    well I am going to be 52 this year
    Swing weight of course is not total weight. It's 50g driver shaft, I just need to sense where the head is to hit solid shots

    My toe weights from Ping arrived, will play with weighting on 9i and PW

    Ping sent you weights? I asked last year for my i500's and they wouldn't send them, only replace the ones in the heads after I sent them the clubs. What's your angle/mojo/mind control you used!

    Only because my 9i came in light by a few points and I don't want to send them back the club

    How did you remove the old weight and install the new one?

  • JerryTBallJerryTBall Avid Amateur NCMembers Posts: 367 ✭✭✭✭

    Well I got my 919’s today, which replaced my blueprints. Like I’ve said before I got rid of the blueprints because of the shaft and Mizuno got these clubs right so just as a comparison you could not go wrong with either set

    I change clubs too often to be able to update my signature but here’s what I currently play

    So, I'm 5 rounds in with the Blueprints right now and I can't remember owning a more accurate set. I've shot 3 of the 4 lowest rounds of the year with them. Possibly just drinking the Kool-Aid, but dang are they good. 7 iron on order...I'm interested to see how far up I can go before my talent fails.

    HAs anyone tried these as a combo set with the i210's?

  • fore_lifefore_life Swung too hard, hit it too pure. Members Posts: 10,428 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    How’s the finish holding up in these? That’s been my biggest gripe with ping, they look like cheap trash after a season with that yucky dull finish.

    Need some blacked out blueprints (black n blue anyone?)

    Was due new irons and these weren’t even on my radar. Picked up a G410 Plus driver two weeks ago and took a demo 7 iron Blueprint for a test...My God!

    They made my MP18’s look like game improvement irons. So pure at address and off the face, ridiculous turf interaction, change of shaft from LZ 6.5 to DG 120 so 10g lighter shaft. I thought the DG was going to send the ball too high but it’s a lovely mid flight without ballooning and I can stop the short irons quicker on the greens.

    Blue dot. Got an i500 3 iron in retro loft. Looking forward to winter league with these beauties!

    For those of you playing the Blueprints, what wedges are playing? Is there a wedge that blends better and doesn’t look massive next the the PW? Glide 2.0, 3.0, Glide Forged, or another brand?
    Just recently picked up a set of I210s to try out but have always been a blade guy and am already looking to scratch the itch with some Blueprints.

    I went with the Cleveland RTX gap wedge which transitions well from my Blueprint PW to my CBX wedges.

    So my next question which is directed at Ping, why is there no fitting head for the blueprints?!?!?!? I’m not going to drop this kind of money on an iron that I can only try with DG 120 S300’s. I know a lot of ppl will say someone looking at this iron will already know what shaft they like but come on Ping.

    I have tossed in the Fujikura MCI 120x iron shaft in the blueprint 6 iron. Testing commences in 3 hours. Only lost one swingweight point even with length dropping 1/4." The 100's were solid in the s55's so hoping for the best, at least my elbows are
    My evil fitter sent me home with a Ventus 7 to play with as well

    They've been in hand for a while now. Anyone reach the end of the honeymoon phase yet? I know Blade and Cardoustie are never gonna fall out of love. It's really amazing that Ping have managed to produce a tiny blade that appears to have Ping's signature play-ability (for this type of iron profile anyway) and looks/feels awesome. I play any and all clubs no matter the OEM, but Ping has long been my favorite.

  • howeberhoweber Members Posts: 838 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Finally got my set in. 3 & 4 i500, 5-PW Blueprint with AMT X100s.
    These things are the real deal. Best looking retail iron from address in years, and the performance is as good as anything I've ever played. They feel different from my Mizzys, but still great. And noticeably more forgiving.
    I'm especially impressed by the i500 long irons considering all the hate they get. Sure, they don't feel like a forged blade off the face, but man that four iron LAUNCHES so effortlessly compared to my Mizunos.

    At long, long last, it looks like I've finally kicked the MP-4s out of the bag. We'll see if they stick.

    I have a similar set up with i500 3&4 iron with s55 5-pw. I agree that the i500 feels more like a wood/hybrid, but the performance is incredible. My 4-iron launches significantly higher with about 20 more yards than my 5-iron.

    Nope...absolutely still in love with these. Just absurdly easy to hit. I think the last 2 rounds I only hit bad shots when I got really tired, and started cramping in my left calf, from walking as I'm trying to get myself into shape for Bandon next year and it was the first 2 rounds I've walked in a couple of years.

    Mine are fine. I have 2 noticeable scratches on the bottom of my 8i. Most likely from a couple of small rocks in a bunker. Otherwise no issues at all.
