PING i59 iron spy image I found on Insta and Reddit. Looks amazing!

People need to stop complaining so much about these supply issues on this thread.    If you have an issue, email PING directly and complain to them. Give them advice, since people here seem

1020 carbon 1-piece forged CB, in the exact shape of the s55. SGI forgiveness all across the face with the feel of srixons/mizunos. Less than $799 with any shaft. And two free Masters tickets.

Guys, the i500s are getting replaced with i525s. I thought that was pretty well established?

Why have why have fitters already pulled the i500 before we’ve even seen 525 picture? I trust everybody’s information is correct it makes sense, just the execution of everything seems odd

That usually means they are low on heads and keeping the ones they have for replacements.

Not true. You'll see next month. 

I would be mega surprised. My guy at Ping usually knows what’s up so unless half the company is on a different timeline or stuff changed A LOT in the last 30 days, not sure how that would be possible.

You haven't followed Ping long enough… things are on their timeline.

Interestingly enough, I do some work with Ping in my professional life. I don’t ask them about any of this stuff though 😂

I was told by the guy at my local shop that Ping had a shipping crate with $50M worth of product drop off a freighter down the ocean a few months ago. So I assume this has significantly pushed back their timelines. Wouldn't be surprised if this affected their decision on when to replace the current line. 

 

In any case, looking forward to the i210 replacement pics!

Sorry, not true. i59 replace i210. i525 will replace the i500. i59 will be slightly more compact than i210. iblade will be phased out. 

This seems like the logical thing to me too.  Especially if i525 is better feeling/sounding. There’s no need in a better i500 version and anther i210.  They look too similar.  If the i525 feels like the 210.  Then mash them together and call it done.  Then give the iblade crowd that combos i210 long irons the i59.   And the blueprint short irons guys now have a good combo for long irons.  I59.  Seamless.

The problem is every hollow body club performs noticeably different than an i210 type iron. There are numerous pros playing i210s but I don't know of a single one playing i500. So if they are looking to streamline to maximize profits it makes sense to do what you have outlined. If they truly want to continue to help all golfers Play Their Best they will always have an i210 style iron.

For ping yes.  But pxg has many pros playing their hollow irons.  I’d say the ping guys would too if they caught up in terms of feel.  
 

and I played i500 for 6-8 months when they came out.  So I’m not just guessing on the feel / playability part.   The long irons feel horrible.  The 7-pw wasn’t bad from the middle of the face.

Makes sense, in theory. Only thing is the photos we have w iblades and i59, the i59 look slightly thinner than or at most same size as iblade. that would make i59 a lot smaller than i210. which would be a weird departure for ping to change i210 thatvmuch.

 

the idea of hollow/filled long irons in i59 is interesting. the reason we have photos of iblade/i59 together is that hovland was playing iblade long irons. if i59 is hollow, perhaps that is the reason (he’s also played iblade long irons in the past so he also just might like them too of course)

No I’m Saying i525 replaces i500 snd i210.  And i59 replaces iblade.  You can then combo up or down with i59 to blueprint or i525.  I don’t think the i59 is hollow at all.

there is a new thread of the i59's on tour and they are the same size or slightly smaller than iblade so they are it's replacement. I think we just need to see how they are constructed in the long irons. 

You guys are forgetting about pings findings recently on smaller club heads.  With the blueprint, and glide forged.  Then they slimmed  the g425 .....downsizing the 210 replacement wouldn’t be a shock or departure from recent path.

im starting to think they are just like a bigger footprint blueprint to replace the iblade and are all solid but they do have the lie angle notch so that is throwing me off that they aren’t completely forged and are multi material heads.

Very well could be. I just think the speculation is two sided and either  side  is just as likely to be correct.  
 

I may get a chance to talk to the ping rep today or tomorrow..... I’ll know after that.

yea, it's all speculation at this point. It is kind of a confusing release and until Ping confirms no one will really know. However, with that lie angle notch I'm pretty sure atleast some of the irons if not all are multi material with a forged face and steel body like the i500 which also has the lie angle notch to help bend harder steel heads.
