Ping’s i20 series of drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids are eye-catching thanks to their matte-black finishes. And the finish is more than just cosmetic.
“The non-glare finish absorbs light, allowing the player to focus without distraction,” Ping Golf Chairman John Solheim said. “Our tour pros are very enthusiastic about the finish – but even more so about the i20s’ performance. Players are able to execute any shot they want with confidence.”
The 460cc driver head, Solheim said, is highly aerodynamic to reduce drag, which generates club head speed and ball velocity for maximizing distance. The head is made from Ti 8-1-1, a lighter, lower-density titanium alloy Solheim said allows for a weight allocation that adds to forgiveness.
Golfers can choose from two stock shafts: the Ping TFC (Tip, Flex, Control) 707D for a low-spin, boring trajectory, or the lighter Project X Black by True Temper, offering mid spin and a higher trajectory.
The stainless steel i20 fairway woods each have more a compact shape Solheim said helps the club head will glide through heavy grass and launch the ball high and straight.
The i20 hybrids also have compact heads as well as low and deep centers of gravity to help launch the ball and land soft.
