PING G30 Hybrid
The Best. Made even Better.
Right on the edge of their several year release schedule, PING is building upon their exceptional G25 Hybrid with their new, sheer performance powerhouse G30 Hybrid that further showcases PING’s commitment to quality and optimal design. Since the G25’s release in late 2012, PING engineers have been coordinating with developers, compiling substantial data from PING consumer input and testing, testing, testing via PING Man, PING Golf’s mechanical swing robot first developed in 1976 and adeptly perfect at emulating normal human swing conditions along with crazy 150+ mph swing swing speeds --- to arrive at the next generation G-series 30.
With the huge success of the the G25 Hybrid, the new G30 makes “great” even better with a larger heel and toe mass that increases the club’s MOI for more forgiveness. The G30 Hybrid is designed also with a flatter, more square appearance at address, top rail for added control and confidence. PING then updated the 17-4 stainless steel face with an H900 heat treat process for added hardness and strength along with greater face deflection yielding more ball speed and added distances. Progressive CG positioning, more forward in higher lofts and farther back in lower lofts, optimizes trajectories across all the G30 Hybrids. Progressive hosel positions give the G30 Hybrid higher launch in low-lofted hybrids with more penetrating trajectories in the the higher lofted G30 Hybrid heads.
Standardly equipped with PING’s TFC 419H shaft that features a high balance point allowing for the G30’s heavier head, the shaft increases MOI for more distance and will have you swinging stronger and straighter than ever. Other Tour shaft options offer lower trajectory with added control.
Based on the best of the best PING has to offer. Built on the best of the best PING has developed through the years. And engineered with every aspect of aerodynamics, center of gravity, inertia, and weight positioning optimally designed to improve your game --- the new PING G30 Hybrid is yet another magnificent milestone in Mr. Solheim and company’s precise and exacting manufacturing history of making the best equipment that can be made for people to play, the very best they can, the hardest game in the world.

Ping G30 Hybrid Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
Like the driver and fairway versions, the Ping G30 Hybrid is again a very simple, yet effective club. The one difference is this time the hybrid does not have the Turbulators on the crown. The G30 has progressive CG locations and offsets to ensure trajectories and gapping, which is very important with your hybrids. The G30’s sole is flatter than I tend to see when compared with the other OEM’s offerings. Another noticeable difference is a lower profile head. This simple clean head sits very well at address, and looks easy to hit; neither too large, nor too small.
Who's It For?
Ping does about as good as job as anyone at making clubs that can fit a large range of players, and the G30 Hybrid is yet another example.
Though it did not feature that wicked, cracking noise like the driver did, it did provide me with a solid feeling that I liked. The ball flight was a touch high for the 22 degree head that I tested, but the spin was controlled enough to not cause any ballooning. The G30 hybrid is another excellent club by Ping that will be liked by many.
