Ping i59


Recommended Posts

I do nuke the i500 long irons.  I can always be patient and see what the early spring offerings are and combo something.  I'd the 525 rumors are true...other than S55 never hit a ping iron better than i500. Can't hit range balls with them, but on the course, feel good unless you miss.

Release in stores is September 2nd

$250 per club confirmed via Roger Dunn Golf Shop ($1750 for 4-PW)

That T100 is not looking to ridiculously small - I like it.

Is the toe extremely blocky or is it just the angle of the pictures?

It’s definitely less rounded than the T100, but I would say in line with the shape of iBlades or Blueprints.

What’s the feel like on that shaft?  Stout?

It is. It is very stable. I had never heard of it but got fitted into it with a set of Callaway’s I have. While it’s a good fit for me. I’m not sure I’m convinced low launch/low spin is what I’m shooting for. I prefer a shaft that is good on my “off” days. My normal gamers are c-taper.

Oh yippee… second rate Recoils. Not surprised, just disappointed. They don't even make an X in 780es, and they play soft to begin with. I hope they pair well, but damn.

I was internally swearing as well

 

780 es smac.....you gotta be kidding me

 

I guess the truth to Ping have fits over Recoil 110 carry some weight.    Or lack thereof

Well...maybe they will at least have these 3 year old shafts in stock and the delivery date for pre order won't jump to Jan 2022 1 minute after launch.. 😆

I think UST makes ping’s tour wood and hybrid shaft. Makes sense they would do recoils as a stock option. 
 

The recoil is a solid performer on the srixon utility. Always hit that club well. 

 

 

Some of the recoil shafts are excellent, if a bit spinny. These particular 780es are not for the level of player that generally is after clubs like these. They're an OEM hi-volume option from UST.

 

Imagine they had offered one of the others like MMT, or the KBS option, or anything that's one of those "plays like steel" shafts… we'd all be going crazy right now.

 

I know it's a cost thing, and I'm sure they have a good reason for all of this, but it's likely now $335/iron to get something like an i59 with MMT shaft and MCC+4 grip.

 

I can pay that, but not everyone is going to go crazy for that. And frankly, I'm probably going to play by blueprints for a good long time now that this is the case. If these guys are remarkable, might get a 5 & 6 iron, but frankly, would rather get that in i210.

 

I imagine these are going to be excellent heads, but Ping isn't a component dealer.

It's the weight.....2fifty a club & you get 84g and like it or nothing else

Project X LZ still an option, or upcharge? That might be the difference maker between these and T100 for me (already at $250 a club with i59)

Great point. I never tried the Recoil with smackie wrapie or whatever they call it. I still prefer x100s, but I’d like to try the recoil Darts or MMT in a heavy option.
 

I’m going to hit the i59 this fall, but the new mizunos this fall are calling my name.

      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date.

      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?
      2. Handicap?
      3. What is your current putter?
      4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter?
      5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter?
      6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos?
       
      That's it! @labgolf and GolfWRX will choose the testers in about 2 weeks! This testing event is for good-standing members in the USA only!
