your Lajosi a few times ; )



    The best WITB photography I've ever seen. Images are so crisp. I'd post a WITB, but you'd never be able to make out what the clubs were with my sub-standard photographic skills.



    Cheers,



    Mike.

    I am particularly interested in your classic Anser putter. I have never seen something like that. Is that refurbished/restored?

    Nope... It was brand new. You can still order the classic Ansers through a Ping dealer. This one happened to have the additions of a sound slot and tungsten weights by Ping WRX.



    Would you please do me a favor and edit your original post to take out the quote of my post #1? When people do that, it posts all of the photos again and creates a lot of unnecessary scrolling. It really does muck up the thread and make it difficult to navigate.

    Have you tried the new MP 5 or MP 4 compared to the 69s? Just curious b/c I had a set of the 68s then went to the MP 4s a few months ago and didn't try anything in between. I'm thinking MP 5 next but I've heard great things about the 69 so was thinking of going that route.

    I haven't had a chance to hit the MP-5s, but I did spend some quality time with the MP-4s. From a playability perspective, they couldn't touch the MP-69s (for me). The 69s are simply the easiest to hit blade I've ever held in my hands. In my opinion, they didn't get the credit they deserved.



    From a looks perspective, it's hard to beat the MP-4 or MP-5. They really are gorgeous irons.



    That said, I currently have J40 CBs in the bag and don't see them coming out any time soon. I still have the MP-69 heads laying around, just in case I come across a cheap set of KBS Tour Stiffs and feel like a bit of a change.

    This is such a sweet set up. I would love to hear about how the Byron compares to the Lajosi in your experience. Are the DH89's GSS?

    Sure am... He's the best!



    He has a small shop set up in the garage. Doesn't have the flightscope anymore, but still provides a better build than anything I've found priced remotely close to him.



    Feel free to PM if you need contact info.

    Well, how about that... my 2,000th post.



    May as well celebrate with new wedges!



    Really excited for this setup. The 54.08M will be bent to effectively be a 56.10M. I know they have a 56.08M, but I wanted a little extra bounce, so this should be a nice solution. I might even write a nice little "+2" next to the loft/lie stamping in some sweet tour issue sharpie. image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />



    KBS Tour White Wedge shafts will be installed in these bad boys over the next couple days!
