Ping i25's

20 posts in this topic

Still the sleekest best looking driver on the market. Now they added racing stripes for alignment, YAY!!!

Can't wait to give this one a try.

Well, I was a ping fan... ;-) Not a big fan of that one.  Racing stripes are for cars.  Can't wait to see the irons though.

edit: my bad, I have not got out much lately.

I will also stick with my i20's although they don't look too bad.

I think the irons look real nice. Id like to see the driver in person. I think they should have kept the driver one solid color but If I hit it good I don't care how goofy it looks :-D

I looked at the irons a little more and I like them a lot I hope some day they will be mine. I feel like they are a mix of the S55's and the i20's(looks wise)

Just from the pics, not a huge fan of the racing stripes, seems to go against the "player" theme of the i-series.  Will have to wait until I see it in person.

Irons look good, seem pretty similar to the i20's, not really much they should or needed to change IMO  Great option for players looking to go to that style of club and for players that are using an older i-series set that want to upgrade.  Love the foggy chrome finish.

So I've never hit an I series and I was wondering how the long irons compare(in size) to the G series? I have G 15's and from what I've read the I series gets progressively bigger. So I just wondered how similar the 4 irons are.

I kinda like the racing stripes. I think it will be easier to align. I can see how it doesn't fit into the idea of a better players driver.

Progressively bigger on a much smaller scale.  The 4 irons are not that similar.

Thank you sir. So is the offset less as well? That's the one thing about the G's I don't like. I feel like the long irons have way to much offset.

Yes the offset on a G20 4i is .29 and the i20 is .20 and with the shape of the G20 head it makes the offset look more severe as well on those.

Thanks again. If you give the 25's a try please let me know what you think in comparison to the 20's.

I probably won't myself.  I am pretty sure they are going to be about the same performance wise.

I don't care for the stripe on the driver, but at least it probably IS useful for alignment, unlike the garish graphics on some other drivers.

The (pictures of) the irons look real nice to me.  Clean and pretty classic.  There is a family resemblance to the S55, which can't be bad.  I had to throw in the caveat because I just came from Edwin Watts getting my first look at the Callaway Apex irons that I had been pretty excited to get hold of.  Something about them turned me off so completely when I got 'em in my hand I didn't even bother trying one out.  Pitty, they look good in pictures too.  Maybe it was the rubber bumper in the back...  But at this point I wouldn't pull the trigger on another set of irons until I got some of these Pings in-hand though.

Irons look pretty nice and what I like about Ping is the eminently sensible approach they take to progression through the set. Been happy with my Wishons for a couple of years now, but I might give these a shot.

I really like how they are built to launch the ball especially in the longer irons.  Unless you are @iacas you jack a ball with the i20 six iron over a 40' fence that is only like 30 yards away. ;-) I do see how some players may want a little lower launching set, but for most of us with average swing speeds they are just right and super forgiving.  Foggy chrome cast boner man!

The G long irons are almost like a mini hybrid, big sole, lots of offset, thick topline.  i20/25 long irons are bigger from toe to heel than the i20/i25 mid/short irons and have more offset but much less compared to the G-series.

I kinda like the racing stripes. I think it will be easier to align. I can see how it doesn't fit into the idea of a better players driver.

Yeah look forward to seeing it in person, maybe the idea will have grown on me by then ;-)

    • I say both - it would be valuable to have this shot in your arsenal, but at the same time, if you can get better with the more standard partial wedge shots, you'll be better off in the long run. But this shot is great to have whenever you have a need to keep it low - if you have overhanging trees, or it's really windy, etc.
    • I like how you worded that because that's exactly how it feels. Basically a shorter swing and I try not to hinge my wrists at all. Just straight back and through to the target. I have to work to get my distances down but 90% of the time it went pretty much straight to the target. It took a lot of guess work out of my swing
    • Well...I got out on the course 2 weeks ago and it wasn't all I had hoped for.  Conditions were tough with all the rain we have had but I still botched more than my fair share of iron shots.  The good news, if there is any, is that my driving and my short game helped me stay below triple digits (shot 99 with a couple penalties).   I am right in the middle of busy season so I haven't been able to work on my swing as much as I would like but pieces are still improving.  My arm structure is looking much better coming into impact, which is also why I think I have been hitting a lot of fat shots recently.  I think that while we have been working on this, I need to remember to keep my "butt on the wall" and give my self space to extend (I asked my instructor about this so I will see what he says.  It also looks like I need to revisit keeping my front knee a little more still on the back swing. Another aspect of my swing that I have been thinking about is my transition.  It looks like I have a tendency to get my hips and lower body moving while my upper body stays relatively still.  I think that is the cause for my steep move as I have to shorten the distance between the club and the ball to catch up.  I asked my instructor about trying to move my upper body more in connection with my lower body.  Just doing practice swing and tinkering around with the mirror, if I have the feeling like there is a rod going from my right hip and connecting to my hands my swing seems to be much more shallow in the transition.  Everything looks better in slow motion without a ball so I will see what he says about this. I am uploading my last driver swing today as I really like how that is starting to look.  Hoping next week my iron swing will be catching up a bit.  
    • A lot of people link all there accounts and will post the same content on all outlets. There is actually an option for it. Hashtags have outgrown just instagram or twitter. Even if they can't accomplish anything. I see a lot of ignorant folks who text with them to add subtle emotion.    For example someone could text me " i just shot a damn 96 today. #golfishard". While ultimately the hashtag is irrelevant (and douchey), it still adds some substance to the text.   
    • Some of those are clever and accurate.  Mine?  No way.  In fact, it's downright inconceivable!
