PREVIEW: Ping Golf i irons


SHARE THIS STORY

For its new player's iron, Ping Golf brought in a new material for the first time.

Ping engineers used 431 stainless steel in creating its new i irons, primarily because its lower weight allowed for a bigger clubhead while not sacrificing the alloy's strength.

Better players score best with their wedges, so Ping made the heads of the short irons and wedges smaller to offer better control. The company says its head-to-hosel shaping improves trajectory control. Meanwhile, a tungsten toe weight in the 3- through 7-irons improves forgiveness. All heads sport multiple bounce options to optimize for turf and weather conditions.



The Ping i irons are available in 3- through 9-irons, a pitching wedge and utility wedge. Irons with the PING CFS Distance steel shaft (available in four flexes) cost  $135 per club. Add on $15 per club for the Ping CFS graphite shaft. Four after-market shaft are available at no extra charge.
