    "How did you remove the grip, cut it?"

    No....blew it off with compressed air and saved it in case it gets sold one day.

    Okay so more detail on removing grip with compressed air...NOTE you need a special grip removing nozzle for your compressor...flip out the Arccos sensor with a small screwdriver, you will find the end of the grip is sealed and underneath there is a plastic counterweight plug in the shaft so you need to get a 1/8+" small drill bit and drill a hole into the grip and plastic end plug/counterweight that is in the end of the shaft under the rubber grip. Then you can blast off the grip.

    Are you sure the plug wasn't attached the the sensor? Both my sensors slipped out in one go - i went well down the edge of the grip and flipped em both out. They are about 10mm high. I know it was supposed to come out as it did because an arccos tape strip is still around one of them and includes a rubber section. There was plain grey rubber underneath the color of the buttcap.

    Looking into the end of the grip there is a grey flat rubber section about 12mm down the grip with a small opening in the center. My grip remover nozzle went straight in. There was nothing to drill.

    Sensor looked almost identical to this

    are these sensors useful to anyone once removed? Sounds like the grip is trashed in the process.
    I have a couple but as the grips are the worst (for me) I wont be using them.

    The grip is unaffected, or certainly in my case. I could slap the grip back on a shaft and pop the sensor straight back in and it would be the same as prior.

    Grip is fine, just has a hole now like all other normal grips. You could fit the grip and reinstall sensor for any other club if you wanted.

    Okay, so I have had my G425 Max for about 6 weeks now and last week shot best round for a while - with my old G400!!! The G425 is definitely longer but I don't like the sound and I don't like the feel of the strike. Going back to my trusty G400 was like putting on some old favourite slippers, just feels right Now I have a dilemma especially when the G425 from a Xmas present from the missus!!!

    An update...I went to a driving range today and just so happens they are a Ping retailer as well. I mentioned my unhappiness with my driver and they suggested I try their demo head with my shaft....Chalk and Cheese!!! Their driver performed as I had experienced when I was fitted with a consistent flight and feel, sound was not as loud too (I should have bought the demo!!!), so its over to Drummond and Ping now to see if I can get a replacement head.

    Any guesses as to why the difference? Damaged goods?

    The driver is getting rave reviews now its been released in the USA and UK, that's what prompted me to go try it out again, but mine just does not perform as I expect...or I am going mad.

    With limits on COR,it's basically choosing which driver will give you the most distance with the least dispersion from off centre strikes.
