Shoots in the 70s
Model Reviewed: Ping g10
Summary: I am 65 years old and my current index is 3.1 and I've had a Ping G10 driver in my bag for five years. Went to a trusted club fitter a few months ago and spent time on a launch monitor with all the new drivers thinking something out there must be better. He told me to look for a used G10 on ebay and put it in the closet in case the one I have breaks. Mine is shafted with a Graphite Design YS regular flex shaft. There is so much hype about the new drivers it's ridiculous really. If you are looking for a fantastic driver find a used G10 for $50 or so, spend some time on a launch monitor and then spend another $100-$150 or so on a decent custom shaft to fit your swing. You'll save $200 bucks and have a fantastic club you can use for years. If you just need to spend the $400 take the money you saved and spend them on lessons from a good PGA pro.

Model Reviewed: PING G10 Driver
Summary: Best driver that I have ever used. The club has good feel throughout the swing, solid ball contact. I actually have a 10.5 and a 12 degree G10 driver. I actually prefer the feel and playability of the 12.5.

Summary: Just got rid of a Callaway ft-9 imix. It was a good club but i traded it square for a set of irons so I wasn't to heart broken. i went to my local golf shop and tried out a bunch of used drivers. I don't like Ping irons so I didn't expect much from the G10. I was in for a big surprise! What a nice feel to it. I could actually feel the clubheaad and shaft load up. I hit everyball with a pretty little fade that kept 'em all in line. The distance wasn't amazing (220-240 yrds.) But I think it's all about accuracy. This thing helped me keep it dead on. Great driver! i paid 50 bucks for it with the headcover. i like the stock ping tfc 129 D stiff flex shaft with ping grip. i will rgrip it with a Winn dritac and all will be well in golf land. I highly reccomend this driver.
Customer Service: Don't know haven't needed it.

Summary: After reading the last review I thought I would make a comment. I am not a good golfer so my review will not apply to everyone. I am a slicer and this driver keeps me in the fairway as well as any I have tried,and that is a lot.I have giver up on learning to swing correctly so the offset driver does the job. I can still fade but the huge banana slice is pretty much gone, thank goodness. I can generally aim left center and stay in play now, same with the Cobra Speed LD.

Summary: The King Has Got No Clothes!!!!
There I said it, hopefully as per the fable, everyone will now admit it. This driver is not the most accurate for hitting fairways. If you like going left one hole and right the next, this is for you. For me this is about as dangerous as it gets. Long yes, will it improve your scores, I doubt it, you will be looking for too many balls in the rough.
