  1. Lol, I don’t know although I did have TGW message Ping a couple weeks ago to find out the status and TGW said that it was supposed to ship on August 5, so maybe Ping is getting caught up to some degree.
  2. Ordered a G425 Max driver with Tensei AV Raw Orange on June 10 and was delivered today, so 5 weeks and 4 days.
  3. For what it’s worth, I noticed today that both the black and regular P790’s are completely pulled from TGW and Golf Galaxy. The TI version only is still an option at GG.
  4. Ping G425 3 and 4 hybrids. Have never had any luck hitting Ping hybrids but once I had a club pro help me with my ball placement and address, theses things are automatic and maybe the easiest clubs I’ve ever hit consistently straight...
  5. I ordered mine with different shafts on March 23 and haven’t heard anything yet. Hoping to hear something next week.
  6. Ok, so I haven't been on here in a very long time, but I had to share this and see if this is what is happening with everyone else. I custom ordered a Titleist TSI 2 driver and received it to spec. There was no torque wrench included so no big deal, it must have been a mistake and I'll call them. I did and the customer service lady told me that the decision was made to not include a torque wrench with any purchased for the current run of new metal woods. Are you kidding me??? A $550 driver (not including tax) doesn't come with a torque wrench like it does with all of the other manufacturers??? I get that probably all fitters and even past purchasers of Titleist woods already have one, but come on Titleist. If this is true and what's happening to everyone purchasing a new Titleist driver for the first time, this may very well be the cheapest thing I've heard of that I can remember.
  7. Ping G400 Max with 44.5 " TFC Tour 65 shaft. Not the longest (still close though) I've ever hit, but definitely a fairway finder.

  9. I'm guessing because forged irons are more expensive to make and most of the golfers super game improvement irons are aimed at aren't willing to put down that kind of cash, although I have no idea if that's entirely accurate. The one set that comes to mind though is the Callaway Razr XF. A buddy of mine has a set of these and although they're at least partially forged, they're not as soft as a Mizuno MP iron but they do feel great and are super easy to hit. Fantastic irons but came with a premium price and not sure if they're still available.
  10. Thanks for the replies everyone. On a different note, does anyone have any time with the Big Bertha (non-Alpha) and an initial review that they could share, positive or negative? I know it just came out today, but there seems to be a lot of lucky people out there that somehow get these before everyone else.
  11. [quote name='nova6868' timestamp='1392399958' post='8668005'] You realize they only used 6 testers...? Also, BB had limited options available for testers. I think SLDR and G25 both had 2-3 lofts available. And besides, the only real standout distance wise was the SLDR. And I admit that knowing I don't even like the SLDR. [/quote] I didn't know they only used 6 testers, that does make a difference.
  12. [quote name='swizbeatz' timestamp='1392396937' post='8667681'] I just pulled a shaft from last years gamer and put a g25 tip on it effectively committing to playing it at least for the start of the year. First ping driver since the old tisi or whatever it was called ~13 years ago. I keep reading about high MOI and I saw that on the course in the fall, I also am a low spin player so most of these new drivers won't work great for me. Its a legit driver, its not the absolute longest but its a great combo of length and accuracy. I hit the 3 wood against the I25 3 wood on trackman and the G will be in the bag as well as soon as I find one. How is the testing going for the jetspeed? If I had to play a TM wood this year the jetspeed would be it, I really liked the 3 wood when I hit it. [/quote] I answered a pm on the Jetspeed driver earlier and here's the short version: Winter has been rough here in Oklahoma, so this is just based on several times hitting it compared to my RBZ Stage 2 (which I love). From what little I have to go by, the Jetspeed is just as long but not as forgiving as the RBZ Stage 2. Sound and feel are typical TaylorMade, not the best but not the worst. Definitely lower spin, so for us mere mortals who don't have 110 mph swing speeds, the RBZ Stage 2 might be the better option. This is based on stock shafts cut down to 45" so obviously what I've said has no merit if you were to get properly fit. I can see how the Jetspeed could be very good for another individual (definitely one to test) but I'm either staying with the RBZ Stage 2 or trying one of this year's models from a different manufacturer. Having grown up playing mostly Callaway drivers, I'm very confused as to how it could rank so low in one website's reviews while being at the top of 2 others. Even with ad revenue playing a part in the "2 others", I just can't imagine that they would fudge the results that much for an underperforming driver from an ad customer. Maybe I'm being naïve and they would.
  13. [quote name='swizbeatz' timestamp='1392389725' post='8666641'] My thoughts are ad dollars play a huge effect and that everyone needs to hit them for themselves to see what's BS and what's not. This year surprisingly the SLDR is legit and the BB is not. Sucks for the TM haters, I'd generally say I'm a part of that group too lol. Only my opinion of course. [/quote] Thanks for the reply. I know ad dollars can influence one's ability to be unbiased, but I can't imagine it would to this degree (maybe so). The Big Bertha was almost dead last in both accuracy and distance, which I just can't fathom based on my past experience with Callaway drivers. Either way, guess I'm going to give the G25 a shot this spring. Even though 90% of my equipment is Ping, I think I'm the only guy in the world who's never gotten along with Ping drivers.
