  1. Will Ping ship new builds without grips, at the buyer's request?
  2. I just had a similar discussion yesterday at a scamble, when one of my playing partners whipped out his TM Burner Bubble 3-wood and someone was giving him grief. Granted, we're not talking a 25-year old model here, but IMO: unless you want adjustability, the improvements are minimal. To each his own, but for my game, the FW is one of the least important clubs in my bag, which is why I'm perfectly happy with my "old" G25 4W in the bag. Good luck with whatever you decide.
  3. I'm sure that I'm not the only one with this scenario: went from Ping i-series 4-U (23* - 50*) to Ping G425 5-U (23.5* - 49.5*), essentially eliminating one club within the same loft span. So I guess I'm down to 13 without a true need for anything else. I'll see how this translates to real course results once I put the new irons in play. Maybe add the G425 4-iron or a 22* hybrid, if needed?
  4. This was the biggest selling point for me.
  5. Ordered 5/24, was quoted 8 weeks. 5-U w/ stock AWT shafts, stock grips, white dot lie angle.
  6. Impulsively ordered a set yesterday after demoing at my local shop. I hit the i210 and G425, trying to be as open-minded as possible, but really wanting (and expecting to order) the i210s. I haven't put a G-series in the bag since the G, but a few things sold me on the 425: * Subtle cavity badge (compared to 410 and 400) * Slightly smaller footprint compared to recent G offereings * Surprisingly good feel (I was unimpressed with the CORE-eye feel on the G) * Shorter lead time vs. the i210. Shouldn't matter, but honestly it did * Better spin and dispersion on the 425
  7. I called a couple weeks ago to verify a serial #. I called 10 minutes into their business day on a Tuesday and was on hold for 1/2 hour. At the 30-minute mark (and maybe earlier as well, I don't recall) it gave me the option to leave a phone number for an associate to call me back, so that's what I did. I received a call back a few hours later.
  8. I think it’s great to throw an old set in the conversation every now and then. Re-enforces that a classic can definitely hold its over vs the latest and greatest. Taking distance gains out of the equation, I’ve found the biggest difference in new vs old is the muted/softer feel across the face in newer sets, due to cavity badges, CTP, etc.
  9. Ruined my Windlite Flex 1/4 zip wool pullover when it was accidently mixed in with the rest of the laundry. Any recommendations for the closest comparison at a reasonable price? Thanks in advance.
