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.

 

That’s what I was curious about, thanks. With an already heavy head I was wondering if adding weight to adjust swingweight after shortening a shaft worked for others.

For me, the Tour 2.0 Chrome has much better feel than any of the Ventus shafts. It also has qualitatively more distance for me, based on where I am at on course with it vs the 2024 Ventus blue. I'm hoping by some amount of tipping, I can get rid of the twice a round snap hook I had when gaming the Tour 2.0 Chrome. Might be user error, but had 0 snap hooks with the 2024 Ventus in the one round i have played with it. 

 

I've also noticed i trend towards hitting draws with the Tour 2.0 Chrome and fades with the Ventus

 

I'd love an update on how you're getting on - I'm considering testing the Ventus as I'm still not seeing as tight dispersion as I'd like.

Will installing a lighter weight make these heads less forgiving?  I will be testing a ventus tr shaft in this tomorrow. It will play at 45.5 in. I installed the 22 gram weight out of my g430 lst in and it brings it in at d.3.

One of the main ways you increase MOI in a driver (or even a putter) is to push the max amount of weight as far away as you can from the CG. Yes, by removing weight, you will reduce the MOI of the driver. Whether that actually makes a tangible difference for you relative to the gains you make from a lighter driver, different shaft loading, etc is a whole different question! 😁

Decided to give one a go with the Chrome 2.0 shaft. I’ve got a Ventus Blue ready to go if I don’t like it, but after reading around I think it should be nice for me.

Played again yesterday with the 9* and OG Ventus Blue 6S. Incredible. It was the second round where my worst drives ended up in the first cut. That's very, very rare for me. I've now played 54 holes without losing a ball. Honestly don't think I've ever done that. I love this driver


ever try Ventus black to compare? I’m wondering if maybe the blue in general is a better pairing for this head.

I haven't, but I've thought about it. The shop near me only has the black tr, though. From what I've read that shaft is probably too stout for me. I'd love to try it with an OG Black 6S if I could get my hands on one.

It's less about a shaft being a "better pairing for this head", and more about the shaft being a "better pairing for your swing".  

This.  Greater success can be had fitting the shaft first, then the driver or whatever head.  Doing the opposite can work, but it is usually more expensive in the long run.

Played around with the 25g weight at the range today and it was a much tighter dispersion for me. Going to give it a whirl with the Tour Chrome 2.0 and see how it goes on course tomorrow. It's amazing how the different shafts affect whether head weight adjustments are noticeable or not.

That was how my fitter approached it. We spent the first part of the session dialing in the shaft profile.  He then had me hit every head with the optimum shaft. Once we got a head, we tried a few more shafts in the profile to be sure it was the best fit.  

 

In my case, I wasn't crazy about the high price and he suggested an alternate that was less expensive that he felt would give very similar results.

That's actually a frustrating part of Ping for me. I'm a bit on the borderline of being able to play my shaft in an X, and I swing Ping heads so noticeably slower that it becomes a problem. 

 

You'd think just dropping the flex to a stiff would even everything out but it never works out that way.

Ya I don’t really understand when people infer that a shaft is somehow good or bad for a certain head. It is good or bad for your swing. 
 

I also have a 10k with black tr. it is great

I just don't think there's absolutes either way. I've used shafts that work better for me with different heads. For instance Ventus Blue works great for me with the 10K head, but for some of my previous heads that were LS models Ventus Red worked better. Each person is specific. I don't think there's a right or wrong way to go about fitting.

Anyone else experiencing delays? I was told June 15th for the 9 degree head 😔

My local pro shop said the 9* is flying off the shelves and he expects them to be back ordered. That being said, there's still plenty out there in stock at the big box chains.

Think that’s pretty logical for heads with different characteristics . A lower launching and spinning head (ie anything LS) paired with a moderate shaft would possibly have similar dynamics to a more neutral head with a lower spinning and launching shaft , all else equal( though often people swing different shafts differently). 
 

But I don’t really think there are magic combos where a certain shaft works better with certain heads. So imo someone else who had a ventus black work with a 10k doesn’t really mean it will or will not work for you.

Definitely agree. I misunderstood. Certainly not magic combos that work universally. Absolutely specific to the individual.

There are definitely wrong ways to go about fittings.

 

Yes, some shafts work better with some heads for the individual.  Your ability to go from Ventus Red to Blue means you are less sensitive to the differences in those two profiles, and can adapt to the different head characteristics with a different shaft.  Others can be more sensitive, and cannot switch between the two.

Yup.  This is easy to get lost on the forums and within the golf world.  Shafts and heads have splashy colors, and some consumers want to buy them based on aesthetics/brand/colors versus actual fitted performance.  Take away ego, color matching, and/or preconceived notions, and it can be easier to be properly fit.

 

As a caveat, it can be a slippery slope where people try to eke out a few hundred RPMs of spin by over analyzing their fit or not being properly fit in the first place.  It helps to have an open mind and recognize a holistic approach to a proper fitting.  Now finding a good fitter is a separate conversation.

 

Back to the topic, it is fun seeing a wide range of golfers having success with the 10K.

Great first round with the 10K and the 25g weight with the Tour Chrome 2.0 in stiff. I think this is my gamer combo going forward (mainly just to let it settle in). I wasn't seeing any two way misses any more, and the miss was a pull hook, which is me, not the club.

 

If anyone else is struggling with inconsistency in dispersion sometimes, I would definitely think about trying a lighter headweight. Way cheaper than going with a new shaft.

Jumped on the bandwagon. Tested the 9* head with both a project X red and blue. Up against my Paradym TD with the shaft I was fitted for…it fell short by quite a bit. No LM data, but visually weaker flight. 
 

THEN decided to bite the bullet, pull the Cally tip, and throw a ping tip on my AD XC 7x.  Added a little lead tape to get to my preferred SW.

 

One range session only. 72* and no wind at 925’ elevation…holy living hell. CANNOT WAIT to get it on the actual course. Was picking out limbs of specific trees vs trying to keep it between trees. Just flat, high flight that never seemed to come down. Need to get my buddy to get me on their outdoor trackman range to get real numbers.

 

Really excited about the tee ball for the first time in a LONG time.
