How is distance control against G400 irons? I can't make up my mind between G700 or G400, what I love about G400 is that they stop on a dime and even come back a couple feet when going for the green. I fear G700 won't have that... anyone with some answers about this?
Rick Shiels has his full review up and he addresses the issue. He had very low spin numbers on the launch monitor but quite the opposite response on the course review, pretty cool to see his experience.
I demo'd the g700's against my g400's, the 700's launched higher and spun more, no noticeable distance gain, that was with the AWT 2.0. Put the Nippon Modus Tour 105 shaft in and the launch went higher, spun even more and saw a significant distance gain.
I was able to hit them side by side on the range today for the first time today and was blown away by the 700's. Felt better, looked better and performed better. I have played the g400's since they have come out and really thought they were awesome. I was hitting the ball pretty good this morning. The poor strikes still really got out there and tended to stay on line a bit more than the 400's.
I look forward to getting the irons on the course sometime this week and I will let you know how they do into the green.
