    I went with the Ping Tour Reg shaft and hate it. Hook city. Already ordered the Alta Stiff. I'll fix this bad boy.

    I've been testing the G410 hybrids at the range since they came out.
    Given I am a short knocker (usually hit my 4h about 175-180 and 5h about 165-170) I always grab the stock R flex. For me both the Alta R and the Tensei CK Blue Pro R were a bit inconsistent for me.
    Yesterday I tried them with the Tensei Blue stiff and it felt heavy through the ball and my results were poor. I tried the Alta stiff and whoa... what a difference. Nice high flight and most of all I felt like my results were repeatable. Baby draw with mostly every setting...and adding loft just seemed to add height without the hook spin. In the flat lie setting I hit a gentle push but preferred the baby draw of the normal lie settings.
    I liked what I saw so much that I am doing the uTry it program with the 4h/Alta stiff on GlobalGolf to try it on the course first before committing $249.

    Thanks. I have no doubt it's the shaft as I have the 3H G400 and it's a solid club for me. I ordered this Reg as I had the Tour 65 R in my G400 Max driver at the time than went to the Tour 65 Stiff and it was like it just came alive. I didn't bother trying to order the lefty Tour 65 stiff hybrid shaft as I'm done with waiting too long. Figure the standard Alta will get here alot quicker.

    I'll just play the G400 until the new Alta stiff shaft arrives.

    Anyone else spend some time with these yet?

    Still crazy to me that the 4h has got me back into the hybrid in that spot train as opposed to the Uís I was confident would be there through the season.

    Iíve got the 3h, 4h, and 5h. Iím a pretty short hitter and theyíve been good to me. If I swing smooth and follow thru a nice slight draw and high flight. Iím torn on the 5 and probably switch back to a 5 iron for a while once the ground dries up a bit. Iíve also got the G410 irons, 3 Wood, and driver. Spent a small fortune on Equipment this year but enjoying them.

    Testing the NV in the 4h and wow the change from the Alta. Lower launch, and spin, which on a personal level isnít great, but my efficiency is up and so too is ball speed. 143 with a 4h is pretty salty.

    I got my 4h in with stiff Alta on globalgolfís UTry it program.

    I hit plenty of side by side shots on the course and it simply felt heavy and clunky through the ball compared to my Exotics Xrail thatís been in the bag forever.

    Out of about 10 shots Iíd say that one was very good. The rest usually low and left.
    I fooled around with the settings and still managed to draw the ball even in the flat settings.
    Maybe things will change during the next round but if not it will be going back.

    Crazy thing is I hit the same setup on Tues and it was money. Crazy how the swing can change from day to day

    Definitely sounds like a rough first go. Those swing days definitely happen in this crazy game.

    I hammered the heck out of these on Friday while working on the NV shaft review. The fact that Iím seeing the ball speeds I am in a 22 hybrid is pretty obscene. I am 100% certain the NV knocks the spin and launch down too much for my tastes and the Alta CB is the better fit. But, that means the NV is also doing exactly what itís supposed to which is the cool thing about reviewing clubs, itís fun to see the claims come to fruition.

    As for the 410ís, set to flat, I can still draw them but itís not remotely close to being hooky and that gives me the confidence to really go after it.

    Honestly, these might be the best part of the whole 410 lineup, and one of the best all around hybrids out there imo.

    To be Fair my Xrail 4h wasnít much better. Usually my hybrid game is a stronger part of my game.

    The main difference is I never hit my Xrail fat. Itís -1Ē so swing weight is very light. The g410 I had a lot of fat shots.

    I was choking down an inch on the g410 try and get the shaft length the same too. Could be an overall weight thing. Iíll weigh and swing weight them both today.

    That NV sounds like the perfect shaft for me. I took the 4H out today with the Evenflow Black and it still seemed a little high and spinny into the wind. I may have to give one of these a go. What is the retail on those shafts?

    I'm probably picking up a 5H. My swing is still junk, so I'll wait to comment on performance, but I really like the look of this club at address, the adjustability, how the lines in the face and turbulators line up the ball, and even the sound. And for those wondering, the matte black finish completely hides any sky marks or balls hit way off the toe...
