  1. Neither did I, I asked the same question to Ping...hope you straighten out your issue!
  2. The adapter weighs 3ish grams, the head weight specs on the ping site include the adapter weight. So based on that I would think your Max head weight is standard
  3. I love that set up...with the Ventus Red too...very cool
  4. What were you spinning the SIM prior to switching to the LST? And I assume you added 10g of hotmelt and reduced the weight in the back? Otherwise it would one heavy mofo!
  5. Exactly the comments that peaked my interest! Similar spin but you chose the LST, I also need to hit more fairways, I've heard the opposite opinion a bunch about the max being super straight...which leads me to believe the LST performs best for higher speed players, hence mostly every tour player swapping to the LST this year. Think the LST is likely the direction I will take!
  6. Couldn't agree more about the SIM, great driver, on the shaft front I have a bunch to test including a Ventus Black 6X which I assume will be a winner based on the minor testing I have done to date. Ultimately, I have the distance and speed, I want / need to hit more fairways which is why I am going in the direction of Ping. I think I have always know the answer to this being the LST, your opinion pretty much reaffirmed that! I will test the TSi3 later on this spring/ summer but I need a gamer until then, I mean I could game the G410 LST I have in the meantime...but new s*** is cool.
  7. I know there are a lot of posts discussing the G425 driver line up but none specific to high speed players. For those high speed players that have tested both the G425 Max and LST, beside the sound what did you like best? I’ve read some reports of the Max having similar spin numbers to the LST, I know this will vary from player to player but I’d love to hear your experience. Also heard lots about lowering the spin with 10g of forward hotmelt and a reduction of the back weight to 17g, seems like a hassle but something I would be willing to listen to...or is the LST just good enough. I prefer the look of the Max at address, something about it just makes me feel like I can bomb it. I know changing the MOI via hotmelt will change the forgiveness a bit...anyways I digress. A little background, I pretty much live at 115 MPH on the course (118-120 going about 95%) with a fairly low AoA 0 to +2. Good iron player, hit driver well but my launch is typically on the low 9-11 which typically has my spin around the 2500-2600 mark in my SIM 9* with Tour AD IZ 6X tipped 1”. Left is my miss...hence the transition to Ping...love the adjustability and stability. Live in Ontario, golf is currently illegal due to a stay at home order due to f*cking COVID again...I would love to test myself...but I can’t at the moment...help me WRXers!
  8. Sim Ti and it’s not even close for me
  9. Wow that’s a bad a** scale!
