Ping’s new G400 driver is hailed as its fastest and most forgiving to date, headlining the G400 series which also includes irons, fairway woods, hybrids and crossovers.
Ping’s tour staff including former World No 1 Lee Westwood have switched to the new driver with more than 70 currently in play around the world.
The unique forging and patented heat-treatment process of the T9S+ face creates a thinner, hotter impact area that is precision machined to elevate ball speed across the entire face. By making the face 6% thinner and 9% lighter than its predecessor, extra weight was placed strategically to tighten dispersion through higher MOI.
The G400 driver’s high-density tungsten back weight and Dragonfly Technology help bring the combined MOI over 9,000 gram/cm2 for the first time. According to Ping, this positions the CG lower and farther back than any current driver on the market.
The streamlined shaping harmonizes with new, bolder turbulators and Vortec Technology to reduce drag by 40% mid-downswing and 15% overall to increase clubhead speed. The Dragonfly crown technology extends to the skirt section on the sole, providing additional weight savings and creating an ‘infinity edge’ effect creates an inspiring look at address. The internal architecture is designed to produce a deeper, more muted sound.
Three versions are available: Standard, SFT (Straight Flight – designed to correct a left-to-right ball flight) and LST (Low Spin – reduces spin by approximately 300 rpm for a stronger ball flight).
Suggested Retail Price: ALTA J CB shaft – RM2,950, available in Malaysia on August 1.
