PING i59's

Recommended Posts

Knowing what else is out there and other alternatives in the iron category, these i59s at their price range is a non-starter. 

Mayyybe around $1600 for a set, these would get serious considering from me ... yet there’s no denying these are a beautiful set of irons. Love the satin pearl finish with the white scoring line at the bottom groove.

Earlier in the summer, I placed an order on their G425 irons and after close to 10+ weeks of waiting, I cxld that order. Can’t imagine how long these i59s would take. 😳 

Do hope there is an i210 replacement for 2022 with a significantly lower price point.

If you were looking at g irons the i59 probably isn’t your ideal setup. Also if you went 5-p they would be $1500 

the i210 replacement is coming in the spring and would fit into the sub $1600 and more than likely will run about what most irons are going for now for a 7 piece set

Loads of bounce too.  Curious about that and right lies.  I struggled with the high bounce on the Blueprints badly.

Seems to be their MO on that one though, the i210s and i500s have this as well which most companies go for lower bounce especially in players clubs

That’s why these bad boys are right up my alley.  Considering that you can buy I-blades 3-pw for $1000, paying double for the new model  seems unlikely for me. That being said, I have an iron fitting in 2 weeks, and the i59’s are on the “hit list”

I'll be the Negative Nancy for the thread.  🙂

These don't interest me much at all.  I'm not a fan of hollow iron heads in general, this is more of the same.  Add in the price and my interest drops even more.

For what little that's worth.  <shrug>

These have aluminum in them. Does that make them hollow.

I think lots of PING aficionados feel the same.

I'd say yes.  Unless it's a solid cross-section, it's a hollow, multi-piece design.

Pxg and p790 are foam filled but yet considers hollow

I hit a demo 7 iron today off a mat. The launch monitor wasn’t on, so no numbers. The feel was ok but nothing special. It did look great at address.

Multi piece I can agree with. Hollow, I am not sure.. If there is stuff in there is it hollow?? haha.

I had the 700’s at one time and thought the I59 looked real similar.  I’m sure a lot can be blamed on the epidemic, but something is going on at Ping - Sure hope they get back to their previous high standard before those of us long loyal to Ping switch to another brand. 

Started playing late in life, but as I got older I found that golf is a much better activity than a lot of things old folks get into, plus I meet some of the nicest most interesting people!

@fixyurdivot

just got back from my iron fitting: the I59 are legit! They are plenty forgiving for such a compact blade like shape. Feel? Amazing. Great launch and spin numbers as well. The only club in the running against it is the Titleist T-100.

And since the project x ls 6.0 is a no up charge shaft in the ping, but not in the T100, for me the price difference 4-W would be $140. If comparing stock offerings the difference is $60 a club… but for what I’d be getting, (I210 4i, I59 5-W) vs T100(t100s 4i, 5-W t100) it’s $1629 for the Ping and $1490 for the Titleist. Granted, what closes the price gap is shaft up-charge, but $140 isn’t the end of the world for a set of irons you love.

So true, I'll give you $140 for them if you don't like them after you get them! 

They look so nice

I'm already looking forward to your review 👍. I 'm also hoping they have been added to the PING kiosk at Mesa Del Sol in Yuma.

Have not: I honestly have tried to forget about them for about 2 months, haven’t even called the shop yet. Was quoted 6-8 weeks…
