Ping i59 Vs Ping i210 Irons Comparison Review
Over the years, Ping has done a good job of marrying premium performance to everyday playability. While few would argue that they make the most advanced clubs on the market; it would be equally hard to argue that they don’t make some of the most valuable clubs.
Ping does a great job of toeing the line so to speak, between player’s performance irons and forgoing irons. This skill is very much on display in the Ping i210 and the Ping i59 irons which, as luck would have it, we had the pleasure of testing side-by-side.
Ping i59 Irons Overview
The Ping i59 irons are loaded with advanced features. All of these features are packed into a compact head that will look pleasing to any mid to low handicapper.
The Ping i59 irons are player’s performance irons through and through. We were really impressed with the attention to detail that clearly went into the manufacturing of these clubs.
For starters, you have a laser-cut face that allows for very tight shot dispersion throughout the set. That face is set into a forged carbon steel body that lends a very solid feel to all of these irons.
Ping i210 Overview
The Ping i210 irons feature an elastomer insert that also benefits the overall feel of these clubs while at the same time, improving forgiveness.
It should be noted straight away that while the Ping i210’s are also player’s irons; they are a bit larger than the i59’s.
There are some key parallels between these sets though. For instance, both the Ping i210 and the i59 irons have very tight face grooves.
The face grooves on the Ping i210 irons gives them very good spin control around the green and allows the player to check the launch and distance from further approaches – no more sailing the ball clear past the green with either of these iron sets.
The size of the i59 irons will inherently make them more congenial to lower handicap players but the Ping i210 irons do a good job of mimicking the overall performance of the i59’s in different ways.
