I’ve always loved the look and feel of PING irons. As a golfer who struggles to break 100, PING has always done a remarkable job at marketing their game-improvement irons.
I’ve played with several different sets of PING’s going back through the years. The Rapture irons, i15 irons and G20’s are just a few of the sets I’ve been particularly fond of. I even know a few guys who still play with the old PING Eye 2 set.
At the 2015 New Jersey Golf Show, the PING G30’s particularly caught my eye as a set I was really looking forward to hitting on the demo range. An upgrade from the G25’s, the G30’s have an increased bounce and steeper trailing edge to really improve versatility and shot shaping. The longer blade lengths also give the irons a greater sweet spot, a signature of PING game-improvement irons.
I hit about half a dozen shots with the G30’s as you can see in the video below:
Overall, the PING G30 irons definitely lived up to my expectations. They are not the sexiest set of irons (those are the PING S55’s), but game-improvement irons rarely are. But these clubs definitely do the job. They felt great to hit and I made solid contact on every shot. That’s really all that matters when you’re in the market for a game-improvement set.
The only downside if you’re looking to invest in the G30’s might be the price. Even if you get a good deal on them, you’re likely going to shell out at least $700-900 dollars for a set. The going rate at TGW.com is $899.99.
I currently play with a set of TaylorMade Burner 2.0 irons, which are a few years old now. I’m not ready to make a switch just yet, but when I do, the PING G30’s will definitely be a set I take a long hard look at.
Overall Rating: 4/5
