Ping i210 irons add a new dimension to the range of options available from the leading manufacturer, who have created an iron softer and more precise than any previous model.
The tour-quality i210 irons target golfers looking for game improvements with Ping managing to have made gains in feel, speed and distance in the creation of the clubs.
Ping have made changes by increasing the size of the insert in the club head, increasing perimeter weighting and ensuring more face contact than before. The end result is i210 irons that offer supreme feel.
What Ping say about the i210 irons:
“Unlike a lot of irons on the market, Ping irons are created without sacrificing the performance attributes all golfers need to improve the distance, accuracy and consistency they require from their iron play,” said John K. Solheim, Ping President.
“In the i210 iron, we focused on designing a club that ensures a soft, buttery feel with the distance precision to attack flagsticks. We’re already seeing a lot of our tour players seamlessly transition into the i210 iron.”
Ping’s marketing adds: “A larger, softer elastomer insert in the compact head activates at impact for unprecedented feel while a machined face and grooves help provide the impact consistency and distance precision required for scoring. Hot, forgiving long irons and precise, controlled mid and short irons create a high-performing set.”
Ping i210 Irons Design
The i210 irons replace the i200 and Ping have managed to create a 25% improvement when it comes to face contact in the new edition.
That has been achieved because the elastomer insert in the club head has been made bigger by 30%, and it has also been made 50% softer for an even better feel across the Ping i210 irons.
The presence of a higher volume custom tuning port has increased the perimeter weighting to help increase ball speeds.
Club head speed has been increased thanks in part to the HydroPearl Chrome 2.0 finish which gets through the turf quicker – particularly the rough, repels water and adds to the durability of the irons.
It is with the shorter irons in the i210 range where the most significant changes have been made from the i200s, with the grooves in the wedges moved closer together.
They boast a new compact club head and the look of an incredibly high end iron. It is this model that some tours stars like Tyrrell Hatton, Viktor Hovland, Eddie Pepperell and Lee Westwood are favouring.
Ping i210 Irons Verdict
The improvements that have been made on the i200 irons that preceded them, means Ping have managed to eek out even more distance, without compromising the feel that the range was noted for.
The idea across the i210 irons is to help create more precision when it comes to approaches to the green and they have delivered that, while at the same time extracting even more short game feel thanks to the redesigned grooves.
The i210s are a real all-round performer and one that we recommend you consider if in the market for new irons.
