Since I fall into "mid swing speed" player, I wonder what ball combination would yield the best results (distance, consistency and forgiveness) with Max 10k driver.  

I would highly recommend Ballnamic if you have not used the service before. This is its exact purpose. It will point you to the absolute best ball for your game. If you have access to launch monitor data, its a no-brainer.

Out of curiosity, what is considered "mid speed" these days. I'm 100-105. With so many golfers nowadays swinging so fast, is that mid?

I swing driver 105 and I love the way the Srixon q star tour performs. Less spin around the green then a prov or z star but great flight and performance.

I used Ballnamic.  It recommended the Bridgestone BX for me.  The BX was 10 yards shorter on drives and 5 yards shorter on full iron shots than the balls I normally play, the BRX and the AVX, plus it was less accurate.

 

Ballnamic turned out to be a waste of time and money for me.

I've been playing Pro V for the last few years, and switched to Tour Speed this year. I'm liking it.

That's too bad. I would question the data you put into it. Was it launch monitor data or did you just put in all your typical distances?

 

For me it was incredibly helpful. I gained distance and control and won my club championship the week after I put my new ball in play.

I'm glad that it worked out for you.  Sounds like you had been using the wrong ball for quite some time, then, so it's great that you were able to find the best ball for you.  As with any estimation process/algorithm, the most likely solution usually fits 80%-90% of the situations.  There will always be outliers.  I guess I was one of the outliers.

 

Through trial and error, hitting a lot of different balls over time, I've been able to determine that balls with around an 80 compression work best for me.  Hence, my getting the best results out of playing the BRX and the AVX.  I knew that going into using Ballnamic, but I was curious to see what it recommended so I paid the $40 and gave it a try.  It didn't work out for me.  C'est la vie.

I hesitate to describe a driver as "like cheating" or "point and shoot", but I'll be damned if I didn't neck 2 drives last night at league with the G430 10K that ended up in the fairway with very minimal distance loss. Excited to put it through it's paces with some different shaft combos !

I feel like we're all saying the same thing, but it's true!! I've hit balls that I know would've hooked off the planet with my last two Cobra LS heads, and they end up in first cut. It's insane.

Just back from playing with my 430 10k, had the 430 tip put on a tour issue Blueboard 53x I had begging for some game time … all I can say is “oh my goodness”

 

high flat bombs all day long 

 

this head is VERY shaft dependent in my opinion … I’ve also tried a green smoke 70tx, Diamana zf50 tx and zf60x

Couldn't hit it to save my life with the Tour 2.0 Black. Put it on an OG Ventus Blue and it's ridiculously good.

I couldn't stand the hype, Picked up a 10K on Monday,  My local Edwin Watts had one with a Tour 2.0 65 S on a 90 day return, looked like it was hit about 10 times, $100 off MSRP, had to jump on it. 

 

I  just have a few range sessions so far, will get on the course tomorrow if the weather holds up.   I set mine flat -1 degree, so far on the range I have gotten what I wanted, straight to falling right fades.  Hit a few hooks with a really bad swing, but mostly when I try to hook it, it just goes straight.   Hard to tell on the range, but distance seemed good and very consistent, same with trajectory, just seems so easy to hit. I have loved my Srixon driver most of the time, and before it I  played a 410 LST  and then 425 LST heads over the past several years until I got the Srixon last year.

For sure. Definitely subjective, but I love the sound. Sound is why I haven't tested PING in awhile. My buddy has a 425 and it's ear shattering. I love the 10K, but I've had playing partners comment about it.

Subjective like Led Zeppelin versus Nickelback.  
 

Most of what I've heard is just tolerance to the sound of the 10K driver. "It's straight so I just tried to ignore the sound."

I don’t think it sounds bad at all.  Definitely louder than my old 430 LST, but I think it be very average in sound.  It has a “lively” sound in my opinion.  Not harsh.

Just purchased! Ironically it recommends the ProV1 which is what I'm gaming.

 

How do you enter launch monitor data? All the options I'm seeing are just low/medium/high etc.

There should be an option for “I know my launch conditions” which gives you more options when entering Driver and 7i data:
