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.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Scroll up to see clowns complaining about how a PING is cast not forged….

    SMH same dudes think Vokeys are forged.

    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.

          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 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.

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.”
