Ping’s G5 driver is a proven stick but
the new G10 has it beat. That’s
because the G10 boasts faster ball
speeds (by 1 to 2 mph), higher
moment of inertia (7 percent) and
lower spin rates (200 to 400 rpm less)
than the G5.
Ping says the output is
five to 10 yards more carry, plus a
shallower landing angle for more roll.
The G10’s updated head geometry
includes a taller face that increases
face flex (higher ball speed) with a
more abrupt transition from the
crown’s highest point to the rear.
addition, the clubface and crown are
lighter and thinner than in G5. This
redirects six to eight grams lower
(reducing spin rate) and farther back
(increasing launch angle and
A second driver, the
G10 Draw, has more heel-side
weight and a forward hosel (not
offset) to help it close.
