  1. 1. New driver....Ping G10 or Callaway HyperX

    • Callaway HyperX

Looking around for a new driver and 3Wood.

I want to gain a higher trajectory than with my current set up as well as adding more forgiveness.

I'm evaluating the Ping G10 and the Callaway HyperX. Most likely going with at 10 degree driver and 15 degree 3 wood.

Wondering what the pros and cons of each model is?

Going to be doing something within the next month, I hope.

I have tried both of these drivers. Both are good. I prefer the Hyper X because it is slightly longer for me and has a great feel through the ball- solid, without being too heavy. The Ping just seems a little whippy to me. I also prefer the sound of the Callaway.

I have not tried the fairway woods in these models.

Happy hunting!

Ive hit both on demo days. I didnt like the hyper-x at all. At all. The g10 with a UST V2 shaft is a dyamite club, i really enjoyed hitting that one. But i can reason spending 300 bucks on a club ill only use 8-10 times a round.

You need to try out both clubs in the loft and with the shaft you need. Only by trying out these clubs can you derive anything that resembles information neccessary on which to make a decision.

I can tell you that for me, the Hyper X is one of the best drivers, if not the best driver I've ever hit. No, wait, I can tell you that the Hyper X driver is the best I've hit; and the emphasis is on the I.[/ I] I came to that conclusion after hitting several different drivers on a launch monitor. But what works for my swing and my swing speed may not work for you. Don't take my word on the performance of a driver, try several out for yourself side by side and see empirically what works best for you.

Good luck.

Thanks for the opinions....keep them coming in.

I'm going to have to step up the timeline as the head of my driver came loose today....shaft is broken in the hosel.

Stopped off at a store this morning and have them patching up my old driver.


I test hit a HyperX 10 degree stiff and a G10 10.5 degree with the V2 HL stiff. Both felt and sounded great. I think the ball may be a tad hotter coming off the HyperX....but that is hard to tell in the conditions I was hitting under.

The PING G10 seemed to really fit my swing. I love the V2hl shaft in it.

I'm leaning in favor of the G10 after hitting them both.

    • I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding. Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball. IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways. Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances. I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together. I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well. Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁
    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
