    Have seen them as much as 14g .

      wow! That's huge if that is through a set.
      I would think that Pings exacting lost-wax casting tolerance for weight would be much closer than that.

        No would not be through a set. ( at least I hope not)

        I think they have even heavier ones . There was a Ping assembly video circulating that might have mentioned the weights used.

        The medallions are used to target a final swingweight in each iron after assembly so if the head and shaft are light and the grip maybe a bit heavy 14 g is not unreasonable. As you know different shafts produce different swing-weights and Ping builds To target a sw.

        but you are right, 4-8 grams ( 2 -4 swingweight points) would be more in keeping with the norm.

        I'm a Ping iron user, 2 sets and this year rebuilt a set of custom shop Pings for a buddy and was very disappointed in the variation. Swingweights were not consistent at all, nor was flex and they even built some irons longer to reach a heavier swingweight. In one club that the shaft snapped and was sent back to be replaced, they sent it back 1/2 inch shorter than it was originally built
