Ping ChipR


Recommended Posts

With chippers having such a stigma around them, it’s nice to see a company like Ping make a return to the market with such a polished product that looks great in any bag. 

As always, you can check on the fully write up over on the blog https://mygolfspy.com/ping-chipr-just-in-time-for-the-open/

This thread will serve as the unofficial feedback/review thread for those of us trying the Ping ChipR as well as for those interested to ask questions

I feel like this is just a big name version of the square strike. Am I wrong? I’m still interested in how it works for you though @jlukes

Similar concept. More refined in terms of looks and also blending with a irons and wedges.

Ok just saw it and thought it looked similar. Can’t wait to see how it works for you

The negative? I didn’t have to use it once during my actual round this morning! 
 

The positive? I chipped for about 15 minutes before my round and it was a joke. Just stupid east to use. My nemesis shot is when I’m just in the rough off the green with not a lot of green to work with.  First 3 chips i hit from this location all ended within 2 ft of the hole. Need to spend some more time on the longer chips to see where the top end of my range is with the putting grip/stroke and when in need to start using a more tradition chipping grip and motion. 
 

Early feedback is extremely promising and my big take away from my round was there was no performance drop of from going from 50/54/60 to 52/58

I posted this in another thread.
 

Anyone CAN learn to chip with a lower lofted club, but,,,,,,,

The new Ping ChipR is a putter with a 9iron’ish head thereby giving the opportunity to chip with the best success stance and action of a putter. At 6’ 3” and +1 irons my chipping stance is still no where near my putting stance due to club lie angle and length and makes chipping contact much more imperfect than a mishit with my putter.

Overall success of a better strike, and result is increased with the putter over a iron. Ah ha,,,, the ChipR!

The oldest gentleman in our group uses a chipper, something from years gone by, and it pisses me off. Not because he uses it but because he’s darn good with it! He struggles from high ruff with a wedge but everywhere else that chipper usually puts him in one putt, or pick up range.

 I can use a wedge, 6, 7 or 8 from anywhere around the green pretty well and usually get up and down but I have no ego and ordered the new Ping ChipR. Anything to help drop 2, 3 or more strokes a round is the difference between shooting mid 80’s into the high 70’s.

We’ll see how it works out. Or not.

My "Mazel" chipper (Square Strike but with a different (more Jewish?) name - seriously, am I saying it wrong? Is there another way to pronounce "Mazel" except as part of "Tov"?) arrived yesterday - was going to do a mini-review, but then saw OG did an incredible thread a few years back, and figured it was overkill.  I got it in the black-version (not bright green - nasty, lol), and 45*, and was only able to use it around the back yard, but I will say that the design of it is pretty smart: weighted and upright like a putter, immediately gets me closer to the ball, ball flies legit dead straight for wherever I'm aiming.  So far, so good.

I've been chipping almost exclusively with my PW (44* set wedge), and have definitely seen an improvement from trying to use my 52*, but I'm still wildly inconsistent with the distance.  I'm curious to see if this helps my distance control - if not, I got it on sale on Prime Day for $60, so...easy enough to offload for a wash.

I'm also going to throw a midsize grip on it - the grip on this isn't CRAZY skinny or anything, but it stinks like a tire, and doesn't feel nearly as nice as my standard grips, so I'll see if that has any effect.

Loved seeing Ping come out with the ChipR (such a stupid name), but was pretty surprised at the near-$200 price, especially given the price of this (admittedly lower-quality, based on first impressions) thing.

L'Chaim. (now I'm just trying to make myself laugh)

Lol - my Mazel (Square Strike Sibling) came with a cover, and it's hilarious. "Chipper" it says - as if I could be confused what it could be, lol.  I'm keeping it on, just to piss off anyone I play with 😉

Sure, I hear that, but...does your 7 or 8 iron COME WITH ITS OWN COVER WITH "CHIPPER" EMBROIDERED ON IT?  DOES IT?  HUH?????

Shafts are too long and lie angles off when u try to use 7 iron, too many variables.  I luv my pre Prohibition (?) or Eisenhower era Don Martin, bronze, no groove, "Up-N-In".  And either re-gap your wedges, or drop a long iron or something between driver and five iron to make room for it.  But no, if you are hitting greens with most approach clubs, no, u don't need a chippie. Ebay usually has some Don Martins.  Save the extra $$$ for the premium draft beers.

So you only use one club?  Because I mean driver is only for driving. Putter only for putts. And I know you’re not carrying your lob wedge 250 off the tee…

I've tried the one at MGS headquarters and it works for chipping and finesse shots so it is pretty versatile.    I'd be willing to drop a lob wedge to put it in the bag.

That’s my concern. Don’t know what I would feel comfortable dropping from the bag….I still can’t decide if I prefer my 3/4 irons or the 4 hybrid and now I’d have to give up a wedge? 😳
