As good as Ping ‘I’ series irons

have been, the i200 surpasses

it in every conceivable way.


Looking at the i200 irons, it’s

hard to believe that it is built for

the average golfer and provides

forgiveness for off-center

hits. The 

top lines are thin, the

soles are modest, with very

little offset

. The cavities are

clean with nothing but a simple

“i200” logo on them.

My primary curiosity, as

someone gaming PING’s

iBlades, was how different the

two sets look. When you set

them next to each other, it’s

not too hard to tell which is

which, but once I had it in my


it was difficult to see

any difference.

Sound & Feel



Ping irons

made a significant leap

forward in terms of feel, and

that progress continues with

the i200.  By using the same

activated elastomer in the

cavity of both the iBlades

and i200, PING has made the

i200’s feel comparable to the

top-of-the-line player’s iron.

Overall the impact feels

soft and

solid and provides excellent


. The sound is robust

and mid-pitched, which also

enhances the solid feel.


PING has made several

face is 30% thinner,

which translates to higher,

more consistent ball speed.


MOI has been increased

by 7%, which

means more

forgiveness. PING 


the sole

with a higher leading

edge and more bounce. Plus,

they coated it with a 


resistant hydropearl finish. 

The i200 irons are longer,

more forgiving, easier to hit,

and more consistent in wet


What’s not to Love?

In the

head-to-head comp-

arison with iBlades

, the specs

are similar, the i200s are the

same length and just 1 degree

stronger throughout the

set. The

i200 does produce

less spin

, which is helpful in

creating more distance and

straighter shots. 

The i200’s deliver the goods
