PING G15 & i15
This year, PING celebrated 50 years of delivering groundbreaking golf equipment. Recently, they unveiled their most comprehensive product offering in company history. Their headlining G15 and i15 Series drivers and irons incorporate attributes for two distinct types of players.

G15 DRIVER
The new G15 driver is a 460cc titanium powerhouse, constructed with PING’s ultrathin crown technology and external weighting for a higher trajectory with lower spin. As for the stick, the new PING TFC 149D shaft has a high balance point that enabled designers to add an extra five grams of head mass without beefing up the swing weight.

The clubface is a tad bigger than the previous G10 driver for even greater forgiveness and more power behind the ball for great distance. Oh, and the new red/black combo offers the best-looking cosmetics we’ve ever seen from PING. Fairway woods and hybrids also available (not shown).

SPEC CHECK
-All-titanium 460cc design
-Made for all skill levels, with emphasis on high-launch, low-spin drives; draw version also available
-PING TFC 149D or Aldila Serrano 60
-$350 MSRP
BOTTOM LINE: The G15 takes all that was great about the G10 and adds improved performance, aesthetics and a killer sound.



G15 IRONS
Game improvement has never looked better, as the new G15 irons are built to promote an aggressive, high launch for maximum distance and accuracy. Made of stainless steel with a Custom Tuning Port (CTP), the G15 irons have wide soles to prevent digging and also aid in promoting a higher ballflight. Cool looking and with awesome forgiveness, the G15 irons are sure to be a bona fide hit (2010 USGA-conforming grooves).

SPEC CHECK
-Available 3-PW in steel or graphite shafts
-MSRP $115/club steel; $142/club graphite
BOTTOM LINE: In a nutshell, the G15s have better looks and mid/long irons that are crazy easy to hit.
