PING Custom Iron Orders

Recommended Posts

I work in the industry at a retailer. Ping sent out a mass email about production issues for components in Vietnam. Everything is delayed until the covid shut down ends over there. Then you have to worry about shipping wether it be on ships or flown over. It’s sad to know that covid is affecting everything and unfortunate for those waiting. Keep your heads up chaps and just be patient. 

TaylorMade M3 irons and mix match everything else.

My wife was fitted by Ping in July, G425 woods and Irons. The woods dribbled in about 6-8 weeks. We are still waiting on the irons and are being told November. At that point it won’t matter for us as our season will be over here in Ontario. As long as the are here by April we will be ok. We haven’t paid for them yet either.

I personally waited over 13 weeks for TSi D,3w & 3h early in the season.

Every industry is affected unfortunately. As frustrating as it is, there is nothing we can do but be patient and wait it out.

It is not just Ping , all companies are having major issues delivering on time. If it isn’t heads , it’s shafts or grips. The golf business has boomed due to COVID but the companies have not been able to follow. 

It really has very little to do with the companies themselves. The supply chain has been a disaster for a year, it doesn't matter what it is, it's a problem. 

Ping's issues are exacerbated by the fact that their plants are in Vietnam that are continually shutting down. 

I work on the export side from the US, it's a mess but the import side is way worse. Just one example we had some containers stuck in a trans shipment port for 7 weeks.

...and by the time we get them they will be last year's models. 

Yes, it is a sad fact...but, even though you have a last year's model, (still new), come this spring there won't be any THIS year models available, so are still ahead of the curve. Good luck and try to have fun regardless.

Totally understandable.  It sounds like they, more so than the other OEM's, had the worst hand from the deck of Covid cards (supply chain locations, lost shipments, etc.). I sure hope PING gets through this in the long run.

I was fitted for a set of g425 irons at my club, and we ordered them the same day in late April.

 

It took about 8 weeks for them to come in (toward the end of June).

It will be 5 weeks tomorrow since ordering the G425 irons on September 1. They originally told my PGA Club Pro & fitter to expect 8 weeks for delivery. I'm fortunate that my Pro has played PINGS for 30+ years and sends PING a lot of business. They are now telling him the 8 weeks is date is still good which would be late October. For what it's worth.

It seems like there was a short period of time early in the year that PING orders were getting through the build process with only 3-6 weeks delay... then the bottom fell out. 

When I ordered my ZX5's through Fairway Jockey (now owned by True Spec), on 5/26, they told me to add 4-6 weeks longer than their current 4-6 week build time if I chose the G425's.  The ZX5's arrived just short of 7 weeks ARO.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the spectrum, PXG is having product sales and shipping inside 2 weeks... bonkers.

It started and has continued to get worse once Vietnam shutdown. There nothing being made.

As for PXG they have limited shaft options compared to earlier in the year but they were able to offer most of them because they stocked up on shafts and they have had a lot of head inventory on hand. Their heads are made in China and other than shipping delays of future heads they will be able to sell and ship clubs pretty quick.

Getting caught up on this thread and I’m disappointed to read that there’s no positive news on the horizon. 😕

If it’s any consolation, I will say that now that I’ve got the G425 irons, I regret canceling my initial order after 10 or so weeks. And who knows if I would’ve rcvd that initial order by now … but after 2 weeks with the new sticks, I absolutely love ‘em. 

These irons are worth the wait, albeit the communicating of timeline could’ve been better across the board. 

I’ll add that 2ndswing has brand new in stock, Green and White Dot irons … and used Blue Dot.

Yep - me too, 3, 4, 999...  Ordered i210s, Green Dot, Steel shaft on July 7th.  Just told maybe in November...  They are left-handed, but still - it's a looooong time - glad my MP-32s still have some semblance of grooves...

I ordered a custom set G425 irons in May and still have not rec'd them.  I am now being told I may not get them until next year.  This golf season is wrapping up here anyway.  Looking forward to my new set in the new year.
