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

Indi Golf introduces two new putter designs featuring the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology

Published

on

Indi Golf Alisson Black Matte

Indi Golf has unveiled two new putter designs in two different finishes named Allison and Ramone.

The Allison and Ramone flatsticks come in both black and chrome finishes and contains the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology which, according to the company, eliminates miss-hits no matter where the ball is struck on the face.

Speaking on the new additions, Rob Lang, General Manager, Indi Golf, stated

“After designing wedges for the past few years, the putter category was the most logical next step for us in our mission to help golfers make their short game their best game.

“We’ve been developing the technology for these putters for over a year now and we’re confident they will help golfers make more putts. We’re excited to finally introduce them.”

The Allison putter is a face-balanced mid-size mallet, which features a double-bend shaft which aims at creating a perfectly face-balanced putter for the player that uses a straight back, straight through putting stroke.

The Ramone, a toe-hang blade putter, features a 30-degree toe-hang, which is aimed towards the player that favors an arced putting stroke.

As well as the Colossal Sweet Spot Technology, both of the new additions from Indi Golf are precision CNC milled and are constructed from Aircraft Grade Aluminum. The flat-sticks also contain toe and heel tungsten weighting, designed for increased stroke stability and maximum feel for ultimate consistency.

Forum Thread of the Day: “How often to replace your wedges?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from cookszn who asks WRXers how often do they change their wedges. Cookszn also asks the same question focusing on those who don’t have the fortune to be able to play the game in winter months, and our members have been sharing their thoughts, with many following a variety of different philosophies.

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.

  • MattyO1984: “Lob Wedge, every year to 18 months. Sand and Gap, every 24-36 months.”
  • dlygrisse: “Every 2-3 years. For me, it’s more of a visual check, if the chrome is wearing off and the grooves are getting a bit dodgy. I play about 10 months a year on average. For me, though, it really depends on how much you practice. If you are just playing golf 20-40 times a year or so you really won’t get much wear. But if you practice bunker shots and work on your short game on a weekly basis, then you may need new wedges every season.”
  • Oz Max: “I’ve had my set for 5 years now, and they still spin a lot, enough to zip back a few meters on a pitch shot (when I make a good contact that is!). Though I loom after them, clean the grooves regularly and use one of those regrooving tools, they are perfect to keep the edges sharp every so often.”
  • Zigzog: “I am using some Cleveland 588 Tour Action at the moment, at least 15 years old – they still spin plenty for me. New wedges will give more initial bite, but this will stop after a handful of rounds IMO – so for me, I am more comfortable with what I know.”
  • RichieHunt: “About once every 12-15 months.”
  • Roody: “I play about 100 rounds a season. I just replaced my 60-degree wedge last week. The previous one was 5 years old. I have a groove sharpener that I use on the wedges once or twice a season. Seems to keep them “good enough” for my needs.”
