What are the lofts of Ping Eye 2 irons?
Lofts. The loft of a golf club is the angle created between the clubface and the ground – and will be different for every club in your bag. The loft will have a direct impact on the distance the ball travels – the lower the loft, the further the ball will go.
An ideal progression is for the pitching wedge to be 45 degrees, followed by a 50-degree gap wedge and complemented by 54- and 58-degree sand and lob wedges.
#9 Iron – 39.5° Pitching Wedge – 44.5° Utility Wedge – 49.5°
The PING i210 comes in two loft specifications: Standard and Power. The Power version means the loft settings are between 0°-1.5° “strong” for extra distance and a lower trajectory.
A pitching wedge is the lowest-lofted of the named wedges, used to hit a variety of short-range shots. The term “pitching wedge” is now used by virtually all manufacturers and players to describe this club; Karsten Manufacturing (maker of the PING brand) simply labels their pitching wedges “W” for “wedge”.
While a little unconventional in terms of wedge markings, it’s actually simple to understand. W, U, S is an abbreviation for Pitching Wedge, Utility Wedge, Sand Wedge, found on PING’s labeling of their golf clubs.
The loft of the utility wedge is usually between 50 to 54 degrees; the design is usually defined in such a way to sit between the lofts of the pitching wedge, normally at 48 degrees, and a sand wedge, normally at 56 degrees.
