I ordered my i20 irons after a ping fitting and went for 3-W black dot, DG S300 and I hit them awesome.

Im in the UK and ordered these on 13th April, was initially told 1 week, just called them today as I havent had a call and apparently ping have had trouble with some of the heads so the order has been delayed. Ping UK are getting their stock in next week so will be 11th May latest.

I wonder what the real issue really is here. Does anyone have any idea's?

I made the mistake of buying a thinner than standard grip(red), even though I've used standard for 40 years. Just stupid on my part, especially so, considering that my miss was already left. Getting new grips for them tonight and looking forward to seeing the difference in feel.

Take a Dremel to the faces, they'll look great.

 

If it's that important, send them to me and I'll do it. It only takes 2-3 minutes per club!

 

 

 

Hi Sir, what attachmnet would you use to do this?

 

Pic if possible or link to one on the web.

Looks good......did it affect the milling on the face at all?

Not that I'm aware of. It just took that dark finish off the face. The stuff was super easy to get off with the dremel.

Thats is Sir, thanks for posting - thinking of doing this to my S56's as they have a similar finish to the i20's

I think yours look great - better than the original finish that just wears straight off making the clubs look shabby.

I've had my i20's for enough rounds now that I'm really comfortable with them. Yesterday, I beat my PB by a full 3 strokes to shoot a 77. Good for this 14 handicapper. :) I do agree that the 5 iron looks slightly weird at address, but so does my hybrid. I'll get used to it.

Here is why I picked the i20's:

I stepped on to the 15th tee, a short par 4 with a dead left dogleg across a creek. I decided to hit 4-iron to get some work in with my new irons.

First shot kind of "clanked" hit on the face and a little to the heel.

Second ball another clanker high on the face and inside, but down the fairway.

Last ball nice high draw ever so slightly off the toe.

Normally, that would be two short and one a little short of normal distance.

Actual with the i20...all three in the fairway a few yards apart about 215 yds from the tee!

Just what I was looking for -- feedback without the penalty!

(No magic, I've hit bad shots with the i20's that got bad results -- fat shots don't go anywhere no matter what club you use. Thin shots however, turn out better than they should with these. I'm shallowing out my plane accordingly...)

Why didn't you just play with them and wear the dark finish off eventually? and if it looks bad after that, then dremel it off?

I played with them over a month and it was getting pretty bad. No way I'd ever get all the dark finish off..

Plus, they look a ton better now.

Gotcha thanks, I've only had a chance to play 4 rounds with mine so far so I'll have to wait and see how the finish holds up.

I think a lot of it depends on the type of courses you play.. From what I understand, sand speeds up the wear on the faces..

good to hear this
ordered mine about 6 days ago from a GT too, so i am HOPING they show up by the end of the week, as this will be 10 biz days for me
wasnt 100% sold on them after i bought them

but have decided to give them a whirl, as you can barely find a negative comment from anyone on them
they MUST be "that good"

Ordered mine with KBS C-Taper X soft stepped twice. Unfortunately they still aren't here yet, and my 6 iron is on backorder. Ping must be churning out ungodly amounts of these guys. Anybody else go with the C-Taper?

I actually got mine yesterday. 11 business days. Look great except that a couple grips aren't centered. Is this an easy fix for a club maker?

[size="3"]Appears to be more common than you would think, just use air and straighten them up, also had a set in with shaft bands really poorly applied a couple were visual at address they were that far round, and poorly stuck down which resulted in corners peeling after a couple of weeks, but in fairness to Ping problem was [/size][size=2]rectified without any problems, Steve[/size]

I got mine yesterday. Ended up with red dot 4-w,u wedge and lob wedge. The jury is still out on them. They are definitely no longer than my mp29s maybe about a 1/2 club shorter. I am playing in a tournament tomorrow but not sure if I a m going to put them in play. Will report back after I have some more time with them. If they don't work out I will be putting the irons and possibly i20 driver on BST.

They have stronger lofts than your 29's. If you're not hitting the i20's as long as, if not longer than, your 29's then something isn't right. Could be your shafts.
[/quote]

not only that they are longer based on weighting and materials used. I hit my i20's a full club and 1/4th longer than my MP-59's.

Hmmmm. Got my set, played one round, washed them, and noticed that the paint on the number "6" had come off in spots on the 6 iron. No scratches on the club, so it wasn't from anything I hit, and the water I used to wash them, as I have done over the years, was only warm.

Just kind of annoying that your brand new set looks a year old after one round...

When I hit my AP2 710 series on the range 2 years ago for the first time, the paint actually popped out of the 7 and pitching wedge completely. It didn't scratch out but the paint popped out like a muffin out of a tin.

And I don't think that makes your 6 iron look like a year old club.

I was fit by Cool Clubs on the 3rd and the order goes in tomorrow. It was between these and the AP2s but the numbers don't lie. I hit the I20s a bit better and they felt better to top it off.

I have played two rounds with my I20 ,standard loft lie and length,fitted with 5.5 project x ping full cord grips .First impresions were how light they are (have played forged mizunos for years).Swing weight came out at d0 which wasnt a surprise .They feel very soft on contact and very forgiving but cant get my head around how light they feel ,may experiment with lead tape but why should i spoil the cosmetic looks .Hit them at the range along side a mp33 and flight a little higher on i20 but i20 1/2 a club further when realy compressed .Played on the course and hit some realy nice shots but its just the weight thats got me beat ,any ideas or help without splatting lead on them Still not 100 per cent happy lookin around at the moment that tells you something
