Ping Launches i25 Driver

Produced for players of all abilities, the new, multimaterial i25 driver from Ping is designed to reduce spin while increasing the launch angle for better distance and accuracy. Company officials say they use a lighter density titanium in the body of the clubhead in an effort to save weight and improve center of gravity for greater distance and moment of inertia for enhanced forgiveness. And they join that body to a variable thickness titanium face that is designed to bolster ball speed, which by extension also should add length.
In addition, high-density tungsten sole weights are made to lower the CG even more, for a latter ball light
and landing angle, which should improve roll out. And when those weights are properly placed, they can increase moment of inertia significantly, which is a key to enhanced forgiveness. The clubmaker’s Trajectory Tuning technology ensures that standard lofts are adjustable plus or minus 1⁄2-degree, while a lightweight hosel is crafted so that it provides the benefits of adjustability without sacrificing the performance that can be lost with clubs that have bulkier designs in that area.
