Ping G410 LST: Low spin offering joins G410 family

Published

on

Ping Golf has today added to its G410 driver family, introducing the Ping G410 LST, which according to the company, is a high-MOI driver engineered to produce low and stable spin.

The new addition from Ping features the same movable-weight technology found in the G410 Plus model. With the G410 LST model, however, the CG position has been moved slightly forward in all three areas (draw, neutral, fade) which aims to promote spin reduction of approximately 200 to 400 rpm, depending on shaft choice and a golfer’s launch conditions.

Each weight position shifts the CG location by 1/10″ in each direction from neutral, influencing left or right shot direction approximately 10 yards, and speaking on the moveable-weight technology featured in the G410 LST, John K. Solheim, Ping President stated

“The addition of the movable-weight technology in our low-spin driver option allows us to fit a wider range of golfers. A perfect example is a high-swing-speed player who battles a miss to the right. In that case, the combination of placing the weight in the draw position and the lower spin greatly improves dispersion and leads to increased ball speed for more distance.”

The club also features Dragonfly Technology on the inside, designed to create an ultra-thin crown structure, saving weight, which is moved to the extreme boundary of the clubhead to increase the MOI by 3% (compared to the G400 LST) for added ball speed and forgiveness.

The G410 LST driver head (450cc) contains a more rounded, pear-shaped design which combined with Turbulator Technology aims to provide for added clubhead speed, while the face of the club sits slightly open and the score-line pattern frames the impact area in a bid to offer players improved alignment.

The lightweight and adjustable hosel of the G410 LST expands from five to eight settings, offering loft (0, +1º, +1.5º, -1º, -1.5º) and lie adjustments (up to 3º flatter than standard) which seek to optimize ball flight.

Speaking concerning the G410 LST’s new technologies and benefits, Solheim said

“The head size is slightly smaller than the Plus model and the CG is positioned to reduce spin several hundred rpms while still providing extremely high forgiveness. The combination of lower spin and more stability plus the ability to dial in the shot shape with our movable-weight technology greatly expands the types of golfers who can benefit from the technology of the G410 LST driver.

As always, we encourage golfers to undergo a thorough custom fitting with a trained PING Fitting Specialist to determine which G410 driver model best fits their game.”

    So was it disingenuous when the 410 came out and Ping said there was no new LST because they won’t release a newer model unless it’s better than the previous model (and everyone praised them as wonderful) or is Ping’s engineering, design, production and distribution so good that within a few months they were magically able to get the 410 LST to market ?

    Just bought the 410 Plus and couldn’t be happier but I had no idea this was around the corner. I’m guessing the Plus is the more forgiving option?

      I purchased the 410 plus with a GD BB in it and my spin rate is already only 2400-ish…I don’t need it any lower

Puma unveils new Ignite Fasten8 golf shoe

Published

on

Puma Golf has today introduced the newest addition to its popular spikeless franchise: the Ignite Fasten8.

The new Ignite Fasten8 ($120) family are designed to provide wearers added stability with a new, exacting fit in multiple sleek designs, featuring both a traditional lace-up style and Puma’s proprietary DISC technology, and also a PRO version with a microfiber upper. The Fasten8 lace version is also available in several eye-catching colorways for women ($100).

The lineup is led by Puma’s new Fasten8 Fit System, which consists of 8 interior webbing support straps that are integrated into the lacing system. The 8 webbing straps are secured from underneath the foot, and when the laces, or Disc, are tightened, each of the Fasten8 straps aims to deliver an exceptionally secure, personalized fit for players with all foot shapes and sizes.

The Fasten8 also features PWRCAGE (a TPU saddle integrated with midfoot support webbing straps), and PWRFRAME (an ultra-thin TPU frame placed in high-stress areas) technologies, both of which are designed to contribute to greater overall stability during the swing and increased comfort while walking. 

Speaking on the new additions from Puma, Andrew Lawson, PLM, Footwear, Puma Golf said

“The new Ignite Fasten8 shoe continues to deliver the cool, classic style that has become synonymous with PUMA Golf, in a popular mix of colorways that will appeal to a wide range of playersWhen you combine our innovative new Fasten8 Fit System with Puma’s other impressive footwear technologies you have a shoe that delivers true versatility, style and performance, all while ensuring the perfect fit and feel for every golfer.” 

Enhanced comfort and performance in a variety of turf conditions (or even for wear off the course) is provided by a strategically designed, organically-altered traction pattern in the sole, as well as IGNITE Foam in the midsole, which bids to yield energy return and cushioning throughout the course of 18 holes.

The Fasten8 shoe also features a non-stretch, waterproof and breathable mesh construction in the forefoot area, which bids to provide versatile performance in varying weather conditions and SoleShield, a micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the midsole to make cleaning off dirt and debris quick and easy. In addition, the Fasten8 Pro features a microfiber upper for style and performance.

Puma’s Ignite Fasten8 and Ignite Fasten8 Disc are available in six colorways in sizes 7-14. Ignite Fasten8 Pro is available in five colorways in the same size range, while Ignite Fasten8 Women’s is available in sizes 5.5-12 in four colorways.

Vokey launches new Slate Blue finish on SM8 wedges

Published

on

Looks are important when it comes to having confidence in your clubs, and with that in mind, Titleist is releasing a new Slate Blue finish for its Vokey SM8 wedge line.

The slate blue finish is applied just like a standard PVD (physical vapor deposition) finish but involves using a unique material that increases the production time. The result of the material and additional time is a rich deep finish that not only looks great but also has a longer life compared to traditional PVD.

“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

When it comes to technology the Slate Blue Vokey wedges offer the same progressive forward center of gravity for increased MOI and ball flight control, along with 100-percent inspected spin milled grooves.

Price and availability

Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops starting March 19, and will be available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options in both right and left-handed.

The wedges will be priced at $199 in their stock configuration which features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip from Golf Pride.

Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee.
