    How much?!?!

    Played with a mate today who has just been fitted for a Ping G400 driver with a fancy shaft. Are you sitting down?







    £650!

    I played with a guy yesterday who also played with a G400 but didn't have the courage to ask the question. I don't know if it was a standard shaft or fancy one but either way they are not cheap. It did look gorgeous though but nothing is that gorgeous.

    I have heard that there are some golfers out there with more money than sense - and still... money can't buy you love..

    though if he traded in last weeks £650 model for £450 then he in fact has only spent £200. And I suspect that quite a few do that...

    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Job done

    Re: How much?!?!

    When I was fitted at Ping HQ, there was a short discussion re shafts. Depending on what was your swing speed etc, it Related to what shaft you had whether that be stiff or soft. Once that was decided the cost of some of those shafts was somewhat scary. Now don't get me wrong playing off scratch or a low handicapper, they might well see the benefit of such an expensive shaft, but me am hacker off 21, a bog standard shaft will suffice thankyou.

    Dave R, what is your pals handicap.

    As long as he can afford it & his kids aren't going hungry so what. His hobby/his money no issue.

    Or the alternative fact is, total cost = £850.

    I read the OP as a comment on the cost of the shaft for a golf club, not a judgement on his mate actually spending the money (maybe I'm wrong though)

    And 650 for a shaft does seem a smidge expensive wouldn't you say (but I suppose in an age when they charge 650 bucks for a mass produced mobile phone and folk still buy it then anythings possible)
