The next generation of speed is here with their biggest jump in the speed-inducing driver. Introducing Ping G430 Drivers. Go Farther. Faster.
The first week on tour saw record numbers with the new G430 driver, especially in ball speeds, giving their tour staff players to make the transition to the latest model.
As well as their distance gains, Ping also believe their G430 range of drivers remain unequalled for forgiveness. More distance and unrivalled forgiveness are certainly going to be attractive statements for golfers in 2023.
Following on from the previous models, the G430 keeps 3 heads in the line with the MAX (draw bias) the SFT (Straight flight technology) and LST (Low spin technology).
Optimised T9S+ Forged Face
A shallower, variable-thickness face is thinner for generating faster ball speed for our biggest distance gains to date.
Exclusive to the 440cc LST is Carbonfly Wrap, a lightweight composite that covers the crown and wraps into the heel and toe sections of the skirt to save weight and lower the CG for more ball speed and higher MOI.
A new internal rib structure and increased curvature of the crown, skirt and sole fine-tunes clubbed frequencies to produce a desirable sound and impact experience.
Contributing to the added ball speed is a variable roll radius that improves performance across the T9S+ forged face by reducing spin, resulting in faster speeds that generate consistently longer drives.
In the MAX, a 25-gram, high-density tungsten backweight influences shot shape ±8 yards between Draw, Neutral and Fade settings. The LST (low spin) model provides ±7 yards of movement from a 22-gram tungsten weight in the three settings.
Straight Flight Technology
New to the SFT head is a moveable, 22-gram, tungsten backweight that positions the CG to deliver 13 yards of right-to-left shot bend in the Draw setting and another 7 yards in the Draw+ (20 yards total).
Each of the models is engineered to ensure added distance and forgiveness for a variety of skill levels. The MAX (460cc) is the most forgiving and fits the widest range of golfers with three loft options (9°, 10.5°, 12°). The SFT (460cc) produces right-to-left shot correction in one loft (10.5°). At 440cc, the smaller tour-style LST is available in 9° and 10.5° lofts and best fits faster swing speeds.
Adjust Loft & Lie
To customise ball flight, Trajectory Tuning 2.0 utilizes a lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions, adjusting for loft (±1.5°) and lie (up to 3° flatter than std.).
G430 High launch Build
In comparison testing, slower-swing-speed golfers gained an average of nine yards off the tee from faster ball speed generated by the lighter system weight of the HL custom build (11g backweight, lightweight PING ALTA Quick shaft, Lamkin UTx grip). Available in the MAX and SFT only.
