Ping has been trying to muscle in on the better player blade market for a while now and the Ping S57 irons are certainly the best feeling cast irons we have tried in this sector.
From above the look just like blades and the feel and ability to move the ball is excellent. Our only reservation is that the tungsten toe weight makes the heads a little heavy and they are also a little on the small side, which reduces the sweetspot a touch.
However some Ping Tour players are replacing the S57 long irons with a Rapture V2 equivalent, so that could be an option for you.
