PING

Ping GMax

Our Review:

Ping has a penchant for making irons that are easy to hit, and this is one of its best. A heat-treating process produces a face that's 40-percent stronger (than the Karsten, Ping's previous model in this category) in the 4- through 8-irons for extra ball speed. Lighter swingweights in the 4- through 6-irons also make it easier to square at impact. The clubface is thinner than the Karsten model and, in conjunction with the topline and sole, creates a diving-board-like effect to generate more ball speed. Cosmetically, there's an addition of a ferrule for the first time on a G-Series iron. These irons won't eliminate all your mistakes, but they're about as close as you're going to get.
Price: $900
