The PING G LS Tec driver offers similar forgiveness to the G driver, but with measurably lower spin. The perfect option for high spin players.
While PING’s G driver, like the G30 before it, is the best overall driver in golf, the G LS Tec will be, for many players, the longest. While the G has low spin, the G LS Tec takes things even lower to optimize launch conditions and maximize distance for players with excessive spin rates.
The PING G LS Tec driver is virtually indistinguishable from the PING G driver at address. If you really look for differences, the G LS Tec sits a bit more open at address and the face looks a hair taller. The similarities, though, are numerous. Both have PING’s newest hallmarks on the crown: Turbulators and Dragonfly Technology. They also share the large, round footprint.
Sound & Feel
Like the other G drivers, the stock shaft is the counter balanced Alta. The counter balancing is needed to keep the swing weight in a normal range with the heavier head. PING also offers a Tour shaft that is heavier and stiffer.
What I was impressed with is the forgiveness of the G LS Tec. PING is pretty up front in saying that the “cost” of lower spin is forgiveness. That said, the G LS Tec is likely forgiving enough for any player in the mid-teens or better.
