PING i530 Irons

If you desire a compact, blade-style head and your primary goal is more distance, the new i530 is engineered to launch the ball higher and farther with the consistency and predictability to hit shots closer to the hole. Distance gains come from multiple sources including a highly flexible forged face in a hollow-body design that will add yards with tighter dispersion.

TECHNOLOGY

Forged Face

Like our previous player’s distance designs, a forged, highly flexible maraging steel C300 face is precisely welded to the 17-4 stainless steel hollow body, creating bending that produces big distance gains.

Hollow Body Design

The hollow body allows for face bending that generates faster ball speeds and greater distance. An arcing sole cascade accentuates flexing and combines with distance-optimized lofts to ensure max height with stopping power on greens.

Confidence Inspiring

Blade enthusiasts will appreciate the compact head’s thin top line, narrow sole and shallow face height. The clean, premium look owes in part to a new machining technique that thins the back wall, saving weight to help with forgiveness and tighten dispersion.

More Grooves, Spin

Precision-milled MicroMax grooves (tighter spacing, more grooves) ensure consistent launch and spin results and score-lowering performance from all conditions.

Power With Feel

A lower CG is more aligned with where impact occurs, and a polymer precisely placed in the head improves feel and sound while maximizing face bending and ball speed. Tungsten toe screw and shaft tip weights for swingweight fine-tuning.

Custom-Fit Shafts

A variety of shafts are available, including the mid-launching AWT 2.0, and the PING ALTA J CB, which delivers a mid-to-high launch with stability and a consistent feel.

NOTES

  • These are design specifications that may vary due to manufacturing tolerances.
  • Lie angle is based on Black Colour Code at standard length.
  • Power Spec Loft is a fitting option for players looking to boost their iron distance or decrease spin to hit a desired trajectory window. This custom-designed loft configuration delivers a calculated power boost without sacrificing the integrity of the club’s design.
  • Retro Spec Loft is a fitting option if you’re less concerned with overall distance and more with precision and a higher trajectory for more stopping power. This loft configuration yields functional distance gaps for utilizing a 3-wedge setup or a more classic loft spec.
  • Club bounce angles will vary slightly if ordered with non-standard loft specs.
  • Standard swingweights for graphite-shafted clubs are 2 to 3 points lighter than shown, depending on shaft flex.
  • Achievable swingweights depend on shaft, length and grip combinations.
  • Available in left- and right-handed models.

NOTES

  • Shaft weights listed are based on the trimmed length of a 7-iron and may not match the specs on the shaft manufacturer’s websites.

PING offers a variety of shaft flexes in steel and graphite to meet your needs and preferences. Selecting the proper shaft flex for your swing will help you get the most distance and accuracy from every shot. Generally, players with faster swing speeds require stiffer shafts to keep the ball trajectory lower, while players with slower swing speeds will require more-flexible shafts to produce a higher ball trajectory. The choice of steel or graphite shafts is usually based on preferences for weight and/or feel. Players seeking a lighter overall weight and/or a softer feel in their irons may prefer graphite shafts, while players who prefer a standard-weight club with a firmer feel may prefer steel shafts. We recommend that you get fit for the shaft that allows you to play your best golf. Whether that’s a softer, lighter shaft with a higher launch or a heavier, stiffer shaft with a lower trajectory, a PING Certified Club Fitter can help you find the shaft that brings consistency to your game.

PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight. PING colour-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip colour code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
