The month’s hot re­leases

Eight awe­some new clubs from Ping, Call­away and Cleve­land.

Golf World (UK) - - The Spin -

Ping G400 driver

The thin­ner one-piece ti­ta­nium crown and tung­sten weight moves the CG lower and deeper to make it in­cred­i­bly sta­ble and for­giv­ing. The tur­bu­la­tors are bolder. The forged face is thin­ner and lighter and the sound and feel has been greatly im­proved. Web: www.ping. com Price: £389

Ping G400 hy­brid

The marag­ing steel face makes the face 11% thin­ner, 10% lighter and 35% more flex­i­ble. This de­liv­ers an ex­tra 2mph of ball speed, a 5% higher flight and five more yards. There’s more weight in the toe in lower lofts to coun­ter­act the ten­dency for bet­ter play­ers to hit hy­brids a bit left. Avail­able in 17°, 19°, 22°, 26°, 30°. Price: £200

Ping G400 irons

The Eye-Cor Tech­nol­ogy has been im­proved with an elas­tomer badge, which looks great and damp­ens vi­bra­tions to im­prove sound and feel. They also fea­ture an un­der­cut toprail to move weight lower in the head. The MOI is 4% greater than their pre­de­ces­sors and they go five yards fur­ther. Price: £110 per iron (steel)

Call­away Steel­head XR fair­way

The car­bon crown weighs only 6g, so the CG is lower and more for­ward for high launch and low spin. The Hawk­eye Sole has been re-con­toured to in­crease its ver­sa­til­ity, the Hy­per Speed Face Cup de­liv­ers fast ball speeds across the face and the Speed Step on the crown re­duces drag to boost club­head speed. Price: £229

Ping G400 fair­way

It fea­tures many of the same en­hance­ments as the driver. Plus, a marag­ing steel face that is 28% thin­ner, 18% lighter and 30% more flex­i­ble than its pre­de­ces­sor. The re­sult is 2mph ex­tra ball speed, a higher flight and seven more yards. It is avail­able in 14.5°, 17.5°, 20.5° and 23.5°, plus an SF ver­sion in 16°, 19° and 22°. Price: £240

Ping G400 Cross­over

It’s much more iron-like than the orig­i­nal with a slim­mer pro­file and sil­ver hy­dropearl fin­ish. A tung­sten toe weight in­creases for­give­ness and the sole goes through the turf much eas­ier. The marag­ing steel face flexes more to launch the ball 1.5° higher than the orig­i­nal. It’s avail­able in 19°, 22° and 25°. Price: £200

Call­away Epic irons

An Exo-Cage stiff­ens the head for more ef­fi­cient en­ergy trans­fer. The rim of the 360 Face Cup is 1mm at its thinnest point to add ball speed on cen­tre hits and min­imise dis­tance loss on off-cen­tre strikes. Ev­ery iron is uniquely con­structed for the op­ti­mum per­for­mance. Web: www. call­away­golf.com Price: £1,749

Cleve­land RTX-3 Tour Raw wedge

Cleve­land has en­hanced its range of RTX-3 wedges with a Tour Raw fin­ish that re­duces glare and rusts over time. Feel Bal­anc­ing Tech brings the CG closer to the cen­tre of the face, the Ro­tex Face and Tour Zip grooves max­imise spin, and it’s avail­able in three bounce op­tions. Web: www. cleve­land­golf.co.uk Price: £120

Call­away’s Steel­head XR fair­way is avail­able in 3+ (13.5°), 3 (15°), 4+ (16°), 5 (18°), 7 (21°), 9 (24°) and Heav­en­wood (20.5°). Ping’s G400 driver is avail­able in a stan­dard (9°, 10.5°), low-spin­ning LS Tec (8.5°, 10°) or draw bias SF Tec (10°, 12°) head. The Ping G400 irons have a hy­dropearl fin­ish that re­duces fliers and coun­ter­bal­anced shafts for more club­head speed.
