The classic is not the most forgiving.  Try the 440cc variant.  I just reshafted it with a Crime of Angel California shaft and its given this head another wind.

Is this a low spin driver? On the Epic SZ, I've tuned that baby up from 9.5* to 11*. So should I do the 10.5*? Also can this be hit off the deck and maybe leave the 3W at home?

How's the Ball speed on off-center hits? I realize that it wont be as forgiving as a Ping G, but is there some forgiveness in it?

It's lower launching, definitely.

I believe it is low spin as well, but I've never cared to get the numbers.

I'd get the 10.5. But then again, I'm a bit biased as the launch from this combo with a Kai'li 80X is damn near perfect to my eye.

I can not hit it off the fairway. Not a shot in my arsenal. I barely grab the 3 Wood for off-the-deck approaches. I try to stay within myself and reach for no more than a 2 Hybrid (18).

Without a doubt. My dispersion from a 440CC Driver to the 350CC A-Grind is night and day. If my dispersion with the 460CC was 120 yards from left to right, my dispersion with the A-Grind would be 40-50 yards. Theres no comparison here. Distance? ... On a mis-hit, I can lose up to 25 yards. I average about 290 with the A-Grind at 43.50" at Sea Level. On a mis-hit, a heel struck drop kick, I'll get 260 out of it. I just bank it in my head as a well struck 3 Wood from the tee. Lol. And then I'll work on it after the round or at a later point in time.

.... Let me say this .....



If you are COMMITTED to trying a sub 400CC Driver, and you limit your expectations going in, you won't be disappointed here.



... Do not expect to jump into the A-Grind 350 and gain 7 yards over your Epic or M1. But do expect to hit 2-3 more fairways per round and only sacrifice a handful of meaningless yards.

Mine arrived today. The black gloss version with an attas coool shaft.  Even better looking in person.
