Ping G410 Vs. Ping G700 Irons Comparison Overview
Are you interested in picking up a set of Ping irons? We don’t blame you. We love Ping irons because their durable and often have premium features that will help you improve your game – that is, if you know what you are looking for.
The cold fact is that a lot of players make the mistake of buying clubs that would have no benefit for them. While we know most Ping clubs to be high quality, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to be discerning when making your selection. Which Ping irons would be best for you? Let’s take a look.
Ping G410 Irons Overview
The Ping G410 irons were built to look like player’s performance irons; but their other features belie the compact shaping.
At address, you may not like the way the Ping G410 irons look – especially if you’re a high handicapper. They have a relatively short blade length and not very much offset. However, there are weights in the toe and in the hosel of these irons.
This extreme perimeter weighting increases forgiveness by preserving ball speed away from the sweet spot. And even though you can’t see it, there is a cavity just behind the face to allow it to flex more.
While you will have to be moderately accurate to pure the ball with these irons, if you are, you stand to gain 10-15 yards in distance!
Ping G700 Irons Overview
One of the first things that we noticed about the Ping G700 irons is that they were yielding really nice carry distances.
This was especially true of the 7 and 5 iron. While for the most part, the lofts of the Ping G700 irons are slightly weaker than the G410 irons, carry distances were markedly better with the G700’s. We attribute this to the chunkier soles that the G700 irons have.
Launch was exceptionally easy and the hydropearl finish made turf interaction very smooth. In terms of distance, the Ping G700 irons have a fully hollow body design so we were getting better distance with these irons. They are also more naturally forgiving due to the blade length and head size.
If you are looking for irons that will help with distance and forgiveness, check out the Ping G700’s. If you are a mid handicapper looking for a bit more workability, we would recommend the Ping G410 irons.

Ping G410 – First Impressions
The first thing you are going to notice about the G410 irons is that they are much more attractive looking than the G410’s
The tingsten weighting in the club head and hosel have lowered the COG of the irons and survived to the G425’s as well.
The clubs are less offset and slight smaller headed than the G410’s and the undercut top line offers good turf interaction to turn the heads of the better players.
The clubs also introduced variable face thickness and a flexible hinge for forgiveness on off center hits.
The clubs offer forgiveness, distance and consistency to high and mid handicap players.
An ode to these clubs is that the G425’s are not that much better at all.
Ping G700 First Impressions
The Ping G700 first struck us with their good looks.
The hydropearl plating of these irons looks really nice both in the bag and at address. They also look really good and confidence-inspiring behind the ball. We also noticed pretty quickly that these irons gave great apex height and optimal descent angles for most lies.
In our time testing these irons, we really couldn’t determine a chink in their armor. The only thing we can say is that the gapping may be a problem for some players if you use this entire set to replace your current irons. Turf interaction is a bit chunky too.
Also, workability isn’t the best but that’s only to be expected of irons built for high handicap players.

Who Are the Ping G700 Irons for?
The Ping G700 irons would be a great choice for the discerning high handicapper. What we mean is that they offer more than just distance and forgiveness. They work moderately well around the pin as well.
Also, if you are having trouble getting the ball airborne, these irons would work great for you. The launch and carry distances are definitely something to get excited about and will surely be a boon to the game of any beginner.
The G Family
There are plenty of Ping G series irons to choose from but besides the G700’s the G400’s and G425’s stand out. They both have multi-material construction so like the Ping G700 irons, they have a metal-wood flexing dynamic.
The G400 irons look the most like the Ping G700’s at address – they have similar head sizes and offset. However, the Ping G700 irons are the only ones of these three lines to feature maraging steel faces.
