New Ping Irons to be released

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So I was at a Demo Day this past Friday (6/16/18) hitting irons and the Ping Rep mentioned that Ping was going to release a new iron.  He didn't know that date and didn't say what they were,  Anyone heard this rumor ?

I was told last weekend not to buy the i200 I wanted, since Ping would soon be introducing the i200S.

I can't believe they did away with the i200's a whole month before releasing the i210. Stupid really I had them in my cart from golf discount and had 4-pa black dot with x100's. I needed one more paycheck and then I came back to the cart and it said sold out. I did searches and found either mgs or golfwrx saying discontinued etc. called ping and they confirmed. They also said it took them by surprise because one day there were taking orders and then they were told to stop.

I have bee watching used left handed i200's on ebay and have the impression price's have been dropping fast. I know what angle I need and shaft flex. I have a Glide 2.0 58 degree wedge and it is absolutely one of my favorite short game clubs.

It's crazy. Inexplicable really. I'm wanting to buy a set of i200s and Golf Galaxy will not sell them to me. That's right, they have them in stock, and they were told not to sell them. How fishy does that sound? The i210s won't be released until July 31 according to the sales rep at Golf Galaxy. I'm ready to buy right now and Ping is turning away my money and risking a lost sale (I might not have the patience to wait for the i210s). Why? There has to be a reason. "This is highly unusual" said the sales manager at Golf Galaxy. Yeah it is. How is it possible that you have a set of irons IN STOCK and you won't sell them? 

 

There's something wrong with the i200s. That's my guess. They have a defect and Ping doesn't want to accept any more exposure than they already have. The face is caving in. The insert is popping out. They're spending $$ repairing too many i200s and they've decided enough is enough. That's my theory.

Nothing wrong with the i200s. Ping discontinued the model and you can't buy them anywhere. If there was issues with them ping would have addressed that a long time ago not right before a new release

I hear ya. It's just down right annoying. What does Ping care if Golf Galaxy sells the last set of irons they have in stock. Ping gets my money and Golf Galaxy sells a set. Why is it so important to remove the irons that are in stock 28+ days before they release the new irons? It makes no sense to me.

Well, well. Looks like my mint i200 3-Gap set should gather some interest in a week or two

I can't soeak for why they decided to discontinue but they are usually pretty good at inventory control and since they had stopped customer orders several weeks ago it makes sense to pull back the inventory they have in retail shops. Iirc the i210s can be ordered next week and ready to be shipped and received on the release date. Discontinuing models and the stopping of sales on consumer good at the end of a cycle happens.

Will this release drop the price on the G400's do you think?  I just tested those at a Ping demo this past winter and they felt and performed pretty darn nice.  Enough to get me away from my one owner PE2's dunno, but if the price drops, that will increase the tease.

Nope. G400 is latest release on the g lineup. Since these are i210 and i500 the price drop cake on the i200 and then the discontinuation of i200. I don't recall seeing a price drop on iBlade.

 

The one thing you can count on with ping is 18-24 month release cycles. With the addition of the g iron line several years ago it's now basically every year an iron set comes out. One year is g the next i

What about the G700's?  I find marketing really fascinating. Between my fly fishing and golf hobbies, I could have put an even bigger dent in my bank account had I stayed current with the latest.

G700 are current release too. I don't remember if they were a fall release or beginning of 2018 so they are early in their 17-24 month cycle.

 

If looking for something at a cheaper price like the g700 on a discount check out titleist 716 tmb. For the g400 look at the previous ping releases in the g series or TaylorMade m1/2 irons

So I went across town to a different Golf Galaxy and bought the last set of i200s they had. Not a word spoken about Ping wishing to stop all sales of these irons. Someone gave someone bad info. All is well that ends well.
