The i200 irons replace Ping’s i-E1 model and cater for the better player seeking forgiveness and workability. With the i200, Ping have stepped up their game and overhauled technologies. It’s no surprise to us that the model name is not i-E2 as originally speculated. The i200 enters the market as a very unique and classic Ping iron. As always, the i200 features the CTP (Custom Tuning Port) which allows engineers to place weight exactly where it’s needed, maximising launch and forgiveness. The CTP works hand in hand with the new metal material to give you incredible feedback. It honestly feels like a forged iron! The i200 has a new hydro-pearl fi nish which provides a classic look but also repels water from the clubhead enhancing contact with the ball. Ping have also introduced a muscle-stabilising bar, which combines with the CTP cavity to greatly enhance stability and forgiveness in such a compact head. There is a “power-spec” option, ideal for slightly weaker players, which is the same in every aspect except for a 1.5 degree stronger loft across the set. When compared to the i-E1, it’s diffi cult to believe that these irons are not designed for distance but more for workability and accuracy. In testing, we found the i200 to be superior to the i-E1 in every aspect. It was longer, more stable and produced more consistent fl ight. With 5 custom shafts to choose from and their renowned colour code system, they have catered for as many lower handicap golfers as possible. We recommend this for lower handicap players. Despite all the forgiveness technologies, it remains a semi-bladed iron.
The Ping i200 Steel Irons features a flow from high launching, distance long irons to compact, shot shaping short irons for maximum versatility.
