With most Ping irons, you either loved them or hated them, but the Ping S58 irons could change all that.
Response from their Tour players has helped shape the new design and performance from the prevous S59 model.
Aimed at the better player, the S58's are certainly more traditional in shape, with a compact head and nice clean lines. Our only complaint is that maybe the heads are too compact and at address may make less confident players unsure of their suitability.
Moving the centre of gravity back and then inserting the tuning pocket lower and closer to the face gives these irons fantastic feel for what Ping claim is a blade design.
Right throughout the set, the feel is great and it is easy to move the ball flight left, right, up and down. The feel and consistency from the club face was great and the level of feedback on off centre hits about right.
Combined with Ping's excellent custom fitting service, then these are a set of irons that all better players should seriously consider.
