The PING G hybrid takes the ultra consistent G30 hybrid and makes it longer.
It makes sense for a driver to be as long as possible. For many players, it even makes sense for fairway woods to simply go as far as possible. But hybrids? Should they just be long and ignore consistency, accuracy, and forgiveness? PING doesn’t think so. Their new G hybrid starts with consistency and forgiveness, and adds new technology to put it into the conversation with some of the longer hybrids on the market.
The size and shape of the PING G hybrid
are similar to the G30 hybrid, but there are a couple of noticeable differences at address. First, the G hybrid has Turbulators like the G and G30 drivers and fairway woods. Also, the thin, dark grey “top line” has been replaced with a crown that’s entirely matte black.
Sound & Feel
The sound that the PING G hybrid
makes at impact is right in the middle of the hybrid spectrum. It’s not a mini fairway wood – hollow, metallic, hot – but it’s also not entirely iron like – dull, solid, quiet. The sound is a little more bass-y, only slightly metallic, and medium volume
. The feel is a bit hotter than the sound would indicate while still being solid and providing good feedback.
The PING G hybrid has received a number of upgrades over the G30, all geared toward making it longer. The face is now made of Carpenter 455 which is stronger, thinner, and faster. Also, inside the club, there’s a Tiered Internal Sole which is designed to increase the flexing of the face and add ball speed. Finally, the most noticeable change is the addition of the Turbulators, designed to make the head more aerodynamic and faster.
All together, these additions take what was already one of the most consistent hybrids and turn it into a very consistent AND very long hybrid. It’s not as long as some of the massive, draw-biased super game improvement hybrids out there, but it will certainly keep pace with any of the hybrids geared towards average-and-better players.
For players that like the G hybrid, you’ll be able to put plenty of them in your bag. This club is available in 17, 19, 22, 26, and 30 degree versions, allowing it to replace everything from a 5W to a 6I.
If you follow PluggedInGolf regularly, you’ve read a lot of positive reviews of the new PING G clubs, and this one is no exception. But you don’t need to take my word for it that the PING G hybrid
is worth checking out – in its first month at retail, more golfers bought the G hybrid than any other.
