The fade-biased design of the PING i15 Driver meets the needs of golfers who place a high priority on working their tee shots. The traditional pear -shaped 460cc titanium head is engineered with a bulge crown design and deeper face to optimize energy transfer for greater ball speed and the solid feel preferred by better golfers. Internal weighting reduces spin and the hosel is positioned slightly back from the face to help promote tour-preferred trajectories and control. Its titanium carbon finish provides a sleek and optically pleasing appearance.
With one notable exception, there's not that much technology in the i15 that we haven't already seen, to some degree, in the G-2, G-5, and G-10. You'll find what's become fairly standard stuff: a 460cc titanium head, a face that's thicker in the middle and thinner around the perimeter, and internal weighting designed to tune launch conditions. The i15 is however a refinement of all that engineering and tweaked toward players who make consistent contact with the center of the clubface.
The Ping i15 driver is designed for the golfer who wants to shape their shots off the tee and want a medium-high trajectory ball flight. Shaping your shots can be a little tricky with the i15, since the face has a fade-biased designed. Hitting a fade or straight shot couldnít be easier with the i15, thanks in part to the hosel positioned farther from the face of the club. To hit a draw with the i15, I found it took a little more practice with closing the face of the driver more at impact than Iím used too. Once you figure this out, the i15 driver is very easy shape your shots.
Overall, I was really impressed with the Ping i15 driver and how easy it is to produce medium-high trajectory drives that went long and straight. The i15 driver is a great club for a player who wants workability and distance off the tee.
Golfers' review:
Club is closed at address, but gives a beautiful little draw. Using the 11 degree with the tour spec stiff shaft, great combo. Spin 3200 and launching at 10 degrees and carries a mile ( not a lot of role). Sounds solid, looks great and I never thought I'd use 11 degrees of loft.
I have purchased the i15 driver after testing several drivers in a simulator. The club took a bit of work but WOW this is a club that is worth learning to hit, long, workable and fun to hit.
I brought this driver a month ago and my first time out with it i was amazing hitting 12/14 fairways but now im fighting a hard hook any ideas on wats happening.
Have hit Titleist for years and decided on a whim to give it a try. Love the fade bias and this club has a hot face. The stock Ping shaft is very well made but a little long. It measured 45 3/4". I purchased the stiff shaft model. I then removed the shaft from the head and tripped it 1". I love it and it is the best driver I have ever owned.
The i15 has great balance and stability. I feel as though I can repeat my swing easily and hit fairways with regularity. Best driver that I have ever owned and this is a low handicapper's dream- again - if you have swing speed. Trade in that old driver. You won't regret it!
