The Ping G410 driver is here – but how does it compare to the G400 Max?

Ping have launched the G410 driver. But how does it compare to equipment editor James Savage's beloved G400 Max?

Ping G410 driver vs. G400 Max: The results

Let’s start with the on-course testing.

Now you might think this is bonkers but the G400 Max still fills me with more confidence.

I’m sure sure you can really tell the difference between a 455cc and a 460cc head but the G400 Max to me, seems to look like it’s going to be harder to miss with.

But I do think the G410 actually frames the ball better.

When I first hit the G410, I thought it sounded very similar to the G400 Max, but after hitting both together the G410 is clearly a little bit higher pitched and sweeter. The G410 is a more pleasing driver to hit for this reason.

In terms of the performance, I’d be hard pushed to say the G410 was going any further or flying stronger through the air.

And after gathering some launch monitor numbers it’s quite hard to split the two.

So it’s hard for me to say that the G410 is offering me better results.

But I would say that the G410 is a significant improvement on the G400 Max for numerous reasons.
