At the end of the day, you hit each iron a specific distance.  As long as you have the clubs to fill the gaps, who cares what the numbers are on the bottom of the club. .....

 

It matters because with current lofts players need to carry 5 wedges. 

Add a putter and a driver and you only have 3-4 clubs to cover 80-100 yard gap between driver and 6 or 7 iron.

There's no use to even make a 3-4 iron anymore with these lofts getting stronger every year.  I saw Callaway's new AI smoke iron's A wedge is like a 46 degree

The Rogue X had a 46* A wedge and it came out 6 or 7 years ago. Somewhere between 46* & 48* has been the norm for quite a while.

The G430 is 45* btw.

What’s the benefit of a set like this as opposed to, let’s say the Cleveland Launcher XL Halo irons? The Halo lofts go from  23*(5i) to 49*(DW*) with 7 clubs, the G730’s go from 21.5*(5i) to 45*(UW) so even though you might hit your 730 6 iron further, you need to buy an 8th club (the 2nd UW) to get to 50*.

The only thing I can think of is the 730 5iron eliminates the need for a 4 hybrid?

I've played Mizunos during this time frame, my gap wedge is 48 and I remember when they all used to be around 50.  I guess Callaway may have started the gimmicky lofts if they done it with the Rogue X.  I know Titleist has done it for awhile too with labeling their clubs oddly.

I went to an outdoor Ping fitting event today.  I hit the 430, 530 and 730 irons.  For reference, I’m a 5.9 index and currently play ap1 710s with the stock Nippon 105t steel shaft in regular flex. 
 

I’ll cut to the chase.  The 730s were fantastic.  I noticed no difference in feel or sound as compared to the 430s or 530s.  But the height and distance were clearly different.  Yes, the 7 iron is 28 degrees, but the loft on the 7 for the 430 and 530 is 29, so not much difference there.

 

The one thing I don’t understand is where these fit in the line up in relation to the 430.  I put the 430 and 730 down next to each other and honestly I could not tell much of a difference.  If anything, I though the 730 looked a little slimmer/sleeker but maybe Ping is good at hiding the size?

 

Anyway, I left the fitting a little confused.  I thought the 7-series was designed for high handicap players who need all the help they can get.  These seemed to fit me just fine and worked great.  BTW, swing speed with the 7 is around 75 and I was fit into the stock DG 100 shaft in regular flex.

I was looking at G730 vs JPX923 HL today.  The online reviews for the JPX HL are terrific, one reviewer tested and showed the HL superior to other JPX models at all clubhead speeds.

 

i have a lot of shaft lean and am trying to groove a 3/4 iron swing, easier on my body. Currently playing ping retro lofts to get spin and descent angle up.  
 

The JPX HL are about 70% of the Ping price and have a standard loft scheme (PW is 45* etc).  My ego doesn’t need a 150 yard PW.

 

Anyone else compared these two?
