    I'm a much bigger fan of the G400... I just can't get on with the looks of the 410, but it took me a while with the G400, so....



    It's just so early to tell but these early reviews ALWAYS seem to indicate a slight increase in performance. In about 6 months maybe we will again be having the talk about how drivers are maxed out and this one really is no better, other than adjustability, than the G400. I love me some Ping, but they would have had to do something spectacular to upgrade me from the G400 and this doesn't seem to be it.



    Am I correct in seeing that the adjustable weight only has three setting and it's not a sliding weight like that Callaway or TM have? That would also be kind of lame...

    You already knew there would be negligible to slight increases in performance, so what were you expecting?

    I was expecting it to look a little better for my personal preferences. Pretty simple really, thought I stated that in my post.

    If I read correctly and the 410 can go 3* flatter from 58.5

    The 410 plus = 410SFT. Might as well just bench the SFT model and only offer the plus.



    I like the look. I like the colors. The price is a bit ridiculous for such little change and actually a jump if I'm not mistaken for the original 400 at $400.



    We are getting a refined top, same face, different styling on the sole, different shaft / adapter fitting and the weight mobility (which you can only put it in 3 options at Neutral, Draw, and Fade). I don't know if that's worth a price jump but, I also don't have the hookup at Ping. I wouldn't pay full price for it.



    I look forward to putting one on a monitor and hopefully out at the range.




    Can't bench the SFT. It is 50% more heel biased, and the face in the neutral setting is closed. The head weight and swing weight are lighter.



    It is a good club for an older, or weaker golfer who generally hits a slice or push fade. That might be 90% of golfers, and certainly not the majority of players on this site. The player that just wants to buy a driver off the rack that works, without worrying about adjusting weights and face angles.

    One other tidbit is that if you put the weight in the Draw setting on the G410 Plus, it's the same draw bias as the previous generation G400 SFT.



    The new G410 SFT (as you state) will have a more pronounced draw bias, and that has ruled it out for me.

    New adapter is not backward compatible with old heads.

    I'm not sure PING will release a G410 LST, they've said the G400 is good enough and they can't currently beat it.

    That is lame. You are left with two open holes where the weight is not positioned. Cheesy. Sticking with the G400 LST.

    If the holes go straight through to the head I can see dirt or debris possibly finding its way in and it does look a little unfinished to me... It just seems a little cheap to not be able to slide the weight in between the set positions.



    This is not to say that it won't perform but if Ping was going this route I wonder why they couldn't have refined it a little more.

    Right. Because unfilled screw holes in club heads is so common.

    I agree. Seems so odd to have uncovered screw holes in the back of the head. They couldn’t figure out a way to cover the holes that weren’t being used? When someone gets their hands on the head please let us know if the hole goes all the way through the head. Sometimes I wash my clubs with water so will the head get water in it through the holes if I put it under a faucet. Lol

    Whats interesting, if the info in the article is correct, the G400 plus will be available in 12 degrees (havent offered a 12 in the standard since G25 I believe, which has irritated me), but the SFT only in 10.5. I wonder if thats correct, I guess you can buy the SFT in 10.5 and 12, and the G410 plus in 9 and 10.5. Also that you dont have to pay extra for the tour, tensei or evenflow. This is the first time they are doing that, hence the increased price for the driver perhaps...

    At least put a real deal shaft in it! Last thing I want to do is buy a new shaft after I bought a driver for $540. Hope the adapter didn't change and all you g400 owners can use your old shafts.




    You won't be able to use the the G400 adapter with this driver. The G410 has lie adjustments, the G400 does not.

    I’m waiting for Golf Works to come out with various weights for the G410 Plus so I can slam an 8 gram weight in the heel and the toe. Keep the swingweight the same since it’s still 16 grams but have it on the outside.
