PING G400 Max Driver Review
REVIEW: PING G400 Max
The G400 is already a smash hit of driver, it is the highest MOI on the market, making it very straight, but no only that, it was also, long, really long. So, it was a surprise when PING announced a new addition to the family. The G400 Max will arrive later in 2018 and promises to increase the MOI even further via a larger, more stable head.
The question is, can you still gain the same performance as the G400, the same hot feel and low spin? We recently headed to the course to put the PING G400 Max to the test:
WOW! PING have created a monster in the G400 Max, you can loft down due to the tugsten weight being so far back and so low and the spin is low as well, combine these characteristics and a decent swing speed and you have some great launch conditions.
While the G400 Max is long, it is also extremely forgiving, it very straight and very stable. The club refuses to twist through the shot, so while your mishits might not look or feel pretty, they do stand a decent chance of finding the short stuff.
All in all this is an amazing driver, you may need to some speed to really get the most from it, but it is a huge addition to the range and I would not be surprised to see this being the best seller of the G400 family. The sound and looks could be a bit better, but I am splitting hairs there.
Watch out of this one, you will be seeing a lot of it in 2018!
PING G400 Max Specifications and Pricing
In the G400 Max driver, PING achieved its all-time high MOI measurements by optimising the crown and face design in the larger-profile, multi-material head. The forgiveness gains are attributable to the 460cc head and nearly four times the discretionary weight created by Dragonfly crown technology and the thin, forged face. Its high-density tungsten back weight wraps around the back of the sole to help bring the combined MOI
