Appearance is very evolutionary (no surprise). I'm curious to learn about the tech. My understanding is Ping thinks this has the chance to be as successful at retail as the G30. It would have to be special under the hood to achieve that.

Not a huge ping fan, but these look awesome. Definitely want to give those fairways a try and possibly the driver. Even the driving iron looks nice. These are awesome to say the least.

I'll be picking one up.  Waiting to hear if they will still digitally loft so I can get one identical to my G.  Like the face shape, my miss is high toe, and like that adaptor didn't change seeing I have 5-6 shafts already.

They look good, but I'm not sure I want that much stuff going on with the crown of the driver. IT's a bit distracting IMO. But if it works who really cares.

The driving iron in particular looks awesome. The rest of the clubs, specifically the bottoms, look sleek and a nice step forward from the G and G30 with the blue. Really like the all black look.

Interested to see what new tech is in there.

I need to go ahead and send in my preorder.  LS 10* digitally lofted at 10* with a square FA.  Then whatever midish launch low spin shaft I can add to it (if not the Rogue will be waiting).

Well, I was thinking about picking up a G driver when the price drops...but this looks rather nice.

Also, going off the looks alone, it looks like Ping's produced some good fairway woods and hybrids again.

The driving iron has "Crossover" faintly etched on the back and G400 on the hosel. What's with that? It looks like the normal crossover, just with a different finish.

Agreed. Evolutionary not revolutionary like the G30 was to the G25. This (I hate to say it) is more of the same... G30 / G / G400 look relatively interchangeable. guess we'll see how they perform.

445cc... some have reported 440

Apparently they claim the head is so aerodynamic that the equivalent in the G30 head would have had to been built sub 300cc

G30 to G wasn't a huge sales upgrade for Ping

This will be a big one

Modified shape on sole and continued use of dragonfly and turbulators to get 2 more MPH *BALLSPEED

I am a Ping Guy, love the shape of the new driver.

I have the G driver now, at address, I never notice the turbulators and the dragonfly markings.

The looks make me think that I could even hit a driver off the deck if needed.

Look forward to see the shaft offerings.

Very evolutionary changes.  Looks very similar to the G series, but one that was married to a G15 series I guess.  Liked the G series and blue accents better.  Didn't like the G series at first but it grew on me so maybe this will.  Wish Ping would pick an accent color and series name and stick with it though.  Surprised there aren't many adjustment opportunities as I had heard that was going to be featured on this new series.  I'll be curious to see them in action this weekend.
