PING, a leading golf club manufacturer, has just released a new design, the PING i525 Golf Club. The company has engineered this club with a forged, maraging-steel face which significantly increases speed and distance while providing a pleasing feel and sound. All of this is packaged in a compact, players-style model perimeter weighted to elevate forgiveness and deliver long, towering shots that hit and hold the green.
The maraging steel used in the face of the club is known for its strength. The variable-thickness of the steel allows for a thinner, more dynamic face structure with an internal sole undercut in the 17-4 stainless steel body to increase flexing to launch shots faster and higher with predictability. The club’s Extreme Weighting feature, which uses tungsten toe and shaft tip weights combined with a tiered, dynamic face structure, expands the perimeter weighting while preserving ball speed through greater face deflection for added distance and improved accuracy.
One of the key features of the PING i525 is its pleasing sound and feel. The club has a polymer that is precisely injected onto the inside of the face to improve feel and sound without interfering with face deflection, the source of its increased ball speed. Additionally, the club’s Micromax Grooves, which are a precision-milled groove pattern that allows for tighter spacing and a geometry that results in an average of four extra grooves to reduce fliers in the short irons and preserve spin in the long irons for greater consistency.
The PING i525’s preferred styling is a players-style blade length and offset with a modest topline, creating a clean, compact profile favored by discerning players. The hydropearl 2.0 finish repels water to ensure predictable, consistent performance from wet and dry conditions. In terms of shafts, the club comes with the Project X IO steel shaft, which is easy to load and lightweight, delivering medium trajectory and spin, a good fit for players with a moderate swing tempo. Another option is the PING Alta CB Slate graphite, which delivers high launch with stability and a consistent feel. PING offers a variety of shaft flexes in steel and graphite to meet the needs and preferences of golfers. Additionally, the company offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences.
In conclusion, the PING i525 offers golfers a powerful new design that has been engineered to significantly increase speed and distance while providing a pleasing feel and sound. The club’s compact, players-style model perimeter weighting elevates forgiveness and delivers long, towering shots that hit and hold the green. The club’s micromax grooves, pleasing sound and feel, and hydropearl 2.0 finish are additional features that make this club a top choice for discerning golfers.
