    Nice looking sticks. There was a definite buzz in the PING booth. They hit great on the sim. Still debating if I want to put them in play though.

    Looking forward to the upcoming reviews, especially G410 feel and forgiveness comparisons to earlier G (I play G25), i500, and i210! I have an itch for the i210, but the last time I was fit the G series won out over the i series, with the deciding factor being dispersion. Spring demo season is always fun.




    I’m also playing G25s and in the same boat looking at the same three clubs. The G25s are just so good.

    I play the G25's as well. I think the biggest issue is that the 410's shafts are longer than the G25's. I don't need longer shafts so I'm hard pressed to get new irons just to have them cut down to the specs of the 25's.



    Plus, I have to say it, I think the black/red color combination looks cheap.

    Mine came in today as well. Looks playable maybe Sunday afternoon and for sure Monday. They do hit plastic balls really nice around the house. 31 for a high here today.

    What I'm most curious about is to hear about the 4, 5 and 6 irons in terms of height achieved with those lofts. If they do indeed launch noticeably higher than other clubs with same loft then I will consider a 4 iron in the bag. But I'm thinking with those lofts I may just need 5-PW or thru UW.

    There is no issue getting a G400 4 iron into the air, so I doubt there will be with the G410.



    I went power spec on my 4 at 19*, gives me about 15-20 yards on my normal spec 5. Bought it primarily as a driving iron, but it’s easy to hit from the deck, even on a poor lie. The latest G irons go very high indeed as a set.



    I’m debating getting some G410s too, but I don’t really need them, my G400s are going dreamily at the moment. But I do fancy some!

    Another G25 guy here. Check sig.



    I stopped by Dicks on the way home from work just to take a look. I don’t think my local shop has them in yet as they don’t have the buying power of Dicks.



    I’ve got more than enough credit built up and the 410 are on the list. I’m thinking 5-P and going another route with the gap wedge but that’s not certain yet.

    My dilemma. I have G400 6-Uw and love them. They stay in Florida at our fall/winter home. My bag in VA is sitting empty and we'll be back there late April for the spring/summer. I have $700 in shop credit in VA. Do I buy another set of G400s or get the G410s? My only hesitation is the reduced offset of the G410.....I like offset.

    I hit the 7 iron G410 vs my G700 7 iron yesterday, same shaft flex and all. The G410 was 2 ft higher on average and the spin rate was higher by an average of about 700 but the distances were exactly the same. Not enough for a normal person to make the switch, unless I find someone to make a decent offer on my barely used 700's, image/blink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blink:' /> but still tempting on looks alone.

    Have played almost every G series from G2 to 30 at some point in the last 20 years. Switched to Callaway awhile back mostly out of boredom. These may bring me back to Ping. They look fantastic and less offset is a big plus for me.

    I like offset too. I'm thinking about getting the 7 iron - SW with the PowerSpec loft. Not that I want to hit the ball farther or lower, but I'd just like some of the offset reduction added back.



    I'm interested in the longer irons here but I can't imagine they are any easier to hit than the G400s. In truth, with the loft creep over the years (no change this model but in general) the 4 iron, 5 iron, and even 6 iron are probably not well suited to most of the buyers of these (GI/SGI) clubs. I carry the G25 8 iron (36*) 150 yards, which is by no means big, but it is probably at least average among the users of this type of iron (9 index if that matters). In the G25s, the 5 iron (26*) is the questionable club for me. I can hit it fine on the fairway/tee box, but out of the rough or any sidehill/downhill lie or with pressure and the success rate really starts to drop. Hence, I am even hesitant about the 6 iron in the G410s (I've played the 6 iron in the G400s with the same mixed success as the G25 5 iron).

    Made the move to Florida this winter with my 700s, coming from my beloved 718/AP1s I’m just not loving the 700s like I hoped I would. I’m an old G iron dog so these have my complete attention. Is it because they are new? Probably. Or maybe “Once a G iron guy always a G iron guy”? I’ll probably follow this thread long enough to talk myself into a set before too long:-)

    What about sound and feel?
  • JrhemmingJrhemming Members Posts: 192 ✭✭✭
    I hit the 410 next to the 400 this last week and I thought the sound and feel of the 410 was way better. The 400 was louder clickier and not as soft feeling. I think the back of the 410 looks so much better too the 400 looked cheap to me.

    Yeah, I’m waiting to see if another G25 user switches before I consider it. Tried the G400 and still preferred my 25s so not expecting much!

    Had Iblades for about 3 weeks now.....very happy with my decision....especially now that I've found a shaft that fits properly

    Feel was identical but the 700's do have that "ting" sound when you hit them just right which does not bother me at all.

    Just got to ask one of the posters in this thread that mention looks of the 410 irons if they don’t see the cavity as being very busy and plastic looking? I have hit them and having owned 40 sets over the years of all makes and types including Pings from s56 to g30s I really liked the profile change and “build” of club but looks.? Probably grow on me but this crowd seems adverse to any colors in the cavity other than the bare metal which I understand.

    I suppose they way clubs "look" is a subjective observation. To me they look great and personally like them over my 700's and, there are various other irons on the market that I prefer the looks of as well. My observation was only that to my eye, the 410's are preferable vs the 700 but performance wise they were identical for my skill level.

    Maybe I'm missing something but if your ball striking is good enough that you only have a 2 foot difference between G700's and the 410's, why are you playing G series irons? You should be bagging blades up to a 2 iron!

    I saw the 700's once in person and was a lil overwhelmed how large they looked plus the offset was quite a lot as well. I have yet to see the 410's in person but from what I can tell from the in hand pics the offset is not over the top (which is a plus imho)



    Bama's pic of the 410's in the bag look fantastic as far as the finish is concerned so that's a plus as well.



    Does anyone know if the 410 head length gets shorter as you move from the long irons to the short irons? Like the i25 was.

    Those wedges definitely look less clunky than the G400. I've only seen the 7 iron so far. Looking forward to see the entire set.
