After a very successful launch last year of its G30 driver, PING has announced it is bringing turbulator technology and a new face material to a lower spinning version, the PING G30 LS Tec driver.

The new model has been designed to be a better fit for faster-swing-speed players who desire a lower-spinning head to give them distance with control.

How does it differ from the standard PING G30?

In comparison to the standard G30 (PING G30 driver review), the PING G30 LS Tec driver spins at 400rpm less, which is achieved from moving the centre of gravity (CG) slightly more forward than in the standard G30. The resulting change is a lower launch angle and reduced spin rate for longer distance.

As with the standard G30, crown turbulators reduce aerodynamic drag to increase clubhead speed and ball velocity for added distance, while the thin face maximises face deflection to again driver faster ball speeds for longer drives.

PING G30 LS Tec driver specifications

The PING G30 LS Tec driver comes in both 9º and 10.5º heads, with four extra loft settings available using the adjustable hosel, including +0.6º, +1º, – 0.6º and -1º.

Shaft options will include the TFC 419d, the PING Tour 65g and the PING Tour 80g, all of which encourage a lower launch with less spin.

The new driver will retail at £299.

Golf Monthly’s technical editor Paul O’Hagan and digital editor Neil Tappin have already had a chance to hit the new model. Click here to see their Ping G30 LS Tec driver review.

The G30 LS Tec launch also coincides with the unveiling of new Glide wedges and Cadence TR putters.
