What we say...

The Ping G5 irons won TG’s game-improvement irons test last year, and nothing has changed: they are as good as ever, competing against more expensive models on an equal footing.

From long to short irons, the whole set is really well proportioned and is just as suited to a decent golfer looking for an ultimate forgiving set as it is to the beginner or 20+ handicapper.

Combine this excellent performance with a top-class fitting service, the company’s pedigree for making forgiving golf gear and Ping equipment’s enviable ability to hold its value, and we reckon this set is a clear winner.

And let’s not forget that the clubs are sold individually, so there’s no need to buy any clubs that will just sit in your garage waiting for an outing.

A deeper, parallel cavity design widens the sole and expands perimeter weighting.

Price Options (per club): £80 (Steel) £95 (Graphite)

    I looked and tried several sets before choosing these. I had mine fitted by my pro and it makes all the difference to my confidence. I know they are set up for me, not the average person. I am not hitting the ball much longer then my last set, Ping Eye2+, but a lot straighter and my scores have improved. I shot my first ever 80 gross with these clubs. :-)

    I had a G2 Driver and went with TG's backing to get custom fit in Gainsborough ( next to Trevor Brooking no less !) and they have been fantastic. V easy to use

    I only started playing in oct '06 with a set of hippo powerstrike, i wanted to move up a gear & after a lot of reading reviews, talking to people i settled on a set of G5's 5/pw +u/w (7 clubs) for £61 each.Got fitted by the pro, green dot. Arrived 8 days later, took them straight out on to the range & blow me, what a difference, i was fading, drawing, down the middle, i hit 180 balls & reckon 99% were spot on. Can not rate these highly enough

    After 15 years with the same clubs decided it was time for change. After test driving a lot of clubs settled for the G5’s (4-SW) just 6 weeks ago (got the driver and 3 wood as well. Read my review in the drivers section). These were by far the most comfortable clubs I tried. For me, better feeling than the newer Rapture series. Found these to be very forgiving with a great sweet spot. Did the whole custom fit thing, essential by the way, and was fortunate enough to be standard (no waiting for them). Great feel with pin point accuracy with relatively little effort. Excellent distance when needed yet subtle enough to get right up close to that pin. Always been a mid 90’s player, now, in just 6 weeks, a mid to low 80’s. Bring on the 70’s. Ping has changed my game and my enjoyment for it, forever. Thanks PING. I’ll never look back.

    Bought these a couple of months ago from American Golf for £499 (4-SW). Have just had a matching utility wedge made up. Excellent feel and really forgiving. I must admit though they seem a little delicate if that's the right word, like I might snap one if I duff one into the turf! None-the-less you really feel confident with the non fussy design and great feel at impact. I agree with the TG rating/review.
