I quite liked the 425 as far as looks go. The only reason I didn't play it was because of the sound. Can anyone comment on the sound of the new 430?

According to many who have tested it, it's improved so much on both models that it's not an disadvantage anymore. Search for G430 on Youtube, there is a review video hitting both models at an indoor bay, both sound solid asf.

Sounds like it should be the VLST instead of LST!!

 

Just think if he didn’t actually hit it at 8* or whatever he lofted down to.

Sounds great, looks like all the players who struggle with spin finally got their unicorn wish…sound, feel were fantastic and spin just crazy low….

He does at the very end of the video.

Looks like he lofted it back up toward the end of the video. 

 

Despite the absolutely absurd results, he also mentioned not being at top speed in the video. That's the question I always have about Ping drivers that can't really be answered without head-to-head tests -- whether slightly lower than all-out top speed is just because of how somebody's feeling and swinging that day, or if it's caused by the slightly heavier heads. I realize it'd be different for different people. I also think since he was testing it with a Kai'li White and probably got a standard demo, it was probably at 45.25" to get the swing weight right, rather than the 45.75" that Ping builds its drivers with an Alta CB shaft in them as standard, so that could have an effect too.

Also Ping Europe have tweeted that fittings for G430 will begin Mid-Jan (Europe & UK)

 

It was really low spin 1200-1900.  Maybe to low. Sounds pretty quite in the video. He was crushing it. When he put it in fade, it helped take out the left.

Alex is always swinging as hard as he can, or harder. He is entertaining to some, but mostly a goof and regularly hits the ball off the map because all he cares about is distance.

 

I am way more impressed with reviews by Thomas @ 2nd Swing and Michael Newton.

Thomas yes, Newton no. 
Thomas is much more appealing as he has a clear understanding of why or how the club is performing.

Newton is less appealing as he doesn’t ever show dispersion and only launch, spin and ball speed and doesn’t have a repeatable swing IMO for his skill level.

I do however find MN better than any other UK reviewer.

Ping just claimed to have the most drivers in play at Zozo and number one among them was G430. If that’s true that seems to be one of the fastest adoptions of a new product in a long time. Getting more excited.

I was about to ask that question. I’ve followed equipment but haven’t looked into adoption rates and average adoption time etc.
