MAXIMUMSPEED PING'S BRAND NEW GMAX IRONS I N CREATING its new GMax irons, Ping has developed attributes to maximise speed while also tweaking elements usually seen as conventional in modern irons. Ping calls GMax its longest, straightest iron ever by utilising COR-Eye Technology that simultaneously activates the sole, face and top rail to increase ball speed up to three miles per hour over previous Ping models. COR-Eye creates a faster ball speed that is constant across the clubface, so even off-centre strikes deliver longer, straighter results. A new cavity structure houses a concealed Custom Tuning Port that connects to the sole. With this deeper position and wider sole, each iron’s centre of gravity is moved lower and farther back to increase the moment of inertia for more forgiveness, accuracy and consistency. Distance-generating lengths and lofts are optimised for efficient gapping with the distance control and high trajectory needed to hit and hold more greens. An enhanced leading edge, more trailing edge relief and refined bounce help optimise turf interaction. The 4- thru 8-iron faces are heat-treated using a specialised process that strengthens the material by about 40 percent, creating a Hyper-17-4 alloy and allowing the face to be thinner for greater flexing and faster ball speeds. Longer blade lengths and increased offset maximise forgiveness and ensure a higher maximum shot height. The set has a unique swingweight progression where the 4-, 5- and 6-irons have lighter swingweights to help square the face at impact, creating faster ball speeds for longer, straighter shots.
