PING replacement I200/G700


Recommended Posts

Let us know. Spin concerns me the most, for me spin seems to help distance control. The i200 line has solid spin numbers, perhaps the 500 line will as well.

I might be totally making this up, but I swear I heard this or read this somewhere (albeit some time ago before the anser forged came to the states).

 

Ping did a trial with their staffers once, giving them a forged iron and a cast iron. Didn’t tell them the difference, only that one was forged and one wasn’t. Only one player guessed right, Lee Jansen.

 

They also chromed out some irons and few of the testers automatically assumed they were forged simply because of the chrome finish.

 

No real point to this, just something I remembered reading. Hopefully someone can corroborate

My friend Mike Nicolette was at Ping when they did this and you are exactly right, the tour guys could not tell which was which. I saw the irons that were used and hit a couple on the range at Ping, they were basically chromed S59 heads that did have a forged look. They also had some very similar blades that were forged I think by a company in Taiwan that they used for the test. If the tour guys could tell a positive difference then Ping was going to get into more forged products but when they could not tell one from the other they scraped the idea. It really came down to the sound which was only very slightly different at best, performance was identical and tests on the Ping machine showed the same thing.

 

Science. This alone is what makes me like ping. Not that they did the test, but they abandoned the placebo. I’m not saying forged is nothing, just that in irons, if it doesn’t matter... bye Felicia.

14 Pings. Blueprints are incredibly good. Fetch is the most underrated putter on the market. Don't @ me.

So far I’ve learned from this thread from people who’ve held the club in hand:

 

-i500 has less offset than iBlade but more offset than i200

-head size between iBlade and i200, also head size between i200 and G700

 

Why do companies ask customers for input? We’ve demonstrated here that avid golfers can’t identify basic shapes unanimously.

 

My guess is that it’s not a progressive iron set in terms of head size and that’s probably throwing people off.

anyone know for sure if these are 100% forged or just the face is forged ??

 

i would hate it if the entire head was forged.

Are the i201 or i500 supposed to be more forgiving? How did the head size of the i500 compare to the p790?

 

Thanks!!

i500 are supposed to be more forgiving. head size of the i500 is similar in size to that of the P790

 

Got to see both I500 and I210 in hand saturday. In 7 Iron they both looked identical in terms of size. I was told the I500 will in-between i210 and G400. I'm assuming because of them being hollow and the toe screw the I500 will be a bit more forgiving then the i210.

 

Just the face is forged.

 

 

So any word on what’s the finish being used on these new clubs?

The test is somewhat irrelevant when you are talking about a group of people who have a game and strike pattern that isn't close to the average person on this forum.

 

If you are good enough and rarely stray from the centre, most irons sound great.

It did look a bit more on the shinier side. Did not get into details about the finish. But it is different from i200, and iblade
