    Isn't it unusual that no pros have the new driver in their bags yet? Usually you'll see the new version several months before the actual release, especially on this site.

    They may have been using them and they aren’t badged that way. But who knows. It is usually posted in the witb posts.

    Does anyone know if the 410 driver will be as forgiving or close thereto to the 400Max? Or is it just too early. Don’t see how they could improve on the 400Max, hope I am wrong.

    Odd as the Ping Tour shafts are not an upcharge in the UK. A bit mean on Ping Canada's behalf...

    Seems unlikely. A 50% increase for the next version ? That would be a lot for even Ping fans to swallow. Even $499 would be a considerable bump.

    ANY SITE GUIDANCE I OFFER, UNLESS SPECIFIED OTHERWISE, IS REFERRING TO THE "DESKTOP/FULL" VERSION

    Hybrids are $249 with Tensei Pro Blue 70 and EvenFlow Black 85.



    No word on actual release date yet.




    Will the fwys and hybrids be adjustable too?

    G410 in Jan-Feb. Won’t have an LST until summer. Higher MOI, More adjustablitly in hosel and adjustable/sliding weights similar to the others we all know. Will have LST fairway woods which is AWESOME. Love the G/G400 3 wood heads, but at the end of the day you can’t expect a high launching/spinning head design to be something it’s not (no matter what shaft goes in)...G400 LST has been an unbelievable for me personally




    Ping will have a LST version in their new fwys too?

    Don't know where the $599 price came from but all sku numbers at the store I work at are $499 for stock shaft options.

    Yes
    My local Ping rep said mid February to early March. Ping seams to be not in a big hurry to get them to retail.

    To throw our rep's info into the mix:



    Adjustable woods and hybrids, with loft being 1/1.5 degrees up and down. Also, two blank settings which do lie angle

    Forgiveness - Greater than the MAX, so there will be no G410 MAX (LST to follow later in the year)

    Shafts - Alta, Tour, (An Other that I forget), Pro Orange, Evenflow Black all at no extra cost

    Price - £399



    This is for us in the UK, might be different for you guys in the states

    Very excited about the fairways - found g400 too shallow and not hot enough vs. callaway in particular

    I would be absolutely shocked if they are offering the Pro version of the Tensei Orange shaft at no charge. My guess is the non-Pro.

    If the 410 version will be more forgiving than the G400 Max, I am listening very closely and eagerly anticipating the 410LST.

    Go read the flash forum - there’s a very good reason why the beans aren’t spilled. Because when it isn’t necessarily positive ( driver sound) the leak can go the other way and become negative out of the gate prior to official launch and the marketing machine in action
