Ping Introduces Karsten Hybrid Iron Set

With this new offering, named after company founder Karsten Solheim, Ping brings to market what is becoming an increasingly common option in the game, and that is a mixed set of hybrids and irons that are created to make it easier for players to more optimally build their bags.
Start with the hybrids, which are available in 3H, 4H and 5H.
They feature a deep head profile and wide sole, and the center-of-gravity locations are progressive, farther back in the lower-lofted heads to promote higher launch and lower and more forward in the higher-lofted ones to reduce spin. In addition, company technicians say, extreme internal heel-and-toe weighting raises the moment of inertia to enhance forgiveness.
As for the irons, which run from 5 to 9 and also include PW, UW and SW, the heads are constructed of 17-4 stainless steel and made with precision-engineered loft-and-length progressions that are scientifically paired with wide sole designs to produce a deeper CG, for easier launching and higher maximum height.
