    I'm going to hit the new one as soon as I can (better fit and really gotta get my spin down) and I'd be willing to sell it for whatever the trade value is maybe a little less. I'd rather you have it than a store thats gonna make a lot of money off of it

    Since you are getting fitted, Id wait and see how you hit both and let the fitter and numbers figure it out

    I swing about 97 MPH and was fitted by the Ping Van in the Ping Tour 65 Reg >>G400 Max 10.5. The Ping Tour shaft plays stiffer than the Alta.

    Yep. I usually swing mid-90s and went stiff in the Alta, but I would have been reg in the Tour shaft.

    Thanks for any input.
    stiffness is often more about transition than it is swing speed. and there is no standard against which to measure stiffness. one shaft's stiff flex will play softer than another, and vice versa. really the only way to know is to test, and go with the fitter's recommendation.

    the max is currently out of the bag, but i will put it back in at some point to test against the speedback. the max is just so much freaking fun, and insanely forgiving.

    Oh, I wouldn't really know. I've had 2 driver fittings, one from Ping themselves and they were useless, a waste. I had an iron fitting here in Melbourne FL at an independent retailer with two well equipped hitting bays, Moon Golf, and that fitting was pretty good.

    You may prefer the setup of the 410 head over the Max. Also, the stock 410 Alta Shaft has better feel than the G400 stock shaft. The weights may or may not help, depending on your miss.
    "It is good sportsmanship not to pick up lost balls while they are still rolling.” Mark Twain

    Once you drive TexPress at an exhilarating 95-105 mph on an almost vacant tollway in the middle of Dallas, you will miss your exit. You're going too fast and not many exits.

    i saw that, and i'm pumped for you. the thing i found so amazing about the max when i went to my fitting a couple weeks ago is that my ott path was the same among all clubs, face angle pretty much the same, swing speed pretty much the same, yet no other club could keep the ball starting and staying straight like the max. i could hear the confusion in the fitter's voice, like "why is this club working so well and we can't figure out how to get any of the others to work?"

    it's a special club. like pancake makeup for a golf swing.

    no doubt, I took some indoor swings with the Flash and the Max and saw the same, the max salvaged my sweet garbage swing better than the Flash which made it easier to pull the trigger.

    Now just gotta sell my SFT head
