Ping G710 Vs Titleist T400 Irons Review & Comparison 2021

Both the Titleist T400 and Ping G710 irons are billed as clubs that are highly forgiving. They also boast high launch and considerable distance.

However, they go about these perks in different ways. Indeed, both of these sets are forgiving but which ones performed better overall?

We tested the Titleist T400 and the Ping G710 irons side by side and recorded our assessment in the following review.

Titleist T400 Irons Overview

The Titleist T400 irons are marketed towards players with moderate swing speeds and mid handicappers looking to break into low the handicap region.

Right off the bat, the longer irons are done away with in the Titleist T400 set. The set starts with a 5 iron set to 20 degrees.

This didn’t really provide the launch that Titleist promised with these irons. It will be especially difficult for beginners with moderate swing speeds to get good apex height.

However, the Titleist T400 irons make up for this shortcoming in terms of forgiveness.

The soles of these irons are contoured especially to smooth out turf interaction. Indeed, they do glide through rough turf like a dream.

The Titleist T400 irons also have L-shaped faces. This is really beneficial for mid to high handicappers because the bottom essentially wraps into the sole, increasing accuracy and distance on low-shot hits.

Ping G710 Irons Overview

The Ping G710 irons sport a muscle back design even though the main design goal for these clubs seems to have been forgiveness.

We love the fact that Ping decided to pack a bunch of forgiveness features into muscle back irons.

The black hydropearl finish even creates an optical illusion that makes the blade seem shorter. In other words: these look like player’s irons even though they really aren’t.

The faces of these irons are made from miraging steel and the bodies are made from 17-4 stainless steel.

This creates an interesting dynamic that gives these irons comparable distance to woods.

The perimeter weighting also provides more of the proverbial “oomph” around the perimeter of the face.

At the end of the day, the Ping G710 irons play long and are forgiving. They would be great for any mid to high handicap player.

Distance was almost identical between these 2 iron sets. However, the Ping G710’s were easier to launch and provided just a bit more forgiveness than the Titleist T400’s.

Ping G710 First Impressions

The Ping G710 look impressive right out of the packaging and they continue to impress once you get them on the course.

The first thing you will notice about the Ping G710 irons is the sleek, black hydropearl finish. They also feel pretty substantial in the hand. You may also notice the notched hosel which helps create more discretionary weight to be placed for optimal distance.

The muscle-back design of these irons adds to the good looks and overall performance. This design also makes the Ping G710 irons extremely shapable while at the same time providing valuable feedback on mis-hits.

The head is also slightly larger than the precious G700 irons which may be a benefit for higher handicap players. The Ping G710 irons also feature variable face thickness so you get more distance on dead-center strikes and more forgiveness on shots around the crown and sole.

Combining high-performance maraging steel with the black hydropearl finish make these irons highly desirable for their looks and performance.

Titleist T400- First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the T400’s is how chunky the heads of the clubs are.

At address you can tell that they are going to be long and forgiving, they almost look like a hybrid they are so chunky.

Added to that, they have strong lofts that ensure distance as well as forgiving are high on the list of benefits offered by the clubs.

The clubs are progressively sized so as you get to the shorter irons, they are less chunky and more workable.

The split sole system ensures a quality turf interaction and high launching shots while the ball seems to spring off the ultra thin, forged steel face which is also L shaped to ensure higher shots off the lower part of the face.

The clubs are offset so if you do tend to slice the ball they will also be a good fit.

100g’s of Tungsten weighting expands the perimeter of the sweet spot and as you  approach the ball it is obvious that they clubs are long and consistent.

Overall first impressions, this is an excellent set for anyone who struggles to hit their irons consistently or any beginners looking for more distance from their irons.

They provide a bit more in terms of distance and forgiveness than they do accuracy and scoring.
