PING G25 Forged Steel "Made in Japan" vs "Made Elsewhere"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello

 

I just bought the G25 iron set - forged steel made in Japan.

My expectation was that iron sets are cheaper than graphite, my iron set was well expensive though.

 

Where I live only the "made in Japan" version is available and it comes with a high price.

The extra cost holds a promise that the Japanese forged irons have better quality and finish.

Well, I had no other choice...

 

Are they made in a legendary and historic Japanese Samurai steel forging temple by Hattori Hanzo, or what?

 

I guess the clubs available in the US are made in USA and other regions' are made in Taiwan, China etc?

 

Thanks,

Nave

This is news to me as I was under the impression that all Ping heads were made in China these days. With the exception of prototypes which are still manufactured in Dolphin. Any links to more info.?

Maybe its a head/shaft thing they got confused.

However in the pro shop I bought them they promote the whole club set (incl. head) as "Made in Japan Pro Set".

 

The irons' shaft is N.S.PRO 950GH R JAPAN. The head obviously has no "made in" written on it.

 

It's not much help but here is a another shops' site:

The clubs were just released on Monday here, so not much further info available yet.

Nippon shafts are made in Japan. What's the 2nd shaft? The G25 head is a CAST head made in china. The only forged Ping head (in the last 40 yrs) are the Anser irons. They may have been assembled in Japan.
