    What's the general consensus on the best shaft for the 400 Max? Currently game the M4 with Evenflow Blue shaft. As someone mentioned in the M3/4 not selling thread there's lots of the Max drivers out there - at my club I haven't seen one yet and wondered what the most popular shafts are for it?



    I'm going to PGASS next week to give this a hit and see how it performs but it'd be good to know what combination works well.

    So today I hit a borrowed G400Max vs the Wilson Staff C300 driver...2 drives with each on each hole...nobody out there but me because I like to possibly die in excessive heat. The C300 no doubt hit farther on both center and off-center hits. My C300 has a 58g Speeder shaft....the Ping shaft is stock stiff. Look, both are great clubs...I just find the C300 to be as better based on testing.

    Has anyone moved from the G to the G400 Max? I interested in any feedback. Worth the change?




    I went from the G to the G400 Max. The sound is better and seems more forgiving. Using Tour 65 shaft.

    Everyone said the same thing about the G30. I bet it's not any better.




    Measurably it is. They jumped up a level in MOI over their already high MOI drivers which means more forgiveness on off center hits whether you like the driver or not.

    It’s actually amazing how forgiving the G400 LST is for what it produces. G400 Max LST please!!




    It's not likely something like a Max LST would be put out since they are conflicting ideas. The LST heads have their center of gravity further forward which lowers launch and spin at the expense of some forgiveness. The Max head has the center of gravity as far back as possible to increase forgiveness and raise launch at the expense of raising spin a bit. Any hybrid between these two ideas from a marketing standpoint would be somewhat redundant given that what you would have at that point would basically be the G400 standard.

    Don't all drivers have to conform to a COR of 0.83? If so, then folks are getting more distance on their particular miss. Incoming!




    None of this has anything to do with COR as that is only one variable in the whole equation. PING pushed their normal design philosophy even further with pretty insane MOI numbers throughout the G400 lineup making easily the most forgiving driver available.




    It may be low spinning for pros, but for us hacks with a negative seven AoA, we need a LST version.




    As was said, all negative AoA does is change dynamic loft. Strike for strike/loft for loft your spin will not be any higher. However a negative 7* AoA would be really hard to get the correct launch with but that is a separate problem.

    If your swing is adaptable enough to accomplish both, you would see it does effect spin.......it is why long drive champions try to achieve +7 to + 8 AoA. My comfortable grooved driver swing is a negative 2, use to be closer to a 3. I get 2200-2400 spin out of my setup. If I increase my AoA to a +3 with this same setup I drop down to 1800 spin.




    Long drive guys have insane AoA because they HAVE to with the 4-5* drivers they use, it has nothing to do with spin.

    I have owned them all, ask my wallet.



    The GMax is the best driver that I have ever owned period.



    Unbelievably accurate for me and I pound it.



    Never want to say that this is my last driver since I have owned hundreds of them, but there is nothing out now that could knock it out of the bag.

    I do wish that PING would move away from all this Dragonfly/Turbulator/Vortec stuff because it really feels like gimmicky marketing fluff on top of an otherwise very solid underlying design philosophy. The G400 drivers are a measurable step up since MOI is the number to be measured. Its refreshing in an environment where lots of the supposed new "tech" is somewhat vague and hard to quantify, things like Twist Face, Jailbreak, and the above mentioned Dravorbulators. I am looking forward to trying and potentially bagging one of these G400s as my "tight course" driver since the M1 430 is quite unforgiving.

    Can someone explain why the g400 Max is better/more forgiving/longer than say the g30 or the g? They are all 460cc and have some sort of turbulator technology. Is it the internal weighting? Is the Alta gold shaft better than the Alta blue shaft or the tfc419 shaft?

    The G400 Max is the highest MOI driver on the market by a wide margin and the highest Ping has ever produced. That will in theory add forgiveness, I played them all including the G and for me it is indeed more stable. That's not lip service either I would not say it if I didn't mean it. In regards to length based on a proper setup everyone's mileage will vary. BB

    As Big Ben said, it is the highest MOI driver on the market by a significant margin (even over some previous PING offerings!) which I would say is not theoretical, it is factually more forgiving. Higher MOI = slower head twisting on off center hits which = less gear effect forces applied to the ball which = tighter dispersion and better ball speeds anywhere outside the exact sweet spot. All of this is accomplished by weight savings throughout the design allowing for more weight to be thrown all the way to the back of the head which increases the MOI. There is far far more to the equation than simply "these are all 460cc". You could make a 460cc driver that is as unforgiving as a Persimmon wood if you wanted to. You could also make one with insanely expensive composite materials to create a massively lightweight head with a much more significant portion of its weight in the rear creating a driver that practically feels like a sweet spot wherever you hit it, but the USGA has placed a limit on MOI (which PING came extremely close to with the G400 MAX) and even if they hadn't, a driver like that, at least today, would likely be prohibitively expensive.

    Oddly same here....my first ping in at least 7yrs...either too loud not better or actually worse than other clubs to me on market. This 400 fam changes everything, the regular 400 is the least used oddly. The max is soooooo good and low spin while being straight with high bombs. My lst flies lower, is a little more workable with smaller head and only about 170 to 200rps less spin and almost 400 less than the 400 regular.

    i hit a ball so high and off the toe that it should've shot to the other fairway. Guess what it did. Started right of target and drew back into the fairway. And only 5 yards less that my first ball I played that I struck perfectly. I was in shock.

    Well i did a first today, walked into my favourite golf store and 10 mins later walked out with a new driver the G400 Max.



    Didn't try out every driver in the store, actually never even took one swing. Snagged er off the rack and off i went.



    9 degree tour stiff [only stiff model they had]



    Lots of great reviews on the 400 Max, played with a fellow last night that was smoking a G400.



    Can't wait to try it out.

    I finally took mine to the course yesterday for the maiden voyage.

    More consistent and just as forgiving and long as my F8. Higher ballflight as others have said.

    I do not like loud drivers and it is not a concern with me at all.

    It’s not as quiet as the Cobra, but no where close to the G series either. Should not be an issue with most golfers.

    Certainly a larger footprint than my G400 standard head and the F8, but not off-putting in any way.

    Just a great driver that will fit well into thr game of most golfers.

    I do tend to agree with the opinion that it is a bit draw biased, as my flight has move more to the left a bit, but very marginally.

    Although the Tour 65X worked for me, I would like to try an Even flowing this head.

    Has anyone tried the Kuro Kage XD in the Max? If you go with a non CB or backweighted shaft in the Max does that make the head feel heavier or lighter? That always gets me confused.

    Lol.



    I have a DC XT 70 TX in the G400 Max and its an excellent combo. From all the accounts, XD is even more lower launch/spin vs. the DC XT, so safe to assume that it will play awesome in this head.

    What's the general consensus on the best shaft for the 400 Max? Currently game the M4 with Evenflow Blue shaft. As someone mentioned in the M3/4 not selling thread there's lots of the Max drivers out there - at my club I haven't seen one yet and wondered what the most popular shafts are for it?

    IMHO there is no such thing because there are too many variables with the Indian.

    Drank the kool aid, mine came in yesterday. If I can't find the fairway, I am blaming all of you people.

    Well i did a first today, walked into my favourite golf store and 10 mins later walked out with a new driver the G400 Max.






    did the same thing today - kind of lol. the buzz around this thing had me in the pro shop today and i have one on order = G400 Max 9* with stock Alta CB in X Flex. I have the standard Ping G and keep seeing reports on how much better the G400 Max is. I just want to hit more fairways - I get it out there far enough.
    Lots of Buzz on the Max, i should have tried a few and ordered one but i had some trade value that was only good for in stock items only. I have a G30 and have been hitting my 910 d2 pretty good, but i could use all the help i can get. Going hard on the Ping, i200's are pretty sweet, fairway woods next.



    What's the story on the stock Alta CB ?

    I love mine..I’ve owned the base, lst, and max, the max may not get out there quite as far when striped as the lst, but it’s marginal and the forgiveness makes it a no brainer...great club...

    Geez, after reading so much about the MAX, I am really tempted. image/einstein.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':beruo:' /> But my Fusion might get mad at me. image/dntknw.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':dntknw:' />

    I kinda feel like the Max is the single must try for anyone in the market for a driver. No driver has made such an impression on me when I first tested it. If you can find a setup that works for you, I believe it's as good as everyone says. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a shaft that I liked to work with the Max.

    I was hitting the MAX too high with the Alta CB and even a Tour 80. Angle of decent was too steep.



    Swapped in a NV2kxv green and got my trajectory down proper. Still point and shoot
