Ping i500 irons review and photos: ClubTest 2020

New Ping irons, wedges, junior clubs

For the second installment of ClubTest 2020, we tested and reviewed 57 new iron models to help you find the right one for your game. Below are the results for the Ping i500 irons. You can find the full list of irons and test results here.

Price: $1,400 | $163
Set: 3-PW
Our take: Tucked inside a sleek blade profile is a hollow-bodied construction comprised of a 17-4 steel body and C300 steel face that provides what PING calls metalwood-like performance. A HydroPearl Chrome 2.0 finish ensures control in wet or dry conditions.
ClubTester’s take (5-hdcp): “Just goes forever. Tough to tell when looking at the profile. Hides the forgiveness well.”
Robot’s take: A high-flying players distance iron compared to the group average.

PING i500 Irons

This blade style iron is geared towards the low-mid handicap player that is seeking minimal offset. Players can expect a softer feel on shots struck across a larger portion of the face.The i500 is constructed like a metal wood (hollow stainless steel body and maraging-steel face), which is the same material in G410 fairway woods and hybrids. At impact, the clubface flexes like a wood, which results in faster ball speeds and longer shots than previous models. The irons have a milled face and grooves as well as the HydroPearl Chrome 2.0 finish (rough face texture and smooth on the sole) to improve shot consistency from imperfect lies.
