Re: PING opinionsI have the PING G10, Ping G5, and used to use: their wedges (Ping Tour), Ping G5 driver, and putter (g5i anser).
I liked all of their clubs, and still do. My hybrid is almost non-replacable. I love that thing. It's one of the few clubs I can easily manuever with a draw/fade, low/high. It also has nice forgiveness. The driver is workable as well, I enjoy hitting the high cut when I can't get my normal ball flight (draw/ sometimes develops into a snap hook, LOL!) into play. The G10 is by far the best Ping club I've ever touched. I've had it for over a year now, and the thing I noticed most was it's amazing forgiveness. Many times I've hit the ball of the heel or toe of the clubface, but my playing partners hear the sound and see the ball flight and think I've caught it flush. Do I lose some distance? Yeah, of course, but the ball still went pretty darn straight with not too much distance loss...that was the major thing that stuck out to me. As far as the wedges and putter goes, the wedges were probably the only thing I never LOVED from Ping. They were solid wedges don't get me wrong, but I prefer the feel of the Titleist vokey's, or the Nike SV Tour's over the Ping Wedges. I was always a pretty solid putter, especially short putting with the Ping g5i anser. That putter is GREAT for making a simple, short compact stroke on 3-7 footers. I ended up struggling with it a little bit, and I knew my Dad loved the putter and needed a new one, so I gave it to him. He's been using it for a little over a year and it may be his favorite club.
Next driver I get I will certainly consider Ping's newest line of Drivers and hybrids...Right now, I've never really even considered getting rid of my G5 hybrid or G10 driver.
