There are those who like a lot of bells and whistles on their drivers. Then there are those who prefer a cleaner, more streamlined look at point of address. For those of you seeking a simple yet high-performing driver, the following article is for you.
Today we are going to be taking a look at two drivers that will not be overwhelming in any way shape or form. So what do they bring to the table. Which will be better for your game overall? Find out in the following comparison article.
Ping G400 Driver Overview
The Ping G400 driver looks amazing at point of address or when it’s simply perched in your bag.
This is the kind of driver that begs to be swung. The edges of this driver are seamless and the matte-like finish make this an extremely attractive driver. But what about distance? Our testers were getting average distances of about 279 yards from the G400.
And forgiveness? This was a bit of a point of contention among our testers. Most of them remarked a lack of forgiveness on mis-hits. Ball speeds were brought down drastically unless the sweet spot was targeted.
However, they did mention that the feel of dead-center strikes was very satisfying. They also noted that the G400 felt very aerodynamic on the downswing.
Taylormade M4 Driver Overview
The Taylormade M4 was overall the more forgiving driver but it lacked the premium looks of the Ping G400.
As far as looks go, this is about as bare-bones as it gets, which may be a boon for some players. The Taylormade M4 features a recessed sole to enhance acoustics, a very deep face profile that our testers found very forgiving and an adjustable hosel – and that’s about it.
At point of address, the Taylormade M4 looks clean but not as attractive as the Ping G400 driver. It was also not playing as long for most of our testers. On average, testers were getting 263 yards out of the Taylormade M4 driver.
The main takeaway with the Taylormade M4 driver though is the straight shots it produces. In this sense, it outperformed the Ping G400.
If you need help staying on the fairway, we would strongly recommend checking out the Taylormade M4 driver. If you want a better feeling/looking driver that is a bit more workable, pick up the Ping G400.
