Golf Australia Express : GA Express 206
thegear OFGLORY Available from tomorrow; RRP: $260 each (steel), $280 (graphite) ping.com PING iBLADE IRONS T HE body of Ping’s new iBLADE IRON is precision cast from a high strength- to-weight ratio 431 stainless steel, resulting in the softest, purest feel the manufacturer has ever achieved in an iron. With the workability to shape shots on command, the compact iBlade head delivers consistently precise distance and trajectory control that surpass skilled players’ expectations. Ping engineers designed the iBlade with the mindset of the best players in the world. A thinner top rail, minimal offset, straight leading edge and sharp, high toe will appeal to the eye of the discerning player. Refined bounce angles and ample heel relief produce a workable sole design. Further precision comes from the milled Tour-spec grooves and precision-machined fly-cut face. The engineering team ensured every club in the iBlade set delivers exceptional distance while improving overall gapping. A much thinner face yields greater ball speeds for increased distance throughout the set with higher overall trajectories and precise control. Forgiveness is also factored into the design. Nearly ‘pure’ tungsten weights are pressed into the toe of every head to increase the moment of inertia (MOI). The weights are subtly concealed to maintain the clean head design. With a very high MOI for an iron its size, the iBlade iron is Ping’s most forgiving blade-style model yet. E SPECIFICATIONS: Ping’s iBlades are available in 3-iron to pitching wedge. The stock steel shaft is Dynamic Gold S300, X100; the stock graphite shafts are Ping’s CFS 65G Soft R, CFS 70G Regular and CFS 80G Stiff. After-market stock shaft options (with no upcharge) include: Ping AWT 2.0 (R, S, X), Project X 5.0, 6.0; XP 95 (R300, S300) and N.S. Pro Modus3 105 (S, X). The stock grip is Golf Pride’s new Decade Multi-Compound black/white.
