Last night I hit the 410 and the max side by side on the sim. They were so close, it was a toss up. I’d have to hit them outside together. I can’t believe something beating the Max especially for forgiveness so I would hit 5 of each going back and forth. Anything I read online, those people have come to the same conclusion. The 410 is not better than the Max. It just offers a moveable weight and more hosel adjustments. I like the fact that the max does not have a moveable weight.
i was picking up 2 mph more ball speed with the 410 and a little better smash factor but I noticed when I was putting the headcovers on that the 410 was set a degree lower. That would account for both issues. The 410 look like it would launch lower anyway. I was getting 12.4 vs 16.4. Spin was 100 rpms apart. With those differences the 410 carried 296 and rolled to 326. The Max carried 300 and rolled to 325.
The 410 sound is more muted but it’s not a huge difference. I still like the Max. For some reason I just have so much confidence over the fact that I can rip at it and knows it’s going to be straight.
