G425 Order Possibilities

So quick question that hopefully someone will know the answer to as I have never felt the need to request such an order until now. As I think everyone is aware, when ordering a club it's easy to specify swing weight, club length, lie angle, or many other non standard options. This is the point of custom orders after all. But does anyone know, does ping have the ability to accept an order that specified loft on a driver being at the lower end of the tolerances? For example say pings 9° drivers met tolerances between 8.25° and 9.75°, if I asked for it, could they build my club with that lower lofted version, even though they are all classified as "9°". Only reason I ask is, and I briefly touched on this in another thread where I was looking for advice on a new driver, I hit the G425 max really straight. By this I mean, I love how anti left you can make it with the weight and lie angle. But, I hit the club high. Touch too high for my liking. Lofting down with the adaptor helps, but it then becomes too fade bias for me, even when I dial back other adjustments. I think I could have a real winner with a low lofted g425, whilst I would also move away from the counterbalanced shafts and heavy head weight to be able to move the club just that little bit quicker. Note: I've tried on a launch monitor and the heavy weight of the pings takes my ss down a few mph and makes it just that little bit shorter than other brands offerings. Hopefully all this made sense, and someone out there knows the answer to this. If not, I am going to try to get into contact with ping directly and I'll update everyone with the answer if it's not already provided. Might be a few days though as getting ahold of ping is a task nowadays, as they have shortened customer service hours and their hours are during my busiest work hours where it's hard to find time to call them and get put on hold for 30 minutes.

Yes you can request a digitally lofted head, they will try to get as close to your specified loft as possible.  There may be a small fee for this service but I don’t have any details on that as I’ve never ordered one this way.

Thanks. And for anyone else wondering, all this is correct. Finally got a hold of ping and they can send the order to their "tour" department with an exact loft and they will match as close as they can. Normally it's within +/- 1° of the stated loft, so can request a 9° head from 8-10. He also said there is a fee involved but couldn't tell me that. Told me I'd have to get that price from a retailer. If I go this route I can update what that fee was for me anyway. Only big problem with this is the extra time. He said normally it adds at least a week to the build time, and as most know they already have ridiculous lead times, so this seems to be the biggest down side to doing this.

: Digitally lofted at 10.5

: Face square at neutral setting

: With the G410 and 425 I've asked for the SW to be at D2

: Name etched on club (this is me being a diva 😉 

they've always been bang on.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
