Ping G430 Max 10K driver - 2023 RSM Classic

😂 This will come as a surprise to the teams of engineers employed by literally every other OEM. (Sorry but you're just reciting Ping's PR).

 

Anyway, Ping already tipped their hand on turbulators when they pulled them from their fairway wood and hybrid lines. And they'll be gone from drivers, too, eventually.

 

Look at all the head-to-head videos online. Ping isn't beating competitors on clubhead speed, and if they were, other companies would be introducing their own (non-patent-infringing) versions.

 

Turbulators are about marketing and aesthetics far more than performance. Do that have an impact on head speed? I doubt it, but if so, it's so minuscule as to be imperceptible in terms of outcomes. 

Ping pulled them from the fairway\hybrid lineup  because the benefit wasn't noticeable. Different story for the drivers. If they ever discontinue them it won't be because they didn't work. Sorry.

No hot takes on turbulators from me. I’ve only changed my avatar 2x since my last hot take on ‘em and @Puttersaurus Rex is watching.

Welcome to a Ping pre-release thread!  It's the wild wild west according to some.

 

Looking forward to more reviews of this driver!  The turbulators don't bother me, and I can see a future fitting and purchase of this release.

For a brand that goes by their laurels about not using marketing only engineering, naming this model 10K is quite a marketing endeavor just saying. 🤷‍♂️

I’ve been loving my LST because of the amazing combination of low spin, distance, and forgiveness, but there’s one thing that’ll get me looking hard at the 10K…

 

… and this will get me raked over the coals with some of you…

 

… but I hope this thing is as loud as a trash can getting thrown around by a pissed off garbage man. I miss that feedback from their pre-G430 drivers. 
 

There, I said it. 

 

Follow up on this… my 10K is LOUD!  It gives great audio feedback and it’s performing well so far.  

 

It’s still cold up here and I haven’t gotten on trackman yet, but it seems like a winner.  I’ve been swapping between the Black 65X, Black 75X, and a ADBB6X (turned down to 7.5º 🤤) and all three are giving different results.

 

But yes, it’s loud.  I love it.  Very much so.

I had the same issue but determined it was caused by my Mitsubishi Vanquish.  Drove me nuts.  I sold the shaft and installed a Ventus Blue TR and the noise stopped.  Try a different shaft if you haven’t already.  

You have to be joking, right?

Turbulator Research Paper

 

According to this research paper, turbulators are all about performance not marketing or aesthetics. While a 1 mph gain over the same club head without turbulators isn’t earth shattering, these small gains do add up. 

 

 

The faster the clubhead speed, the greater the gains from what I understand.  the turbulators work at all swing speeds, but the highest swing speed players benefit the most.

I guess I’m the only one who really likes the turbulators as an alignment aid. The dots on the fairways look cheap to me. To each their own…

 

I'm at the point I don't even notice them when I line up my driver.  I know they are there, but I don't think about them  to the point of a distraction.
