Finally dialed in with my i10's!
I've been playing a set of Callaway X-Tour forged irons for the past year, and have struggled to get consistent results out of them. I'm a 7 handicap, but I don't strike the ball in the center of the face often enough to produce predictable results. In the process of searching for the perfect set, I hit the Cleveland CG4 Tour, Ping S59 and S58 and the new Titleist AP1 (great set also). Finally, I figured I would give the Ping i10's a shot since I previously played the Ping ISI-nickels for 5 years and hit them well, and these seemed to be an upgrade to those. The difference being that my swing has changed significantly over that period of time, and there was a bit too much offset in the ISIs for my new swing. I had trouble working the ball and hitting my bread-n-butter shots. The i10 has less offset making it much more workable, but it's still a very forgiving iron. In fact, my misses are straight as a string, which I can live with. And to top it all off, the i10's have a much more attractive player's profile than any of the others I tried or played in the past. I've only played them for 1 week, but was -1 through the par 3's on a course that I usually expect to play them +1 or +2 (plus, it was a windy day). Definitely the most immediate results I've had out of any club change.
By the way, if the AP1 irons had more of a player's profile (more like the AP2's), I might have given them more of a serious look. Tough decision between those and the i10's. It really came down to sticking with what I know worked for me previously. These are definitely great clubs for anyone 12 hc and under who isn't the best ball striker.

ping I-10 review
I had been playing Calloway X-18 with uniflex shafts. Good clubs but a little heavy.Thought i would go back to Ping even after an awful experience with the ISI model.I just could not get over the club that got me here which was the Ping I-2.While i lost some 10 yards in distance i gained more consistencey with the i-10 with the stiff shaft.I can work the ball well and the slim top line does not make it seem like i am swings a bus.The 4 iron is disapointing in that it fells dead and it wants to twist on impact.Other than that i really like the clubs. Hieght 6 foot weight 200 lb 7 handicap
Got to love my i10 Ping Clubs
I love, love, love the set of i10s I just bought. I was playing I5s and wanted to upgrade. This usually take weeks to get used to hitting a new set of club, but not this time. Staight out of the box I played to my handicap. Great feel, I can,t say enough. Love the setup, and topline at address. These clubs make you feel as if you can hit everything. Got to love Ping Clubs

Ping & Mizuno - best golf irons out there
I have to admit, I love the feel of a forged iron, and Mizuno is the way to go for that, but if you're gonna go with a cast iron, I strongly suggest you get fitted for the Ping I10 irons. Black dot is not the standard lie is as say a Taylormade Iron, in fact, it's about .75 degrees flat. I found out after countless web fittings and Ping reps, that I was a green dot. I've played my first 2 rounds with them and I have to say, my ball striking has improved by at least 20%. How important is that? If you're facing a par 3 over water, it's the difference between having the heel or toe of the club grab ground before the ball and sending you Titleist Pro V1 into the drink, or flushing it pure, even a little bit thin
(admit it, we all look up.) and being on or around the dance floor. These cast irons have a nice forged feel to them, and the more you hit them flush, the more addicted to your game you're gonna get. These irons beat out Taylormades, Callaways, Clevelands, Nike, Wilson, & Adams. Believe me...... I've owned and tried them all. Do yourself a favor, if you like the look of a smaller club head, but need the forgiveness of a game improvement club. It's I10's hands down.

ping i10 2-pw steel shaft irons
what i like about the ping i10 irona, is the new design and feel of blade but yet its a cavity back ! great balance and lots of jump off the club, very easy to control the flight and spin the ball ! definately a great decision to buy over the other makers out there.
