PING i59's

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.

That should make some of the cold, snowy days less miserable.

The 4 iron is an i210…

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!

Went to play Desert Hills today and saw the PING Demo Tent... but no i59's 😥. They have another scheduled in early December and pretty sure they'll have them then.

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. 😥

Hah. I do indeed miss sporting PING's, but the Srixon's are a decent consolation.

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.
