Summary: These irons are juuuuuust right. Not too big, not too small. Not too much offset, not too little. Progressive head size, but nothing obnoxious either. They're an outstanding combination of i5 and i20 - the best bits of each. More compact and better turf interaction than i20. Like i5's with progressive head size and more forgiveness on the toe.
Summary: I have had the Ping i15 Axivcore x-flex driver in my bag for a good 2-3 years. One of the major reasons why I did so great with this driver is due to my fitting experience at an actual driving range. I don't think I would have considered this club if I were at a local golf shop hitting a net. My fitting instructor noticed that I hit the ball high and recommended that I go with an 8 degree. The ball flight is low and my snap hook has been controlled due to the open face.
Summary: Solid feel and good spacing club to club. Visually good but it takes a bit of getting used to the large sole. Forgiving on off-center hits. After playing the first 4-6 weeks I was very comfortable and confident using them.
Summary: These are fantastic irons. Progressive set improves forgiveness and trajectory with longer irons, but keeps the shorter irons tidy enough for control and scoring (plenty forgiving to boot). The previous poster saying the irons were a 'club shorter than his mizzies' probably fit for the wrong shaft. I've hit the MP's and these are longer.. I get a club more out of PING CFS and AWT shafts than I do the KBS Tours as well. But more important than length - is consistency.
Summary: Easy to hit but not for me. Picked up a set of used black dot with KBS Tour Stiff shafts. Was hitting Mizuno MP52's, looking for more forgiveness. Absolutely no feel and 1 club shorter than my Mizuno's. Lots of great reviews posted but again, not for me....back to my mizzy's until something else catches my eye.
Summary: Have owned and tested numerous drivers over the past 20 years and I must say that this is the WORST driver I have ever used by far. I have been using a number of Callaway Drivers (FT 3, FT 5, FT 9) over the past few years and hit these drivers reasonably well. A friend had this Ping driver which he hits OK, I liked the look so I bought one off Ebay at my usual specs.
Conclusion: For those golfers trying to decide between G15 or I15, it depends more on how you play with offset irons. Some have a tendency to slice, and play better with moderate offset irons. Others like me (14 handicap) are not highly skilled but the offset plays tricks with my brain. Some highly skilled players (includes a few tour pro's!) actually play with the G-series irons. You can now buy a customized I15 iron with stock graphite shaft for $100 & stock steel shaft for $80.
Summary: These are not the longest irons (high ball flight with graphite shafts)- but They are very accurate and have amazingly consistent distance control. The short irons are deadly accurate, especially the "U" wedge. The finish is durable and looks good in the bag. These are PERFECT for players who hit it well- and don't mind admitting that they need a little help on toe hits or thinned shots from time to time.
Conclusion: Hey JonPSU85, I have played both the G and I 15's. I used the G15's for the last two months of 2010. I have the AWT stiff shaft. I also use the Pro V1x. The frustration I had with the G's was the ball flight. Very high. I agree with all of the other posters regarding the ability to hit straight, flush shots from just about any lie. I was looking for a lower ball flight with the ability to work the ball some. I got fitted for the i15's this summer.
