Not only is it a good-looking beast, the G400 is the fastest and most forgiving driver PING has delivered to date. The irons also hit the spot with tour-level distance and ball flight. The full line of custom-fit, custom-built drivers, irons, fairway woods, hybrids and crossovers are engineered to help golfers lower their scores and increase their enjoyment of the game.
“The G400 driver is a prime example of how our engineering team looks at every single detail of a club to ensure we are optimising each design variable so golfers can improve performance,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman and CEO.
“In this case, we’ve gone slightly smaller in volume (445cc) to improve aerodynamics for faster clubhead speeds while actually raising the MOI higher than any previous PING driver. We also employed a thinner, forged face to deliver increased ball speeds. This commitment to performance enabled impressive distance gains and tighter dispersion – the ultimate driving combination.
PING’s tour staff, including Lee Westwood, Tyrrell Hatton, Mackenzie Hughes, David Lingmerth and Daniel Summerhays, have been quick to switch to the new G400 driver with more than 45 currently in play around the world.
DRIVERS STD, SFT AND LST
Three head options are available to match a G400 driver to a golfer’s desired ball flight. The standard version is engineered to fit most golfers. The SFT (Straight Flight) is designed to correct a left-to-right ball flight (for right-handed golfers) and features heel-side tungsten weighting and a lighter swing weight to help square the face. The LST (Low Spin) version positions the tungsten weight closer to the face to reduce spin approximately 300 rpm for a stronger ball flight.
- Tungsten and High Density Back weight
- Engineered Acoustics
- T9S+ Forged Face
- G400 has the same drag equivalence of 295 CC Same as the G30 head
- Textured Face Reducing Spin
The new G400 iron is engineered to give golfers Tour-level distance and towering height, combined with the forgiveness and control they need to hit more greens. Its COR-Eye Technology combines with a new top rail undercut to increase face flexing in a catapult-like fashion for faster ball speeds that launch shots higher and further with low spin for a strong flight. A unique heat-treating process produces Hyper 17-4 stainless steel, which makes the face 40% stronger than traditional 17-4 stainless steel and allows for a thinner face and 18% more face flexing.
- 18% tighter dispersion on shots
- Distance with stopping power
- Hydro Pearl finish which gives the golfer 40% less friction through the turf
The G400 fairway wood has expanded fitting options with the addition of a 9-wood and three SFT (Straight Flight) choices (3, 5, 7) to help golfers bring their shots back on line. The Stretch 3-wood is also available as a high-performance option off the tee to deliver distance and accuracy or when going for par-5s in two.
Maraging Steel Face offering 30% more flex giving the golfer +2 MPH ball speed
Progressive CG locations in the G400 hybrid offer versatility in helping golfers properly gap their sets. The 2- and 3-hybrids are engineered with a CG more toe side to minimise a left bias while the 4-, 5-, and 6-hybrids are designed help golfers launch the ball higher with added forgiveness.
- Maraging Steel Face offering 35% more flex giving the golfer +1.5 MPH ball speed
- 5 Yards longer
- 14% tigher dispersion on shots into the green
- Lie Angle can be adjusted
The second generation of the crossover, which combines the precision and control of an iron with the ball speed and forgiveness of a hybrid, has been improved to make it a versatile option for golfers of all skill levels. It also relies on a maraging steel face, which improves the sound and delivers higher launch, producing 30% more stopping power. The addition of a 20-gram tungsten toe weight increases forgiveness, resulting in 17% tighter dispersion. The turf interaction is greatly improved with a thinner sole and Hydropearl Chrome finish, which reduces friction 40%.
- 20% Higher launch
- 17% Tighter Dispersion
- 30% more stopping power on shots into the green
Stuart Taylor, PGA Professional at Prosports International, distributors of PING in the GCC, said: Since working with PING I have seen the development of the PING engineering excellence throughout its product lines. This, however, is a game-changer for the golfer – offering the ultimate forgiveness and incredible distance gains. G400 will make the game so much more enjoyable for many golfers in the region.”
