The Ping iCrossovers have been launched for 2023 with the long-game iron debuting in the i range for the first time. What can we expect?

The Crossover irons were previously launched as part of the G400, G410 and G425 range and the success means they are now available in the elite level i range having been launched at the same time as the i230 irons.

The new iCrossover provides an alternative long game iron that can be in the bag instead of hybrids and woods, with Ping’s tour staffers having input into the new release aimed at lower handicappers.

What Ping say about the iCrossover Irons:

“Newly designed with proven Trajectory Tuning 2.0 adjustability, this compact design for better players elevates long-iron performance from a lower CG and maraging steel face that generate faster speed and higher launch to carry shots farther with stopping power.

“An EVA polymer enhances feel and sound. The rounded lead edge optimizes turf interaction, a toe screw and tip weight increase MOI, and shorter club lengths ensure better control.

“Blade lengths are slightly shorter with less offset than previous crossovers, providing a compact, tour-style appearance.

“To fit seamlessly into a set, standard shaft lengths are approximately quarter inch shorter, and sole shaping is similar to the i230 irons, including a rounded lead edge with ample bounce for clean, solid strikes.”

Ping iCrossover Specs & Design

Ping crossover irons have been around in the last three ranges from of the G Series and the are now fully launched as an elite level performer in the i range.

Aimed at lower handicap golfers, Ping have made the clubhead in the new iCrossover long irons more compact with less offset, a rounded lead edge and plenty of bounce for clean ball striking.

They have also made the shafts in the iCrossovers a quarter-of-an-inch shorter to blend these irons into the new i230 irons that they sit perfectly alongside.

There is more speed off the face than the previous versions of the crossovers thanks to a thinner steel face welded to a stainless steel body for a higher launch angle from these irons.

The alterations mean that the CG has been lowered and is now positioned directly in the hitting impact zone, while a small cavity in the clubhead is filled with an EVA polymer to improve feel.

The iCrossovers also feature milled MicroMax grooves and a matte black hydropearl 2.0 finish for consistent strikes and spin levels.

There are tungsten toe and shaft tip weights to help increase MOI and add more forgiveness, while there is now a lightweight adjustable hosel to provide eight different set up options.

Verdict: Are Ping iCrossovers any good?

The Crossover irons were incredibly popular among golfers when first released in the G range and it only seems right that Ping have come up with an elite level design.

The more compact head will really suit better golfers looking for long game irons as an alterative to woods and hybrids and the iCrossovers certainly deliver that.

They have been well thought out too with the shorter shafts making them the perfect companion to the new i230 irons. All in all, some impressive improvements from Ping.
