New Ping G410 hybrids: The company’s first adjustable hybrid

Published

on

New Ping G410 hybrids are the first-ever adjustable hybrid that the company has produced.

The lightweight, eight-setting adjustable hosel offers loft (0, +1º, +1.5º, -1º, -1.5º) and lie adjustments (including up to 3º flatter than standard) with the aim of optimizing ball flight.

Speaking on the introduction of Ping’s first ever adjustable hybrid, John K. Solheim, Ping President, stated

“Loft and lie adjustability in the hybrids will greatly benefit golfers. It’s a technology our fitters have been asking for and we’re excited to bring it to them to help golfers fine-tune their ball flight and dial in their gaps.”

The new G410 hybrids also feature a thin and flexible maraging-steel face, which is engineered to launch the ball easily and deliver faster ball speeds.

Containing a larger profile and high-density back weight, the new Ping hybrids aim to provide golfers with added stability, while also elevating the MOI for greater forgiveness.

    Do the lie angles in the hybrids change to a flatter lie with loft adjustments like in the drivers? How about the fairways?

    I know, I should just call and check for myself.

How far do you really hit your driving iron? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing driving irons. WRXer ‘ Dufner’s Waggle’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“I have been through SIM UDI, U510, HMB, U85, CB ProH…I just don’t hit driving irons very straight or very far. I’ll have a day where I stripe it, but on the whole it’s not really giving me accuracy or a ton of distance. Maybe 225-230 at MOST.”

And our members have been revealing the driving iron they use and what distance they get out of it consistently.

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.

  • Gsea: “My driving iron is a Mizuno True 2 iron. Hit it 200-210. Strictly for tight short par 4s. Love the trajectory.”
  • MtlJeff: “I have a G400 crossover at 20 degrees, I hit it about 225 or so.”
  • COL_B: “I’ve been playing a Srixon U65 18* that I hit 220-235. I can hit it further, but high spin kills it. The Miyazaki Stiff shaft has too much flex, and when I try to really turn on one, it is a hook machine. I recently got a TM TP UDI 2 iron with a C-Taper Lite 110 S that matches my irons. It is 2 in shorter than the Srixon and goes about the same distance, but with a lower spin, and lower trajectory. Carry is 220-225, but it will roll out further than the Srixon if the fairways are dry. The thing is that I really don’t want it to go any further, as I use it on dogleg Par 4s and par 5s where a 250-yard shot gets you in trouble. Straight is the priority with the DI, which is my the Srixon is out of the bag until I get around to reshafting it.”
  • SUPERG: “19 P790 3 iron bent strong 1 degree. C taper 130X same as my irons. It’s going 250 after roll, my fave club. I hit my driver maybe 3 times a round; I hit my 3 iron everywhere else. Just way more reliable!”

Entire Thread: “How far do you really hit your driving iron?”
