Five of our trusted members have been selected to test and review the Tommy Armour Atomic irons and report back their findings to the forum. Their journey with these irons has begun and below you will first read their Stage 1 reviews which will give you some insight to the person behind the forum name and learn a bit about their game to see if what they find in these irons will relate to your game. Along with that they will share some pictures of the clubs straight out of the box and give us some initial thoughts on them. So tune in and follow their journey over the next 4 to 6 weeks as they see if they can gain more distance in their iron game and more importantly, see if that translates to lower scores.

For months now there has been talk of the upcoming G710 irons an update to the ultra successful G710 irons released in 2017. One of the best looking game improvement irons on the market, how could PING improve on them. Well read and SEE below for yourself. PING introduces G710 distance iron with Arccos Caddie Smart Grips PHOENIX (January 20, 2020): In the new G710 irons, PING engineers deliver golfers more distance and forgiveness in a sleek, dark finish, PING President John K. Solheim announced today. The new irons are available for custom fitting and pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today. “The G710 iron is our longest, most forgiving iron to date. It’s engineered for golfers who want to maximize both distance and forgiveness,” Solheim said. “In designing it, we also advanced other important attributes such as consistency, sound and feel without sacrificing performance. The hydropearl stealth chrome finish gives it a very sleek and attractive look. It’s a beautiful, high-performance design that will have broad appeal for golfers who want to hit the ball longer and straighter. Solheim also announced the new G710 irons come standard with Arccos Caddie Smart Grips and a free trial of the Arccos Caddie app. “I personally started using Arccos more than a year ago and have seen significant improvement across my entire game,” he said. “It helps me during a round with club selection, and I really enjoy analyzing all the data after the round to uncover areas to help me play better. The Arccos Caddie app is a tremendous shot-tracking tool to help golfers lower their scores and have more fun on the course.” Precision Machined, Maraging Steel Face One of the strongest aerospace-grade alloys in the world, maraging steel provides strength and flexibility for launching shots higher and farther. High durability coupled with a machined variable-thickness face make an ideal pairing for distance. “We’ve continued to employ maraging steel in several products where maximizing face flexing is a performance priority,” said Solheim. “Our engineers have optimized the bending of the G710 face to increase ball speeds for more distance and higher trajectories, producing shots that land softer and hold the green. It’s a distance iron that delivers consistent distance, a very rare combination for an iron of this type.” 5% Higher MOI High-density tungsten toe and heel weights optimally positioned in the 17-4 stainless body increase the MOI by 5% compared to the G700, producing exceptional forgiveness for more distance and accuracy, especially for mid-to-high handicaps and slower swing speeds. “Forgiveness continues to be at the top of our list when it comes to iron design,” Solheim said. “In a hollow-body design, our goal is to balance a variety of attributes to help golfers hit the ball significantly farther while hitting more greens. The G710 iron’s extremely high MOI is a result of strategically positioning weight on the toe and inside the hosel to make it our most forgiving iron. We’ve also greatly enhanced the feel and sound through extensive modal analysis, which helped us eliminate certain undesirable frequencies.” Hydropearl Stealth Chrome Finish A hydropearl chrome finish with black PVD coating provides hydrophobicity to repel water and improve performance through the turf and in wet conditions. The two-stage coating process ensures durability and the darker finish creates the perception of a smaller, more compact head. Alta Distanza Black 40 Graphite Shaft The proprietary PING shaft is a no-upcharge option in the G710 iron and offers the lightest weight and max trajectory height available in a PING iron shaft. A more active tip in the 43-gram shaft delivers higher trajectories and best matches golfers with slower swing speeds. Arccos Caddie Smart Grip & Arccos Caddie app The Arccos Caddie Golf Pride 360 Tour Velvet Smart Grip is standard on every G710 iron in one of three sizes (Aqua -1/64", White Std., Gold +1/32"). Each iron is custom built with an embedded sensor in the grip to automatically record and analyze every shot taken during a round when paired with the Arccos Caddie app. Golfers receive a 90-day free trial of the app (then $99.99 annual subscription) and eight additional screw-in sensors at no charge after the purchase of six or more G710 irons. Fulfillment of the additional free sensors comes directly from PING and requires users to first download the Arccos Caddie app. G710 Iron Specifications: Multi-material design: Hollow-body 17-4 stainless steel head, plasma-welded maraging steel face, machined face and grooves, tungsten toe and hosel weights Finish: Hydropearl Stealth Available 4-9, PW, UW, SW in 10 color codes (lie angle).

This one has been talked about in small dark corners of the equipment nerds universe for a bit now, but it is sure to create a lot of buzz at the PGA Show this week, something very new and different for Titleist. Press Release From Titleist FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 20, 2020) – The new easy-launching, super distance Titleist T400 irons are designed to provide moderate swing speed golfers with the most forgiving Titleist experience possible. Available for fittings Feb. 27 (and in golf shops March 27), the new Titleist T400 irons utilize an advanced split sole design, super-thin face and wide body, hollow head construction fortified by extreme amounts of high-density tungsten to help golfers effortlessly launch it higher and hit it farther. The addition of T400 to the strikingly new line of Titleist T-Series irons – joining the T100, T100•S, T200 and T300 models – ensures that every player is able to experience the engineering ingenuity and breakthrough performance that has made Titleist the longstanding #1 iron on the PGA Tour. “T400 is the super distance Titleist iron. This club is engineered to get the ball in the air and launch it as far as possible, even when the strike isn’t perfect,” Josh Talge, Vice President of Marketing, Titleist Golf Clubs. “There are so many golfers, particularly players with moderate swing speeds, who can benefit from this technology. T400 gets the absolute most out of your swing while still providing the playability of a Titleist iron along with that look, sound and feel that dedicated players demand.” T400 PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY Designed to help moderate swing speed players score lower, the new T400 irons maximize performance on every shot through the following key technologies: • Wide body shape with advanced Split Sole design provides optimal turf interaction for a smooth and easy strike. • Hollow head construction produces an extremely high MOI that maximizes forgiveness on off center shots. • Extreme High-density tungsten weighting (up to 100g per head) creates a low CG, working in combination with a super-thin forged SUP-10 L-Face Insert (5-7 irons) to produce explosive launch off the turf. • Progressive set design – with progressive blade lengths, sole widths and hosel lengths – delivers optimal CG positioning with preferred shaping through the set. • Lightweight materials – with stock grip and shaft options – promote increased swing speeds for longer distance. FREE TRIAL & FITTINGS Beginning Feb. 27, golfers can experience the performance of T400 irons by attending a Titleist Fitting and Trial event (including Titleist Thursdays), being held at hundreds of locations nationwide. To find an event, or book a free T-Series iron fitting with a Titleist Product Specialist, golfers can visit https://www.titleist.com/fitting/appointments. LIGHTWEIGHT STOCK SHAFTS & GRIP T400 offers premium lightweight graphite and steel aftermarket options to help moderate swing speed players maximize performance. The Mitsubishi Fubuki MV IR – MV stands for “Maximum Velocity” – produces higher ball speed through its ultra-lightweight iron-specific graphite design. The steel True Temper AMT Red offers tour-proven ascending mass technology, with lighter long iron shafts for increased launch and speed and heavier short iron shafts for control. • Graphite: Mitsubishi Fubuki MV IR | Mid-High launch, mid spin | 50g • Steel: True Temper AMT Red | High launch, mid-high spin | 95-107g (3g per club) In addition, Titleist offers an industry-leading number of custom shaft choices, many at no upcharge.
