New iBlade iron from PING

With an emphasis on providing buttery feel with maximum forgiveness, PING has introduced the iBlade iron – the company’s most workable blade-style iron to date.

Combining a thin top rail, minimal offset, a straight leading edge and a sharp high toe, the iBlade’s simple head shape and clean aesthetics provide a compact look that inspires confidence at address.

Engineered from soft, 431 stainless steel, a higher strength-to-weight ratio provides increased forgiveness, while an eye-catching, hydropearl chrome finish repels water for more control. Other iBlade innovations include an improved elastomer insert for improved feel and sound at impact, and a thin, high-speed face for increased ball speeds and higher trajectories. Better players will also benefit from refined bounce angles which provide a more workable sole, as well as a precision-milled face with tour-proven groove specifications.

The iBlade has received immediate tour validation, with PING staffers Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen among those putting the new iron into play. Available in golf shops later this month, orders can be made from the start of August.
