Driver Loft Question

Hey all, 

Quick question for you. I discovered this dollar driver club online and am interested in renting a Ping G410 Plus driver. I have demoed it before and really enjoyed it. My current driver is a Ping G25 10.5 set to the neutral position. My natural shot shape is a fade. My question is: should I order a 9 degree G410 Plus and turn it up to 10.5 so that it closes the face a bit and neutralizes my ball flight or should I order the 10.5 and play with it in the draw position?

I would say you should try both... I know a cop-out.

BTW - please post a link to the dollar driver club. I'd be interested in checking it out.

How well do you hit the G25 at 10.5*? Why would you want to buy and turn a 9* to a 10.5* when you can just buy a 10.5* driver? Or are you just looking to buy a new driver?

Get the 10.5 Ping 410 Plus and play it in the draw position and/or the 10.5 410 SFT.

And get lessons to fix your fade...seems like you want to hit a straight shot.

I don't hit the G25 particularly well. I don't necessarily want to dramatically change my ball flight. I like the left to right movement, however I do agree with you on neutralizing it a bit so it doesn't move as much. I was just curious about the 10.5 vs the 9.0 degree. I think a loft of 10.5 which may actually suit my swing speed, but if I decided to close the face a bit I would have to loft it up, which in turn would no longer suit my swing because the loft would be too high.

I was thinking it could be smarter to get the 9 degree and loft it up to 10.5 because I would also be closing the face down a bit. So, a more closed face + 10.5 loft would help my left to right movement a bit and also be the correct loft. Maybe?

Get the 10.5 ( if it isn’t too late).  The G25 is notorious for a high ball flight.  I had one, it’s true.

The G40 doesn’t launch as high so stick with the same 10.5 degree and use the moveable weight set to the heel to promote a draw.
