Five things you need to know about the tech in the G400...
1 The sound
Ping’s engineers reckon a badsounding driver shares similar sound frequencies with a crying baby. They’ve specifically tuned the G400 to generate some of the same sound frequencies as a luxury car door closing.
2 Rear tungsten weight
Thanks to weight being shaved from a thinner and lighter face, Ping has been able to locate 7g of dense tungsten right on the perimeter of the G’s head. It’s said to give the G400 20% more MOI than the industry average.
3 New cosmetics
More pronounced crown turbulators are designed to increase air flow efficiency and head speed and there’s a new “infinity edge crown” to give a cleaner look at address.
4 New face material
The clubface is made from a new kind of titanium (T9S+). It’s thinner and lighter (frees up weight to improve forgiveness) and it’s 20% more flexible.
5 New Alta CB 55 shaft
Counter-balancing means the Alta positions more weight closer to the head and under the hands. Ping says it gives more momentum at impact to increase ball speed.
