    Got some G10's (green dot) steeel shaft instead. I decided on the Driver after this past weekend (supposed to snow this weekend), so my bag is set. :smilie_pi

    Sounds like the challenge is on as you and your bro have now picked up new PINGs; although you went it opposite directions. I'm curious to hear the differences with the custom tuning port's new shape.

    I tried a friend's G10's, and they were really easy to hit..........moreso than my G5's. If it ever warms up here (snowing now) I'll let you know more about them. They're coming from Ping in about 10 days.

    Are the G5s and G10s very similar? I thought they were basically the same club?

    G5's suck. The G10's are better. All I know. :)

    Not really...........all Pings are similar, but there are differences. I still have the G5's so compared them. The G10 head is smaller, which I was looking for.........the G5's are HUGE. The weighting is lower with more in the toe. These are very close in size to the Eye 2's, which I love. The main reason I got them though is because I am supposed to have the green dot (2ยบ ? upright) and the G5's I have are black dot (standard lie). Made a very big difference yesterday when I played them for the first time. Had a 39 on the Westwoods course, mostly because I was more consistent with the irons. :thumbs up:

    That's freakin' hilarious!

    In sssmokin's defense, the custom tuning ports are different shapes and sizes.

    Sssmokin, I am curious to know if the new CTP shape changes the feel of the clubs much. Although, it's not like it will mean anything since I've finally fallen in love with my i5s.

    No, I didn't notice any difference in the feel. The big difference is because I finally have the correct lie so I hit the ball consistent. My G5s felt great when I hit them well. It just happens more often with these.
