What we say...

Tech:

By combining the speed and forgiveness of a hybrid with the workability and control of an iron Ping reckon they’ve created a new product category with the Crossover. A wide body and sole mean there’s a low and back centre of gravity location, and plenty of perimeter weighting for forgiveness.

Our verdict:

Ping will shoot us for including the Crossover in the hybrids category as they insist its neither a driving iron or hybrid, but we can’t include it anywhere else. Looking at the data we’ve got to say the club does exactly as Ping promise, ball speeds are a bit shy of our fastest hybrids on test but they’re still high as is carry distance. The real area we do see a difference is drop off of carry distance between centre and off centre hits. A range of 17yards shows how even the MOI pumped body of the Crossover struggles to beat an out-and-out hybrid head for retaining ball speed.

Ping G Crossover Hybrid

Bottom line:

The Crossover is a lump of a golf club, but it’s this increased size that improves performance. They take some working into a set, but we feel if the longest iron you hit with any confidence is a #6 you could well look at the #5 Crossover (because it’s more forgiving) before replacing long irons with hybrids.
