Spotted: Ping G400 Fairway Woods, Hybrids and Crossover

Published

on

At the U.S. Open, we captured photos of Ping’s G400 Fairway Woods, Hybrids and Crossover. We also spotted Ping’s new G400 driver, as well as a custom version that Bubba Watson could use this week at Erin Hills.

Ping isn’t sharing any details about the clubs at this time, but judging from the photos, there are several important changes to the clubs.

Like the G400 Drivers, the G400 fairway woods appear to emphasize low, rearward weighting as evidenced by the copper-colored weights on the back of the sole. Both the G400 fairway woods and hybrids also use “Turbulators” on their crowns, which were said to improve aerodynamics in past Ping releases.

The G400 Crossovers, which are hot-faced, oversized irons specifically designed to bridge the gap in a golfer’s bag between their shortest-flying fairway wood and their longest-flying iron, appear to have been given tungsten weighting on the toe portion of the soles. The additional of tungsten is generally used to lower center of gravity (CG) and improve moment of inertia (MOI), a measure of forgiveness.

    Still no adjustable loft in hybrids. Missed opportunity there. I may buy the new driver but doubtful upgrading to the new fairways & hybrid.

    Why do people come to words about something that has no reason to be argued over. If you don’t like it,,, don’t hit it,, why make some one think they are not as smart as you because you don’t think they are what you would play. I don’t like the Number one Golf Ball in the world but I don’t call all the players on tour stupid for playing them, or tell all of the other amateurs they are brainless for playing them. Just shut up and let people be who they are and play what they want to play. One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor.

    So complete wrong about the path-to-toe-weight interpretation, no wonder you keep asking questions about which you know nothing. And that’s OK, keep asking silly questions, it shows you really are a numbskull.
    If Ping believed in the toe weight situation, why create the CTP and place that in the middle of the head at the back of the face for swingweighting purposes, dummy? If good golfers preferred MBs, then why wouldn’t Ping make one without the CTP and have a blade with just tungsten, like everybody else?
    Wow, are you totally mental

      Word-for-word, that was my first thought/question.

      The Crossovers do have a lot of offset, just like the previous model

Forum Thread of the Day: “Players iron with a large head and wide sole?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from MillHill88 who is on the hunt for a players iron featuring a large head and wide sole. Preferring the “low offset of a players iron, and the wider sole of a game improvement iron”, MillHill88 receives plenty of suggestions on what could be the ideal fit from fellow WRXers.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • hackdaddy360: “Some will disagree, but I like the Titleist T-MBs. Minimal offset and a slightly larger head – yet retain a relatively thin top line. I’ve been a long time blade player but decided to give these a go after trying a number of irons. So far I’m happy with them – the notable difference for me is how much straighter my shots are vs. blades. Ball flight is also higher on average – which I didn’t really need help with – but it’s nice to see the mid irons stop on a dime after falling out of the sky like a meteor and freeze where they land.”
  • 3PuttsRLife: “Callaway XR Pro. They split time in the bag with a set of snake eyes 600 blades, and it’s an easy transition. The XR Pro has just the right amount of offset, and top line is not too thick, and the sole is just a hair wider. A lot of forgiveness in a head that suits better players’ eyes.”
  • SwooshLT: “Srixon z785……you’re welcome.”
  • mtlJeff: “The Mizuno 919 forged has a bit of a bigger head than the Srixon Z785. Those might be a good option. I remember thinking they were quite forgiving for a forged ‘players’ club.”
