Ping G430 Max 10K 10.5 head w/ a word of warning


Recommended Posts

Hi guys.  One item today.

 

Extremely cheap 10K Max head.  Reason for this: the weight is epoxied in.  I over tourqued the screw on a golf trip in May and it snapped.  Being on a trip, I epoxied the screw and weight back in.  I've been playing it ever since with no issues whatsoever.  Performs exactly as a new head, other than the fact you will have to heat the weight to change it.  I never wanted to be without it so I never sent it back to Ping for a claim.

 

Head weight: 203.5 grams

10.5 degree

Headcover included

A couple of tee marks on the face, a few on the sole

No other issues that I can see

 

My word of warning: DON'T OVER TORQUE PING WEIGHTS

 

$sold shipped.  No trades, going back to the Max for more spin.  I have some shafts if you are so inclined as well.

We’re you able to get the broken piece out? It’s not in the head?

Hey guys, sorry I had to put the little guy down.  Lots of messages, getting back to them now.

The broken screw is still in the threads, and is going nowhere.  It is dead flush with the weight well floor, for lack of a better word.  So luckily that allowed the weight to go back in there with no issues.  I tried to reverse it out using one of those small reverse drill bits but it wouldn't budge.  I really must have over torqued it in there.  

 

The screw will be there forever unless someone wants to really drill it out, but that will risk debris getting inside the head.

 

But just to be clear: there is absolutely NO PIECES IN THE HEAD.  The screw is still in the thread under the weight.  The head performs as new, I just am getting too low of spin numbers with this head compared to the regular Max.
