Unique Features: With its S-series irons and last year’s iBlade, Ping has continued to revolutionize the player’s iron by offering golfers a clean, compact look with playability. Engineers were able to utilize an extremely thin clubface in the i200 design, and the weight that was saved in that process was redistributed to the perimeter of the club to increase moment of inertia. A thinner clubface also results in faster ball speeds and more distance. Also making the new i200 irons more playable is a higher leading edge and more bounce, which combine to improve turf interaction for more consistent results on slight miss-hits.
Tester Comments: I hit them very high and slightly longer than my current blade irons … Best quality: tight dispersion, no outlier distance differences (fliers stay close to normal, bad hits still within 5-10% of intended distance) … Unbelievable is all I can say!!
