Our verdict

Today's Golfer (UK) - - New Gear -

Ping in­sist that be­cause their man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy al­lows them to pro­duce ti­ta­nium to the same thick­ness as three sheets of pa­per, they re­ally don’t need to look at car­bon-fi­bre crowns just yet. And based on the per­for­mance of the G400, we’d have to agree. £389 is cer­tainly not a snip for any driver, but the G400 does what it claims, and that’s re­ally im­pres­sive. It goes down as an ex­tremely for­giv­ing and pow­er­ful op­tion which is just what most club golfers want. It might not have any slid­ing weight or car­bon-fi­bre tech, but be­cause there are three dif­fer­ent mod­els you can be fit­ted just as well into a new G400 as any other driver on the mar­ket. Ul­ti­mately, G400 is bet­ter than the pre­vi­ous G driver; we’ve proved it. But Ping aren’t ex­pect­ing too many G own­ers to up­grade. How­ever, if you own a G30 or older it would be well worth hit­ting the G400 on a launch mon­i­tor to see how much dis­tance you can pick up.
