Iíve used Ping G20 woods for the past 6 years and I finally upgraded to the new G400s. I got fit at Ping and the experience was amazing. I know everyone always says to get your clubs fit and it couldnít be more true. My previous driver was getting me around 270 yards on a good drive. After getting fit I was hitting it 290+ with the same swing! I know the new technology helps but getting fit and finding the proper loft and shaft is key!

Iíve used this putter since 2012 and taken good care of it. Iíve always liked a small mallet putter for the forgiveness but like a plumbers neck like an Anser so this fit the bill!

Iíve always liked Ping fairway woods since they have a lower profile than most. The G400 is the shallowest yet and sits very flat on the ground making it easy to hit off the fairway. I struggle with fairway woods that have a deep/tall face off the turf. This bad boy is like cheating off the ground.

Like those clubs, but for the shafts.  Way too stiff for an old guy, love the irons, somehow tend to be underrated.

Yes netural at 9 degrees and it sits very square. My previous G20 sat a little closed.

Coincidentally I still have the G20, I love the feel but I have always struggled with finding the left side of the Fairway. The reason why on my new purchase I want to make sure the driver is actually neutral if not a fraction open.
