lol, i play every one of pings iron i my bag. G400 was a solid choice. I felt like id never miss a green. They do feel ever so slightly more hollow, but the easiness of hitting them is great. I200 is essentially a smaller and imo beter feeling. I tend to hook most of irons which is the main reason i dont bag the g400 full set. If you dont hook the ball, go g400. A combo set would look nice as well
I am about to combo set like this: G400 4-6 iron and I200 7-PW power spec lofts.
I am just worried I would have issues with gapping between the 6 and 7 irons, its a 5 degree difference between the 26.5 degree G400 6 iron and 31.5 I200 7 iron.
Can anyone tell me if those 5 degrees will make a mess???
Yes, it will make a mess. You'll have a gap.
If you want to do Power spec, that's fine. Just do the power spec of the i200, and apply that same loft and length to the G400. Thus, the i200 would be "power spec", but the G400 would be "custom". That would be a better gapped iron set in my opinion.
Also note that without any proof whatsoever, you're going to get the same distance from a 5-iron g400 as a 5-iron i200, if the length, shaft, and loft are the same -- within any randomness of shots / human difference. You might get a yard, maybe two. Maybe.
If it was OCD-me, what I'd be asking for is for my i200 7-iron to be 31, not 31.5. Then I'd get my g400 6-iron at 27, and then decide if I want to go 23.5/20, or 23/19. My early preference is 23.5/20 for the 5/4 because IMO 19 is just too low for that iron. I'd also have them cut at 1/2's and not 5/8's like they normally would be.
Another viable option is to go g400 at 6/27 and 5/23(.5), and then hybrid options from there. Getting an iron that low is a conditions-dependent call. If I'm fitting you, and you're talking g400 irons in this configuration, I'm pressing you for a 4-hybrid at 22º and leaving the 5-iron at 23.5, unless you have a driver swing speed over 108-ish.
