The G430 HL Irons are built for slower-swing-speed golfers who don’t generate sufficient clubhead speed and ball velocity from traditionally weighted clubs. Custom-engineered with ultra-light shafts (Alta Quick 34/45) and grips (Lamkin UTx 41g), we’ve lowered the overall system weight so golfers can swing faster and generate more ball speed for higher launching, and longer carrying shots.
The G430 HL multi-material iron from PING Golf produces distance gains of approximately 7-10 yards and improved accuracy throughout the set. It’s the result of a complex design that combines a lower CG with stronger, custom engineered lofts and a thinner face that delivers up to 2 mph more ball speed – leading to significant distance gains without compromising PING’s famous forgiveness.
A key contributor to the added distance is the PurFlex cavity badge, an innovation with seven flex zones that allows more free bending to increase ball speed across the face. In combination with a lower CG, the badge contributes to the solid feel and pleasing impact sound. The stronger lofts across the set resulted in the addition of a 41° PW to ensure proper gapping options and allow for standard lofts in the traditional scoring wedges (45.5°, 50°, 54°, 58°).
Among the refinements to the overall shape is a shorter hosel, which creates a more compact, clean look and helps lower the CG, aligning it closer to the force line to increase ball speed and ensure solid impact, especially low on the face. Approximately 1° of additional bounce throughout the set provides clean turf interaction and pure strikes, minimising “heavy” shots that come up short. The high-density tungsten toe and shaft tip weights contribute to its high MOI and produce tighter dispersion patterns. The hydropearl 2.0 chrome finish delivers consistent performance from wet or dry grass.

Hyper 17-4 stainless steel strengthens the face, allowing for more face flexing that generates increased distance and a higher max height to hold shots on the green.
