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 like the driver..The racing strips set it apart from the others.

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 ;-)

    • This is a totally reasonable approach.  Thought I'd throw in my method for this as another option. I hold the club sticking straight away from belt buckle or so, parallel to the ground, with my right hand.  Then, with my hand splayed out a bit (not crazy stretch or anything, but not fingers touching) and flat, I choose an angle to hold my left hand, place the handle in the "right" position, so resting on the middle section of my pointer finger, resting on or a touch towards the wrist from the bottom knuckle of the pinkie finger.  Then wrap the fingers onto the handle, then roll the hand towards the handle to a comfortable spot. For me this method gives a consistent grip, and I can control strong/weak just by the angle of my left hand before I place the handle.  If my left hand plane is perpendicular to the ground, I'll get a super strong grip, too strong.  With the left hand plane parallel to the ground, I'll get a weak grip, probably too weak, though for me I don't think it ends up as overly weak as the perpendicular way ends up over strong. If I have time tonight maybe I'll take some pics to make this clearer... I've always felt this way too, but I've often wondered if more knowledgable players or instructors also liked to see the full speed clips to get a feel for the dynamics of the swing.  Like, maybe at full speed you can get a feel for the dynamics and athletic motions a player is trying to use that a player is trying to use that wouldn't be obvious at slow speed.  Maybe that might help an instructor decide which things are a priority, or which path or feel or drill towards fixing something is most likely to succeed with that player? I suppose you're saying that's not true, at least not for you?  Like, you get all of that from the slo-mo?  Or that might be useful for an instructor of tour players but the shit we've all got wrong with our swings is so basic that it's not needed?  Something else?
    • I handed out a bunch of likes in this here thread. Ready golf or GTFO!! 
    • noted. and, thank you.  
    • ...and I can change from suit and tie to full-on golf attire in 10 minutes flat, while doing 50 mph!  
    • Like I said… your tempo is probably too slow if you can't get a 30-footer to the hole on slow greens. You're not hitting a lot of greens, so even two- and three-putting that often is not a great sign. You're not often putting from 40 feet away like some people who hit more greens. You're putting after a chip or a pitch shot more often, and those tend to be shorter putts. Start a Member Swing topic or post video of yourself hitting long putts to it if you have one already.
