  1. ME TOO now that it's 2019 and they just fit inside a Z24 Chevy Cavalier Conv. 1999 Obvious but wish to avoid = Mustang, Corvette, high priced and foreign (Miata fun excepted but ... no fit) Also add 0-60 about 7-8 seconds, "4 seater" convertible or at least generous sunroof, clubs w/driver in bag must fit side-side in trunk Was tipped to visit Buick ...???
  2. Ping shaft specs for 80F only give two choices SENIOR LITE that differ dramatically in torgue No less than 5 on line discount stores authorized to sell Ping clubs advertise Ladies/Women Flex G30 fairways then give NO support in what the heck that means in Ping terms. Buddy ordered what he was led to believe was G30 80F LITE after complaining there was no Ladies/Womens flex as advertised only to receive the SENIOR http://www.golfdiscount.com/ping-women-s-g30-fairway-wood?hand=15138&head;_type=15308&loft;=15309&shaft;_model=19519&flex;=18452&gclid
  3. Correction Shaft options to consider: Ping G30 5W 18d fairway (buy new replacement) a) Torque 5.5 Wt 54gr TFC 59 Distance b) Torque 5.3 Wt 51gr TFC 80F Lite c) Torque 4.3 Wt 53gr Tour 65 Reg
  4. IF these other clubs are spot-on, listed in most accurate top of list (least accurate at bottom)? 1) Ping yellow dot G15 iron set, stock steel regular (hits the bullseye!) Torque 2.0 Wt 99gr 2) Ping G30 Driver graphite Torque 5.9 Wt 53gr 3) Ping Rapture 3W 13d minidriver/fairway Torque 5.5 Wt 52gr 4) Ping G25 5W 18d fairway (trade in) Torque 3.2 Wt 63gr Shaft options to consider: Ping G30 5W 18d fairway (buy n
  5. NEVER a waste think of it as a massage that takes the kinks out of all those muscle knots that playing in water, among the trees and social distractions created on the course that is bringing gremlins into your game
  6. Thinking ironically that going to a less flex shaft on driver than irons would do the trick - this was magic for my golf buddy - presto chango, happy guy ... I know, it's backwards rationale but can't argue with results
  7. My research to date finds NOTHING on forgiveness comparison between the Ping G30 & G25 woods, particularly the 5-wood .. important since G30 is smaller .. but maybe better configured. Enough of the turbulators and distance, speed. Most reports show the fairway results almost as twins. FORGIVENESS reports would be greatly appreciated, and to put a finer point on this, please mention flex (regular preferred) and what shafts employed if not the standard stock base. Even reading between the lines, can't muster any reason yet to trade in G25 for the G30 but so much detail is miss
  8. Shorter shafts for aggressive swings Long shafts for for smooth/passive swings
  9. Standing FURTHER from ball = draw CLOSER = fade A pro @ lesson will sa y so
  10. Answer: I am 66, used to have a 15 handicap via Ping i3-O stiff graphite iron set Green Dot, Ping i3 woods stiff graph, Drivers all Ping stiff, eventually settled on G10 Two years ago, handicap faltered, so Ping fitters said Green Dot G25 reg.graph, so also got G25 woods reg.graph; at first, handicap fell -11 strokes then began to rise. Blamed it on bad weather, infrequent play but even that truth wasn't all the story. This Spring eBay trials discovered G15 iron set, reg.steel shafts YELLOW DOT (as per that the darn chart said, but was denied by fitters). These are now Spot On
  11. I agree ... even 20 balls prior gives more fun, lesser scores
  12. Yes, always had this problem and at best it runs hot then cold, never reliable, certainly best when there's no consequences = 270-305yrds straight ahead but with consequences .. .well, just think the worst & how a short iron might have performed better. The one driver that didn't require me to change my swing from the rest and most akin to my Ping i3 3-wood/metal at the time "that I owned" and could make it long, short, work it right-left (the 3-wood) was a Ping Si3 whose head CC was in between that 3-wood and today's large head drivers. Only this driver could consistently go farth
  13. .. and yet, although I can fix or build anything, I end up with 2 grips ruined & solvent all over the floor ... wishing I could blame the Winn 7715W-CP s I do see others slip it on like it was greased and have aped everything they do - ugh 2x$7.5 grips = $15
  14. Came across your Q during my research and probable switch from graphite to steel on Ping irons. Background: Years ago replaced lost & found clubs with Ping 13-O set, graphite stiff, handicap went from 29 to 15, regular player, walk/carry only 2 years ago, fitter told me my 60-something year old swing was slower, so G25 graphites regular (NOT senior/soft), so handicap that had returned to 29 now got -11 strokes cut in just weeks Recently, weather & other distractions made me less a regular player, accuracy declined, handicap back up ... so began to question all those pas
  15. XRs ... OK .... reg or stiff, graphite or steel? and .... did you compare same with the G30s? Why asking .... thinking I made a mistake insisting on graphite when switching from stiff to reg shafts ... thus wonder if the head, e.g. G15, G25 or even XR makes the biggest diff ... thinking now it might be the shaft ... is the dog, the head are just tails?
