Ping introduces new G430 fairway woods and hybrids

Published

on

Ping Golf has today unveiled its new G430 fairway woods and hybrids for 2023.

In all of the G430 fairway woods and hybrids, Ping developed Carbonfly Wrap in a bid to deliver more distance by positioning the CG closer to the force line in design to maximize ball speed, resulting in higher, longer carries, in both the MAX and SFT model.

The lightweight composite crown wraps into the heel and toe sections of the skirt, creating weight savings of 10 grams, which are reallocated to achieve the lower CG and increase ball speed. The composite also plays a role in the pleasing sound, while tungsten backweight extends the perimeter weighting in design to ensure forgiveness.

Also included in the new additions is Facewrap technology – a variable-thickness, high-strength maraging-steel face that wraps into the sole and crown of the stainless-steel head, generating more flexing in design for faster ball speed and higher launch for greater distance.

The variable roll radius of Spinsistency bids to improve performance across the face (especially on thin shots) by reducing spin in design to increase ball speed from the maraging-steel face. 

The fairway MAX fits the widest range of golfers with four options, while the slightly larger head size of the SFT is offered in three lofts with lighter swingweights to help square the face at impact. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 provides eight hosel positions, adjusting for loft (±1.5 degrees) and lie (up to 3 degrees flatter than std.)
