Five things you need to know about the tech in the G400...

Today's Golfer (UK) - - My Life In Golf -

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.
