Very interested to hear your thoughts on the G400 driver/fwy.  Will you be shafting them with the Chromes or stick with stock?

I am loving the G400 LST driver and fairway.  I will probably get a hybrid too since I like these so much.  

I am currently using the stock Pro 65/75 in these woods.  I will probably try to figure out what UST profile these are and try to acquire something close in their lineup, or go with Atmos Blue or Elements Chrome.  I called Ping and asked what they could tell me about the stock Pro shafts and they didn't have anything for me.  

I have an email into UST.

So using the G400 LST 8.5 with stock 65 stiff against Epic SZ @ 9.5 with stock HZRDUS 6.0 (I know it's not apples to apples) I found the G400 to be noticeably longer and my misses are not as bad.  I like to draw the ball so I aim down the right side and my miss is when I block the ball and it just stays on that line and leaks right instead of drawing back.  When I miss with Epic SZ my ball will leak right a bit...not bad but a little.  With the G400 LST my ball will stay dead straight on my start line and most times even fall back to the left a bit.  It will not leak right on me.  That alone seals the deal for me.  I just feel like I get more center hits with the 400 LST and it was longer for me every time.  

The 3 wood has been a delight.  One round in with that but just seems really easy.  My favorite fairway has been a tour issue 2016 m1 with Atmos Blue 6S.   I have that same confidence with the G400 at this point.  I pulled 3 wood four times yesterday and they all came out exactly as I saw the shots in my head before putting the swing on it.  

I could easily play the Epic woods.  They sound and perform phenomenally.  Ping 400 line is just really jiving with me and I'm not a huge fan of Callaway so it's easy to move on.

Very interesting sir.

From what I have always understood, the UST Elements Chrome was the same profile as the Ping Tour shaft. May be wrong, but I know I have read that somewhere. What shaft is in the Ping G400's now, is it the Tour shaft or just the stock Alta CB?

I may have to give the G400 another go. I have something special planned for a build.

Tour 65/75 in these for now.  

Yeah I feel like I've read that somewhere too about the Elements Chrome but I would like to get something confirmed instead of speculation.

Thanks!

First off I'm loving the G400 LST.  Best head I've used at this point.  Literally no complaints.  Long and straight.  Extremely forgiving.  

I have one round in with the Tensei Orange.  Carded a nice round but driver swing was off on some holes.  The course was wet and playing long and slow and I was as long and longer than I've ever been on some holes where I put a good swing on it.  It's likely a keeper.  Feel is great.  

If I wasn't going counterbalanced I'd go Tensei Blue.  I have the Blue in my G400 3W and it's superb.  

Nothing has been able to knock out the PXG 0311T's/LZ 6.0.  I have some i200's coming to test to see if I can gain anything but I'm skeptical.  Maybe look at 718CB next spring.  

O-Works 2Ball has been insane.  It's almost comical seeing all the putts go in.  I keep trying to replace it with something sexier as it's kind of an ugly chick...but it's probably foolish on my part.  Maybe I have to look at some double bend setups like Ping Oslo or Toulon Memphis.

Can you compare the tensei orange to the white?  I bag the tensei pro white 70 in a 4 wood and its crazy awesome.  Trying to duplicate results in driver and this driver is on my list?  Why CB on this head?

BTW, love the hybrid your bag.  One of the best hybrids ever.  Wish I still had mine.

I have not hit Tensei White so I can't compare.  

If you love the White in your 4 wood then maybe you should roll with it?  I don't know.  The Orange should provide the same low spin/launch as the White, but with counterbalance.  So maybe go on what you like to feel from a swing weight perspective?  The White should feel a little heavier.

Went counterbalanced because I got excellent results with the stock Pro 65 which is slightly counterbalanced and wanted to stay in that profile somewhat.  Also the G400 head is slightly heavier.  

Yeah that G25 hybrid is money.  I have a G400 hybrid and it hasn't left my basement.

It's a stock head with aftermarket shaft.  Did not order heavy head or anything.

Some notes to wrap up the year here...

I really enjoyed the Ping G400 woods.  You'll be hard pressed to find anything better...equal yes...better no.  The LST with Tensei Orange was a beast but the 8.5* is probably a little low lofted for me.  Excellent head and combo though.  The fairway with Tensei Blue was excellent as well.  May have been a touch high on spin but very straight and playable.  

Since the Ping woods were just a little off for me, instead of continuing to try and experiment and tweak I am just going to go back to TM woods.  They will be close enough in performance.  I already have a tour issue 2016 M1 fairway which I love and ordered a tour issue 2017 M1 driver.  I'll go Atmos blue in these with Tensei Orange and Blue on standby.

At the end of our season here I played some rounds with i200 w/ PX LZ 6.0 at my specs.  Wanted to see if I could gain anything with something a little friendlier.  These are excellent clubs and the results were great, but not enough for me to give up the feel and what I like to look down at.  Great clubs though and the long irons were a pleasure.

Irons...PXG 0311T still #1 for me.  I have some MP18 blades with 6.0 LZ that will get the start in the spring.  

For grips I ended the year with MCC Plus4 with Align and really enjoyed these.  They felt really nice and I feel like they gave me a better chance of being more consistent with hand placement.  I am taking a hard look at the new Lamkin players cord grips.  Will be looking out for feedback on those.  

For reference and if people need feedback on anything I gamed this stuff in 2017...there were other things here and there but not enough extensive use to list...
