PXG 0211 DC Vs. Ping G710 Irons Comparison Overview
Both the PXG 0211 DC’s and the Ping G710 irons have one very important feature in common: they both have miraging steel faces.
Miraging steel is incredibly strong and thin which helps with distance and short game performance.
That’s not all to these irons though. To get the entire picture, we tested these irons side by side. Take a look at what we found in the following comparison.
Ping G710 Irons Overview
The Ping G710 irons have the most striking look of any Ping irons that we’ve ever tested.
Anyone considering buying these irons will be happy to know that the performance matches the premium looks. The notched hosel helps increase forgiveness by allowing the engineers to place heavier tungsten weights in the heel and toe.
This creates higher MOI so these irons are decently forgiving. The G710’s also feature a black hydropearl finish. The finish actually repels water to increase control when conditions are wet. What we really liked though was the smooth turf interaction.
These babies glide through the rough like it was nothing. The G710’s also offer a surprising amount of workability for irons in the game-improvement category. The compact head size was congenial to the better players in our testing party who were able to work both the long and short G710’s.
PXG 0211 DC Irons Overview
The PXG 0211 DC irons were also designed for high to mid handicappers but have very different features than the G710’s
For one thing, the PXG 0211 DC irons have a soft polymer insert that smooths out feel. For another, the PXG 0211 DC’s have more offset than the G710’s. While the G710’s are more of a traditional muscle back set of irons, the PXG 0211 DC’s have a sort of stepped muscle back.
In terms of workability, it was pretty much a tie between these two irons. The PXG 0211 DC’s also have compact heads which again, was great for the better testers in our party but may not be great for high handicap players.
The PXG 0211 DC’s also have an undercut around the perimeter of the face but overall, the Ping G710’s were more forgiving.
What’s more is that the Ping G710’s played longer too. They were more forgiving, matched in the PXG 0211 DC’s in terms of workability and had better turf interaction. We can confidently say that the Ping G710’s are the superior irons.
