Ping's G10 stainless steel irons are designed with very low toe weighting, which increases the moment of inertia, providing greater consistency and forgiveness. The clubs' centre of gravity lies lower in the club head and away from the club face, which results in higher launching shots with less spin. The irons feature a Custom Turning Point that has been engineered to produce a consistent ball velocity and an elastomer insert that minimises vibrations.

Ping AWT

Ping Ascending Weight Technology shafts are engineered to provide lighter long irons for greater club head speed and a higher ball trajectory.

The AWT shafts are made from steel and are available with soft regular, regular, stiff and extra stiff flex. The soft-R flex shaft has a torque of 2.1 degrees and weighs 96 grams, while the regular-flex shaft has a torque of 2 degrees and weighs 99 grams.

The Ping Z-Z65 is a lightweight steel shaft. It has a high flex point, which is designed for players who prefer a lower trajectory. The stiff-flex shaft is the only option in the Z-Z65 series. It has a torque of 1.6 degrees and weighs 109 grams. The Z-Z65 typically generates a lower ball flight than the AWT stiff-flex shaft.
