PING released some exciting new golf clubs this summer and they’re all shipping out today. There are two sets of irons, the i500 and i210 models, as well as new Glide Forged wedges. We took a visit to their headquarters in Phoenix to put these clubs to the test and talked with PING product expert Marty Jertson. You can’t afford to miss these exclusive videos as we review PING’s newest golf clubs.
The unique i500 irons fit into a category Marty Jertson at PING described to us as player’s power. You get the distance of a game improvement iron all in a sleek, smaller package of a player’s iron. Distance is generated from an extremely strong maraging steel like the one used in fairway woods surrounded by a stainless steel body that allows the face to flex and propel the ball forward at maximum speed.
The new i210 irons replace the i200 model in PING’s iron lineup. These clubs are built for scoring with emphasis placed on impact and precision instead of distance. They are incredibly stable irons with the amazing feel golfers expect from a PING player’s iron. A softer, larger elastomer insert creates that buttery feel at impact. The sole design helps these clubs go through the turf with ease for every shot you need to create on the golf course.
Glide Forged Wedges
Marty Jertson used three words to sum up the Glide Forged wedges for us: classic, pure, perfect. This is a shot maker’s wedge with a pure feel for that added touch around the greens. They are only made with one sole grind that fits between the standard sole and thin sole from other Glide wedges. Glide Forged wedges are forged from 8620 carbon steel for the more pure, solid, muted feel you’ll find in a wedge.
