It seems like a G425 with a different color. Not much different than what you have in your bag.

By ping standards of the last decade the G425 is the nicest looking line of woods theyve ever made. Too bad theyre on the higher spin side, the fairways have such shallow faces, and the driver sounds like a hollow beer can - else I'm sure more people would give them a more serious look.

I have zero factual information.  What I'm about to say is pure conjecture.  With Ping always maintaining that carbon actually has a net negative weight advantage due to the shelves and glue I wonder if that is why no carbon on the Max?  The 425LST has actually morphed into the game improvement realm for MOI. You would think Ping could use carbon on the LST and afford to give up some MOI and it still be a great driver. It might not be possible for the Max to be a 5600+ MOI with carbon? 

 

Then again Ping may have done it for cost savings?  Who knows. Guess we will find out in the next couple of months. 

 

Possibly. Or just do carbon because in the lst purely for sound as it's the "better player" option. Time will tell.

Between this and what Im hearing about Callaways new driver…. 😩 

 

Im happy with my current driver

Has there been a thread started on new Callaway news? On topic though, interested like everyone else to see how the new LST stacks up to previous models. Some have complained of high spinning 425 heads for an LST, but works just fine with the right shaft.

Gotcha. Was wondering if there was something in the forum to match up in terms of what you've been hearing

Ironically my train gif is kinda related. Johnny Wunder when asked about it said “im so excited for everyone to see them, they went off the rails in the best possible way”. Take that for whatever its worth 🤷‍♂️

I think those pics are not what we will see. I am very excited for this release. Show us the real pics!

I agree. These pics are very unimpressive and there is no way Ping would allow spy pics this bad to leak so soon before a release. I tend to think Golfwrx would take these down if they were legit.

I could be completely wrong, but I just don’t see any way Ping allows these pics if indeed this is the G430. Golfwrx honors embargo’s and takes pics down that are not supposed to be on this site, yet this terrible quality image is still posted here days later when you’re supposedly about to get someone in big trouble for posting it on a no name IG account. It all just seems suspect.

I thought the G425 line of Drivers and woods were one of the best selling they've put out. People not buying them?

I'm not sure about best selling compared to the G400 initial line but definitely up there. I was just saying that they could have sold that many more if those issues were addressed.

I usually buy all my stuff from the same guy who owns a golf store and course and he said that he has sold 1200 g425 drivers so yeah they are one of the best selling drivers.  Now I don't know if that beats, exceeds or falls behind the g400 but I would say that is pretty darn good for one store to sell that many!!!

Also fyi something that hasn’t been talked about is the return of a titanium fairway and cost will be almost as much as driver. It’s solid though and I’m sure will find a spot in my bag lol

 

On those released photos I didn't see any "ti" markings, but thats a good point to keep in mind for sure.  Sounds like I'm about due for the purge of all the stuff sitting around the house to order day one...

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
