Features, customization and performance
The CORE-Eye technology can work well for extreme distances. With the right technique, you can improve the speed of the ball. This is done by the connected sole, face and top rail which work together for an optimized result. Many manufacturers manage to develop some amazing soles and top rails but few actually focus their design on how they work together first. Ping is naturally making this with some of their irons and the G Max has seen this feature working to improve ball trajectory.
One of the signature features of the G Max is the long blade. This makes playing easier for new and intermediate players. But it also sets the iron in a select category of specialized tools which can work well in difficult situations. The long blade is coupled with 4 shafts stock option for a customized experience.
The G Max thus combines some of the best designs to provide a smooth playing experience. The longer design of the blade works well with the longer shafts. In terms of playing this results in longer and straighter shots. One of the biggest issues of new or intermediate players is managing to balance long shits with straight shots. The G Max can make this easier simply by re-inventing some old-school features like long blades and shafts.
The forgiveness of the blade is also improved which will make the iron one of the best options to improve your long shots, even when hit off-center. Coming with a longer design also means the irons are heavily based on force. Thus, player biomechanical force can be lower to achieve similar or better results. It also makes the iron a good training option for surpassing personal records and achieving the maximum trajectory with less force. It may also work on long tournaments where fatigue can cause some off-center shots and some loss of strength.
The Ping G Max is one of the best irons using CORE-Eye technology. It is recommended for players who look for increased flexibility in the clubface and need the extra safety of a long blade and a long shaft. It will work for most players, regardless of the level. The G Max is proof that some of the best new irons can be made with a combination of new and older designs.
