Ping G410 Driver Adjustment

 

How do I adjust my Ping G410 driver?

To adjust your PING G410 driver you need to adjust the hosel settings. The available adjustments are standard dot setting, small plus setting, big plus setting, small minus setting, big minus setting, F dot setting, F minus setting and F plus setting.

There are four drivers in the Ping G410 driver series. These drivers are the Ping G410, Ping G410 Plus, Ping G410 SFT and Ping G410 LST. All four drivers come with adjustable hosels that incorporate Trajectory Tuning 2.0 technology and eight loft settings.

They help you to adjust the loft of the clubs as per your preference. This will in turn also alter the lie of the club accordingly. The first five settings have a neutral effect on the lie while the F settings result in a flat lie.

The small plus and small minus settings increase and decrease the standard loft angle by 1° respectively with no change on the lie. On the other hand, the big plus and big minus settings change the loft by +/-1.5°without affecting the lie.

The F dot setting makes no change to the default loft while the F plus and F minus settings show an increase and decrease in the loft by 1°. All three F settings help in achieving a flat lie.

Ping G410 driver flat setting

The flat setting of the Ping G410 driver will result in the start line inclined very slightly to the right. This driver offers three flat settings for the lie based on your preference. You can do this setting by following the steps given below.

  1. Keep the Ping G410 driver upright with the club head facing upward and shaft towards the ground.
  2. Insert the Torx limiting wrench into the screw present behind the club head and turn it to the left side until it slides off.
  3. Put the club head back taking care to align it with the F dot, F plus or F minus setting based on your choice. All three settings result in a flat lie with or without change to the loft as mentioned above.
  4. Set the club head back in position by turning the wrench again in the opposite direction to the right. You will usually have to do the same number of turns to the right as you did earlier to the left. You can be sure that the club head is firmly in place when you hear a clicking sound.

 

Ping G410 driver fade setting

The fade setting of the Ping G410 driver can be set by adjusting the weight on the club head according to your swing weight. This driver is equipped with a 16-gram tungsten weight on the rear that slides or moves around the club head to three different positions using the sliding weight track behind the club head.

  • Move the tungsten weight loaded in the club head towards the toe of the driver. This is ideally the position between the end of the driver and the sweet spot.
  • It’s worth noting that if you’re changing the grip of the driver from the standard one to another one of your choice, you’ll also have to consider changing the weight accordingly. Depending on how heavier or lighter the new grip is, you’ll often need to opt for a heavier weight. Similarly, if the driver has a lighter grip, a lighter weight works best.

 

Ping G410 driver lie angle adjustment

The lie angle adjustment of the Ping G410 driver is often used to refer to the draw, neutral or fade adjustment. An incorrect lie angle can have a massive impact on how straight you can hit the golf ball.

  • Lowering the lie angle can result in an upright driver that can promote a draw. Increasing it from the standard setting can result in a fade.
  • Adjusting the club head so that it is aligned with either the Fdot, F plus or F minus settings results in a flat lie angle.
  • Adjusting the club head so that it is aligned with either the standard dot, big or small plus or big or small minus settings makes no change to the standard lie angle.

 

How to adjust Ping G410 Plus driver

The adjustment of the Ping G410 Plus is the same as that of the Ping G410 driver. The driver features an aerodynamic and lightweight adjustable hosel that offers eight different settings including the standard dot setting. These comprise of five different loft settings and three lie angle settings. The lie angle adjustments make the driver up to 3° flatter than the normal driver.

  1. Place the Ping G410 driver vertically such that the club head is on the top and the screw behind.
  2. Put the Torx limiting wrench into the screw and turn it leftward until you can take it off.
  3. Replace the club head after aligning it with the big plus, big minus, small plus or small minus setting.
  4. Secure the club head in its place by tightening the screw that was loosened earlier. To do this, you’ll have to turn the wrench in the opposite direction by the same number of turns you did to the left. A click sound ensures that the club head is set in position.

The big plus and big minus settings will increase and decrease the loft angles by 1.5°. However, this will not make any change to the standard lie angle.

The small plus and small minus settings will increase and decrease the loft angles by 1°. Like the big plus and minus settings, these settings will also not affect the default lie angle.

 

Ping G410 Plus driver flat setting

Like the Ping G410 driver, the Ping G410 Plus driver also has three dedicated flat settings. The adjustment is similar to the adjustment for this driver mentioned above with just a small change.

  • Set the club head to be in line with the F dot setting on the hosel. This will not affect the standard loft but will flatten the lie angle.
  • Align the club head so that it is in line with the F plus or F minus setting on the hosel. This will increase or decrease the default loft by 1°. Both these settings will also flatten the lie angle like the F dot setting.

 

How to adjust Ping G410 Plus driver hosel settings

The hosel settings of the Ping G410 Plus driver with one of the 8 settings marked on the hosel.

  1. The standard 0 setting results in no change to the default loft as well as the lie angle.
  2. The small plus setting increases the loft by 1° with no change to the standard lie angle.
  3. The big plus setting increases the loft by 1.5° without change to the default lie angle.
  4. The small minus setting decreases the loft by 1° with a neutral lie angle.
  5. The big minus setting decreases the loft by 1° with a neutral lie angle.
  6. The F dot setting results in no change to the loft but flattens the default lie.
  7. The F plus setting increases the loft by 1° and flattens the standard lie.
  8. The F minus setting decreases the loft by 1° and flattens the normal lie.

 

How to adjust Ping G410 LST settings

The LST in the Ping G410 LST driver represents Low Spin Technology. The driver has a higher moment of inertia compared to the earlier Ping G400 LST by 3%. It is a good choice for slicers as well as those who want to reduce their spin and increase the distance.

  1. Keep the Ping G410 LST driver upright with the club head upward and remove it by loosening the screw on its back using a Ping Torx limiting wrench.
  2. Replace the club head by aligning it against the desired adjustment setting marked on the hosel as mentioned for the Ping G410 and Ping G410 Plus drivers. Depending on the setting chosen, the loft and/or lie angle will or will not change.
  3. Fasten the club head in position once again by turning the same wrench in the opposite direction. You can stop the turning action when you hear a click sound.

 

How to adjust Ping G410 SFT settings

The SFT in the Ping G410 SFT denotes represents Straight Flight Technology. As the name indicates, the driver is apt for golfers who want their ball to have a straight flight. The light swing weight also helps them to square the clubface when there is an impact. In short, this is a very forgiving driver.

  1. Hold the Ping G410 LST driver vertically such that the club head is at the top.
  2. Take off the club head by removing the screw on its rear with a Ping Torx limiting wrench.
  3. Put the club head after aligning it with the preferred adjustment setting out of the marked eight hosel adjustments. These adjustments are the same as any driver in the Ping G410 series. The loft along with the lie angle will or will not get changed accordingly.
  4. Fix the club head in place using the same wrench. A click sound confirms that the club head is seated securely.
