PING G400 MAX Driver Review

PRICE: $399.95

SPECS: 9° and 10.5° with Ping Alta CB, Ping Tour and various aftermarket shafts, including Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Silver Dual-Core TiNI 60, Project X HZRDUS Yellow 75 and Aldila X-Torsion Copper.

PING Golf RECOMMENDATION: Targets mid- and high-handicappers who are tired of losing golf balls and want to hit it higher and straighter on a more consistent basis.


  • 460 cc head. (G400 445 cc)
  • Forged T9S+ face for more flex, ball speed and less spin due to face texture
  • High-density back weight for a deep CG
  • High MOI (measurement of how much the clubface twists or resistance to torque) and impressive forgiveness on off-center hits: 9,900
  • Dragonfly Technology for a thinner crown and additional weight savings
  • Turbulator Technology
  • Vortec Technology for improved aerodynamics and less drag
  • Sound: Research and computer simulation coupled with music theory inspired PING engineers to patent a rib architecture that fine-tuned the frequencies to produce a deeper, more muted sound while also enhancing feel.
  • Loft Settings: Up and down loft: 1 degree or .6 degree
  • Grip: New decade multi compound come stock for grip

What’s that Sound?

The PING G400 MAX is a little more “dead” with carbon material in head but still the PING “Smash” sound!

Face: forged and 16 percent thinner…possibly 1 or 2 mph ball speed = 5 yards

What do I like?  PING doesn’t vomit at you’re the whole MORE DISTANCE PHILOSOPHY

What you might see vs the G400

  • Higher launch
  • More forgiveness
