I’m not a fan of the backswing head noise of my 430 max … anyone else ?

I had the same issue but determined it was caused by my Mitsubishi Vanquish.  Drove me nuts.  I sold the shaft and installed a Ventus Blue TR and the noise stopped.  Try a different shaft if you haven’t already.

Because fairways and hybrids are substantially smaller and don’t benefit nearly as much aerodynamically from the turbulators as the drivers do.  Never understood why they had them on the fairways and hybrids to begin with.  Maybe just a continuous look across the line.

That’s interesting. Continuity across the line makes a lot of sense why they would put them on, and it sounds like they don’t have a negative impact on the fairways, just a minimal benefit, so it’s still curious why they would take them off breaking that continuity. It seems like they had a good reason for making the change.

They took them off because all things being equal in performance, a lot of people don't want turbulators.

Yes, I attend worship regularly. The Pinguin's sermons are memorizing, if not hypnotic. Everybody attended in the late '80s, early '90s. Seen followers come and go over the years - seen a few on multiple occasions, it's some formal exotica to them. O dare them bring that filth to the Guin.

I’ve been loving my LST because of the amazing combination of low spin, distance, and forgiveness, but there’s one thing that’ll get me looking hard at the 10K…

 

… and this will get me raked over the coals with some of you…

 

… but I hope this thing is as loud as a trash can getting thrown around by a pissed off garbage man. I miss that feedback from their pre-G430 drivers. 
 

There, I said it. 

that... makes one of us!

I'm not experiencing the backswing noise issue - but then again I’m deaf.

In that case, Ping is the perfect driver for you! 
 

🤣

 

 

*My ears are still ringing after hitting ~5 balls with a G410 MAX a couple years ago 😣

 

**sorry Ping guys! I couldn’t resist and, I’m not wrong 🤷🏼‍♂️😊☮️

Looks great except for the part that matters most -- the crown. It's a busy mess. Ping still not willing to admit the turbulators do nothing and look cheap.

Ping is the only true engineering company in the golf business

😂 This will come as a surprise to the teams of engineers employed by literally every other OEM. (Sorry but you're just reciting Ping's PR).

 

Anyway, Ping already tipped their hand on turbulators when they pulled them from their fairway wood and hybrid lines. And they'll be gone from drivers, too, eventually.

 

Look at all the head-to-head videos online. Ping isn't beating competitors on clubhead speed, and if they were, other companies would be introducing their own (non-patent-infringing) versions.

 

Turbulators are about marketing and aesthetics far more than performance. Do that have an impact on head speed? I doubt it, but if so, it's so minuscule as to be imperceptible in terms of outcomes.

Turbulator Research Paper

 

According to this research paper, turbulators are all about performance not marketing or aesthetics. While a 1 mph gain over the same club head without turbulators isn’t earth shattering, these small gains do add up.

Well my 430 max was traded in on the weekend for a Ping DLX tour bag and 2 dozen balls

 

so now I’ve bought and returned the 410, 425 and 430 … nothing can touch the 400lst combo in my sig ,,, or even my 400max with ZF60x combo… feel, performance and distance 

 

I need a backup 400LST

I sold my LST to a buddy with the anticipation of trying out the 10K. If Champ can make it work, I’m sure there’s a combo for me.

Tuff to beat a well fitted driver....nowadays. 400 are no joke IMO - legendary even considering the play it still commands, on multiple tours.
