Spotted: Ping G400 Fairway Woods, Hybrids and Crossover

Published

on

At the U.S. Open, we captured photos of Ping’s G400 Fairway Woods, Hybrids and Crossover. We also spotted Ping’s new G400 driver, as well as a custom version that Bubba Watson could use this week at Erin Hills.

Ping isn’t sharing any details about the clubs at this time, but judging from the photos, there are several important changes to the clubs.

Like the G400 Drivers, the G400 fairway woods appear to emphasize low, rearward weighting as evidenced by the copper-colored weights on the back of the sole. Both the G400 fairway woods and hybrids also use “Turbulators” on their crowns, which were said to improve aerodynamics in past Ping releases.

The G400 Crossovers, which are hot-faced, oversized irons specifically designed to bridge the gap in a golfer’s bag between their shortest-flying fairway wood and their longest-flying iron, appear to have been given tungsten weighting on the toe portion of the soles. The additional of tungsten is generally used to lower center of gravity (CG) and improve moment of inertia (MOI), a measure of forgiveness.

    Still no adjustable loft in hybrids. Missed opportunity there. I may buy the new driver but doubtful upgrading to the new fairways & hybrid.

    Why do people come to words about something that has no reason to be argued over. If you don’t like it,,, don’t hit it,, why make some one think they are not as smart as you because you don’t think they are what you would play. I don’t like the Number one Golf Ball in the world but I don’t call all the players on tour stupid for playing them, or tell all of the other amateurs they are brainless for playing them. Just shut up and let people be who they are and play what they want to play. One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor.

    So complete wrong about the path-to-toe-weight interpretation, no wonder you keep asking questions about which you know nothing. And that’s OK, keep asking silly questions, it shows you really are a numbskull.
    If Ping believed in the toe weight situation, why create the CTP and place that in the middle of the head at the back of the face for swingweighting purposes, dummy? If good golfers preferred MBs, then why wouldn’t Ping make one without the CTP and have a blade with just tungsten, like everybody else?
    Wow, are you totally mental

      Word-for-word, that was my first thought/question.

      The Crossovers do have a lot of offset, just like the previous model

What GolfWRXers are saying about Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods. WRXer ‘Kale_m’ is in the market for a fairway wood and reaches out to fellow members for feedback on the Mizuno ST-Z, and our members have been sharing their reviews of the club in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • bryanwmilburn: “I have the 3 wood with Ventus Black 7X, and it’s the best fairway I’ve ever owned.”
  • JMB83: “I played the 3 wood with Ventus Blue 6s this past weekend, and it was a weapon off the tee. I really like the deep face for that purpose, and I appreciate the more neutral to open setup at 14*. The feel is unbelievable too.”
  • JDW3: “Got mine out on the course today. I hit it really well off the deck and off the tee. I really like that the lie angle is a little flatter. Looking forward to getting out this weekend to get in some more testing.”
  • Kale_m: “Ummmm, this thing is a cannon…Best looking 3w ever though. Turned it down a notch, and it sits perfect. A hook is my miss with the 3w. Not 1 with this in about 15 balls I hit.”

Srixon ZX7 vs Srixon 785 irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been pitting Srixon’s ZX7 irons against the brand’s 785 irons. WRXer ‘AbSWFPGA’ is currently playing the company’s 745 irons and reaches out to members for feedback on the ZX7’s and 785’s, and WRXers have been sharing their experiences with both in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tssgj65: “I played the 785 last season. Went ahead and bought the ZX7 because of the hype. Same shaft in both, but for whatever reason, I am back with the 785. Probably no different than any other iron change, but as of now, I feel more confident with the 785’s.”
  • KPH808: “I’ve had both sets with the same shafts as well. I prefer the 785s, but the ZX7s look much better. I had the 785s in the bag for a while, but the ZX7s lasted only a few rounds.”
  • ace036: “I had the ZX7’s and also ended up going back to my Z785’s. I prefer the shape and longer blade length appearance of the Z785’s. The slightly wider sole works better for me as well.”
  • Haber: “I’ve had my Z785’s for almost 2 years now. Hoping I can go a couple more without switching. I recently demoed the zx7 and the apex pro for fun. Zx7 felt very similar and looked fantastic. Apex pro launched higher and carried a little further, but the sound and feel of the cup face made them an instant turn off. Couldn’t discern too much between the 2 Srixon offerings, so I will be sticking with my z785’s until the next round of temptation hits. I will say dollar for dollar Srixon irons are the best value in the golf market. Hundreds cheaper than the other guys and amazing quality.”
