Five things you need to know about the G400 iron tech...

Today's Golfer (UK) - - New Gear -

1 Un­der­cut top edge

Mass is re­moved from in­side the top edge and re­lo­cated lower to have more ef­fect on for­give­ness. A thin­ner top edge also lends it­self to flex­ing at im­pact, which is part of the rea­son they de­liver on a “higher and fur­ther” prom­ise.

2 Elas­tomer badge

Ping have taken in­spi­ra­tion from the car in­dus­try and used a three-piece elas­tomer badge to dampen vi­bra­tions. It means a more pleas­ing im­pact sound (think bet­ter player iron) and bet­ter feed­back to your fingers.

3 Hy­dropearl fin­ish

This lovely fin­ish, which is also on Ping’s iblades and i200s, gives the G400 a real qual­ity look. It also re­duces fric­tion with the turf, mean­ing less lost en­ergy at im­pact.

4 Re­fined shap­ing

A sharper ra­dius on the top edge and more round­ing on the low toe area give a tour-in­spired shape; some­thing you don’t of­ten hear about a game im­prove­ment iron.

5 COR-EYE face tech

COR-EYE tech­nol­ogy stiff­ens up the cen­tre of the face, mak­ing it pos­si­ble to use the club’s lead­ing edge to act like a hinge, in­creas­ing face de­flec­tion and bounce back.
