Titleist T400 Vs. Ping G700 Irons Comparison Overview

These days, it seems like everyone is scrambling for hollow body irons. Hollow body irons seem to be hot property these days as some pros have used them to great success in recent seasons. Indeed, even everyday golfers seem to benefit greatly from the forgiveness and distance that these kinds of irons offer.

So we wanted to take a closer look at a couple of iron sets that boast hollow-body design. What are the differences between these irons? Who is each set for? Find out in the following comparison.

Titleist T400 Irons Overview

The Titleist T400 irons sport a hollow body design and an L-shaped face insert.

The face insert was really helping with our low-face shots. We noticed better ball speed and straighter flight with the T400 irons as the face insert essentially wraps around the sole, creating a larger flexing zone.

The T400 irons are also ridiculously strong-lofted. Launch was almost effortless throughout the set which starts with a 21 degree 3 iron and ends with a 42 degree 9 iron! Because of the sharp launch angles, the T400’s also have a steep angle of descent – perfect for landing fast greens.

There is also a ton of tungsten in the mid irons which was a bit perplexing to us as we would expect such extreme weighting in the longer irons.

Ping G700 Irons Overview

 The Ping G700 also have a hollow body head design but feature C300 maraging steel faces.

The Ping G700’s definitely have more of a metal-wood feel to them. Even at address, the wide soles will look better to higher handicap players. They also feature Ping’s hydropearl finish which, along with the chunky soles, helped to smooth out turf interaction and repel moisture in wet conditions.

What we were really impressed with was the workability. Compared to the T400’s it was much easier to draw the ball with the mid irons and get the ball to spin back with the wedges. The Ping G700’s don’t land as steeply as the T400’s; but this didn’t seem to be a hindrance to us thanks to the increased workability.

The Ping G700’s are a great choice for mid to high handicappers looking to land more GIR’s and lower their score. The Titleist T400 irons will help anyone struggling to get the ball airborne. The Ping G700’s definitely have more to offer a wider range of mid/high handicap players, though.

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.

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.
