Ping G410 LST: Low spin offering joins G410 family

Published

on

Ping Golf has today added to its G410 driver family, introducing the Ping G410 LST, which according to the company, is a high-MOI driver engineered to produce low and stable spin.

The new addition from Ping features the same movable-weight technology found in the G410 Plus model. With the G410 LST model, however, the CG position has been moved slightly forward in all three areas (draw, neutral, fade) which aims to promote spin reduction of approximately 200 to 400 rpm, depending on shaft choice and a golfer’s launch conditions.

Each weight position shifts the CG location by 1/10″ in each direction from neutral, influencing left or right shot direction approximately 10 yards, and speaking on the moveable-weight technology featured in the G410 LST, John K. Solheim, Ping President stated

“The addition of the movable-weight technology in our low-spin driver option allows us to fit a wider range of golfers. A perfect example is a high-swing-speed player who battles a miss to the right. In that case, the combination of placing the weight in the draw position and the lower spin greatly improves dispersion and leads to increased ball speed for more distance.”

The club also features Dragonfly Technology on the inside, designed to create an ultra-thin crown structure, saving weight, which is moved to the extreme boundary of the clubhead to increase the MOI by 3% (compared to the G400 LST) for added ball speed and forgiveness.

The G410 LST driver head (450cc) contains a more rounded, pear-shaped design which combined with Turbulator Technology aims to provide for added clubhead speed, while the face of the club sits slightly open and the score-line pattern frames the impact area in a bid to offer players improved alignment.

The lightweight and adjustable hosel of the G410 LST expands from five to eight settings, offering loft (0, +1º, +1.5º, -1º, -1.5º) and lie adjustments (up to 3º flatter than standard) which seek to optimize ball flight.

Speaking concerning the G410 LST’s new technologies and benefits, Solheim said

“The head size is slightly smaller than the Plus model and the CG is positioned to reduce spin several hundred rpms while still providing extremely high forgiveness. The combination of lower spin and more stability plus the ability to dial in the shot shape with our movable-weight technology greatly expands the types of golfers who can benefit from the technology of the G410 LST driver.

As always, we encourage golfers to undergo a thorough custom fitting with a trained PING Fitting Specialist to determine which G410 driver model best fits their game.”

    So was it disingenuous when the 410 came out and Ping said there was no new LST because they won’t release a newer model unless it’s better than the previous model (and everyone praised them as wonderful) or is Ping’s engineering, design, production and distribution so good that within a few months they were magically able to get the 410 LST to market ?

    Just bought the 410 Plus and couldn’t be happier but I had no idea this was around the corner. I’m guessing the Plus is the more forgiving option?

      I purchased the 410 plus with a GD BB in it and my spin rate is already only 2400-ish…I don’t need it any lower

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK PRO Orange 80 Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
