    PING 2019 Drivers???

    Any whispers on a new release for 2019? Ive heard a few rumours of Ping going carbon? Id love to see it although I would assume carbon and they will probably reduce the turbulators and dragonfly would go??

    It'll be the 410 series.

    I'd bet we have/see more info soon enough.

    I'm curious to put them up against my 400's

    Ive heard January for the info and I’m hoping the talk about new adaptor doesn’t happen. Wil affect my decisions on upcoming shaft purchases.

    A bit off topic, but is there much cost or negative affect on shaft pulling/swapping adapters? Is there a limit to how many times this can be done without performance impact?

    I heard the new Ping drivers will be radically different from the 400 series. Will they be that much better than a $300 G400 LST? Time will tell...

    A good builder can do it multiple times, I've played some shafts in 5-6 different adapters/heads.

    About time they get on the carbon train. But I do wonder what that may do to prices and how they implement all the tech they put into their crown now. I'm personally not a fan of the PING shape, but I'll definitely hit the next model.

    That’s the thing. All these new ones coming out look great, but the MAX is just SO good for me. The G410, from what I’ve heard, though, is legit.

    I hope it’s not carbon, can’t stand the sound.

    To be fair, they didn't need to get on the train with the G400 series based on reviews, feedback, and popularity.

    But, I do agree its the next logical move for them to keep trying to find even more performance.

    I get that, I really do. It takes a little getting used to. Luckily, there is nothing wrong with the G400. Heck, buy a spare on closeout for when you want "new and shiny". And luckily this is all speculation and the rumor mill!

    I totally agree. With the W/S Cortex out now, I can't think of a really major US OEM that doesn't have a carbon crown driver other than PING. What they did with the metal crown and all the weight savings they squeezed out is impressive. You just can't ignore the weight savings of carbon composite, especially if they are toying with moving weights and all that which require more weight there.

    From what I’ve heard it’s going to offer more loft settings so that’s good but heard it’s not “pretty”. It’s not a big deal but I was planning to grab an attas or coool for the g400 and roll and not worry about g410 or just go to g410 later with those shafts. As you mentioned above swapping adapters isn’t a big deal. Now to rethink my approach but with recehtvtesting g400 isn’t going anywhere so g410 would have to be significant improvement in distance and/or dispersion
