Ping G430 Driver Range: A Comprehensive Review of the MAX, LFT, and SFT Models with Advanced Technology and Striking Looks

Popular amongst tour pros and club golfers alike, Ping has always had a broad customer base. The PING G425 launched in January 2021 and performed fantastically. So now the question arises: will the new G430 range live up to its reputation and take it a notch higher two years later? The line-up consists of three models: the G430 MAX, LFT, and SFT. Read on for our detailed review of the same.

TECHNOLOGY 

PING boasts the following new technologies in the G430 drivers:

Optimized T9S+ Forged Face

A face with varying thickness and a shallower design, combined with the transition design, results in increased deflection, leading to higher ball speeds and PING's most significant distance improvement yet.

Spinsistency

New to this driver family is a variable roll radius that creates less loft low on the face to improve performance by reducing spin, resulting in faster speeds that generate consistently longer drives.

Sound Engineering

A new internal rib structure with an increase in the curvature (stiffness) of the crown, skirt, and sole results in a desirable sound and impact experience.

Carbonfly Wrap

Unique to the LST model is the Carbonfly Wrap, an incredibly lightweight composite crown that envelops the skirt's heel and toe areas. The saved weight is then redistributed to effectively lower the center of gravity, thereby enhancing both ball speed and MOI (forgiveness).
