Ping i20 Design Features
The Ping i20 driver is built from a light alloy material that results in the a players ability to reach a higher swing speed.
The unique, low density material gave engineers the freedom to distribute weight in a way that elevated the moment of inertia while positioning the center of gravity in a location that promotes lower spin.
In other words, the material allowed engineers to create a club that flies farther and straighter. Which is exactly what anyone interested in intelligent improvement is going to be after.
Ping i20 Aerodynamic Clubhead
A major focus in the design of the Ping i20 driver is the aerodynamics of the club head.
Less wind resistance means a faster club head, which means LONGER DRIVES.
As a club engineered for the mid-to-high handicapper looking for less spin and more carry, the aerodynamics help.
Weighting & Technology
In an equipment era where weighted screws and adjustments are all the rage, Ping simply chose to go with two non-changeable tungsten plates on the bottom of the club.
The position of the plates add to the MOI and CG placement which continues to promote a higher ball flight with less spin.
