Hi all, long time reader, first time poster!

I have only just noticed that on my 6iron, there is a very small segment of the black plating on the back of the clubhead that is missing, just to the right of the 'a7' logo. I've attached a pic of the 7iron for comparison. Do you think that the absence of such a small section of the plating could in any way affect the performance of the club, or is the issue mainly cosmetic? I can't say for sure how long it's been liike this as I'd only noticed it when cleaning the clubs earlier. Would've thought it'd be a one-piece plating, but for some daft reason it isn't :unsure: I did hit the 6iron on a couple of occasions today and can't say that I felt anything wrong... Thoughts?

I had something fall out the back of the 9iron of my Ping i25s. Can't say I ever noticed a difference. I'd say cosmetic.

Appreciate the replies (y)

@Bratty Given Ping's favourable customer service reputation, weren't you inclined to see if they'd fix that for you? I know I would be, but that's maybe partly due to my OCD :LOL:

Admittedly, the set from which my pics are posted was a cheap punt from golfclubs4cash, but I've always liked the Adams equipment and I do get on with these clubs. They date back a good few years but it does make you wonder about the quality of manufacturing... or perhaps the care afforded to them by their previous owner(s) :unsure:

The centre plating panel is very slightly loose to the right-hand-side of the 'a7' logo so I'll keep an eye on that - maybe a DIY job for the trusty Gorilla Glue...

The plating won't matter, but if the dampener comes off then that might. I've got the same problem with mine. I'll be glueing a plate on this morning and also one of the rubber? dampeners is coming away, so will be popping some gorilla glue into that bit as well.t
