Ping i210 Irons Overview

You do however get more forgiveness, slightly higher launch and a bit more spin.
The Ping i210’s retail for $700-$1000.
Mizuno Pro 243 Irons Overview
“The Pro 243s feature single-billet grain flow forging, soft copper underlay and wrap-around sole grind.”
Compared to the i210’s the Pro 243’s have a more compact profile and less offset. They look great – like you can flag it with no problem.
The Pro 243’s launch a bit lower than the i210s and produce lower spin rates.
The chromoly face forging also provides excellent feedback and control. The Mizuno Pro 243’s retail for $1,400.
“There’s just no substituting forged feel and control. The Mizuno Pro 243’s are hands down the better player’s irons.”
