Ping i230 Vs Titleist T150 Irons Comparison Overview

Ping i230 Vs Titleist T150 Irons

Traditionally, if you see the letter “G” in the title  of a Ping golf club, you know that it’s designed for higher handicap players.

In fact, the Ping G series has churned out some of the best game improvement clubs ever.

And when you see the letter “i” in the title, you are dealing with a club designed for lower handicappers.

The Ping i230 irons look excellent; but can a company that is known for game improvement clubs really produce a worthwhile players iron? I tested the Ping i230 irons against the Titleist T150’s to find out.

Ping i230 Irons Overview

Ping i230 Irons

“The Ping i230 irons have a compact look at address. The blade isn’t too long and the face depth is moderate.”

However, when I looked down at the Titleist T150’s and the Ping i230’s side by side, I could clearly see that the i230’s had wider top lines. But they still look very much like pleasing players irons.

The i230 irons feature extreme perimeter tungsten weighting in the toe and shaft tip to enhance forgiveness. They also feature a rounded leading edge to improve turf interaction.

I found the i230 irons to be workable. I could easily shape my shot with the long and short irons.

And I was getting really tight dispersion out of them as well. So the i230’s certainly held their own during my test session with them.

Titleist T150 Irons Overview

“The Titleist T150 irons are forged and also have a refined leading and trailing edge.”

The Titleist T150 irons feel incredibly smooth and fast through the turf. Even in the semi-rough, I was making clean, consistent contact. At address, they frame the ball very well.

The first significant difference I noticed between the Titleist T150’s and Ping i230’s was feel. The Titleist T150’s have a softer feel that is more in-line with players irons. The second difference I noticed was distance.

The Titleist T150 irons have slightly stronger lofts than the i230’s so they played a bit longer for me. Both irons were very workable though.

“The Ping i230’s impressed me. But the Titleist T150’s were still the superior players irons. They play longer and offer a feel that is more indicative of traditional players irons.

But these differences aren’t vast. There isn’t a wide chasm between these irons in terms of performance. Both are good choices for single-digit handicappers.”

Ping i230 Irons First Impressions

First impressions of the i230’s is that they are definitely players irons.

They have small compact heads which allow players to shape their shots and hit with supreme accuracy.

Higher handicap players won’t be able to hit well at all with these irons but the better players should be hitting them with consistency and tight dispersion.

In terms of improvement from the i210’s, they are longer and the long irons are more compact and player friendly.

The 5 piece construction and the elastomer allow for improved sound and feel with the weight savings used to lower the COG and increase the MOI meaning players should be hitting longer shots with increased workability.

The 4 piece Cavity Badge, Hydropearl finish, Micromax grooves and tungsten weight all improve the forgiveness, control, sound and feel that players can achieve.

Titleist T150 – First Impressions

The first thing we noticed about the T150 was the classy, refined look that we are used to in Titleist irons.

The blades have a compact blade length and minimal offset but the wider soles offer more confidence at address.

The refined muscle channel is also immediately noticeable, adding to the power and distance of the irons.

You may not notice the CNC Precision milled grooves or the Tungsten weighting in the toe and the heel but you will definitely notice and get to know them as your strike your irons.

Overall, you are going to get the tour refined shaping with an extra bit of power and forgiveness, perfect for those perhaps trying out forged players irons for the first time.

Who Are The T150 Irons For

The T150 are for low handicappers who want more distance and forgiveness than what is on offer with the T100’s.

Similar in blade length but with thicker soles and enhanced tungsten weighting offers tour like performance with more distance for slower swing speeds and more forgiveness for the top players who lack consistency.

The one thing that may put golfers off is the higher price point of the irons in today’s game.

Titleist T Series Family Of Irons

The third iteration of the T series is upon us in 2023. The T100 are the most player friendly and they get steadily longer and more forgiving as you move through the family up towards the Game improvement irons like the T300’s.
