Ping launches i25 irons
The new i25 irons - part of the Ping i25 range - come with a raft of technological inovations to promote greater consistency, accuracy and length.
The i25 irons are engineered for different skill levels with technology that provides versatility and forgiveness. Each 17-4 stainless steel head has a specific function with regard to the centre of gravity, the bounce, and the offset.
Ping i25 irons review:
The long irons have bigger heads and wider soles, which aid in getting the ball airbourne. The mid irons and wedges are more compact with thinner top rails and narrower soles to promote lower ball flight for precision on the greens.
The dual-stabilizing bars are narrow in the long irons, but wider in the short irons.
The narrow bars increase ball velocity and spin, producing a higher trajectory and greater distance, whereas the wider bars in the short irons decrease face deflection generating lower-trajectory shots with far more control.
The custom tuning port (CTP) sits lower in the head to locate the CG low to optimize launch conditions. A tungsten-toe weight elevates the MOI, stabilising the head on mis-hit shots.
Four wedges also complement Ping's i25 iron set. The pitching wedge is now easier to open up and play finesse shots, while the gap, sand, and lob wedges have a higher and more forward CG to promote a slightly lower trajectory with additional spin.
Ping's i25 irons are available to pre-order now and come with an RRP of £90 per club (steel shaft) and £110 per club (graphite shaft).

Footjoy Women's Hydroknit Jacket Review
With all the qualities of a waterproof jacket yet none of the bulk. A certain winner for any conditions and it outperformed some waterproof jackets out there. Impressive stuff from Footjoy.
