PING unveils i59 irons and Glide Forged Pro wedge series
Employing a new technology known as AlumiCore, PING has introduced the i59 iron – a forged blade that delivers the look, feel and trajectory control preferred by better players with forgiveness unprecedented in blade-style designs.
The custom-built i59 irons are now available for custom fittings at authorised PING retailers around the world.
An aerospace-grade aluminium insert allows approximately 30 grams of material from the centre of the club to be redistributed to the perimeter, some in the form of toe and shaft tip weights, elevating the MOI to match that of the larger PING i210 iron. Each iron in the set requires a different size aluminium core, adding to the complexity of the manufacturing process to deliver a forgiving, forged iron with a crisp, solid feel that delivers lower launch and trajectory control with the precision expected from a blade design.
The multi-material construction also features a precision-machined face with new MicroMax grooves for tighter spacing and a geometry that results in an average of four extra grooves on each club to reduce fliers in the short irons and preserve spin in the long irons.
The irons (RRP £239 per club with stock steel shaft) are available 3-PW in 10 color codes (lie angles) with a range of stock and optional shafts.
Meanwhile, the new Glide Forged Pro wedge series (RRP £199 per club with stock steel shaft) have been engineered for golfers in search of versatility and improved shot making inside the scoring zone. The tour-inspired, high-spinning design is offered in two grind profiles and multiple loft options to fit players who rely on precision and control.
