I'm a low ball hitter. I'm currently playing a G30 7 wood (21 degrees) adjusted to the small '-' (20.4 degrees).  It has the stock TFC 419 regular flex shaft. I had previously played the G30 5 wood, but struggled at times to get it up in the air.

I'm currently looking at the G400. Has anyone hit both? If so, would you characterize the G400 as a higher launching clubhead? The 7 wood has half a degree less loft than the G30 model, so I'm thinking the launch would be similar.

I'd hate to automatically pick up the G400 7 wood and start hitting moon balls with it.

I'll likely start with a 5 wood. They're much easier to find than a 7 wood on the used market, and a lot easier to sell if I decide to ditch it.

THE G400 5 wood would do the trick. Its very easy to elevate for me in my demoing experience.

G400 fw’s definitely launch higher than the G30’s for me.  But I don’t find them a substantial improvement over the Fusion fw’s.  They are maybe a touch more forgiving but with the right shaft the Fusion fw’s are very, very good.  I guess some don’t like the shape of the Fusion head but it never bothered me.  You will have to demo the G400’s yourself to decide if they are worth the money to switch.

Any more G400 fairway wood experience's to share to this thread?  I'm interested as well, since I am looking to optimize my 3/4 wood if possible from my Aeroburner 3HL.   I have an M2 5 wood that launch's very high and am considering getting an M2 3 or 4 wood or could consider a G400 if they get considerable height for a moderate SS..

I have yet to meet anyone who has the G400 fairway and is unhappy. They're really good, so is the G. The G400 5 wood is like a 4 wood in distance. Some guys are going driver-5 wood and skipping the 3 wood. To me the Ping shape is more inviting off the deck vs the Fusion. I do hear great things about the Fusion, I just really like the look of the G400 and I've always had an easy time hitting Pings.

And yet I play a Ping G driver and Callaway XHot2 and Razr Black fairway woods because I am so comfortable with the usual Cally shape in their fairways. I have an XHot2 3 Deep with a Diamana 72g Whiteboard in it that is nearly as long as my G driver.

I thought the one club that was set was my small head ab 5w with a ad-di shaft.   Well I really wanted to drop my 3 wood and a wedge to go to 12 clubs. So, I picked up the G400 5w (17.5) opened the face and dropped it to 16.5.  I was worried Iíd miss my ab but the G400 is so easy to hit from the deck.  I will say I have to really try to move it right to left but straight or cut are point and shoot.   I also use it off the tee on any par 4 that is 385 or less.

Just a side note, my ab driver finally lost its place in the bag to a G400 lst.  Everyone is different, but the G400 line is the best mix of distance and forgiveness for me.

I just picked up the G400 3 and 5 woods with stock Tour 75 shafts, after extensive on-course testing with the Epics and trusty Adams Tight Lies Ti in the same lofts. The Adams TLT are very good, but do have a draw-bias, and would haunt me a couple of shots per round, since my miss is left.

My swing speed is 98-101 with driver, and historically have had trouble elevating 3W off the deck, namely the older G models, M2, TEE and older Callaways. I think the lower profile heads are the secret for me. Anyways, the G400's were not quite as long for me as the Epic with stock Hazardus shaft (5-10 yards tops), but way easier to elevate, and way more consistent. So high and straight off the deck...and none of that draw-bias to worry about. I'm hoping Club Champion will find that missing 5-10 yards with a custom shaft, and I will start that hunt during the holidays. I even plan on trying the G400 Stretch (13 degrees?) to maybe eek out a few more yards off the deck.

In summary....the G400 fairways launch high off the deck, even for moderate swing speeds like mine.

Update 12/21...the boys at Club Champion did find another 10-15 yards (without changing launch angle) in my 14.5 with the Fuji Atmos Blue. The stock Tour 75 spun a little too much, even at my swing speed.

I used to play the G30 with a Tour 65 shaft in it cut down an inch to match my G30 driver. I bought the (regular) G400 with a stock shaft cut down the same as the G30. The G30 shaft fits in the G400 and I was going back and forth between the two shafts but have settled on the stock G400 shaft. I liked the way it felt over the G30 Tour shaft. For the record, I use the Tour 65 shaft in the G400 driver. I like the weight better than the stock shaft. Distance between the two shafts was about the same in the driver. Same for the 3 wood. No, I did not use a launch monitor. I eyeballed it at the range using range balls and shag balls that I found on the course to compare shafts.

The head of the G400 is a bit larger than the G30. The sound of the G400 is something interesting (to me). It sounds like a softball bat too me. The distance of my G400 set up is pretty good. I am maybe a little longer with the G400 over the G30. Not by any significant length though. I just did the "upgrade" to match the driver. The larger head size seems to help me hitting the ball off the deck a little better. I am very happy with my purchase of the G400. It is a pretty sweet club.

About me - I am NOT one of the long hitters here in golfwrx like most here "say" that they are. I really think there needs to be a verify button (like on Twitter to verify celebrities) that people have to apply for when they post that they hit the ball 300+ yards or are a scratch golfer. I am not saying people fib a little but damn, there sure are a lot of people that "say" they are great golfers. I'm currently a 15.8 that can play down to a 13 or as high as a 18. It's golf. I would consider myself of a regular guy that plays golf and tries hard to take it serious. Spin numbers mean nothing to me. Results, distance, and feel are what is important to me. If I can put a consistent swing using the club in play, that is what I use now for my measuring stick. Yes spin numbers are important but for someone like me, it doesn't really mean a lot (in my opinion). I have been professional fit before for all of my clubs but with this years Ping offering of four shafts, I figured that I would have two of the four to figure out what works best for me. I feel that I have accomplished this.

I'm using the stock shaft in the G400 SFT 3W and I shortened it to match my shorter driver.  Really easy to hit and elevate - I have it in the small - setting as I was getting a little too much draw and elevation.  May need to move it to the big minus but like having the heel biased weighting to get right to left shape off the deck.

I've demoed almost every Ping FW (see sig), and I have to say that the G is amazing, the G400 is easier to launch with the right shaft in it, even the stock Alta works really well, my favorite, however, is the G25 15*, it is very forgiving, easy to hit from the tee and turf, just an overall really good performer, and you can probably get one for next to nothing...the G400 is an amazing club no doubt, the G and G30s are amazing as well, get fitted with the right shaft and go have fun, you can't go wrong with either of them...good luck.

I have the G25 3w and I like it a lot but I did demo the G400 3w and was blown away by it. Now if one of you guys would just buy one and hate it and sell it to me!

I play the G30 with a tour shaft. I tried the G and got too much spin with the stock shaft. Hit the g400 last week and didn't care for it either (sound and feel) in the stock set up. I bet if i dropped my tour shaft in it I might like it.

Why don't you just go demo one? You seem to be worried about what other people think about the club and people have told their opinions. What works for me might not work for you. The only way to find out for yourself is to demo one. The G400's have been out for long enough now that just about every place should have a demo stick to use. For me, I bought it sight unseen and have not looked back. My review is above.

what a novel idea
so many value-added comments here it's overwhelming

maybe it's because noone uses them on tour really
they don't have a good reputation
they are not known for length
and they have incredibly shallow faces, which limits some of their uses

something like that

the fact they have been out for awhile and nobody has really anything to say about them speaks volumes actually

thanks for the comment, but you are a ping guy anyway, so not really the perspective i hoped for
cheers

What's that supposed to mean?  I'm a Ping guy.  Can I not make a comment.  Well, I will anyway.....

I have a G30 3w and a 5w.  I keep the 5w in the bag because I hit it very well off the deck and tee.  (Driver/5w).  Compared to the G400, I prefer the feel of the G30 when striking the ball, to me it is a smoother/softer feel.  I also like the appearance of the club at address.  Didn't pick up the G400 FW.  I do love the driver though.  My G30 Driver is in serious jeopardy of replacement.

If you have low launch & low spin issues, then upping the loft to say 16.5* {SFT} should be the club you're looking at....they launch quite easy
G400-Max 9* Tour 65
G400 14.5* Tour 75
G400 19* Tour 85
G400 Crossover 22* Tour 85
G700 6-8 i500 9-UW{pwr spec} Recoil 110

How much draw bias do the SFT fairway woods have?
