PING G700 Iron Review
REVIEW: PING G700 Irons
PING have launched their new G700 Iron for 2018. The new iron has a hollow construction that has been designed for additional ball speed, but just how does the G700 perform? I recently headed out onto the range and the golf course to find out.
Check out the video below for my full PING G700 review:
About the PING G700
The hollow-body construction of the 17-4 stainless steel head allows for an internal geometry design that positions weight away from the face, creating a frame for metal-wood-like flexing and high COR to greatly increase ball speed and produce launch results that will amaze golfers.
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 face material to deliver more flexing for faster ball speeds that launch shots farther and higher.

Yet again PING have created a really good offering on the PING G700. They certainly look great in the bag and they do back up those looks with some great performance, low spinning, but not losing height means that thay are long, very long!
Thehollow construction means that they come with ahefty price tag and some will be unsure of the sound, always a concern when using hollow cavity irons, but I found that I quite liked the sound.
The top line inspired confidence and as with every set of game improvement PING irons there was plenty of offset and plenty of forgiveness.
If you can stomach that price tag, you will putting a great set of irons into play. For better players the long irons may prove attractive as a utility iron. All in all another great offering for PING.
