Why ping doesn't make blades??
« on: March 09, 2015, 10:24:58 PM »
i was at the range yesterday for 2 hours hitting my 303 7iron and i asked the ping rep if i could try their s56 demo
to compare. so we start chatting and he asked my if i still had my personal blade iron (he has seen it before) i said
yes and he asked if he could try it again.

so he says, " if only ping had a blade" i asked him "why there wasn't one?"

he said, " i don't know"

so i google it and its up on wrx.
the answer is

i guess ping is not compromising their founding mission vision despite a potential market for this.

I hadn't seen this before but it's exactly what I always assumed. ping was all about game improvement. Still is. If they make blades they see it as going against their foremost philosophy of making the game easier.

But Muscle back irons were the first GI clubs so I can see it both ways.
