Look out for PING’s new irons – GMax and i Irons. GMax introduces COR-Eye Technology for faster ball speeds, distance and forgiveness and the i Iron offers workability and ball-flight control.

GMax Irons: £96 per club with steel – £108 with graphite (shown above)

PING’s longest, straightest iron ever by utilising COR-Eye Technology, which simultaneously activates the sole, face, and top rail to increase ball speed up to 3 mph over previous PING models, providing greater distance with control. COR-Eye creates a faster ball speed that is constant across the entire face, so even off-centre strikes deliver longer, straighter results.

A new cavity structure houses a concealed Custom Tuning Port that connects to the sole. With this deeper position and wider sole, each iron’s centre of gravity is moved lower and further back to increase the MOI for more forgiveness, accuracy and consistency. Distance-generating lengths and lofts are optimised for efficient gapping with the distance control and high trajectory needed to hit and hold more greens.

An enhanced leading edge, more trailing edge relief and refined bounce help optimise turf interaction. The 4- thru 8-iron faces are heat treated using a specialised process that strengthens the material by approximately 40%, creating a Hyper-17-4 alloy and allowing the face to be thinner for greater flexing and faster ball speeds. Longer blade lengths and increased offset maximise forgiveness and ensure a higher max shot height.

The set has a unique swingweight progression where the 4, 5 and 6 irons have lighter swingweights to help square the face at impact, creating faster ball speeds for longer, straighter shots.

– Available 4-9, PW, UW, SW

PING iIron

 

i Irons: £112 per club with steel shaft – £124 per club with graphite

PING has used 431 stainless steel for its high strength-to-weight ratio and softer feel to deliver workability and trajectory control with forgiveness.

Larger head sizes and low/back CG positions in the long irons offer forgiveness and distance. The smaller short irons and wedges provide precision and control. Workability comes from a head and hosel geometry that ensures trajectory control for precise shot-making. Weight savings from the 431 SS and the deeper Custom Tuning Port position allow for expanded perimeter weighting. A tungsten toe weight in the 3 thru 7 irons increases forgiveness. An elastomer CTP weight tucks into the tuning port, which is lower on the face to align with the impact area for a more solid sound and feel.

The sole glides through the turf with ease, ensuring the solid contact required to play with control and consistency. An optimised, versatile bounce profile delivers exceptional performance in all conditions. The thin top rail and minimal offset create a confidence-inspiring look at address. Lengths and lofts are optimised to increase distance with proper gapping.

– Available 3-9, PW, UW
– Stock steel shaft: PING CFS Distance (Soft R, R, S, X)
– Stock graphite shaft: PING CFS Graphite (65 Soft R, 70 R, 80 S)
– After-market stock shaft options (no upcharge): Dynamic Gold S300, X100; Project X 5.0, 6.0; XP 95 (R, S), N.S. Pro Modus3 105 (S, X)
