    Use the 12 degree G5 which has cured my slice. Excellent buy and great confidence off the tee. What better could there be.

  • By jimmerA

    I've just started playing after a five year break and have never been able to hit a driver....ever. The club pro recommended I try this one out with 13.5 degree loft to see how I got on as he reckoned I might be ok with this one. I couldnt do a thing wrong with it, all drives except one were long and straight...there was no way I could leave the course without buying it. If I can use this club and get these results, then anyone can!

  • By George Hunter

    I absolutely love the G5. It is the most accurate club I have hit, relatively long, looks great and inspires confidence. It is reasonably priced (comapared to some of it's friends) and I loved it the moment I started hitting it. I had just grown into mens clubs and decided to try out a few drivers. I went down to my local Pro Shop and picked a few out including the G5 (12 degree), a Talormade R7 draw (13 and 10.5 degree and a Calaway Big Bertha. After hitting a huge number of balls I had narrowed it down to the G5 and the 13 degree R7. In the end I plodded for the G5 and have never regretted my decision. I would recommend it to most people but try it out first. Just because it works for one person doesn't mean it will work for us all.

    just bought one after trying several different options at a Ping demo day . Please talk to their rep , and they will suggest a suitable model ( shaft , loft ,etc). I bought a 10.5 degree with a soft tip regular shaft ,and I love it to bits . So easy to hit it straight , I can't belive it !!!

    Just added this to my bag and for a small guy/average handicapper I have been hitting it past the 300 yard mark on many occasions!

  • By Icyberjunkie

    Not my comments but my playing buddies "Keep at it because I've never seen you hit it so straight!" says it all. I bought this driver to try and solve my fade and it has - completely. A great looking and sounding driver and once used to the size of the head easy to use. Forget the really tall tee's though. I found I skied it left on a silver graduated tee so now tee down. Try it and you'll buy it. Definately worth the money. Oh, and I gained about 20 yards too.

    what a grest driver i have played with this driver for about 18 months and i can hit this driver 300 yards with carry, its forgiving and a easy club to hit, i would not swap this driver for any other!

    I've switched to this driver in the autumn after having a 440sz cobra for a couple of years and the 370 unlimited before that. Compared to the cobra it's easier to use and more forgiving and sits nicely behind the ball for a 460cc club. It also feels nice off the face and you can really tell when you hit one out of the middle. I'm told it'll come into it's own once the better weather gets here and the ball starts to roll, so it'll be interesting to see if this is correct. There's loads of shaft and loft options, so make sure you get the one which suits you best. As testiment to this club I've since been out and bought the 3 & 5 woods to match. If you shop around and haggle you can get them at a good price now the far more expensive raptures are out there (I tried the rapture 14 degree 3 wood and in my opinion it wasn't worth the extra £100) I paid £170 for the driver, which for a premium club was fantastic value.

    I had never being able to use my driver and always ended on the tee with a 3 iron. Decided it was time to change things. Splashed out and after test driving a lot of drivers settled for the G5 just 6 weeks ago (actually ended up with the complete G5 set). It was by far the most comfortable driver I had tried, the most forgiving with the sweetest of sweet spots. Did the whole custom fit thing, essential by the way. When you strike the ball you hardly know you’ve connected with it and as for the sweet PING sound, Pure Class. Slight fade and lots of distance is what I get. Bring on the par 5’s make them feel like a long par 4. Hole 10, par 4, at Hoebridge, drive the green!!!! Seriously. Always been a mid 90’s player, now, in just 6 weeks, a mid to low 80’s. Ping has changed my game and my enjoyment for it, forever. Thanks PING. I’ll never look back

    I had been using the MP001 400cc driver from mizuno for years which is a very reliable driver, but this is something else!! i realise the clubhead would be bigger hence more distance, but i did not realise how easy this club would be to use!!! I have the 10.5 degree stiff shaft driver and it goes miles!!!!!! thanks to the length of the tee i no longer have to rely on the rescue woods (I hate those things) to get me close to have a go at the par 5's - i can now reach most of them with an iron!!! the sound, the feel the looks of this club are magnificant and the confidence i feel when addressing my ball is inspiring!! roll on the weekend so i can crunch another drive...........

    I had been playing a Ping Si3 380 for about 3 years, until i tested out the G5 at the start of the season. It is an amazing club, long, straight, forgiving, looks good- all you could ask for! Definitely worth your money

  • By Anonymous

    An excellent club. I have mine around 6 months and ive never looked back. Will knock the socks off any of the other premium drivers on the market. Definitely worth the buy!

    I had to rate this as 5 Star as I have never been able to hit a driver in my life. I bought the G5 that suited my swing and Hey Presto. Brilliaint. Four strokes off my first round . Cant wait till we get some decent weather for some more run on the ball.

  • By Anonymous

    I just got one of these after replacing my old driver with my 3 wood because litrally I couldnt keep it on the fairway but I tried the G5 and it was great I found it much more forgiving than other drivers I tested, also I tried my friends r7 460 after and hit the G5 over 10 yards further.

  • By Anonymous

    I just got one of these drivers after using a Taylormade r7 425 for over a year and have added 10 yards and consistency to my drivers. This club is the best i've used!

Ping G5 Driver

12″ Fixed Head 460cc

45.25″ Long

Fitted with Ping TFC100 Reg Flex shaft

Ping Black Grip

Non-Original Headcover

This club has been graded ‘Average’ in our condition guide meaning it shows the normal signs of fair wear & tear of a club of its age. Please see our condition guide for more information.

 

For details of this product from Ping at time of launch please see below:

460cc titanium head on the new Ping G5 driver features internal weighting distribution that re-positions the centre of gravity for lower spin rates and greater distance.

Eight grams of weight was moved from the crown and face to the sole to achieve the lower centre of gravity location.

Similar in shape to the popular Ping G2 driver, the confidence-inspiring head provides forgiveness and includes a thinner moon-graphic alignment aid.

New face geometry ensures high ball speed for maximum distance and lower spin rates allowed the engineers to increase the available lofts.

Trying out the New Ping G5 Driver - CNN Living Golf - 2005

Field Use

With the correct shaft and head combination, golfers will be pleasantly surprised with the overall distance of the Ping G5 driver. The driver has a nice hollow sound and isn't extremely loud, like other drivers on the market. The club feels light, which helps maximize club head speed. The ball feels like it jumps off the club face, providing a few yards of extra carry. The driver produces a mid- to high-ball flight and is fairly forgiving. Off-center hits still travel close to a pure hit. Golfers will potentially see more carry distance and less roll with the Ping G5. The higher ball flight could make playing in the wind a little difficult.

Pros and Cons

It is difficult to find negatives with the Ping G5 driver. Some people may not like the half moon alignment aid on top of the club. However, that should not deter someone from playing the club. The club's performance is outstanding when it comes to accuracy, forgiveness and distance. However, in windy conditions the club did not perform quite as well. In the wind, the ball flight ballooned. When this club was new, there was basically no chance of finding it for under $ due to Ping's pricing policies. Now that the driver is a few years old, it is relatively easy to find it for under $

Bottom Line

The Ping G5 quickly became one of the hottest drivers in golf. Golfers often replace drivers when they find something better. Even a few years after its release, the G5 is still in many golfers' bags. The G5 is one of the best drivers Ping has created. It creates an outstanding, penetrating ball flight while optimizing distance. With the correct head and shaft combination, it is tough to find a better driver. Whether you have a high handicap or a low one, this driver will benefit you. If you purchase one, take the time to meet with a certified Ping club fitter. Ping has a loyal following, and this driver should continue to attract new customers to the Ping line.
