A game-improvement iron to give moderate swing speed golfers added distance replacing the G700.
A high strength maraging steel face provides a higher launch with lower spin for more distance. The hollow head has five percent higher MOI (resistance to twisting) than the preceding G700 with the help of internal tungsten weights in hosel and toe.
“Forgiveness continues to be at the top of our list when it comes to iron design,” Ping president John 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.”
He added in the announcement, ““The G710 iron is our longest, most forgiving iron to date. It’s engineered for golfers who want to maximize both distance and forgiveness. In designing it, we also advanced other important attributes such as consistency, sound and feel without sacrificing performance.”
