SF Tec Fairway Woods - Straight and Fast.
Ping has lowered the leading edge on the G fairway by 3.6mm and this has the effect of moving the impact position 12% higher on the face, which makes it easier to get it airborne. The lower leading edge works with an internal Cascading Sole Design, which is essentially a thinner section just behind the leading edge on the sole that enables the sole to flex a little more to increase energy return to the ball.The straighter leading edge of the G may take a larger divot than the more curved G30, but this is a small price to pay for an easier to hit fairway. Whilst the head is still 17-4 Stainless Steel, the face is now Carpenter 455 Steel that has a 25% stronger 'yield strength' than the body so that they can make it thinner to flex more without compromising strength.The G crown has also been made 25% thinner than the G30 which saves 7g that is then moved to the sole of the club and moves the CG back just over 4.8mm. This makes the club more forgiving with the MOI increasing from heel to toe by 3% and from top to bottom by 7%. Not much, but it all helps and Ping says that the MOI of the club is 40% higher than most other clubs on the market.
The 169cc G fairway head is the same size as the G30, but has a slightly smaller footprint at address and will appeal to players of all abilities. The face of the 3-wood has the usual painted grooves, whereas the 5 and 7 woods also have real grooves in the centre of the club to help them perform better out of the wet grass. The 3-wood features a rougher surface on the face that increases friction and reduces spin by around 200rpm. The Ping designers were very excited about this as the spin change effectively comes for free as they don't have to change the dimensions of the club to achieve this. ou will see this rougher face on all Ping woods and hybrids as it is a technology that delivers down to around a 5 iron loft. After that it starts to increase spin, which is why there is rough surface between grooves on wedges. It all sounds a little counter-intuitive, but if that is what happens then no need to knock it. Previously with the G30 you just had one head, but with the G range there are two other offerings all of which come with the same high balance point Ping Alta shaft as standard.
In addition to the standard 3-, 5-, and 7-woods, G fairway woods are available in Straight-Flight Technology versions and G Stretch 3-wood. The SF Tec 3- and -5 woods have a CG closer to the heel to provide right-to-left spin (for right-handed golfers) and steer the ball back into the fairway. The G Stretch 3-wood is engineered to stretch your distance off the tee and on shots into the green with its larger head, slightly forward CG, 13º loft, and lower spin.
To fine-tune your launch conditions prior to a round, adjust the loft up to ±1° using Trajectory Tuning 2.0, which utilizes a lightweight, aerodynamically and high-strength 7075 aluminum hosel sleeve. Crown turbulators give the ball a captured appearance and aid in alignment.

|PING Driver Distance Flex Chart|
To get the most distance from your driver you must optimize the launch angle and spin rate of the ball by selecting the proper loft and shaft flex for your swing speed. Generally, golfers with slower swing speeds require more-lofted drivers and more-flexible shafts to achieve the proper launch conditions. Conversely, golfers with faster swing speeds generally require lower-lofted drivers and firmer shafts.
