Apologies to Ping! The G410 is the best looking driver I have ever seen!

    I think the 410 doesn’t look good at all. It’s a bit too bulbous for my taste. I can’t get that fish tail out of my mind when I look at it either. I much prefer the more angular look of the 400.




    Each to their own - if you think it's too bulbous then I wonder what you thought of the G5, G10,G15, G20, G25, G30... Oh and the fish tail is one of the best things. What an aerodynamic master piece. This is the Formula 1 of golf drivers. We should also not forget the Ping logo was gold plated chrome what a truly stunning look for a logo. No OEM has every done such a fine job with their logo. Also the G410 sign was more pronounced with Ping placing it in the centre. This is a bold statement and shows they are proud and confident of the G410 model. If you compare the G400 they all but hid the G400 sign making it inconspicuous, as if to say "hey guys try this out and see if you like it but in case its not good you will forget what ping model it was"



    As for the G400 - its boring but functional. I hear it sounds awful too. In fairness, the most important thing for most people is performance, therefore I guess one can describe the G400 as the loyal dependable and plain wife. Great for most people but not for me, I want ****, I want vivacious, I want titillation and that final celebration and that's everything that G410 offers.

    So I made a dumb thread questioning if Ping had ever made a good looking driver, in fairness this was before I saw pics of the G410 in the other thread. I am shocked! So shocked that they could produced something that looks so mean, so ****, so.... (lost of words here!) I am 100% convinced they have a new design team.



    100% buying this driver! I don't care who it feels or plays I am just going to buy it period!!! When does it come out?




    That matte finish on the bottom is gonna get beat to s***! What's the rest of it look like?




    The 400s are matte on the bottom and seem to hold up really well. That said, I am not much of a fan of the looks of the 410 so far and I can not see it outperforming the 400 by much if at all, but hoping to be proved wrong.




    I was goofing. I love the looks of the Ping woods.

    Thanks for the video. I am waiting for the spring to get fit for new driver and irons. Thought it would be G400max, but will check out the G410. But those turbulator bumps on to are too big to look at. Im sure I can make it work if it performs, but man!!



    Also, the colors look for orange than red. Was look forward to the Red/black theme matching my current covers. But those colors look more like orange.

    I’m actually surprised. I think they did a great job with the G400 series (although the retro-ish color scheme took a bit to love). I was hoping the G410 would improve on that but I think this is a step in the wrong direction.

    I love Ping drivers. Especially the g400 lst and max, but i refuse to buy a driver with any red on it. Also like the new Srixon, but wont even test it bc it has red on it! Redoing the paintfill doesnt really isnt really a resolution either of im spending $400 plus on a driver.

    I would hit a solid brown (doo-doo brown) before it hit one with red! Shafts and grips are another story.

    I am a big Ping fan. But how somebody thinks the older models look hideous but this one looks great is beyond me. From a cosmetic standpoint, in my opinion this isn't one of their better efforts. To each his own though.

    Jeez, I think this is the most ambiguous statement of preference I’ve seen on the board in all these years.



    Where does that fall on the spectrum? Is it left of guys in satin shorts playing volleyball listening to Miley Cyrus, or is it in the other direction? 🤔 Like Phil and Billy Mayfair in their college days. Wait a minute. Maybe that’s Charlie Hoffman.

    I really dislike the g410 looks. Found the sole of the g400 much more clean




    You want clean, safe and angular designs with gender neutral colour schemes? Bad news Ping has moved on! Tired of being the safe, unsexy and favourite of middle management staff, it's looking to step up and join the Alpha males favourite clubs. (The Titleist and Mizuno). The G410 now projects a strong, masculine look and would no doubt be attracting a new bold following. CEO's, hedge fund owners, men in power etc. For all the ping users welcome to the change #WeToo
