There won't be any "foam" in the heads. Kind of like how the Crossovers aren't foam filled.

Finish is like the G400 irons.

Suppose to be a direct replacement for the GMax irons but look better at address than the G400's.

That's what I heard Denny, super game improvement.  More along the lines of the GMax irons not the G.

Just out of curiosity, how (maybe "why?") does Ping work their numbering system for the G series? From what I see, they kind of went from G20 --> G25 --> G30 --> G --> G400 --> G700.  With a branch to Gmax after the G30 that comes together again now in G700?

I'm not in the market for any of them, but just curious about the marketing, I guess.  It makes it just a little harder to see how much older (or recent) any of them are wrt the others, other than the general trend of higher numbers being later (with exceptions of G and Gmax).

But maybe that's the point: Get the customer in the most appropriate current club without emphasis on the number/year.

Any info on pricing?

I think MSRP will be $160 a club.

I think they just wanted to switch it up. i200 or G400 sounds better than i35 or G35.

Just a 7-iron off a matt. Pretty much what you would expect: high launch, easy to hit, good ball speed, sounds a little hollow. They look very similar to the G400's at address. They are basically G400's on steroids.

I hit these at Carl's during their demo days.   As @mvmac has stated, they are easy to hit and have a high launch angle.   I liked them better than the G400

I have the i200’s which I love...but of course ya know...new and shiny and I love Ping. I haven’t hit the 400’s...you guys like the feel of the 700 as much as the i200?

i200 feel is much better. 700's are kinda like hitting a hybrid. 

If you are looking for something in the i200 category, new and shiny....wait until August/September. G700 meets i200.

Awesome. I hadn’t heard that. Will do.

I hit them at our demo day last weekend.  Stupid easy to hit.  I liked it with the AWT shaft.  Felt ok, not as nice as my I e-1 irons but something I would have no problem with especially when I saw the results.  Ball flight did not seem too high...just my tiny draw on everything.

Blade length is long but after a few hits I didn't even notice it at address.  Top line not thick and offset is nicely blended in so you don't notice it either.

A few weeks prior, I hit this same iron off a mat with the DG105 shaft and hated it...high and right.  AWT was working better for me.  I could game these in a heartbeat.  Who needs to work the ball???  G400 max driver I tried hit dead straight bombs one after another.  Drive down the middle and a straight shot to the green.  Doesn't get easier than that.

I hit the Ping G irons (for about a month now), and have come to one conclusion. Ping makes great golf irons. I started with Ping Eye 2's years ago (which looking back was probably the best irons I've ever hit) and have now come full circle to G after Cleveland, Taylor Made and Mizuno. Can't work the ball as much with the G's but they do go where I'm aiming.
