Ping I500 Real Course Reviews Please!!


Recommended Posts

the real world reviews of the i500 aren't that favourable

 

Not really. Mine is long term. I still love my set. Was a hard set to dial in , but once setup properly they are on auto pilot. When I say setup I’m talking lie adjustment 4-5 times over a month period. Lead tape for heavy and progressive swing weight . Shaft change to old fav modus 130. Lofts bent back starting off a 48 degree pw. And then many balls to figure out their tendencies. Same as most any iron.

 

The negative reviews are generally from the guy who buys Andy ties for a round , doesn’t find the middle of the face and then sellls quick. Find a negative review of someone who’s played them for 3-4 months. Only one usually is someone who’s worried about cosmetics/ resale value. I’m not that guy.

 

Great iron that is going to tell you when you miss the middle of the face.

I have had a set for a few months now. I had been playing iBlades previous to getting the I500s. I had an older set of AP2s many years ago. I don’t think the i500s are going to be significantly more f

^^^Blade nails the i500 here. It's not an iron for everyone and it will not give you the forgiveness of a game improvement iron. With that being said, if you can hit the middle of the face most of the time the i500 will reward you with a deep high flight that is surprisingly forgiving for the segment it is intended for. A 15cap may find it really hard to bag these though as it's a small head with little offset.

 

The i500 is sensitive to strike and the ball you use, more so than any other club I've bagged. Now we can say that about most irons, but these should be in the same arena as true blades. You need to be a decent ball striker to see how damn good there really are and like Blade stated they need to be dialed in.

 

Not to beat a dead horse but get fit for these. TXG did a fascinating comparison (

) and found that the power spec gave the highest ball flight and best landing angle due to the increase in ball speed. The exact opposite of what you would think. These are unique clubs and I'd recommend anyone looking to purchase these to due your homework and be honest with yourself about your ability.

I saw that video and was surprised by their conclusion, but that worked for them. I am a slower swinger. I hit the ball out of the center of the face most of the time, and I can play old hickory clubs without much offset, so I am going to try an i500 6-iron to start with. But at my club head speed I think that standard loft would be best.

 

We'll see.

I hated them. iBlades are far better in terms feel, performance, and forgiveness.

 

Again, this is all personal preference, but the i500’s are the equivalent of a cold lifeless dead body in terms of feel.

I have played Ping irons for many years and from my experience the i500 are soft if you hit the middle of the face, with toe hits feeling clinging. I played the i200s most of last year and on center strikes I would say the i500 offer just as soft of feel with a bit more powerful feel of the face. I have used both with Nippon shafts so this may have helped with the feel. Just my experience so far.

IMO they are a nice long iron replacement option (e.g. been pleased with the single i500 4 iron added to my bag)

 

if you formerly played anything blade or players CB the complete i500 set might feel/sound peculiar, and therefore totally unsatisfactory.

 

however, I think players coming from a larger GI cavity back iron looking for a more compact iron will think a complete of i500 are the bees knees. they do not have the point of reference of feel/sound that makes i500 seem out of the ordinary, they're used to firm faces.

I played Wishon 560MC for 3 years then 575MMC forged irons for 5+ years. GREAT feeling and performing forged irons. I had an opportunity to play the I500's for a few rounds in the north Louisiana wet winter and decided to purchase them when I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. I've not had the opportunity to play these above 65* yet and multiple rounds in the 40's, but the feel is what I expect on mishits with a smooth powerful feel on well struck shots. I have put the Pings in the bag with the goal of a more forgiving iron that will allow for me to continue to attempt to improve my scoring in spite of a neck injury which leaves my swing less consistent and weaker some days.

 

Even allowing for colder temps, the Ping I500's are at least a club longer. While I do not struggle to "get the ball well up" as TW would say, I find consistent high trajectory is all but automatic. I also notice that I play these better (longer and more consistent) with a firmer ball, ie: BXS instead of BRX or BRXS The distances were less dramatically different with the forged irons. I believe this is due to both the effects of a different shaft profile (DG105 S300) and slightly lower spin of the I500. (I have also been having similar results with my driver and FW)

 

Bottom line for me is I am really looking forward to playing these at 75 degrees or more.

It matters not what others call you, but what you answer to.

I've had them in the bag for 3 rounds now. Red dot 3-p with Modus 105x at +1". They are definitely not what I would consider " soft," but I don't mind the feel. They are definitely long compared to the MP18 blades I'm coming out of, especially as they get towards the middle and long end of the bag.

 

What I have noticed more than anything is that they are very consistent regardless of the swing i put on them. I hit a lot of knock downs into the Florida wind. In the past, I have taken a club or two extra. I don't have to with these. Knock downs fly the same distance, but with a lower trajectory. Makes club selection easier once you start to trust it.

 

No issues with stopping power. I hit a Max 4 iron down wind this morning that stopped within 10 feet of the ball Mark. Stock flight is very high, but it goes and it stops.

 

I don't need a 3 wood anymore with the 3 iron in the bag. They go about the same distance and then iron is much more consistent for me.

Speaking to the clanky sound, mine sound terrible off a mat with range balls. Think about how loud fairways and hybrids are off mats vs off the fairway. Mats and range balls are the condition in which most people are testing the i500s and are quickly turned off. It’s understandable.

 

On the course with a premium ball (I play TP5) they sound and feel good when struck solid and I’m completely satisfied with the performance. They don’t have a forged feel, because they aren’t, but they feel just as good as any other cast club.

Had these since day 1. Would say they do require an adjustment period but I'm very satisfied. Distance is comparable to a gi iron with very little offset and equal to or better forgiveness than pretty much any non-gi cb, and many gi cbs. Will remain in the bag all of this year for sure and possibly longer.

 

Im a moderate swing speed player but have difficulty with higher offset and thick soled irons. It's basically the ideal club to address those issues.

I have the I 200's and picked up the I500 4&5 for long irons and really very happy with them.

 

Not magic but if center face these they feel great and wow do they fly 8-10 yds better than the I200's on average.

 

Just ordered the 6 and I think I am good form there had the nippon 105s in both series.

 

I think they have great feel and one thing I have noted they also do a great job if you need a punch shot .

Played Ping for years until I discovered JPX 900s. Went with those until the i500s. When I got the i500s, they changed my game. I had never hit irons any better. They just gave me confidence due to the distance gains and height I was getting from the shots. I could work the ball but they more or less wanted to go straight which is not a bad thing They did not have the really bad left or right shot in them. Turf interaction was good. Forgiveness is there in spades for me. The low face shot is very harsh but it traveled better than most irons and did not get offline. For me the looks were the best all arounder I have looked down at. Eventually though the sound and feel wore on me. When I got a chance to snag a set of JPX 919 Forged I jumped. I held on to the i500s for a long while but eventually sold them. I now regret that and consider it a mistake. While I do love my 919s, there is not the same confidence I had with the i500s.

 

I was at PGA SS yesterday comparing the 2 with the same PX 6.0 shaft. Went through about a 45 minute session on their GC2 monitors. What I found was ball speeds were roughly the same. I was a consistent 122-123 with both. Distance was a tick longer with the i500s. Maybe 2 yards longer in carry overall. Spin was what surprised me. The i500s spun more on average. I was at 6200 across the whole set with the 919s at 6000. When I looked at my best shots, the 919s were a tick higher though. Descent angle was a bit better with the 919s hitting 47-48 and the i500s coming in at around 45. Overall you would think it came down to feel and looks. The 919s feel better but the i500s look better to my eye. I will say that when the i500 is pure, I think it feels better than the 919. Even so, throughout the whole process, I could just find the center of the club face much easier with the i500s. I am not sure why either. Maybe the sole grind works better for me. Now I am back in the market for a set. Going to wait until I hit the BST jackpot though and not spend the full monty.

Totally agree. On paper these irons shouldn’t work as well as they do. But just as I was telling someone a couple days ago. They spin more than anything in that category. Therefore you can control them. Yet as you said they do not seem to have a big miss in them either direction. And I bend them both ways so I’d know if they did. Very very neutral. Tried to quit them and can’t. Too much control.

Had my first round with these yesterday. Picked up a set shafted with modus 105 x which are flat out too light for me, and only SW to D-0.

 

I’m definitely going to have to reshaft but I had one of my better ballstriking days with my irons in a long time. I e struggled with the lefts due to a swing flaw I’ve been fighting and I just couldn’t take looking at the offset in my i200’s anymore.

 

These irons feel great when centered, not clicky at all. Overall I’m impressed with the launch and performance of these, but now I’m on the lookout for a heavier shaft option. I really don’t want anything to knock off spin so modus 125 x might be a good option as they have a similar profile to the 105x. Also thinking about x100 AMT or maybe going to s400. Also have a line on some PX LZ 7.0 125’s I might try. I have 7.0 130’s in my wedges and get along with those fine and really liked my 125 LZ 6.5’s in my i200’s.

Got another round under the belt today. It was cold out, around 40*. Normally I had a par 3 138 front edge to a front pin. Striped a PW which should be a 150 yard shot. Ball flew up in the air and came down about 15 yards short of the green. I couldn’t believe it. Maybe it caught some wind or something, but it was rather odd. Reading about the PW to 9 iron gapping problems some people have reported, I’m a little concerned.

 

I hit my glide gap wedge 135-140 so I might have a gap issue on my hands. I had the lofts checked after my round and PW was spot on 45* and the 9 iron was a tick weak at almost 41 vs the 40* advertised loft.

 

I’m gonna give it more time in better weather before I start tweaking. Just a little cause for concern right now.

Well, this thread is informative. If they feel good, they are good. if they don"t, they're not. Double blind, peer reviewed, objective......

 

 

 

NOT !! :beruo:

 

Test them with impact tape.

 

If you hit them middle and on the right groove they feel good. If you hit them high or toe side they clank. Easy to understand.

Definitely something I have seen as well on the PW and UW. Not as long as you but I can hit my 919 Forged PW/GW (2 degrees weaker) about 5 yards further. No problems with my 9 at all though. The gapping actually works for me but it is odd. It seems that on the more lofted clubs, the spring effect is either less or imparts too much height/spin and you lose a bit of distance.

Yes, for every iron I ever hit...however, some clank way better than others

Still Loving. Got a couple bent strong to close a gap, and they keep getting better. No clanks with ProV1s. Hard range balls, yup and inconsistent distances. On the course, no problem. The finish, still looking good.

 

Btw, for anyone that thinks one club is off, or doesn't "spring" as much...had the same problem. It was the lie angle and when it got changed, POW. More consistent bombing ensued.

 

I really like these, perform well, get through the turf (digger), consistent on misses. But...it's all preference at this point.

Yep. Which goes back to what I’ve preached. Strike. And I’ve said 100 times that these irons are the most sensitive for lie angle I’ve ever owned. I dialed them in over a months time.

Btw, for anyone that thinks one club is off, or doesn't "spring" as much...had the same problem. It was the lie angle and when it got changed, POW. More consistent bombing ensued.

Yep. Which goes back to what I've preached. Strike. And I've said 100 times that these irons are the most sensitive for lie angle I've ever owned. I dialed them in over a months time.

 

 

What are your lie angles?. im curious.

Well without going to my notes for exact degrees ( I’m not at the shop where my notes are ). Mine are 4 up of standard in the 6-pw and 3 up for 3-5. Also mine are 1/2 inch over standard length and I do swing pretty upright. ( tall ). Now I’ll also say there maybe a 1 degree bump one way or another. I tunes one iron at a time adjusting a degree at a time ( I bend them myself ) . And wrote the exact degree down. I don’t remember which irons varied a touch. But 3-4 upright is the ballpark answer.
