The multi-material iron produces distance gains of approximately 7-10 yards and improved accuracy throughout the set. It’s the result of a complex design that combines a lower CG with stronger, custom engineered lofts and a thinner face that delivers up to 2 mph more ball speed – leading to significant distance gains without compromising PING’s famous forgiveness.
A key contributor to the added distance is the PurFlex cavity badge, an innovation with seven flex zones that allows more free bending to increase ball speed across the face. In combination with a lower CG, the badge contributes to the solid feel and pleasing impact sound. The stronger lofts across the set resulted in the addition of a 41° PW to ensure proper gapping options and allowed for standard lofts in the traditional scoring wedges (45.5°, 50°, 54°, 58°).
Among the refinements to the overall shape is a shorter hosel, which creates a more compact, clean look and helps lower the CG, aligning it closer to the force line to increase ball speed and ensure solid impact, especially low on the face. Approximately 1° of additional bounce throughout the set provides clean turf interaction and pure strikes, minimizing “heavy” shots that come up short. The high-density tungsten toe and shaft tip weights contribute to its high MOI and produce tighter dispersion patterns. The hydropearl 2.0 chrome finish delivers consistent performance from wet or dry grass.
