Ok so what do we know so far (recap post from this thread and the G410 thread in the main equipment section):
  • G410 is coming in Jan/Feb 2019
  • LS model in May – conflicting posts..one said it will not be offered, another said it will and another said it comes in a later release.
  • G400 Max remains current until July/Aug 2019 at a lower price point
  • G410 will be offered in 12* without draw weighting (yeah for me !!)
  • Higher MOI than G400
  • Red colorway
  • 455cc 445cc
  • Sliding weigh in the back Movable weights (not sure if this means to adjust the bias) or just in terms of a single weight that is swapable for a heavier or lighter weight.
  • New adapter  +/- 1° and 1.5°, as well as having a flatter lie angle setting.
updated for poppman's corrections

3 Wood: Callaway XR Pro 3 w/ Fujikura Motore Speeder Tour Spec 7.2X)

Sliding weight in the back

Something similar to the GBB and Epic (side to side) or more similar to TM's Y track (front to back and less side to side than Callaway)?

G400 will remain at a lower price point

So profile will resemble G400 MAX more then the normal G400 now?

Will there will be 2 models?

G410 = 'Regular model' fixed weight?

G410 Plus will be adjustable ala Epic? No SFT because of this?

Can the LS model be adjusted to have the face sit neutral, due to the new adapter? Would have gotten the LS model in 2017 but can't play an open faced driver..

I could be wrong but understood it as:
G410 - Jan/February 455cc sliding weight (no need for Sf tec)
G410 LS 455cc. Forward weight - May release
G410 Plus 460cc (later date).

There actually is a SFT model as well.  The weight isn't moveable in it, and is fixed in place toward the heel, like most/all draw bias drivers.  Non moveable weight to allow the MOI to be maxed out.

They are all referred to as the G410 Plus.  The entire line...drivers that is.

Just picked up the G400 MAX and it’s amazing. Glad to hear it’s not being phased out just yet.

Very interested to see how they have improved... like many others on this thread, I can't imagine anything beating out my G400 LST. All season this club has dominated. Its actually unexplainable how consistent and well performing this club has been for me. Ping has just been on fire lately and seems to be dominating every part of their lineup!

Ok so what do we know so far (recap post from this thread and the G410 thread in the main equipment section):
  • G410 is coming in Jan/Feb 2019
  • LS model – conflicting posts..one said it will not be offered, another said it will and another said it comes in a later release.
  • G400 Max remains current until July/Aug 2019
  • G410 will be offered in 12* without draw weighting (yeah for me !!)
  • Higher MOI than G400
  • Red colorway
  • 445cc
  • Movable weights (not sure if this means to adjust the bias) or just in terms of a single weight that is swapable for a heavier or lighter weight.
  • New adapter  +/- 1° and 1.5°, as well as having a flatter lie angle setting.

400 max $399
400 $299

Does anyone know when this price drop is going to happen? I'm currently looking for a used G400 LST. But, since our season is pretty much over, I can afford to wait. Don't know how long my will power will hold up though.

There actually is a SFT model as well.  The weight isn't moveable in it, and is fixed in place toward the heel, like most/all draw bias drivers.  Non moveable weight to allow the MOI to be maxed out.

Typically those SFT models have a little lower MOI than the 'Max' or standard versions, due to the weight being concentrated in the heel instead of as far back as possible.  So if the 410 SFT model has a 5900 MOI that would be interesting.

Is the G400 Max really draw biased? I am guessing that it would be bad for someone with issues missing to the left. I was very interested too until I read that.

I just don't follow their releases close enough to remember these things.  If they are releasing a new model in January, I figured they would drop the price a bit before that.  That wouldn't be a terribly long wait.

How much better can we expect the 410 max to be than the G?
