    Audio podcasts in general are awful. I usually like to see what Paul Woods has to say, but I’m not going to sit through 30 minutes of all-audio, no-visuals.

      This is what I got from the podcast:
      Wood claims the G400 Max is Ping’s most forgiving driver because it was most stable in testing for off-center hits resulting in less twisting and more energy transfer.
      If you hit on the center of the face the MOI is not a factor. The forgiveness is maximized for miss-hits.
      Several tour players are playing the G400 to make them “tour tested”.

    Why does Michael Williams continuously say his name and his guest’s name? It’s a podcast.. we aren’t just “tuning in”…. we obviously started it at the beginning.. And second, Michael must have the shortest memory.. he literally had Taylormade on a couple of weeks ago agreeing with the rep that they had the best driver ever. Get’s ping on, and now says Ping has the best driver ever.. this is literally a 30 min advertising.

      WRX moderator is protecting Ping by refusing to post my valid comments.

    Start at 10:21 to skip the fluff. Be prepared for awful audio.
