If your combo is working,  I wouldn't worry about it too much about the swing weight.

its working. just wondering why his was able to go down to D3.5 we have the same weighted heads and his combo is .25" longer than mine

Finally tried the G400... regular head I think... tried in with the stock R, then Stock SR and then Evo IV Stiff. Stock R and stock SR was with a 10* head.  Then Stock SR and Evo with a 9* head...

First off, I must say feel and sound was.... excellent.  The stock shaft felt very good but a td soft, was over drawing both.  Evo Stiff was the straightest and I think Stock Stiff or Evo Iv Sr would be best for me in a 9* head.  Rep tells me this is a Fuji Evo IV made for Ping and hence not the same as after market Evo IV?  True?

This is a carry monster.  The 9* head is best for me but I can also hit that higher than normal. 10* was way high. As I started, monster carry but little roll.  Overall distance will be slightly longer for my current stash but I can see how this will be good for year end rainy season when courses are soggy.  Didn't try the LS of other heads. Maybe I should.

Got me thinking about Ping again but will stick with Ping supplied shafts this time round fi I do go ahead with it.

LST head is not a demanding head at all. I really suggest you try it.

I honestly still can’t believe I have a Ping driver in my bag, but it really is outstanding.

Have gamed all settings of both 9 and 10.5 versions
The 9 cranked to big + had the best results for me with a seeminglyclosed face.
I am getting the distance and carry although I wish the trajectory were higher.
It’s the very reason why I tried the normal G in 10.5. Was hooking the the thing.

Going to test this out vs DOA 10.5 driver next month.

I actually quite enjoy the „Bat Mobil“ look of it. But you can clearly see that the finish is not on par with JDM offerings.

Mine is a very early LST model and the finish is pretty crappy really.
