Finally!!! PING G710 Irons Revealed

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

They look really nice.  I love the cleaner lines of this and who doesn't like black clubs.  A few concerns however, how long will the black face last?  I have seen tons of black irons before and over time (usually half a season sometimes more) you start to see wear marks on the face and bottom of the club.  My second dislike is the large offset.  Don't get me wrong, I know why it's there, I just don't like it.  Out of the box though they look really nice!

Actually the faces remained Gray with just the toe and heel in black.  This was done to reduce the wearing on the face, but at the same time, it looks very nice at address, very confidence inspiring.

Love the look of these...I got fitted into 410s last year and just didnt like the look of the 700s so didnt consider them but would have given these a look. I'm a fan of the black clubs, I have Glide 2.0 Stealths and love the color on those.

That sounds good.  My friend, a few years back, bought black irons and they looked amazing when he first got them.  About two months later he hated looking down at them because he could see all the wear marks.  It made the clubs look old before their time.  So this sounds promising.

I’m very pleased to see the light shaft option. Smart move by Ping IMO.

These would be in my wheel house were I in the market for new irons.

When the Demo sets hit the Golf Shops I’m going to try and get a LH G710 and put it up against the G410.
The Golf Shop has been great to me and I’m sure they’ll give me the Demo time and LM time.
After “Bird Season” of course

8 iron seemed to show more wear than I would like with the fareway bunker test.
Looked larger than the G410 but could be just impression from camera angle.

Yea, I'm thinking that's not camera angle but rather the prevailing issue with black chrome, PVD, etc. coatings.  They simply show wear quickly.  For those who suffer squeakycleancub-itis like me, that's a non starter.  I must admit though that the dark color is dang good looking right out of the box.

I love the “black look” but not sure how I’d like them after 6 months.
According to SWMBO I can be a bit anal. Like I clean my cart after every time I play.

They look really nice. 

But when I see Ping, I think of the late Mr. Solheim.

Then I think of Colonel Sanders.

Then I get hungry and distracted from my game.

And I clean my clubs after every round or practice session.  Dirt = drag.  Drag = reduced CHS (something I can ill afford to give up) 😀

What was interesting to me is this guy went +1 over like 6 holes with them.  I still say I can play the par 5s with a 7 iron and a putter better than with all clubs in the bag.

Agree with you. After my shoulder surgery I eased back into golf never hitting anything over a 6 iron. I played well and was happy with bogey golf and I parred more than my share of holes.
Actually played better then than I am now.
