PING Introduces G410 Fairway Woods, Hybrids & Crossovers6 min read

PINGAuthor: PING


Posted on: 21st Jan 2019

With an emphasis on speed-generating face technology, maximised MOI’s and added adjustability, PING introduced today the G410 fairway woods, hybrids and crossovers to ensure golfers have multiple options to properly gap their sets. The new custom-fit, custom-built equipment is available for pre-order at authorised PING golf shops around the world beginning today.

“With the added distance golfers are enjoying in their drivers and irons due to all the advancements in technology, ensuring a set make-up that delivers the proper gapping is more important than ever,” said John K. Solheim, PING President. “Our G410 fairways woods, hybrids and crossovers offer golfers multiple options to transition from their mid-and long-irons into clubs that are easier to hit and provide tremendous distance while maintaining the necessary gapping benefits. They each provide varying performance features and launch characteristics. We’ve got everything from a low-spin 3-wood option, a 2 crossover all the way to a 6 hybrid. We encourage all golfers to undergo a thorough gapping analysis with an authorised PING fitting specialist to determine their ideal set make up.”

Maraging-Steel Face Technology

To maximise distance in the G410 fairway woods, hybrids and crossovers, PING has employed C300 maraging steel as the face material. One of the strongest alloys in the world, maraging steel is commonly used in the aerospace industry, where strength and flexibility are necessities. It’s those properties that also make it an ideal face material to deliver more flexing for faster ball speeds that launch shots further and higher.

“With maraging steel, we have a material that allows us to go extremely thin with the face to give us the faster ball-speed gains we’re seeking for more distance and higher launch. The results have been amazing as we’re seeing face flexing equal to the thickness of the face,” said Solheim.

A Focus on Forgiveness

In the G410 fairway woods, a low-back CG and high-density tungsten weight positioned at the extreme boundary of the head provides greater stability and forgiveness. A larger profile and high-density tungsten back weight in the G410 hybrid drive the MOI higher to ensure golfers the forgiveness they require while launching the ball higher. The G410 crossover, which has been streamlined to provide more iron-like performance, relies on a 30-gram dual-density tungsten toe weight to maximise forgiveness.
“Providing the most forgiving clubs in the industry remains a top priority for us,” Solheim said. “The use of multi-material construction and high-tech manufacturing processes allow us to consistently increase the MOI and design clubs that fit the needs of all golfers. Whether they prefer the performance of a fairway wood, the reliability of a hybrid or the versatility of a crossover, golfers can always count on a certain level of forgiveness from our clubs.”

PING’s First Adjustable Hybrid Hosel

The addition of a patented, eight-setting adjustable hosel to the hybrid greatly expands the fitting options to ensure proper gapping for golfers who rely on hybrids as mid- and long-iron replacements. The lightweight and aerodynamic adjustable hosel, which is also in the G410 fairway woods, offers loft (0, +1⁰, +1.5⁰, -1⁰, -1.5⁰) and lie adjustments (including up to 3⁰ flatter than standard) to optimise ball flight.
“Loft and lie adjustability in the hybrids will greatly benefit golfers,” said Solheim. “It’s a technology our fitters have been asking for and we’re excited to bring it to them to help golfers fine-tune their ball flight and dial in their gaps. We’ve also expanded the colour code options in the crossover to further customise them for lie angle to better transition into an iron set.”

G410 Fairway Woods Overview

Powered by a forged, maraging-steel face, the G410 fairway woods are engineered to launch the ball easily and deliver faster ball speeds on a penetrating trajectory that maximises distance. PING engineers positioned the low-back CG slightly forward of the G400 model to deliver more energy from the shallower face while providing greater stability. Eight fitting positions in the new lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve enable golfers to tune their trajectories through loft and lie adjustments. Three models (Std., SFT and LST) ensure an option to fit every golfer.

G410 SFT (Straight Flight) Fairway Woods

More heel-side weighting and a lighter swing weight help square the face to create right-to-left shot bend (RH golfers). The heads are slightly larger to drive the MOI higher, and lofts are 1.5˚ higher to produce easier launch.

G410 LST (Low Spin) 3-Wood

The all-new, slightly smaller head has a CG slightly lower and more forward than the standard head to launch shots higher with less spin, resulting in longer shots that get airborne easily for many higher swing speed and high spin golfers.

G410 Crossovers Overview

With a thin, maraging steel face for faster ball speeds and a 30-gram dual-density tungsten toe weight to increase the MOI, the G410 Crossover combines the precision and control of an iron with the speed and forgiveness of a hybrid.
