Looking for Ping I3 club heads

10 posts in this topic

Hey all,

My Ping i3 club heads, well some of them, are wearing out pretty bad. My PW, 8-iron, 9-iron the metal on them are wearing into the grooves, loosing spin, etc.

However, I can't find any on the web.. anybody have any links to buy some? I'm just looking for the heads, I have great shafts.

I think you're probably going to have to settle for buying a set and then re-shafting them.  Might be too tough to find just heads. Always a good place to look

Thanks.. maybe I'll get a new set. I've seen some heads on EBay though. Thanks for the advice!

Yeah I'm sure you can occasionally find some heads by themselves, just saying I think it's going to be rare, the irons are 13 years old.  Who knows, maybe you get the set, hit them and like the shafts that are already in there.  Also can't hurt to have some back up shafts if you do re-shaft the clubs.

Yeah. You should look for some that are slightly newer. Both the i5 and i10 models were pretty similar to the i3s.

Haha, my dad actually got them for free when he was working or something like that... they're old, but work great. I'll look into the i5 and i10. I was actually considering the new Nike irons, the VR Blades is my main choice.

I would caution you against the blades and say look at the Nike combo set.

Yeah agree, not the kind of club for a 14 handicap and obviously not similar to the i3's.  Would also recommend the VR_S forged irons, here's our review

If the cost doesn't bother you, you can go to your local Ping dealer and get new replacement i3 irons made directly from Ping. I splurged on a U wedge for my i3 O-size set this past summer. Ping made a brand new one for me with the same serial number of my set. Just bring a club with you or record the serial number and bring it with you. It may not be the best cost option out there, but if you really like the clubs, it may be an option for you.

You did that this past summer?  I thought they got rid of that program

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
