Ping G400 Vs. Taylormade M2 Driver Comparison Overview
We really love Ping drivers. They always bring the heat in terms of feel and distance. On the other hand, we also really like Taylormade drivers – particularly the M series. The M series represents some of the nicest sounding and feeling drivers on the market.
It’s hard for us to reconcile our love for these two manufacturers because in our opinion, each does something different to make their clubs so endearing. This is very evident in the G400 and the M2 drivers so we went out and tested them side-by-side.
Ping G400 Driver Overview
The Ping G400 driver is one of the nicest-looking Ping clubs we have ever tested. Every swing was a joy with this driver.
The first thing we have to mention are the looks of this driver at point of address. The Ping G400 sports a sleek, clean and streamlined head profile that looks amazing in your hands or even just in the bag.
Secondly, the forged titanium face gives the G400 an amazing feel at impact. It flexes to a high degree but what is more marked about it is the solid feel you get. It’s a buttery driver that delivers on distance and workability too.
It should be mentioned however, that the G400 is not for the feint of heart. It has a 445CC head which is considerably smaller than that of the Taylormade M2 driver.
Taylormade M2 Driver Overview
The Taylormade M2 driver has a 460CC so right off the bat, it will be more congenial for mid to high handicappers.
The Taylormade M2 was also the more forgiving driver which was pretty much what we expected. What we love the most about this driver though surprised us: the feel. The Taylormade M2 doesn’t have a forged face like the G400 but it feels lusciously solid thanks to a titanium body and carbon fiber crown.
The higher handicap testers in our party were also able to get more distance out of the Taylormade M2 than they were with the G400. The M2 also produces a deep, rich sound thanks to a recessed sole.
Neither of these drivers will disappoint you so long as you know what to expect from them. From the Ping G400, low handicappers can expect remarkable workability and a buttery feel. From the Taylormade M2, higher handicappers can expect exceptional forgiveness and consistency.
