Ping G410 Head and Shaft Question

Hello all... 

I recently tried out the Ping G410 Plus Driver from Global Golf's UTRY program. It is the most forgiving driver I have ever hit by far. I am interested in acquiring one. I see that you can buy the heads separate from the shafts new on ebay. My question is this: If I bought just the head on Ebay does the shaft that I put onto it come with the hosel? I want to buy the head and then take it to a local fitter and have them fit me into the proper shaft. I just didn't know whether the head / hosel / shaft were all separate things or which comes with what.

When it comes to eBay it's the wild west. You just have to read the description really closely and hope that you're not buying a fake. Usually sellers will make it pretty obvious whether the hosel adapter is included and of course you can alway send them a question about it.

Right but I guess my question is that are they all three different items that could potentially come separately (the head / hosel / shaft). I have never switched shafts on a club before so I don't know much about it.

Really depends on who is selling it. OEMs don't usually like to sell the heads by themselves, so I can't say how it will come. If you bought it from Ping they would be selling the whole club (head, adapter, and shaft). At best you might be able to get it without the grip on. Again you have to be careful who you buy from, but you can find every combination on eBay, heads with adapter included or not, shafts with adapters, pre cut and gripped, or just raw shafts. Did I answer your question?

Yea I think so. I would imagine this is just the head only and nothing else. So I imagine if I brought just a head into some place like club champion I’m assuming they would have the adaptors along with the shafts.

They will, most likely will charge you $30-$40 for the adapter which is expensive but pretty much all the adapters are needlessly expensive no matter where you buy them. I would stay away from the generic adapters you might see on eBay or Amazon. Hear a lot of issues with them.

Ok I gotcha. It seems like it may not even be worth it buying the head separately. I thought if I got the head for 330 and the full price is normally 500 I’d be able to make a better deal but it looks like one of the shafts that come with the driver with no up charge when sold separately is 200 by itself. So right there it would already be cheaper to just get the driver with the shaft.

You might just want to go and do a fitting before and see what shaft comes out on top. Then you can either go with whatever shaft works "best" if it's aftermarket or find the most similar to it from the stock options as a more economical option.

    • Hi All! I started really making an effort to improve my game this summer. Took a couple of lessons and really started to make good contact with the irons and stop pulling the ball. Getting confident there. Now, I'm having a crazy issue with the driver.  The last time I was hitting my driver straight-ish, I had the ball way farther back in my stance than seemed natural for a driver, basically in the middle of my stance. The ball would be low but for the most part straight. I moved the ball forward in my stance, and all hell has broken loose. Now every shot with the driver is a hard, low-arcing hook that starts way left and stays way left. My swing with the driver doesn't feel comfortable at all. I'm going to take another lesson and ask about it, but I was wondering if any of you had had a similar experience. Any advice would be appreciated.
    • Actually he did. They have two of the booths with the screens that show your ball flight and all the numbers they use. He had some other electronic device he was using behind me. This place is a really nice golf course with 27 holes, plus a really nice practice facility. They are supposed to be the best in Wisconsin for club fitting. It took me all day to get there, get this done and drive back. I sure do hope it works out!
    • At least the guy in the store didn't tell you that you were standing too close to the ball after you hit it.  Old joke.
    • I have played Ping GI (GMax) for the past three years. I also start my irons at 6i. I made sure they were a good fit at the time I bought them.  Mine are Ping, red, senior shaft.  I, too, had some difficult getting used to those shafts. I had used steel shafts for decades. It took a while of practicing my 6i,7i and 9i, one club at a time  My coach tore down my swing with these clubs to the basics to get to the level of confidence I have now. We videoed everything, including grip for each club.  We discussed the target range and loft of each clubs.  While you are tending, I think, to see these clubs as a "set", I was told to treat these as individual clubs only.   I have also used tape and spray to mark just about every practice shot I took.  And for a while I need every shot to look for patterns (I tend to hit more towards the toe.) After I examined the markings, the pattern of mis-hits was clear and that gave my coach a clear view of what needed correction. As well, we took it down to position of the face of the club at every point of the swing. We slowed down the swing until I felt comfortable with it. Finally, everything was combined into the swing I now use. Finally, we looked at any changes I might make for each of the clubs.  It took about a month of this kind of steady practice.  Now I am happy with the shots around 90% of the time. Like you, I do choke up a bit on these clubs more than my 3 hybrids.  As many have said, there could be many reasons these are not working for you. I suggest making a video and posting it on line here at TST.  
    • I know I still have a long, long way to go but this is my before swing:   Cutting way across the ball, weak slices, shanks, over the top, out to in - you name it horrible, horrible. Then after one evolvr lesson 6 days later:    Still not pretty at all, but my instructor has got my grip stronger (with my right hand at least, still working on my left hand) and I've got a sensation of trying to leave the club face more closed throughout the swing and bowing the lead wrist more, even though I'm not in reality. Ive had dramatic improvements in ball flight. Hitting a mix of straight shots, draws and occasional hooks now, and all but eliminated slicing, Gained a lot of distance too. It's turned things around for me to be honest. Now I am working on strengthening the grip with the left hand, turning out my left foot and angling my neck to match my shoulders, as per my instructors advice. Any further suggestions welcomed. Im pretty sure Im flipping the club a lot and adding loft.
