Please let us know how that performed and what you thought about them 👍.

 

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.

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!

anyone buy these yet and decide they wanted to pass them on at 40% retail? I willing to make offers at $120/club 😃

@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.

Took some swings with the demo iron today. Intrigued despite the cost. love th sound on everything except a thin shot towards the toe but that shot isn’t supposed to sound nice. Didn’t feel like digging thru the fitting cart shafts so just stuck the trusty s300 in it. Feel was really good and not much vibration felt from non flushed shots

Those look great and only 4 weeks ARO... go buy a lottery ticket or dozen 😄. I just marked 11/29 on the calendar... PING Demo day at Desert Hills 👍.  I might get a chance to test them before that if Mesa Del Sol has them in the kiosk but either way, it's going to happen.  What's up with the lack of paint fill on the 4i?

Let us know how they perform.

I went to our local golf store yesterday, I need some tees to use on a hitting mat. 

Since I was there, I stopped by the Ping irons, and holy cheeseburger these irons look so nice. I'm not sure what else to say, the top line and offset to good things 

I didn't get to hit them, the sim bays were both full. Which is probably a good thing.

Even Par 72 for my 1st round with the i59’s. You know that feeling you get once or twice a round when you pure one? That feeling/sound with these babies is so superior to my old AP3 it’s not funny. Shot of the day was this 6 iron to about 13 feet. Missed the eagle putt though…

Sorry if I missed this answer already, but why go to the i210 with the 4 iron? Does it profile as a more forgiving iron then then i59? 
I mainly ask because I have the i210's and do love them still (thank you MGS for that testing opportunity), but will admit I was under the impression the i59 was a more forgiving iron overall. I actually even moved away from the i210 4 iron to a 4 Crossover from Ping which helped get me the numbers I was looking for.

MOI on the i210 and i59 are virtually identical, I just wanted a larger head and the stronger loft (22 vs 23.5) for the 4. It bridges the gap between my U510 3 iron and the i59’s nicely.

Finally got to hit a 7i with the stock LS 6.0 at the range this weekend. The grass was closed so didn't get a great feel for turf interaction, but I really liked everything about it otherwise. Nice high flight, really good forgiveness low on the face which is my typical miss. Feel was really good considering the beat up range balls; not ZX7 soft but still very solid, similar to but better than my brief test with the T100, though I had a PX 6.5 in the T100 which is a bit harsher for me than the LS, so not necessarily a fair comparison.

Not sure if I can stomach the pricing when there are so many strong offerings at lower price points, but man are they good looking!

The kiosk at Mesa Del Sol has a black dot i59.  I'm tempted to try it but probably should wait until a green dot is available.

I think you should try the black dot. Mostly because it isn't the right one for you and you know it. That way, if you hit it poorly, you will just chalk it up to the wrong lie angle. And if you hit it great you will only wonder how much better it could be in the right lie. Either way, you are still thinking about it, and wondering why you ever left team Ping. 😥

I’ve gone from a Titleist fanboy to team Ping in just under a year. First it was the G410 LST replacing my Titleist 918 3 wood, then the i59’s beat out the t-100 as replacements for my AP3. Did I mention that now my vokey wedges are not strong enough to match up with my i59’s? And now Ping has forged wedges you say? All that’s left is my u510 3 iron and my trusty Mizuno m craft putter…

+1 on the team PING comment … been extremely pleased with the G425s. And almost +1 on the wedges … 

But disappointed to see that for the Pro Glide Forged, the highest bounce option is only at 10° throughout the set, and the lowest bounce option at 6°. And at $200 makes it slightly more annoying to purchase, when two new Mizuno T22s would set you back $300 or so. 

Their Glide 3.0 wedges had way more bounce options with 12° and 14°, but are no longer available in custom orders. ☹️

The SM8s performed well in the MGS Most Wanted Wedges and have always played Vokeys, but like you, PING has won me over.

I’ve been seeing other wedges(besides my sm8’s) on the side this year: the TW 56 from Taylormade has actually kicked  the 56* vokey out of the bag. But I’m not sure any wedge can replace my 60* k grind.
