Ping i525???

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any info, or seen the i525 iron. I’m def buying a new set of irons this year, but I don’t want to jump the gun if these are indeed coming in a couple months.

I have no idea what they are saying...  but there is some info about the i525.  I hope the final version does NOT look like those in the video...  I never hit an i500 but think they are a good looking, clean head...

What the heck is that thing on the back of the i525 club below the word "PING?"  Never seen anything like that on an iron before.

 

Also, why does the Japan market always get the new clubs first?

I’m pretty sure that’s a photoshop and it may have even originated here but I can’t remember for sure.  Someone will know better than I do, but I can promise you that’s not an iron Ping is making.  

Yep, that pic has been floating around here in the forums before. Horrendous looking

They are saying that Ping makes the ugliest clubs in the world.

I was able to confirm that they are being released this summer and will ship mid August.

Man, I hope you're right!  I've been using, and love, the i500's, but I was told that there would not be an update of that club at all.  That was secondhand from a club pro with a cart account thru his Ping rep, so it sounded pretty reliable, but I hope it wasn't.

I assure you it’s accurate. Fitting heads late July early August, and shipping end of August.

That'll be great.  I'm ready to do a fitting, but I'm waiting until Ping and Titleist come out with their new stuff.  The i500, at least to me, is like the i5's and the i20's; the best of both worlds between a player's iron and a GI iron.  And I have a LOT of confidence in Ping's track record with second-generations of irons.

That is absolutely not accurate. That photo is not the 525.

I showed this to my buddy... he laughed and said the i525 looks nothing like this...

This is ME! In this video:

1) I referenced theequipmentjunkie's & golfalot's instagram posts about i59 last week.

2) I also found the picture of i525ish iron on GolfWRX in last year (December?). I also found trade mark of i525 in the database of US patent&trademark office. I also mentioned that this picture may be fake.

So, I don't have any more information than you do. Sorry for disappointing you.

It’s safe to assume these will release the same time as the i59, right? Why so little info then?

If Ping follows their normal tactic, you will see them in bags the week before The Open, so around July 15th or so.

No one plays i500 though? So probably shouldn't expect i525 in play?

August 2022 though. That’s when they anticipate catching up with all of their back orders! 🤣🤣🤣

Def ready for the supply chain issues to get back to normal. It’s hurting so many industries right now.

Such a weird release cycle? For any cold weather climate, the season is basically over? you're basically buying your 2022 set up and getting a few fall rounds in

Yeah, I never understood that timing but Ping have always done that way lately. I'm starting to get nervous because my contact still has not seen ther i525. I hope they are still planning on releasing it...

I hope so as well.  FWIW, I'll repeat what I heard in April, though it is secondhand.  Club pro with a Ping cart account was told by his Ping rep that there would be no i500 update/new version.
