Whether shots are struck towards the toe, or heel, they simply want to go straight. So who better to poll to get an initial indication of the best performing drivers so far in ? The G10 is simply a great all-rounder. To the guy above that wants to cut down his driver? Had the chance to try the Ping G10 yesterday. These were our most consistent irons on test, and although not the longest, they proved extremely forgiving and incredibly easy to launch. Good bye Callaway FT-5 is going on consignment.

The G10 was the follow-up to the hugely popular G5… which in turn was the follow-up to the hugely popular G2! This has been addressed in the G10 in a very impressive way that might satisfy all players. The TaylorMade fitters recommended Brian try a shorter driver.
The club has a short hosel and it combines with a very square face angle that better players naturally gravitate toward. I hit five shots with each driver on Trackman IV, and to ensure as much of an apples-to-apples comparison as possible, I tested each driver head with the same shaft. Sorry, there was an error in submitting your review.
Looks and feel are subjective, of course, but fac me the improvement was night and day. Only making me more excited about making my G10 the go to club. Any Purist out there will love this club, hands down, your ahead facee your buddies if the G10 is in your bag.

I also want to address the weaknesses of the G drivers. Even at a higher loft, he was able to reduce his spin rate an average of rpm.
This is a great club to look at and the longer heel-to-toe length gives you confidence at address. Complete fluck for that shot but would never have happened with the Callaway X-tours that I was playing with before, great clubs but not good for a new player. However, I found that occasionally I would duck-hook when I gave a little more effort. The two changes had George hitting high-launching, low-spinning bombs that barely had any curvature. Improvements generally come in the form of improved head shaping, a better feel, or enhanced adjustability.

Currently playing Taylormad R7 driver, the G10 9Degree driver beats it hands down. Perhaps no other brand has had as rich a history of combining forgiveness and performance. I bought a G 10, had the people in The Valley of The Sun cut the shaft to 44 inches and combinded with a 12 dg.
Bad shots were really short and crooked. I have a 9 degree with a proforce red shaft — to keep the spin down. By creating a new custom tuning port shape, the hitting area allows a consistent ball speed from the face, while an elastomer CTP insert controls vibrations for a solid feel.

Driver looks great at address as well. I get about 20 yards more with this club than the Rapture on well-struck balls.
Average shape slight fade. One way to explain the improved launch conditions is that I hit the G drivers more consistently. Darrin told TaylorMade Fitter Jason Werner he needed a higher ball flight to cut the corners of the doglegs at his home course, where he plays 95 percent of his golf. When I hit them well they are dead straight and really good distance. You must log in or register to reply here. I can tell you for a fact that even though the G10 may seem to only have minor differences over previous models, the minor changes in weight distribution and construction have combined to form a driver that is a major improvement in ball speed and forgiveness.
