The Ping G10 Iron Review

Why should you consider the Ping G10 irons? Firstly, they are not new. They are not the latest in the ever-evolving world of high-tech design. There is a good reason for that, why change what’s working?

The Ping G10 irons are quite a few years old now but they still offer plenty of game-improvement benefits to many golfers out there. It is a tribute to Ping’s high-held reputation that this club continues to remain so popular.

This club has set the standard that others follow. The competition has tweaked the design of their clubs and achieved only minor improvements.

As good as they are and despite their remaining popularity, there is always bad with the good.

We need to be careful not to make too big a change, and tackle something we can’t handle. I once tried to hit some “players” clubs, blades that many of the professionals use, and found them quite difficult to control. A mid-handicapper should graduate through the more high-tech cavity clubs that offer more forgiveness.

With the correct clubs, you can continue to grow your game and improve your handicap to single figures. There are many professionals on the circuit who use cavity irons, so don’t be in too much of a hurry to go to blades.

The Ping G10 irons are ideal for mid to higher handicap golfers, but not recommended for beginners nor for very low handicap players.

Alternatives that beginners might consider are the Callaway Strata Ultimate or Wilson Ultra complete sets. These clubs are ideal for beginners to get into the game and are good value for money.

We want clubs that are user-friendly, what’s known as game improvement irons. They have to carry a well reputable brand name with a proven track record. They need to “look” good in the bag, and they need to be not too heavy on the pocket.

Ping G10 Golf Iron

New Ping G10 Golf Iron Set 4-9 PW SW (8 Clubs Set) RH Steel Regular Flex, Black Dot - All Standard

Pros:

  • Good lift-off, easy to launch.
  • Solid pure feel.
  • Super forgiving.
  • Classy great looking clubs.
  • Affordable, easy on the pocket.

Cons:

  • Too straight, lack workability.
  • It will not suit the purist.
  • Don’t have all the latest high-tech innovations.

Features and benefits:

  • Stainless steel construction

The Ping G10 club head is manufactured from 17-4 Stainless steel and the club head tends to be larger than usual. Some players have found this a bit off-putting but reported that it did not take long to adjust. Personally, I felt it gave a higher degree of confidence while setting up over the ball.

The cavity in the G10 has been made bigger allowing the weight to be moved further back and lower down to provide more forgiveness. Creating the cavity and moving the weight to the perimeter of the club face increases the MOI (Moment of Inertia) the technology that helps players make massive improvements to their game.

This quality, forgiveness, is a feature throughout the whole set making these clubs easy to hit, with consistent direction and good distance.

A further benefit is that even shots that are off-center, or missing the sweet spot, will still go fairly straight to your target area although you might forfeit some distance.

The G10 head also features an additional toe weight and a wider sole greatly enhancing turf interaction, feel, and consistency.

The standard set makeup is: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, PW. Also available is 2, GW, SW, LW.

1. Tuning Port Insert

As the cavity is enlarged the face becomes thinner and needs to be reinforced and stabilized. This is achieved by the introduction of the CTP (Custom Tuning Port). The benefit of the CTP insert is to enhance the “feel” or feedback that you get from the cast head-on impact. The reinforced club face makes it “super-hot” and gives you the increased distance.

2. Ascending Weight Technology

Ping uses longer standard steel shafts which are lighter than the shorter iron shafts. The ascending weight starts with the heaviest shafts in the wedge becoming progressively lighter, with the lightest found in the driver.

These graduated shaft weights along with the wider sole, as previously mentioned, greatly enhance turf interaction. The greatest benefit is the consistency that this technology provides and the resulting control and confidence that the player will experience.

Shaft flex options:  Light, Regular, Stiff, and X Stiff, also available with graphite shafts.

3. Custom Fitting

The most popular feature, and reason for the growth of popularity of the Ping G10 brand, is the custom fitting service. Simply put, we are all individuals and no two people have the same height, weight, grip, strength, and swing speed. It stands to reason then that we should not all have the same clubs and that custom fitting would make a huge difference.

Ping has revolutionized the industry through this technology and the use of the PING nFlight Technology analysis tool.

The player’s swing is analyzed to determine all the specifications that the clubs should have. From the result, the requirements for spin rate, trajectory, and shot shape can be determined and the benefit is to enhance the player’s iron distance, control levels, and consistency.

4. Offsets

The high degree of game-improvement features has a negative effect as we saw in the cons. The biggest drawback is the loss of control, making it difficult to shape the ball, to either fade or draw. In an attempt to compensate for this to some degree Ping G10 irons pay close attention to the offsets.

The offset on the long irons is optimized in order to make them more forgiving, while the offset is reduced on the short irons to give them more playability.

5. Pure and solid feel

Most important for the mid handicap player is confidence. The Ping G10 with the larger than average head, gives a very solid and powerful feel when striking the ball. The forgiveness is exceptional and if you mishit the ball you might lose some distance but should not be too heavily penalized on the direction.

Alternatives

There are a couple of very competent and user-friendly alternatives on the market that can stand next to the Ping G10.

The TaylorMade SIM Max OS is a good choice and features a high degree of forgiveness. The SIM stands for Speed in Motion and OS is out size. This SIM shifts the focus more towards shaping and aerodynamics, which in turn might trade off some of the directional accuracy. To compensate the size of the club head was increased to restore the forgiveness quality.

This club is best suited to the high handicap player and compared to the Ping G10 is much bulkier, has a harder shape and the sound and feel are not too impressive. This is a bit heavy on the pocket.

The Wilson D7 is a highly competitive golf club in the game improvement range and with the D7 Wilson has really come to the fore. They sport a new cleaned up chrome face, a thinner top line, more power holes in the sole of the longer clubs. Generally, the feel is better on the shorter irons and but seems to be not as strong on the long irons.

A very good alternative, especially for mid to high handicappers, with an equally competitive price tag.

Callaway is another big brand name and their Mavrik Max would feature in this category. Packed with state of the art technology they feature the following:

Flash Face Cup Technology creating boosted ball speed and increased spin robustness.

Tungsten Energy Core promotes optimal launch and ball flight with strong lofts and land angles.

Urethane Microspheres to absorb unwanted vibrations and enhance feel.

With all this said there are some cons, they look a bit chunky, distance control is difficult, it’s hard to work the ball, and it is pricey.

Final thoughts

The Ping G10 is not the latest high tech golf club on the market, it does not feature all the new AI groundbreaking discoveries, but it is a tried and tested product which despite being a few years old still more than holds up to the competition.

The Ping G10 gives you great distance, excellent forgiveness, a good feel, very good durability and beats the rest on price.

If you haven’t taken these for a test drive, why not?

     I have recently purchased these irons, and wow, they are fantastic!. I have only played a couple of 9 hole Par 3 rounds but these clubs have improved my distance, accuracy and height. At this stage in my golfing life, I couldn't have asked for more. It was well worth the 3 hours i spent in American golf trying out several different clubs.

  • By phil craig

    took delivery of my g10's last week after 6months of playing with g2's which were brilliant clubs, helping me reduce my handicap from 23 on 5th april to 16 today. im hoping the g10's will help me now down to that magical single figures. after only one round with the g10's ive found the long irons so much easier to hit. i always left the 3/4/5 irons out of the bag in favour of rescues. but after hitting well on the range i decided to take out the full set and i wasnt disappointed. im not a big hitter anyway so it was accuracy more than distance i was looking for. the g10's didnt let me down even in very windy conditions. id fully recommend the g10's to everyone. happy golfing :-)

    Managed to win these in a TodaysGolfer competition. Got them custom fitted and ended up with regular flex shafts, 1 degree upright lie angle, and slightly larger grips. Took 6 days for delivery and loving them. Only been playing for 6 months and have noticed such a difference. When I hit them well they are dead straight and really good distance. When I mis-hit, as I'm prone to do, The distance is still good and it still goes in the general direction I was aiming in. Example, was playing today, in the rough to the right of the 18th fairway, 160yards to the pin, didn't get underneath at all, hit the ball with the heel and still ended up 8 inches from the pin. Complete fluck for that shot but would never have happened with the Callaway X-tours that I was playing with before, great clubs but not good for a new player. Loving these clubs, really like the look fo them and would recomend them for any new player.

    After being lucky enough to have had 5 years at st andrews uni, I'm afraid I can't agree with dougie75 as I always got excellent service in St Andrews. However it's the clubs we're here to read about and I have to say these are the best clubs I have ever owned. Yes they aren't as easy to shape the ball with as some irons, but other than that they are faultless. They are good from every lie, including divots, Ping have excellent customer service and the fact you can get the wedges fitted too makes a massive difference. This is my first set of Pings and I will have these for years even though my handicap is now at 12. Thanks to these clubs I've dropped 4 shots in 4 months just because I'm hitting more greens in regulation.

  • By EBPJunior

    Having had my G5s stolen last summer I went out and ended up buying these and having them fitted. Oddly where my G5s went right to left, these go left to right, but never mind! The irons are also about half a club shorter in ball distance but feel great and I feel confident in knowing where I'm putting the ball.  The utility is a gem, a crisp crack as club on ball and it cuts through light rough.  Ball flight is true and now that I'm getting used to it off the tee it's a great go to club.  The driver is very forgiving of any off centre hit and when everything aligns perfectly the ball goes a long long way; this from a skinny boy not an 18 st monster! If you haven't bought them; go out and buy them.

  • By Mr Hook

    i bought the Ping G10 irons after being blown away with the G10 driver, went and got fitted for them took just short of 2 weeks for delivery but was it worth the wait. irons are so forgiving and look good behind the ball, instill a great deal of confidence when stood over the ball. i had Callaway X20's but imo these clubs surpass the X20's by a long way. i bought 4 - Pw but think i will be buying a 3 iron too when funds allow. all in all great clubs

  • By nackanut

    find the new g10s very forgiving the large head instills confidence when setting up to the ball, these are the first good set of clubs ive bought after starting with a starter set and the custom fitting has helped giving a better suited lie angle. id recommend these to any mid to high handicapper looking to drop shots off their handicap

  • By chris ware

    sit lovely behind the ball and very easy to control in wet or dry conditions a great asset to my goal of getting to scratch or less

  • By thejinx

    These clubs are excellent. Forgiving on mishits, wide sole helps stop fat shots, nicly weighted. Durable and glare free finish to club heads. Great looks and excellent ping quality. Nice feel from club when striking the ball, giving the ball a good high launch angle. If your in the market for a new set of clubs i recommend you give them a demo before making your decision to buy any of the others on the market. I bought the 5-SW and bought the 24 degree hybrid to replace the long irons as i hit the hybrid better than the long irons. I think they will be very popular with any golfer with 10-28 handicap.

  • By forde55

    I just bought the G10's Had my G2's for years and loved them ,but the new 10's are great.I do agree however the golf marketing world has become like the rag trade

  • By dougie75

    Having not been overly impressed with the fitting[st andrews] or delivery times ,i have to admit these irons far surpass the callaway x18s they replaced[not fitted i hasten to add].They might appear a bit chunky,but are very easy to hit and gave me a more than a few biride oppurtunities.so for now ,i love them

Ping G10 Irons Review: Are These Irons Worth a Look?

There is no denying the fact that PING has produced some of the most incredible and user-friendly irons over the years. Most of these irons have eventually made their way into a majority of golfers’ bags. The best part about this golf equipment manufacturer is that their price tags are truly worth the product.

Keeping PING’s high-held reputation in mind, it doesn’t come as a surprise that one of its oldest products, the Ping G10 Irons, is still so popular. They are quite a few years old now, and they aren’t one of those ‘latest and greatest’ iron sets that are currently being made, yet you will find them in a lot of people’s golf bags. The main reason for this is probably how they don’t burn a hole in your pocket, and also that they still offer some great game-improvement technology to all the golfers out there.

  • Faster ball speed is consistent across the face, delivering longer, straighter results, even on off-center hits

Overview of the Ping G10 Irons

The Ping G10 Irons have primarily been designed to take the entire concept of ‘game-improvement’ to a whole new level. They are the prime example of ‘extreme-weight perimeter,’ a concept that has significantly revolutionized overtime. It basically involves transferring some of the weight of the club heads into the perimeter of the irons in order to achieve the optimal MOI (moment of inertia). This design innovation has really helped golfers make massive improvements to their game.

The Ping G10 Irons have been hailed as ‘true winners,’ given how they are so forgiving, have such solid construction, and are so easy to hit.

These irons employ upgraded versions of the highly-forgiving technology from the previous models that make them quite a distance-enhancing and an incredibly straight set of irons. This suggests that the Ping G10 Irons are perfect for high handicap players who are looking to have some fun out on the golf course and wish to save a whole lot of strokes.  If your handicap is 10 or higher, you are probably going to love using these irons while you’re out on the course.

Ping G10 Iron Pros

The Ping G10 Irons have a plethora of benefits to offer to all golfers. It is due to this very reason that these irons are so popular even after so many years. These irons have quite prominent and wide soles that give them immense power and efficiency on the course. The size of the sole allows the irons to work really hard to help golfers get their launch as high as they possibly can. They have a deepened and a highly enlarged head cavity that greatly reduces the chances of missed shots.

Take a look at some of the key benefits that make these irons such a favorite among most golfers.

  • Very classy and good-looking design
  • Excellent value for money
  • Easy on the pockets
  • Super forgiving on the golf course
  • A very solid and pure feel
  • They are super easy to launch

Ping G10 Iron Cons

As with any other golf club set, the Ping G10 Irons also have a few disadvantages. The fact that it has been so many years since their launch suggests that they don’t contain all the features and specifications that you would typically find in a more recent and advanced golf set.

The workability of these irons has generated a big question mark, primarily because they offer very little control to the player. We can assume from this that these irons are not likely to appeal to purists who are looking to exercise great control over their shots.

  • They are not as competent as the newer club irons
  • They offer little control to their users

Stainless Steel Construction

The Ping G10 Irons consists of a large stainless steel head that further holds a heavy toe weight. This particular construction has been designed to reach the optimum moment of inertia in order to make the club stable and balanced throughout the whole playing session.

Custom Tuning Port Insert

These irons come with a CTP (Custom Tuning Port) that helps maintain the stability of the thinner face of these clubs. The port insert delivers a great feel on impact to the club for an efficient cast head. It also reinforces the clubface by making the hitting area super hot in order to give the player increased distance.

Ascending Weight Technology

This is one of PING’s popular technologies. It makes use of longer standard steel shafts. These long shafts are lighter than the shorter iron shafts. This helps the Ping G10 Irons provide players with consistent weight progression from the lightest shaft in a golf bag, the driver, through to the heaviest shafts, which are the wedges. This, coupled with their wide sole, greatly enhances turf interaction. All these features together give these clubs excellent consistency, which, in turn, provides a greater amount of control to the golfer.

Custom Fitting Service

One of the major reasons why the Ping G10 Irons have gained so much popularity over the years is that these clubs come with custom fitting services. The underlying notion here is that no two golfers have the same swing so there is no reason why they should have the same clubs.

PING is one of the revolutionists of the golf club industry since it basically introduced the whole concept of each golfer having custom-fit clubs that are made according to their swing type. Following that idea, the Ping G10 Irons use the PING nFlight Technology that analyzes golfers’ swings and then determines all the specifications their clubs should contain, such as spin rates, shot shape, trajectory, etc. The main objective of this feature is to enhance the player’s consistency, iron distance, and control levels.

Attention to Offsets

Another notable feature of the Ping G10 Irons is that they pay very close attention to their offsets. These irons have varying offsets according to their sizes. The long irons consist of an optimized amount of offset in order to make them more forgiving for the player. On the other hand, the short irons have a reduced amount of offset in order to enhance the clubs’ playability. This helps increase the workability of these irons and allows the golfer to have a greater amount of control over them.

Solid and Pure Feel

When it comes to iron clubs, one of their must-have features includes a good and solid feel. The Ping G10 Irons are ideal in that regard because when you strike the ball with these irons, the feel is very powerful. Since these clubs are exceptionally forgiving, off-center hits don’t end up penalizing you. While you might lose some distance when you throw a mis-hit ball, it is likely to fly straight down toward your target line.

Our Final Thoughts

The Ping G10 Irons are truly an excellent option for any mid-high handicap golfer. They contain some of the most impressive features, despite being so many years old. Although these irons aren’t anything special in terms of appearance and looks, their standard of hitting shots is extraordinary. This is primarily due to the high levels of ‘forgiveness’ offered by these clubs that makes them very easy to hit and also because you can get a good distance with them even on off-center hits.

On top of that, these clubs are so reasonable and inexpensive that you ought to try them out if you haven’t already. The cherry on top of the cake is that these clubs are a Golf Digest Hot List gold medal winner, so you can imagine how great they are!
