    Re: The Ping G400 driver

    I have a demo club from my coach, sf tec with a tour 65 shaft in, I used it yesterday as he is waiting on getting all head and shaft options in from ping to do a proper fit.
    Front 9 it went great, forgiveness there in abundance, good distance, though felt it was shorter than the 917 though that might be as it's not optimised for me yet.
    Certainly worth a try, it will be my new driver in a few weeks.

    SF Tec will be very forgiving. Might be higher spinning though?

    one of the fitters at our place gets his clubs for free and has just put the g400 in his bag despite having just ordered his epic. he doesn't usually like ping either

    Yeah the sf tec spins more, on the trackman it was coming out at 2800-3000 so a bit high but I had the chance to try on the course so thought why not.

    Re: The Ping G400 driver

    I really want to try this driver! All I've heard is how forgiving it is and people are Defo seeing distance gains. Trying my hardest not to swap my 917 but very heard especially with £125 behind the pro shop ha

    Don't believe the hype!

    It will not be longer than any other driver that has been fitted correctly for you.

    I don't think ping are hyping this from a distance perspective, but the forgiveness is there for sure.

    Ping are claiming head speed increases, only thing that can increase distance with restricted COR.

    So show me a manufacturer who has claimed their new driver/club is shorter and worse than the previous model.....
    Forever trying.

    Re: The Ping G400 driver

    A close friend of mine is a ping whore who is currently gaming a g30. He tried the newer G on a launch monitor and got 2-3 yards improvement with no better dispersion - so he stuck with the the G.



    Bouncing forward he did the same with the g400 , he tried on the monitor with no noticeable improvements over the g30, he has booked a full fitting but isn't hoping for much.
