A Ping G400 Max driver appears on the USGA conforming clubs list

Published

on

In 2017, Ping launched its G400 drivers, which included a standard model, a fade-biased LS Tec model and a draw-biased SF Tec driver. Now, it appears there’s another G400 version coming: a G400 Max driver.

As of Monday, Jan. 8, there’s a new Ping G400 Max driver listed on the USGA Conforming Clubs list. The drivers are listed in 9 and 10.5 degree models, and in both right and left-handed options.

The “Max” nomenclature has historically been synonymous with forgiveness for Ping, so it’s likely this is a higher MOI (moment of inertia) offering in the G400 series. While the G400 drivers measure 445cc, maybe Max in this circumstance means they will measure 460cc? That remains to be seen, but we’ll be on the lookout for more information when it’s available.

    2017 models: Ping G400 driver standard model… fade-biased LS Tec model… draw-biased SF Tec driver.
    Should I buy one of each to cover all the ball flights?!!
    Now, it appears there’s another G400 version coming: a G400 Max driver. It may be 460cc for more MOI to compensate for off-center hits and hooks and slices?
    OMG… when will it stop !!!!!

Published

It’s that time of year again, GolfWRX members, the moment we start filling our wish lists with the golf gear we want this holiday season.

The GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide was created to ensure that our readers give (and hopefully receive) the very best golf gifts on the planet. These gift ideas will suit any budget, and each item was hand-picked by our staff.

In an effort to provide more value and tailored recommendations, we’re presenting our guide as a series this year, targeting “the purist,” “the gearhead,” “the value seeker,” “the golfer looking to improve,” “the clothes horse,” and “the big spender.”

You know the golfer looking to get better by his/her closet full of every infomercial training aid and a pursuit of forgiveness that would put the most penitent sinner to shame.

Here are our best recommendations for “the clothes horse” in your life.
