Is the 410 line supposed to included an i series iron as well?  Too soon for that isn't it?

I was told today that this new driver is going to be $599.

Irrefutable evidence!

Isn't it unusual that no pros have the new driver in their bags yet?  Usually you'll see the new version several months before the actual release, especially on this site.

They may have been using them and they aren’t badged that way.  But who knows. It is usually posted in the witb posts.

Does anyone know if the 410 driver will be as forgiving or close thereto to the 400Max?   Or is it just too early.  Donít see how they could improve on the 400Max, hope I am wrong.

Odd as the Ping Tour shafts are not an upcharge in the UK. A bit mean on Ping Canada's behalf...

Seems unlikely. A 50% increase for the next version ? That would be a lot for even Ping fans to swallow. Even $499 would be a considerable bump.

I hope that $599 price includes any upgraded shaft of your choosing...

G410 is retailing for $499. Tensei CK Series 60 Orange and EvenFlow Black 75 are both no cost upgrade shafts.

Fairways are $289 with Tensei CK Orange 70 and EvenFlow Black 85.

Hybrids are $249 with Tensei Pro Blue 70 and EvenFlow Black 85.

No word on actual release date yet.

Will the fwys and hybrids be adjustable too?

I like where you head is at with that, but this is Ping.  Not exactly known for an enjoyable shaft upgrade experience.

G410 in Jan-Feb. Won’t have an LST until summer. Higher MOI, More adjustablitly in hosel and adjustable/sliding weights similar to the others we all know. Will have LST fairway woods which is AWESOME. Love the G/G400 3 wood heads, but at the end of the day you can’t expect a high launching/spinning head design to be something it’s not (no matter what shaft goes in)...G400 LST has been an unbelievable for me personally

Ping will have a LST version in their new fwys too?

My local Ping rep said mid February to early March. Ping seams to be not in a big hurry to get them to retail.
