wondering what shaft and flex you guys play in this? Ive heard their stock shaft is pretty decent.  Depending on the brand I bounce back and forth from a stiff to and extra stiff, around a 108mph swing speed.
give the tour 65 stiff a chance. I get up that high on my fastest and was still performing beautifully.

x2.  I've tried the Alta S flex, and the tour S flex, and feel like the tour is just a little stiffer than the Alta. Both shafts feel good with this head though.  I'm playing the Tour S.  Swing speed is 107-109.

I just picked up my new G400 Max driver after an excruciating 12 day wait and boy was it worth it!

Glad you like the driver. Just curious how many headcovers do you have in your bag?!

LOL!  Yes.  Exactly. Me.  

I believe actually  liking the look, shape, and sound of a club that you use 13 or 14 times a round is pretty darn important.

And yes....beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  I just behold The Hunchback Of Notre Dame when I see that thing.

The Alta shaft is worth a go. I don’t have the Max, just the normal G400 and I bought a Kuro Kage Stiff Dual Core TiNi to try.

Have since sold it as I hit a regular Alta CB much better, three drives over 280 yards today, straight as a die. 44.5” total length.

You guys whining about the turbulators and dragon fly wing pattern..... lol.
Youʻre looking at the top for a second or two before you hit the highest, straightest and probably longest tee shot youʻve ever hit.
Buy one, put a wrap on it and go find your ball, itʻs in the fairway, ya- way down there.

IKYN, i hit one low and off the heel yesterday and had no idea where it went, couldnʻt pick up the flight of it. Found it about 230 out left edge of the fairway. And thatʻs just the G400, going to go buy a Max and pick another 4-5 yds.

I grabbed a G head before I bought a MAX.  I was hoping to save the money and get the performance... IMO, there is no comparison, for me.  The MAX is better in every way.  I hated the Dragonfly tech when it first came out, laughed at it and thought it was ugly.  Now, I don't see it as anything but an alignment aid and it has helped in that manner.  

The G head sounded and felt worse to me.  Not to say it won't perform in the right hands, but the MAX is just better in every way for me.

Six headcovers!  I'm currently carrying four G25 hybrids.  They're just too easy to hit.  I can hit pretty much any golf clubs reasonably well, but this year I've chosen to play clubs that make the game as easy as possible.  The driver has been the weakest link in that philosophy, until now.  I'm telling you, I hit one very low on the heel yesterday that should have been a top, but somehow it went at least 240 into a stiff breeze and found the right-center of the fairway.  I was totally flabbergasted.  I have a tour-issue Rogue silver 125 MSI I'm going to try in it, but the stock shaft is pretty good anyway.

I had a G400 LST...... Sold it and bought a Max......Liked the LST better so sold the Max and got another LST.........I did have  a one day love afare with the Max, but it didn't last for me........Who knows, with the right shaft I could give it another go.   On a side note, I always find it interesting to look at these threads from the past and look at what clubs posters are playing a couple months after they declare this or that the best that has ever been.....No magic bullet, but in my opinion, Ping makes as good a driver as anyone.

So, dumb question.

I like the forgiveness.  Hit it high and with a bit too much spin.  This was the 9 degree offering (I think) and the stock stuff.  

Assuming it spins a bit too much, have others seen results by going to the 8 degree?

I’m following your trend. Just picked up a G400 Max - thought the additional forgiveness would be perfect. After some fairly extensive testing I will be moving back to the G400 LST.  For me - there was a fairly significant difference in spin and distance between the two heads. It’s actually amazing how forgiving the G400 LST  is for what it produces. G400 Max LST please!!

I have a MAX @10.5 turned down to 9.5 with a aldila copperhead 70 TX tipped 1Ē.. ss 114 with neutral AOA and this driver is the straightest and farthest driver Iíve hit.. mid ball flight with incredible low spin 1900rm. Great rollout on morning dew covered fairways on offcentered hits still carries 85% (285)of my distance.. now that shaft woah one of the tightest and consistent shafts Iíve ever hit a perfect match for the g400max and donít confuse it for the stock ping copperhead/xtorsion the 70TX is a total different animal anyone with a 108-125 swingspeed will fall in love with this combo. 1900-2200 rpm of spin with a -1-+1 AOA speaks on its performance as point and shoot as a driver can be.

I saw the AD TP shaft in your signature. I am currently hitting the AD MJ but thinking about TP in the G400 max. Could you give any impressions on the shaft in the ping head? Thanks

Everyone said the same thing about the G30.  I bet it's not any better.

It's awesome!  A penetrating mid flight with a nice roll out.  If you're a higher spin player off the tee and want a mid-high flight you'll love it.  You can find them for a decent price on the Bay.

That's exactly what I am looking for. Hitting the G400 max good but would like to knock spin down.

I own the G400 and really like it a lot. Are you guys noting and hook tendency with the Max?

With the Max, no.  With the regular G400 I for sure had a hook issue.  Even with the same exact shaft.

Thatʻs what i thought, been playing the G30 since itʻs release. Demoʻd all the 400 series, theyʻre ALL longer, straighter and less noisy.
G30 is now in backup bag.
