Ping i15 Irons
From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, March 2010)
Category: Better-Player Irons
We tested: 3-PW with Ping AWT steel shaft
Company line: "We designed the i15 for better players who put a premium on control and shotmaking. It's a progressive design that features more forgiving long irons with added offset and more precise mid- and short irons."
OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: Top-rated model for forgiveness; long irons are easier to hit than the majority of irons in the test; very stable at impact; consistent, repeatable distance is the order of the day; stock grips feel just right; cleaner look at address than past models like the i10; alignment line on the clubface is useful.
CONS: Slightly muffled feel at impact is not as pleasing as some other irons tested; testers want more clubhead feel through the swing; more dig at impact than expected; progressive offset can be a distraction.
From Sports Illustrated Golf+ Equipment Issue (February 8, 2010)
The multimaterial i15 is designed for players who work the ball. A progressive set, the longer irons are larger for more forgiveness, while the mid- and short-irons transition to smaller clubheads for added workability. The stainless steel iron features a tungsten toe insert to add forgiveness to the midsize design.

From Golf Magazine (December 2009)
Ping engineers crafted the i15 in response to demand for an iron that's less blade-like and more forgiving than the i10. The result is a progressive set with slightly bigger long irons designed to get shots airborne easily. Middle irons and compact short irons feature narrower soles and less offset. A tungsten toe insert provides more stability on off-center hits, and a redesigned "Custom Tuning Port" improves sound and impact feel.
