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.

In 20 Words Or Less

The Ping G410 driver is all about custom ball flight. Mid handicappers will love the accuracy.

PXG 0811 Driver First Impressions

At first glance, we could see that the shape of the 0811 driver face was unique. It was deep (or tall depending on how you want to put it) and made for excellent spin ratio.

Right off the bat, the PXG 0811 driver played long. It worked to dramatically reduce spin off the tee and produced high-arcing shots.

Carry distance was also impressive. To say that this driver played long would be an understatement. Still, for all the distance, the 0811 driver is surprisingly forgiving.

PXG claims that by using a robotic face polishing process, they were able to add a slight curvature to the face. This may be what enhances the spin correction at impact and the forgiveness of this driver.

The 0811 Family

The 0811 driver family also includes the 0811 X Proto driver. The X Proto is the more forgiving driver but it does produce significantly more spin than the standard 0811.

Ping G410 Driver – First Impressions

The first thing you will notice about the G410 is the amazing feel at impact.

We expect excellent performance from a Ping driver and the G410 doesn’t disappoint.

Tungsten weighting in the head and toe strecth the massive sweet spot for extra forgiveness.

Thanks to the amazing T9S titanium used to build the face of this driver, you get incredible responsiveness, ball speed and feedback.

The Trajectory tuning 2.0 allows you to adjust the loft and lie by a couple of degrees to perfectly optimize the club for your own particular game.

The streamlined, tubulator technology keeps the aerodynamic design that offers maximum swing speeds while the dragon fly technology keeps the stability in the club for even the fastest swingers.

Another point to notice is that the head is slightly smaller than the legal limit of 460cc at 455 cc’s.

While not as long as the Epic Max, it does have a better feel and more acute ball flight control overall.

The G410 Family

The G410 also comes in the SFT version. The SFT has fixed perimeter weighting to increase MOI which offers the best all round performance

The LST is the low spin model which will help to keep the ball flying more straight, more often.

The heel-oriented CG will also help correct your slice better than the standard G410.

PXG 0811 Driver  – Who is it for?

This driver would be a good choice for anyone who is looking for a combination of distance and feel.

The minimal spin of this driver can’t be denied. The deep face works in conjunction with the low, back weighting to produce high-arcing shots that carry further.

This is also a surprisingly long driver for PXG. The sloped crown will help if you have a downward attack on your drives.

Of course, the PXG 0811 feels excellent. But we would expect nothing less from a PXG club.

Ping G410 – Who Are They For?

 The Ping G410 driver will work best for mid handicappers who make consistent contact but are looking for enhanced workability.

Overall, the Ping G410 driver has a great level of feel with its more compact head. It’s a matter of titanium vs. stainless steel.

The G410 driver rocks a titanium face while other drivers utilize stainless steel. The T9S face of the G410 driver felt better to us but that may just be a matter of opinion.

The customization options, adjustability and thin face offer a ton of performance in all aspects of the game.

Higher handicap and inconsistent players may not be able to get much use out of the G410 with it’s smaller 455cc head.

The Plus version of the G410 has a fixed weight and offers the most balanced performance. Great for those who are consistent with their strikes.

The LST version has lower spin and is more forgiving for those who struggle to keep the ball on the fairway.
