April 2019 would be in line with their usual release.  i200 was April last year

i200 replacement is due late summer.

April 2019 would be in line with their usual release.  i200 was April last year

I200 were announced 1/16/17.  Easy to confuse when GolfWRX starts talking about something and the official corporate release.  i200s were discussed here much earlier than Jan 2017, so it feels they have been around awhile.

http://www.golfwrx.c...ngs-i200-irons/

So if they maintain 18 mos cycle, July 2018.

They have gone longer on successful releases.  The S55 had a long run.  The i200 appears to have been very successful, so perhaps they will run longer and fill in with a 700 tour.

The G700's are a very large iron so I'm guessing they're targeted towards mid-high handicaps.

i200 replacement is due late summer.

April 2019 would be in line with their usual release.  i200 was April last year

i200s were considered "launched" mid January of 2017. PING is, and has been for several years, on an 18 month schedule for updates to lines.  I've already been told we should start seeing the i200 replacements late summer, early fall of 2018.

I'm hoping it's a smaller looking version of the newly released G700 SGi. That would be sweet.

Someone on WRX spotted a club around the i200 size but in the G700 style. Id assume that would compete with the 790s. Hopefully we get info on those soon.

ping i series has a 18 month turnover? i thought the i series has always been two years

it was definitely two years between i15, 20,25.  not sure after that

That's no lie.

Seems like the only way something like that would make sense is if 1) they were hollow long iron replacements to blend into an iBlade mixed set, or 2) either the rumored club or the i200 replacement goes the hotter face route while one keeps the standard attributes, or 3) the i200 replacement moves a little closer to the G in forgiveness, if not shape (hopefully) to make room for the new club.

I have hopes it will be a direct replacement to the i200 & competitor to the TM P790.

I played Ping Eye 2's for almost 20 years and bought G5's in 2006.  Great club and really respected Ping for not having to always try and keep up with the Jones'es.  It was almost 10 years between the Ping Eye 2 and the Zing.

I would be very surprised if the hollow back iron is the replacement for the i200. Probably a line to supplement, but not replace an existing line.

The i series is the functional descendent of the Eye 2 series and is really the anchor of the Ping line up.

From my understanding it is the iron pictured that looks like an iblade with the screw in the toe. Should be referred as i500 or i1500 and should be out in time for summer.

Whatever they replace the i200 with it won't be going in my bag. The i200 is iron perfection for a mid handicaper like myself. When they drop the price I'll be buying a couple more sets.

two questions: when is there a replacemnt for the I200 coming out?
2-what handicap is the G700 made for?

i200 replacement is due late summer.

April 2019 would be in line with their usual release.  i200 was April last year

i200s were considered "launched" mid January of 2017. PING is, and has been for several years, on an 18 month schedule for updates to lines.  I've already been told we should start seeing the i200 replacements late summer, early fall of 2018.

I trust this guy's Ping information he's been spot on before, now if KennyLeePucket chimes in and says something, it will be almost Gospel.
