Ping i230 Vs Titleist T100 Irons Comparison Overview
The Ping i230 and the Titleist T100 irons were both made with low handicappers in mind.
The T100 is a tour spec’d set of irons that look really sweet at address. The Ping i230 irons also look really sleek behind the ball and were designed to help players gain distance.
These two iron sets are similar in many ways but it’s their differences that you really need to know about. So in the following comparison overview, we will be taking a look at how these iron sets are unique.
Ping i230 Irons Overview
“The Ping i230 irons have a compact shape and an activated elastomer insert.”
These irons have an active feel to them. We suspect that the active feel comes from the elastomer insert. The face plays hotter and feels more responsive than that of the T100 irons.
The soles of the Ping i230 irons are pretty thin but the leading edge has been rounded out. This makes for good turf interaction from pretty much any lie. We really liked the consistent performance from the rough, semi-rough and the fairway.
The spin control in the short irons was also excellent thanks to the MicroMax groove design. However, we did notice that the Ping i230 irons launched higher than the Titleist T100 irons. This isn’t bad for every kind of player but it should be noted by single-digit handicappers.
Titleist T100 Irons Overview
“The T100 irons have a similar profile to the Ping i230’s.”
And like the Ping i230 irons, you get really smooth turf interaction from the T100’s. At address, the top line looks very thin and the sole is all but invisible. The T100 irons felt more consistent than the Ping i230’s; you could set your watch to how they perform.
The launch was lower and so were the spin rates. If you prefer a low, piercing trajectory from your long irons, the T100’s would be a good match for you. Still, the short irons allow you to pop the ball up and land it dead on the green. These irons offer all-around performance.
“It was clear from our testing that the Ping i230’s were player’s distance irons. They yielded better distance and had hotter faces. The Titleist T100 irons were more consistent though and they will be even better than the Ping i230’s if you’re a fast swing speed player.”
