It would be interesting to see how those things work on the top of the club. I would presume they disrupt the air flow going over the crown of the club to decrease the surface area the air come into contact with, hence lowering the drag. Though I think they look horrible.
Honestly I always wondered why the crown of the club never had more of a dimple pattern. I mean if it works for a golf ball. Of course it would probably break a lot, but just saying. Decrease drag and all.
I never liked how Ping drivers looked on the bottom. Though I really don't care much because it isn't the side I see when I hit the ball.
Also looks like the back weight is offset more towards the heel. Not sure if that is just because how the sole is designed and the weighting makes it neutral. I don't think Ping ever favored draw versus fade with their drivers before. They typically are, "Here is the driver, it is forgiving, it will have decent distance". I always consider them as, what you see is what you get type of thing.
I might hit it, depends on the golf shaft options. If they are sticking with making their own shafts, then I doubt I will hit it. The Ping i25 driver was a horrible club. The shaft was way too flexible, and dull. So I hope they improve on their golf shafts for their drivers.
I don't understand aero in the driver world, I believe aero works with cars, jets, but look what's under the hood of the most aero shaped machines. I don't in no way believe if any person with a 90 to 100 mph swing speed is going to gain anything from those shark fins. plus I challenge any golfer to try the i25. and actually use the racing stripes to line up your shot :) very very easy.
