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.

PING will be just fine. They are an engineering company first and golf club company second. Almost like a hobby for them. No shareholders to please either. They can do whatever they want. 

 

Everyone on here talks a big game but as soon as they are released, everyone on here will be handing over their next "x" amount of paychecks to get them.

No company can “do what they want”…the whole point of any business is happy customers and money.

Companies care about profits first. That includes making you happy 2nd. 
 

I wouldn’t doubt Ping has the ability to sit back and wait a bit. When all the shipping/port delays clean up and labor issues reside, they’ll be back to normal. Even if they could get supplies stateside, who knows if they’ll get the labor to assemble clubs timely.
 

Inflation is retarded right now on everything, profitable business are passing the buck to us. Thank Ping for not expediting releases, they would price themselves out of the market.

also everything PING makes forged is at the top end of the price range

As for price (I don’t honestly know), I would guess on the high side mainly due to the fact that mostly anything/everything needed ti make a golf club has price increases.  And, simply that the cost of “metal-anything” has increased 25-59% from this time last year . 

...actually it's Project X "LS".

Has anyone hit them yet? Went to Ping Japan site, very interested in what the aluminum insert inside the hollow body does. I trust Ping and their engineered, just ready to hit it and see if it feels good. In the looks dept. I think it’s the best looking club they have ever made. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to hit it this weekend,

Does ping not have employees or other stakeholders to worry about? 

No business can just do “whatever they want” and expect to stay in business long 


Now they are (reportedly) bringing out a long delayed iron at extreme pricing levels. Possibly not even releasing in North America first. 

Interesting strategy

This has been discussed in great length on another thread. PING first and foremost is an engineering company. Their golf clubs is a smaller business of a much larger company.

 

1.  There are no stakeholders - they are not publicly traded;

2. They release what they want when they want and for how much they want;

3. They follow their own model and do not succumb to outside pressures from competitors;

 

They did it with the G425 line so it's not a new strategy and look how well that worked out for them. Backordered for weeks/months. 

 

The point is, PING can do whatever want and their loyalists will fork over their money once it is available.

They are a family owned business who have tremendously loyal employees. They do not have stakeholders. Ask any of their employees, they are like a family.

True to a very certain extent. Not like their hasn't been bumps along the years though.

 

Unfortunately, I don't see the newer Generations quite like the OG's, in regards to loyalty 

 

The old guys though.....they[we] are fiercely loyal.

Loyal Ping fan here, but also logical.  While I have been looking forward to having these replace my s55, I can’t justify buying it at that price point.  There are many new releases (Titleist and TM) and even some from a year or two ago (PXG Gen 3) that will likely perform as good as what the i59 may offer against the competition.
