He earned provincial colors throughout his junior years, but by the time he reached Varsity, the realization set in thanks largely to some cold ales that it was time to favor the pen rather than his clubs. With the G 400 my carry distance was averaging 212Y, my spin for a 13 to 14° loft at impact was about 2400, and I was unexpectedly impressed. Made contact via e-mail as he was at golf show. The G400 Max has a supersized sweet spot, which should increase its appeal for the target audience - mid-to-high handicappers. There is absolutely no sign of abuse.
His extensive golf experience also stems from a competitive background in college Iowa State Univ. Guess what — no phone call!! The face is 6% thinner and is 9% lighter than its predecessor allowing for extra weight to be placed strategically to tighten dispersion even further. Toney, Thank you for all the information you provided on the Ping G400. If, upon inspection, 2nd Swing identifies any discrepancies ex. The other weight saver is the T9S+ Titanium Forged Face that is 6% thinner can therefore flex 16% more to increase ball speed by 1. Have always liked Ping for being pretty straight forward with thier club feedback. Trade values are based on several factors such as demand, condition, release date and other resale factors.
Feels like a good driver but not seeing the dramatic improvements that you saw during your test. And, most importantly, how does it perform? So with the same effort, golfers can produce more speed. So thin, in fact, that it measures just 0. Or, if you are interested in getting a deal on an older model, our should be your next stop. Plenty long but it, but it was a short lived romance.
The copper colored 304 stainless steel cap sits on top of an elastomer material used for swing weighting purposes. Where other 460cc drivers on the market can appear bulky and cumbersome, the textured crown and infinity edge combine to create an attractive driver. Ping took that criticism to heart, the following is directly off Ping. Told the fitter I been having fade issue with so many drivers I used, even with the current Taylormade M2 D-type. Normally, you would have to go a few years back in technology 5-7 years to see a significant difference in performance, technology and design. Even the low spin version is very forgiving.
This particular case in point is the new G400 Driver. I always watch Golfalot reviews with keen interest which are always in a down to earth theme. What is so interesting to me is that not just myself that finds this G400 an awesome driver, but so does all the reviewers on this website. I purchase quite a few clubs from Rock Bottom as well as trade in my old sets and I've found them very fair on prices. To be fair, the G400 weight story is actually bit more nuanced.
That should make it easier for players to square the face on the downswing and reduce sidespin. The forgiveness is simply incredible. A higher-density back weight helps with forgiveness and allows you to customize your swing weight and you can fine-tune your launch conditions prior to a round by adjusting loft up to +-1º. The shaft loosened the first round I played, but a quick tighten and it's been great ever since. Somebody returned these items to The Cave without ever using them. The copper paint transforms like magic to a low glare black when and only when, the shaft is placed in the address position.
The distance to outdrive my friends, but now I am easily past them all. All of them straight, very minimal dispersion. This was my first driver purchase since I bought my Ping G5 in 2003 and I've added a good 20-30 yards on average to my drives with this new driver. The black matte finish is not going to blind you on those extremely sunny days either. Distance - She's hotter than Kate Upton on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Spin Axis - The G400 driver had better axis spin of 0º meaning true back spin, no side spin involved where the G generated. Essentially by de-lofting, the straighter face adds ball speed with less spin and the deeper increases the and combines with the thinner crown and face which is deflecting more to add to the launch angle.
Same golfer, same shaft, different club-head. No answer from pro — unreturned phone calls. The overall shape of the G400 head is also a little more rounded at the back than the G and the whole package looks better at address. These do their bit by reducing friction as air rushes over the top of the head, thus giving you maximum whip and speed.

The multi-material design combines reduced drag and a thinner, stronger, faster T9S+ forged face to increase speed and distance. These caught my eye in a hurry.
