They're He-eere!!!!
Arrived this morning and we were at the driving range/course within the hour.
Initially warming up it took me a few swings to get the feel for the setup and takeaway with the different lie angle. 
I got out on the course and first hole was a GIR with the U-wedge from about 115. From there it was still a bit of feeling them out but by the time I got to the back 9 I was really comfortable making aggressive full swings.
I'm still adjusting my eye to these at setup with the slightly large club head and a little more offset. It took backing off a couple of shots and verifying the club face was square to the target line and then building my setup from there. Then just believing the setup was square and swinging through.
Ball flight was not noticeably higher than the Hogan or Mizuno sets I'm comparing. My misses today were mostly just hangers out to the right, and only one of my trademark monster hooks.
I was able to sneak that quick warm-up and round in before work so it was a quick first effort. I'll have a chance to give them a more detailed workout later in the week.

Yea. How much of a difference is there in Lie Angle from your previous clubs?

They're here!  So lets look at this timeline for a second, I was fit on Sunday afternoon and the clubs were at my door tonight when I got home from my football game.  They were built, packaged and shi

Looking forward to doing my fitting for these. I've only had one iron fitting and it was for a set of single length irons in February in Rhode Island the day after an 18 inch snowstorm. It w

I'll have to re-check the specs but these are 2* upright (Blue dot) and 3/4" longer than standard. The Mizzy set was 1/2" long but I'm pretty sure with standard lie angles. The Hogan set was standard/standard. So the un-researched guess is just 2* more upright.

Early on on the range that meant leaving a lot of shots right. But as I got comfortable with the setup I was hitting just about everything down the line.

Side note and shameless self promotion - if you are looking for courses in the Tampa area to play I've done some reviews in a couple of threads - one for my summer league and I just started another for some of the local courses. Today's round was at Bloomingdale

My change was from 2’ up to 2’ flat and that 4’ difference was a challenge. Seems to be working OK now.
Have fun

Glad to see they finally arrived. That's a nice looking bag you've got there. Go out, have fun, and we can't wait to see how they work out for you!

Keep the reviews coming! I might be able to squeeze another round or two in before the weather gets too bad and the holidays ramp up.  These are definitely on my short list for winter shopping

I played Bloomingdale a few years ago when I was in Tampa for a conference. Fun course! Very friendly atmosphere.  Also played TPC Tampa and Rocky Point.  All were very different experiences. All very fun!

@GregB they look beautiful - glad you got them.
@RickP his reviews of area course are spot on, informative and insightful.

Can we shoot for a MGS putting sometime between Christmas and January 4? Perhaps @ World Woods? We could include Foz.

I’d love to see those irons and show off my Ping Long Game stuff as well.

As Rob put it, the 'blue and white' truck should be arriving some time early this week. (one actually did a drive-by tease while I was waiting in the driveway for a pickup to the golf course yesterday)

I nominate @GregB135as MGS's "Most Patient Member"... hard to believe it's taken this long to receive the new arrows 😕.  

***Update*** you got them!! What happens when you're trying to catch up on a thread.  You still get my nomination 👍.

Thanks Rev!
I’d love to be part of a MGS outing any time. Let’s try to make it happen. The timing you suggest should work.

Played 9 this morning and 45’ @ Tee Time needed long pants!!
First 5 holes nothing worked but last 4 holes Parred out.
The 5-6 irons need “special help” possible range time Saturday. Short irons last 4 holes we’re awesome, decent distance, accuracy and height.
I think I’m only going to play last 4 holes from now on

I appreciate that. It really was Ping taking care of the customer though. At the time of the order, they did not have the shafts I was fit for on hand (un-sure if that was a matter of length or just stock). Then, when the shafts arrived, one had a blemish that Ping would not send out to a customer so they had to re-order at least one shaft. It was nice to receive them after the delay. Now I just need to catch up on the review process (SWMBO may not see as much of me for a bit 😜)

Got in another round yesterday.

Focusing on ball flight here is what I noticed. Still not significantly higher than my other irons. The ball dis seem to hold its peak height a little longer though.
I had a couple of shots in the round that I knew were just flushed and those had about a 1 to 1 1/2 clubs worth of distance gain. I had another couple of shots that just hung out right rather than turning over into my typical draw, and not losing much of the target yardage. Looking at the club on those shots I saw contact out near the toe.
The longer irons did give me a little more hook than draw, at least for now I’ll accuse the increased offset as the culprit (I know the swing has as much guilt to share though).
I’ve got a lesson booked early next week to help fine tune the swing to the lie angle setup.

Did you get the power lofts or standard G410 lofts?  I have noticed I am having a hard time too hitting a draw.  The one thing though is these clubs are pretty damn straight!

My observation as well.  For the first few weeks, I had some extended pauses picking a club from the quiver... whilst I did some math in my head.  Being long more often was a goal I had set prior to getting the G410's - and these have helped.

Standard loft profile on mine. There was some tweaking of the shaft choices during the fitting to try to avoid the ball flight getting too high. My normal ball flight is usually a draw/almost hook. A lot of my lesson time has been focusing on path and face control to make it more predictable and to lessen the over-draw tendency. So far I haven't seen a huge change to ball flight with the 410s. I was really impressed though when the toe hit shot that usually results in the weak push about a club short of target carried all the way to the target distance.

Played Friday “Bacon Boys” on one of the toughest Executives.
The trend continued, 5, 6 and even 7 not performing like I’m used to BUT the 8, 9, and wedges are higher and slightly longer.
Going to range over the weekend and pit my previous 6i against the G410 6i.
Tried to get a lesson booked but nothing available for next few weeks with the Snowbird Flock in full form. Hoping to get a cancellation with the Teaching Pro I trust.
Maybe the Lie angle needs adjusting on the longer irons?
