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.
