Finally!!! PING G710 Irons Revealed

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

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.

I would say they improved the looks right off the bat, and from reading the blog peice on it, the finish and sound have been improved.  So these could be a real winner!

These look amazing. Why do they come out with shiny new toys that make you want new ones every year?! No chance I can afford them, but the local golf shop might get a visit so I can hit them...

I saw these pop up on YouTube this morning with 2nd Swing and Crossfield and had to give them a watch. They definitely look better that the G700's IMO, and that's saying something because I absolutely loved the looks of them. Can't wait to see them in person.

Sometimes less really is more, I like the simple and clean aesthetic. These will appeal to a wide range of player ability.

I also think that between the black color and some slight tweaking that top line looks a nice bit thinner than the G700 and with a little less off-set it would not at address look too far off from the I500s currently in my bag. Really sharp looking.

Such a great looking SGI! I think that will be a huge hit! I'm curious if i510 will have the same finish.

Hope they do but when the weather is cooperating. Ping wouldn’t do anything until the PGA show is history.
To me they (pix) don’t look like SGI irons which should help sales.

I like the way the left the club face stainless and rest of club is black. I’ve always loved the black look....but, they look like crap after a few rounds. This might be their answer to that problem!! Good looking club.

Are they still using the"hydroperal 2.0" finish?  I'm on the fence with the two tone color... at least based on pics.  Maybe I'll like them more when I see them firsthand. I agree that it does not jump out as a SGI club, particularly from the top, and that will definitely help sales.

Wow, I’m gonna make a bold statement and say those are the best looking SGI clubs ever made... I’ll also say that these will be the some of the top SGI clubs of the year. Really slick looking clubs.

From the Blog article: 

“A double-layered hydropearl stealth finish. The first layer is a standard chrome plating. The next layer is a thin black PVD coating and the hydrophobic elements help repel water and offer better performance in wet conditions. 

Two layers should prove to be more durable than one. However, the choice of PVD is a bit curious. Dark colors allow large items to appear somewhat smaller which comes in handy on bigger irons such as the G710.”
