Salty Dog: G15 irons (5-S), Ping Tour W wedge 60*

Wanted to throw it in the pond the first month i used it after switching from Mizuno MP-57. After 3 months, starting to like it. I'm getting back to my old distance and more, surprise that my 7 iron can hit 150m. And yes, there is not much roll on the G15 which is good for distance control when you attack the green. I'm not changing my G15 anytime soon. Smile

Good resale value for Ping because it is damn expensive to buy as new. Smile

bro salty dog,
good to know that your 7 iron so far lei..brad doing a good job on you Smile
just for info, the g15 has stronger loft as compared to the mp57

example 7 iron:
ping g15 = loft 32*
mp57 = loft 35*

so i would not be surprised if you are 1 club longer when u compare g15 with mp57.
only issue to consider is the gap from PW to your SW may be too big.

G15 PW = 45*
MP57 PW = 47*

Hi bro,

You are full time monitoring the forum or what? Smile

Yes, the loft on the Ping is much stronger. That's why i invested in a gap wedge in between PW and SW too. Smile

You can make your Muira stronger too since it is forged. Smile

If I ever get to go back to the US again, I'll go on a massive golf shopping spree... maybe even spend my unborn child's unaccumulated college fund Laughing

Has anyone used a ping wrx option (in US) to grind the sole on wedges? Ping's current offering for both 50&52 deg Tour-W has 12 deg bounce

Would grinding 4-6 degrees of bounce be too much? expose the steel to rust etc.

Wonder why Ping designed a very high bounce on a gap wedge. Suspect I prefer 6-8 deg bounce on my GW for those tight lies.

your thots?

No lah..

I used to hate Ping irons when I started golf, to be frank the look is damn ugly. But nowadays, the look is acceptable. After trying my first time with I10 irons, got hooked and the rest is history liao....

If not for my friend who pester me to sell him the i10 irons and only the one i am using, i will not have switch to S57 irons. Then backside itchy again as someone looking for S57 came around and was without ping irons for about 2 weeks, try using my old Golden Ram but not so use to it.

i15 came by and hope into the bag...hehehehe.. so far at the range so good...think it will be in the bag for sometime...wat's lacking now is the wedges and Anser/Redwood putter...

bro, I have both tour-w and a karsten anser.

Owned vokey sm, cleveland cg10 to 14, Mizuno MP-R and TM Z/Rac, and finally concluded, the cast Ping Tour-W sand wedge is the one for me. It felt equally good as the other forged wedges. Heavy head gives solid, meaty feel with little/no harshness. Expect less spin. I make less fat shots with this wedge, maybe it's the sole design. If only they have a low bounce option on the gap wedge....

Karsten Anser is underrated coz its positioning as low price putter. Yet tour players use them, very suprised to see a few in those WITB articles. If not for my Scotty which is just sooo good, I would use my Karsten. Solid for a cast, non-milled putter.

I dont get the feel for their premium offering, the Redwood though. Scotty suits me more.

Have recently purchase the G15 20* hybrid. Easy to hit, eay to launch, nice distance. If only the irons were not so expensive.

However, there is a small hole on the sole of the club, near the heel. Can someone enlighten me on the purpose of the hole? scratch
