Still the sleekest best looking driver on the market. Now they added racing stripes for alignment, YAY!!!
Can't wait to give this one a try.
Just from the pics, not a huge fan of the racing stripes, seems to go against the "player" theme of the i-series. Will have to wait until I see it in person.
Irons look good, seem pretty similar to the i20's, not really much they should or needed to change IMO Great option for players looking to go to that style of club and for players that are using an older i-series set that want to upgrade. Love the foggy chrome finish.
Progressively bigger on a much smaller scale. The 4 irons are not that similar.
Yes the offset on a G20 4i is .29 and the i20 is .20 and with the shape of the G20 head it makes the offset look more severe as well on those.
I don't care for the stripe on the driver, but at least it probably IS useful for alignment, unlike the garish graphics on some other drivers.
The (pictures of) the irons look real nice to me. Clean and pretty classic. There is a family resemblance to the S55, which can't be bad. I had to throw in the caveat because I just came from Edwin Watts getting my first look at the Callaway Apex irons that I had been pretty excited to get hold of. Something about them turned me off so completely when I got 'em in my hand I didn't even bother trying one out. Pitty, they look good in pictures too. Maybe it was the rubber bumper in the back... But at this point I wouldn't pull the trigger on another set of irons until I got some of these Pings in-hand though.
I really like how they are built to launch the ball especially in the longer irons. Unless you are @iacas you jack a ball with the i20 six iron over a 40' fence that is only like 30 yards away. I do see how some players may want a little lower launching set, but for most of us with average swing speeds they are just right and super forgiving. Foggy chrome cast boner man!
The G long irons are almost like a mini hybrid, big sole, lots of offset, thick topline. i20/25 long irons are bigger from toe to heel than the i20/i25 mid/short irons and have more offset but much less compared to the G-series.
Yeah look forward to seeing it in person, maybe the idea will have grown on me by then
