Longer distance comes from precision-engineered loft and club length progressions paired with wide soles and a deep center of gravity. The Custom Tuning Port reinforces the thinner face to increase ball velocity for greater distance and higher ball flights for stopping power. The hybrids offer progressive CG locations, a deep profile and a wide sole to blend with the irons for proper distance gapping and trajectories.

  • Integrated CTP Design

    The Custom Tuning Port connects to the sole, which reinforces the hotter, thinner face. This increases ball speed and consistency across the face. It is made from a soft elastomer to provide a solid feel and sound.

  • Wide Soles

    Wide soles position the CG low and back, which sends the ball high in the air with increased forgiveness, generating distance and accuracy even on off-center strikes.

  • Weighted for Forgiveness

    Extreme internal heel-and-toe weighting yields high inertia for greater forgiveness and accuracy from the 17-4 stainless steel head.

PING offers a variety of shaft flexes in steel and graphite to meet every golfer's 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.

GRIPS

GRIPCOLOR CODEDESCRIPTION
360 ID8
The 360 ID8 grip utilizes all the same features as the ID8, but is a round grip to function with drivers and fairway woods featuring PING's adjustable loft technology.
360 ID8 Full Cord
The 360 ID8 Full Cord is a round grip designed to function with drivers and fairway woods featuring PING's adjustable loft technology. It features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction, a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel, and soft cord to enhance traction.

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 color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color 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.

In the 17-4 stainless steel irons, longer distance comes from precision-engineered loft and club length progressions scientifically paired with wide, forgiving sole designs that yield a deep Center of Gravity. The sole geometry positions the CG low and back for higher maximum height while helping the sole glide through the turf for increased forgiveness. The Custom Tuning Port integrates with the sole, which reinforces the thinner face to increase ball velocity for greater distance and maximum height. Made of soft elastomer, the CTP produces a solid feel, an attribute that is often sacrificed in thin-faced irons.

The hybrids have a deeper head profile and a wide sole to blend seamlessly with the irons for proper distance gapping and trajectories. The hybrids' CG locations are progressive – farther back in the lower-lofted heads to promote higher launch; they are lower and more forward in the higher-lofted options to reduce spin. Extreme internal heel-and-toe weighting raises the MOI, so you don’t always have to hit it perfectly to get maximum performance.
