Spotted: Ping i210 irons and Glide Forged wedges

Published

on

Last week, Bubba Watson was spotted with Ping Glide Forged wedges in his bag. Now, Ping i210 irons have been spotted as per our forums.

We haven’t seen a new iron from Ping since its release of the G700 irons back in January, and we haven’t seen players irons from Ping since the i200. Obviously, based on nomenclature and looks, the i210 seems to be a replacement for the i200 irons, which blended cavity back forgiveness with the sleekness of a blade.

Check out more photos of the Ping i210 irons here.

    Tungsten in the toe of the forged wedges?

      The wedges are not truly “forged”…. they are “coin” or stamp forged to achieve the milled look … because you can’t “mill” the back of the wedges…. the face yes, the back no.

        p.s. … coin forged is “cold” forged…. not “hot” forged”. Colf forging only changes the surface metallurgy while hot forging affect the entire club body. I call cold forged “fake-forged”.

    …. and I bet the ping eye 2s from the 80s will show better numbers on trackman.

    Those wedges look amazing. i210 looks like an older Mizuno.

    Looks like they got a hatch door on the back of the irons for the elastomer jello-filled cavity… following PXG and TM …. 😮

      Even I can see that that is simply a weight. Not no hatch door.

      That is clearly a weight and it nothing new to Ping irons. That weight allows Ping to change swing weights unlike any other brand in golf. Without that weight the swing weight on my set up would be D9, with it Ping easily brought my iBlades down to a D4.

    That’s kind of a weird rough finish on that wedge in the cavity; hopefully they change that.

      Milling is in and they aren’t going to change it. I think these are the best looking Ping wedges ever.

        It’s not ‘milled’…. it’s cast and then coin (punched) forged and then called ‘forged’ for gullible golfers in love with Ping.

        • Jwells

          Jun 8, 2018 at 2:25 pm

          The design he is speaking of is absolutely milled, he’s not talking about the whole thing being milled. They look fantastic but will have to see how they feel because that’s everything

          you mean like taylormade, callaway and mizuno?

      I’ve seen the wedges. They are beautiful.

      You don’t hit the ball with the cavity. They can finish it any way they want. I’m sure they are awesome.

    Ohhhh I like them! The last iron set I truly liked were Ping G25s. I’m on my 3rd set since and I learned a valuable lesson… Quit tinkering. But tinkering is fun and I’m stupid.

An Interview with T Squared putters, started by a high school golfer

Published

on

I’ve coached high school golf for over 15 years, and I thought that I had run out of “firsts.” Then, Anthony Tuber, one of our varsity six, told me that he builds putters. “Sure,” I thought. You purchase the components and assemble putters. Nice hobby to have. “No, coach, I build them from scratch. We have milling machines.” If that doesn’t catch your attention, not much will.

As a coach, you encourage your golfers from a base of experience, but I don’t have any club-making experience! The last time I played around with metal was in middle-school metal shop. In this particular case, the student is the coach, and the golfer is the teacher. I’m now the proud owner of a T Squared putter, and continue to be the proud coach of Anthony Tuber. He might be the next Bob Vokey, or Scotty Cameron, but for now, he is a varsity golfer and high school student. Oh, and he happens to make putters. Rather than write a review that might be perceived as biased, I decided to do a straightforward interview with T Squared Putters. If you want to learn more, visit the company website, or follow them on Twitter and on Instagram.

Question 1: What type of research and field testing did you do, prior to building your first putter?

Prior to making our first putter we bought a bunch of putters to see what we liked and disliked about them. Then we took those putters and tested them to figure out which roll we liked the best. The roll is determined by the weight of the putter the length and the groove pattern. After we completed the testing we drew up a design and shortly after that we had our first prototypes. We then tested those prototypes and they rolled exactly how we wanted. Time went by while we used these first putters but then we really wanted to see the competition. We went to the PGA Merchandise Show and that’s where we found out that we had a superior putter.

Question 2: Is there a style of putter that you like, that perhaps served as inspiration for some of your designs?

We bought and tested dozens of putters but two putters caught our eye and those putters are the Scotty Cameron Squareback and the Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Notchback.

Question 3: Can you tell us a bit about the materials/components that you chose for T Squared Putters?

We use American-made 303 stainless steel in all of our putters, but we also we use 6061 aircraft aluminum for the insert on the 713i.

Question 4: How do you balance your responsibilities and commitments, with your T Squared production?

During the school year academics are my number one priority. Over the summer I have been balancing my Tsquared putters work while working on the progression of my golf game. Fortunately I have a team that is very supportive of my vision for T Squared putters.

Question 5: Any chance we will see a mallet-style putter from T Squared?

Yes, we are currently testing other mallet putters to determine the most desirable features for our mallet putter. We are anticipating a prototype soon.

Question 6: Are you a better putter now that you know so much more from the design and production side of putters?

Yes, I have an entirely different perspective when I stand over every putt.

Question 7: How do you get the word out about the quality of your putters?

We have been very active on social media. The golfers that are currently using a Tsquared putter have been spreading the word. We have also been attending local golf tournaments to establish our brand.

Question 8: Do you hope to make a career of this venture, or do you envision it as a step along the path of a 21st-century businessman?

Yes, as golf is my passion I hope to take Tsquared putters to the next level. Golf will always be a part of my life whether it is professionally or recreationally.

Question 9: Finally, what question haven’t we asked, that you wish we would? Ask it and answer it, please.

I haven’t been asked how this process has affected me as a person. As a 17 year old I have a new appreciation for patience, persistence and hard work.

Titleist confirms yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls for 2019

Published

on

Back in April, when Titleist launched its new AVX golf balls in both white and optic yellow, Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, spoke on the possibility of yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls on GolfWRX’s Two Guys Talking Golf podcast: “Our process is so focused on golfer feedback… if the demand for a yellow Pro V1 or Pro V1x were large enough…we would like to deliver on it.”

Well, it appears that golfer demand was high enough and Titleist is delivering on it, because on Monday, a company representative confirmed that yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls are coming in 2019.

Rumors were recently swirling about the possibility of yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, and Team Titleist Manager Mike D. confirmed them in a post on Team Titleist’s discussion thread.

In the post, Mike D. writes…

“Now, you may have heard some of the rumors out there that this was the year that we would finally introduce a yellow Pro V1, Well, I’m here to let Team Titleist know that the rumors aren’t rumors at all. That’s right, after speaking with our product team I am able to confirm that we will be launching (sorry, I couldn’t avoid the pun) yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls in 2019.”

Apparently, posts within the Team Titleist community played a large role in making that happen.

“In fact, Team Titleist played a pretty big role in making this happen. We read and shared all of the posts from the community asking for us to make a yellow Pro V1 and our R&D team went to work.

They spent countless hours on figuring out how we could develop the best possible bright colored cover formulation. They went through numerous trials to get everything just right.”

So, do we have confirmation on when exactly the yellow golf balls will hit the market? Not just yet…

“While we can’t share any more details than this update, we did want to make sure we confirmed this exciting news to all of you as soon as possible.

So stay tuned for more updates and details later in the year.”
