The Review of Ping K15 Driver 
By yiyad123 on Jul 20, 2012 06:17 AM
While it's easy to get caught up in the fitting, that's not the reason we're here. This is, after all a review of the Ping K15 Driver. Released in the fall of last year, the K15 rounds out PING's "15 series", which also includes the G15 and I15. Though it hardly seems possible, the Ping K15 Driver is engineered to be even more forgiving than the G15. According to PING, the all titanium K15 offers golfers a high trajectory ball flight with low to medium spin.
In reality, the Ping K15 Driver is very much a replacement for the G10 Draw model. Unlike the G15 or I15, the K15 features what PING calls "Straight Flight Technology" or SFT. SFT is PING-speak for "we moved 10% of the total clubhead mass toward the heel of the club". PING has made that extra weight visible via a slight bumpout which is visible on the clubhead (occasionally so at address). While the I15 is for better players, and the G15 is probably a good fit for most of the rest of the golfing population, the Best Price Ping K15 Hybrid is specifically designed to help those golfers who struggle to contain their big fade, or slice as it's more commonly called.
Let our charts be your guide on this one. If you're the kind of golfer who fights a slice, frequently misses to the right, or simply can't achieve any degree of consistency with your current driver, then absolutely, you should be looking at the Ping K15 Fairway Wood. If however, you miss, left, or don't miss much at all, then realistically, there is very little reason for you to look at the K15. Fortunately, the G15 and I15 are also part of PING's current driver lineup. If the Ping K15 Driver doesn't suite you, there's a good chance one of those will.
We do think the K15 is an excellent choice for the higher handicap golfer, the guy whose idea of workability is "working the ball out of the trees" before hitting his third. For guys who want to shape their shots, or for those looking for a bit more feel from the big dog, the K15 probably isn't ideal.
The Ping G15 Driver is definitely not a one size fits all driver, but for the guy it does fit, it could prove to be an absolute game changer.
