PING - Tell Me About your Pings - Page 3

post #37 of 48

I'm stuck in Germany without my sticks for a long time, and went to the local driving range to try and tame the "Entzugserscheinungen" (withdrawals).  They only have Ping clubs to rent, so I picked up an i10 7 iron and some no-name brand PW and went at it.  I have to say, that i10 7-iron was awesome.  Forgiving and long.  I was bombing it out there about 150 m (~160 yds, I think), which is about 15 yds further than my old Tommy Armour 7i.

 

One thing I didn't like was I couldn't really tell where on the clubface I was hitting the ball.  It felt the same pretty much every time at impact.  It's either that, or I pured it every time....

Well the G15 irons are awesome but I started playing around with the i15 irons again and found that I like these a lot better especially in the shorter irons...I just like the way they set up better (less offset and thinner topline) so I have stayed with PING but went back to the i15 irons (see sig)...I am now seriously antcipating the release of the i20 irons...bring it!

I am a first time Ping owner....and my verdict is AWESOME.  I recently purchased i20 irons and driver and I have broken my previous best round of 86 with an 85 and 84 in the first 2 rounds.  Nothing but down from here.  And I must admit that the customer service with Ping is second to none.  7 days from order to the range.  I have waited weeks for other orders from other manufacturers.

I got my first set of Pings, the ISI-Ks in 1997 and played them for about 7 years.  The got the itch to switch and ultimately went through 7 or 8 other sets before I finally returned to Ping.  Since then have had ISI-Ks (again), ISI BENis, Ping Eye 2s, I3 blades, S58 blades and now my G10 XGs.  The G10s are an excellent club for mid and high handicaps.  I struggled a bit with the I3 blades and the S58s, but the others were easy to hit and produced great results even with my normal mess of a swing.

 

Not sure if it is the clubs, or the swing improving, but my G10s helped me to reduced my handicap by 5 strokes -am now at low 14.

 

I am also a big fan of the Tour-W and Tour-S wedges - for me wedges have always been a love/hate situation, but I have hit more good wedges with the Tours than ever before - and finally began to experience the hop hop stop and some real back spin.

 

Being a ping owner has a few special benefits.  First, the clubs tend to wear very well and look good for a long time.  Second, Ping will fit and refit your lofts and lies for free as long as the club is a supported model and as long as you own them, even if they were purchased used.

 

So as a mid capper, I think Pings are a great club and a very good ownership experience.

I've tried ZIngs, G15. G2 and I15. All solid, forgiving clubs. I liked the I15 the least, it has a lower ball flight which I personally don't like. If I had the money I would play G15's or 20's, hands down.

I've been hitting Ping Eye2+ since the early 90s and they still feel good!  3-PW.  I had a chance to get them fitted one time while in Pheonix; Ping is a class act.  I really loked the G15s during a recent Demo day.  Still have a Ping-Pal that I like over my Odessey White Hot.

I'm still hitting my Zing 2's they're 3 - LW +1" green dots,

 

I don't feel like getting fit again, I've had these forever, just had rifle shafts and grips installed for this season

I have been struggling with my Taylormade Rac LTs so I got on Ping's website and did the online webfit. When I was at Play It Again Sports the other day I found a used Ping I3 6 iron to my specs and I thought what the heck and I bought it to try out.

 

I went to the range later that day and I tried the TM 6 iron against the Ping I3 6 iron and I gained 50 yards and alot more control with the Ping. It is amazing what having a fitted club can do for you.

 

Needless to say, I went and found myself a set of Ping I3 to my specs. Now I am a Ping guy.

This is hilarious.

Had tried ALL the other clubs.......Wilson 1200, then Staff... then Hogan Edge,... then Top Flite Tour and finally tried Ping i3 OS. WOW what a difference. I recently bought a set of G10 and love them. Best club I ever hit. Ping are the best for average golfers.

 

Also, I actually tried the "original" Karsten I around 1969-1970. The guy behind the counter said they looked awful. Let me try them and I must say, they performed very well. Looked weird, but hit wonderfully. Unfortunately I let the guy talk me into the Wilson 1200 instead.  Worst mistake I ever made.

Just got my i20 irons two weeks ago and outside of bit of adjusting left to do with the 4 and 5 iron...I've been more consistent that ever.

if you can get your hands on a Ping Chipo, they are great around the greens and in trouble spots..
