PING’s i10 and i15 irons have always been highly-functional, but there are arguably better-looking clubs on the market – but now with the launch of their new i20 irons, PING might just have found the perfect balance between great aesthetics and stunning performance.
In terms of looks, the new i20 irons resemble PING’s S56 more than the previous i15s, but there’s certainly more forgiveness. The vertical Custom Tuning Port optimizes the centre of gravity, while the tungsten toe weight also helps to make the irons easier to hit.
The irons have been designed as a progressive set, so the long irons offer a high-launching ball flight while the shorter clubs offer more of a piercing trajectory and a greater deal of control. The longer irons are slightly larger too, while the shorter clubs offer a more compact look behind the ball.
The brilliance of these irons is that they genuinely will suit a wide variety of golfer – Senior Equipment Editor Jon Greathead (8 HCP) has been testing them to good effect, while World Number Two Lee Westwood has also been impressed with them.
We also think that even golfers with anything up to a 15 handicap will be able to get good use from them too, but we would strongly advise getting up to PING HQ in Gainsborough for a fiiting.
The irons will retail at £90 per club with a steel shaft, and £110 each in graphite.
