Ping I 25's or..????

57 posts in this topic

So, I'm gonna be getting new irons either in June or July, and I'm really liking the Ping I 25's. My question for those that have played or hit the I 25's and other compare able clubs, is there any other irons I should look at.? I want a GI iron, a SGI, not so much.

I'm playing titleist 695CB's and like them, would like a bit more forgiveness though. And yep, I'll be getting fit for them. So..any suggestions.?

Thanks.

I would suggest hitting both the i25 and the G25. You can get an excellent clubhead comparison, because both have the CFS as the stock steel shaft. (quite a shaft!)

CFS Regular = 99 grams / CFS Stiff = 109 grams // both are midlaunch.

I got to hit both during a Ping preview day when the golf shop was almost empty. I did OK with the i25, but I could hit the G25 about 8 yards longer and a bit higher. (A full fitting would probably put me in a G25 w/ CFS R.flex). I have about 79 MPH clubhead speed with a 6-iron.

On GD Hot List , G25 is billed as a GI, i25 as a very friendly Player's. (I'd say i25 performs on the line between Player's and GI).

Hope this helps...

Thanks. Also I see that the shafts are very different from my Dynamic Gold s300's, and the swing weight on my clubs are D 2, where as the Pings are D 0 except for the PW and other wedges, I like the D 2 swing weight, and I'm sure that Ping can build them.

Re: the G 25's, I am considering those clubs too, but the 25's just look really good to me, I'd like to hit some comparable irons as well, just looking for some suggestions on those.

Thanks for the info..

I am currently switching out my TT DG S300 shafts with the stock CFS stiff shafts on my i20s.  I feel my S300 flight the ball a bit too low for me.  I am probably middle to lower on the spectrum of stiff anyway.  Yeah ping can make them whatever swing weight you like.  As far as the i20-25s are concerned it has to be one of the best looking irons that will perform like a GI iron.

As in peak height?  Not sure but not high enough with the S300s.

Thanks...Just a guess, but I "think" my 8i goes about 35-40 yds high, with a distance, again guessing about 140-150 yds.

My 8 is good for 150ish and I would say maybe 30-35(guessing) with the S300s.

Thanks. So the stock CFS stiff shaft offers a higher ball flight..? Not sure if I need, or want a higher flight, depending on how much higher..I'll have to ask them about that.

The Ping CFS Stiff is a medium launch shaft, where the s300 is a low launch one.

It depends on which flavor of True Temper shaft you have. It's best to go check the specs to be sure.

For the XP95 and XP105, the R300 and S300 are high launch shafts - similar to the old Dynalites, but not as heavy.In the Dynamic Golf variants, the R300 and S300 are low launch.

Be aware that the shaft characteristics listed in the club manufacturer catalogs don't always match the TT website specs.

Thank you sir. I'll be sure to tell my fitter exactly what I'd like.

Well i'm not a Ping fan at all. I get sick just by looking at an iron. ( woods are ok tho )

I currently play Mizuno MP 59. this is my second set off irons from mizuno.

I can honestly say there is not a better iron than a mizuno iron.

I'm about to trade them for the more forgiving JPX EZ Forged maybe this is a good pick for you also.

Yes PING can make them any swing weight you want. That's what the tuning ports (weight slugs in the cavity) are for.

I'll bring out a couple clubs for you to hit tomorrow.

Yes CFS will tend to go higher than a dynamic gold S300.

Have you seen the i25 and S55 irons?

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
