Equipment news: Ping launch new G30 ironsJuly, 2014
The latest irons from Ping are designed to offer extra distance without compromising on accuracy
5 With an emphasis on significantly increasing ball velocity and accuracy through a combination of advanced aerodynamics, plus new face designs and materials, Ping say the G30 irons will provide measurable distance gains without sacrificing control or forgiveness.
“Our engineers once again accomplished something that is unique to Ping products – they elevated performance significantly in key areas without sacrificing other important attributes,” said John Solheim, Ping’s chairman and CEO. “We’ve proved you can hit the ball higher and farther while increasing forgiveness and control.”
In the G30 irons, progressive lengths and lofts and a thin face that maximises ball speed help launch the ball farther and higher with control.
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.
Progressive offset generates higher ball flights in the longer irons and penetrating, controlled trajectories with the scoring clubs 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, while a slightly longer blade lengths increase forgiveness, most noticeably in the 4 through 7 irons.
