  1. [quote name='afireinside' timestamp='1309199627' post='3339178'] 80 percent guys???? I find that very hard to believe. I have no data or research to back this up but my golf instructor is a physics teacher and says on average range balls travel 8-10% less than regular balls. [/quote] Yeah, I was going to say I think I am about 10% on the range as opposed to on the course so that sounds accurate in my experiences.
  2. It looks alright but I am sure that paint is going to chip pretty easily.
  3. [quote name='Dizz' timestamp='1309187769' post='3338542'] [quote name='BlakeBstone' timestamp='1309125812' post='3337027'] longest driver i have ever played. Paired it with a diamana WB 73x and it is very easy to work both ways. For those that say its not forgiving makes me wonder how far off the SS they are missing it lol. [/quote] It's really hard to argue with the lack of tour presence this club has... for PING pros the G15 is probably in their hands 10:1. I can't imagine too many of them are missing the center of the face on a regular basis. The G20 is already in the hands of tou
  4. Where Can I find this?I am looking for the below pictured Ping bucket hat. I am guessing it is Tour issue only but if anyone knows where I can find one of these let me know. Thanks.
  5. I'm kind of the club guy at my golf course and I just helped 3 guys I know at my club who are taking lessons reconfigure their nike and taylor made drivers to fit swing changes they are making. All 3 were slicers that are being taught to come from the inside properly and as a result the face on their drivers dont need to be 2* shut anymore. So I guess your point isn't really valid is it? I believe that your guys adjusted their drivers 2* shut, to prevent their slice !!! Again, had they taken a lesson , They could have saved money on buying an over-hyped adjustable driver !!! As it a
  6. [quote name='jbrunone' timestamp='1308712574' post='3326098'] I have oversizes grips on my clubs and they fit fine in my voyage bag. Im not sure if i understand your question however. [/quote] With the K56 it is hard to get clubs with oversized grips back into the bag. They tend to stick way out and all the heads are kind of "jumbled together" at the top. The mouth of the bag is just so small in the K56 and I was wondering if the Voyage had a larger mouth size. I have been trying to compare the two bags to see whether or not I should get the Voyage.
  7. How much room at the top for clubs is there compared to the K-56. I have had a K-56 for awhile but there just doesn't seem to be much room for clubs with oversized grips in it.
  8. I tried one of the GP Multi Compound grips on one of my clubs and have really liked the feel of it. However, while the feel is very good I absolutely hate looking down and seeing the GOLF PRIDE stamped on the grip as sometimes if the grip isn't put on perfect the face will tend to look open or closed. Would it affect the performance of this grip if I put it on "backwards" so the logo is facing away from the face and isn't seen when taking your stance and looking down at the clubface? Thanks.
  9. [quote name='Ranger Rick' timestamp='1308413799' post='3316694'] Same process? Go ask to hit em on a lie board as you are interested in em. Find out which colour code or lie angle you are and order said set online after walking out of shop "still not sure if its worth replacing your trusty gamers because you aren't sold yet" [/quote] I tried that at one place and the guy 1. was writing down stuff that didn't make sense (like a "code" between him and Ping; for example for length I saw he just wrote down "12") and 2. he said, "well I will just keep the fitting chart on file for you if you do
  10. I guess I should clarify....I want to buy a NEW set of S56s and while I know everything else in terms of fitting I just want to make sure I know the right lie angle or color code I should order. I want to order these from a certain online discount shop and all the fitters around me charge a fee to fit which is refundable if you order from them but I am saving $100+ going through this online discount shop as opposed to them.
  11. I have a Droid and while a great phone and has some very good GPS golf maps the battery life is awful. If I am running the Skydroid golf app the entire round (and this isn't pulling it out for every shot) and it lasts >4.5 hours I am close to out of battery life. I don't have an iPhone so can't comment on if it is the same battery problem but the droid's battery sucks.
  12. Does anyone know how to fit yourself for lie angle? I know everything else but am not positive about my lie angle. My current set, I believe is 1.5* upright but my swing has, in my opinion, flattened a bit since I was fitted for those 8 years ago. I know the fitters use the tape on the sole of the club and have you hit on to the black board but was wondering if there was any way to do this on my own as every fitter either charges me to be fit or offers a refundable fee as long as I buy from them (which I understand but can get this set of irons over $100 cheaper from an online discount store).
  13. So here is my predicament. There are no Ping AFS Carts with the LH S56 head anywhere near me (within 60 miles which is the max. radius you can search on Ping's site). I have had the chance to hit these into a net and also hit them on a range a month or two ago while I was still in school ~1,000 miles from where I am spending the summer. I would like to now get fit and order these ASAP, however, only one place has them and it is a shop where I can only hit into a net. I would prefer to see the flight with the different shafts and flexes before buying. Another outdoor range said they could fit
  14. I didn't really like the NTS grips much, to be honest. I had one on my Rapture that I removed after 1 range session.

In fact, the only midsize grips I have been told I can put on them are the Ping grips that all feel like they will fly out of my hand. Now I will have to order some random grip and just have it removed upon receiving my clubs and pay another $64 for new grips.

  17. [quote name='malasuerte' timestamp='1307664140' post='3296670'] Just call Discount Dans and you will be getting the best possible price! [/quote] Is Discount Dan's legit? Their prices seem almost too good to be true to be honest.
  18. [quote name='RJRJRJ' timestamp='1307663914' post='3296654'] Subtract $112.38. [/quote] I have already been quoted much lower than that by the first 2 shops I have gotten price quotes from.
  19. [quote name='malasuerte' timestamp='1307655695' post='3296352'] In great condition...$500 +/- $50. I paid a little more than that with Tour Spec S300s for the shaft and Iomic grips. [/quote] Thanks but I am talking brand new.
  20. I currently have a Ping K56 bag but feel like my clubs don't all fit in it correctly since I just switched to Winn jumbo grips. Does the Voyage have more room than the K56 in terms of the top? Thanks.
  21. How much should I be looking to spend on a set of Ping S56 4-PW with nothing upgraded? I know the retail price everywhere for 3-PW is $899 at the moment but how much should dropping the 3 iron save me?
  22. Made the drive today without calling ahead as I asked Ping if their AFS Carts had a LH S56 head which they said there was one blue dot in there. I got to the range to, unfortunately, find that the AFS cart they had there did not have any LH S56 heads which was very disappointing. I did hit the I15s which were alright but they just felt kinda muted. They did say they will call the local Ping rep and try to get a black dot, red dot and blue dot out there next week sometime. I want to order new irons ASAP and think the S56s would be perfect for me but if I can't at least hit them soon I will prob
  23. Any one? I will probably just call them tomorrow morning before I plan on leaving but any input here would be appreciated. Thanks.
  24. Hey guys, I am a left handed player looking at Ping S56s. The few golf and pro shops near me only have the Iron Cart and not the AFS Cart. However, about a 30 mile drive and I can get to a pro shop with the AFS Cart. My question is does the AFS Cart have any LEFT HANDED AFS heads? I would just like to know before making the drive. Thanks.
