Literally don't know what to go for? I got fitted at the weekend and tried both seemed to hit the G series a bit better, but I've compared prices and I get can the G400 for only £30 extra and I'ce watched loads of review videos on both but still can't decide. I'm a very heavy slicer and the SF Tec helped loads, if i'm making an investment I want to make sure its for the right driver, been playing for a year now and I shoot anywhere between 100-110. Any advice?

My son-in-law just was fitted for the G series and absolutely loves them.    

BTW...Welcome to TST.   I'm guessing you're from the UK?   Where about?

I do like it but I was thinking £30 difference is worth it?

Both are very good clubs.   The clubs should last you for a long time so you could look at it as an investment over time.   In the end, only you can answer that based upon your budget and preference.

That's true, I don't mind paying a bit more because I know i'll get the use out of it, however I was thinking about going 2nd hand as I can get a SF Tec G series for £100

I would go for the one that is most forgiving, longest, and sounds the best. If they are equal there, then I would go with the newest technology.

My suggestion would be to get the G400 max driver and eith have hot melt added into the heel ( if you know a club builder) or add lead tape to the heel.  Lead tape is my choice since you can add and remove what you want.

Why did I suggest this??

The Ping  sftec is not very draw biased.  If you miss the center of the club face too, you'll lose distance. This club is not a big slice fixer if that's what u want.

The G400 max gives you a bigger club head, (460 cc whereas the tec is 445) so there is a better chance of finding the middle of the face.  More forgiveness with the world class MOI numbers.  You will hit this club further because your off center hits will go further than with the tec.  Add in the lead tape on the heel and you can create as much draw bias as u want.

    • Birdied #16 at Quail Brook today. Pulled my drive onto the 15th tee box and got to my ball where a couple of my friends were waiting to tee off, ready to heckle me. Had about 90 yards to the flag and hit a partial GW to 2'. The ball mark was 2' short of the hole from where I was and the ball ended up 2' past it. I don't know if it had a chance to go in; it probably took a hop and spun. I would have never heard the end of it if I didn't hit a good shot there.
    • Shot 85 from the tips at Quail Brook for an 11.1 differential. Hit 9 GIR. I’m starting to drive the ball better and it’s exposing weaknesses in other areas of my game.
    • Played Quail Brook today, birdied 16 in dramatic fashion. New one for the away composite.
    • I will be brief, since others have weighed in and I echo the vast majority of what they've said (plus I love bullet points).  Naga-Waukee War Memorial - 6 A fun course, architecturally interesting Several nice views Walkable Passes the "I'd play here often" test Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 Great Parkland golf.  I think the score suffered a little because all the other courses were so unique, but if this place were near my house it'd be one of the better courses available to play publicly. Walkable Firm, well-maintained greens with interesting contours Good combination of tough holes and less-challenging ones Not many real recovery options on a bad shot - most often, you're punching out from trees or laying up from a fairway bunker Passes the "I'd play here often" test  Favorite hole: #16 Lawsonia Links - 8 Unique and visually interesting Walkable Well-maintained greens with interesting contours, with play varying based on hole location (2) Par-3's were too long for me to really enjoy playing them Too many blind tee shots Some of the most fun approach shots I've had to play Passes the "I'd drive a couple hours to play here" test Favorite hole: #7 Mammoth Dunes - 8 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways Turns out, I really enjoy "resort golf".  Separation value (which @iacas) referred to above is different for a 14-hcp...I liked that a wider range of shots were rewarded, but you still have to hit the ball solidly. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test Sand Valley - 8.5 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways This is an aspirational course for me - breaking 90 the second day, even from an easier set of tees, felt like a real accomplishment...something I had to work damn hard for.  This is the kind of course I want to be good enough to play well.  At the end of the day, that's what ticked it 0.5 above Mammoth Dunes. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test
    • Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated. My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim.
