Ping G410 Vs. PXG 0811 Driver Comparison Overview
We make a lot of wild comparisons from time to time. Mostly because it’s fun to pit golf clubs that have very few similar features against each other. However, we usually try to stick to comparisons that give players an in-depth view of very similar golf clubs.
Today we are going to be providing you with one such insight as we give you the most important facts about the PXG 0811 and the Ping G410 drivers: two drivers that share some very important key features.
Ping G410 Driver Overview
The Ping G410 driver features a sliding rear weight that allows you to adjust CG to three different positions.
The three positions are draw, neutral and fade so a wide swath of players will be able to attack the ball the way they need to to get straight, far shots. The G410 driver also has an adjustable hosel that lets you fine-tune loft.
Before we get into the drawbacks of this driver, let us mention that the feel of the forged titanium face of the Ping G410 felt a lot nicer than the PXG 0811 driver. However, we really felt that the G410 was more for high to mid handicappers.
The shot shaping simply wasn’t there for our advanced testers. Still, our less experienced testers were able to get drives of up to 274 yards with the Ping G410. The G series also features the Ping G425 which is a bit more workable without giving up anything in the way of forgiveness.
PXG 0811 Driver Overview
Like the Ping G410, the PXG 0811 driver has adjustable weights and an adjustable hosel.
The difference is that there are a total of 16 moveable weights on the PXG 0811 driver. The adjustable hosels do the same thing on both of these drivers; but we felt that the PXG 0811 driver gave the testers in our party a lot more options.
The 0811 family also includes the 0811X, the 0811LX and the 0811XF. The 0811X has 10 moveable weights and produces very high launch angles (too high sometimes). The 0811LX is the lowest spinning driver in the family and the 0811XF is more suitable for high handicappers.
In comparison to the Ping G410 driver though, we found that the PXG 0811 driver was a lot less forgiving. It has a lesser feel and it takes significantly more time to adjust the weights to your liking.
From our testing, we concluded that the Ping G410 driver would be more suitable to mid and high handicappers. With the PXG 0811 driver, you have to be able to make consistent contact; but if you can, it allows you to attack holes with a dynamic range of shot shapes and flight.
