21.01 Ping G710 jern:
Ping med ny jernmodell
har utviklet mange gode jernkøller opp gjennom årene.
Nå kommer Ping G710
Golfsiden har ikke testet køllene, men her er en beskrivelse. Noe å tenke på når
anledningen byr seg utover i sesongen. Disse køllene er ment å være både
tilgivende og langtslående.
PING introduces G710 distance iron with Arccos Smart
PHOENIX (January 20, 2020): In the new G710 irons, PING engineers deliver
golfers more distance and forgiveness in a sleek, dark finish, PING President
John K. Solheim announced today.
The new irons are available for custom fitting and pre-order at authorised PING
golf shops around the world beginning today.
“The G710 iron is our longest, most forgiving iron to date. It’s engineered for
golfers who want to maximise both distance and forgiveness,” Solheim said. “In
designing it, we also advanced other important attributes such as consistency,
sound and feel, without sacrificing performance. The hydropearl stealth chrome
finish gives it a very sleek and attractive look. It’s a beautiful,
high-performance design that will have broad appeal for golfers who want to hit
the ball longer and straighter.”
Solheim also announced the new G710 irons come standard with Arccos Smart Grips
and a free trial of the Arccos Caddie app. “I personally started using Arccos
more than a year ago and have seen significant improvement across my entire
game,” he said. “It helps me during a round with club selection and I really
enjoy analysing all the data after the round to uncover areas to help me play
better. The Arccos Caddie app is a tremendous shot-tracking tool to help golfers
lower their scores and have more fun on the course.”
Precision Machined, Maraging Steel Face
One of the strongest aerospace-grade alloys in the world, maraging steel
provides strength and flexibility for launching shots higher and further. High
durability coupled with a machined variable-thickness face make an ideal pairing
“We’ve continued to employ maraging steel in several products where maximising
face flexing is a performance priority,” said Solheim. “Our engineers have
optimised the bending of the G710 face to increase ball speeds for more distance
and higher trajectories, producing shots that land softer and hold the green.
It’s a distance iron that delivers consistent distance, a very rare combination
for an iron of this type.”
5% Higher MOI
High-density tungsten toe and heel weights optimally positioned in the 17-4
stainless body increase the MOI by 5% compared to the G700, producing
exceptional forgiveness for more distance and accuracy, especially for
mid-to-high handicaps and slower swing speeds.
“Forgiveness continues to be at the top of our list when it comes to iron
design,” Solheim said. “In a hollow-body design, our goal is to balance a
variety of attributes to help golfers hit the ball significantly further while
hitting more greens. The G710 iron’s extremely high MOI is a result of
strategically positioning weight on the toe and inside the hosel to make it our
most forgiving iron. We’ve also greatly enhanced the feel and sound through
extensive modal analysis, which helped us eliminate certain undesirable
Hydropearl Stealth Chrome Finish
A hydropearl chrome finish with black PVD coating provides hydrophobicity to
repel water and improve performance through the turf and in wet conditions. The
two-stage coating process ensures durability and the darker finish creates the
perception of a smaller, more compact head.
Alta Distanza Black 40 Graphite Shaft
The proprietary PING shaft is a no-upcharge option in the G710 iron and offers
the lightest weight and max trajectory height available in a PING iron shaft. A
more active tip in the 42-gram shaft delivers higher trajectories and best
matches golfers with slower swing speeds.
Arccos Smart Grip & Caddie app
The Arccos Golf Pride 360 Tour Velvet Smart Grip is standard on every G710 iron
in one of three sizes (Aqua -1/64", White Std., Gold +1/32"). Each iron is
custom built with an embedded sensor in the grip to automatically record and
analyse every shot taken during a round when paired with the Arccos Caddie app.
Golfers receive a 90-day free trial of the app and eight additional screw-in
sensors at no charge after the purchase of six or more G710 irons. Fulfillment
of the additional free sensors comes directly from PING and requires users to
first download the Arccos Caddie app.
