Ping Iron Shafts

Ping manufactures iron shafts in either steel or graphite. Selecting the best shaft for your iron is crucial to getting the best contact and distance on a golf shot. Ping uses G10 technology to createits golf shafts. The G10 line has three different shaft specifications: the Ping TFC 129i, Ping AWT and Ping Z-Z65. Each of the three shafts has different specifications that can change the outcome of a golf swing. All of these specifications can be customized to make a shaft that caters to any type of swing.

Ping TFC 129i Iron Shaft

The Ping TFC 129i uses a graphite shaft. The flex on the shafts are soft, regular and stiff. The torque on each shaft can either be 2.6 or 3.5 degrees. Weight on each shaft can be 70, 74 or 86 g (grams).

Ping ATW Iron Shaft

The Ping ATW iron shafts are all steel. The flexes on the iron can be soft, regular, stiff or x-stiff (a stronger version of stiff). The shafts come in degrees of 2.0, 2.1, 1.6 or 1.5.

Ping Z-Z65 Iron Shaft
