    D0 swing weight and 210s? Plus,two gap wedges? Very odd setup. Happy for him, but this could be my bag on a random round.

    Westwood is a true PingMan tour pro. His favorite Pings were Zing2s. He held on to them even though Ping came up with new models. Finally he put the Zings away as is bagging the i210s.

    So the Fetch putter everyone was making fun of when it came out last month already has a Euro Tour Rolex Series win. A lot of people who’ve actually tried it and reviewed it like it as well.

Titleist to release Vokey SM7 Wedges in Slate Blue finish

Published

on

Vokey-SM7-Slate-Blue

Titleist has announced that its Vokey SM7 wedges are to be released in a Slate Blue finish from January 31.

The new finish on the SM7 Slate Blue wedges is applied like a standard PVD finish, but according to the company, the finish contains a unique material and involves a time-intensive process, the combination of which provides a finish that will possess maximum durability.

Speaking on the addition of the State Blue finish to the SM7 wedge range, master craftsman Bob Vokey stated

“Very often wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last. At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

As with all of the Vokey SM7 range, the State Blue is available in 23 loft, bounce, and grind options for both right and left-handers.

The stock set-up for the Vokey SM7 State Blue features a Nippon Modus3 125 shaft and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi-Compound Black Grip. However, the wedges will also be available for customization on Vokey.com.

The Vokey SM7 State Blue hits retail stores on January 31 and will cost $199.99.

on

Srixon Z-Forged irons, described by the company as being “designed for the ultimate ball-strikers yet engineered to perform,” are to hit retail stores on February 1.

The new release from Srixon feature two sharp lines at the back of the club, one from the toe and one from the heel, forming its double curve design which aims to provide golfers with a soft feel in a crisp, explosive profile.

New Ping G410 irons: “The most forgiving iron of its size”

Published

on

Ping has unveiled its new G410 Irons, the company’s latest game-improvement model, featuring less offset and a higher MOI compared to any of their previous models.

These 2019 Ping irons feature a face and cavity structure that aims to deliver faster ball speeds while saving weight to expand the perimeter weighting. The additional weight savings are re-distributed to the toe and hosel to achieve an 8% increase in the moment of inertia (MOI), which is designed to offer golfers more forgiveness and consistency.

The irons feature a more flexible and free moving face, achieved by de-coupling the weighting structure from the face to create a larger flexing zone. The larger flexing zone is designed to act as a hinge to launch the ball faster and higher with consistency, allowing golfers to take less club into the green.

Speaking on the companies new G410 Irons, Ping President John K. Solheim, said

“In the G410 iron, our engineers challenged the idea that you can’t make an iron smaller and increase the forgiveness at the same time. They’ve developed a clean, highly appealing design with less offset and a significantly higher MOI when compared to the G400 iron.

“It’s the most forgiving iron of its size. It will appeal to a very wide range of golfers as it produces faster ball speeds, maximum forgiveness and amazing feel with a pleasing appearance — all the attributes they need to hit their iron shots higher, farther and straighter.”

The Ping G410 rrons contain a slightly shorter blade length and 10% less offset compared to the G400 iron, and the clubs Hydropearl 2.0 finish aims to contribute towards smooth turf interaction. While the full-cavity, co-molded aluminum and elastomer badge of the new irons from Ping is designed to deliver players with a more satisfying sound and greater overall feel.

The same geometry used on the Glide 2.0 wedge series, has been utilized in the G410 wedges (PW, UW, SW and LW). The wedges contain a sharp edge radius which aims to increase interaction with the cover of the ball at impact, creating greater friction, resulting in improved spin and trajectory control.

Concerning Ping’s new high-spin wedges, Solheim stated

“The fully machined grooves on all four wedges are an example of the added detail we’ve engineered into the G410 irons. For players who want a consistent look and feel throughout their set, they can now enjoy much higher spin and control in their scoring clubs along with all the other performance benefits of the iron’s technology.”
