Ping G400 Fairway Wood
G400 Fairway Wood
A Faster Speed of Flight.
Ball speed and stopping power come from an innovative maraging steel face that flexes 30% more than any previous design-- making it PING’s hottest, highest launching fairway wood ever. A low lead edge and new, bolder turbulators elevate your ball flight and confidence from any distance.
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.
Engages at impact to increase face flexing for higher launch.
Ultra-thin 17-4 SS crown cast to .48mm for weight savings to increase MOI and optimize CG location.
SFT (Straight Flight) available
Standard Shaft: Alta CB
PING G400 Fairway Wood Expert Review

Club Tested: Ping G400 Fairway Wood; Shaft: Alta CB 65; Flex: Stiff; Loft: 14.5°
The Ping G400 Fairway metals incorporate a new face material made from Maraging Steel which is stronger, lighter and allows the face to flex more. The reduction of weight from the new material allowed Ping to add more beef to the back weight. The combination of these features increases ball speed, loft and MOI that according to Ping testing equals up to gains of 7 yards. More importantly, the MOI increase produces added control and forgiveness.
Who's It For?
Like the Driver, the new Ping G400 fairway metals will be a fit for players of all levels out there. There is a new stretch 3-wood that is 13-degrees and is made for more distance off the tee, as well as the SFT version that will players who tend to slice the ball.
First off, the appearance at address appears slightly more compact looks better to me than the G Series. As advertised, I saw an increased launch angle with a very flat trajectory, which is exactly what I look for in my game. The head still has a shallower face depth that will help the majority of the golfers out there. I normally prefer a slightly deeper face, but my low center hits on this shallow face still produced excellent height. The feel and acoustics differed from the driver, producing a higher pitched aluminum baseball bat sound. Overall, I liked this Ping fairway metal better than the past G series fairways.
