I just received these yesterday after the long 9 day wait and boy was it worth it! I got these clubs custom fitted, CFS Stiff shafts Black dot and I just got off the driving range from hitting the full set for the first time and could not be happier with my purchase. I hit these clubs smoother and straighter than i have ever hit irons before. it would appear as though the whole club face is a sweet spot making them very forgiving. I highly recommend these irons to anyone with even moderate skill or above. I could swear i gained about 5 or 10 yards per club out of all this as well. Ping really came out with a great model this year. VERY IMPRESSED!

I play to a 12 hndcp and have the G15s...was strongly considering the i20s but am a little concerned they are beyond my abilities.  Your initial results have me intrigued to say the least.  I have an appointment for an upcoming PING fitting with the sole intent of trying the i20s.  I hope for similar results!

I am around a 15 hndcp and have the g5's and have been thinking about getting new irons. I went out yesterday and wanted to get fitted for new pings. After swinging the i20's, I didnt want to swing anything else but i swung the g20's and didnt like them at all. The i20's feel so smooth when hit, and is more forgiving then i thought they would be. I went and placed my order for the i20's (4-pw,sw) and can not wait till they get here.

You have made a great choice. I have played two full rounds with mine and my ball striking and accuracy have already shown improvement. What setting/shafts did you get with yours?

I love mine. I bought the driver and 3 wood as well. Probably get an i 20 hybrid too. Ping has hit a home run with these sticks.

I love my driver and will never put a 3 wood in my bag again but I like the way there i20 17* hybrid felt but I love my g5 19* hybrid right now. I might look at there i20 5 wood too.

I also just got an email today from the place I ordered my i20's from. They just received my clubs today and will be shipping them out tomorrow. I got them 2nd day air so HOPEFULLY I will have them before I play on Sunday.

My clubs came in last night, so I will be going to the range tonight after work to hit them. I can not wait and I hope I like them. Wish me luck.

I had a chance to demo a g15 7iron side by side with an i15 7iron and found the i15 to be plenty forgiving and my handicap is probably around 30+. I just have a hard time mentally with the clunky look of the G series and similar irons.

Here is a recent Ping i20 Irons Review from the 2nd Swing Golf Blog-- WITH pictures everyone!

To some up the review: The Ping i20 irons compete in the player's club market, but are far more forgiving than most in that class, making them great for mid-handicappers as well!  Time and time again I've heard how forgiving these bad boys are, makes me want to hit them myself!

The i20 7iron to the g20 iron is an even more striking comparison.  Both equally forgiving, but the i20 is more workable.  This review actually compares the i20 7iron VS G20 7iron specifically:

"They’re [i20s] a player’s club, but mid-handicappers could certainly benefit.  Just the other day I sold a set to a guy who blended the G20’s with the i20’s.  Everything from the 7-iron through Wedge was i20.  I fitted him at the 7-iron for both the G20 and i20, and we found out that he hit the i20 7-iron equally as well as the G20 7-iron.  So, he went with the i20 because it allows him more workability.

Played with my new i20's on Sunday. I shot an 83 (which is a pretty good round for me). They feel great and a lot more forgiving then I thought they would be. Great clubs.

I own them in green dot 2 upright with stock ping stiff shafts.  I have broken my person best rounds 4 times since owning them.  I also have the driver 9.5 with stock stiff and I have never driven the ball this well in my life.  And I also have the 14 degree 3 wood in project x 6.0 and I can say that after not having a 3 wood in my bag for the last 3 years because I just can not hit one, I am now a green hitting machine on the par 5's.  And I have yet to miss a fairway when I opt to tee off with it.  I am so impressed with Ping that I just added a 58 degree tour s wedge.  I am a long time Taylormade honk and I just got fed up with a new set of irons and drivers come out from them what seems like every other week, I decided to make a huge change.  I have never been happier I am now a Ping guy for life.

After being fit, I finally took the plunge and bought the i20s (7-UW)...green dot, +1" and dynamic gold X100 shafts.  They are a massive improvement for my game from my G15s. In the last 2 mnths I have dropped from a 11.8 to a 8.4 hncp...these irons are awesome!  I am hitting so many more greens and just love the look and feel of these sweet irons.  Anyone considering upgrading to the i20s should not hesitate...these are the real deal!!!!

    • I've been Playing Golf for: Almost 30 years. I started when I was 22.  My current handicap index or average score is: A mess right now. 2 years ago I got my handicap below 8, but right now I don't feel like I could even break 100. Thus this thread.  My typical ball flight is: Fade The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: For 15 years I fought a snaphook. I played a draw, but when it went badly golf was no longer fun. So, the last 5 years or so, I've played what I hoped was a power fade. Now however I'm trying to eliminate the weak fade with the driver and the hosel rocket with my irons. (The hosel shot sucks as much as the snaphook used to.) Videos:  Before I get to the videos. Here's some stuff I'm working on:  And and Now some video: I know this is shot in my basement. But I just can't get any time to get to the range. So, I figured I could at least use this to practice taking video. I attempted to shoot this straight down the toe line.   This is the caddie view.    I realized I was a little close the camera. So, I tried to do the Caddie View again. Of course I realize I still have a way to go. These swings are far from perfect. They are, however, perfect examples of where my swing is right now. 
    • I'm in the market for a new hybrid and am looking for suggestions.  Let me start by saying that I am a notorious cheapskate and always looking to maximize value. So I started out looking at a generation older club to save some money and was debating between the Ping 410 ($169 new) and the Callaway Epic Flash ($199).  I had kind of settled on the Callaway figuring that the fact that it was a bit newer and adjustable where the Ping wasn't so therefore worth the extra $20,  Then I started to wonder is a new Callaway Mavrik might be worth the extra $50 over the Flash.  Unfortunately I don't know if I'll have much luck demoing the older clubs as the stores tend not to keep older demo clubs around.  Best I could probably do it tape up a new club, so I'm not sure I can tell much from hitting them. So, can anyone provide any feedback on the clubs I'm considering, or are there better options? 
    • I used to have a really high ball flight. it was pretty routine for the ball to be in or an inch from the pitch mark. I have several pics I took over the years of the ball embedded in the green. I KNEW where my wedges would land. Injuries have altered my swing and now I have a lot less arc. On a completely unrelated note, I tend to hit a club weaker than I used to and routinely see the ballrun off the green at which point I mutter aspersions against the green not holding...truth is, I needed that trajectory to control my distance.   that is the best reason I can imagine for a high trajectory...distance control.
    • Any golfer can get fitted for their golf clubs, it's a matter of how much you'll be getting out of the fitting session. For a relatively new golfer to the game, the benefit might not be as obvious as someone have been playing the game for awhile.  How can you fit a golfer when the golfer's game is still evolving and changing ?  So, you might get some benefit out of the equipment fitting if you don't expect the fitting to change your game drastically. I caution using the word drastically, because going from a 12 handicap index to an 8 is a drastic change in relative short time.  Going from a 23 index to a 15 in one season is drastic.  Going from an 8 index  to a 2 will also be drastic in a short timing. Most the golfers will never drop below a double digit index if they're only the weekend warriors . Imagine giving a relatively new driver a world class sports car..... how much can the driver do with it ?   But.... if one has the dough to blow, why not pretend he is the F1 driver.
    • Like I said before, I’m not a good player, plus I only play once a week. Our local  dealer wanted $875 for a 6-A wedge. I wound up buying a used set of 714 AP1’s in great shape from a guy in a neighboring town. They are a 5-A wedge, but I’m going to re-grip them,  so I’ll be all in at about $310. Those T300 irons sure are nice looking though.
