Showcase: Ping G15 and i15
Ping's latest sticks: The G15 and i15 drivers and irons
Made with a “fade-bias,” the i15 is designed for players who need shot shaping capabilities from a driver. Its 460cc’s are masked nicely by a traditional pear shape and deep face, both of which help promote a better energy transfer into the ball. Also, internal weights away from the face knock spin rates down for a more Tour-like trajectory and control. Needless to say, despite its effort at being a better player’s driver, the i15 still retains a measurable level of distance and forgiveness that many other Tour-inspired drivers simply don’t have. Fairway woods and hybrids also available (not shown).
Designed to progressively get more forgiving as the irons get longer, the new i15 Irons are midsized irons with the ideal blend of shotmaking capabilities and forgiveness. How do they do it? One way is by making the longer irons larger, and the shorter irons smaller. Also included is a titanium toe weight and a Custom Tuning Port located in the cavity that not only dampens vibration, but enhances sound and feel, too (2010 USGA-conforming grooves).
