  1. There’s a set on the rack at Valley Golf in Phoenix. DG120 S300, standard length, black dot. MCC align grips.
  2. > @From_Parts_Unknown said: > I had a chance to demo a set of Blueprint irons and Ping totally botched this iron. > > First, it's an 8620 head, they're not supposed to feel as soft as they do. It's fugazi carbon steel. They should be much harder than they are, Ping should not have made these soft feeling, it's deceptive and could warrant a class action suit based on fraud. A golfer buying these because he thinks they're going to be that nice hard Ping feeling like Karsten use to make will be completely disappointed. > > Second, the irons are way too forgiving. Small headed muscle back blades are not supposed to have any MOI. That 4 iron should be much harder to hit than it is, period! I bet it's that tungsten screw that is **** it up. Ping should have found another way to alter swing weight without giving the head forgiveness. You can't make muscle back irons with forgiveness, it's irresponsible. The next thing you know, 10-15 handicaps are going to be playing blades. Next thing you know, this set is going to be cannibalizing the G410 sales, and that's just bad business. > > It's clear to me why Ping never made a set of muscle back irons, they have no idea how to do it. Someone needs to send them a set of baby blades so they can understand that muscle backs should only be soft if you use real carbon steel forged by Eitri on Nidavellir using 22 different dies, and most importantly, they shouldn't be easy to hit. Terrible. I approve of this post. My impressions are similar so far, but with only a few range sessions on them. I’ll know more after my tournament round tomorrow.

Super solid. Even the 4i was fine for me. The heads are small but not noticeably smaller than my 718mbs were. At least not that I can tell. The MB’s are gone so I can’t compare though. Ping has a winner here for sure. > > Mind me asking if yours was a early order or did a shop sell you some early? I had my shop email the rep before ordering was even an option. So basically a pre-pre-order lol

  5. Well...damn now I feel bad. Apparently they aren’t supposed to be available until the 30th. They’re no longer available on the rack and I shouldn’t have posted pics.

Just worried it might be too big of a gap! Thanks in advance for any input!! > > I am really considering pulling the trigger on these by these weekend hahahaa > > > I think I'd be doing something like 21, 25, 29 - then power spec., but I'd be patient. Just decide how you want the BPs. You might be happy with two 7-irons, too. I think it's hard to predict, but if you've been playing power spec'd 210s, you're going to be a full club back if you don't power the Bps. By being patient, buy them how you want them, and then adjust your lofts after the fact. Once you see what your actual gap is between your 27º 6-iron and your either 32 or 34º 7-iron, you'll have to go between "close enough", bends, or get a 6 1/2 iron. The i500s go further for many people (they didn’t really for me). I’d guess retro spec i500 and power spec BPs should have the best gap between the 6 and 7. For a combo set, I like @matchavez idea of considering two 7is as well.
  7. And no, Kevin H. You may NOT hit them! :smiley:
  8. Deleted pics because, unbeknownst to me, I wasn’t supposed to post them. Not sure if they’ll stay in the quoted posts but whatevs. ‘Sall good. ?
  9. > @mBiden2 said: > In hand pics please! As soon as I get home after dinner. Anyone have specific pic requests?
  10. Has anyone else heard these are extremely limited? I was told I was lucky I got my request/order in early because “only 5 sets were available in your area.” I’m in PHOENIX. WTF lol.
  11. Standard lofts (I’m guessing these will be similar to other blade iron lofts), red dot, +1/2”, C-Taper stiff. Yes. Please.
  12. Yup solid forging. Weight port is...a weight port. Edit: and for me, “submitting” the order was just telling the shop I use what I want, they wrote it down and emailed the rep, he said they won’t be able until June, they told me. They’ll actually submit the order once a SKU/price is determined.
  13. Had my guy submit an order. The rep emailed back and said mid-June availability. We’ll see.
