How do you like them?  I just tried them the other day and they felt harsher and tinny.  I was expecting a P790 feel.  Maybe it was the shaft Ill have to try it out some more

Nice set up!  Congrats! I opted to get the SW because at 54 degrees it's not quite enough loft for me to get out of a bunker and will use it for full shots.

Just snowed yesterday so I have not tried them yet. Just picked them up this morning.
I had the Ping Gmax irons before I decided to buy these.
Always felt Ping irons always improved when I bought the next version.

They do look awesome in the bag, I'm surprised they have the screw in the SW and UW, are they hollow as well? From the pictures it looks like they are smaller/thinner than the rest of set.

Love the head covers. Can I ask where you got those?

Enjoy the G700s too. I demod them yesterday at ping. Great set of irons I could easily game.

No where near the feel and I struggled a little because of the size and offset. Yes, they are so forgiving, but I had a hard time getting comfortable in my short time with them. Could I game them.... for sure after some more time with them. The 790s just feel so darn good and the G700s cannot even compare.

Did some chipping around the greens today with the 9 iron and it felt less harsh than the Gmax irons. Felt I had more control of my shots.

They usually deliver early orders ahead of time.  Same thing with i200... lots of people got theirs before the release date.  Maybe they try and get early orders shipped before they hit shelves to prevent a backup as much as possible?

Most fitters should have them in their fitting cart already....
