Last I heard it wasn't a foregone conclusion that i25s are coming out this year...

Won't be for awhile. The i20 came out this time last year. They are normally on a 2 yr cycle.

A fall release wouldn't shock me, but best bet is this time next year ...

Whenever it is, it is too far away. I was looking at new clubs, but hate to buy anything till I see them. Hoping for something just like the i20's but with the g25 finish.  As it is, I'm torn between i20 and x hot pro, so maybe I'll just wait till the i25 release, even if it kills me.

Original plan was an August/September 2013 release.However, with the earlier mark down of I 20 woods and hybrids that date will most likely be moved up. Ping is not adhering to their traditional two year cycle at this time. G25 release was an 18 month cycle.

I'm hearing a new ladies line (based on G25) will be released at the same time as the I25. Next January will see a new S line and possibly a K25 line. Look for the new Anser line in Aug/Sep 14..

Sounds like dealers are looking for a new SGI line after the recent release of the G25. While most players like the slimmer G25 it has intimidated players looking for SGI features - wider sole, additional offset, etc.

The scuttlebutt is that they did this to sync up all release dates to the spring, and also the merchandise show, and so that they can alternate between i and g series releases each year.  I guess we don't really know it that's true or not until it happens...

I have no knowledge of the actual release but g25 this winter/spring and a new "I" line next winter/spring to stager releases would make be my guess.

The wrx rumors were that the k line was done. I hope that is not the case as the k line was a great line.
PING g25 10.5* vs g30 10* vs a Covert 2.0
PING k15 16* vs Callaway x2Hot 3 wood
Callaway X2Hot 19*,  K15 23* & 27*
PING G25 5 - U. DG XP s300
Cleveland RTX 54* & 58*

I would be surprised if it is sooner rather than later.  The i line was very well received and when Ping has a winner, they are inclined to ride it, unless they have something that is materially better - at least in the iron lines.  Look at the s56 - who would have thought that they would not have been replaced yet?

I hope fairly soon. And I hope they look like the new Anser irons but with the G25 finish.

So kinda like a revamped i5.

I do hope they have same finish as g25, I may have to scratch my itch with g25 4-7 irons.  And finish the set with I25's.

Ping's annual sales meeting is in July if I remember correctly.  Look for them to be released 1-2 months after that.  Same with the S55.
