PING’s proprietary PWR (Performance, Weighting, Responsiveness) shaft family optimizes the i25 driver through unique weights and stiffness profiles without altering swing weight. This is a key performance variable often overlooked with other adjustable drivers and allows the golfer to fit his or her swing motion and optimize ball flight.

This high-performance design generates distance and effective shaft fitting for a variety of skill levels.

HYBRID/IRON SET

DEEP PROFILE A bigger head positions the CG low and back to generate distance with a high trajectory.

WEIGHTED FOR FORGIVENESS Extreme internal heel-and-toe weighting yields high inertia for greater forgiveness in the 17-4 stainless steel head.

DISTANCE BY DESIGN Longer distance in the irons comes from precision-engineered loft- and club-length progressions scientifically paired with wide sole designs that yield a deep center of gravity. As a result, the ball flies farther and higher with unprecedented stopping power in a distance iron. The hybrids blend seamlessly for proper distance gapping and trajectories.

FORGIVING SOLE A wide sole in the 17-4 stainless steel irons positions the CG low and back, which increases MOI and sends the ball high and far, so golfers don’t have to hit the ball perfectly to maximize performance.
