Hey guys, just looking for a little advice here im about a 20 handicap(cant putt) but I hit my irons pretty well and Im currently playing Callaway diablo edge irons. I was at golfsmith the other day and hit a set of ping i10 purple dots(5"10) and I loved the feel and my results on the simulator, and to purchase them after trading my irons in they would be 30$. My question is with my handicap can I handle these irons or am I screwing myself here. Any input would be awesome! Thanks in advance

Ping purple dot are best suited to golfers between 5'0" to 5'7", with a wrist to floor distance of 31¼" to 32½".

Not too much to do with your handicap, more to do with your physicality.

You might need the lie angles adjusted to suit your height.

I hit them for a half hourish and they felt find height wise and I was the hitting the 6i about 175-180 with a nice draw but I'm not sure how much the mat helped me. I really want an iron I can grow with and learn to work the ball and I feel like the diablo irons arent something I could do that with. I just don't want to screw myself trying to be overzealous.

The UK "used Ping" color fitting chart can be a bit misleading.

Take a look at the Ping company site chart to see how the full color grid works.

http://www.ping.com/uploadedFiles/Custom_Fitting/PING_Color_Code_Chart.pdf

Wrist-to-floor is just a rough starting point for clubfitting. A fitter will have you hit some shots and check for best lie angle before making a final decision on upright, std or flat lies. The Ping company chart also gives a starting recommendation on shaft length, based on your height.

As far as the i10 irons go, if you have good numbers they might be a good match. What shaft (model, flex, weight) do the irons have?

As far as working the ball goes, you can hit a basic fade and draw with most any iron model, if you understand how the swing works. An i10 might allow you to flight the ball up and down a little more, but you would have to put in the practice time to learn to do it consistently.

What problems do you have with the Diablo Edge irons when it comes to working the ball?

Thanks for the reply! They are the awt stiff shafts and my main issue with the diablos is the size and lack of true accuracy. One day ill my six 150yds the next 180 and it will feel almost the same. So I'm looking for something with now feedback to produce a better consistent swing. Also I figure I can develop as a player with the pings over the diablo.

The i10 irons will have a different set-up and look than the Edges. If you get the i10 irons, you might get a lesson to help you break them in. A pro could give you some tips on the to get the most out of the i10s.

The Pings are going to better for you in the long run if you are serious about wanting to improve. If you are at least a decent striker of the ball then you shouldn't have any trouble with the Pings. I have always been a fan of the ping i-series. The I-10s are no exception

Never swung the Diablo Edge irons, so I can't compare, but I too like Ping irons. In my case, I have decided to go away from irons "I can work", If they go straight, I'm happy. My irons world "work" when I wouldn't want them to. Any iron you can draw and fade when you want to.

    • Hey, he's entitled to his opinion.  I've never objected to anyone saying they vote for Jack.  I only object when they start trying to justify their opinion with the kind of non-factual nonsense that is contained in the thousands of messages in this thread.  Or this latest nonsense of DiMarco somehow "gifting" the Masters to Tiger.  It's like saying Rocco 'gifted' the 2008 US Open to Tiger by driving it into a bunker on the 91st hole. But I respect his right to his opinion, even though I think it is unsupported by the facts.  Not everyone has dived into the topic as deeply as we have in this thread, and it is indisputable that the 18>15 criterion is still being peddled whole-heartedly by much of the golf media.  So there are a lot of people whoo still reflect that.
    • Now you’re just being smarmy and patronizing. I’m sad for you and your poor decision making. And sad for the people you may infect because you couldn’t do your duty as a citizen. You’ve never had any of the diseases you were already vaccinated for but chose to not participate in this one. The state of Wyoming has died and you couldn’t give a sh*t.
    • I’m glad that you’re comfortable with the decision you made.  
    • Well statistically that’s silly. But nostalgically …to each his own.
