*AUTHENTIC PING EQUIPMENT is sold online via "request a quote". All orders will be shipped directly from PING located in Arizona. If a club-fitter is not available in your area, we encourage our customers to use the PING nFlight Web application (below) for guidance for your purchase of PING equipment so that it performs its very best for your game. Check it out!
After providing a few simple measurements, you can quickly get a "static" fitting for any type of club, or a complete set. nFlight Web will suggest models and specifications that can be used as a starting point for a complete fitting with a trained fitter.
The body of the iBlade iron is precision cast from a high strength-to-weight ratio 431 stainless steel, resulting in the softest, purest feel we've ever achieved in an iron. With the workability to shape shots on command, the compact iBlade head delivers consistently precise distance and trajectory control that surpass skilled players' expectations.
PING engineers -- good players themselves -- designed the iBlade with the mindset of the best players in the world. A thinner top rail, minimal offset, straight lead edge and sharp high toe will appeal to the eye of the discerning player. Refined bounce angles and ample heel relief produce a workable sole design. Further precision comes from the milled tour-spec grooves and precision-machined fly-cut face.
The engineering team ensured every club in the iBlade set delivers exceptional distance while improving overall gapping. A much thinner face yields greater ball speeds for increased distance throughout the set with higher overall trajectories and precise control.
Forgiveness is also factored into the design. Nearly "pure" tungsten weights are pressed into the toe of every head to increase the MOI. The weights are subtly concealed to maintain the clean head design. With a very high MOI for an iron its size, the iBlade iron is our most forgiving blade-style model to date.
Ping iBlade Iron
The inspiring new iBlade iron is distinguished by the softest, purest feel we’ve ever achieved in an iron, with the workability and control to shape shots on command. Through extensive research and observation of leading tour professionals, PING engineers designed the clean, compact iBlade iron to surpass the expectations of skilled golfers who rely on the precision and control to execute the most demanding shots in the game.
The thin face (half the thickness of the S55 iron) yields greater ball speeds for increased distance throughout the set with higher overall trajectories and precise control. A hydropearl chrome finish repels water for more control and helps minimize fliers from wet conditions and lies in the rough.
The unprecedented feel is achieved through a combination of soft 431 stainless steel and a larger surface area behind the face that houses an elastomer insert. The insert is "activated" at impact, resulting in more vibration damping in your hands for a softer feel and pleasing sound.
Nearly "pure" tungsten toe weights (netting a 70% increase in mass relative to the S55 iron) are pressed into the toe of every head to increase MOI, a key factor in the precision of the iBlade iron.
Refined bounce angles and ample heel relief, optimized with the same sole width as the S55 iron, produce a workable sole design for confident shot making from all conditions. Further precision comes from the milled tour-spec grooves and precision-machined fly-cut face.
POWER SPEC LOFT
These are design specifications that may vary due to manufacturing tolerances.
Power Spec: A fitting option for players looking to boost their iron distance or decrease spin to hit a desired trajectory window. The Power Spec is a custom-designed loft configuration that delivers a power boost in a calculated fashion without sacrificing the integrity of the club’s design.
Lie angle based on Blue Color Code at standard length.
Standard swingweights for graphite-shafted clubs are 1 point lighter than shown.
Achievable swingweights depend on shaft and grip combinations.
The 5L grip features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction and a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel. It is available in two versions - round for clubs with PING's Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, and ribbed for the hybrids and irons.
