Unlocking more speed and distance through engineering innovations like Carbonfly Wrap without sacrificing its industry-leading forgiveness, PING has introduced the G430 family for golfers of all skill levels.
The new custom-fit, custom-built G430 family consists of three driver models (MAX, LST, SFT), three fairway wood designs (MAX, LST, SFT) in multiple lofts, six hybrid choices and an iron set (4-9, PW, 45.5°, 50°, 54°, 58°).
In the new drivers, PING’s engineering team developed several new technologies common to all three models while applying specific advancements to each individual head, producing measurable ball-speed gains while improving sound throughout the series. The added ball speed is attributed to a shallower and thinner VFT forged face design engineered with Spinsistency, a variable roll radius technology proven on the G425 fairway woods and hybrids. The improved and pleasing sound is the result of fine-tuning the frequencies of the head through a new internal rib structure.
The MAX is still the MAX
The MAX (460cc) remains the most forgiving and fits the widest range of golfers. A 25-gram, high-density tungsten moveable backweight influences shot shape ±10 yards between the Draw, Neutral and Fade settings. Loft is adjustable ±1.5° and lie up to 3° flat from standard using the 8-setting Trajectory Tuning 2.0 hosel.

Introducing the LST with CarbonFly Wrap Technology
Exclusive to the LST (Low Spin Technology) driver is Carbonfly Wrap, a lightweight composite that covers the crown and wraps into the heel/toe sections of the skirt to save weight and lower the CG for more ball speed, less spin and higher MOI. The 8-layer, one-piece composite saves four grams and weighs 11.5g fully installed. A moveable 22-gram, high-density tungsten backweight influences shot shape ±7 yards between the Draw, Neutral and Fade settings. At 440cc, the smaller tour-style LST adjustable ±1.5° and lie up to 3° flat from standard and best fits faster swing speeds or those in need of lowering spin.

New to the SFT (Straight Flight Technology)
The head (460cc) is a two-setting, moveable tungsten backweight (22g) that positions the CG to deliver 13 yards of right-to-left shot bend in the Draw setting and another 7 yards in the Draw+ (20 yards total). Adjustable ±1.5° and up to 3° flat from standard.

G430 Fairway Woods
In all the G430 fairways, we’ve developed Carbonfly Wrap to deliver more distance by positioning the CG closer to the force line to maximize 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 the lower the CG and increase ball speed. The composite also plays a role in the pleasing sound. A tungsten backweight extends the perimeter weighting to ensure forgiveness.
Two proven technologies from the previous generation carry over and contribute to distance gains and spin consistency across the clubface. With FaceWrap Technology, a variable-thickness, high-strength maraging steel face wraps into the sole and crown of the stainless steel head, 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 swingweights to help square the face at impact.

The new G430 hybrids are loaded with innovations like Carbonfly Wrap, our newest technology and the key to more distance and green-holding stopping power. Alongside proven technologies Facewrap Technology and Spinsistency, they deliver the speed and performance golfers need to take on any approach shot. With six loft options (2H/17°, 3H/19°, 4H/22°, 5H/26°, 6H/30°, 7/34°) they are ideal mid- and long-iron replacements to help fill distance gaps in a player’s game. The lightweight, 8-position hosel enables adjustments for loft (±1.5°) and lie (3° flatter than std.) to further dial in ball flight for the best results.
The Carbonfly Wrap saves eight grams of weight (compared to a steel crown) that is allocated to lower the CG for increasing ball speed while providing a pleasing sound. The thin, high strength maraging steel face wraps into the sole and crown of the stainless-steel body to increase flexing, contributing to the higher ball speeds. Spinsistency’s variable roll radius creates less loft low on the face to improve performance on thin shots by reducing spin and increasing ball speed for added distance. A tungsten backweight extends the perimeter weighting to ensure forgiveness.

The multi-material iron produces distance gains of approximately 7-10 yards and improved accuracy throughout the set. It’s the result of a complex design that combines a lower CG with stronger, custom engineered lofts and a thinner face that delivers up to 2 mph more ball speed – leading to significant distance gains without compromising PING’s famous forgiveness.

A key contributor to the added distance is the PurFlex cavity badge, an innovation with seven flex zones that allows more free bending to increase ball speed across the face. In combination with a lower CG, the badge contributes to the solid feel and pleasing impact sound. The stronger lofts across the set resulted in the addition of a 41° PW to ensure proper gapping options and allowed for standard lofts in the traditional scoring wedges (45.5°, 50°, 54°, 58°).
Among the refinements to the overall shape is a shorter hosel, which creates a more compact, clean look and helps lower the CG, aligning it closer to the force line to increase ball speed and ensure solid impact, especially low on the face. Approximately 1° of additional bounce throughout the set provides clean turf interaction and pure strikes, minimizing “heavy” shots that come up short. The high-density tungsten toe and shaft tip weights contribute to its high MOI and produce tighter dispersion patterns. The hydropearl 2.0 chrome finish delivers consistent performance from wet or dry grass.
G430 High Launch (HL)
The G430 HL build is a new full-set custom option for slower swing speed golfers who don’t generate sufficient clubhead speed and ball velocity from traditionally weighted clubs. Custom engineered with lighter backweights (11g in driver and 5.5g in fairways and hybrids), ultra-light shafts (Alta Quick 34/45) and grips (Lamkin UTx 41g), we’ve lowered the overall system weight so golfers can swing faster and generate more ball speed for higher launching, longer carrying shots across the entire set. Available in G430 MAX and SFT drivers and fairway woods, hybrids and irons.
