What's your pay pal - so I can sent u an invoice on this driver I'm about to buy!!!

Haha you can send me the head to hotmelt but don't send me an invoice.  I only wanted to change the sound and add a little more weight so 2.5g center crown.

Oh wow the crown

When adding a small amount for acoustics the crown has the biggest bang for your buck. Learned it from the masters In The tour vans

Wow... I fell seriously behind on this thread (2 pages actually). I really like my Tensei White, but after hearing about Agera forever it's been in the back of mind for months and now the DC....I need to stay off this thread and site cuz I was content.

But have you hit the Tensei White and can you compare the Agera your using and DC to it? 2 old guys in my group have been playing the G400'S (standard model and thankfully to much loft for me at 10.5*, and senior/reg shafts, but are hitting the best drives I've see these old guys hit). I'm kind of glad there's nowhere to demo the G400 LST.

I'm kind of glad there's nowhere to demo the G400 LST.

My thread was pretty quite for a few months due to moving (which is a nightmare process btw) so i guess i save people some money lol.  I had the Tensei White for a hot minute but it wasn't a great fit.  For whatever reason it didn't eliminate the left hook for me like the Agera did.  Agera is amazing for allowing a player to maximize dispersion whether you swing 100mph or 120mph.  It handles everything you throw at it and then some. The  KK DC XT is the first shaft that's hanging with the Agera so it's fun to play around with.  I'm hoping to jump on trackman at some point to compare the two but it will most likely be indoors which kinda stinks.  

Ping G400 LST is great and very close to my Epic SZ.

I bought a sonartec hybrid with this exact shaft for £17 and pulled the shaft to put in an Adams A7 2HY tipped 1/2'.  It's probably the only reliable thing in my life after my wife, and she's been 50/50 of late.

Small update

A few more rounds in with the Ping/KK DC combo and still feel the same.  Great combo that is producing mid launch low spin shots without going left when you gas it up.  I've had a few guys try it out and love it especially the sound after i hotmelted it.  Pre Hotmelt is was just ok.

Have you tried the X-Torrison black Mamba, if so how would you compare it to the KK DC?  From what I'm reading it sounds pretty similar, with maybe playing a tad bit tighter. I've got a black mamba 70TX coming that I was going to put in a TC GBB 8.5 head, but am now thinking of picking up a G400 to try it in.  Not sure if I should go 10 LST or a regular head but lower lofted.

I have not had the pleasure of trying the Black Mamba yet sorry.  The GBB is a great head and if you already have it might as well try it in there first.  G400 LST is a great stick and IMO the only head on the market that hangs with the Epic stuff.  If you're playing an 8.5* then i would get the same in the G400.  Or drop a Ping adapter on your shaft then hit some demo heads first.

Thabks for the advice. I've got the TC 8.5 GBB head so going to try it in that first, I'm sure I'll pick up an LST head and try out soon too. I'd be willing to give up a few yards for forgiveness but sounds like with the Ping you don't necessarily have to.

No not at all.  I finally got another Agera in the same cpm as my Callaway setup so i can compare apples to apples.  Now i just need to find time and good weather.
