Ping i59 Forged Irons - Steel
The PING i59 Golf Irons provide a solid feel, a consistent, crisp impact, and a flighted trajectory with added forgiveness. Ping has placed an aerospace-grade aluminium insert (AlumiCore) in the Irons and this is joined to a forged 1025 carbon steel body and 17-4 stainless steel laser-cut face. This feature delivers reliable, precise distances and performance, and the MicroMax grooves are built for improved spin and control. Also featuring a Hydropearl 2.0 head finish, these irons repel water for consistent performance in any conditions.
An aerospace-grade aluminium insert allows approximately 30 grams of material from the centre of the club to be redistributed to the perimeter in the form of toe and shaft tip weights, elevating the MOI to match that of the larger PING i210 iron.
MICROMAX MILLED GROOVES
The precision-machined face has new MicroMax grooves for tighter spacing and a geometry that results in an average of four extra grooves to reduce fliers in the short irons and preserve spin in the long irons.
A thin topline and proper offset presents the clean, streamlined look preferred by skilled players. The hydropearl 2.0 finish repels water to ensure predictable, consistent performance from wet and dry conditions.
Toe and tip weighting elevate MOI to reduce the stat area and achieve a level of forgiveness unprecedented in a forged design.
100% INSPECTED MANUFACTURING STEPS
During development of the iron, PING’s innovation and engineering teams spent significant time perfecting the manufacturing process, which includes 100% inspection of numerous steps, including sole shaping, head polishing, face machining and head forging.
The low-launching Project X LS (Low Spin), steel shaft offers an ultra-stable, stiff design that minimises spin with a tight feel to fit the fastest swing speeds. The Recoil ES SmacWrap graphite option provides control and distance, with higher damping for improved feel.
