How does the new Ping G410 LST compared to the G400 Max driver. We put them head to head
Ping G410 LST driver review: Dan’s First Impressions
Overall, I would say it’s a much prettier head than my current G400 Max driver. The head is slightly more compact, with new colouring, and it certainly looks like more of a player’s driver.
Ping G410 LST driver review: The technology
The Ping G410 LST driver is a high-MOI driver engineered to produce low and stable spin.
The centre of gravity is slightly forward compared to the G410 Plus. This leads to spin reductions of approximately 200 to 400 rpm. At 450cc, the G410 LST driver features a more rounded, pear-shaped design, combined with more efficient Turbulator Technology for advanced aerodynamics, for increased clubhead speed.
The Tour Square face sits slightly open and the score-line pattern frames the impact area to aid alignment.
The G410 LST shares the movable-weight technology introduced in the G410 Plus model. Each weight position shifts the centre of gravity location by 1/10″ in each direction from neutral, influencing left or right shot direction by approximately 10 yards.
Patented Dragonfly Technology on the inside creates an ultra-thin crown structure, saving weight, which is moved to the extreme boundary of the clubhead to increase the MOI by 3% (compared to the G400 LST) for added ball speed and forgiveness.
The unique forging and patented heat-treatment process of the T9S+ face powers a thinner, hotter impact area that is precision-machined to elevate ball speed across the entire face for more flexing and faster ball speeds. The forged face and the internal geometry of the head are instrumental in producing the powerful feel and sound at impact.
The patented lightweight and aerodynamic adjustable hosel expands from five to eight settings, offering loft and lie adjustments to optimise ball flight.
Loft and lie angle options add another layer of opportunity for club fitters to really fine-tune a driver for each player.
There are four high-performance shaft options available at no upcharge and ensure a shaft-fitting solution to match the launch conditions of all golfers.
