How often do Accomplished Players Need Ping G30 3 wood? -

With the release of the new G30 fairway woods, Ping is trying to blend the ball speed of today's driver-alternatives with forgiveness. The trend on the PGA Tour and among accomplished club players is to view a Ping G30 3 wood as a secondary driver and hit it primarily off the tee.

The G30 fairway woods have a chassis made from cast 17-4 stainless steel, and the hitting area has been designed with Carpenter 475 steel, a material Ping claims is 44 percent stronger. This allowed the company to make the face thinner, which increases the amount of flex created at impact, while still maintaining durability.

The trampoline effect caused by the face flexing at impact is measured in Characteristic Time (CT), and Jertson said the G30 fairway woods boast a CT around 225. That's up about 65 points from the Ping G25 3 wood, the G30's predecessor. As a reference, drivers typically have a CT of around 235.

Golfers who like to sweep the ball off the turf will appreciate the more-rounded leading edge and smooth sole design in the G30, as well as the boxier shape. "The face is able to bend more," Jertson said, "so more energy is stored and is returned to the ball at a faster rate. In our testing, we're seeing about 2 mph more ball speed when compared to the G25 fairway woods."

While Ping touts the aerodynamic benefits of the fang-like crown “turbulators” in the ping g30 driver 10.5 regular, Jertson said their addition in the G30 fairway woods primarily helps golfers frame their shots more easily. It does improve airflow and makes the flow stay more attached to the crown, but the actual benefit on clubhead speed was not to a point where we could make a claim about it.

The G30 fairway woods come standard with Ping's high-balance point TFC 419F shaft. Because more of the shaft's weight was designed higher, near the handle, Ping was able to make the ping g30 5 wood heads about 3 grams heavier.
