If you’re interested in purchasing a new set of golf irons, then you should consider the Ping G iron set.

Made using the latest in golf technology, Ping has combined COR-Eye technology, previously used in the GMax irons, and the compact G iron for a more high tech approach to your next golf game.

The COR-Eye technology used can be seen towards the back of the iron’s head. The use of this tech increases your ball’s speed.

Compared to previous irons, such as the G30 iron, the face of the G iron is 32 percent slimmer. This means that the iron is able to bend much more upon impact.

The use of COR-Eye technology is not the only highlight of this iron. Because it uses Hyper 17-4 Stainless Steel within the iron’s head, it’s able to keep up strength while maintaining its thinness. In order to be 40% stronger than traditional stainless steel, the 17-4 Steel has undergone 6 hours of heat treating, reaching temperatures up to 1040°C.

With a deeper cavity, the face of this iron appears to be free standing. Using CTP (Ping Custom Tuning Port) is positioned towards the following sides of the hollow. This is used as a weighted pad, which alters the club’s center of gravity, making it slightly deeper than traditional irons. All of this works to alters the MOI. However, it also helps with resistance and off-center hits.

Editor's Pros & Cons
Pros
  • Using the latest in golfing technology, the Ping G iron promises improved MOI,
  • The sleek construction of the iron ensures it is 32% slimmer than Ping's previous designs.
  • 40% stronger than traditional irons thanks to the process of heat treatments in order to create the Hyper 17-4 Stainless Steel.
  • Promises improved distance and forgiveness.
Cons
  • The design can appear bulbous and insipid.

Appearance

Compared to previous Ping irons, such as the GMax or the G30, the G iron has a similar appearance. The main difference in the G iron is the more compact face, and a difference in color as the G has a lighter finish in terms of its color. The blade of the iron is also shorter in length. Despite the shorter length, this iron promises the same loft as its predecessors.

The profile of this iron is also more sleek, particularly thanks to its slimmer appearance, especially when you compare it to the GMax and the G30. It’s thinner construction is thanks to the rounded top line, which sleeks its form.

The updated color of the G iron is partially thanks to the recently released Ping I iron. The similar color profile means that you can blend the G iron in with your other golf clubs, such as the Glide wedges.

Another incredible perk of this iron is that its amply sized sole of the G iron, along with the restructured cavity, allows more weight to be pulled back.

Compared to the GMax, the fuller adhesive on the back of the head gives you a 22% greater surface area. As a result, the feedback given from the iron (in terms of sound and how it feels in your hand) is exactly what you’d anticipate. Thus, making it a must-have iron for anyone looking to improve their game.

Ball Speed

Ball speed is one of the most important things you need to consider when choosing a new iron set. At the end of it all, you need to be certain that your iron is both accurate and effective, especially when it comes to ball speed.

The G iron uses COR-Eye technology to generate a higher ball speed, especially in comparison to the G30. The COR-Eye even gives a noticeable variation in club speed.

This iron, in particular, has gone further than the Ping i-iron. However, you need to take into account that the six iron set has a slightly weaker loft.
However, when you compare the G iron’s loft to the G30 and GMax, you’ll see that they’re relatively the same.

Comparatively, the G iron and the GMax perform similarly to one another, except for one area. The GMax has a larger head, which generates further MOI. Meaning the accuracy in the GMax gives higher dispersion results compared to the G iron. Despite this, this particular iron still produces decent MOI in comparison to other irons.

Lastly, according to PING, the use of COR-Eye technology increases the face’s flexibility. This makes this particular iron quadruple times more flexible in comparison to the G30 iron.

Technology

This club has been created using recent improvements in the golfing industry. This was done to assist golfers to achieve further range as well as consistency amidst their hits. The main advancements handled within the G iron is the COR-Eye. As we mentioned beforehand, this increases flexibility. Because of it’s improved the flexibility it generates a greater ball speed more frequently.
This works to gain more speed and range, as well as creating perpendicular landing points. This promises to keep your ball on the course.

The sound and quality of this iron was something Ping put a lot of time and consideration into aswell. Why? Because they realize that it’s an important quality to the average golfer. By giving the G a slimmer profile, they can significantly reduce the volume of weight in a specific area. This weight is then dispersed to the low toe, including the edge of the club. This creates a greater MOI, thus increasing forgiveness.

An extra piece of key technology used is the Ascending Weight Technology shafts. This improves the overall performance. This assists golfers with squaring the impression, ensuring they’re able to achieve a higher swing speed. However, it also works to improve the character of the club as well as promoting trajectory.

Sound & Feel

Upon the ball’s impact, this club produces a hard, ear-catching click noise. This feedback on each hit is given through each fluctuation plus how it feels. The stronger it feels in your hands, the more center the blow was.

Performance

In order to access the overall performance of the G iron, we need to consider three key things: distance, playability, and forgiveness.

The length of the G irons are long, however, they tend to land more softly compared to other distance irons that are available on the market. This is perfect for increasing your scoring potential throughout your game. While they may not be the longest irons available to you at the moment, they’re long enough for any distance obsessed golfer.

When compared to several different irons the g iron offered a longer range. On average there was a difference of five yards. It was also shown that there was an increase of ball velocity of 1.25 miles per hour, alongside a 0.5-degree loftier launch angle as well as a reduced spin rate of 250 rpm.

They even work to overcome ball speed forgiveness on off-center strikes. The overall ball speed is excellent and very desirable to have.

The average ball flights with this club tend to be straight and reasonably high, offering a perpendicular landing angle. More experienced players can use this club to their advantage, shaping shots to a certain degree.
A wide sole helps cleanly scoop shots out of rough terrain and fairway bunkers.

If you’re searching for an easy to hit the club, then look no further. This is one of the best clubs for any golfer trying to improve their game. Offering minimal loss in terms of ball speed of off-center hits, this iron proves itself to be an impressive champion.
This club, in particular, has a tendency to rescue severe heel and toe misses. This is mainly due to the positioning of the CTP, which produces higher flexibility and higher MOI.

Launch/Flight

If I had to sum up the launch of this particular iron in two words it would be consistently high. While that may seem like an overstatement for anyone who hasn’t used it yet, be rest assured that this particular club lives up to its reputation.
Delivering an impressively high launch was one of the main design goals in the creation and construction of this iron. So naturally, this information should come as no surprise. This club was designed to ensure the ball goes high and maximize playability, regardless of the hit.

Within the set structure, the CTP (Custom Tuning Port) allows the club to push the center of gravity lower. Thus, the overall launch angle is increased, changing the MOI for extra forgiveness. Alongside this, you also have the AWT 2.0 shaft, with its change in weight. This is designed to help you control and increase the ball launch.
Within the longer irons, you have a lighter shaft, while they get heavier into the wedges. The mix of these two things make for a more appealing iron and increased ball flight. A desirable advantage for struggling golfers who need a helping hand.

Structure & Materials

The overall structure of the G iron has been rounded out. Not only does this give the design a refreshing touch, but it’s also hasn’t been overdone. With the use of COR-Eye and the circle depression, there is a lot happening within this club. It’s unique and interesting structure is certainly a focal point many golfers notice about this piece. The majority of the technology used in the construction of this is visible, meaning you’re able to see it in action. While this may be an undesirable feature for any golfer who is interested in maintaining a sleek and simple design, this complex and layered structure will be of interest to others.

The rounded structure of this iron creates a smooth finish, while the main body of the club holds their own throughout whatever testing you put it through.

Key Features

The G iron is a must-have if you’re looking to improve your game. Not only is it accurate and reliable, but its also a club you can depend on. It’s incredible design and inspired use of technology means that hitting the ball on the club’s sweet spot is easier than before. Generating a higher ball speed and gaining forgiveness on any off-center hits is simpler to achieve.

While naturally high-hitting golfers may find the trajectory too high, many other golfers will be able to use it to their own advantage.
