Turn around time on orders at Ping

I got fit for a Ping G410 3 wood with the Tour 75 shaft in stiff on 8/28, 5 weeks later (today) I call the shop that fit me and they looked it up in Pings system, it still has a status of “processing” with no estimated ship date.

The shop said it has happened before when they run out of a shaft or a head. Anyone else experience this?

I ordered a 3 wood and hybrid immediately after a fitting on June 12. 3-4 week delivery.

I got the 3-wood after about 6 weeks. Had the wrong grip and the wrong head. Just got the replacement club a week ago.

I did not receive the hybrid and cancelled it a couple of weeks ago. Apparently the Tour 85 shaft wasn't available and when it became available, then the head wasn't available. When they said the expected production date was Oct 1 I cancelled since our season will be done by the time I'd get it.

Spoke with the Ping Rep on Monday at my local shop and he said getting a 3 wood for me would have been 10 week minimum as of Monday. Apparently, the heads or shafts aren’t coming in on time he told me 😕

Every OEM has been experiencing supply chain delays. Some of them are due to product that wasn't created due to factory shutdowns, some of them are due to extremely long shipping times as every shipper has been overwhelmed for quite some time.

Ping was very up front about closing their facility early on and taking specific steps to slowly reopen in order to protect their employees health. As a result, Ping is one of many manufacturers across every industry that is having much longer than usual shipping times.

PING is getting back to "normal"  But still running about 4 weeks.  Your store manager can call them and find out exactly where it is in the processing time.  I've done it before and gotten answers for customers.

I ordered G710 irons a little more than 10 weeks ago. Original promise date was 3 weeks. I’m not upset yet, we’re dealing w unprecedented times.

I'll bet we're now just seeing the lag time in the supply chain.  Many of the major OEM's keep a healthy inventory of the most popular components and they've consumed those. Being a supply chain specialist during the C19 event must be a major PITA... so much uncertainty that guesstimates are being made on top of guesstimates. Even if the physical product is at the ready, then comes the shipping part - much of which is international and China centric.

guesstimates on guesstimates is right. 

when you get a lead time, it’s a      real-time quote. by the time your product has stocked, been built, and is ready to ship, that lead time you were given is obsolete. 

i just pulled out of a pretty big deal in china for this exact reason. when we were negotiating contracts, the lead time was 4-5 months which i was good with. now it’s 7-8 months. i can’t make an investment when i believe that lead time will only keep sliding further out of my favor. 

china had a stranglehold on global manufacturing for a long time and they’ve lost it because of covid.

You’re not alone. My G400 driver fractured on the hosel at the end of August. The replacement ordered was delayed because of not having the shaft in stock  and has been delayed again now due to not having a 9* LH head.

It’s a little frustrating, but Ping has been transparent and are very gracious to warranty a G400, so I’m not upset. At the end of the day, it’s just a golf club and  I get to look forward to the anticipation of that long brown box showing up! 

Hang in there!

Yes, last ship date was supposed to be last week.
I’m getting a bit itchy as I can hear “Titleist irons” calling out to me.

Ping should just release the G425 series as they have in Asia and Australia. I am waiting on a driver and really like the G410 and have heard the G425 has better MOI and graphics.

I got an update today on the Ping G710 irons.
The holdup is and has been the Recoil Shafts and should ship end of October.
I can live w that if everything is what I wanted.
My birthday is end of the month so would be fitting if they came in then.

I’m going on 7 weeks, the shop told me the last 3 wood ordered from Ping ahead of me took 8.5 weeks. I think it’s a shaft availability issue, the Tour 75 is made by UST Mamiya (like the recoils @Rickp ) - UST must’ve been impacted by all this as well.

It’s hard to blame Ping, but unfortunately these delays are eating into the little bit of the golf season that I still have up here.

What a weird year!

When I got fitted by PING on June 12 they told me 3-4 weeks. They were not up front about the delivery times. Sounds like they are doing it now, but they were not earlier on.

I heard today that the G710 are still on for shipping last week October. The Recoil shafts are still promised then. We’ll see.
My guy is on them every 3 days for updates.

Speaking as someone who works for a (non-golf) manufacturer that ships worldwide, supply chain and shipping times got increasingly worse as things dragged on. I'm going to lean more towards "continued delays in getting materials pushed out delivery times" rather than "misrepresented delivery times".

Yup, have to agree. My G710 heads are ready and awaiting the Recoil shafts.
