Ping i25 irons are making converts

By Mike Stachura

It has apparently been an easy transition for tour players from Ping's i20 irons to the new i25, a progressively designed line that alters blade length, sole size and even the width of the cavity's stabilizer bars through the set.

Of the staff players who have switched, Kirk Triplett won with them a few weeks ago on the Champions Tour, and Azahara Munoz was runner-up in Singapore on the LPGA Tour. Updates include a shift in the center of gravity on the long irons (slightly back) and short irons (slightly forward) to optimize performance.

The i25 ($800, set of eight) also has a 10-gram tungsten weight low in the toe and a softened sole relief to make the club forgiving enough for middle-handicappers.
