Damn those are beautiful.  Too bad I probably couldn't hit them but who cares?  My bag would look better than the other guys.

It's your right to disagree with iTeach; just remember that he's actually out at tour events, with the players, some of which he teaches. I believe what he sees more than what you believe.

These came out at the same time as the i210 and there are lots of those irons in play on tour and the website (Ping's WITB page) reflects this. For i500 ... just an occasional long iron replacement. I guess we can wait and see but I'm not seeing any pros playing hollow-headed irons, from any manufacturer, except in the long irons. Ping's Blueprint forged irons might be the one to break through, although it's still hard to tell from the photos and limited info online if these are solid, hollow, progressively hollow, foam-filled, etc. They look great though.

PXGs are hollow and there are a number of pros with those in the bag. Ap2s are hollow'ish and those are in play. never say never.

Agree ... might just be a matter of time for them to perfect this technology for the shorter irons. Very intrigued by Ping Blueprint.

Teach-

Itís funny how little folks know.

718cb ap2 several callaway irons. All partial or full hollow design with welded faces.

Iím a lifetime blade players who has an i500 retro spec set in the bag for two months.    The distance control is spot on with this set.  Sole is different than Iím used to.  But thatís ping.  Compared to the 790 the I 500 is a scalpel.   The 790 is hot and unpredictable over a 7 iron.  I500 have none of that.

And plenty of ping staffers have them in the long irons.  Cameron champ is one.  Finau.    You can bet youíre about to see tons of 3-5 i500 and 6-pw blueprint irons in the future.  Same construction.

i would suggest to ping to make an I500 tour irons. Slightly smaller head, regular lofts, and maybe decrease the springiness of the face so that it was less of a "distance iron". they look great just tweak it for a tour model.

I believe that's what the "Blueprint" will be.....prayers answered
