The 460cc G10 driver is engineered with a cast body and fully machined face from high-grade 6-4 titanium. The 460cc club head features a larger profile with a taller face and deeper crown that produces a higher moment-of-inertia for greater forgiveness and increased ball velocity. Using finite element analysis driven by a Cray Supercomputer, company engineers optimised the crown, sole and face structure interaction to ensure maximum energy transfer to the ball.
Thinner crown and face designs provided discretionary weight which was positioned inside the club head to lower the centre of gravity for reduced spin and higher launch. PING’s patented variable face thickness technology produces a thin, highly responsive hitting surface for increased ball velocity and greater consistency across the face. Available TFC 129D shaft flexes: Soft R, R, S and X. Also offered in Grafalloy ProLaunch Red (R, S & X) and UST V2 High Launch 65 (R, S & X). The standard G10 driver is available in 7.5°, 9°, 10.5°, 12° and 13.5° lofts.
The 17-4 stainless steel G10 irons are engineered with extreme low toe weighting to increase the moment-of-inertia for added forgiveness and consistency. The large, perimeter-weighted head features a new cavity shape and wider sole. The centre of gravity is positioned away from the face and low in the club head to promote higher launching, lower spinning shots. By creating a new shape for the Custom Tuning Port (CTP), PING engineers stabilized the hitting area for consistent ball velocity across the club face. An elastomer CTP insert helps produce a solid feel and sound.
The wide sole provides forgiving ground impact and contributes to the high launch characteristics of the iron. “The cavity design of the G10 allowed us to add a lot more performance to our large headed, maximum forgiveness iron option,” said John K. Solheim, PING’s Vice-President of Engineering. “We’re able to remove weight from the face yet make it even more stable than before. The weight is then repositioned in the low toe to drive up the MOI and increase forgiveness. It’s a game improvement iron that will appeal to a variety of golfers.” The G10 irons feature a stainless steel shot finish and Atomic Orange colour scheme and are available in 2-9, PW, UW, SW and LW.
