PING’s new products

8.00am 5th September 2002 - Corporate

PING golf equipment has just completed the largest, most diversified, innovative and exciting product introduction in the company’s 44-year history before its World Sales Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.

Nearly 200 domestic and international PING sales representatives and distributors representing more than 70 countries gathered in Phoenix to learn firsthand about the company’s 2003 product line.

In total, there will be three new families of PING® putters, two new sets of PING irons, new PING wedges, new PING lightweight carry bags and new cart-specific PING golf bags.

Following is a capsule description of each new PING product:

PING JASठPutters forged from titanium with tungsten inserts to provide up to 40 per cent improved moment of inertia.

PING G2ठPutters, a family of 16 stainless-steel putter models, so named because many are the second generation of the company’s winning models.

PING SpecifyठPutters will permit golfers to completely custom fit the look, feel and weight of this family of putters – the ultimate in putter fitting.

ING i3+ठIrons and i3+ Blade Irons, both fashioned from investment-cast stainless steel, feature a series of enhancements to the original i3® irons. Developed in concert with a new, proprietary PING steel shaft called the CS Liteठ(Constant Step) shaft.

Six new tour-proven Wedges with playability features designed for maximum performance under a variety of conditions. Very traditional looking wedges with a cavity for weight adjustability and forgiveness.

Five lightweight carry bags ranging in weight from 5.4 pounds to an ultra-lightweight 1.2 pounds, should pique the interest of all avid golfers who enjoy walking while playing the game. One is specifically designed for left-handed golfers – an industry first.

The Frontierठand Lady Frontierठbags, designed and engineered to meet the needs of golfers who ride carts, join the T9.5 Consumer Bag and Tour Staff Bag as new entries in the company’s premium bag line.
