  1. I asked PXG the exact same question about 6 weeks ago. I was told the highest the swingweight could get up to was about C9. The 0311XP with all the little bolts allowed more flexibility and they could get them up to D2 with that shaft.
  2. I was told early on that I should play the most forgiving irons I could stand to look at. Regardless of how low my handicap got I've never had a problem with the looks of anything I could hit well.
  3. In case anyone is swingweight sensitive (I'm guilty!) ... The standard 0211DC swingweight is C9, which makes it hard for me to feel the head. The 0311 XP can be made heavier because of all the little screws. That's a decision maker for me ...

  5. I have NOT done this ... but I thought about it. What I thought I would do is have standard lofts on the i210 and power lofts on the G425 and have a 7 iron from each model. 4.5 degrees of loft between them. My best guess was about 12 yards carry difference. Despite all this thinking I'm still playing G25s.
  6. They aren't perfect but I can get a little better fit with Under Armour. Snug , but stretchy. Mine are the Match Play, but from a couple years ago (in case they change over the years)
  7. If the majority of your shots are clean and heading where you want then the bad ones might just be poor swings. I know it always take me longer to make any swing tweaks permanent than I think it should. I'd just caution you to make sure you feel your swing changes have completely taken hold before altering your equipment. I suppose you could get just one club that is more upright and practice with it to see what you think of that ball flight. There are various ways of checking lies such as suggested here that are quite good, but I always think ball flight is the most important factor to monitor. Good luck!
  8. Are you missing shots to the right?
  9. It is intriguing to me, too ... but at this point it is iOS (Apple) only. Sucks for me.

    My guess would be really spinny, including off the driver.
  11. Let's say I have an 80 yard shot with a pin tucked tight over a bunker. If I hit my pitching wedge 125 with a full swing I might be able to hit it 80 yards, but it is asking a lot more to hit it high with plenty of spin from 80 yards. On the other hand my LW provides a high spinning shot of about 80 yards with just a smooth full swing. I'm much more likely to hit that close. That's my logic anyway.
  12. Bill, my old friend ... I have Recoil 110s in my 4-9 and Dynamic Gold in all 4 wedges. I have always been amazed that I find no difficulty going from one to the other seamlessly. Same setup for almost 8 years now. Hope that Wisconsin winter is treating you well. - Lee
  13. I could play either ball, but I have more confidence with the BXS in the wind. I've always felt Bridgestone balls handle wind better even going back to the Precept days.
  14. The arthritis in my hands has found graphite shafts extremely beneficial compared to the DGX100. I call that a real benefit. Your mileage may vary.
  15. Gosh Tom 48 I'm sorry you had such a poor experience with Ping. My experience on a similar issue is so drastically different than yours that I felt like I ought to tell it. I have custom order UST Recoil Prototype shafts on my Ping irons and I noticed that splintering near the hosel you mentioned. Ping insisted I send the entire set back to them, and I received them back with all new shafts and grips ... no charge. They have done this twice now, the most recent was just last year. And mine are older than yours ... G25s. I did go thru my local Ping account where I had purchased them and didn't speak with Ping directly ... Maybe that relationship matters? IDK, but I thought Ping's service was far beyond what I could reasonably expect from any club company. Again, I'm sorry your experience is such an unhappy one. Best of luck in the future. - Lee
  16. They are not cheap, but I found UST Recoil Prototype shafts to perform relatively similar to DG shafts in the 115 gram weight. The shock dampening of that graphite is a huge difference from steel. I switched from DGX100 7 years ago and my hands are much happier.
  17. I'm no expert but I believe the non-pro is counterbalanced also. And how it impacts you might depend on how sensitive you are to swingweight. I tend to lose head awareness when the swingweight gets too low, and counterbalancing lowers it some. Just a couple points makes a difference to me, which I think proves just what head cases most of us are.
  18. Just a random thought, but isn't the Tensei Orange counterbalanced? I don't believe the Ping Tour is. That could make a difference.
  19. I'm typing this from a chrome browser. No issues here.
