Ping G400 Driver Review
The new G400 drivers’ streamlined shape advances aerodynamics and stability to our highest levels ever. The multi-material design combines reduced drag, a forged face to increase speed and distance, and a tungsten back weight for producing our fastest, most forgiving driver ever.
Faster Forged Face
The unique forging process and patented heat-treatment process of the T9S+ face powers a thinner, hotter impact area that is precision machined to elevate ball speed across the entire face for 16% more flexing and when paired with the aerodynamic gains, results in ball speeds nearly 2 mph faster. By making the face 6% thinner and 9% lighter than its predecessor, extra weight was placed strategically to tighten dispersion even further. The forged face was also instrumental in producing the powerful feel of the driver.
Tungsten Back Weight
With a combined MOI over 9,000 and the deepest CG location in golf, there’s no more forgiving driver available. A higher-density back weight helps with forgiveness and allows you to customize your swing weight. You can fine-tune your launch conditions prior to a round by adjusting loft up to +-1º.
Extensive research and computer simulation coupled with music theory allowed the engineers to design internal architecture that fine-tuned the frequencies to produce a deeper, more muted sound. One tour professional compared it to “the satisfaction of puring a persimmon driver with the modern technology of the G400.”
The bolder turbulators facilitate faster clubhead speed and help focus your eye for confidence. Dragonfly Technology extends to the skirt, creating an “infinity edge” effect that adds to the inspiring look
Alta CB Premium Shaft
PING’s proprietary counter-balance design allows for more mass in the head to increase energy transfer. Color-Shift Paint Technology means the vibrant copper shaft paint transitions to nearly black as you address the ball to eliminate distraction
- These are design specifications that may vary due to manufacturing tolerances.
- Lie angle is an average of the five adjustable positions
- Aftermarket shafts from Aldila, Project X, and Mitsubishi available at an upcharge. Default standard lengths are 45 1/4″
- The Tour 65 shaft is available at an upcharge – default standard length is 45.25″
- Tour 75 shaft is available at an up-charge, and is tip-trimmed 1″ when installed in any driver – the default standard length is 45.25″
PING color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
