VER­DICT Ping has a pen­chant for mak­ing irons that are easy to hit, and this is one of its best. A heat-treat­ing process pro­duces a face that’s 40-per­cent stronger (than the Karsten, Ping’s pre­vi­ous model in this cat­e­gory) in the 4- through 8-irons for ex­tra ball speed. Lighter swing­weights in the 4- through 6-irons also make it eas­ier to square at im­pact. The club­face is thin­ner than the Karsten model and, in con­junc­tion with the topline and sole, cre­ates a div­ing-board­like ef­fect to gen­er­ate more ball speed. Cos­met­i­cally, there’s an ad­di­tion of a fer­rule for the first time on a G-Series iron. These irons won’t elim­i­nate all your mis­takes, but they’re about as close as you’re go­ing to get. COM­MENTS (M) A club that will make any golfer bet­ter. (H) The look at ad­dress is as com­fort­ing as you will find.
