Why we like it

Ping realises off-centre hits are part of the game, even for single-digit players. This iron doesn’t ignore that unpleasant reality but also places an emphasis on a clean aesthetic and more pop than a ball coming off David Warner’s bat. The construction is almost metal-wood like with a hollow-body design using C300 maraging steel for the face. The sole has an “arcing cascade” that aids in the flexing of the face and combines with strong lofts to ensure the desire for distance is satisfied.

  • A weight pad pushes mass down to lower the CG.
  • An EVA polymer improves feel without hindering face flex.
  • Tightly spaced grooves increase spin.
  • 7-iron: 29 degrees; PW: 42 degrees

Reviewer profile

“Compact, blade-like design with a surprising amount of forgiveness. Mis-hits stay on line.”
