New Ping Irons to be released

Recommended Posts

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.

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

I know where there is a used set of g700 black dot reg flex nippon Modus 105 with 2 rounds on them selling for 25% off retail. They were just returned to the golf store in the area.

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.

      Been a good golf year and I’m getting pumped for next year.  For now it’s clean the clubs and practice putting in the garage.
       
      Curious to see if anyone plays or has opinions about my clubs.

      Almost a total remodel of the bag.

       SS 28 CS 33"
       
      Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
      3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 
      5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. 
      Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. 
      Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. 
      Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. 
      Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. 
      Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 
      Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
      Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
       
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Handicap
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!
