Ping G10 vs. G15

16 posts in this topic

Interested in upgrading clubs in the near future. I have hit both and really like both. I like the price tag on the G10's a little bit better, however, I am wondering if I should just pay the extra and get the G15's.

I know they say the G15's are some of the most forgiving clubs on the market, but in comparison to the G10's... are they that much more forgiving?

I have been playing about 2 years or so. I am consistently in the high 80's to low 90's. I dont want to work the ball just yet... my goal is to become a consistent ball striker and know that I can hit shots at any given time.

So which should I go for??

Thanks for the input guys. Greatly appreciated.

Personally, I would go with the cheaper G10's. They are great clubs. I had them (still do) but just got the S57's because I "needed" a new set.

Tested the G10 and i10 irons a couple of years ago when I swapped out clubs.  G10 has a high-launch head, plus a high-launch stock shaft. It just got the ball up in the air too much for me.

Same problem with the Callaway Big Berthas. I ended up getting the Callaway X20s, a UGI club with a mid-launch shaft.

If you have decent clubhead speed, you might want to avoid the G10s.

The G15s seem to be popular with a wide range of handicaps. A pro at a demo day said he recommends G15s to 20+ HDCP players, plus he plays them himself. He said G15s work best - as do all irons - if you have the right shaft for your game. Hint: get fitted.

Went today and got fitted...

Surprisingly they came up with exactly what the Ping Web Fit came up with.. Green dot, standard length. Stiff flex, steel shafts.

Still making the great debate... but leaning towards the G10s.

More input is welcome!

if you have any interest at all in the g15's, i would get them. only because they are pings top of the line club, and if you get the g10's you will always be wondering what the g15's would have done differently for your game, and how much more improvement they would have given. could be a mental thing that would never allow you to reach your full potential with the g 10's simply because you would be wishing you got the g15's. even if i had to wait a couple of extra months to save up, i would go for the g 15's.

I never hit the G-10's, but liked the G-15's alot.  I'd say if your budget allows, go for the G-15's.  There are some pro's using them, so you should be able to work the ball when you're ready, and until then you'll benefit from the forgiveness they offer.

I game the G 15 irons and love them but I say go for the G10's if saving a bit of money is important to you as these irons are very similar in thier design...

You say you got fitted for stiff flex steels shafts?  Was that the AWT shaft?  Did you know that they offer the Z-Z65 shaft as a stock option (wait I am not sure about that for the G10?).  Are you familair with the difference between the AWT and Z-Z65 shaft?

Well either way you will become even more a part of the PING family with which ever G iron you go with...welcome!

It was actually for the AWT shaft... I dont think the Z-Z65 came stock on the G10's.

I actually just ordered the G10's with the steel, stiff flex AWT shafts. 5-PW, LW...

Thanks for all of the words... got a stupid good deal on them, so I went ahead and made it happen. Cannot wait for them to come in!

Have had the G10's for 3 years this month; took them to Phoenix last year and had Ping bend the lofts to the G15 specs (about 1 degree stronger).  My wife had G10's also and ordered her G15's after that trip; said she couldn't believe the difference between the 10's and 15's; ordered mine Tuesday (6 - LW); got the 20, 23 & 27 G15 hybrids last week.  Looked long and hard at the Mizuno JPX-800's; in the end, had played Pings for more than 20 years and just couldn't get away from that look.

Congratulations!...

The AWT shafts are very good shafts (made by True Temper for PING...I think?) and are a progressive kick point shaft to help you get the ball in the air with your longer irons...plus there is no "up-charge".

Welcome to the family!!!

I am thinking about replacing my TEE hybrid (16 deg) with a G 15 hybrid 17 deg and possibly going to a 20 deg one as well...let me know how you like the G 15 hybrids as I have read conflicting things about them...but all I know is if they play anything like my G 15 irons then they have got to be sweet!

I don't see why there's a big debate.  The G15's are built on the same platform as the G10, which was an "upgrade" to the G5, and so on.  A couple of milimeters difference in Center of Gravity (CG) location won't make a big difference.  The color scheme doesn't make a difference.  THe G10's were "top of the line" when they came out... why wouldn't they be now?  Just because they're a little older?  If you hit them both and liked them both, get the G10's and use that extra $$$ on something else, like Ping shirts, a few lessons (everyone should at least take a few), or a few extra rounds this year.

Thanks Justin!!

Funny you say that... I just purchased a couple new Ping G10 hats and a Ping shirt. And a few rounds are always thrown in there.

I hit the G10 xg and the G15. Liked them both about the same. I ended up purchasing the G10's because they were cheaper...

    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried tom speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.

      I am indeed, All down the west coast here in ayrshire there are some fantastic courses and I always feel blessed to have played most of them. I recently played round the kintyre course at Turnberry for the first time it was a real gem. Sadly the 70mph winds did nothing to help scoring leading to a morale sapping 120 score but a great track none the less. I spent my youth years playing in troon on the public owned courses. A student of the links!
