Ping G400 Vs. Ping G410 Driver Comparison Overview
Looking for a driver that would be good for a mid to high handicap player? If so then you would do well by taking a good look at the Ping G400 and G410 drivers. On the surface, there are a lot of similarities between these two clubs.
However, you have to take a closer look to really determine who each one is for. We went out and tested these two drivers to find that out. Take a look at what we found.
Ping G400 Driver Overview
The Ping G400 looks amazing at point of address and will make you want to spend hours at the driving range.
The design of the Ping G400 is predicated on increasing MOI as much as possible. In fact, the Ping G400 has an MOI rating of 9,000 which is pretty impressive. Most of the MOI comes from a tungsten rear weight which can be adjusted to suit your needs.
The Ping G400 is also a 445CC driver so right off the bat, it’s not super forgiving. However, it is fast thanks to a forged titanium face insert. Overall though you will need a swing speed of at least 85 mph to unlock this driver’s full potential so in our opinion, the Ping G400 is more for mid handicappers.
Ping G410 Driver Overview
The G410 driver has the same forged titanium face insert but with a slightly larger footprint.
The G410 driver is 455CC so it is a bit bigger than the Ping G400 driver. Another significant difference between these two drivers is that the G410 has a sliding rear weight. That feature alone makes it very versatile but when you combine it with an adjustable hosel, pretty much anyone can use it.
The G410 also played slightly longer for most of our testers and it was slightly more forgiving as well. However, with the Ping G400, we were noticing faster club head speeds across the board. That didn’t however always lead to longer drives.
In terms of feel and control the G410 is very similar to the Ping G400.
If you’re looking for more forgiveness from your driver we would recommend the Ping G410. The G410 would also work well whether you tend to draw or fade the ball too much. On the other hand, the Ping G400 would be better for mid handicap players as it is more workable overall.
