Ping G410 Vs. Callaway Epic Max Driver Comparison Review 2021
Both the Ping G410 and the Callaway Epic drivers have been out for years.
The latter being released in 2019 and with the first version of the former Epic Driver being released all the way back in 2016.
The Epic Max is the very latest version of the driver and was released in 2021 while the G410 was upgraded by the G425 by Ping in 2021 as well.
Still, very few have compared these 2 similar drivers side by side. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time to hit the range and test two drivers at the same time.
But that’s exactly what we did. So, how do the Callaway Epic Max and the Ping G410 drivers stack up against one another? Find out in the following review.
Callaway Epic Max Driver Overview
As the name implies, the Epic Max was built to be big and long, but also forgiving. In fact, this is an impressive distance driver.
THe Max is a machine like driver with a lighter weight components and weight distributed by A.I for enhanced MOI, higher launching, longer and straighter shots than almost all drivers on the market.
If you are looking for distance and accuracy, Callaway has got your number. The same company that gave high handicap golfers the Big Bertha is a staple in driving distance.
The Epic Max is a testament to this heritage. In simple words: the Epic Max plays long but it’s key offering is a mix of distance and forgiveness.
If you are looking for pure distance as someone with a high swing speed, the Epic Speed might be a better choice but the Max and LS will help less consistent players stay on the fiaryway.
The Max looks for stunning distance but also has an advanced focus on forgiveness while the LS version offers low spin for straight and consistent shots.
Even though you get a decent amount of spin off the tee with the Epic Max, the distance is still there. It features the SS21 Flash Face which is a stainless steel that flexes to a high degree.
The internal jail break bars help to stabilize the club for any swing speed, offering increased distance and consistency.
Ping G410 Driver Overview
Solid feel from the T9S titanium face and custom ball flight highlight this impressive driver from Ping.
T9S titanium is ultra-thin and ultra strong. This helps keep the weight down and increasing ball speed from flex. The Ping G410 has some similar features to the Callaway Epic Max with an emphasis on all round performance with High MOI, long distance and a ton of forgiveness.
For instance, the internal “Dragonfly Technology” is an internal bracing system much like the Jailbreak bars of the Epic Max.
The Ping G410 also has an adjustable rear weight. You can slide the weight over to the draw or fade side for complete optimisation. The LST model has the weight fixed in one spot for a low spin, more consistent experience.
The middle position is neutral of course. Like the Callaway Epic Max, the G410 driver has an adjustable hosel for even more shot shaping.
Both of these drivers are comparable in terms of quality and performance. For us we like the better value of the Ping G410 for now.
It has almost the same performance but you can pick it up for a good bit less. If you want the latest and greatest from Callaway and don’t mind paying a bit more, the Epic Max will be an excellent choice.
