It’s all just smoke and mirrors now. U wedge is now the old pitching wedge loft, The old U wedge loft is now a 50 wedge. Stupid re numbering of clubs. The new Ping stuff makes me like there old stuff even more.

I was so bummed to see this released. The 710 was a winner. With lessons learned from other hollow bodied they should have stayed with that. From Karsten, GMax, G700, G710 to this is a step backwards. The Gmax was height of forgiveness and G710 was a great blend of SGI attributes hidden by shaping and color. They should've evolved the 710 instead of this. Just look at T350, ZX4 MKII, 0311XP and see how hollow bodied hot rods can have sound tamed down. I was waiting for these and I just saved enough to buy a new rimfire rifle.

As good as the G series family has been over the years, I always end up getting rid of mine because of the wide soles.  I get the benefits, but I play on mostly public courses where unfilled divots and uneven surfaces (depressions/holes) are not uncommon as well as uneven rough.  In those situations, it is impossible to get down to the ball with such a wide sole which takes away the advantages.

Guess I don’t get the difference between this and the G430. 

 

Very much agree with this. What is the differentiation between the G430 and The 730?

Now that the Blueprint S is here and caters to the Tour audience, I wish the i2XX would go back to being more of the general purpose iron like the i210.  The i5XX for PD, G4XX for GI, then G7XX for SGI.

I’m confused. Isn’t their current lineup just that ?

 

blueprint T - Tour / Uber small profile 

blueprint S - Tour/ player - small profile but not as bladey as the T 

i230 - wide audience iron from pros to low to say 12 ish cap iron 

i530 - players distance 

g430 - GI

g730 - most help. Game enjoyment iron 

What am I missing ???

 

Nothing. I think Ping's lineup perfectly encapsulates every range of player now.  Super game improvement, game improvement, player's distance, what I would call a modern cavity (some sort of mutimaterial tech with slightly stronger than traditional lofts --- i.e. i230), a tour cavity back (small sole, offset, and topline, traditional lofts), and a flat blade.  They have every possible consumer covered now.

With the i230, they moved much more towards a Tour player profile especially in the longer irons.
