Man, I can remember the days of the 10 year run of the Eye 2 and now people are upset if a company build an iron so good its hard to improve it. How the world has changed.....lol.

 

I feel like Ping has done that several times when they really make a winner.  Like I had a set of the i200's and they replaced them with the i210's fairly quickly, but like others have said, the i210's are on year 3 or so.

 

I personally love it, because irons are the hardest thing for me to replace and always the most expensive.  I love buying a set of irons and knowing they'll be "the current set" for a few years.  Still gaming the i500's because I just love them.

So many on here think their opinion mirrors that of the general golfing public. 

Sometimes I giggle when I read these because in about 99+% of the people looking to get fit into [FILL IN THE BLANK], they don't ask ANY of the questions and are open enough to get fit and judge for themselves.  The general golfing public doesn't get into the weeds like we do and is generally happy with what they are fit into because, well, they were fit into it!

I've been here since 2005 when this site was just tumbleweeds.  I'm still amazed it's grown like it has!

back to the subject, any word on 210 replacements ?

Not even a whisper from what I'm hearing so far.  We're still trying to fill orders of the originals!

Why don't we get a life?!?!?

 

HaHa, Been here before my July 2005 signature says because I changed my handle and they took away my earlier join date, I have stepped away from golf, this site many times but it is a happy refuge from our 24 hour news cycle ('nuff said).We are "old timers" here. In that span I have had a lot of fun buying, selling, dreaming and regretting some of my bag moves! Anyway, Looking to order the G425 irons in a Powerspec (getting old sucks!)

Is the consensus 50/50 on iBlade vs 210 replacement, but agree on Summer 2021 timing?

 

The only info I recently got is shaky at best, as the info is one of those "friend of a friend" rumors.

 

But, played a tourney over the weekend and my playing partner said he spoke with his "guy" and was told July release for new player's irons (not specific on the actual series)

 

He then spoke to his other, separate "guy" and told him he heard new irons coming in July. The response was "who told you and how did you know?" So the other "guy" confirmed July.

 

So nothing even close to concrete, but it's something.

And in summary, several of us believe the July 2021 release will be i59, replacing iBlade. This also means that the 210 is unlikely to see any sort of update until Jan 2022.

 

And why would it?

But is it confirmed no i500 replacement as well? Loved the look of them, just couldn’t get over the feel.

Makes you wonder if Ping are going to combine the iBlade and i210 into one model such as the i59..  Makes sense as to why there is no i225 trademark.

That was actually discussed quite a bit, as it kinda makes no sense for PING: i210 is far and away their most popolar irons on the ladies tour, while iBlade is dominant on the male tours, where i210 is only 20% (dont remember actual numbers) and Blueprint has some usage as well.

I think it would be strange to take away either one for the other and a "compromise" between the lines might please neither group

Holy cow, I'm June 9, 2005.  I liked when they used to have which member number you were on the site.  I think I was like 1,506 or something.

New PING irons in the 8/1-9/1 range.

 

They will replace the i210, i500 and possibly the iBlade.

To be clear... That is 2 separate products or morphing them into 1?

 

Late release cycle is frustrating. Want new irons. Want to do a fitting in March / April so they are ready for the bulk of the season. Tough to buy an i200 or i500 when new ones are coming
