Even the FLAT setting comes in more upright than the Cobra?

Standard Cobra is 55.5 and PING Flat is 56.5. Standard PING is 59.5. Although the Flat is only a degree more upright, it looks like more to me. Probably (hopefully) something that I'll just get used to.

What a difference the 10K was today with my Ventus Blue. Huge difference over the stock Tour Black shaft. Extremely stable. Absolute pleasure to hit. 12 driver holes, 10 fairways and 2 first cut. I was able to hit straight shots, as well as a few draws and 2 fades. The face feels so strong at impact. There's simply no twisting.

I really want to try one of the velocore shafts sometime. There's nowhere close to me to demo one and I can't just keep buying expensive shafts to test as much as I'd like to

I totally get this. I don't have anywhere close to me to test, either. I got lucky. I grabbed mine off of here last year for $200 and took a chance. I figured if it didn't fit me, I could resell it here and just cost myself a minimal amount. It fit perfectly. It's so unbelievably stable. Tough to describe, but it just feels like the driver head doesn't move around like other shafts. For instance, I played the other day with the 10K and stock shaft because my Velocore was getting a PING tip installed, and was all over the course. Spinny shots, and wild. Today was point and shoot. Just bombs all day. It's an awesome shaft.

I 100% agree.  My Ventus Black’s tip epoxy failed last week so I did a round with the Chrome 2.0.  Night and day difference.  
 

10K and Velocore go together like peas and carrots.

I have the 9 head and it does not launch low...

Anyone playing one of these at 45”? Did you just lead tape it up? I’m playing a tour length Cobra Aerojet LS (44.5”) so swinging the G430 yesterday felt so awkward.

I buy all my clubs from JD @ JDS CLUBS. He was great pricing and can build with the best of them w/out the ego of some (if you know what I mean). He has great attention to detail and can provide any service you need ie. ratglue...

It launches in the same window as my previous heads, which have always been LS models from various brands. I went over trees a couple times yesterday to cut corners off of doglegs, and cleared them with ease.

I’m playing my 10.5° G430 10k at 45”. Alta CB R shaft. I’ve played around with different setups. Stock TV 360 grip standard 28gr weight with stock butt counter weight removed is D2. Same setup but with TV 360 lite grip D4.

I found a killer deal on 2nd Swing so purchased today. That’ll give me 60 days to test it out. 

2nd Swing just sandbagged me. I found a 10k listed and priced as a pre owned standard Max in Above Average condition (looked perfect) with a Tensei 1K Orange shaft. I have the screenshots to prove it. Well it just got delivered and it’s a standard G430 Max not the 10k. The shaft is exactly like the listing and cut to the length I requested with the new grip. It looks like they caught their mistake and swapped the 10k head for a Max head (in average condition) hoping I wouldn’t notice. 
 

I called customer service and they’re claiming that they must have uploaded the wrong head pictures. But it was on the 1K Orange shaft…. They’re going to reimburse me for everything including the customizations but that was a shady move. They should have just reached out to me and said the listing was incorrect. 
 

Anyways, I guess I’m back to the search.

Curious what kind of deal you found? I didn’t realize 2nd Swing offered a 60 guarantee on used clubs - that’s cool. I did see they are selling a 10K with a Tour AD XC for $649 and that seems pretty good given the upgraded shaft.

I put a Lin-q black in mine. After tying the 2.0 black, a GT, a vanquish and a 1k orange, the black worked best for me with the orange being a close second.  All of them 60X except the vanquish was 40X. With knowing the black was the best I started looking into the Lin-q.  From what I’ve read some say it’s a 2.0 black made with better material and has a “little” more kick.  I’ve never played a UST driver shaft, but having the Dart Vs in my blueprint S irons, it had my interest. The Lin-q might be the best feeling shaft I’ve ever played, super smooth with a nice little kick and it pairs well with the 10k head.  This shaft is very underrated and worth a try if youre looking…

I heard that too. However, it flies high and straight for me. 93-96 mph swing using ProV1x. I lowered the tee height because the face is shallow but it has been flying great. This thing makes the game easier and more fun.

The Chrome continues to be a lot longer than the RDX Red for me. I do find I hit it straighter when I "get after it" instead of trying to get steery or swing overly smoothly. Half wondering about dropping it down a degree as I do find it is launching a bit high at present (playing it on the small +).

I’m still getting used to this coming from a 430 LST which standard lie is 57*. 
 

standard on the g430 10k is 58.5*. In the flat setting, comes to 57.5*. 
 

im wondering if you can request from Ping a flatter head? Similar to lofts where Ping can digitally loft heads. 
 

any idea? Thanks

That's a great idea. Ping has the best customer service in the business. Generally if it's possible, they accommodate. I bet they would if you asked.

Has anyone tried a weight heavier then the 28gr stock weight to see what the results were?

Tried a 34 gram weight as I'm playing a 44.5 inch shaft. It felt heavy to me so I went back to the standard 28 gram weight. I did not notice much difference in terms of distance or dispersion for what it's worth.
