PGA Tour winner Ted Purdy hasn’t finished in the top-10 of a PGA Tour event since 2009, but he’s a favorite with golf equipment fans tonight.

The 43-year-old posted a photo on social media of a set of Ping irons marked “i200″ that the company is yet to announce. “Now these are sweet,” he said. “The NEW @PingTour i200.”

What’s new about the i200 irons? What makes them “sweet?” It appears that Ping may be spilling the beans sooner rather than later.

  1. Most likely these are miura / shaped by / or custom shaped for x player by ping clubmaker then stamped with “ping” for the tour pro. The masses will get something that looks similar and plays very different. Wake up folks the stuff the big boys are playing is not at all the same so don’t let the marketing fool you. Get fit for something that suits your game and stick with it. I played on small tours and saw this first hand when moving up to the big tour for Monday’s believe me this was over fifteen years ago and this is the way it was and it has never changed.

  2. Basically, just another deep cavity iron, low back weighting, etc. I am sure it will work because all the others work also. Nothing to get excited about.

    I have a number of sets of pings, Eye2 BeCu, ISI Nickel, ISI BeCu, G30, G30 Max, and any number of drivers and putters. They all work well, but dependent on the lofts they all play the same.

  3. Hope they offer decent shafts on this model. I am looking at this release to see if they might go that direction. If other manufacturers like Mizuno can offer decent shafts at no upcharge for irons, why can it not be done by PING?

    No upcharge shafts by some manufacturers is classified as upcharge by PING, where I am from it is a very expensive to go outside the normal offerings, especially if you play regular shafts.

    Currently play PING clubs but might venture elsewhere if the shaft selections does not improve.

    • There are 6 no charge steel shafts available. Most golfers can be well-fit into one of those. The I200 will retail for $125/club. Most Mizuno irons retail for $150/clubs. Would you rather Ping up the price across the board like that? I wouldn’t.

  4. Look VERY GOOD. Note to OEMs; lose the large logos, bright colored badges, etc and give us more options like this.

    This goes for everything in my opinion; for example, as a recreational golfer why does my golf bag need a giant manufacturer logo painted on the it?

  5. Decent looking Ping irons, for a change. I would consider those if they were forged and the production models looked like that. Knowing Ping, they’ll slap a colored badge on and Ugly them up.

  6. I saw these in person and at address they look similar to the iblade iron (AWESOME). I was also told from someone I consider a highly reliable source that the MOI on this iron is BETTER than the wide soled G15 from a few years back. With the great looks, if it is truly that forgiving…. THEY WILL HAVE A WINNER!

  7. these Irons are awesome on of my tour players were telling me about them and he said that there the best iron they have some out with in 10 years. the top line is super thin and the PW to the 4 iron look great the offset is perfect and the performance is great yall are going to love these most of the tour players will switch other then the guys playing the Iblades

  8. Look like a TM iron with a Ping CTP weight. After the elegance of the Ping I series this is a major disappointment at visually. And what’s with the name, shouldn’t it be Ping I-e2 to keep with the simpler names they were loud about with the recent releases, saying that the name would remain the same for each new release? They might still be a very good iron but they’re off to a poor start in my opinion.

  9. At an equipment website, you see a leaked photo, and you’re meowing about not seeing it top-down? What, are you going to be “that guy” that yells FINALLY when it is officially released? Ugh.
