Also, do they fill it with magic goo?  Honestly, doing so seems counter to the whole insert face/hollow cavity which purportedly provides a trampoline effect. It would seem almost any filler material would counteract the effect and is more for sound than anything else... but I could be wrong. 

Yeah, I don't think PING uses any filler in any of their irons like some of the others.

correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like there's a tungsten weight, similar to the fixed position one in the G400 series, that is moveable but the tract is a lot smaller than the G410 series. 

Big AL to the rescue.

Well then, perhaps we've stumbled on all/part of the reason they had such a poor showing in the test 😉.  I'm on the hunt for some of this Flubber stuff and, when I find it, plan to remove my toe weight and stuff them full to the brim.

As someone with the unfilled I500s the goo can indeed help on feel, mainly on off center hits. Must have been hitting the ball well at my fitting because I don't notice this until later.

**********WARNING !!!!!    WARNING **********

I own the PING G-700's, the sound is a bit annoying if you don't hit the sweet spot.

So I decided to experiment with urethane foam insulation spray. I removed the screw (with my driver tool)  I stuck the nozzle in (fit perfect!) 

Squeezed the nozzle for about a 1 to 1-1/2 seconds  

Removed the nozzle only to see/feel the foam come back at me and all over my tool chest, golf bag, shoes and shirt, good thing I was wearing my glasses.

I did try about a 1 foot long string of yarn and it seemed to muffle the sound a bit without any swing feel change.

I have very happily kept the G400max in my bag now for 3 years, and it will stay for another few unless the 425Max can dethrone it.

He is in Australia, they get them much sooner. But you are halfway there, so might as well hop a flight and go pick up a few for us.

Big Al’s an Aussie. I guess with 2020 going the way it is and everything in Australia able to kill you, including mother-in-laws, Ping would give them something to look forward to.  From my understanding we are still looking at a new year release.

Love too but Aussie is closed to us and I don't know if they have made it to NZ yet. You could buy them online from GolfBox and get them sent to me to test though....

Everthing I have from PING definitely points to a 2021 US release. 
 

Of course, this is a time, id be thrilled to be proven wrong 😀

I hope they improved the feel with the new release of the 425 irons. It wasn't a terrible feel in the 410's but it wasn't great.

Looks good but I still love my G400 Max. I hit the G410 Plus at a golf show earlier this year and didn’t see a reason the change to something new.

Recently won a set of irons in our TNL raffle. Pro has already called Ping and told me early first quarter, for what that's worth. Really looking forward to gaming these as they seem like an upgrade on my G400s, which are the best irons I've ever played.
