Ping dampening shafts

Recommended Posts

For those of you that carry Ping irons in the bag do you have the dampening system in in your shafts. I guess it is an extra $5 per shaft.

No never have

I don't think I do. What's it supposed to do?

According to PING

What ping irons are you gaming?

S55's and i25's currently but in all the PING irons I've had I've never had the cushion inserts put in. Some guys like them.

I was not even aware of this option until now.

Ping has had the option for a long time... ;-)

I heard some guys talking about buying them and installing them in their shafts but I didn't know it had anything to do with Ping.

I suppose you could install them on any iron whether it was a Ping or not?

I am sure. I just don't pay much attention to these things. :D

I think it use to be more popular, PING doesn't promote as much either.

You sure can. Of course, it doesn't have to be Ping's proprietary system either - Sensicore has been around for even longer. Surprised nobody has heard of either...

That conversation I heard between the guys that were installing them may have been about the Sensicore (and probably was). I didn't hear them mention the name.

Yep, it dampened the vibration/shock from smacking the mat to hard..lol Seriously, on off hits it did help. Funny thing was, I didn't order the sensicore, just came with my set of clubs.

Shock dampeners first became popular among senior golfers. Now, many seniors use graphite shafts in their irons and wedges, which makes Cushin and Sensicore inserts less necessary.

Also, some people who build their own clubs use strands of insulation as homemade Sensicore. Rumors persist, however, about Sensicore or the insulation strands causing rusting within shafts, as they absorb moisture.

Here's a thread from last year on "homemade" Sensicore, including a suggested "no rust" solution:
