Spotted: Tony Finau testing an unreleased Ping Forged iron

Published

on

Tony Finau was spotted at the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills testing an unreleased, unknown Ping utility iron.

What is the iron? If you check out this GolfWRX forum thread, members are saying its Ping’s new i500 iron, which is unconfirmed and strictly rumor.

What do we know about the iron? Nothing, aside from what we can see in the photos. They’re forged, they have a section in the toe that’s been milled out, and there’s a screw in the toe, likely showing that it has a hollow body construction, ala the Ping G700.

We’ll update you with more information as soon it becomes available. Until then, enjoy the images below.

    If this one is a hit and they take lots of business away from the P790/0311T/TMB, we’ll then be able to know that golfers buy clubs based on their looks….but we already know that, and this is one GREAT looking club for a GI design. Best ever, by a mile. If it performs, it’ll be in a lot of bags.

    My G700’s are incredible. Two guy’s in my group today want me to fit them to a set. Long, high flying, and forgiving.

    Those look sweet. I already have them though, mine just have p790 on them. Maybe that is the part that was removed from the face.

    It is the PING I500. It follows the industry trend being a distance iron with jacked up lofts.
    The I210 and I500 are supposed to be out in July.

    Orgamsic feeel jello-filled hollow irons… only for frustrated gearheadbaters.

    That offset though…

      Agree, too much offset. Otherwise reminds of TMB 716, with tungsten weights and bore thru tapered shaft plug, that can be drilled out and more weight can be added. TMB is a very neat design IMO, too bad that technology makes them so expensive.

      Agree; however, I’ll reserve that judgement until I see the specs. Maybe the long irons have much more offset than the mid and short irons, per usual. I’ll compare them to my S55s that I’m loving.

    It’s the new i500 and its amazing. I’ve hit it and can confirm it’s really good.

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.”
