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

    Since I was a young girl I have been playing the game of golf. My game and skills have progressed thanks to the help from my coach, Trent Rommann. Trent has dedicated a lot of time into improving my skills as well as others. From the summer golf Ping team, to workouts and even individual lessons he helps all that come to him.
    As a golfer, I have won two state championships as a member of the Kapaun Mt. Carmel girls golf team. I recently signed to play college golf at Rockhurst University. Because of Trent’s instruction, I have become a more successful golfer.

    “When we joined Crestview last summer Trent Rommann welcomed me right in and invited me to join the Ping Jr Interclub Team. Trent has pushed me to be the best player I can be whether it’s on the course or at the gym. Trent always has the best interest for the other kids and I. Trent makes practicing fun with games and prizes. This past November I signed to play golf at Fort Hays State University and can thank Trent for getting me to the level I need to be at to play there.”
