Just a heads up. Expect major delays from PING. Apparently they are struggling to get heads in because a factory is Asia shut down. 

I heard that in the near future after they get the factory back up and running, there's going to be a cargo ship sink in the pacific with their entire stock on board thus causing further delays.

Yep, a letter from John K last week, mentioned this and he was very specific in not mentioning any timeframes or specific problems, but reading between the lines, it sounded pretty bleak.

So “Made in America” is no longer a thing with the company who has bragged about that for decades?

 

That hasn't been the case for at least a decade and its been at least that long since they claimed it to be true.

I ordered a custom G425 max from will peoples last Tuesday and had it in hand Friday afternoon. 

 

I am definitely not pre-ordering a $1700 set of irons and waiting 6 months for them.

Just to back this up, my G425 Max order went thru PGASS on the 5th and and I got an email today saying it had been shipped, so roughly two weeks on the driver (I did call Ping before I ordered at PGASS to make sure I got shaft/grips that weren't backordered). My takeaway from that is that any delays at this point are less on Ping's assembly side in AZ and more about the supply chain side of components (or about about Ping's China operations)

Got to hit a fitting head today. 

 

Looks are incredible. Offset is similar to T100 and minimal. Size on the 6 iron was compact. Sound was very good from what I could tell in the hitting bay. Feel is great, but still more to be told once hit outside on grass.

Any forgiveness comps?  It's compact so not expecting much but it is Ping and and i Series iron so didn't know if Ping was able to sneak in some of their secret sauce.

I hit about 50 shots with it. I'd put it with the T100 which I have been playing for about 6 months. The mishits didn't feel terrible which was nice. I would say for the compact size of this head, it is going to be forgiving. These are not an i500 replacement. Clearly looks to be iBlade category.

 

EDIT** I love the shape of Ping iron heads. So I may be a bit bias as it suits my eye.

good to hear. cant wait til we get our fitting head. Did you take any pics of the head? Curious to know the sole width compared to the Blueprints.

That would have been smart of me...but no I didn't. I was in for a wood/hybrid fitting and it arrived via UPS as I was there. The guy was really cool and let me hit it. I've hit and help the blueprints a bit and the sole is wider, but not by a ton. The head overall is like a slightly larger sized blueprint. Not sure how this translates to both ends of the iron set though as far as progression goes.

The woods are working to roughly 2 week delivery but irons have been hit badly ...certain lines are not expected to ship for new orders here in the UK until January...also some putter models are now "discontinued" as they have basically run out of stock for 2021

 

On a similar theme the main reason the Titleist T 2021 series was released earlier than expected was principally down to Titleist selling out of the old models...this is an industry wide problem but Ping in particular have been hit badly
