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.

          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.

Forum Thread of the Day: Cobra’s new King F9 “Speedback” driver?

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day revolves around information on Cobra’s latest releases. News of Cobra’s King CB/MB irons, which were created in tandem with Rickie Fowler, were released a couple of days ago, and in the thread titled “Cobra ’19 News?”, GolfWRX members got a peak at what else Cobra has lined up for its followers.

GolfWRX member cbuescher has revealed some fascinating information on possible future Cobra products, dishing out details on what are apparently Cobra’s new F9 drivers.

“F9 drivers look great.  No more F8+…..just one head with three different loft options.  Found out that the old F7/F8 adapters will fit new heads, but new adapters are labeled differently.  They now say STD, +1, -1, +1.5, etc.  The three different loft options will have the standard lofts as 9.0, 10.5, or 12. Drivers and fairways have a similar look as before but they’ve added two “turbulators” on the back of the crown. The driver will have 2 color options.”

GolfWRX forum members were also privy to information gleaned from cbuescher on Cobra’s new fairway wood and hybrid line:

“Fairway woods look almost identical to F8 with the milled face added this year.  Hybrids are a black matte finish and look much better IMO than last year.  Several of you asked about the KING Forged iron.  Unfortunately this club has gone away…they felt like Forged Tech was a better fit for that gap and the King Forged was not needed anymore.”
