Ping Debuts its Forged Irons and Forged Face Driver
Ping has just introduced two new products, the Blueprint iron and the G410 LST driver. The Blueprint iron was designed with precision shot making in mind for golfers seeking more accuracy from their iron game. Fully forged from 8620 carbon steel, its small, muscle-back design will appeal to golfers who put a premium on workability and trajectory control. Its shorter blade length and sole width are optimized for a variety of course conditions. Their clean, small profile heads are combined with narrower soles, machined face and grooves and tungsten toe weight. It’s finished in a Hydropearl 2.0 chrome. Through extensive research in the lab and on-course testing with Ping Tour professionals, the company came up with the final design. These clubs undergo a four-step forging process, with each element 100% inspected to ensure long-lasting performance and quality.
The G410 LST (Low Spin Technology) driver is a lower spinning design in a smaller, faster head shape with added forgiveness. Its 200-400 rpm lower spin also produces a 3% higher MOI than the G400 LST. This driver incorporates the same movable weight technology as the G410 Plus, which allows golfers to customize the driver’s CG location by positioning the weight in either draw, neutral or fade bias to fine-tune their ball flight. Each represents 10 yards of correction, 20 yards between the draw and fade positions. At 450cc, it features a more rounded, pear-shaped titanium design. Its face sits slightly open with a score-line pattern that frames the impact area at address. The thinner, fully machined forged face is designed to deliver higher ball speeds for more distance. To manipulate trajectory, an 8-position hosel allows for loft and lie adjustments. These drivers are available in 9° and 10.5° lofts.
