New Ping golf club releases in early 2020

Ping G710 Irons

[-]

The Ping G710 is the second generation of players distance irons from Ping, following on from the G700. By combining maraging steel with a stainless steel body, the engineers at Ping have created a metal-wood like face-flex and faster ball speeds. Maraging steel is one of the strongest aero-space grade alloys in the world which not only adds distance but helps launch the ball higher for shots with extreme stopping power!

However, distance is nothing without forgiveness for golfers in this category and the Ping G710 irons come with precisely positioned, high-density tungsten toe and heel weights to increase MOI (resistance to twisting) by 5% compared to the G700. Exceptional forgiveness breeds even more distance and accuracy for mid-to-high handicaps and slower swing speeds.

The tungsten weights also lower the CG to new levels which creates the opportunity to make lofts stronger. The 7-iron in the G710 is 29.5-degrees, but crucially still flies as you'd expect your 7-iron to launch, with the peak height and decent angle to hold greens. For even more distance there is a Power SPec available where the lofts are strengthened further by 2-degrees.

All this game-changing technology is wrapped up in a stunning hydropearl chrome finish with a black PVD coating. This provides hydrophobicity to repel water and improve performance through the turf and in wet conditions. The stealth (black) finish also creates the perception of a smaller, more compact head.

The Ping G710 irons offer maximum playability for mid to high handicap golfers - high launch, MOI, and fast ball speeds offer distance and accuracy to players who need it most! The black hydropearl finish creates a premium players iron look.

Ping Heppler Putters

[-]

If you prefer a firm feel off the putter face, then look no further than the new Heppler family from the engineers at Ping. The firmer feel is a result of extensive machining of the face to ensure it's flat - sounds simple enough! During Ping's extensive testing as part of the development of the range, it was discovered the auditory feedback of the flat metal face increased confidence by providing a distinct impact experience without compromising performance.

Ping also continues to explore the performance benefits of multi-material construction in their new putter line up. Lightweight aluminium combines with steel, strategic shaping and precise weight placement to produce extremely high MOI designs. A range of nine mallets and mid-mallets provide extreme forgiveness and optimal CG for accuracy and consistency. The new Tomcat 14, for example, has the highest MOI in the line and features a 14-dot alignment aid inspired by runway lights.

Unique to the Ping putter families over recent years has been their adjustable shaft technology - however, this has also drawn some criticism around the stability, especially at the longer lengths. Ping has reviewed and re-engineered this for the Heppler family. A stiffer adjustable-length shaft is lightweight and sleekly concealed beneath the grip, allowing you to customise between 32" and 36". One full turn using the adjustment wrench causes a ¼" adjustment up or down, and the grip remains aligned during the process.

Finally, a premium, contrasting copper-and-black finish provides alignment cues and visual interest.

There is a total of nine head designs to choose from, listed below.

Anser 2: Featuring the same heel-toe weighting that helped make the original Anser 2 so popular, the Heppler version will suit a play with a slight arc in their putting stroke.

Fetch: Ping's designers used aluminium around the hole in the middle of the head to further incease MOI. This mallet head will suit a straight back and through putting stroke.

Floki: Mallet putters which suit an arcing stroke are enjoying popularity, and the new Floki head design expands a player's stoke options while boasting the second-highest MOI in the Heppler line thanks to significant steel around the perimeter.

Ketsch: Like all the Heppler mallets, the Ketsch effectively utilises multi-material construction. A trio of lines frame the ball for better alignment in thie model suited to either a slight arc or straight putting stroke.

Piper Armlock: A mid-mallet head shape is the predominant design for armlock putters thanks to their low-CG, high-MOI, heel-toe weighted makeup. Featuring a non-adjustable double-bend shaft attaches heel-side , a 21-inch grip, and 6° standard loft.

Piper C: Centre shafted putters are suited to straight back and though strokes and can perform like a high MOI mallet with the aesthetic of a blade.

Tomcat 14: Runway lights inspired the series of alignment dots in the highest-MOI model in the Heppler family. The back ballasts are aluminium which has been hollowed out and filled with steel to deliver the high MOI— suited to either a slight arcing or straight putting stroke.

Tyne 3: Steel accounts for 2/3 of the weight of this head design thanks to a thick back flange which results in a lower, much deeper CG and a higher MOI. The Tyne 3 suits an arcing stroke.

ZB 3: To achieve a high MOI in a strong-arc putter a larger section of the cavity was carved out and replaced with large heel-toe weights. The alignment dot is a product of Ping's continued research showing this cue makes aiming easier for strong-arc players.
