for your choices look at everything that is available for the current i200 on PING website.

FWIW the i500 will come "stock" with Dynamic Gold 105.

the toe screw is the weight, no tungsten under the logo.

This is the iron I've been waiting for from Ping.  To date my S55's have yet to be dethroned by any other iron.  On paper these check every single box for me.

If the entire set is low offset and resembles my S55s or the Iblade then I'll play the whole set.

I will be intrigued to see that they were fairly clear about avoiding the term "forgiveness" but really aimed at maintaining ball speed in larger portion of the club face.

Maintaining ball speed plus low offset deserves an order. 5-U perhaps. :)

I desperately want to purchase these, but then I think of the replacement of iBlade, and I imagine those will just be a smaller, bladier, muscley version of these. How amazing does that sound?

The picture alone is enough to convince me to return my p790...thank gawd (or Dunn) for 90 Day return policy!

While this is not a direct replacement of the s55, I have not found a set comparable to how the s55 played - consistent, workable and plenty of forgiveness for its size.  PING knows how to make "player's" irons for wannabes like me!  :)

Let me start by saying I am Ping iron fanboy and that I love the look of these irons but I am still confused with the numbering convention. I understand trying to pull some business away from p790 and T-MB but where do Ping loyalists fall with these irons? Do the iblade/s-series player gravitate to these for more distance and the "forged" feel or are these more for the traditional i-series player who want to play a blade but needs more distance and is willing to giveup more forgiveness?

From the pictures, the head looks more squat than i210 and with a narrower sole and less offset which is the definition of less forgiving which is counterintuitive to the "500."
