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.
