Ping G410 Vs. Taylormade M2 Driver Comparison Overview

The Ping G410 and the Taylormade M2 drivers are not the most advanced in their respective lines. The Taylormade M6 features the expanded sole panel that would later be featured in the SIM2 drivers. The Ping G425 features higher quality titanium body material.

Still, the Ping G410 and the Taylormade M2 have something to offer certain types of golfers. The trick is knowing whether or not that type of golfer is you. Find out in the following comparison overview.

Ping G410 Driver Overview

The Ping G410 offers incredible versatility to help competitive players attack each hole with confidence.

If you mainly want a driver to play around with at the range, this driver is not for you. This is a driver that was meant to be in the hands of scratch golfers. It’s combination of a rear adjustable weight and an adjustable loft sleeve make it incredibly versatile and helpful for strategic fairway placement.

The Ping G410 would be a great choice if you are a mid to low handicapper. It has a 455CC head which makes it a bit better in terms of workability from the tee. We noticed when we tested it, that the Ping G410 also produces low spin off the tee.

This is a great driver if you are looking for the utmost in accuracy; just be aware that it is not very forgiving. You will need a good swing speed and impact accuracy.

Taylormade M2 Driver Overview

The Taylormade M2 is certainly the more forgiving of these two drivers with a 460CC head and corrective face architecture that help with mis-hits.

It was a lot easier for our higher handicap testers to get the hang of the Taylormade M2. It has a more generous face and sweet spot than the Ping G410 without question. The lightweight 9-1-1 titanium body of the Taylormade M2 driver also makes it ideal for players with slow swing speeds.

While the Taylormade M2 doesn’t play as long as the ping G410 in general, it is really meant more for players in the high to mid handicap range.

The Ping G410 driver is nearly ideal for any player that needs to be able to work the ball from the tee. The Taylormade M2 would be better suited to players who prefer a deeper, more satisfying sound on impact and who need more help with forgiveness.

Taylormade M2 First Impressions

The first thing we noticed about the Taylormade M2 driver was how light it felt and how well it cut through the air on the downswing.

This driver will feel really good for anyone with a slower swing speed. It cuts through the air like a dream and delivers smooth, buttery contact when you pure it.

The M Family

The M2 is joined by the M6 and M4 drivers. The M6 more closely resembles the SIM drivers from Taylormade as it has an even more pronounced rear weight. The M4 is a bit more subtle but does have a more satisfying sound and feel than both the M2 and M6.

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.

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.
