Ping G430 MAX HL Golf Fairway Wood
The next generation of speed - Ping G430 MAX Fairway Woods are built to be faster, more forgiving, more consistent, and packed with distance for game-changing superiority.
HL (High Launch) is a custom build designed specifically for golfers with slower swing speeds to increase distance and ball speeds. The lighter components brought about an average distance gain of 9 yards in testing thanks to a new ALTA Quick shaft, 5.5g backweight and Lamkin UTx grip.
New for G430, Ping engineers developed Carbonfly Wrap to deliver more distance by positioning the CG closer to the force line to maximise ball speed, resulting in higher, longer carries, whether fit for the MAX or SFT model. The lightweight composite crown wraps into the heel and toe sections of the skirt, creating weight savings of 10 grams which are reallocated to achieve a lower CG and increase ball speed. The composite also plays a role in the pleasing sound. A tungsten back weight extends the perimeter weighting to ensure forgiveness.
Two proven Ping technologies carry over into G430. FaceWrap Technology - a variable-thickness, high-strength maraging steel face wraps into the sole and crown of the stainless steelhead, generating more flexing for faster ball speed and higher launch for greater distance. The variable roll radius of Spinsistency improves performance across the face (especially on thin shots) by reducing spin to increase ball speed from the maraging steel face.
Each of the models is engineered to help produce added distance and forgiveness for a variety of skill levels. The MAX fits the widest range of golfers with four options (3W/15°, 5W/18°,7W/21°, 9W/24°), while the SFT is offered in three heads (3W/16°, 5W/19°, 7W/22°) with lighter swing weights to help square the face at impact. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 provides eight hosel positions, adjusting for loft (±1.5°) and lie (up to 3° flatter than std.).
