Honestly I'd take the G400s out of them all. Great looks and forgiving as all heck.

 

The G700s would be a close 2nd place though!

G700 5 iron with graphite shaft (all others steel), i500 6 and 7, i210 8,9,P, U and Glide 2.0 54 (SS), 58(SS or ES).  Might have to do custom lofts to get the gap correct between the 7 and 8 iron.

I REALLY love the simplicity of the 500s. I'd do 4-PW, then Glide 50/54/58.

I don't think custom lofts are going to cover it.  The clubs seem to be about 10 yards apart in the tests I've seen so the gap between the i500 7 iron and the i210 8 iron could be as much as 25 yards.  You'd be better off going with an i210 7 iron and adjusting the loft down slightly.

Great point and my main concern building a mixed set.  Would you go 1/2 club strong in the 7 to get the proper gap to a 6?

Dear Kartsen Family,

 

Please review the "Former Ping Eye 2 Players" thread on this forum and help a long time Ping customer out by shipping me a set of G400's for evaluation.

 

Thank you,

I believe they are offering both the i210 and the i500 in "Normal", "Power" and "Classic" lofts.

Best thing would be to work with a club-fitter.

 

Maybe simply going with "Normal" i210s and "Classic" i500s would be sufficient, giving you the "boost" of the i500 head tech but with a weaker loft bringing the range in spec with the i210.

 

You'd only really be able to gap properly with a launch monitor and some testing though.

Proud owner of a slowly approaching complete archive of Titleist's blades circa 2000-2014 and a Wilson FatShaft CI10 blade putter in perfect condition (seriously, try Googling it and look at the state of the few that show up) which I bought when at college and just happens to look like it's stamped with my daughter's name, born 14 years after I bought it...

+1 on THIS! the i500 ,FOR ME, is hard and clunky despite the sexy look....the i210 has S55/i200 mix but larger....I've had the opportunity to use the i210 on course and the biggest thing was enjoying....no loving my misses....I didn't get along with previous iterations (i20/i25/i200) but something about the feel and look has me anxiously waiting!

Here are the soles of both!20180718_112518.jpg

G700 2,3 (if only!), i500 4-6, standard loft (I think), iblade 7-pw, forged 52,56,60. Obviously, some switching in and out of clubs depending on course/conditions, but I think I could live with this...

G700 2/3 irons would be like 11° and 14° or less. The 4 iron is already 17° (1 iron loft status)... wow, that could actually be a fun club to hit.

 

11° driving iron in the G700 chassis? With the ball speed and launch they can get I bet it could be done.

 

Edit: 18.5° 4 iron so looking at 12 and 15 give or take.

I believe the sole of the i210 has a more beveled edge making it wider but more forgiving in my opinion

Yes. Having hit both, I would agree with that.
