Ping recently introduced their latest game improvement iron, the G710. Available at this time in only the black PVD finish, the G710 offers the same type of hollow body technology of the i500 and other heads in the golf marketplace.
The G710 is very forgiving, as it should be. Spin and distance are similar to the G410 but shot dispersion was tighter in our testing. We also tested it against the i500 and the i500 was longer due to lower spin but not as tight in dispersion.
Sound and Feel
Feel was excellent off the face on both center hits and miss-hits. Sound was not as good as the G410. A little “clicky” which is amplified as we do all of our fittings and testing indoors.
Very good performance. Pricing is up there with all of the other hollow-cavity irons so that is one drawback. I personally like the black PVD finish but it may not be for everyone. Look, sound and feel are pretty critical when evaluating which club will give you more confidence into the green!
