Ping i200 irons: Preview, photos, specs, release date

The Ping i irons were great. They had a look that appealed to better players while being packed with technology that improved forgiveness, ball flight, distance and so much more. Now the company is introducing the i200 irons, which Ping says are even better thanks to advances in materials and construction that allow the company to maintain a player-appealing look.

Ping worked to create a head design which uses softer 431 stainless steel that has a 30 percent thinner face than the i iron while applying a hydropearl chrome finish which repels moisture for better, more consistent contact from the rough. The head features a muscle-stabilizing bar and a deeper, longer tuning port that work with the thinner and faster face to produce ideal feel and acoustics at impact. Also doing big work is a soft elastomer insert, which doubled in volume from the i iron, that reacts at impact to deliver more face flexing at impact for improved ball speed throughout the face.


The weight savings from the thinner face and the improved tuning port were redistributed to the toe and hosel to improve moment of inertia protections, with the long irons designed to launch higher for more distance while the short irons were developed for a more precise command of the scoring shots.

As you'd expect with a better-player iron, the i200 irons have minimal offset and an overall sharper look, complete with added bounce and more contour in the leading edge on the sole to give relief through any kind of turf interaction.

The stock shaft for the i200 is the proprietary PING AWT 2.0, which employs a steeper weight progression paired with a variable step pattern. The KBS Tour, Dynamic Gold, N. S. Pro Modus 3 105, XP 95 and Project X shafts are also available at no upcharge.

The Ping i200 irons are now available in 3-9 irons, PW and UW for $135 per club in steel and $150 per club with a graphite shaft (stock is  PING CFS 65/70/80 (Soft R, R, S)).
