    I was able to get in 9 holes yesterday, and a small bucket of range balls this afternoon.
    Regarding my new G700 set, I can say it is definitely a "distance iron". The ball flight is different from any iron I've ever played, specifically the ball seems to float through the air rather than spin.
    These clubs are definitely fun to strike shots with, including the powerful impact sound which is similar to the impact sound of a hybrid club. Whether I keep the set or not is going to depend on if my approach shots are able to hold the greens reasonably well.

      After more range time and another round of golf I've decided to use TGW's "playability guarantee" program and return this set. Once the store credit arrives I will likely order another set of G700's, this time with a lighter weight shaft, probably the Project X LZ. The set I'm returning had DG R300. This 127 gram shaft combined with MCC Plus 4 mid size grips made the dead weight of the clubs too heavy for me.
      Hopefully losing 12 grams of shaft weight will make enough of a dead weight difference so that the G700's don't swing so heavy. It will take a week to 10 days to receive my credit from TGW, and in the meantime I'll ponder about iron sets.

        Had a great round yesterday with the 700ís. Shot 76 - 41/35 (even par on the back) which is really low for me.

        I didnít hit every green but my approaches were just off leaving me with good looks for chips. Put several chips within tap in distance for par saves.

        The biggest difference I see with these over my former irons is I donít ever get the big sweeping hook that misses 10-30 yds left. And even though I hit a draw mostly, if I do come over the top my shot actually fades back a little and still ends up around my target. My only gripe is the 6i still doesnít launch as high as Iíd like it but that is me and my swing. My buddy who is a high ball hitter was launching it with ease yesterday.

          I play the G700's with the Alta CB Shaft SR. I like them a lot - great high flight. I wanted something that I could get to stop on the hard greens at my FL home course and these came closer to any others. I have a 4 power spec, reg 4 down to SW.

          I have also ordered a set of the i500s. I have hit them in the GolfTown bay and didn't really see any downside to them and they look stunning. I seem to have a natural draw and feel the offset of the G700s wasn't needed. It will be an interesting comparison when the i500s arrive in about a week and a half. I am not really sure I have the game for them but I hope so.

          I also use the Smartsole 3.0 sand wedge and have the chipper, but, like a previous poster, could not control the run out. I can chip just as well using my G700s so the chipper is in the closet.

            Congrats on shooting 76. What shaft is in your G700's?

              I may try to demo a G700 with Alta shaft. For higher trajectory that one is probably the ideal shaft.
              Regarding chipping, I think the elongated shape head shape and wide sole of the G700 makes it an ideal model for chipping.

                Nippon NS Pro Modus 3 105 R flex.

                When I did my fitting I tried the AWT2.0, the Alta graphite, the Project X and the Modus and the Modus won out. More spin, launch and distance (about 5 yds more carry).

                  I have the G700s/Alta CB SR as well, and am interested in how well you like the i500s. Thank you.

                    I am seriously considering replacing my Ping GMax irons with the G700s. Has anyone gamed (or hit) both that might have a comparison? I know the G700 is advertised as being the GMax replacement. Thanks.

                      I think all of the Ping G series irons are more or less the same, including large head sizes, wide soles etc....
                      So, the differentiating factor is mostly the shafts.What shaft model-flex is in your current set of GMax irons ?
                      If you are interested in playing a shaft different from your GMax set, then I suggest selecting a shaft and ordering a set of G700's with that shaft.

                        I've had the GMax irons and am now playing the G700s. For me, there's no comparison. The G700s go higher and longer and are much easier to hit.

                        My only knock against the G700s is the hydropearl finish. I was used to the durable finishes of past PING irons.

                          Thanks! The finish seems to be a common complaint on the G700. Still in serious ponder mode.

                              I use the PING Alta CB SR graphite shafts in the G700s. In the GMax, I had the PING stock graphite shafts in regular flex.

                                I had a set of G700 irons for a cup of coffee and returned them (wrong shaft and grip). Now I am ordering a second set of G700 irons.
                                Anyway, in the brief time I had the G700's it was obvious that the finish would scratch if one looked at a club the wrong way. But I think that before long the whole head looks scratched , scuffed, and that's fine.
                                Actually, I don't think any of the satin finishes, from any manufacturer, hold up worth a darn.
                                The one and only "bullet proof iron finish" was Ping's original tumble-no-finish from the 1970's, but Ping stopped using that more than 20 years ago.
                                If you like the G700 irons I would not let the finish stop you from buying them.
