  6. Golfspy Bones Ping i200 Iron Review Performance I will start off my by saying that I do not like the range. I do not like range balls….I do not like pounding balls with no purpose….I do not like my swing on the range….I do not like wasting my time on the range, when I could be playing. Therefore my review is going to be about where it counts……on the course. Accuracy (8/10) In my opinion this doesn't have much to do with the club, it's the golfer. I could easily square the face to get the ball on target. My GIR has gone up, but that has more to do with distance, which we will get to right now. Distance 10/10 Stupid filthy long is how I would describe the distance of the i200s. My very first swing on the course was with the 7i from 195 and the ball flew right at the pin and waved hi to it, as it flew 15yds over the green and into the water. With the Power Spec lofts, I'm 2 clubs longer than my old clubs. My GIR has gone up, because I'm hitting higher lofted clubs into the greens from ridiculous distances; the last two par 5s I've played, I have put it on with 8i from 185 and 182. Longest irons I've ever owned and because I'm hitting shorter (in iron length) higher lofted clubs my accuracy has went up. Forgiveness (8/10) This goes hand in hand with the distance, to create good accuracy. I'm not a pro, I don't hit the center of the face every time I swing the club, so I need accuracy, but I also need workability, which usually takes away from forgiveness. I'll get into the flight characteristics next, but I will say, these are “players” irons with the forgiveness of GI irons. My typical miss is towards the toe and these irons hold their line and distance as good as any iron I have ever played. The one place I have struggled a bit is out of the rough; I seem to catch more flyers than I ever have, I also seem to hit more snap hooks out of the rough, which ssems to have something to do with the design of the sole. Flight Characteristics (7/10) As I stated before, I expect a level of workability and forgiveness in my irons. With the i200s, I am able to work the ball left and right, with ease. If I was scoring the irons off workability alone, I would give them a solid 9/10, but alas I am not. I love the high penetrating launch of the 7i-GW, however I am disappointed with the launch of the 4i-6i. I struggle getting height on the long irons, heck I would be happy with mid launch, but these are low launching long irons. I play into a lot of elevated greens and not having a higher launching long iron is causing me to have to lay up on some par 5s, that are in my range, but I don't have the height to clear an obstruction in front of the green (bunker, grass bunker, mounds, etc). At the same time, the irons are so long that I'm not having to hit the long irons all that much. Performance Score – 33/40 Subjective Looks (8/10) The i200s have a sleek classic look to them, that usually only comes in a players iron. I have always been a fan of the minimalist look that Ping irons have had…..nothing flashy, just pure simple beauty. Sound and Feel (8/10) To be 100% honest, I don't notice any difference in the feel or sound of any higher end club. All higher end clubs feel like “butter” when you flush them and feel like you're hitting a brick when you don't. As far as sound, I also don't notice a difference between the i200s and my previous gamers. Likelihood of Purchase (9/10) This is actually the only set of clubs was looking to put in the bag. I haven't had a set of Ping irons since I got rid of my Ping Zings back in 2001 and I had already decided that this was the year I went back. The i200s had (on paper) everything that I was looking for, classic looks, forgiveness, length, and workability. Had I not been part of testing, these would have ended up in my bag anyway. Subjective Score – 25/30 Overall Score – 58/70 Conclusion These clubs will be in my bag for a long time; I love everything about them. Ping has always made excellent products and that continues with the new i200s. If you are low, mid, or high handicap, that is looking for the perfect blend of looks, forgiveness, distance, and workability, then these irons are for you.
  7. Bones Stage 1 Hello MGS'ers, welcome to my Ping i200 stage 1 review. Lets kick this thing off with a couple pics of these beauties. A bit about me Handicap/Average Score? - My current handicap is a 7, with a typical score between 75-80. My swing is still recovering from a partially separated shoulder that happened in August of 2015. Before the injury I was a 1.8, with a typical score between 70-74. I'm hoping the added forgiveness and playability of these irons will get me back on track. Strength/Weakness of my game? - Up until about 2 months ago, I'd have said my driving was my strength; I was hitting about 70% of fairways at a little over a 300 avg. At that same time, I'd have said my putting was my biggest weakness. Now those have flip flopped; I'm spraying my driver all over the course, sometimes not cracking 270 and my putting is the best it's ever been. How long have you been playing? - I have been playing for 31 years now. I started playing when I was 6 years old, with a cut down set of Spalding blades. It didn't take long to develop a love for the game I would say my first two years were spend on the range and practice green, not playing a par 3 course until I was 8. By the time I was 10, I was beating my father and grandfather. By the time I was a teenager, I was playing to about an 8 handicap with a set of Spalding blades and persimmon woods, that I bought at a yard sale and played with until my senior year of high school. I got a set of Ping Zing irons for my graduation present and then bought myself some Callaway Big Bertha woods with my graduation money.....thats when my game really took off. What makes you love the game? - My wife asks me why I'm so obsessed with golf and my answer is simple....it's a new adventure every time (hell, sometimes from one hole to the next). I use golf as an escape from the grind of life. There is just something about being out there in nature, with your feet in the grass, that is relaxing. I love that it is a sport for EVERYONE, no matter how good or bad you are at it. I love that my father-in-law and I bonded while playing, right up until cancer made it impossible for him to play; I still hit a ball into the lake (a frequent spot for his balls to land) in his memory, on his birthday. I love that my young daughters love to play golf, just because I love playing it so much. It's not just a hobby for me, it's a passion. Stay tuned for the full stage 2 reviews that will be coming from everyone very soon.

  11. Excuse me, sir, those were the DJ tees. Sergio ain't got nothing on me.....except a green jacket.....and a few Tour wins......and fame and fortune. The range at LaCosta was funny though...."excuse me, whoever is hitting driver over the net, please stop, the balls are going in the road". Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. The driver is a beast. I was searching for something that was as long as my SLDR and as accurate as my XR-16 Pro; after the Most Wanted results, I decided to give the Z765 a shot. I've only played 9 holes with it, but I've hit several balls on my personal driving range (huge open field behind my house), and holy cow is it long and straight. I hit one yesterday with a 6mph breeze at my back that easily carried a creek at 308 and I lasered from the ball back to my mat at 343. I'm going to play with some buddies after work tonight and I can't wait to leave them in my dust with this thing. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  14. I walked 36 today. Took a cart for a 3 hole playoff, but only because we had to go searching for open holes on a packed course. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
