Ping G430 LST Fairway Wood
Who’s It For?
For many amateur golfers, fairway woods can be the trickiest clubs to hit, especially off the turf. PING understands this and has gone to work building some of the easiest fairway woods to hit in the industry, including the PING G430 fairway woods. Through a series of technologies, the PING G430 fairway woods deliver superb forgiveness and ease of use for a wide range of players. The G430 LST model, specifically, features a more forward center of gravity than the other G430 models for lower spin and launch, which will most likely benefit better players or players with faster swing speeds.
The Tech Story
Forgiveness and consistency are the two key themes PING continues to hit on with fairway woods, and the G430 fairway woods are no different. An all-new CarbonFly Wrap, which consists of an ultra-thin and lightweight composite crown that wraps into the heel and toe of the skirt, creating weight savings that are allocated throughout the clubhead to improve MOI and lower the center of gravity. Additionally, Spinsistency returns in the PING G430 fairway woods to improve performance on low-face strikes by subtly decreasing the loft, helping fight against the “ballooning” effect that can take place when the ball is struck on the bottom of the face. The multi-material design combines a 2041 Beta-Ti face, Ti 8-1-1 body, and an 80-gram tungsten sole plate to optimize the center of gravity for lower spin, lower launch, and more distance.
