First Look: PING i200 Iron

Post image for First Look: PING i200 Iron

PING's new i200 is making its official tour debut this week, and so here's your factory-authorized teaser.

Our initial thought is that the i200 appears a bit more refined than its previous irons in this category. Clean lines, nothing overly bold in the back cavity, and not much in the way of clunk.

Looks pretty nice, right?

We expect to have a full report for you in the not so distant future.

Basically there are 3 categories. Blades, Semi Cavity and Full Cavity
All there is left for company’s marketing from manufacture to separate from another manufacture is appearance

IMO, who cares if they look like Tm or other.
Are ugly or nice? Looks pretty cool to me.
I assume that in 2017, it will be a lot better than what it might look like in all aspects.
The result of an evolution in science and knowledge.
Will try it for sure.

I spoke with our local PING rep yesterday an he is saying mid feb in Fitting carts and “order” for a early March release. Don’t shoot the messenger.

Just great irons. PING always sells truckloads of their i-series irons. This will clearly be a dominant club in 2017. They’ve removed the badges and bling, and per my PING employed source, they’ve concentrated on ONE THING with the i200; distance control via consistent spin across the face. Solid clubs for all handicaps – 20 cappers as well as Lee Westwood class ball strikers.

People see what they want. They are WAY different. I have hit the i200, very nice. But I prefer the iBlade

Rac coin forged maybe more like it?

From the photo, to me it looks like a combination of the i25 perimeter design (and possibly its progressive set design) and the S55 cavity. All with the new iBlade finish. It will be interesting find out. I do like the cleaner cavity look.

So much like a rac…

Looks like a old Taylor made Rac at first glance until you see the hosel! And cast I assume??

Reply

David Moore January 10, 2017 at 1:20 am

Of course it’s cast
The only forged irons they’ve done in the last 10 years have been the anser irons

I seriously. Thought Taylormade was going old school with the 200, 300 series!!!!

Taylor Made 2.0?

Dan Coo Constantine Conti January 9, 2017 at 9:01 pm

I’d like to try them

Reply

Nick Maresca January 9, 2017 at 8:40 pm

Need to see it in person (and hit it too) before I can really judge. I do like the clean cavity; I’m not concerned as others are that the cavity resembles some iron from 15 years ago.

Rodger January 9, 2017 at 7:02 pm

That’s about how far behind they are in the looks department!

Looks like a G iron and an I blade had a baby!

Lee Herman January 9, 2017 at 8:07 pm

Doesn’t matter what they look like from behind. It’s how they look at address… Besides, it’s really what’s under the hood that counts. I’m pretty sure these will perform much better than the RAC OS.

Jim January 9, 2017 at 2:50 pm

As has been said in other forums on this subject, they look like a combination of S55 and TM Rac irons. Don’t understand changing their philosophy of the iron name (iE1, iE2,etc. and now i200)? And I’d like to see them keep some blue accents similar the most current irons as well. That said I think they look ok but would really need to see them in person. And then see if they are as forgiving as the latest model which is pretty good.

It’s the Indian not the arrow! Just because it’s new doesn’t mean it’s better

Reply

Steve Ingerski January 9, 2017 at 7:41 pm

Yup and speed limits dictate how fast cars can go but doesn’t mean new models aren’t coming out each year and doesn’t mean people don’t want to test drive them

just love it when commentary gets profound

The Indian not the arrow? So why are you following a site reports on the latest equipment?

Marios Sergides January 9, 2017 at 6:45 pm

Looks like an s55 without the flatter cavity.

Jericho Das January 9, 2017 at 6:35 pm

Another perimeter weighted club

Karl Doller January 9, 2017 at 5:55 pm

Looks like rehashed irons from the 90s. And I’m a big PING fan. Hope they play better than they look.

First Ping iron i could game!

Bryan Carroll January 9, 2017 at 5:24 pm

Same as others have commented, was just gonna say it looks very similar to a Taylormade iron from about 6-8 years ago?

Reply

Johnny Choy January 9, 2017 at 6:33 pm

More like 12(ish)…the RAC OS & LT was released in 2004.

Bryan Carroll January 9, 2017 at 6:37 pm

Seriously……..? 🙄

Kale January 9, 2017 at 11:52 am

Looks exactly like the old Taylormade LT2’s back in the early aughts.

King Cobra January 9, 2017 at 11:23 am

These look good for Pings , just a pity they’re a copy of the old Taylormade RAC irons .

Ohhhhhh yes, PLEASE!!!!

Looks not too dissimilar from the upcoming Taylormade forged irons. Not that that’s a bad thing as from the photos both sets look pretty appealing.

Mitchell Burney January 9, 2017 at 3:48 pm

Decent!
