  1. A lot of wishful thinking here. Hate to be the bearer of bad news! You have to purchase the driver first and if Rory happens to win you will be reimbursed! Dicks and GG employees need to brush up on the rules of the contest. Sending in a # form means nothing unless you buy a m5 or m6 from Dicks or GG!

So great! Also played an Anser for over 5 seasons. Why can't Ping make drivers like these again.... Some might argue that they have! The G400 lst is about as good as it gets! Also really like the 410. I game an anser 20 hybrid that i cant get out of my bag. The older gen Ping drivers were def ahead of their time.
  3. > @Nixhex524 said: > What's the worst that happens? You have to chase your 8i head down? Give it a shot.... Personally I would be very nervous about it and probably wouldn't use it, though...LOL I guess the worst thing that could happen would be for it to fly off and kill the beer cart girl!
  4. Check the box before you throw it out. KBS Shaft bands usually come uninstalled. If they arent in the box send proclubs an email and they will probably send u the bands in a small envelope!
  5. I wouldnt use it. It may or may not fail, but its not somthing you want in the back of your mind!
  6. Raw is awesome! Do Not put gun oil or any other type of oul on them...especially on the face. Let them do their thing!
  7. > @asumnerdawg said: > If I were ordering a new driver from say Ping, if I wanted it shorter than standard, would I need to tell them to tip the shaft? Do they do a standard tipping regardless? How would I know what to tell them? How do I know if I even need it tipped? > > I apologize for the ignorance. I've thought often of shortening the shaft a touch on my next driver purchase but never knew what to do to ensure it is correct. > > TIA No. Unless u want it to play stiffer the shaft does not need to be tipped. However.... If u want it to play shorter you would
  8. > @tatertot said: > I have heard from more than one fitter that grip size doesn't matter, it's only about comfort and preference. Not saying it's right, just that it's not unusual in the industry. Go hit a driver with a jumbo max(Dechambeau) grip on it and get back to me! Its like swinging a shovel!
  9. Maybe?? Probably a little, but i dont know for sure? I had an Aldila HM-40 about 30 years ago that i hit 25 yards farther than anything ive ever hit! My car was broken onto and my bats were gone forever! I was playing college golf at the time and to this day i have never found an hm-40 that i liked let alone bombed! Companies change the mateials they use over the years and while it looks great on paper its just hard to tell? My only suggestion would be to give it a shot. Ive tried probably 25 or 30 hm-40s and still searching!
  10. > @wobgon said: > I pretty much agree with all the responses.....Thanks for the help......These s55's are in such nice shape that I would like to make them work......I talked to ping and as was suggested by Socrates, these heads had been reweighted to make them heavier......I can send them to ping and have them weighted to what I request for 13.00 a club...….Now I need to decide if I want to go that route. Honestly.. For $104 i would send them back. If by chance the steelfiber 110 is a shaft that you like, then maybe thats an option? Not worth the time or energy playing the guessin
  11. It looks real to me and has a somewhat expensive japaneese grip on it! The shiny epoxy around the insert is throwing me for a loop. Curious how much you paid? I have a couple of theories????
  12. It is probably cut down and needs the tape to get to a playable swingweight.
  13. I like eve everything to be the same. Kind of like getting new tires for your car and putting 3 michelins and a goodyear on!!!!
  14. > @Nessism said: > Huge shaft weight difference. Maybe try Modus 105? Great example of a "fitting" gone wrong. Agree with shaft weight and i also like the modus 105. The left shot may be a little from the club being too upright, but that would be a guess. The hose rockets are usually more of an inside swing path issue than a lie issue. Its still early in the season...keep working on it and im sure u will see better results. Im a huge fan of the iblade, i200, i210 and i500. Tim

Cmon now..... > > I kind of thought that it was a given that everyone took adjustable driver and fairway heads off when flying? I admit i have been in a hurry and not done it, but drivers with adapters have b

But you're right I probably should've just kept being a pain in the a** I totally understand. Im the same way. You spent a bunch of money and a best case scenario woul
  17. Are you talking about pulling all of the shafts and gluing them back in when you get to your destination? Hopefully you are just talking about clubs that use an adapter tip and wrench, but it kind of sounds like you mean the entire set?

Atleast a (short) mens set or senior. > > Re: Flynn, I spoke with a rep, but shipping to France is not worth it. For the price of shaft + shipping + repair I can buy a new US Kids Golf 3 wood ! > And not sure whether you actually recommend ladies, men, or senior flex, as you mention the three in your comment ? Thanks ! > I apologize.... I didnt realize you were in france.
  19. > @leftycabe said: > I’ve had the iblades, i200s and have recently moved to the i210s. To me, the i210s have been the softest of all. I have the KBS S+ shafts with Cushin inserts (same set up as the i200’s) and these feel softer to me. It might be worth verifying the authenticity through PING to make sure you didn’t stumble upon a a counterfeit set. Not saying you bought them from a scammer, they might not have known. Happened to my brother with an Odyssey putter before. I agree with this ^^^^^^ Clickiest from least clicky to most clicky 1. I210 2. Iblade 3. I200 Would also say
  20. I ordered one for my son about a month ago and thought the same thing. I just used the tip of the wrench and was able to pop it out as well. My first thought was that some dummy epoxied the weight in place!
  21. > @tyorke1 said: > nice , looking forward to it, i picked it without trying, more of a time thing. i still have several including my gamer in case i dont like it. I do the same thing all of the time and always have. I will read about a shaft and if it sounds like a good fit i will buy it!!! Not saying that people shouldnt get properly fit...just saying that i have played golf for 45 of 49 years ive been on this earth and usually get "in the ballpark" when it comes to finding driver shafts. Might cost a little more in the long run, but its part of the fun! If it doesnt work for me it
  22. Ladies flex or go to the Flynn golf website and order a driver shaft to your sons specs. At his age he is close to graduating to a mens set! Atleast a (short) mens set or senior.
