In order:

 

1. i210

2. iblade.

3. I-59

3. Every other ping model since 2017.

 

obviously totally just my opinion.

 

the i210 and iblade are probably the standouts. Maybe i59, but most people seem to still prefer the s55.

 

The G series is the g series in the last 5 years. You love it or you don’t.


i500 and i525 are meh to me. I love ping, but I would probably look elsewhere for the hollow players distance.

 

YMMV.

Love the i210s — they’re easily the answer here, in my opinion.

 

I really liked the i59s, too, but not as much as the i210s, and I think their price point maybe has meant a lot of people didn’t even end up trying them.

 

G-series irons are fine too. If you’re in that segment of the market, the last few years it’s been the latest G irons vs. the latest Hot Metals for the top of the pecking order, in my opinion.

210's and 200's are virtually identical in look and feel/performance and are a fantastic clubs outright. I would say the Blueprint/i500's are the best irons Ping has produced in the last 5 years due to being forged blade type irons, which is a huge departure from Ping as a company. Granted, the i500's aren't fully forged but preform like a true blade and for an investment cast company to listen to their touring pros and better Am's producing these are quite amazing and probably the best departure from the norm for them. 

 

Personally, I still love the Eye 2's and depending on when you bought them, they could be 5 years old to the user? LOL

I was a huge Mizuno fan until playing the i210 irons.  I don't know what it is, but they found a way to make a great looking iron that is really hard to hit a bad shot with.  My thins somehow still end up not far from where I wanted to end up anyway and the feeling is still great.  They were a few hundred less than other "premium" clubs when I got them and the hydro pearl is proven to work.  If you want more testimony to how great they are, look at how many pros have kept them in the bag since they came out.  Not just a great Ping iron, but a top 5 iron the last 10 years regardless of category or handicap.

I’ve played Pings since 1982 and have had several sets. I’m not a good enough player to play the i series but I had good success with G30, G400 and now G425. While I really like my current set, I’m not sure they’re any better than the G400’s.

My head says i210s but the heart has to say Blueprints. Blueprints are just such a brilliant looking club that will make you look far less than brilliant if you aren't on your game.

My WITB:
PING G400 Max 9* - Project X Hzrdus Blue RDX 🇺🇸 LE 60 6.0

TaylorMade SIM 15* - Mitsubishi Diamana Thump 75 S

PING G425 Max 20.5* - Graphite Design Tour AD VR 8 S or PING G410 Hybrid 20.5* - LA Golf A-Series 85 4 Mid

PING i210 (4-PW) - Project X LZ 5.5

Cleveland RTX Zipcore Tour Rack 52* Mid  - Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Cleveland RTX Zipcore Tour Rack 56* Full - Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Vokey SM4 TVD-60L 60* (at 59*) M Grind - Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Probably Blueprints and i210.  Although 210 just didn't work for me, but the following must not be ignored.

 

I'd argue the i500 is up there...why?  Hard to ignore their looks and performance.  Sound and feel?  Yeah, I can see how they didn't check those boxes.  On the course, consistent, long, forgiving, workable, and the confidence of a "higher number" iron for a longer shot is hard to argue.  

 

Haven't played the GI/SGI but the new tech using maraging steel and forging is stout.   And the new hydropearl holds up pretty good.  

 

I525 are pretty slick too...improving upon a solid set.

What irons do you like better? 

 

My current gamers; JPX-921 Forged.  In just the current generation of irons, I'd bag the 223, 225, and ZX7 before the 210s. 

 

The only Ping clubs that top my list are their drivers...I'm due to replace my 6 year-old M1, and the 425 Max is calling my name.
