Just wanted to share. Always had a soft spot for PING since my days as a junior golfer. My first set of irons at 13 years old back in 1994 was a set of black dot PING Eye 2. I played them or another set of them until I was 30. Never could find the same kind of love out of a set of irons or PING. Since then, I've had a million sets of irons it seems from blades to game improvement. Always suffering for too much offset. Finally found a set of irons which remind me of Eye 2! Enter G410 irons...
Have near perfect looks with minimal offset. Really make game a lot of fun. Yes, lofts are stronger, but wow the forgiveness and height are incredible. I'm getting a ton of stopping power too.
So, good bye Srixon Z785, yes you were **** and felt amazing. For reference, I'm a decent golfer usually shooting upper 70s to low 80s.
I picked up a set of G410 4-PW and some Stealth Gide 2.0 wedges (50ss / 54ss / 58ss). Loving them. Trackman numbers were impressive and they have a very tight dispersion. 170 carry with 7 iron and 200 carry with 4 iron. For most part, they are point and shoot. I shot an easy 82 first time out with them and let me tell you, it was not best day. Missed about 4 makeable putts by inches and was not hitting the ball well.
Looking forward to a near all PING bag, just missing a PING driver at the moment.
Golf is supposed to be fun, after all it is a hobby for us hacks with a day job! So, I guess welcome me into the world of shovels (atlease they are good looking to me) and goodbye to players club. I guess at the end of the day, I want to have a realistic chance at hitting a GIR from 200 yards out.
If you have them, please post your thoughts. To me, PING have knocked it out the park with performance and enough good looks to appease someone who is pretty picky when it comes to looks.
