THIS IS A PRESS RELEASE

PING introduces G710 distance iron with Arccos Caddie Smart Grips

PHOENIX (January 20, 2020):
In the new G710 irons, PING engineers deliver golfers more distance and forgiveness in a sleek, dark finish, PING President John K. Solheim announced today.
The new irons are available for custom fitting and pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today.

“The G710 iron is our longest, most forgiving iron to date. It’s engineered for golfers who want to maximize both distance and forgiveness,” Solheim said. “In designing it, we also advanced other important attributes such as consistency, sound and feel without sacrificing performance. The hydropearl stealth chrome finish gives it a very sleek and attractive look. It’s a beautiful, high-performance design that will have broad appeal for golfers who want to hit the ball longer and straighter.

Solheim also announced the new G710 irons come standard with Arccos Caddie Smart Grips and a free trial of the Arccos Caddie app. “I personally started using Arccos more than a year ago and have seen significant improvement across my entire game,” he said. “It helps me during a round with club selection, and I really enjoy analyzing all the data after the round to uncover areas to help me play better. The Arccos Caddie app is a tremendous shot-tracking tool to help golfers lower their scores and have more fun on the course.”



Precision Machined, Maraging Steel Face
One of the strongest aerospace-grade alloys in the world, maraging steel provides strength and flexibility for launching shots higher and farther. High durability coupled with a machined variable-thickness face make an ideal pairing for distance.
“We’ve continued to employ maraging steel in several products where maximizing face flexing is a performance priority,” said Solheim. “Our engineers have optimized the bending of the G710 face to increase ball speeds for more distance and higher trajectories, producing shots that land softer and hold the green. It’s a distance iron that delivers consistent distance, a very rare combination for an iron of this type.”

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.

“Forgiveness continues to be at the top of our list when it comes to iron design,” Solheim said. “In a hollow-body design, our goal is to balance a variety of attributes to help golfers hit the ball significantly farther while hitting more greens. The G710 iron’s extremely high MOI is a result of strategically positioning weight on the toe and inside the hosel to make it our most forgiving iron. We’ve also greatly enhanced the feel and sound through extensive modal analysis, which helped us eliminate certain undesirable frequencies.”

Hydropearl Stealth Chrome Finish

A hydropearl chrome finish with black PVD coating provides 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
The proprietary PING shaft is a no-upcharge option in the G710 iron and 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.

They look good and I'll give them a try being a Ping Homer, but I'm sure disappointed that no i500 or i210 was released.

Generally 18 month cycle with Ping and those were July 2018, I have to imagine we will see them sometime in the near future.

Love that black finish. Wonder if we'll see that creep into some other releases for them.

Been waiting on these before committing to the Cobra T-Rails fully.
when I first saw the pics of these Friday I was a bit underwhelmed but they are growing on me.

Should be able to hit them today against the T-Rail and T400 Titleist.

For anyone here that has seen these, how does it compare in size and look to the Crossover?

The G710 is very similar in size to the G700 iron. although the black makes it appear a little less chunky.
The older G and G400 Crossovers were definitely larger in size than this iron. The newer Crossover is smaller than the older Crossovers and honestly I don't have much experience with it so I can't compare the size there.

Dark finish. I expect Ping will sell a gazillion of these.

I was hoping that for the G710 model Ping would offer a LW for sure, and maybe a 3-iron as well. Didn't happen.
