Using the adjustment settings on the Ping G410 driver, you can increase or decrease the loft by up to 1.5°. The lie angle can also be flattened by up to 3° to adjust your draw or fade settings.
To do this, you first need to understand the Ping G410 driver adjustment chart. I will provide the chart and explain it so that you can easily adjust the driver. You will also learn the adjustment process by the end of the guide. Let’s get started with the chart.
The following chart shows the eight available options for loft and lie settings. Check the chart first, and then I will explain the settings.
|Small Plus (+)
|Big Plus (+)
|Small Minus (-)
|Big Minus (–)
Ping G410 driver comes with an adjustable hosel. You can tweak the settings to achieve the perfect loft angle for your shots. The lie is also adjustable for fade or draw settings.
This is the standard setting on your Ping G410 driver. With this setting, the driver will have its standard loft. The standard loft can be different for various G410 models. I will use the G410 Plus model with a loft of 9° as the example for this guide.
If your driver is in the Dot setting, it will have the standard loft of 9°. And the lie will be neutral at 59°. The standard setting is suitable for players with no tendency to hook or slice.
Small Plus Setting
The small plus setting is for increasing the loft angle by 1.0°. So, the final loft of your G410 Plus driver in this setting will be 10.0°. This setting doesn’t change the lie angle, so that will remain at 59°.
With this setting, you get a slightly better lift than the standard setting. So, the ball trajectory will be suitable for higher carry distances.
Big Plus Setting
This setting is for increasing the loft angle by 1.5°. In this setting, the loft of your driver will be 10.5°. And the lie setting will be neutral as before. The neutral lie setting is suitable for players who have the correct angle of attack and square clubface.
Small Minus Setting
The Ping G410 driver will start losing its loft angle in this setting. To be accurate, the loft angle will decrease by 1° in the small minus setting. So, the final loft will be 8°. A lower loft will result in a lower lift. There is a misconception that a lower loft might increase the carry distance. But that isn’t true.
No lie angle changes will happen in this setting, and the sole of the club will stay neutral.
Big Minus Setting
This setting decreases the loft angle of the driver by 1.5°. So, your driver will have a loft angle of 7.5° after the adjustment. Like the previous settings, it won’t affect the lie angle.
The last three settings on the chart are related to the lie angle. Among these settings, the first one is the F setting, where the loft angle will remain constant. But the lie angle will be 3° flatter. It means the club head will lean more towards the toe.
This setting adjusts both the loft angle and the lie of your driver. In the F+ setting, your driver will have an increased loft of 1°. And the lie will be flat. With a greater loft angle and flatter lie, it will be useful for correcting your draw or fade.
The eighth setting on the G410 club also adjusts the loft and lie at the same time. In this setting, the loft will decrease by 1°. So, you will have a loft angle of 8° on your driver. Besides, the lie will be flat.
The Ping G410 driver has an adjustable hosel. You can easily change the orientation of the shaft to select different settings. Let me guide you through the adjustment process for convenience.
- Ping G410 driver
- Ping Torx wrench
- Step 1: Turn the driver upside down so that you can work on the hosel easily. Securing the shaft is better because it will help you unscrew the head quickly.
- Step 2: Take the Ping wrench and insert it into the hosel. The screw is at the back of the head.
- Step 3: Turn the wrench counterclockwise. You will hear a clicking sound when the screw loosens. Make sure the screw is completely out of the shaft.
- Step 4: Take the head apart from the shaft. You might need to apply some pressure to remove the head.
- Step 5: Now, rotate the shaft to select the desired loft and lie set. For example, if you want to only increase the loft a bit, you can align the small plus sign on the shaft with the tiny arrow on the head. Insert the head into the shaft in this position.
- Step 6: Insert the screw and tighten it with the wrench. Rotate it clockwise until you hear the click sound.
The adjustable weight on the G410 driver allows you to adjust the driver for draw, neutral, or fade biases. Here is how you can adjust this setting.
- You need to move the weight to the closest designated position to the heel of the club.
- Unscrew the weight first using the wrench.
- Then, move it towards the heel. The position is marked with the word DRAW.
- Insert the screw and tighten it.
This is the standard position in the center. The driver will come with this setting. So you don’t need to do anything.
- Simply unscrew the weight and move it toward the toe.
- The position is marked with the word FADE.
- Insert the screw and tighten the weight.

Q: What is the difference between a neutral lie and a flat lie?
A neutral lie is when the driver stays parallel to the ground at the address. But when it is flat, the shaft will be leaned towards the toe.
Q: How does the club face change when I adjust the loft on the G410 driver?
Increasing the loft angle of your G410 driver will make the clubface more open. On the other hand, decreasing the loft angle closes the clubface.
