Spotted: Ping i200 irons

Published

on

PGA Tour winner Ted Purdy hasn’t finished in the top-10 of a PGA Tour event since 2009, but he’s a favorite with golf equipment fans tonight.

The 43-year-old posted a photo on social media of a set of Ping irons marked “i200” that the company is yet to announce. “Now these are sweet,” he said. “The NEW @PingTour i200.”

What’s new about the i200 irons? What makes them “sweet?” It appears that Ping may be spilling the beans sooner rather than later.

See what GolfWRX Members are saying about the irons in our forum.

    Most likely these are miura / shaped by / or custom shaped for x player by ping clubmaker then stamped with “ping” for the tour pro. The masses will get something that looks similar and plays very different. Wake up folks the stuff the big boys are playing is not at all the same so don’t let the marketing fool you. Get fit for something that suits your game and stick with it. I played on small tours and saw this first hand when moving up to the big tour for Monday’s believe me this was over fifteen years ago and this is the way it was and it has never changed.

    Sure looks familiar, didn’t TM do the ribbed look back in 2001?

    Ping has not made a good iron since the eye2. I have hit them all when they came out. Will stick to my mizuno …… thanks.

    Basically, just another deep cavity iron, low back weighting, etc. I am sure it will work because all the others work also. Nothing to get excited about.

    I have a number of sets of pings, Eye2 BeCu, ISI Nickel, ISI BeCu, G30, G30 Max, and any number of drivers and putters. They all work well, but dependent on the lofts they all play the same.

      or the person playing them. I played with a member who had the same set I have, His results are vastly different than mine

    Finally, Ping has made a club I may actually put in my bag since the 1990s. Last Ping I played were Eye2s.

    Hope they offer decent shafts on this model. I am looking at this release to see if they might go that direction. If other manufacturers like Mizuno can offer decent shafts at no upcharge for irons, why can it not be done by PING?

    No upcharge shafts by some manufacturers is classified as upcharge by PING, where I am from it is a very expensive to go outside the normal offerings, especially if you play regular shafts.

    Currently play PING clubs but might venture elsewhere if the shaft selections does not improve.

      look at the base price of mizuno irons and you can understand why there is no upcharge.

    • The Stallion

      Jan 7, 2017 at 11:35 am

      There are 6 no charge steel shafts available. Most golfers can be well-fit into one of those. The I200 will retail for $125/club. Most Mizuno irons retail for $150/clubs. Would you rather Ping up the price across the board like that? I wouldn’t.

    At an equipment website, you see a leaked photo, and you’re meowing about not seeing it top-down? What, are you going to be “that guy” that yells FINALLY when it is officially released? Ugh.

  10. Brian

    Jan 5, 2017 at 1:37 pm

    Agreed…I’d really like to see the topline and the sole.

    They look like TaylorMade RAC LT2 irons from 2005ish. I like them!

  12. TexasSnowman

    Jan 5, 2017 at 10:56 am

    Look VERY GOOD. Note to OEMs; lose the large logos, bright colored badges, etc and give us more options like this.

    This goes for everything in my opinion; for example, as a recreational golfer why does my golf bag need a giant manufacturer logo painted on the it?

  13. Brian

    Jan 5, 2017 at 10:12 am

    Decent looking Ping irons, for a change. I would consider those if they were forged and the production models looked like that. Knowing Ping, they’ll slap a colored badge on and Ugly them up.

    Look like some 20 year old Taylor Made clubs!!

    I saw these in person and at address they look similar to the iblade iron (AWESOME). I was also told from someone I consider a highly reliable source that the MOI on this iron is BETTER than the wide soled G15 from a few years back. With the great looks, if it is truly that forgiving…. THEY WILL HAVE A WINNER!

    these Irons are awesome on of my tour players were telling me about them and he said that there the best iron they have some out with in 10 years. the top line is super thin and the PW to the 4 iron look great the offset is perfect and the performance is great yall are going to love these most of the tour players will switch other then the guys playing the Iblades

      They look flat awesome! I was unable to hit one though 🙁

    Look like a TM iron with a Ping CTP weight. After the elegance of the Ping I series this is a major disappointment at visually. And what’s with the name, shouldn’t it be Ping I-e2 to keep with the simpler names they were loud about with the recent releases, saying that the name would remain the same for each new release? They might still be a very good iron but they’re off to a poor start in my opinion.

    Ping RACs?

    Sweet! Looks like the I25 and S55 made a beautiful baby.

    • Jack

      Jan 5, 2017 at 4:08 am

      Agree! Whoever designed these clubs, S55, iBlade should definitely get a raise. These are beautiful clubs.

    • Excited

      Jan 5, 2017 at 8:34 am

      TOTALLY AGREE!

    Wow. Talk about a straight up TM rip. With just the Ping CTP.

  21. Neil Cameron

    this looks reminds me of TM’s 360 irons a little bit

    Love the simplicity.

    Hope they stay this way, I don’t like badges on the iE1’s.

    Sexy. Looks like the i25 with a cleaner cavity.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods

Published

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods. WRXer ‘Kale_m’ is in the market for a fairway wood and reaches out to fellow members for feedback on the Mizuno ST-Z, and our members have been sharing their reviews of the club in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • bryanwmilburn: “I have the 3 wood with Ventus Black 7X, and it’s the best fairway I’ve ever owned.”
  • JMB83: “I played the 3 wood with Ventus Blue 6s this past weekend, and it was a weapon off the tee. I really like the deep face for that purpose, and I appreciate the more neutral to open setup at 14*. The feel is unbelievable too.”
  • JDW3: “Got mine out on the course today. I hit it really well off the deck and off the tee. I really like that the lie angle is a little flatter. Looking forward to getting out this weekend to get in some more testing.”
  • Kale_m: “Ummmm, this thing is a cannon…Best looking 3w ever though. Turned it down a notch, and it sits perfect. A hook is my miss with the 3w. Not 1 with this in about 15 balls I hit.”

Srixon ZX7 vs Srixon 785 irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been pitting Srixon’s ZX7 irons against the brand’s 785 irons. WRXer ‘AbSWFPGA’ is currently playing the company’s 745 irons and reaches out to members for feedback on the ZX7’s and 785’s, and WRXers have been sharing their experiences with both in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tssgj65: “I played the 785 last season. Went ahead and bought the ZX7 because of the hype. Same shaft in both, but for whatever reason, I am back with the 785. Probably no different than any other iron change, but as of now, I feel more confident with the 785’s.”
  • KPH808: “I’ve had both sets with the same shafts as well. I prefer the 785s, but the ZX7s look much better. I had the 785s in the bag for a while, but the ZX7s lasted only a few rounds.”
  • ace036: “I had the ZX7’s and also ended up going back to my Z785’s. I prefer the shape and longer blade length appearance of the Z785’s. The slightly wider sole works better for me as well.”
  • Haber: “I’ve had my Z785’s for almost 2 years now. Hoping I can go a couple more without switching. I recently demoed the zx7 and the apex pro for fun. Zx7 felt very similar and looked fantastic. Apex pro launched higher and carried a little further, but the sound and feel of the cup face made them an instant turn off. Couldn’t discern too much between the 2 Srixon offerings, so I will be sticking with my z785’s until the next round of temptation hits. I will say dollar for dollar Srixon irons are the best value in the golf market. Hundreds cheaper than the other guys and amazing quality.”
