Thx for the advice.

Kind of hard to see G15 on resale .. also I do not have enough knowledge to check if it has been abused. Will my first driver be a Ping? Smile

Mountain.

If it's goin to be ur first driver, would you consider starting with G10? Less intimidating when u look at it as G15 head rather big, imo. Would be cheaper as well..

I'm glad you ventured with a good aftermarket shaft for the G15, the difference in performance is astounding.

Not that i want a "i told you so" moment, but your testimony reiterates what i was trying to highlight to anyone considering the G15 - that the stock shafts were severely limiting the performance of the driver head. I do not doubt that some will actually like the stock setup, but that's probably only because you haven't really seen what you can do with this driver, given the right shaft...

Sorry i don't have the G15 woods, and have never tried them so i shouldn't comment.

Generally though, i'm of the opinion that most stock shafts are sub-standard. So far the only OEM shaft i ever regret changing was that of my Titleist 909F2, which came with a "made for" diamana blueboard. It was working perfectly fine for me till i itchy backside decide to mess with the shafts. Tried a real blueboard, then now a PX graphite. Both don't work well.. lost almost 15m and ball flight super high.

Can advise how much is the Bishan Pro Shop quoting for the driver?

It's about S$600 if I remembered correctly. I fitted my Ping Anser forge irons there. There's this guy Ben who is good in fitting.

Cornball:
Because of you, i went to try the G15 3W today. And now i want to buy it.. I wasn't even in the market for a new 3W. The face feels damn nice, sounds damn good.. and to answer your earlier question - yes, the stock shaft is horrid to me too. If i eventually get it, i will definitely go aftermarket with the shaft.

simoner:
The I15 to me is so-so.. not exactly forgiving. Launch very low even on my good hits, and not very far. My driver swing is quite inconsistent so i need the driver to be easy to use. Even most Ping sponsored pros are choosing the G15 over the I15, and i guess that says something. Ultimately you should try it yourself. What doesn't work for others may work for you.
