What's the point of that milled out section of the club?

Looks like tinkering with the weight to change the CoG would be my best guess unless it’s totally for looks... LOL.

Maybe that's where the badge will go for production?  I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this won't be a utility club and Ping will actually make a full set of these irons.  Furthermore, I'm just going to randomly throw out a name, the i500.  I could be wrong, have been plenty of times in the past.

Theres another thread in here speculating that this is the new I500 irons and the part that is milled out is the i500 badging.

Interesting, I didn't know random and quoted by multiple other places meant the same thing...

That’s probably also true but it looks like that screw is in the same area of the club head.  So there’s definitely weight being moved in some capacity but I don’t know how much can be moved and how much effect it can really have.

Tough to see, but looks like a fair amount of offset.

This is the kind of crap you get when people start creating multiple threads for the same thing. Hopefully mods will merge this one with the original thread to stop the shenanigans.

My thought exactly.  Seems pretty thin for a utility iron.

Now if this happens to be a replacement for the iblade then these will be hot!  I wonder if the screw on the toe means Ping is tinkering with a filled cavity?

Got to love it another beat a dead horse thread that is becoming the norm around here. First appearance January 2018. Mods used to do a better job of consolidating threads.For the 1,000,000,000 time——hollow iron, no foam, screw for swing weighting..7 threads on same thing on front page. Who will start the 8th??

Well i heard ping might be coming out with an i500 iron so I might start a thread about that.

I imagine it's either been milled out to remove the model number before an official announcement or they're going to pop a little medallion in there with the model number. I doubt it has anything to do with the clubs performance. I think the screw is to fine-tune club and swing weight at the factory, they can add more hot melt or propriety Ping Goo™ to dial the heads in.
