Ping G430 Family: Innovations For All
Unlocking more speed and distance through engineering innovations like Carbonfly Wrap without sacrificing forgiveness, Ping's new G430 family caters 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°).
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.
G430 Max Driver: The MAX (460cc) remains the most forgiving and fits the widest range of golfers. A 25g, high-density tungsten moveable backweight influences shot shape ±10 yards between the Draw, Neutral and Fade settings. Available in 9°, 10.5° and 12° lofts, which is adjustable ±1.5° and lie up to 3° flat from standard using the 8-setting Trajectory Tuning 2.0 hosel.
G430 LST (Low Spin Technology) Driver: Exclusive to the 440cc, tour-style LST 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 CG for more ball speed, less spin and higher MOI.
The 8-layer, one-piece composite saves 4g and weighs 11.5g fully installed. A moveable 22g, high-density tungsten backweight influences shot shape ±7 yards between the Draw, Neutral and Fade settings.
Available in 9° and 10.5° lofts (adjustable ±1.5° and lie up to 3° flat from standard) and best fits faster swing speeds.
G430 SFT (Straight Flight Technology) Driver: New to the SFT 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). Available in 10.5° loft (adjustable ±1.5° and up to 3° flat from standard.

The multi-material iron produces distance gains of approximately 7-10 yards and improved accuracy throughout the set. A complex design that combines a lower CG with stronger, custom engineered lofts and a thinner face delivers up to 2mph 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. 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°).
A shorter hosel 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, 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 Fairway Woods
In all the G430 fairways, Ping 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.
The lightweight composite crown wraps into the heel and toe sections of the skirt, creating weight savings of 10g 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. 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. 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.
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 tour-style LST (3W/15°) best fits faster swing speeds. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 provides eight hosel positions, adjusting for loft (±1.5°) and lie (up to 3° flatter than std.).

Malaysia: MAX / SFT – RM2,590
Singapore: MAX / SFT – SGD791.80
The new G430 hybrids are loaded with innovations like Carbonfly Wrap, 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.
With six loft options (2H/17°, 3H/19°, 4H/22°, 5H/26°, 6H/30°, 7/34°), the hybrids 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.
The Carbonfly Wrap saves 8g 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 for 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.

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), the overall system weight is lowered so golfers can swing faster and generate more ball speed for higher launching, longer carrying shots. Available in G430 Max and SFT drivers and fairway woods, hybrids and irons.
Note: Available at retail in Malaysia from November 11 / Singapore availability to be confirmed later
