I tried the 790's when I got fitted for my 410's. They are a very nice iron and I'm sure I could have been happy with that choice also. The reason I picked the Pings is my numbers were more consistent with them than the 790's. Feel was softer with the TM's but dispersion was better with the 410's. Lots of fans of the P790's here so I doubt you could go wrong either way. I'm not the biggest Taylormade fan so that played into it also.
Former g25 player here. I went with p790 and the modus 105 shafts were a poor fit for me. I simply could not feel the club at all. I moved them and wound up with g410’s. Although I hadn’t sold my g25’s yet, I’ve not hit them since I put g410 in the bag.
i have zero doubt that the p790 would have worked with a better fit. That stated, very happy with g410’s.
G410 now discounted 10% by Ping.
Well I had my fitting and I hit the g410 further than the p790 and straighter. So add that to the p790 being £150 more and it was an easy choice. 4-uw on their way to me for next weekend. Was shocked how easy to hit they were with a much nicer appearance. Third set of pings running!
Loving this price drop by Ping. Last year I played G410 and HMP's. Definitely want to commit to one set by Jan 1, so I can focus on my game and get comfortable. I certainly need to change the shafts in my G410. Alta is just too light weight for me and I swing more consistently with the extra heft of steel.
I'm murdering these things . Have a pretty reliable LM I use and I had an 8 iron read as 184 carry 200 total LOL. I know they are strong lofted but hot ****.
They sound/ feel pretty meh as I've mentioned earlier, especially coming from forged clubs. But they are just really easy to hit.
Anybody with slower swings tried the G410 4 iron?
I’m carrying the 7 iron 165 and it’s 2 degrees C here (I’m not a long hitter compared to many on here). They’re so forgiving too - a bad hit with the g410 7 carried as far as a good hit with my g25 7 iron. They look fantastic too which is a bonus.
Anyone thinking of changing from the awesome g25s try these. Last year I didn’t hit the g400 any further or straighter but these clubs are fantastic. The sound wasn’t as bad as reviews make out either.
I hit the Apex, P790, and i500...I went with the i500 as I was pleased with the performance and feel. I also loved the looks, which gave me more confidence.
And what’s the point in the G410 thread?
What's with the price drop on these? It's not time for an update, is it?
Maybe Ping is just trying to stay competitive price wise??
G410s were already one of the least expensive irons on the market here!
Are you still enjoying yours, Jeff?
Yeah for sure. Were in the early doldrums of winter here though. Been hitting them in the dome though, like them a lot
How easy is the 4 iron to hit compared to a hybrid Jeff?
Easy to hit but a hybrid is still a lot easier to elevate with a comparable shaft. Not that the G's are low launching they just aren't hybrids
Yep, same here. Put the 4 iron in the closet and use the 410 4 hybrid. With a nice easy swing I can hit 210 and if I want to lean on it 220-230. Far more consistent and accurate than the 4 iron.
Are there any single digit guys playing a set of these or comboing them in the long irons? I'm currently in the s55's and would be interested in switching into something more forgiving, but I'm concerned these may be too hot, especially with the lower lofts. I wish they offered a retro loft option in these.
Read Jeff's posts. He's a low single and has tons of game. Great, informative posts also.
MTLJeff, in this thread and other G410 threads.
for all the G410 users out there, how do you manage the 5 degree loft gap between irons? Wouldn't that mean more "feel" shots than before?
