Q & A

PING Men's G400 SFT Driver

Sleek Design, Improved Acoustics, PING Playability

PING had great success with its G30 and G drivers, each of which ranked among golf’s most forgiving drivers. But company engineers felt that there were still improvements that could be made, most notably in terms of ball speed and distance, which were the top priorities when it came to designing the new G400 driver. And there are multiple technologies utilized in the G400 that are creating more ball speed and distance for players. First, the G400 features a more streamlined design and at 445cc there is 15 percent less drag created on the downswing, which equates to increased clubhead speed. Its clubface also has undergone a forging process that makes it thinner and more flexible without any loss of strength. More specifically, the face is six percent thinner and 16 percent more flexible, a combination that gives golfers more ball speed from all impact locations. What’s most impressive, however, is that even with the more streamlined, compact design, the G400 is even more forgiving than its predecessors and can claim more than 9,000 MOI points. Fueling the high level of forgiveness is Dragonfly Technology, which enabled a lightweight crown and skirt that gave designers discretionary weight that was used to establish a low, deep CG position. Additionally, a strategically placed tungsten sole weight optimizes stability and launch conditions. Also different for the G400 when compared to the G30 and G will be its sound and feel, which was another top priority for PING engineers. The G400 utilizes a new internal rib structure to deliver acoustics and feel that are more muted and crisp than was found in previous models. As has been the case with recent PING driver releases, consumers will have three models to choose from. The G400 SFT (Straight Flight Technology) has been designed to help players who flight a block or a slice square the clubface more easily at impact. It is available in standard lofts of 10 and 12 degrees and features a new stock shaft in the Alta CB, which is slightly counterbalanced to pair well with a heavier clubhead (203 grams) to maximize energy transfer at impact. PING does, however, offer additional aftermarket shaft options for players to choose from. All G400 drivers also feature a lightweight, adjustable hosel that offers five settings to adjust loft by +/- 1 degree, as well as the driver’s lie angle, to help players optimize ball flight. The stock length for the PING G400 SFT driver is 45 3/4 inches and the swingweight is D1.

Ideal For:

Players of all ability levels who need help in squaring the clubface at impact. The G400 SFT features weight that has been moved slightly toward the heel, as well as a lighter overall swingweight, a combination that will allow players to deliver the clubface in a more square position at impact. If you’re someone who tends to leave the face open at impact, which will most typically result in a slice or a block depending on swing path, the SFT is most likely the G400 model that will be the best choice for your game.

Faster Shape

The streamlined design along with bolder Turbulators and Vortec Technology creates less drag on the downswing to help players increase clubhead speed.

Faster Shape

Dragonfly Technology

Enables a lightweight, ultra-thin crown and skirt, which allowed discretionary weight to be repositioned to achieve an optimal CG location and higher MOI.

Dragonfly Technology

Forged Face

A forging process to complete construction of the clubface creates a face that’s thinner and more flexible, which produces faster ball speeds from all impact points.

Tungsten Sole Weight

Strategically positioned tungsten in the sole improves stability at impact and promotes optimal launch conditions.

Tungsten Sole Weight

What They're Saying ...

“We’re coming off a couple of high-performing drivers in the G30 then the G driver that led the marketplace in mechanical horsepower. They’re super straight, really good launch conditions, and we worked really hard with the G400 to advance that even further. So it’s higher inertia, the CG is lower and deeper, and it goes faster through the air. But we also focused on the motivation to the player. The driver looks amazing in the playing position, a little sleeker shape, less lines, and the sound and feel of this driver is absolutely phenomenal.”

Marty Jertson, PING Director of Product Development

“We’re trying to make that fitting process simple with three fully optimized models. We have the SFT model, Straight Flight Technology. The tungsten weighting is in the heel. That helps it square up a little easier, and the swingweight is also a little bit lighter. The standard version, the tungsten weight is placed optimally low-back so we can max out the inertia and dynamic loft. And then we have the LS Tec where the tungsten weight is placed in front of the high density back weight. (That) moves the CG more forward and gets the spin down about 300-400 RPM for those that need that to optimize their trajectory.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best driver I’ve ever bought Played 6 rounds with my new G-400 sft driver and absolutely love it. With a good set up and swing it’s going perfect 80% of the time. Thank Ping for an amazing product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding driver and shaft This is a fantastic option if you struggle with a slice or an unpredictable fade. Unlike the draw biased drivers of the past, the face is not closed but rather slightly more weight is placed in the heel. This makes releasing the club properly a little easier, resulting in straighter shots. In other words, it helps you release the club properly rather than compensating for not releasing the club properly. This may seem irrelevant, but it helps increase club head speed slightly. Importantly, unlike some manufacturers, Ping spends a lot of time developing shafts for their clubs. I have the upgraded option in mine, which offers a slightly lower ball flight than the Alta. I got the stiff shaft (swing speed in the low 90s).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything as advertised I have growing confidence in hitting off the tee. This club does required a full swing and follow through to achieve maximum effect. Still learning maximum placement of tee. Not sure of draw effect but definitely not slice prone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best driver Have the ping G25 driver but the G400 SFT is the best driver I have ever used

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Driver- Distance and Accuracy for a newer This is an amazing driver. More yardage and greater accuracy than my drivers of old. The only down side is that I am very careful with it, head cover even between holes, but it still got a chip on the head of the driver. I am hoping this isn’t going to split or cause problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Driver I've Ever Hit Bought this driver after a lot of shopping. Replaced my Taylor Made which was almost 10 years old. The SFT is incredibly forgiving, and eliminated my slice within a half dozen range balls. Gained about 40yrds too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did what it said it would do Very happy with results. For years I've had a wicked slice. Now I am more often than not, hitting from the fairway as apposed to the rough or trees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The SFT is the best Driver I've ever hit I was in the market to replace my TM M3 (horrible club) and had hit a Ping driver and loved the feel and sound of the club (I also play Ping iBlades so liked keeping the bag in the 'family'). Stopped in at local Ping fitter and tested out the entire line-up that Ping offers. I am a scratch golfer, 110 MPH swing speed, carry the drive anywhere between 280 - 300 and rollout to 290 - 315 (depending on Course conditions) I tested all the Ping drivers with my own custom made Hzrdus Yellow 75 S shaft. 15 drives with each club. Order of testing Max G400 SFT G400 G400 LST Results. G400 Max - worst driver of the bunch. Not only did it have the lowest distance I found that the shot dispersion was all over the map. Mind you I had taped the face and hit the ball in the exact spot on each drive. Left, right, middle, there was no real control over where the ball went. Also, unlike the other heads in the model line, the Max felt like a hard brick hitting the ball. It was not pleasant at all. No feel. Perhaps I am much better player than what this head is designed for? was super disappointed in the performance as I was really wanting to like this club. G400 - Was marginally better than the Max. Again the distance was a bit disappointing. The shot dispersion was much more closer grouped than the max. The feel of this club was excellent. Now for the best two in the line up..... G400 LST - A pretty darn good club that does what it says. It got my spin rate way down, on most of them I was spinning between 1900 - 2100. This was definitely the longest hitting club but only because of the rollout that the lower spin created; otherwise it was the second of longest for carry. Again, loved the feel of the club face on the ball. Hit the 8.5 and 10 loft, wasn't much difference for me between the two. The winner, and what I purchased G400 SFT 10 loft. All I can say is that for me, my swing, this was MONEY. Not only did I hit this furthest on carry, but overall average of total drives was the longest of the other 3. The shot dispersion was tight, 15 drives, all within 10 yards of the center line - frankly most of the shots were literally right down the middle. I felt I could really rip into this, which I did on a few hits, and it performed perfectly, straight drives, great height, long distance.

What indicates a senior shaft. I hCW  Ping Driver - 258876dl. Shaft says sS Flex SS. Is this a senior shaft

Asked by: Bob Gauvin
A senior flex shaft maybe marked with "SR" which is soft regular, the same as senior, sometimes manufactures also use "A" or "M" as well to indicate senior shaft. A regular flex will display an "R", a stiff flex will display an "S" and X-Stiff will state XS.

How do i adjust the club to draw the ball.

Asked by: Hakeem
To hit a draw, you'll want to open the club face just a little.The face on an adjustable club generally opens when you lower the loft.

Hello, is this driver good for a left handed golfer with a slice. My old driver broke and looking for a new one. I had to go back to my very first driver i got and found that i had to aim to the right off the fairway again. Any advice would be great. 

Asked by: Sdm2868
PING's Straight Flight Tec (SFT) drivers feature specific weighting that helps correct a slice, this club would be a good choice if you're trying to fix that.
