    The Ping G400 driver

    It's been out a little while, so has anybody had a bash?

    Initial thoughts wanted by a fed up inconsistent driver of the ball who blames a non fitting driver for every bad shot.

    Also, if I do bite, and go get fitted, how many shafts will Ag fit me for? And would it be a lesson as much as a fitting?

    cheers


    I REALLY wanted to be picked for that gm fitting

    Sadly like any new club it only fixes your driving for about a month...

    It's ping so it's going to be a cracking club.

    I went from a G30 that fit me perfectly to a 917 that I could hit well with only my best swing. Jumped back to a G30 again and all is right again.
    I had a swing with a G400 set up the same way as my G30. It's a nice club, sound is much much nicer than the G.
    Just waiting on American golf to start up the double trade in again so I can swap the 917 for a G400.

    If spending that much on a club id be heading to Gainsborough for the fitting.

    Get that itch scratched mush and book a session with Ping at HQ.

    I'd much prefer to see the ball fly down a range than into a simulator.

    Spoke to a pro at one of our local clubs and he said he was waiting for the low spin version. You may be interested in that.

    Re: The Ping G400 driver

    For me Ping should have moved on a lot more with this driver.

    Top is far too busy and it looks far too much like the g30 that came out 3 years ago.

    I (until 3 weeks ago) had a g30. When the G came out my proshop said it was virtually the same. The g400 looks the same again.

    It sounds better - is that it?

    To anyone buying. Go for a proper fitting. Shops will only have 1 shaft.

    Wouldn't use AG personally as the shaft options are limited and I'd go to Ping HQ or a dedicated fitter

    Re: The Ping G400 driver

    Going to Gainsborough would be fantastic. However, with them not doing fittings on a weekend would probably cost me at least another £200, taking into account loss of earnings and diesel.

    James, are Ag looking at restarting that double trade in offer anytime soon?

    Find out if there is a proper fitting coming up near you.

    I got my i25 fitted by ping fitting person at Edinburgh AG.
