  1. PING is super vigilant about preventing any retail sales below MRSP. They bring the hammer down on any seller who is caught violating this, whether it’s a big box or a small pro shop. Look at any website- all sales/coupons will exclude PING clubs. I think this helps boost resale values a bit since there is little/no discounted new product to compete with.
  2. Tryouts at the top and bottom of the bag are over (for now). Prices include FedEx shipping within CONUS. Tried to make prices reasonable, but everything is OBO - eager to clear out the closet!

  3. How long have you been developing this line that incorporates the 3D printing tech? Any unexpected impacts on the sound/feel that needed to be worked through during the prototyping process?

  7. I would question if you need a club between the 5i and hybrid for gapping purposes. From 200+ yards I feel like 20ish yard gaps are fine- you’re better off choking down on the hybrid, or pulling the 5 if short is a better miss than long. Rather than trying to find a perfect 4i or replacement that goes 215 yards, think about what shot (trajectory/shape particularly) would be a useful addition at the top of the bag for the courses you play often. Maybe it’s a 7w, maybe it’s a 2i, maybe a mini driver... but I’d bet there’s more added value there than than just finding a 210-215 club
  8. 1. City, State? Washington, DC 2. Handicap? 9.0 3. Current putter? TaylorMade Spider X 4. What Bettinardi Studio Stock putter do you want to test? SS28 5. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Without a doubt! 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Gladly!
  9. In my experience it’s much easier to add toe hang (lead tape) than remove it. Source: failed experiment trying to port out weight from the toe of a Betti.... in either case I’ve found you need a decent amount of weight change to meaningfully move the CG. presumably easier on a putter with removable weights, but feel might get wonky. the real solution requires bending or custom work on the hosel.
  10. PING updates the G series on a consistent 2 year rotation. The players irons are on an 'as needed' cycle it seems. iBlade has been out even longer than i210! I think it is important to remember that PING's core competency is engineering, not marketing - so if there isn't a meaningful improvement ready, they don't force it. On top of that, they are still a closely-held family owned business; can't begrudge them for taking a long-term view and being concerned about doing things they right way (in their view at least), rather than appeasing short term demands of a PE group or publi
