Ping G430 hybrid review: NCG Summary
I love the looks, feel and performance of this product. Titleist have done a great job of taking a very forgiving model and making it faster.
This is perfect for players who want something that provides maximum distance and forgiveness in a player inspired package.
- Smaller more refined shaping
- Fast ball speeds across the face
- Forgiving on off centre strikes
- Not as workable as other models
I love a hybrid, especially a Ping hybrid so I was super excited to get testing this as soon as it arrived.
I really like the more rounded, fairway wood style shaping Ping have used in this hybrid. As someone who is more of a sweeper of the golf ball this suits my eye perfectly. I also love how clean the crown is and the very subtle dot used in the centre for alignment features.
Hybrids are funny clubs as they are very much gap fillers. I wouldn’t say you want them to go excessive distances as they need to fit a certain slot in your golf bag. Travelling the required distance is very important though.
Ping sent me a 4-hybrid and a 3-hybrid to test, as these are typically the lofts I would put in play.
