I dabbled here and there trying a few different irons at our club fitting days at the club over the past few years. Liked the i210 irons very much. After some research and contemplation I went through a fitting with i500 irons. Head pro put me on the scope which was interesting. I've been playing the JPX900 Forged for at least a few years. As my swing evolved I found I was hitting them higher and higher. Desired a lower trajectory. Compared to my Mizunos we found the i500s lower, about a club longer and certainly with a smaller dispersion. Anybody else play these? And, any idea what the lead time is from Ping these days? These should help me kick off my retirement well...😉

500s are junk, get the 210s

I played them for the last 6 months or so.  They performed well for me.  The feel leaves something to be desired though.  I really liked the look at address and found them to be good clubs, although s

Hit them off firm lies as a test ... they are looooooooow soon heads and not great on slightly thin passes

 

i only had the 6i fwiw

 

favorite looking set of Ping, wish their size had s55 feel and performance

I played the I500s for a year.  Actually thought they were a solid club and I didn’t have a problem with the feel of the clubs, which many had.  Strong lofts, long distances, but still good trajectory.  And they do look sweet.

i500??? shouldnt we be at i750 already??? I personally think they are a nice looking iron... they are probably easier to hit then most say they are. I find ping irons to be on the bigger side. The i210 is a players iron that to mee looks like a small gi iron nothing about it scares me. The 500 tho ive heard has durability issues... ive heard after a round they look like they have 100 rounds on them... ive also heard they have fixed that but who knows 🤷... imo theres probably better out there but thats as far as i know about them or ping. Obviously ping is a great company just my observations.

I got fit for the I500’s back in March. I hated the feel and sound. The mis hits were punishing . I sold them and got fit by my club pro for the I210’s. I could not be happier. Feel is like forged and I love the ball flight.

Had em since the day they came out.  No durability issues for me, but it has happened to others.  Don't mind the sound/feel, but when you mishit, you'll know.  And likely most people around you as well...lol...forgiving to a degree, but make no mistake, players iron. The long irons dont get smaller and smaller on the way up, but they still require a solid, downward strike.   From what I've read over the years, sweepers don't seem to hit them as well, but as a trench digger I can't hit the 210's, go figure.  Loved my S55, and still have them..but these are very different.  I honestly don't feel much difference in the two on solid strikes... definitely on misses.  And dear lord...cheap range balls, no go.  If I was a range rat, I don't know that I'd play these.

Interesting. I relied on our head pro, whatever I could read and mostly on how they performed when I swung them. They are no more harsh than my Mizunos on a mishit. And...a mishit is a mishit for me. I either hit it like butter or really splay it. Haha. These sounded fine, felt fine. Looked fantastic at address. Should be fun.
