Hello,

 

I'm looking forward to trying the G425 MAX and LST this week as they hit the stores for demo here in Canada. I was just curious for those of you who have already been playing these clubs and or tried them what your thoughts are on the stock shaft choices. I know the outcome will be different for everyone but going into the demo what should I be looking for and what are the pros/cons of each? 

 

Also, I've never tried Arccos grips but are they a gimmick and better off just opting for the standard gold price grips or go for the Arccos option? I'll probably be custom ordering instead of choosing off rack.

I'd go with the stock Tour shaft over the Alta shaft, the Ping Tour shaft is actually one of the better stock shafts offered, it is also a CB shaft. The Tensei Orange is solid as well, works if you want a lower flight vs the Tour shaft. The Rogue White I cannot comment on. 

 

But from your list I'd pick Tensei Orange as you don't have the Ping Tour shaft listed.

I thought the Tour shaft is low launching / lower spinning option and Tensei Orange was mid launch / mid spin option. Alta high launch / high spin.

How I launch it i found the tour a touch higher than the Orange. I'm just going off what I remember seeing testing the two shaft.

Can't comment on the shafts but I'll never go back to the pre-Arccos days (or something similar). It's not make or break since they can be added later, but if it's a factory option I'm getting them every time.

I have the tour 65 s in a 410 head and have been happy with the feel and performance. Smooth tempo, mildly aggro at top, lauches high enough in a 10.5 head to not seem like a low/low shaft and does not balloon. Spin seems reasonable, haven’t been on launch monitor for exact #s. Alta was too lightweight overall and haven’t hit the orange. Ping tour shafts have always outperformed made for alternatives from TM in my opinion. Good luck

The Ping Tour is more mid low/mid low the raw orange is mid/mid  but the Ping Tour shaft is not a CB shaft. The low/low option is the Rogue White 130.

After 15 years of a very happy relationship with my Ping Rapture 12 degree with a regular flex Mitsubishi Diamana Blueboard, I am going to get a new driver.

 

I expect to pick between the G425 Max 12 (or 10.5) degree or the 10.5 degree LST. 

That being said, I am disappointed with the stock shaft offerings. I really love the Mitsubishi Diamana Blueboard on my current driver and want something similar.

 

My swingspeed is a little under 100mph and I hit a highish trajectory with a slight draw.


Which of the Ping shaft offerings would be the closest match?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

The mid launch mid spin option is the Tensei Raw Orange 65.  The Blueboard is a mid mid type of shaft.  don't know how the torque ratings are on these shafts but that could give you a firmer or softer feel.

I really enjoyed the Rogue White, and found the AV Raw Orange to be too high launch/spin (~105mph SS). Tour 65 performs well too. Will all depend on your launch/spin profile of course, but the difference between Tensei Orange and Rogue White was pretty darn noticeable in the Max head for me.

Very similar swing speed as you. Also launch high and play a slight draw. I went for a fitting for G425. Tried Alta (launched it way too high) Tried Project X (way too stiff feeling, Tried Ping Tour(it's in my G400 now), walked out with Rogue. Took my launch angle from 18-19 to 12-13 and my spin from mid 3000's to 2,200-2,400. Such a smooth feeling shaft too. It arrives tomorrow. I can give more feedback when I put it in play this weekend.
