New Irons & Wedges from Ping for 2016.

G30 Irons
Progressive lengths and lofts and a thin face that maximises ball speed help launch the ball farther and higher with control in PING’s G30 irons [above]. Situated low in the sole of the undercut cavity design, the CTP structure helps lower the CG to ensure high launch with forgiveness, and it supports the 17-4 stainless steel face to provide distance control and a solid feel. The soft, elastomer badge enhances feel and sound in the perimeter-weighted design. A softer lead-edge radius and precisely calculated additions to the bounce profile ensure a smooth transition through the grass with a stable head, which adds to forgiveness. This versatile sole design is engineered to perform well with any angle of attack. Progressive offset generates higher ball flights in the longer irons and penetrating, controlled trajectories with the scoring clubs. Slightly longer blade lengths increase forgiveness, most noticeably in the 4 to 7-iron. Available 4-9, PW, UW, SW, LW. RRP: $180 per iron (steel), $210 (graphite).

Glide Wedges
PING took a first-ever approach to its Glide wedges, engineering them from the hands down to provide short-game performance and trajectory control on shots of every length. The proprietary Dyla-wedge grip is ¾ of an inch longer to encourage gripping down to control ball flight. The CFS Wedge shaft is optimised in weight, flex and balance to provide a stable feel and lower ball flights. Three versatile sole designs vary in width – standard, wide, and thin – enabling players to be fit for their angle of attack and common turf conditions. In lofts 47 through 54, loft-optimised Gorge grooves have a 16º sidewall to maximise groove volume for improved performance on full shots. A 24º sidewall and tighter radius in lofts 56 through 60 optimise spin on chips and pitches. The chrome-plated 431 stainless steel head repels moisture to create more friction for improved spin and consistency in wet conditions and lies in the rough. Available in standard sole (SS), thin sole (TS), and wide sole (WS).
RRP: $225 per iron (steel), $260 (graphite).

Ping GMax Irons

GMax Irons
PING engineered its longest, straightest iron ever by utilising COR-Eye Technology, which simultaneously activates the sole, face, and top rail to increase ball speed up to 3 mph over previous PING models, providing greater distance with control. COR-Eye creates a faster ball speed that is constant across the entire face, so even off-centre strikes deliver longer, straighter results. An enhanced leading edge, more trailing edge relief and refined bounce help optimise turf interaction. The 4 to 8-iron faces are heat treated using a specialised process that strengthens the material by approximately 40 per cent, creating a Hyper-17-4 alloy and allowing the face to be thinner for greater flexing and faster ball speeds. Longer blade lengths and increased offset maximise forgiveness and ensure a higher max shot height. The set has a unique swingweight progression where the 4, 5 and 6-irons have lighter swingweights to help square the face at impact, creating faster ball speeds for longer, straighter shots. Available 4-9, PW, UW, SW. RRP: $200 per iron (steel), $225 (graphite).

PING engineers used 431stainless steel for this club’s high strength-to-weight ratio and softer feel to deliver workability and trajectory control with forgiveness. Larger head sizes and low/back CG positions in the long irons offer forgiveness and distance where golfers need them most. The smaller short irons and wedges provide precision and control. Workability comes from a head and hosel geometry that ensures trajectory control for precise shot-making. Weight savings from the 431 SS and the deeper Custom Tuning Port position allow for expanded perimeter weighting. A tungsten toe weight in the 3 to 7-irons increases forgiveness. An elastomer CTP weight tucks into the tuning port, which is lower on the face to align with the impact area for a more solid sound and feel. The sole glides through the turf with ease, ensuring the solid contact required to play with control and consistency. An optimised, versatile bounce profile delivers exceptional performance in all conditions. The thin top rail and minimal offset create a confidence-inspiring look at address. Lengths and lofts are optimised to increase distance with proper gapping. With two PING shaft choices and four popular after-market stock options, golfers can match a shaft to their ball flight and feel preferences. Available 3-9, PW, UW.
RRP: $225 per iron (steel), $245 (graphite).
