PING Custom Iron Orders

Ordered my wife's new set of G425 irons mid July. They were red dot, -1/2” so I expected normal 8-10 week lead time. They were just delivered on Dec. 29th. We ordered through 2nd swing and it seemed like ping would push out the delivery date every month.

Ordered a G425 LST Driver in October and still haven't seen or heard anything...been waiting even longer for a couple Vokey's too FWIW - ordered in mid-September

Fitted July 4th…received December 30.  Played them December 31st!  Worth the wait, but now it snowed.

My local shop/fitter stated earlier this week, Mizuno instructed them to pull the C-Taper and C-Taper Lites from the fitting cart. Saw some other threads to include a letter from KBS they do not know when they will get the supply in and anticipating at least 3 months best case scenario. Realistically, probably is 2023 🤦🤷‍♂️

This is pretty much happening in all areas of manufacturing right now. I work in industrial machinery and many of the components we are trying to get we already know we won't get until at least first quarter of 2023. ... And suppliers won't even guarantee those dates are good. I've been in the industry for 28 years and I've never seen anything like this. Things we used to get in 2-3 weeks are now 6 months. Things that used to be 8-10 weeks are now a year. Stuff that used to be 6 months lead time, they won't even tell us when you can get them. 

Its really bad. And its horrible for the folks trying to work in customer service. All day long they have customers calling them and yelling at them. Some of them are swearing at them and screaming. Customer service folks don't get paid enough for that, so they quit. Then you have folks who used to be running machines having to stop to answer the phone. Which slows down production. Which makes customers even angrier and so on and so on. 

What I'm getting at. Is if you call PING (or any manufacturer really) and actually get a customer service person... Be nice to them. It's not their fault and at least they answered the phone.

I've been looking at putting a new set of clubs together.  I was in the PGA Superstore last week hitting some different irons.  Of the brands I tested, the sales guy said Mizuno, based on their experience, had the best shipping time on custom orders.  Ping he said was at the bottom.  A relative of mine that works for Titleist said they are at about 8 weeks for delivery.  Everybody is having supply problems except for PXG, if you believe their ads.

Titleist took them off the matrix over a month ago because there was no info from kbs when they would be available 

I just like pointing out, Ping isn't the only golf OEM having delays. It's industry wide and the length of delay is dependent upon more than club of choice. Me and a good friend ordered i210's on the same day in April. I got mine (PX LZ 6.0) in June. He got his (DG 105 S300) in October.

Spoke to a fitter buddy and Ping was forced to cut production due to Covid issues, however, effective Jan 1st, they are supposed to be back to 100% 24/7 to have all back orders shipped by March.

Hi everyone. Newbie from just outside Toronto here. I ordered a new set of Ping G425s on Black Friday from my club, after being fitted, and received them 2  weeks ago. That was about what they told me. Maybe I was lucky. I also got fitted for a PGX 0811-XF driver, and a 54 degree and 60 degree forged 0311 wedges. I received them in 2 weeks
