Ping has announced details of a new iron design called Ping i20. The new set will replace the i15 clubs and sit between the players’ S56 and more forgiving G20 offerings.
The new model is aimed at players searching for a compact, classic look but with a little more forgiveness in the longer irons. The long irons are designed to be slightly larger, higher launching, and more forgiving. The smaller short irons feature less offset and should improve distance control. Tungsten toe weights have been added to the head to offer perimeter weighted forgiveness. Ping has given its i20 irons a low-glare satin chrome finish as well as a traditional ferrule to create a classic look.
There are two stock shafts available in the new Ping i20 design – a Ping CFS steel shaft and a graphite TFC 169i option. The Ping i20 irons are expected to be available from mid March with a recommended retail price of £90 (s) and £110 (g) per club.
