Inspired Rethinking In New Ping Iron

With the new i200 irons, Ping technicians say they have created a club that produces faster ball speeds for greater distance and possesses exceptional forgiveness and feel.

They were able to do those things, they add, by developing a head design that employs a muscle-stabilizing bar and a deeper, longer tuning port as well as a thinner, faster face. In addition, a soft elastomer insert activates at impact to enhance the face flexing as it also dampens vibrations. And the weight savings from the employment of a thinner face and modified tuning port structure allowed company engineers to move mass to the toe and hosel regions to increase forgiveness.

The i200s come with a 431 stainless steel clubhead that features a “hydropearl” chrome finish made to repel moisture for better control as it also minimizes fliers from wet conditions and lies in the rough.

The irons have minimal offset and a sharper face radius as well as soles that are designed with added bounce and a more contoured leading edge for a profile that glides through turf without digging or bouncing.

“The i200 iron is engineered for golfers who want an iron with a clean look that delivers exceptional feel, distance and forgiveness while providing the trajectory control they need to play with precision,” said John A. Solheim, Ping’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Bringing these benefits into one iron required our teams to rethink how the face and cavity structure can work together to improve overall performance.

“The feel is amazing, and the gains in forgiveness are significant for an iron this size. It’s a shot-maker’s iron by design, but it will fit a lot of golfers because it is so easy to play.”
