Spotted: Ping G430 Max 10K driver

Published

on

There have been some rumblings about Ping releasing another addition to the G430 driver line, and we got confirmation that the company is doing so at the RSM Classic this week.

Introducing the Ping G430 Max 10K driver with a carbon crown. We don’t have any official details from Ping yet, so anything here is pure guesses based on the photos. That 10K number on the toe could refer to the total MOI number, adding both horizontal and vertical numbers. The horizontal MOI is limited by the USGA to 5,900 and most drivers hit that number long ago.

Ping has included the Carbonfly Wrap crown, just like on the G430 LST, in the G430 Max 10K as a way to move more weight from the crown to elsewhere in the head. The crown still includes Ping’s aerodynamic Turbulators and they might be slightly refined compared to the G430 Max driver. They looks just slightly different from the photos, but it could be lighting.

The sole of the new G430 Max 10K also looks to be more refined and smoother than the rest of the G430 line. This could be for aerodynamics, allowing better airflow for faster swinging of the club head. The rear of the sole also looks different as the center section looks lower and has a tungsten weight installed. The rear sides of the driver look to taper up quickly and be made from carbon fiber.

The 10K head shape overall looks to be a little shallower and flatter than the standard G430 Max, but we will see when we get the driver in our hands.

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max driver

Published

on

Callaway recently released the Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max Driver, and BK is ready to see where it stacks up in this week’s Three Swing Challenge!

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2 and discounted No. 3 because the player was starting to adjust.”
