Today PING announced the release of its new G710 irons, designed to deliver more distance and forgiveness, in a sleek, dark finish.
PING claims that the G710 is in fact their longest, most forgiving design to date. The finish is describes as "hydropearl stealth" and it really stands out.
The new G710 irons come standard with Arccos Caddie Smart Grips, and also with a free trial of the Arccos Caddie app. The shot-tracking app collects data to help golfers analyze their games and better manage their games on course.
The maraging steel that makes up the club head is highly durable, and provides the strength and flexibility (with a variable thickness face) to hit higher, longer shots.
"It’s a distance iron that delivers consistent distance, a very rare combination for an iron of this type,” said PING president John Solheim.
5% Higher MOI
High-density tungsten toe and heel weights optimally positioned in the 17-4 stainless body increase the MOI by 5% compared to the G700, producing exceptional forgiveness for more distance and accuracy, especially for mid-to-high handicaps and slower swing speeds.
Hydropearl Stealth Chrome Finish
A hydropearl chrome finish with black PVD coating provides something called "hydrophobicity" to repel water and improve performance through the turf and in wet conditions. The two-stage coating process ensures durability and the darker finish creates the perception of a smaller, more compact head.
Alta Distanza Black 40 Graphite Shaft
This shaft offers the lightest weight and max trajectory height available in a PING iron shaft. A more active tip in the 43-gram shaft delivers higher trajectories and best matches golfers with slower swing speeds.
Arccos Caddie Smart Grip & Arccos Caddie app
The Arccos Caddie Golf Pride 360 Tour Velvet Smart Grip is standard on every G710 iron in one of three sizes (Aqua -1/64″, White Std., Gold +1/32″). Each iron is custom built with an embedded sensor in the grip to automatically record and analyze every shot taken during a round when paired with the Arccos Caddie app.
Golfers receive a 90-day free trial of the app (then $99.99 annual subscription) and eight additional screw-in sensors at no charge after the purchase of six or more G710 irons. Fulfillment of the additional free sensors comes directly from PING and requires users to first download the Arccos Caddie app.
