The I210 Irons from Ping
A larger, softer elastomer insert in the compact head activates at impact for unprecedented feel while a machined face and grooves help provide the impact consistency and distance precision required for scoring. Hot, forgiving long irons and precise, controlled mid and short irons create a high-performing set.
The activated elastomer insert is much bigger in volume and 50% softer, creating 25% more face contact, ensuring a pure feel at impact while also returning more energy to the ball.
More Face Contact
The additional volume of the custom tuning port, which also increases perimeter weighting and provides swingweight finetuning, allows for a 30% larger insert and creates 25% more face contact, resulting in activation of the elastomer to ensure a soft, pleasing feel.
Premium Look and Quality
A refined, more compact shape and look combined with minimal, progressive offset help convey the high-end appeal of the set.
Smooth Through Turf
The lead edge and sole profile were enhanced to improve turf interaction for distance precision with workability. A HydroPearl Chrome 2.0 finish ensures repels water to greatly improve consistency from the rough and wet conditions.
Mirroring the Glide 2.0 specs, a sharper edge radius and tighter groove spacing in the pitching wedge and U-wedge provides greater precision and help prevent fliers on shots where control matters most.

Ping i210 Irons
Reviewed By: Andy Myers
Now I’ve gotten my head around the new Ping model numbering system I must say I am incredibly impressed with these new irons. In a market of cavity backed irons it is difficult to stand out but Ping have created a great iron.
At a first glance it's hard to see an obvious difference between these irons and their predecessors the i200 irons but after a few hits the differences are clear. The head still uses the cavity back design but now it features a larger section in the sole area which sees a 30% bigger Elastomer Insert that is 50% softer than before. This gives a great feeling iron. Also, the shorter irons have a much more player iron appearance which could make these irons appeal to the better golfer.
A great iron once again from Ping and a real rival for the other irons in this category on the market. These are already in the bags of a couple of my students and I can see them staying a while. If you're looking for an alternative to the i200 it might be worth checking out the Ping G400 Irons.
Andy's Pro Tip
The lofts on these irons are not as strong as some others on the market so maybe opt for the ‘Power Spec’ which delofts them and adds distance.
