Ping i20 vs. G20 irons

As one of the most famous golf brand in the world that has created numerous wonderful clubs, Ping has launched the newest i20 irons recently. The new ping i20 replace the Ping i15 clubs and sit between its S56 and Ping G20 clubs.

The new set of Ping i20 irons is produced to be high-launching. Its target golfers are those who are looking for compact heads but with more forgiveness at the top end. The i20 irons are a multi-material progressive set with the longer irons having slightly larger heads and the short irons penetrating. The low-glare, satin-chrome finish irons appeal more to players of all abilities.

“We expect to see the i20 on Tour, but the S series irons will be our most popular iron out there,” Schweigert said. “The i20 is a progressive set design. The long irons are longer from heel to toe. They have a higher inertia and are easier to launch up in the air.” “The short irons are just fantastic. They are solid, and the distance control is really, really good.”

Since there is i20, there must be G20. Ping G20 Irons were launched last year. The G20 irons are the evolution of the extremely popular G15. G20 irons keep classic Ping’s “G” look, and the weighting in the head has been changed and the feel has been modified. Ping adopted a lighter finish for Ping G20 Irons, and the head is slightly more compact to look down on compared to G15 irons.

Ping G20 Irons feature a new Custom Tuning Port which expands perimeter weighting and increases MOI. The thinner face of the G20 Iron helps position weight to the toe for added forgiveness. The wider sole provides a higher launch angle. Strong lofts and a low center of gravity produce long shots with a high trajectory and maximum forgiveness.

The cavity of Ping G20 Irons features a new soft layer on the back, which helps improve sound, feel and vibrations.

The new i20 irons are expected to be available from mid March.
