Ping G400 Crossover
Ping G400 Crossover
A Faster Speed of Flight.
The precision, workability and control of an iron combined with the ball speed and forgiveness of a hybrid make the G400 Tour Crossover a high-performance and versatile option for golfers of all skill levels. The maraging steel face delivers faster ball speeds and higher launch to produce 30% more stopping power. The addition of a tungsten toe weight increases forgiveness resulting in 17% tighter dispersion. Turf interaction is greatly improved with a thinner sole.
Maraging Steel Face
One of the strongest and most flexible alloys in the world, maraging steel is an ideal face material to deliver faster ball speeds that launch shots farther, higher and straighter.
Tungsten Sole Weight
20 grams, externally joined for higher MOI and greater forgiveness.
Thinner, Hybrid-Style Sole
Thin sole provides more consistent turf interaction.
Forward CG placement creates 45% less shot bend and 40% more spin, giving golfers more control and predictability.
Hydropearl Chrome Finish
Repels moisture for more control and helps minimize fliers from wet conditions and lies in the rough.

PING G400 Crossover Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
Club Tested: Ping G400 Crossover; Shaft: Alta CB 70; Flex: Stiff; Loft: 4-Iron
The new Ping G400 Crossover incorporates a Maraging C300 Steel Face that promotes fast ball speeds, increased loft, spin and improved acoustics. A larger, more toe forward tungsten weight creates a centered CG that increases forgiveness and straighter ball flights than past Ping Crossovers. A thinner hybrid style sole and thinner top line produces better turf interaction and a less bulky look. The forward CG translates into a more iron-like swing, which produces more backspin and less side spin.
Who's It For?
With the new changes, the G400 Crossover will appeal to more players than ever, but they are still geared towards players with issues hitting hybrids and players who prefer an iron-style club head.
I found fade bias of the past Crossover version made it a great club off the tee. While most players do not need this type of club this year’s edition will fit a larger range of players. The additional spin, repositioning of the CG and a more neutral bias allowed me to see straighter, higher shots. These features translates to better playability from the grass and less from the tee.
While I am more a fan of having a hybrid in my bag, the new G400 Crossover is so easy to hit that I could easily put these in my bag instead of a hybrid. The feel, sound and results were really, really good. Yes it is bulky, but as I get older I tend to lean on results versus looks. If hybrids are not your thing, the new Ping G400 Crossover is a 100% must try when looking for options to replace those harder to hit long irons.
