Equipment news: Ping launch new G30 hybridsJuly, 2014
Greater ball velocity and longer distances with a higher trajectory ensure the stopping power to attack pins
5 Ping’s new G30 hybrids are part of a new range designed to provide measurable distance gains without sacrificing control or forgiveness.
With an emphasis on significantly increasing ball velocity and accuracy through a combination of advanced aerodynamics, plus new face designs and materials, Ping say the G30 hybrids will hit the ball higher and land it more softly than ever before.
“Our engineers once again accomplished something that is unique to Ping products – they elevated performance significantly in key areas without sacrificing other important attributes,” said John Solheim, Ping’s chairman and CEO. “We’ve proved you can hit the ball higher and farther while increasing forgiveness and control.”
The top rail is flatter and the heel section is higher, providing a very square face at address that helps with aim and alignment consistency The thin, uniform 17-4 stainless steel face is processed with a H900 heat treatment to maximise face deflection and increase ball speed for added distance with a higher peak trajectory and a steeper landing angle.
Heel-toe weighting elevates MOI for extreme forgiveness. Weight in the low sole creates a low-back CG for consistent impact and high launch.
Progressive CG locations and offsets ensure efficient gapping and trajectories that maximise distance.
To inspire confidence, the top rail is flatter and the heel section is higher, providing a very square face at address that helps with aim and alignment consistency.
The high-balance-point TFC 419H shaft has a CG closer to the grip end, promoting a simultaneous increase in energy, momentum and inertia for longer, straighter results.
Lofts: 17, 19, 22, 26 & 30º
