Ping’s Longest, Highest-Flying Irons Yet: The G700 Irons
In the G700 iron, Ping engineers put a high priority on creating an iron that offers power and forgiveness, leveraging the advantages of a hollow-body design and a thin, maraging steel face. This produced Ping’s longest, highest-flying iron to date.
The hollow-body construction of the 17-4 stainless steel head with a HydroPearl finish allows for an internal geometry that positions weight away from the face. It creates a frame for metalwood-like flexing and high COR to increase ball speed and produce launch results designed to amaze golfers.
“The desire for golfers to hit their irons farther continues to grow,” said John K. Solheim, Ping President. “We want to provide options that greatly increase distance without sacrificing other performance attributes, such as consistency, forgiveness and feel. With the G700 iron, we’ve been able to accomplish all of that in a very appealing design with a sound that screams distance from the moment golfers hit it.”
Maraging steel, which is also used in the G400 fairway woods, hybrids and crossovers, is one of the strongest alloys in the world and is commonly employed in the aerospace industry, where strength and flexibility are necessities. Those properties make it an ideal material to deliver more flexing in the face to deliver faster ball speeds that launch shots farther and higher.
“We’re seeing significant ball speed increases in the G700 while maintaining the consistency and control golfers need to improve their iron play,” said Solheim. “It also has a great overall look, especially at address, and a premium finish. When golfers hit it, they’ll experience a sensation and sound that’s unlike any they’ve ever felt or heard.”
