Written By: Tony Covey

The bad news for those of you who’ve already read our story on the G30 drivers and have fallen in love with the Turbulators; there aren’t any on the irons.

You probably should have seen that coming.

More bad news too for those of you who aren’t exactly fans of PING’s G-series irons. There’s probably nothing in the G30 iron that’s going to radically change your perceptions.

It’s very much true to PING G-series designs.

The good news for those of you who love the G20, G25, and basically G-anything else, as well as those of you who might have been straddling the fence a bit; PING is offering up a series of subtle refinements that make the G30 a worthy and compelling replacement for the G25.

PING G30 Irons-3

Control, Forgiveness, and Distance Where it Matters

With the increasing prevalence of distance irons, unsupported faces, which offer more deflection and greater ball speeds, are now among the hottest trends in iron design.

The downside of wholly unsupported faces is that they often negatively impact dispersion. They fly farther, but don’t always put you closer to the pin. That’s not generally the sort of trade-off PING is down with.

Among PING’s goals with the G30 was to better control the bending of the face to create an iron that gives you the distance you need, while also keeping you tighter to the pin.

To than end, the faces on the G30 are slightly thinner (compared to the G25), and while that does create a bit of extra ball speed, the primary purpose for thinning the face was to free up some additional mass, which PING very quickly relocated low and back.

PING-G30-Iron-CTP-1-4

Quite frankly, this movement of discretionary weight, especially to the low/rear portion of the clubhead, isn’t anything we haven’t heard before (lots and lots of times), but it has to be mentioned (again). As low and as far back as they can put it…that’s where PING wants the weight in the G30 irons.

As you can see from the photos, while still very much a game-improvement iron, the G30 is considerably more refined (my opinion anyway) than the G25, but it most certainly still looks every bit a PING iron.

Heads are still large. There’s still a ton of offset too, but the lines are generally softer, and cleaner (aesthetically I thought the G25 was a step backwards for PING). From top to bottom and toe to heel, the steel flows across the eyes just a bit better.

As is usually the case, PING is leveraging a soft, elastomer badge to help improve sound and feel.

An i-Series Sole on a G-Series iron

PING G30 Irons-8

One of the more significant design changes is the addition of an extra 2° of bounce (average) to the G30′s sole. Effectively PING has borrowed a large portion of the G30′s sole design from the i20 and i25 irons. It’s a design which PING claims works very well for any angle of attack, and serves to further increase the playability of the new model.

The one pronounced difference between the G30′s sole and that of the i25 is that the G25 is wider on the trailing edge. It’s not a portion of the sole that comes into play as far as turf interaction is concerned.

Instead, the extra width allows more mass to be placed…you guessed it, low and rear.

PING G30 Irons-22 PING G30 Irons-7 PING G30 Irons-10

Progressive Loft and Length

When you look at the spec sheet (below) for the irons you’ll no doubt notice some unusual numbers in both the length and loft columns. Rather than the standard 1/2″ difference between irons, PING chose to use a longer 5/8″ progression (same as their Karsten irons). Many would also consider the gaps between lofts to be equally non-standard.

Yeah…it’s weird.

For whatever it’s worth, if you were to strip the numbers of the sole of the clubs, the length to loft ratio of the G30 iron is almost identical to that of PING’s beloved Eye2, so this isn’t exactly a first for PING.

Of course, the 6-iron from an Eye2 set would more or less qualify as an 8-iron today, so there is that.

PING G30 Irons-20

What can we say? This probably isn’t an iron for the purist.

As a tradeoff for increasing the lengths of the shafts, PING had to reduce head weight throughout the set. Lighter heads usually result in a reduction of MOI (bad). To offset that loss, PING increased blade lengths slightly. That, along with the all of that other weight relocation stuff we covered actually produces a net gain in MOI over the G25 (good).

“If we have all the best knowledge it’ll be hard to mess up the product”. – Marty Jertson, Senior Design Engineer, PING

Seriously…Distance Where It Matters

PING G30 Irons-6

As you probably guessed, PING created those weird progressions for a reason. The idea is to provide additional distance where it matters (the middle and long irons), while improving gapping throughout the entire set.

For the most part, there’s no practical reason for your new wedge to go any farther than your old one, so PING more or less left wedge performance alone.

What they did do was squeeze another 3 yards on average out of the 7 iron, and 4 yards (again, on average) out of the 4 iron. While there is some strengthening of lofts, what the PING guys are exceptionally proud of is that there were actually able to increase the average max height for both the 7 and 4 irons.

The net result of their efforts is more consistent…let’s just call it better…gapping throughout the set.

Farther, higher, softer, and somehow more forgiving….there’s your takeaway.

Top 10 Golf Gadgets Under $100 (but more than $50)

Top 10 Golf Gadgets Under $100 (but more than $50)

Post image for Top 10 Golf Gadgets Under $100 (but more than $50)

Earlier this week we published our list of the Top 10 Golf Gadgets for Less than $50. This time around, we’re giving you our…well, actually, just like last time, this is YOUR list of gadgets over $50.

If it is over $50 is it  really a gadget? – Jim N., MyGolfSpy Newsletter Subscriber

Yes, Jim. We think so.

More accurately, this is a list of the Top Gadgets between $50 and $100, so don’t expect to find any fancy rangefinders, or kick-ass round tracking gizmos like Game Golf here. What you will find is a list of gadgets which, while not cheap, won’t completely break the bank.

Just like our under $50 list, all of the items on this list were suggested by your fellow MyGolfSpy readers.

Orange Whip Trainer

ow

Below $50, above $50, it doesn’t matter. No single item on either gadget list received more support than the Orange Whip Trainer. Already recognized at the #1 Training Aid by PGA.com, the Orange Whip is an immense favorite with our readership. Regular use of the Orange Whip will improve flexibility, strength, coordination, and tempo. While this list is generally in no particular order, the Orange Whip is #1. Don’t take our word for it, trust your fellow readers.

Tour Striker

tourstriker-1

Martin Chuck’s Smart Ball made our under $50 list, but if you’re willing to spend a bit more there isn’t a swing trainer we like better than the Tour Striker. Available in a variety of sizes, the Tour Striker teaches, nay, forces you to create forward lean at impact. As far as training aids that you can actually hit balls with go, it doesn’t get any better.

Golf Buddy Voice GPS

golfbuddy-voice2

For all the app-based GPS technology that’s our there right now, some golfers just like to keep it simple. At the push of a button Golf Buddy Voice will literally tell you the distance to the center of the green. It can also provide distance to the front and back of the green as well. It’s not the most feature-rich GPS on the market, but for less than a hundred bucks you simply can’t beat it.

Golfer’s Toolbox

gollferstoolbox2

The Golfer’s Toolbox is billed as the Swiss Army Knife of Golf.  Alignment, ball position, stance, swing plane, putting plane, balance, fitness, stretching, and tempo; the Golfer’s Toolbox can help you with all of it. I’m not sure what’s more remarkable, the sub-$100 price point, or that fact that it fits in your golf bag.

SKLZ Quickster Range Net

sklz-quickster

There are a hundred…probably a thousand swing nets out there, but our pick, actually, your pick, is the SKLZ Quickster Range Net. The 6′x6′ model takes less than 90 seconds to assemble, and unlike competing nets won’t droop or sag. It offers multiple targets and is suitable for other sports as well. Lacrosse anyone? Didn’t think so.

CS2 Putting System

cs2

There are plenty of putting trainers out there, but the CS2 is the one that our readers mentioned most often. Like most putting trainers, the CS2 Putting System is supposed to help you build a consistent putting stroke. Alignment, path, face angle, and speed control are all covered by the CS2. What we really like is that its innovative rail system works perfectly with both straight back straight through and inside to square arc putting techniques.

Golf Swing Shirt

golfswingshirt

Likely the strangest looking contraption (I laughed the first time I saw it) on this list, the Swing Shirt is designed to help you stay connected through the golf swing. While it’s easy to mock…that’ is to say you’ll probably be mocked while wearing it, the Swing Shirt will help you grove a consistent swing on the range and on the course (not sure I’d condone wearing it on the course). Not just for full swings either, Swing Shirt will improve your short game (including bunker play) and putting too.

Birdie Ball Putting Green

birdieball

A putting mat absolutely had to be on the list, and while there are about 500 to choose from, there aren’t a ton of quality products to be had within this price range. The Birdie Ball Putting Mat is the exception. Thick enough for a ball to actually fall in the cup, and contour adjustable, Birdie Ball Putting greens start at just $49.99, and with their current summer special, the 9′x2′ model qualifies for our list as well.

Jawbone Jambox Bluetooth Speaker System

jawbone-jambox2

While not technically designed for golf, several of you told us that your portable bluetooth speakers are practically indispensable on the golf course. For less than $100 the Jawbone Jambox is small enough to sit on the dash of your golf cart, and I’m certain you innovative types will no doubt find a way to attach it to a push cart as well. For another $30 you can get a PUMA Soundchuck which has an innovative magnetic strap system which allows it to attach to just about anything.

#10?

In case you haven’t been paying attention, our Top 10 list only has 9 gadgets right now. What’s #10? You tell us.

Leave a comment below telling us what you think we missed. When we have a consensus, we’ll add the most popular item to our list.

FIRST LOOK – PING i25 Metalwoods, Irons, and More

FIRST LOOK – PING i25 Metalwoods, Irons, and More

Post image for FIRST LOOK – PING i25 Metalwoods, Irons, and More

“The new metal woods and irons carry a common theme of increased distance but are engineered with the improved consistency, forgiveness and feel that we design into all PING clubs” – John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO

Let’s face it; PING can be a little boring. They don’t throw huge launch parties. They don’t make bold distance claims, and product releases generally come at a tortoise’s pace. I mean, my god…it’s been 2 WHOLE YEARS since the i20! How crazy (by TaylorMade and Callaway standards anyway) is that? Those guys will probably give me two more stories this month? PING…I’ll be lucky to get two more this year.

With all the fanfare of a typical PING announcement – that is to say there isn’t much – the Phoenix, Arizona based company let it be known that the 2-year old i20 series is getting an upgrade. In addition to the new i25 line, PING also announced a new hybrid/iron set (the Karsten), and a handful of Karsten TR Putters.

From an equipment writer’s perspective the PING way would border on intolerable if not for the nearly indisputable fact that each and every PING product is always better…even if only slightly so…than what came before it. The G20 was better than the G15, the G25 is unquestionably better than the G20 (by many accounts the PING G25 is the most forgiving driver on the market right now), and so the reasonable expectation is that the i25 is better than the i20, which is pretty damn impressive considering the i20 remains one of the best drivers we’ve ever tested.

Come to think of it, consistently improving performance almost completely devoid of hype is probably something we should all get excited about it.

PING I25 Driver

From our perspective (and hopefully some of yours), the most compelling thing we can tell you about PING’s i25 driver is that it is indeed mystery driver #13 in Our Upcoming 2014 Golf’s Most Wanted Driver Test.

PING, however, would probably appreciate it if we shared a few other noteworthy bits about their upcoming metalwoods line.

Performance

PING i25 Driver-4

While the PING i20 Driver was generally regarded as being for better players, or at least higher swing speed players, PING is doing what I think is a better job of defining the i25 player.  The reality is that depending on a variety of swing characteristics, golfers of all ability levels, and even different swing speed ranges, could benefit from a lower spinning driver like the i25.

The limiting fitting factor of the i25 is loft. PING maxes the i25 out at 10.5°, and while it probably would never have been a huge seller anyway, the lack of a 12°/HL option is a bit disappointing.  Beyond that, for golfers looking for a bit less spin (compared to the average driver), a flatter ball flight, and more roll, the i25 looks pretty sweet.

Essentially the guy we’re talking about is a mid to high spin golfer who may not want to eat the loss of forgiveness that comes with some of the other low spin drivers on the market right now.

To maintain MOI, or in this case, actually improve it compared to the previous model, PING has strategically placed tungsten weights at the perimeter of the golf club. To an extent, it’s boiler plate stuff, but the takeaway here is that you don’t necessarily have to trade ball speed for forgiveness.

Racing Stripes

PING i25 Driver-9

For me, the most intriguing aesthetic design element of the i25 is the racing stripes PING chose to put on the crown. PING has traditionally shied away from doing much of anything flashy with their drivers. Simple and understated is generally how PING does thing, so it’s not unreasonable to suggest that the stripes represent a step of sorts outside of the traditional PING box.

Rest assured, the stripes actually serve a purpose. As you might guess, they’re designed to improve alignment. PING says the graphics can come into play at setup (initial alignment of both the clubface, and the body towards the target), during the takeaway, and even at impact.

For whatever it’s worth, while I’m not ready to speak to any actual benefits of the racing stripes, as far as semi-elaborate crown designs go, the i25’s are exceedingly well done.

We’ve seen similar striped designs before (Geek’s No Brainer springs to mind), but the difference here is that stripes are muted, and contrast only slightly from matte black paint on the rest of crown. None of the guys participating in our Most Wanted Driver test have had anything negative to say about them, and quite frankly, my personal take is that the stripes are a huge improvement over what I’ll continue to describe as the Klingon Battle Axe alignment aid found on the G Series.

Change the Shaft, Keep the Swingweight

PING i25 Driver-16

Also introduced with the i25 driver, fairway, and hybrid is PING’s new PWR (Performance, Weighting, and Responsiveness) Shaft. The shafts, available in 55g, 65, and 75g, are available in different flexes and profiles to fit a wide range of golfers.

What differentiates the PWR series from basically anything out there on the market is that it gives golfers the unique ability to move between different weights, flexes, and profiles without altering the swingweight of their driver.

“With adjustable clubs, fitting for shaft weight has been limited because of its effect on swingweight. The PWR Series overcomes that by varying the CG location of the different weights so we can offer options that optimize ball flight while providing a better-feeling, more-responsive shaft”. – John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO

You can order your i25 at your preferred swingweight and know that you can mix and match any shaft in the PWR series without changing the way the club feels in your hands.

PING i25 Driver-18

PWR Series shafts are available in the following weights and flexes:  Stock graphite shafts: PWR 55 (R, S); PWR 65 (R, S, Tour S, Tour XS); PWR 75 (S, Tour S, Tour XS). Each weight is differentiated from the others by the color of the graphics (55 – Red, 65 – Black, 75 – grey).

The i25 driver is available in lofts of 8.5°, 9.5°, and 10.5°. The PWR Series shaft (your choice) is stock. While others continue to push the upper limits of what’s controllable, stock length for the i25 is more playable 45.25”.

MSRP for the i25 Driver is $440, but you can expect the actual street price to be less.

i25 Fairway Woods and Hybrids

As you might expect, PING is also releasing i25 Fairway Woods and Hybrids.

The i25 fairway offers a compact design that PING describes as “hot off the tee” (that’s about as ostentatious as PING gets). It features a tall face and internal weighting designed to help boost MOI.

The i25 Fairway Wood is available in 14° (Strong 3W), 15° (3W), and 18° (5W). Stock shafts are the same PWR series found in the driver.

MSRP for the i25 Fairway Wood is $275, but again, street price will be less.

PING_i25_fairway_3-15PING_i25_hybrid_19

The hybrid, which we assume is also hot when used off the tee (or anywhere else) has what PING is calling a more-forward hosel. Let’s call it what it is…offset. It offers reduced bulge and roll, a straighter leading edge, and a more squared-off toe.

Add to that an overall compact design, and what you really have is a player-centric hybrid with more forgiveness than you might expect.

To give you every bit of possible distance while still maintaining consistent gaps, PING placed the CG back in the lower lofted hybrids (higher launch) and more forward in the higher lofted clubs (lower launch, less spin).

Like the driver and fairway woods, the i25 hybrids feature PING’s PWR shafts (80g and 90g) and also maintain swingweight across all weights and flexes.

The i25 Hybrid is available in 17°, 19°, 22°, and 26°.

MSRP for the i25 Hybrid is $242.50, but (and stop me if you’ve heard this before), actual street price will be less.

Both the fairway and hybrids are made from 17-4 stainless steel. The fairway woods leverage the same +- ½ degree adjustable hosel system as the driver, and also feature the racing stripe crown alignment design.  The hybrids aren’t adjustable, and because of the comparatively shallow depth, there’s not enough room for the racing stripes to be beneficial, so PING left them off.

i25 Irons

PING_i25_iron

Slotted between the s55 Irons and the G25 Irons in PING’s current iron lineup, the new i25 irons are designed to strike a balance between control and forgiveness.

The long irons feature larger heads with broader soles to promote higher launch and more forgiveness. What PING calls narrow face-stabilizing bars increase velocity.

The Mid and short irons are comparatively more compact, have narrower soles and less offset. Wider stabilizing bars are designed to produce a lower, more controlled ball flight with better feel.

Irons with pronounced performance and feel differences between the long and short irons are becoming more and more common as manufacturers work to build individual irons better suited to the task at hand. Basically, the ideal ball flight differs dramatically from a 5 iron to a 9 iron, as does the amount of forgiveness necessary to make the iron playable.  PING and others are starting to explicitly account for that.

Manufacturers are placing more emphasis on these distinctions and are showing a willingness to compromise on the continuity of the set as a whole if the end product achieves the desired result.

As we’ve come to expect from PING, the i25 irons are bulkier than you might find in similarly placed irons, but the PING way has always been one of performance before appearance, and while no doubt prettier designs will appeal to many, I suspect that for the guy who likes (or even tolerates) the aesthetic qualities, the performance will be tough to beat.

PING i25 Iron Specifications

PING-i25-iron-spec

Stock Shaft: PING CFS (Steel), PING TFC 189i (Graphite)
MSRP: $110/club (steel), $137.50/club (graphite)

Karsten Hybrid/Iron Set

PING_Karsten iron

Perhaps the most intriguing of the products announced today, if only for the fact that it was more of a surprise than everything else, is the Karsten Hybrid/Iron set. While your initial assumption might be that it’s a direct replacement for the super game-improvement K15 set (that was my thought), that’s not really the case.

PING isn’t using the phrase Super Game-Improvement with the Karsten. Instead, PING is emphasizing the fact that the Karsten is designed to be a true distance iron, which makes it a first for PING.

It almost goes without saying that distance irons like TaylorMade’s SpeedBlade, Callaway’s X2 Hot, and Cobra’s BiOCell are part of  the biggest trend in the iron market right now, and PING hopes that their offering will appeal to that same broad audience.

PING_Karsten hybrid

According to PING, unlike those other distance irons on the market, their new irons are engineered to provide predictable distance control, and an extremely high MOI; offering forgiveness and feel not usually associated with the distance category.

While the Karsten’s head sizes are similar to the K15’s, that’s really where the comparisons end. The Karsten provides higher ball speeds and higher launch, which provide greater distance, and steeper descent angles; producing shots that basically stop where they land.

Made from 17-4 stainless, the Karsten features a wide sole design, and a deep center of gravity. Like other PING designs, the Karsten features a polymer Custom Tuning Port (CTP) which helps reinforce the thin face that provides those ball speeds I mentioned in the previous paragraph.

The hybrids have a deeper profile and are designed to blend in perfectly with the irons while maintaining consistent distance gaps.

Like the i25 irons, the Karsten features a progressive CG design with lower lofted irons launching higher and with more spin than their higher lofted counterparts.

Finally, an extreme (PING’s word) amount of internal heel and toe weighting raises the MOI to provide maximum performance, even on those shots that might not be struck with the sweet spot.

What we’re talking about is a textbook PING iron designed to go farther than anything they’ve designed before.

Karsten Hybrid/Iron Specs

PING-Karsten-hybrid-iron-set-spec

Hybrids are available with graphite shaft only, and are not sold separately.

Stock Shaft: PING CFS Distance (Steel)/ PING KS401 (Graphite)
MSRP: 106.25/club (Steel), $125/club (graphite)

Karsten TR Putters

Karsten TR_Anser 2

Finally, PING is introducing 5 new putters featuring their popular TR (True Roll) Technology. It’s probably safe to assume that GolfSpy Dave is going to take a deeper look at these in the near future.

For now, we’ll just mention that the Karsten series features a copper PVD finish, and includes models to fit all stroke types (Straight, Slight Arc, and Strong Arc).

Models include: Anser 2 (345g, Slight Arc), B60 (345g, Slight Arc) , PAL (360g, Slight Arc), Anser 5 (365g, Straight), and Zing (350g, Strong Arc)

MSRP for each putter is $162.50. Add $35 for adjustable-length models.

More Coming Soon

As we’ve already mentioned, the PING i25 Driver is part of our 2014 Golf’s Most Wanted Driver Test, and as we get deeper into 2014 we fully expect to be taking a closer look at this entire new lineup from PING. Stay tuned.
