Ping G10 driver w/ TFC 129D thoughts on this high torque shaft

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I was looking at this driver. I wasn't realy too impressed with the shaft options so I went to pings site to get more info. This shaft in a stiff has 4.1 degrees of torque, which seems to be alot. I am only swinging at about 104 so I'm not sure if this shaft will work. Anybody have experience with this combo. .

thanks

I had a demo with one on the range - 9 deg with the TFC shaft. Felt OK to me - not as still or board like as my YS6+ is

I quite liked it.

I think the Proforce V2 will launch too high for me (esp for when I return to UK as wind will kill it) so I am getting a session on a launch monitor to fit up with either the TFC or the ProLaunch red shafts

4.1 shaft torque is high. Youll be spraying the ball all around imho. I like the lowest torque stock for any driver.

I have the G10 and I was pretty impressed with the stock shaft. With a swing speed of 104 you should be fine. Ball flight was more of a mid flight for me. My swing speed is slightly less than 104, and I didn't have any problems whatsoever. However, I am going to the V2 for a little less torque and slightly higher launch.

I had that exact shaft last year and was spraying the ball left and right after always being dead straight with my R7 TP. I got fitted and bought a Grafalloy ProLaunch Red and it's absolutely lethal. My swing speed was 106 and improved to 108 with the Red. Even with a 108 swing speed I went with the Regular Flex because of my slower tempo and really do not regret it.
Hope this helps!

Some pros play high-torque drivers. It's not entirely true at all that "high torque = spraying the ball" or that "lower torque = better."

Depends on a lot of factors, really, and personal preferences.
