New Mysterious PING Iron that looks like iBlade/G700 Combo

PBrowne3PBrowne3 Advanced Members Posts: 549
What is this thing??



It has popped up in a lot of Ping bags at the Career Builder Challenge wrx pics that Greg took. It appears to be some type of long iron replacement. It is definitely not the G400 Crossover or the G700 iron and there is almost zero offset.



It basically looks like a traditional muscleback, but with a toe ****.



There is also an area about 1/2" wide towards the toe section on the back of the club that looks like it will eventually host the product name, kind of like the original Glide wedges had when they first came out on tour as prototypes.



Anyone have the inside scoop.

    I think that's the point. They've got the chunky hybrid and now (maybe) a "players" driving iron.

    There is a players version of the G700 scheduled for release in Fall of 2018... They look very much like the P790. Bigger than iBlade, but smaller than i200. Evidently some of the reps thought this was what was coming this spring, but were straightened out that the G700 was a potential GMax replacement that looks more like a full set of crossovers. Lots of offset, very wide sole, very big, “very ugly”...




    And it is hollow? That doesn't sound appealing at all. Would it replace the i200 line? Doesn't make sense considering how the i200s are amazing and are a new redesign. Is it full set or just driving irons?

    Sounds like it was supposed to be a players version of the G700 using the hollow technology. No reason to replace anything. Look at the 20 SKUs Callaway has now with the Rogue. Look at the TM line P790, P770, P750, P730. The 770 and 750 are overlapping.. iBlade and i200 are 431 steel, these would be hollow design out of 17-4 ph and maraged steel face, G400 17-4 ph. So different designs and materials just like every other manufacturer..



    I am surprised Ping let one out of the plant and lucky we have pixel peepers here




    I really don't get who would want something like that other than for a 2/3/4 iron.

    Hard for me to believe that is a replacement for the iBlade. Too radical of a departure, given how many pros have the iBlade in their bag..



    I would think the feel of a hollow or even cavity filled iron would be much different than a cast club.

    Could be a higher price point replacement for the Anser forged line. I don’t care what it is. I can’t wait to try it, assuming that it is released.

    Looking at the picture, the club looks like it has a number stamped on the sole. Thinking a players version of the G400 without the offset and cavity.

    Whatever it is, ping considers it a 3 iron.



    You can just make out a 3 on the sole in that last bottom left photo



    Likely pings version of a “players utility iron”. Perhaps in just 2,3,4 irons.

    This would have to be more forgiving than the i200 to make sense. For example, if you are an iBlade/s55 player and wanted more forgiveness in your long irons, wouldn't you just go with the i200 in your long irons? Maybe it is G400 forgiveness with less offset.

    Who? Most golfers. Offset helps elevate the ball and lessens the tendency to slice.



    Most golfers fight a slice and don’t hit the ball high enough, especially in the long irons.



    Offset is a very good design element for most golfers.

    This would have to be more forgiving than the i200 to make sense. For example, if you are an iBlade/s55 player and wanted more forgiveness in your long irons, wouldn't you just go with the i200 in your long irons? Maybe it is G400 forgiveness with less offset.




    It looks like G400 forgiveness/headsize with less offset, perhaps altered COG too.




    It’s the same size as the iblade/s55 in the bags next to it. Definitely not g400 size.

    This mystery club is what I thought the G700's were going to be until I saw more detailed pictures. These look to compete directly with the 790's and TMB's. Very exciting stuff with how popular the 790's have been. PING should cash in on this demand while it's still hot coming into the 2018 season!

    Unless this would be a completely new model, I believe the next PING line scheduled to be updated would be the i200. If this is a prototype for that line (i200), I wouldn't expect it until the Aug/Sept/Oct time frame.

    Please release these! The G700’s were really disappointing looking. Who wants that much offset?




    Somebody that wants an SGI set?

    Maybe it’s an new anser line of irons since those were forged and in between the i20s and s56

    Put me down for something a little crazier. This is going to be something like the i500. It's going to only be in a 2/3/4/5, and it's intention is to compliment both the iBlade and i200 line.



    I know this is going to sound like heresy here, but I'm going to wager they update the iBlade with some minor tweaks, but that they don't touch the i200 for another cycle. I could see something more like an iBlade Black/8620, and i500 narrow hollow hi-ball irons.



    It's really just the combo set explicitly made into a margin opportunity. My 2c.

    Your thoughts on what this photographed club is may very well be correct, but I have a very strong feeling the i200 is getting an update later this year.

    I could see Ping offering a product to make combo sets more seamless since they are so common. That would be great.



    I’d like to see a beveled leading edge on the iBlade as one of those tweaks. Have had that on a few iron sets, most recently the Nike Vapor Pro Combos, and like it a lot. Love the overall look of the iBlade
