Ping G400 Vs. Ping G410 Irons Comparison Overview
Ping is a company that makes clubs for players of all skill levels. While this is mostly a good thing, it can also make it a bit difficult to choose the right Ping iron set for your specific needs. If you have been looking at Ping irons for your next set, you are in luck.
As part of our tireless effort to fit players with the perfect golf clubs, we went out and tested 2 Ping iron sets: the Ping G400’s and the Ping G410’s.
Ping G400 Irons Overview
The Ping G400’s have a sweet feel and their relatively compact head profile belies all the game-improvement features they have.
First up is the 17-4 grade stainless steel faces of these irons. This material is incredibly strong but also, very thin. This is an equation for great ball speed and distance. The Ping G400’s were also exceptional at producing high launch.
Even our high handicap testers had very little issue with getting the ball up in the air – even from the rough. This is surely a set of game-improvement irons; but tread lightly as they do not have a lot of distance between heel and toe like other game-improvement irons do.
You will have to be moderately accurate with these irons but if you are, they will help you lose fewer clubs to score.
Ping G410 Irons Overview
The Ping G410 irons are definitely better for mid-handicap players.
One look at address and you’ll see what we mean. The G410’s have even smaller blade lengths than the Ping G400’s and noticeably less offset. However, these irons aren’t without their forgiveness appointments.
They sport extreme perimeter weighting in the form of weights in the hosel and the toe screw. This improves lateral forgiveness and lends excellent balance to these irons on the downswing. You definitely won’t lose orientation of the heads on your backswing either.
The wedges are where this set really shines though. Even from thin turf, the G410 scoring irons allow for a lot of control. The great launch and effortless distance may be a bit hard to control at first; but with some time and practice you should be able to use these performance aspects to your advantage.
It’s very clear that the Ping G400 irons are a solid choice for high handicappers while the G410 irons are more suitable for mid handicappers.
