I have an issue with my club face having a hairline crack on the face of the club, toe side of center.  I play the normal G400 9degree.  Been working with driver a lot lately trying to shot shape, but never thought the face would break.  I played the g10 for almost ten years with no problem.  but decided to replace it so I could get more distance off the tee.  Has anyone else had this problem?

I did with the G30. Call PING. They'll tell you to take it to a Golf Galaxy (or similar) for inspection and then they'll replace it.

I’ve had the same thing, twice. I have the g400 lst and Ping replaced it last year as I had 3 hairline fractures in the toe. This week I’ve noticed the exact same thing happen the the replacement head so sending it back today.

I had two G400 LSTs crack and the G410 LST that Ping sent just got a hairline fracture on the toe side of the face.  They have been good about replacing, but it is a bit concerning.

I nearly broke into tears Monday when after three swings on the driving range (the last sounding a little funny) and on the third hole I pulled the headcover off my G400 LST to see this on the top of the crown. 

Good news: PING already has me a replacement on the way but they are OUT of G400 LST so they are sending me a G410 LST.

Which is pretty awesome but I'm curious if anyone who played the 400 and switched to the 410 what changes they might have seen or felt. Just curious what some of you spies might have noticed between the two models.

Also, you might be able to see from the picture but that top crown is insanely thin. They say it's the width of two pieces of paper. Pretty impressive engineering to move the weight around like that in the head.

What ball do you game? What is your swing speed? What flex shaft do you use?

I prefer the Snell MTB Black.  I have tried the Bridgestone Tour BX.  My typical "game" swing speed is about 108-110.  The driver that just cracked sounded and "acted" weird from the first ball.  I am thinking that I just had a "luck of the draw" bad head with that one.  Ping is sending a replacement.

Glad to hear Ping is replacing it!

You definitely have a good swing speed and are gaming good quality balls. 

You're probably right that it was just a defective head. 

I have known friends who have cracked heads with their 125-130mph swing speed and a friend that is around 90mph so it isn't always speed. Off-center strikes were usually the culprit.

When I cracked it I was using Srixion XV or Pro V1. Swing Speed with Driver is about 110-115 mph. X Stiff shafts tyipcally.

Just an update on the Driver. I've had the G410 plus for almost a year now. Pretty sure I'm going to be trying to swap it out for a G410 LST.

Interesting. Definitely a higher speed player problem more than me, 😉

Ha Ha. I'd love to think I actually did something to crack it but its honestly probably a minor defect in the crown. You can see from the pic that crown is paper thin. I really miss that G400 LST, They sent a G410 Plus as a replacement but to be honest after using it for a little over a year I'd rather have the 400 back. I'll probably talk to the Golf Pro that fit me and see if he has any left over head or perhaps hunt on the eBay. I loved the shaft but the head just doesn't feel that same.

I think I will be buying a g400 LST used this spring or summer. I hope it doesn't crack.

The new 425 came out, maybe you can talk to Ping about it?
