That would be stronger than the i500 and i525 that are 30.5* and 45* respectively for their 7-iron and PW lofts.  The current Power Spec loft for the 7-iron is 29*, but it’s 44* for PW.

Loft police here...

My i210 PW is 45*, same as i525. And now i530 is looking like 42*? G430 is 41*. What?!!

 

My friend plays G430 and king kongs his short irons compared to me. I tell him why but he keeps complaining he is too strong.

This iron looks pretty much like the i525 and the G710, with less offset. 

I think he’s making a joke about TM thinking they own the hollow body iron space, a la suing Costco for the Kirkland irons.

I have come to Love my i525's at least so far indoors on trackman.  IMHO anyone talking true feel on a hollow body iron is just so personal.  plus if your playing this model your not hear for the feel, i want performance and looks! that is why i picked the 525.  i will admit the first few times i hit them it was rough, but when those long irons fly like nothing i have hit before and the carry distance is crazy good and look great with minimal offset! SOLD.  Im a picker and i dont feel i have been punished any more than the 790's i had on low strikes.

How did we ever manage to play the game back in the days before every golf club had a screw in it?

 

I equate those days to when medicine used leeches, when children rode (unrestrained) in the backs of pickup trucks, and football was played using hemets without facemasks.

 

Thank God we survived those dark days.

 

They already exist. Gotta keep pushing the envelope as an engineering company. 

 

How did people ever manage to play the game with hickories in a burlap sack?  What is so wrong with there being a screw on the toe if it materially increases MOI?

I'm definitely interested in these.  Will hopefully try them at PING HQ next week when I go.  Only problem is that I'd have to combo them into the i230 on short irons because even retro spec'ed there would be a huge gap between PW and my GW at 49 degrees.

looks like the last of Mike Nicolette’s DNA at Ping.  Very nice looking to me, but I like all of Ping’s stuff.

I'll be curious to see where the CG is on this one.

The i500s and i525's had a higher CG and on the Maltby ratings they were very low on MPF because of that.  I know MPF ratings don't mean a whole hill of beans but the CG location is measurable number.  I read on the Ping site that they lowered the CG in this one.  Wonder how much.  

Power With Feel

A lower CG is more aligned with where impact occurs, and a polymer precisely placed in the head improves feel and sound while maximizing face bending and ball speed. Tungsten toe screw and shaft tip weights for swingweight fine-tuning.
