Ping i3+ Irons Review

  • Club: Ping i3+ irons 3-PW Green Dot 6.0 Rifle Flighted Shafts

 

These irons were not at all what I thought they would be after hitting them. I expected an unforgiving, blade like experience and was pretty surprised how forgiving they actually were. Not quite G series forgiving, but still fairly easy to find the sweet spot with these irons.

The shafts in these clubs are a custom Ping WRX installed and for fans of Rifle, make a perfect match. I do love Rifle Flighted shafts myself, however I do prefer the 5.5 over the 6.0, so these were a tad stiff for me, but no overly so. The ball flight was medium trajectory, just about perfect for my liking.

The distance was great with these irons. I would say about 5 yds. farther on average with most other irons I have played. You do feel off center hits, with this set, but the ball still travels well even when not struck perfectly. The irons are also workable right to left, unlike many Ping G series irons.

All in all, I think Ping has really fought a great balance of forgiveness and feel with there I series irons and the i3+ are no exception. If you are interested in purchasing this set of irons, I currently have them listed on my ebay store.

Ping i10 Iron Set Review

DW 4 GOLF : September 23, 2012 10:30 pm : Golf Blog

9/23/12

  • CLUB: Ping i10 iron set 
  • SHAFT: Ping AWT Stiff Steel

  • Every golfer has heard the name Ping and associate it with high quality golf equipment. For myself, these irons certainly lived up to the Ping reputation.

 

First, some details about these irons that I tested on the range yesterday. The set is comprised of 9 clubs, 3-UW, and are black dot(standard lie), with factory Ping AWT stiff steel shafts. Pretty stock set up for this iron set.

For my game, this iron set is a perfect combination of a smaller, blade-like club, but with the forgiveness of a cavity back style iron. The balls that I hit on the sweet spot definitely felt more like blades, having that great “butter” feel. The off center hits were not totally “clangs” you come to expect with true blade style irons, but instead tended to be fairly straight and only a few yards left or right. You can work the ball pretty easily with these the i10s, but balls will naturally travel pretty straight with these irons. The distance of these irons for me was slightly above average. I was hitting the 6 iron 175-180 yds.

The stock shafts perform fine with this set, but with a upgrade to Rifles or Dynamic Golds, they may perform even better, depending on a golfer’s swing and preference.

As mentioned above, this set is black dot lie. As with most Ping irons, the lie angle can be changed by Ping themselves(highly recommend using Ping) or by a reputable golf shop. With a quality set like these Ping irons, I would recommend having them fitted to really get the best performance from them.

I enjoyed hitting these Ping i10 irons and would have no problems putting them in my bag. If you are interested in purchasing these clubs, I currently have them listed on eBay Store DW 4 GOLF.

Macgregor VIP Forged 1025CM Iron Set Review

DW 4 GOLF : September 22, 2012 7:36 pm : Golf Blog

9/22/12

  • CLUB: Macgregor VIP Forged 1025CM iron set
  • SHAFT: Precision Rifle Flighted 6.0 shafts


I took a Macgregor VIP forged 1025cm iron set for a spin at my local range today and here are some thoughts on these forged irons.

Right off the bat, I could tell these are definitely not a game improvement iron set. While getting warm, my off center hits were rewarded with a nice rattle, but as I loosened up a bit, I was able to find the sweet spot consistently. When hit correctly, these irons feel like butter. I would say the distance is about average for me, I was hitting the the 6 iron about 170.

The Macgregor 1025 cm irons are setup with muscle back blades in the short irons and with a slight cavity back in the longer irons. I love this configuration. I was able to hit the long irons fairly well, in fact I think I hit the 6 iron(cavity back) better than the 7(muscle back). The short irons felt great as well. I think inside of 150 yds, these irons would be deadly.

The Rifle 6.0 shafts are great, but if you don’t have a least a swing speed of 100 mph, they can feel pretty board like. I can play them, but prefer the 5.5.

All in all, I really enjoyed hitting these Macgregors and would say they are a real diamond in the rough. Many golfers just don’t think of the Macgregor brand when buying clubs, but the company has built some real quality equipment over the years.

If you are interesting in purchasing this set, I currently have them for sale at my eBay store dw4golf.
