Ping G400 Hybrid
Ping G400 Hybrid
A Faster Speed of Flight.
An ideal option when gapping your set for mid-to-long distance shots, the G400 hybrids combine maraging steel faces with CG optimization to deliver more distance and forgiveness. Hotter ball speeds launch shots higher and farther while internal weighting keeps your ball flight on line and under control.
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.

Club Tested: Ping G400 Hybrid; Shaft: Alta CB 70; Flex: Stiff; Loft: 22°
The G400 hybrids have the same Maraging Steel face material as the fairway metals. The change in face material from the 455 Carpenters Steel used in the G series hybrids is said to produce a higher launch, longer flight, and added forgiveness. The ultra-thin 17-4 SS crown allows more weight to be distributed to the rear CG which increases the MOI and produces drop and stop playability.
Who's It For?
Players of all abilities.
First off, let me note that the new Ping G400 Hybrids have a fade B=bias in the lower lofted heads. Pretty much all of the past offerings that I have tested had a draw bias. Though I tested the 22-degree head, I found it to be less hook prone than previous models. There is a still some draw bias to this loft, but far less. The hockey stick look (flat sole, slightly upright angle) to hybrids always seem to produce even more draw that I prefer in hybrids, but Ping has worked hard to show that this shape can produce less of a draw bias. The feel, sound and flight were all similar to the G Series. The big key for me was the reduced draw bias and a must for my game.
