Top features and customization in G irons
When it comes to making a list on the features of G irons, the face flexibility should be the first one to get the praise. The CORE-Eye technology comes with 4 X face flexibility. Of course in real life this doesn`t mean your performance will be four times better. But it is a staple on what can be achieved in terms of improving results and pushing technology innovation. The clubface comes with improved speed and height.
The face is made using a specialized heat treatment which gives the steel its unique characteristics. The thinner and faster face surface can only lead to increased forgiveness. Off-center shots seem to be benefiting the most, as well as overall maneuverability.
Having lighter iron is not always easy to achieve, this is why so many manufacturers cut corners instead of really spending time on improving the design. There are truly only two ways to improve the clubface design: lowering the weight using steel treatment or moving the weight to the back of the club to allow some design flexibility. Heating the steel with a 40% stronger combination of alloy has resulted in what is a clubface 4 times more flexible. Without making the face a better impact-zone, any weight reduction is not going to fulfill their full potential.
This unique design which is specific to the CORE-Eye technology activates the face, sole and top rail at the same time. Going back to the point about improving clubface design it can be said Ping is trying to push the limits of conventional head design into an organic approach which involves the sole ant the top rail. This leads to better ball performance with the hot face. The increase of speed is closely linked with the sole which acts like a base for strength, balance and maneuverability.
Another interesting technology is the AWT 2.0 Ascending Weight Technology. The shaft technology makes the weight decrease as the shaft length increases. The shafts come to round the whole balance of the irons without making them feel too heavy. They come in three stiffness options: regular, stiff and extra stiff for mid high, high and low mid launches. There is no better way of countering an improved head than with a high performing shaft. Although other shafts are also available, you can expect very good performance from the AWT 2.0 option.
Ping G irons use some of the most innovative steel processing processes on the market. The company has managed to deliver an interesting approach to irons manufacturing. It has done this without making it look like a huge effort which will make the whole experience more fluid. With the customization options in check, you can ensure you get the best performing iron in its class.
