Smaller Is Better
Designed to appeal to players who like a blade-style club that appears smaller at address, but still provides plenty of forgiveness, the i10 irons feature a thin top line and reduced offset. A narrow, cambered sole provides playability from a variety of lies for those who put a premium on shotmaking.
Low In The Toe
The G10 irons are designed with extremely low toe weighting for increased MOI, and hence, enhanced forgiveness and straighter shots on mis-hits. The oversized clubhead also features and a unique cavity shape and a wider sole for less digging.
The CG of the new G10 irons is located low and deep in the clubhead for higher-launching, lower-spinning shots. A new Custom Tuning Port adds to the stability of the club on off-center hits, while an elastomer CTP insert improves the sound and feel at impact.
The Custom Tuning Port on the i10 irons features a rib-like shape that stabilizes the face for improved feel. The extra weight provided by the new cavity design is placed in the toe of the clubhead to increase the MOI, making the i10 irons significantly more forgiving than typical blade-style irons.
PING’s new steel shaft featuring Ascending Weight Technology incorporates a “sliding scale” method to iron weighting. Long iron shafts are lighter than short irons to help create a more consistent feel throughout the set (the lightest club should be the driver; the heaviest the wedges). The result is more clubhead speed and distance in the long irons and more control and consistency in the short irons.
