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: “Best ball for players with slower swing speeds?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ghoul31 who created a thread dedicated to finding the ideal golf ball for players with slower swing speeds. Our members have their say on what is the ball most suited to slower swing speeds, with a variety of models receiving a mention.

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.

  • Hogan9: “My SS is 80 to 85. I play the Titleist AVX. Many people on these forums tell it’s wrong for me. I’ve tried several brands and types over the last year ( Pro-V-1 and 1X, Cally Supersoft and Chrome Soft, TM TP5X, Wilson Duo Soft and the Snell MTB. The AVX gives me the best overall performance for my game. I’ve had to slightly adjust to how it reacts on chips and pitches, but the extra distance off the tee is well worth it. “
  • North Butte: “Maybe 90mph driver swing on a good day. Driver 205-ish hit 6-iron from 150. Pro V1x but I have played AVX, B330, TP5 with pretty much similar results to my favorite V1x. Also played the Chrome Soft for a while but it seemed to fly a little low and sometimes have trouble holding greens (or maybe I just didn’t give it a long enough chance to know for sure).”
  • Hat Trick: “Pro V1X – Spin and higher launch keeps it in the air longer, but at the same time that spin holds the greens – SS 96-98 mph.”
  • Kmac: “My SS is right around 95-100, and I find the QST to the perfect for my game. I will also play the AVX or Chrome Soft Truvis. But for the money, nothing beats the QST.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Single length irons stunting development?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rbark11 who has sparked an interesting debate over single length irons in our forums. Rbark11 has been playing single length irons for the past seven months, and he is concerned that he may have issues changing back to regular length irons. Our members give their take on the matter, as well as discussing single length irons in general.

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.

  • mcs4: “No, it will not. Both my father and I are currently playing Cobra One Length irons after decades of playing variable length irons. It took both of us maybe a few rounds to feel comfortable with the switch. This weekend I played a round with my old irons, and it was different but not a big deal. My opinion is that there are pros and cons with each approach, but I don’t think picking one will make any particular negative impact on your ability to later switch to the other.”
  • Quadra: “I’ve played both. Right now I am back to VL clubs ( Wishon 560 irons). Find VL gives me more shot-making options. With uneven lies, especially with the ball above or below foot level, the shot seems easier with a more upright or flatter lie, rather than trying to manipulate a shot from clubs with only a single length/lie. VL = more shot possibilities.”
  • Aucaveman: “I played Cobra ftbo for a year. Shot my best scores ever. Our club switched to Mizuno exclusively, so I had my first real fitting. I switched to the 919 forged and had to sell the Cobras to fund the mizunos. Really wished I hadn’t. I really liked the Cobras. The shafts in the Mizuno’s are better suited for me but had I put the same shafts in the Cobras; I’d prob been better off. At some point, I’ll prob do it and go back to one lengths. I was perusing eBay yesterday actually.”
  • Brandons68: “I think that the consistency you gain from SL irons is pretty great. I have not played them personally, but have talked to several people that have, and they really like the feel of the irons and the fact that they swing every iron the same because they are all the same length.”
