Had an iron fitting last week and wanted to place a custom order for i200 irons.  Was told that is no longer possible, even though you can still place custom orders for i-series e1 irons, customization also still available for G irons.  Called Ping for confirmation and was told yes, that's what it is.  Ping has never done this before, usually offering custom orders going back at least one, if not two generations.  Also seems strange given that i210 probably won't start delivering until sometime in August.

Anyone have any insight or thoughts on what they are trying to achieve?  I'm confused.

How custom are you trying to go?  I placed an order 9 days ago that were red dot, -1/4, modus 105x, and they delivered yesterday...didnt bat an eye.

My opinion...just trying to have better control of inventory levels would be my guess...look at IE1 as an example there are a ton of people on here that love that iron yet even though it is cheaper price they still have more than adequate inventory of a product that was reduced 18 months ago...I25 inventory levels stayed pretty high as well long after it was reduced.

again IMO...don't think there is any funny business, it was just that popular and ran out a little faster than they thought, no need to order more now with replacement coming in just over a month

Standard custom order: 5-UW, black dot, LZ 5.5, Tour Velvet grip, standard length and loft.  No custom orders period, case closed.  You got in just in time.  Just seems odd to do that before the i210 is actually available.  There's probably so little difference in the i210 that they are going to force people into buying that instead of getting a good deal on the i200.

Can you really blame Ping here? I’m sure all of their production has shifted to the new model, why invest capital in inventory for an obsolete model? Especially when most people would rather wait for the new ones anyway. It’s a tough break, but my guess is you will see more used sets pop up for good prices leading up to and after the new model release.

I'm going to venture that when the price dropped they sold a lot of these and ate up their inventory faster than they expected.

Got my set in just in time, and then followed up with a matching UW one day before the cut off. I didn't even know they were going to do that, just got lucky. Picking up the UW tonight.

Man, I ordered a set last week through TGW.  Hopefully I beat the cutoff.  I didn't get anything super fancy, standard stiff shaft black dot, just different grips.  The status is still processing.

This happened to me last Saturday during my fitting as well; they said i200 could not have custom orders anymore.

Fitter's guess was due to the impending release of the i210.

Mine was one of the last custom i200 orders. Fitter told me they were selling like hotcakes the two weeks after the price drop so I jumped on it. I went ahead and ordered 4 iron through U to grab a complete set. Green dot, plus 1/2 inch, power specs, DG 120 shafts. They arrived last week.

Still mint condition i200ís on the secondary market and those can be adjusted by Ping if you send them in.
Ping G400 9 degrees, Ping Tour stiff shaft, 65 grams
Callaway XHot2 Pro 3 wood, 15 degrees, Aldila Tour Green stiff shaft
Callaway XHot2 Pro 5 wood, 17 degrees, Aldila Tour Blue stiff shaft
Titleist 816 H1 hybrid, 19 degree set to 20, Diamana Blue 60S shaft

Miura CB57 5-PW, Nippon Modus 125 stiff shafts, soft-stepped
Ping i200, 4-PW, power spec lofts, Dynamic Gold 120 stiff shafts
Mizuno S5 50-degree gap wedge, Nippon 1150 stiff shaft
Callaway Mack Daddy 2 54-degree wedge, S grind, DG wedge shaft
Callaway Mack Daddy 4 Raw, 58-degree wedge, X grind, DG S200 shaft
Edel Rogue putter (thick blade), 34 inch, 71 degree lie, 2 degrees loft, 100-gram round Pure grip
Argolf Avalon (small, semi-circle mallet) 34 inch, 71 degree lie, 2 degrees loft, 100-gram round Pure grip.
