Ah, I see. I never hit a G700. Looking at the specs, PING ALTA shaft in SR flex on the G700 is 66 grams. This new Alta Distanza shaft on the G710 is 42g, so it's going to be more apples to apples with XXIO. I think these wide soled, long blade, offset, strong lofted heads are very much alike. These new ultra light shaft offerings could return a few yards to the geezers.
