In the PING G700 game-improvement iron, PING engineers put a high priority on power and forgiveness. By leveraging the advantages of a hollow-body design and a thin, maraging steel face, they have created PING's longest, highest-flying iron to date. All this comes with the added benefits of playability, tighter dispersion and enhanced sound in a slim, aesthetically pleasing shape.
“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.”
The hollow-body construction of the 17-4 stainless steel head allows for an internal geometry design that positions weight away from the face. This creates a frame for metalwood-like flexing and high coefficient of restitution (COR) to greatly increase ball speed and produce launch results that will amaze golfers.
C300 maraging steel, one of the strongest alloys in the world, increases ball speed and distance by launching shots farther and higher and generating twice the face flexing. Low and extreme heel-toe perimeter weighting ensures high inertia and tightens dispersion.
“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.”
With a sole width and offset similar to the G400 iron, plus a clean cavity, hydropearl plating and polished accent, the address view is confidence inspiring. Sole width, bounce and offset allow for better turf interaction to improve ball striking, which contributes to forgiveness and distance control without sacrificing playability and height.
