PING has introduced the i530, a premium iron model engineered to deliver higher ball speeds with precision for score-lowering performance.

The i530 irons offer the perfect solution for golfers who prefer the look of a blade but are looking for more distance. Available for custom fittings and pre-order at authorised PING golf shops now.

RRP: £190 per club with stock steel shaft/ £200 per club with stock graphite shaft

Player’s distance and control

Distance gains come from multiple sources within the i530 iron, including an internal weight pad that ensures more face flexing and a lower centre of gravity for more ball speed. The forged, highly flexible maraging steel C300 face is precisely welded to a 17-4 stainless steel hollow body. A polymer applied inside the head on the back of the face improves feel and sound while maximising face bending.

The body design also contributes to distance by accentuating face bending. The lower CG is more aligned with where impact occurs, and distance-optimised lofts help ensure more distance and higher maximum height for green-holding results. Three loft configurations (Standard, Power, and Retro) are available to optimise launch conditions during the custom fitting process.

Premium look and performance

Blade enthusiasts will appreciate the thin top line, narrow sole and shallow face height. The i530’s clean, premium look features a new machining technique that thins the back wall of the hollow-body design, saving weight to increase forgiveness and tighten dispersion for greater accuracy and added distance. Precision-milled MicroMax grooves combine with the hydropearl chrome 2.0 finish to ensure consistent launch and spin from all conditions.
