    I keep saying .... I don't know what Ping can do to improve their G400 driver, it's the best product I've ever hit over the past 25 years. As for their other woods, hybrids & irons, I imagine they'll come up with some trick to get WRX's to try & buy next year.

    What do you mean already? The G400 came out summer 17. Ping is on an 18 month product cycle. That's common knowledge.

    You are correct, there will be a G410 and G410 Plus



    Details are unknown atm



    Release date is still up in the air from what I thought but January wouldn’t surprise me, seems like they’re going the PXG route and not planning on sticking with release cycles and just bringing out new tech as it comes along.

    The G500 will be 100 units better. With a reduced crown weight, lower and more rearward COG, 10-way adjustable hosel, counterbalanced shaft, 12 grip options and a hidden weight in the head made of unobtanium, this driver will be faster, straighter and longer than any driver ever produced.

    probably g410 or g500 based on their most recent releases

    They have -1.5 adapters. I have one. But it's tour only
  • WoodersonWooderson Posts: 1,970 ✭✭
    Please please let the new driver have a adapter system like Callaway and Titleist but only if it maintains a small diameter and weight. I think Ping engineers can make that happen.

    Talking with my rep the other day, and he said first of February, but wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up being end of January. No Ls model as they could not improve upon current, so should come later down the pipeline. He was impressed with it, but it my mind going to be hard to top G400
  • PowderedToastManPowderedToastMan Members Posts: 3,734 ✭✭
    Should just delay the release and stick with G400. Seems crazy to replace such a hot product unnecessarily.

    In the bag:

    PING. Lots of PING.

    Oh no....I really hope that's wrong and there is a LST model coming in the line, to at least hopefully drop the price of the G400 LST.

    I am hoping the new TS drivers may unseat my g400, but the Max can't even do it, so skeptical on anything doing it.....

    Phew! I was about to b**** and moan about now having to wait till January to buy a new driver but ideally I need the lower spinning option.

    Not sure how they improve the G400 line, should be interesting.

    The only improvment i could envision is a SFT model in the G400Max and/or 12* degree model. Maybe cosmetics, like a different color~shifting shaft, Don’t mess with the turbulators and dragonfly tech, i enjoy the extra 3 mph an 5-7 yds. : /

    Add a high loft neutral weighted option for us low spin low launch slower swingers. Would absolutely Game a 13.5 G400Max without draw weighting.

    It'll take a lot to get my G400 out of the bag. Going from an Epic SZ to M3 to this...There isn't anything better out there right now and I've tried most of them all (minus Mizuno).



    Intrigued to see what may still come.
