PING G400 Irons

Before UW grad and PING founder Karsten Solheim retired from the company he founded 50 years ago, he told his young engineers to “follow the physics.”

In the decades since, there might be no better example of that than the new G400 irons, which utilize a combination of technologies to produce ball flights that are longer, straighter and higher than any previous PING iron — where you might typically hit a six-iron, you could potentially get the same distance from a G400 seven-iron, but with the height and precision of an eight-iron.

That’s accomplished through PING’s COR-Eye technology — resulting in a hotter face — and a new toprail undercut cavity, which allows the face to flex more than 18 percent more than previous PING irons, producing a catapult effect that launches the ball both higher and farther.

A new low-friction finish improves turf interaction as well, while a concealed tuning port allows weight to be distributed to the perimeter of the face for increased forgiveness.

We never did all that well in physics class, but that’s a formula even we can understand.
