    Just got my Ping 3wood

    Post  Lord Helmet on Mon Feb 25, 2013 2:50 pm

    From 3balls golf.

    Took the grip end, grabbed the head, twisted, and it made a huge cracking sound at the hosel.

    I called 3balls. They said I had to work directly with Ping.

    I called Ping. They said I should work with 3balls.

    I called Ping back and said f*ck 3balls now and in the future. Ping sent me a shipping ticket w/ free overnight. They are going to re-shaft and offered me up-charge shaft at no charge. They are sending it back to me free and overnight.

    F*ck 3balls golf.

    Cool. What shaft was in it broken when you got it? What shaft are Ping installing? Sounds like you could be getting a sweet deal.

    Ping uses the TFC shaft (made by Graphite Design) for their G20 line. Its really a fine stock offering and fits my swing rather well.

    I went ahead and got the Graphite Design YS6+ in S flex. I love the feel of the YS6+. I tried to talk them into the Tour AD but oh well....

    I had some YS-6 and +'s but ended my relationship with them. They are OK and are about $69 retail. I liked the driver YS-6 a good bit better than the YS-6 fairway shaft. Maybe they are better with that thicker tip diameter.

    Yeah, nothing too sexy about the YS6+. Its an 'everymans' shaft IMO. Fits most swings. Feels good and stable to me. I like it. Its a free $69 for me anyway....

    What the hell did U try to do? , pull out the shaft without heating the hosel ? Very Happy

    Anyway, I am flying on the corporate shuttle and it has internet connection (aircell) which I am using now. It's pretty cool. The jet has about 65 seats and each seat is designed like a first class seat on commercial air craft... Great way to travel within USA

    I put a YS-6 in a driver several years back. I used to kill that thing dead straight, but decided I needed to get on the 460cc bandwagon. I've currently got a YS-7 in a 3 wood. Pretty good shaft for me, without having to spend big cash.

    YS7 is the big bro of the 6 I think. Heavier and firmer. Only comes in S and X flexes.

    You shouldn't blame 3ballsgolf or Ping. This is the golfing gods way of punishing you for being such a p#ssy and threatening to use that 3 wood primarily off the tee.

    I got nothin'...I stand before ashamed at my weakness! Maybe I will move back a T or 3 and return the 3! Laughing

    That was quick. You wrote that you sent it back for a new shaft but didn't mention the loft adjustment. Should have no problem elevating your shots.
