Our Review:How do you make the ball fly faster off an iron? One way is to make the face thinner. To do that you need a material strong enough to hold up at impact. For Ping's G iron that meant using a new heat-treatment process to create what it calls "hyper" 17-4 stainless steel, which the company says is 40-percent stronger than traditional stainless steel. The irons also feature a circular structure in the back cavity to improve performance on mis-hits across more of the face. The result is four times the amount of face deflection compared to the G30 irons.
Specs: 6-iron: 27 degrees; PW: 45

lowThe sound is killer crisp. You know with your ears if you hit it well.
midA green-in-regulation monster. Mis-hits will still have enough to get you home.
midTakes a lot of the guesswork out. Doesn't deviate much in direction or distance from shot to shot.
highIt's super long on mis-hits and flushed shots. Flies easily and works for you.
