Driver Review of Ping G400

Ping, like most brands, tries to lower the driver’s CG to be as permissive as possible. Most of the statistics I have seen show that they succeed in this regard.

It is easy to summarize the Ping G400 driver by saying that they managed to get deeper and lower yet again. But there’s more.

To lower your CG, remove the weight at the top of the ball’s impact on the face. In this case they did so by reducing crown thickness to 0.43mm.

This is where the Dragonfly’s design crown rests. It now boasts an ‘Infinity Edge. As the old G Driver’s rim has been removed, it has been smoothed.

G400 heads are also more oval at the back than G400, and overall the package is better looking at address.

Also on the rear of the crown are some little dots that you can feel and you think might have some aerodynamic benefit, but I am afraid they are just cosmetic.

The front Turbulators, which reduce friction in airflow over the head to accelerate it along with having an aerodynamic effect, are what does provide some aerodynamic benefits.

Specifications of Clubs

Three models of the G400 driver are available: G400 SFT (G400 LST), G400 SFT (G400)

Standard G400 comes with a standard 445cc clubheadweight of 206g, and can be ordered in 9 or 10.5deg. The standard swingweight of the G400 is D3.

G400 SFT comes with a 445cc head, but is slightly lighter at just 203g. It can be ordered in 10deg and 12deg. D1 is stock swingweight

The G400 LST has a 445cc clubhead that’s slightly heavier at 208g in either 8.5deg or 10deg options. Stock swingweight: D4.

The stock shaft is the Alta CB55 and comes in soft regular, regular, stiff, and x-stiff flexes. Standard length is 45 3/4”. Also, the G400 is available with one of PING’s Tour 65 shafts or 75 shafts. You also have the option to add the Aldila XTorsion Copper and Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Silver Dual Core TNIi as well as Project X HZRDUSY Yellow. There is an upcharge with all of the other shaft options. PING Tour or aftermarket shafts measure 45 1/4″ in length.

G400 drivers retail at $399. This review was conducted using the G400 driver in standard with Alta CB55 shaft. The shaft is stiff flex and shortened to 44 1/2″‘.

Performance

While it has been quite some time since my driver confidence was sustained, the G400 is making me feel confident. The forgiveness is simply incredible. PING claims that the G400 is the most “deepest CG” and has the highest MOI (Most Improved Golf Equipment). This seems to be true for me because the G400’s ball speed and ability to stay in the fairway are incredible. Even though we all misshit the driver occasionally, most mishit it often. It is worth asking for forgiveness.

PING gave the G400 an aerodynamic boost. This improved form reduces drag by 15% in the downswing. It also allows for more club head speed. G30 needs to be reduced from 300cc in size to achieve aerodynamic performance comparable to the G400.

The engineering of the G400 driver doesn’t stop at the head. PING makes two stock shafts, each with different specifications to maximize the G400’s performance for different players. Alta CB 55 is an intermediate-trajectory shaft. It’s counter balanced in order to balance the greater head weight. You get bonus points for it changing from copper color to black once you put it down at home. For players looking for a lighter shaft with a lower flight, PING offers the Tour 65 or Tour 75 shafts. The Kuro Kage 60, HZRDUS Yellow 75, and Aldila X-Torsion are also available for an upcharge.

There are two other versions of the G400 driver. There’s also the G400LST (Low Spin Tech) for people who require lower spin. For those who need assistance in creating draws, the G400 LST (Low Spin Tec) can be used. Reviews of these models will be coming out in the next few weeks.
