G430 MAX

You can size up long approach shots with 100% confidence that your G430 fairway will get you home. We’re introducing Carbonfly Wrap technology to deliver more distance by positioning the CG closer to the force line to maximize ball speed, resulting in higher, longer carries. MAX available in 3W, 5W, 7W, 9W. 

PING G430 MAX Technology

    Carbonfly Wrap

    Carbonfly Wrap, an ultra-lightweight composite crown, wraps into the heel and toe sections of the skirt. Weight savings are reallocated to lower the CG and increase ball speed and MOI (forgiveness). The composite also plays a role in the pleasing sound.

    Facewrap Technology

    The variable-thickness, high-strength maraging steel face wraps into the sole and crown, and it's thin to flex more, generating faster ball speed with higher launch for greater distance.

    A variable roll radius creates less loft low on the face to improve performance (especially on thin shots) by reducing spin, resulting in faster speeds that generate consistently longer results.

    Trajectory Tuning 2.0 utilizes a lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions to customize your trajectory for maximum distance and accuracy.
  • Trajectory Tuning Chart

    The lightweight, 8-position hosel enables adjustments for loft (±1.5°) and lie (up to 3° flatter than std.) to further dial in your ball flight for the best results.

    G430 High Launch (HL)

    A 5.5-gram aluminum backweight, PING Alta Quick shaft (35/45), and 41-gram Lamkin UTx Lite grip make up the lighter HL build so players with slower swing speeds can generate more clubhead speed to produce faster ball velocity and higher launch.   
  • PING shafts available with G430 Fairway Wood

    PING-Engineered Shafts

    The PING Alta CB Black offers mid-high to high launch, the PING Tour 2.0 Chrome mid launch, and the PING Tour 2.0 Black promotes the lowest trajectory. 
  • Optional shafts available with G430 Fairway Wood

    Optional Shafts

    The Project X Hzrdus Smoke Red RDX provides a higher launch, the Mitsubishi Kai’Li White launches lower.

  • These are design specifications that may vary due to manufacturing tolerances.
  • Standard swingweight is based on ALTA CB Black Stiff shaft.
  • Standard swingweight for the MAX HL (High Launch) build with the ALTA Quick shaft is C8 in the 35 and C9 in the 45.
  • Lie angle is an average of the five adjustable loft positions indicated on the hosel.
  • Achievable swingweights depend on shaft, length and grip combinations.
  • Available in left- and right-handed models.

Maximizing your distance and accuracy on long shots from the fairway is accomplished by matching the correct shaft flex for your swing. The goal is to achieve the correct trajectory with the fairway wood, which maximizes distance with the longer woods and minimizes roll with the shorter woods.

Generally, the same shaft type and flex as your driver will produce the optimal trajectory in fairway woods, but it is not uncommon for players to have a different shaft brand, type and/or flex in their fairway woods since they are ground-impact clubs and may perform differently for some players.

We recommend that you get fit for the shaft that allows you to play your best golf. Whether that’s a softer, lighter shaft with a higher launch or a heavier, stiffer shaft with a lower trajectory, a PING Certified Club Fitter can help you find the shaft that brings consistency to your game.

PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight.

PING color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
