Ping G430 Woods and Irons
Ping have announced their new line of woods and irons, the G430 range, replacing the popular and successful G425.
Ping have introduced their new Carbonfly Wrap technology in this range to help maximise speed and power without sacrificing forgiveness.
"Our approach with G430 has been to find more speed and deliver it in a way that contributes to lower scores and more enjoyment on the course. That includes providing a level of forgiveness that remains unequalled. The powerful combination of distance and forgiveness wins would when golfers are properly fitte. We see that every day in our research and we're excited to get the G430 into the hands of golfers so they can see the same benefits" said Ping CEO & President, John Solheim.
The complete range includes three drivers (MAX, LST & SFT), three fairway woods (MAX, LST & SFT), six hybrids and irons sets available in steel or graphite shafts.
G430 MAX Driver:
The G430 MAX Driver remain the most forgiving and fits the widest range of golfers. A 25-gram, high-density tungsten moveable backweight influences shot shape +/- 10 yards between the Draw, Neutral and Fade settings. Available in 9°, 10.5° and 12° lofts. Loft is adjustable +/- 1.5° and lie up to 3° flat from standard using the 8-setting Trajectory Tuning 2.0 hosel.
G430 LST Driver:
The PING G430 LST Driver features an exclusive Low Spin Technology (LST) Carbonfly Wrap, a lightweight composite that covers the crown and wraps into the heel/toe sections of the skirt to save weight and lower the CG for more ball speed, less spin and higher MOI. The 8-layer, one-piece composite saves four grams and weighs 11.5g fully installed. A moveable 22-gram, high-density tungsten backweight influences shot shape ±7 yards between the Draw, Neutral and Fade settings. At 440cc, the smaller tour-style LST is available in 9° and 10.5° lofts (adjustable +/-1.5° and lie up to 3° flat from standard) and best fits faster swing speeds.
G430 SFT Driver:
The PING G430 SFT Driver features new technology that delivers measurable ball-speed gains while improving sound quality. The added ball speed is attributed to a shallower and thinner VFT forged face design engineered with Spinsistency, a variable roll radius technology. The improved and pleasing sound is the result of fine-tuning the frequencies of the head through a new internal rib structure.
G430 MAX Fairway Wood:
The PING G430 MAX Fairway Wood features a Carbonfly Wrap that deliver more distance by positioning the CG closer to the force line to maximize ball speed, resulting in higher, longer carries. The MAX model fits the widest range of golfers with four options (3W/15°, 5W/18°, 7W/21°, 9W/24°).
G430 LST Fairway Wood:
The PING G430 LST Fairway Wood features a Carbonfly Wrap that deliver more distance by positioning the CG closer to the force line to maximize ball speed, resulting in higher, longer carries. The tour-style LST (3W/15°) best fits faster swing speeds.
G430 SFT Fairway Wood:
The PING G430 SFT Fairway Wood features a Carbonfly Wrap that deliver more distance by positioning the CG closer to the force line to maximize ball speed, resulting in higher, longer carries. The SFT comes in 3 modes (3W/16°, 5W/19°, 7W/22°) with lighter swing weights to help square the face at impact.
The PING G430 Iron Sets produce distance gains of approximately 7-10 yards and improved accuracy throughout the set. It’s the result of a complex design that combines a lower CG with stronger, custom engineered lofts and a thinner face that delivers up to 2 mph more ball speed - leading to significant distance gains without compromising PING's famous forgiveness.
