The new Ping i20 irons australia promise optimized performance through a progressive set design but can they live up to the long line of success of previous i-series irons.
A new key feature of the i20s is the cavity structure design that manipulates the CoG (center of gravity) locations. In the long irons the cavity is cut more perpendicular to the ground, progressively pulling the CoG back to elevate ball flight in the long irons. For shorter irons the cavity is cut closer to perpendicular to the face which moves the CoG down and towards the front to give players more options with trajectory.
The i20 irons australia attempts to satisfy that audience by utilizing a series of designs that make the long irons forgiving and high-launching while blending in more-penetrating mid and short irons offering control for precise shot making. PGA Tour player Mark Wilson won the 2012 Bob Hope Humana Classic the first week he had the new discount PING i20 irons at low price in the bag. Not a bad introduction for PING's latest i-series offering.
I played punch shots into the wind with all the low irons which have a larger head – the Ping engineers have designed the face so they get progressively larger when you get to the long Ping G20 Irons australia, offering more forgiveness. They also give you a higher launch angle – something I wasn’t looking for at Turnberry, but moving the ball back and playing a three-quarter swing took care of that.
I really liked the look of the i20s. Some may find the top line a little thick if you are used to playing with blades, but not so much that it will put the better player off buying these. The lower Ping G25 Irons australia have a smaller face and are less off-set for improved control, and when I finally did get to see my low irons hitting the green you could tell how well the ball was picking up all the grooves on the clubface, giving you all the control you need around the greens.
All in all, if you're looking to improve your game as a middle handicapper trying to get down to a lower handicap, and you're searching for a club that is going to give you the feel, touch and control you want round the green and a little forgiveness from the longer irons, I would highly recommend you give these a go.
