G15 irons Design and Technology

Like its predecessor, the ping g15 irons are an oversized iron designed for players seeking maximum forgiveness. However, several changes have been made which PING believes should make the club even more forgiving.
The epicenter of the G15's technological advances is the new Custom Tuning Port ("CTP"). While the G10 had a CTP, PING engineers reshaped and repositioned the CTP to save seven grams. The weight savings of a thinner face allowed the engineers move weight to the perimeter - particularly the toe - to improve forgiveness for off-center hits as well as increase MOI. PING believes that these changes provide the proper structure and support to ensure distance control and solid feel.
A second change from the G10 is the sole design. A wider sole positions the center of gravity lower and farther back to increase launch angle as well as "ensure a smooth transition through the turf." To offset the higher trajectories, PING strengthened the lofts of every iron by 1 degree.
The last semi-major change from the G10 is that the ping g15 conform to the new USGA groove rule. Ishiner
