PING GMAX

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

www.ping.com Avail­abil­ity: 4-SW

Stock shaft: CFS Dis­tance (s) CFS Graphite (g) plus 4 s op­tions at no ex­tra cost

7i loft/length: 30.5° / 37”

TECH: COR-Eye tech­nol­ogy al­lows the club­face to be thin­ner, which in­creases flex and Ping say al­lows the face to be­have like a div­ing board to in­crease ball speeds.

WE SAY: The

GMAX is de­signed for ul­ti­mate for­give­ness. Un­der­stand that and you’ll re­alise straight away why the head is so big. When we say big, we ac­tu­ally mean stretched longer from toe to heel to im­prove of­f­cen­tre hit per­for­mance. Looks aside the GMAX per­formed re­ally well, pro­duc­ing some of the high­est-flighted shots within the cat­e­gory. Yes, the heat­treated faces sound a bit “tinky” at im­pact, which some purists won’t like, but let’s re­mem­ber this iron’s not aimed at them.

VER­DICT: Ball speed drop-off be­tween cen­tre and off-cen­tre hits is slightly lower than Ping’s G, mean­ing the head is more ef­fi­cient. If your game de­mands ul­ti­mate for­give­ness, this of­fers it.
