We felt the Ping i10 irons sat a little uneasily as part of the range but we’re delighted to see that the Ping i15 now have their own niche by offering the performance of the S57’s combined with the forgiveness of the G10 range.
When we tried the Ping i15 irons out we immediately noticed that the thicker top line and larger head on the longer irons gave you more confidence at address than the i10s.
We liked the larger progressive head in the long irons, but it would have been nice to see this extended to the short irons, which are the same size as the i10s and a little on the small side for us.
We would recommend augmenting the set with Ping Tour W wedges, particularly if you find the size of the i15 wedge too small. Performance wise the Ping i15 irons were great with a strong penetrating flight and they did seem to go a little further than the equivalent G15 iron.
This could be due to the lower trajectory from these irons and the 1 degree stronger lofts in the shorter irons. Unlike other irons we have tried, we didn’t notice the tungsten weight in the toe, but it still did its job to increase the forgiveness and ombined well with the full cavity badge in the back of the clubhead to give great feel.
