Although the turbulators on Ping's G30 driver received much of the attention given to the G30 line of woods, it would be a mistake to look at that club and go no further.
Take the company's G30 hybrid -- a workhorse constructed of 17-4 stainless steel with a heat-treated face designed to improve springlike effect for more distance. Internal weight pads in the heel and toe raise its moment of inertia to assist mis-hits, and a weight positioned low in the sole provides a low-back center of gravity to help launch the ball higher.
The hybrids (street price: $220 each) are available in five lofts (17, 19, 22, 26, 30 degrees) with Ping's TFC 419H graphite shaft in four flexes. Oh, and no turbulators, either.
