To maximize distance in fairway woods and hybrids, PING utilizes C300 maraging steel as their face material. One of the strongest alloys in the world, maraging steel is commonly used in aerospace technology, where strength and flexibility are vital. Those properties make it an ideal material to deliver faster ball speeds that launch shots farther and higher.
“Our main goal in the G400 fairway woods and hybrids was to introduce significant distance gains while maintaining other performance benefits such as forgiveness and the ability to launch the ball easily,” said John A. Solheim. “With maraging steel, we have a material that allows us to go extremely thin with the face to give us the faster ball-speed gains we’re seeking for more distance and higher launch. The results have been amazing as we’re seeing face flexing equal to the thickness of the face.”
The PING G400 fairway wood has expanded fitting options with the addition of a 9-wood and three SFT (Straight Flight) choices (3, 5, 7) to help golfers keep their shots on line. The Stretch 3-wood is also available as a high-performance option off the tee to deliver distance and accuracy or when going for par-5s in two.
Progressive center of gravity (CG) locations in the G400 hybrid offer versatility in helping golfers properly gap their sets. The 2- and 3-hybrids are engineered with a CG more towards the toe to minimize a left bias while the 4-, 5-, and 6-hybrids are designed to help golfers launch the ball higher with added forgiveness.
