GEAR | WHAT’S NEW 21 NEW GEAR THE LATEST & GREATEST FROM THE BIGGEST BRANDS PING i500 & i210 IRONS PING INTRODUCES TWO HIGH-PERFORMANCE IRONS. Continuing its reputation as a leader in high-performance iron designs engineered to provide the exceptional distance and forgiveness, PING has introduced the i500 and i210 irons. The sleek-shaped i500 iron employs much of the same technology as the popular G700 iron in a smaller, more compact, muscle-back appearance. Its forged, C300 maraging-steel face is precision milled and combined with a 17-4 stainless steel body to create metal-wood-like performance. This generates significant ball- speed increases and lower-spinning, higher-flying shots with stopping power. In the compact i210 iron, PING’s engineers put a premium on feel and precision. This is achieved by leveraging a patented multi-material construction that combines a 431 stainless steel head with a larger and softer elastomer insert. The additional volume of the custom tuning port allows for a 30% larger insert and creates 25% more face contact. This results in activation of the elastomer to produce a soft and pleasing feel. They also took great care in refining the shape and look to ensure the iron appealed to the discerning golfer’s eye. The i210 iron’s face and grooves are precision milled, as is the cavity, giving it a high-end appearance. Tighter groove spacing in the pitching wedge and U-wedge provides greater precision and helps prevent fliers on shots where control matters most. A new hydropearl chrome 2.0 finish repels water to greatly improve consistency from the rough and wet conditions. > SHOP THE BIGGEST RANGE | BEST ADVICE | LOWEST PRICE | SHOP 24/7 OR LOCATE A STORE | drummondgolf.com.au i500 Irons Specifications Multi-material construction: Forged, maraging steel, precision-milled face.
