Ping G430 Vs Ping G730 Irons Comparison Overview

When a new set of irons comes out, we always like to compare them to what has come before them. Out of curiosity and of course we want to know what suits our game better.

That is certainly the case for the new Ping G730’s as they represent a newer iron set than the G430’s from 2023.

The difference in these irons is quite simple. The G430’s are Game Improvement/Players Distance irons and the G730’s are Game Improvement/ Super Game Improvement Irons.

Ping G430 Irons Overview

“The G430’s strenghtened the lofts of the G425’s While simulataneously lowering the Center Of Gravity.”

The result is irons that are easy to hit long while also maintaining the ability to get the ball into the air.

We see the trademark Ping Iron hallmarks too, The tungsten screw in the toe, the hinge flex at the heel and the pur flex cavity in the back.

The irons are also larger than the G425’s offering more confidence at address and forgiveness as well.

The sound and feel has also been improved on the G430’s for an excellent set of irons overall.

Ping G730 Irons Overview

“The Largest, Longest and most forgiving irons that Ping have ever released.”

The increase in size makes these clubs almost like Hybrids at address. Confidence inspiring, long, straight and forgiving.

Again the CG has been lowered and deepened so we can get the balls off the ground with ease.

The lofts are stronger then the G430’s again and that results in a lower ball flight with less spin.

The sound is also loud and powerful. An excellent set of irons for high handicappers from our favourite brand.

The G430’s will suit high handicappers and those with their eyes on becoming high handicappers. They are more workable and accurate but sacrifice a bit of distance and forgiveness. Lower handicap players will prefer more feel, accuracy and workability.

The G730’s are for those new to golf and recreational high handicappers who know their limitations. Also good for senior players looking to squeeze more distance in a forgiving iron shape.

For us, the G430’s suit better btun both irons are equally impressive. The i525’s and i530s are also great options for mid handicap players.

Ping G430 Irons First Impressions

The first thing to notic about the G430’s is the size. These are large game improvement irons with thick soles, built for distance and forgivness.

The shorter hosel stands out too, with the offset of the club. It helps to lower CG and get the ball flying higher.

There’s a bit of color on the back too with the Purflex cavity badge. This dampens vibrations on mishits and it houses 7 striking zones which produce straight and high shots even when you don’t connect flush.

The visible screw in the toe stands out too. There is another weight in the hosel tip and this increases MOI across the face. These irons will fly high and straight even when you don’t connect flush.

The other thing that stands out is the lower lofts, the main reason for the distance. With that being said the CG is lower and there is an extra degree of bounce so you can still the ball in the air easily.

The 3% thinner face ensures a faster ball speed on impact and the Hydropearl 2.0 finish ensures you can game these irons effectively in any weather.

The G430’s are a serious contender overall in the game improvement market in 2023.

Ping G730 First Impressions

“The Irons are long, forgiving and well, quite loud at impact too.”

We see all the hallmarks of the Ping Irons with the deep cavity back, the tungsten weight in the toe and the matching weight in the hosel. We also have the patented Hing towards the heel of the club to add flex to the face.

The Irons look similar to the G430’s except they are bigger and look a little bit more clean cut towards the bottom.

The Pru Flex cavity badge is also present to give a smoother look and feel to the clubs.

When hitting the clubs, they are confidence inspiring. It felt just like hitting a hybrid, in fact, the face was even a little bigger and more inviting.

The problem we encountered was the lower spin rates and the ball running off the back of the green at times.

Who Are the Ping G730 Irons for?

There is no doubt that these irons are catered towards high handicappers, senior players(Correct Shaft) and those who are new to the game.

You are not going to draw the ball around too many Dog Legs with the G730’s but they are great and keeping the ball moving long and straight.

You get what you see with the G730’s, they play how they look, long and straight.

There is no doubt that these are excellent clubs but consider a second hand set if you are new to the game or are a high handicpper for life. There are cheaper options offering similar performance.

Always get your shaft game on point as well.
