PING Introduces G410 Drivers with moveable weight Technology

Significant advancements in custom fitting while delivering golfers the highest MOI’s and ball speeds available highlight the new PING G410 Plus and G410 SFT drivers. The multi-material drivers are available for pre-order today, and custom fitting at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning in mid February.

From Ping:

Quote

“OUR NEW, MOVABLE-WEIGHT TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES THE BENEFITS OF CUSTOM CG LOCATIONS, INCLUDING DIRECTIONAL CONTROL, WITHOUT SACRIFICING MOI OR BALL SPEEDS, WHICH IS WHAT WE’VE ALWAYS SEEN WITH OTHER NON-FIXED-WEIGHT DRIVERS. THE G410 PLUS OFFERS GOLFERS A SIMPLE, LOGICAL WAY TO CUSTOMIZE THEIR DRIVER AND ALLOWS THEM TO SWING AWAY ON THE TEE BOX WITHOUT FEAR OF MISSING THE FAIRWAY.”

—JOHN K. SOLHEIM, PING PRESIDENT

My G400 was one of the best drivers I've ever played, and continues to be put in the bag regularly.

I'm excited about the G410 and really looking forward to putting it through its paces.

Man, that driver looks awesome.

Interesting to see the F9 driver has the same-ish style ribbing on the top. They both seem to have the angular ribs near the face and the two ribs across the top to the back. Ping's ribs on the clubhead are more pronounced than the F9 and in the previous iterations of the Ping driver.

I am glad to see them make the hosel more adjustable (wider range of loft values).

Strange that the SFT and the Plus are at 455cc. Maybe they found that they get a more aerodynamic profile with a bit less volume?

The SFT currently is only offered in 10.5 degrees with a D1 swingweight. The Plus has 9,10.5, and 12 degrees and all with a D3 swing weight. The SFT has the weight fixed in the draw setting, so not adjustable.

Pending spin profile, I suspect I would be the Ping G410 Plus, probably the 9 or 10.5 degree option, with the Ping Tour 75 X-Stiff shaft.

I wonder if they will come out with a lower spin model.

Oooh yes please. Always been a fan of PING drivers. Manage to make them look a little crazy yet somehow stylish.

400 LST has been a good one for me so not sure if this will be in the bag but I'll certainly give it a try.

I like the updated crown design. Wasn't a huge fan of the dragonfly graphics. 

Really interested to see how the new driver adjustments, specifically the flatter lie angles, work out. Would love to play a driver that is one or two flat from standard.

I think they found that was the best compromise for forgiveness and aerodynamics.

Most likely you'll see an LST head sometime this year, I would guess late August/September.

In another article I read Paul Wood said the LST was really good and hard for them to beat.

Well, I am a very happy camper!  I went to a Ping demo day at The Valley Golf Center in AZ.

I got a chance to try the new G410 Driver, 12º. The representative from Ping fit it with the Alta CB 45 Red, Soft Regular shaft.  The weight was set, by the Ping rep, to counter my problems with my overly wide draw.

It was love at first swing! I was able to hit about 45 strikes and got a chance to monitor ball speed and distance.  I usually use a Ping G5 12º, senior shaft.

It was a great experience. My ball speed increased by about 15% to consistently be 90 - 100+.  Because of the ball speed, flights were about 20 yards+ on every swing.

The shift of the weight did indeed keep my dreaded left turn from appearing. It took a few shots to work out the change of feel, but,  I never have hit straighter drives. 

The thing that really made my day was the total feel of club. Balanced well, I had the best feel of a strike I can recall.  What really excited me was how centered in the sweet spot I hit the ball.  

I was seriously looking the the G400Max.  That is a spectacular driver as well.  But the G410 is the one for me! When the club is finally released,I will purchase one.

I was excited to see my Golfers Warehouse had the G410.  I've been loving the F9 indoors and the flash subzero was good to me outside when I had the right shaft in it.  It's been a 2 horse race but I really wanted to see where the Ping would come in.

i was disappointed with it.  I was hitting on the  new GC2 quad and was psyched to see it had Tensei Orange shaft in it ( even though it was not the pro model).  Since I have a counterbalanced HZRDUS yellow now, I thought this would be great.  Practice swings it felt dynamite...and that's where that ended.  2 way misses, low ball speed, lack of distance, mediocre spin and no feel.   I even went so far as to hit it a few different times after hitting the F9 just in case I was swinging bad the first time.  Didnt make a difference.  I actually get better numbers from the g400 Max with almost any shaft I put in it.

At least the TM M5/M6 even though ball speed was not great had lower spin and still got the ball out there decently.

The Cobra is just crazy good.

I need some of you guys to sell your USED G400 drivers on eBay now...hurry while my G30 still has a little trade in value.

    • Would be tough to golf in Michigan...
    • I grew up playing in the wind in the St. Louis area.  Qualifying for the high school golf team or the university team (scant miles from St. Louis) in the Spring was hell!  I am no longer there and I will no longer play in the wind.  Period.  Even when I play WGT I set the wind at "low". But I will play in the snow.
    • I get annoyed with the dewy 7 AM grass grabbing the face of my clubs when I chip.  I marvel at the wind owning my would-be solid strikes.  Shots with altitude changes make it hard for me to judge distance. Slope-infested greens, insane heat, fairways in need of some rain, foggy mornings, etc, all create challenges. Which ones do you hate to encounter? Which do you thrive in? What stories can I get from you about your experiences in difficult conditions? Do you consider these conditions part of the game? A fun additional challenge? Something to be avoided when you can?
    • Speaking of white spray paint... a few years ago I carried a can of paint in my bag and painted the upper earth/dirt portion of the 4th hole cup at my local course (using a pre-cut template so no paint got on the putting surface) to resemble how they paint the cups for PGA events.  My golfing friends are essentially non-observant and didn't know this was done... which gives the pros a bright white target to aim at. An advantage we mortals don't get. They all loved putting at that cup.  I'm sure the greenskeepers were a bit surprised the next morning.
    • Full disclosure this is my 1st set of clubs fit to my swing. Im fairly new to consistently playing golf but now after a few lessons and plenty of practice have a fairly consistent swing. So i had an iron/wedge fitting done yesterday outside on grass and landed on I210s w/ KBS stiff shafts (tried T100/200, CF19, Epic, JPX 919 and I500 same day). Both the DG 120 and Project X were sp8nning too much. The fitter also recommended the following: 1) -1/2" shaft length. This has to do more with a small adjustment on the lie angle. Tape showed me center but slight toe action. My miss is left and ball flight starts a little left. His recommendation was to choke down and all balls went straight. 2) 1 degree strong from standard loft.  7 iron would carry 168 with club head speed of 91 (if i remember correctly), ball speed 122 and 95 ft at apex.  This may have been an adjustment to lower spin with shorter shaft.... I'm thinking about ordering these clubs standard length and loft to feel them out. In case there is small improvemwnt to my swing vs cutting length. I'd also just choke the club to test on the course a while before cutting the shaft. Lastly, although these are cast clubs and not forged I've also heard they are a little hard to bend the lofts/lies. I would guess a good club shop could bend these 1 degree at some time later, correct?  I'm guessing if this is true, it has something to do with the metallurgy. Appreciate the feedback to help my decision!
