Ping LST G400 8.5 ordered to 9.2*

Next up working on a new 3w - would like to test a 80g shaft

Either a another 16’ M2 deep face or been researching the tour edge cbx T3 15* , logic is that head shape is close to the M2

I do not want to touch my current 3w

Haven’t Posted in a bit, traveling for work & not that much golf

Irons - 716 MB x100 HS , why I ever cheat on Titleist irons with Mizunio, i need a 12 step program.  Love that mizuno feel but the huge size of the PW and larger top lines, should make me NEVER buy their irons again.    RIP my 712’s i sold mistakenly , I am sorry guys

Putter, real wild card here, firted with a spider for while (Fantastic putter ) LOVE my betti BB8 tri sole, but what’s in the bag is a Toulon San Diego , with a super stroke GTR 1.0 counter (25g) the wide boxy set up just appeals to my eye.  Much to my sugrin, feels softer than my Bettinardi

3w -2016 DF M2 with 90 TX - nuff said

driver

M4 - Great driver , hot melted enough for it to feel like a baseball bat , was very long , but looking for a hair less spin

Enter Ping G400 LST - M4 forgiveness with Less Spin , bought a measured head @ 9.2 * , interesting after testing the head, the +.06 setting has been the best

Testing Shafts

Pro Orange 80TX - love the feel of this shaft , stable and spin is slightly lower & launch than the Pro White

Pro White 70TX - probably the longest out of the the two shafts , but the handle at time feels a little loose for my liking

——-

That said, shot a 74 on my home track @ 7039 yard (50 degree weather and 15-20 wind ) pretty pleased

Just got a M3 440 head and a D+ 70TX to test ; ping is going to be hard to beat
