Showcase: Ping i-Series
If there’s one person to whom we can attribute the amazing advancements we’ve witnessed in golf equipment over the last 40-plus years, Karsten Solheim is the man. His knack for pioneering new designs inspired an entire golf industry to follow in his footsteps, with various equipment manufacturers constantly trying to outdo one another with technological advancements. Whether it’s a putter, wedge, iron or wood, Solheim’s original commitment to constant innovation as a means for success has been carried on by his son John and the rest of the crew at PING Golf. The company he founded continues to push the limit, and it shows in the new i-Series putter lines.
The i-Series is an eclectic collection of putters that features a specially designed urethane insert for enhanced feel and control. Of the nine models available, there’s a mix of popular shapes such as the Anser, Zing and B60, as well as the more recent and wildly popular Craz-E models that have aggressive alignment aids. www.pinggolf.com
The unique face insert on every i-Series is made of two pieces—one is urethane; the other is an appliquÃ© that enables the insert to produce a soft feel with a firm response.
The i-Series collection has nine models, ranging from the classic Anser to the new, innovative Â½ Moon and Â½ Craz-E designs.
Like all putters from PING, the i-Series models are colored-coded for a precise fit. Other options include belly shaft and grip models.
Attention To Detail
PING is notorious for its quality control, so it’s a sure bet any putter in the i-Series line is like all PING clubs—made to exact specifications for balance, weight and proper grip alignment.
Made To Winn
In addition to different putterhead models, hosel designs and lengths, the i-Series features a standard high-impact orange/black grip made by ever-popular Winn Grips.
