  1. So I tried a used Scotty Cameron Newport Select Notchback 2016 with a Large matador grip. I currently own the Ping Karsten TR Zing and have the PP58 grip on it. The Scotty Cameron was great loved the feel but mostly loved the grip! My question is if I purchase the grip will I be able to have it installed on my Ping Putter? The second question is will the feel of the putter change? The main thing I noticed with the Scotty Cameron with the grip that it felt very smooth compared to my own putter during the stroke. Thanks and sorry I'm aware this are maybe insane questions but I can't afford the Notchback at the moment.
  2. Went back again and the Mizuno's just suit me so well. I actually think these clubs will improve my scores once I get my hands on them which I have honestly never really had with clubs before. I have reasonably new clubs which when I purchased believed would improve my game but once I tested them didn't help me much they just look nicer so decided to get them anyway as I like new things haha. These Mizuno's however actually seem like they are going to help! Can't believe I didn't consider them sooner! No matter what I do within reason the ball goes perfectly straight. I don't think it will be very easy to shape them but to be honest I'm not good enough to be worrying about that at the moment. If I can hit my irons straight every time I'd be super happy. Might even be dropping some of the hybrids in my bag 🙂
  3. Just wanting some feedback from anyone who has tried both of these clubs. Tested both today. I have been absolutely set on the P790's JPX Hot Metal didn't feel amazing but every ball I hit went perfectly straight. Best iron I have hit ever in terms of consistency. P790 was a nightmare. High, Low, Slice etc. Do you think that I just had a really bad test with the P790 or the Hot Metal's really are just that easy to hit and I am not a good enough ball striker for the P790's? Its really hard to get a proper fitting in Thailand so feedback is greatly appreciated especially from high handicappers.
  4. If we are juts talking about carry then yes I can swing the 7 Wood hard enough to close the gap down to 10 or so yards. The massive difference is in the roll out. The 7 Wood goes high and juts stops. The 3 wood rolls out alot more. I can confidently use the 7 wood on longer par 3s and it stops very quickly on the greens.The 3 wood tends to bounce straight off the greens if you hit them. Hope that helps
  5. @barnum1 I have a G400 4 hybrid which goes around 170-190. 7 wood SFT 180-200 yards depending on how hard I swing. My 3 wood SFT goes 190-210 carry again depending on how much swing I put on it. I did manage 240 yards with roll this weekend but that is very rare. Id say its a perfect 4 iron replacement. I pretty much hate my g400 4 hybrid. it seems like a lot of effort to get the ball in the air vs the 7 wood which pops it up in the air with minimal effort and stops on greens very well. I would buy the 7 wood SFT if I was you based on my experience. What irons are you playing?
  6. I think they add loft to the SFT versions because it helps keep the ball flights straighter. I'm not sure if thats true or not just passing on what I have heard. The G400 7 Wood SFT is my go to club!
  7. I am looking to purchase the new Taylormade Orginal One Mini Driver and don't have the option to get custom fit due to living overseas. My current fairway woods use the Ping Tour 65 shaft in stiff flex. Which Project X HZRDUS shaft is some similar? I have looked at the information online but can't work if out so if you have played all of these shafts I would love to hear from you which is most similar. Thanks
  8. I own both and like both. Consistency didn't improve with the Tour 65 at all! Launch and feel is the difference I found.
  9. I wish! A lot of the courses I have played so far in Thailand only seem to have mens and womens tee boxes. The course I played last weekend had a 600 yard par 5 which for a short hitter like myself was a nightmare!
  10. I am playing Ping G400's Woods and Hybrids which I picked up used and had a bunch of different grips as a result. I also was really keen on keeping the Ping logo on all of them. I was completely set on the Tour Velvet style. Ended up going down to the local pro shop and tested a bunch of different grips and walked away with all of my clubs getting re gripped with Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G in Red and couldn't be happier! I suggest you go and actually try out a bunch of grips and see what feels best. It made a huge difference for me!
  11. Sorry I've got you confused! I'm super happy with the Hybrids and hit them well. No intention of getting rid of them 🙂 I just mean in terms of having no 7 iron in my bag and going from a 6 Hybrid to an 8 Iron being the next club in my bag. It isn't a setup I have seen anyone using.
  12. Ok that makes sense! Would you suggest I drop the 7 Iron as well like Vinsk said and go 30* 6H, 34-36* 8 Iron, 40-41* 9 Iron?
  13. New Golfer looking for some advice on my bag setup. I love the Ping G400 Hybrids but am finding that I hit my 30* 6H the same distance as my 7 Iron. I was looking to get the G15 8 Iron to fill in the gap in my setup but am worried the loft gaps are wrong. My current setup is in the picture below and the 4H & 8I are the clubs I am looking to add but am wondering if I need to change my approach to the iron setup. The only other setup I can see that would have more even loft gaps would be to have two Pitching Wedges which seems insane! Any advice would be greatly appreciated and suggestions on irons that might be suitable as I would like to keep my Vokey wedges and also really like my 47* Ping Tour Gorge Wedge. Doesn't have to be Ping either just anything that would work better than what I have! Thanks in advance!
