Ping I210 Long Term Reviews - Anyone?

> I currently have iBlades in the bag which I absolutely love. I keep getting the urge to give the i210's a go and worry that I'll regret it. I just don't know if the i210's will be that much more forgiving. I struggle sometimes with the iBlade 4 iron, but when I do, it's usually not exclusive to that particular iron. It's usually my swing as a whole.

 

Ill be honest the I210 4 iron is a joke to hit. Easier than the AP2 for sure. The AP2 felt better but results are results.

If one puts any stock in Maltby MPF, the Blueprint is actually easier to hit than the i210. The BP has a lower COG, rear COG is about the same. i210 does have higher MOi, which I don’t care about on i

@Argonne69 @Nixhex524 @karstens_ghost - Appreciate the input, guys. Definitely looking to give these a try to see for myself. Might try to go hit a demo this week if I can find one.

Shot a 75 today with new i210. Hit some great shots and a few crappy ones. Had a swing issue first 9 that was making me hook all my shots. Found i210 easy to work. Best example was 132 yards to fl

Just ordered a set of these. Kind of wanted to go iBlade but my i200 with KBS were so good for me. Had to give them a go. I felt like I was scaring the flag every mid to short iron with my Pings and I'm still trying to adjust to my AP2 and now CB combo journey. Can't wait to get them to range and see if I can't find the old magic.

finally pulled the trigger on a set of i210's and have been loving them so far. the DG 120 S300 is a much better shaft for me (coming from Ctaper 130x). Great feel and height. I look forward to playing these more and more

It definitely is. I was looking to go to x100's but my contact was more consistent with the 120 S300's for some reason. Definitely like the new shafts better, much better flight.

Still playing mine, but I feel like the soles dont cut through turf as good as my CF16 Apex Pros or old 716 AP2... I feel like the i210 get hung up on me. They are incredibly soft though.. and look great at address.

Have had the i210s for 8 months now, almost a record since joining WRX, second only to the i200s i played for almost 18 months. Love that they feel a tad softer but other than that have found little difference. Perhaps the best thing about the 210s is that I now have them being bent to retro spec and adding a 3 iron.

Had them for about a month. Great irons. Soft, forgiving but workable, and consistent as all get out. No real distance gain from my last set, but the consistency and feel more than makes up for that.

Came back to the i210 after a few months with the Wilson v6. I am able to produce my desired shot shape and trajectory with greater consistency. I am punished less on my misses too.

 

Trying to decide if I want to go from the dg s300 120s to the standard PX 6.0. Anyone have these with PX 6.0?

Had my first round with the G410 crossover 3i yesterday. New favorite club off the tee next to the G410 3w. The club smashes the ball off the face like a bullet. I tried the 2i & 3i at the store and decided to get the 3i to fill my gaps better, and it was easier to hit of the mats. But yesterdays test on the course made me build confidence off the tee...sooo easy and forgiving. Now I'm tempted to pick up the 2i and see what i can do off the tee box with that thing. Such a fun club to swing and watch the ball flight.

PX 6.0 is a lot stiffer. 5.5 standard is more comparable. If you want a fair bit less spin and a flatter flight it could be an option but VERY different shafts.

Thanks. Is that your experience in general or with the i210 specifically? I’ve played px6.0 in a few sets.

How was it off the deck or do you not tee up your iron shots? I can't tee up an iron so I'm always off the deck with everything except driver. If it's not very good off the deck or out of rough I may go 4i in i210.

 

Also, anyone go the retro spec route? I'm coming from AP2 and Miura CB57 so I just want my numbers to be consistent, but the increase in bounce makes me a bit nervous. With the retro spec I believe bounce would be 4-5* more per club with the i210.

It's pretty easy off the deck, short of a true hybrid. I did try it out of some juicy rough, and it surprised me how well popped the ball out. *Note, this is my first ever DI, and the honeymoon phase is at it's peek, so...i'll see how it fairs in future rounds.

I have had mine about 2 months now, orange dot Dynamic Gold S300. I have been playing this setup with Ping since 2005. The i210 was a 1/4” longer than my previous pings, that took a little adjustment but overall I am happy. I am not one to work the ball a lot but with these I can do that when needed. What I find best about these is it’s easy to flight them, up and down and the feel is great.

I have the 4 crossover. It gaps pretty well with the power spec 5 iron. It has about 10-12 yards gap for me. I’m considering bending the loft to 22 to get closer to 15 yards gap. I love hitting it though. It sounds like a 3 wood and flies so high, but penetrating.

So far, they’re laughably good. Distance control, forgiveness, everything.

Went to my fitting, and ordered the i210 4-U w/ AWT 2.0 stiff. Wasn't planning on going with a 4-iron, but I still hit my i3 O-Size 4-iron decent, and never have been as consistent with a hybrid. Unfortunately, or fortunately, they're out of the Glide 2.0 Stealth, so I'll be ordering the 3.0 wedges in a few weeks!

Just got a set 4-PW, black dot, all standard with dg 120 s300 shafts. I’m coming from a set of high end jdm so-called neo blades, PRGR’s (Pro Gear). The prgr set replaced a set of MP-14’s, and before that it was WS blades. So, coming from all forged, blade or near blade clubs for the past 40 years.

 

These clubs are nearly as soft as my last forged set, and the distance is nearly the same, surprisingly. I expected more distance, and I did get some on poorly hot shots, off of the toe side mainly. I’ve played a 2* flat lie for the last 20 years but decided to keep these standard. As expected I’m finding myself left a bit, maybe as much as about 5 yards on a flushed 6 iron. The shafts feel heavier than my last set, which had Nippon M-43 Spec shafts, and stiffer, which is also an adjustment of course. I’m thinking I will adjust my swing rather than flattening my lie angles, as I have a tendency to swing a bit outside in and this is an opportunity to improve swing path. I’m not a fan of the progressive offset. Don’t like the offset on the 4 and 5 irons, too much. I don’t feel like I can easily fade these, which I like to do sometimes. I also need to see how well I can punch and flight these down, and generally work these clubs. So far they do not seem as workable as I am used to.

 

I do like these clubs a lot and will stick with them to see if I can get excellent results and feel. If not I’ll try adjusting. It is apparent they are high quality irons, imho. Right now it’s still early, though. Will report back.
