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.

I purchased these irons half way through last season and in the last month i have lost 3 weights out of my irons. In order to get the weights back in the irons it takes 2 weeks. Since I'm a competitive golfer this doesnt help as I have to play tournaments without some irons. Needless to say I havent been very impressed with theses irons.

I’ve been a huge fan of Callaway all my golfing life. I've used the X-16 for two years went from 19 to 12 then I used the Big Bertha Fusion’s last year and went from 12-10 handicap. I went for a custom fit and the pro specked me out and said that the Ping S58 irons out of all the irons I tried were the ones for me. I went with the computer and tried a few irons out and loved them. I got my new irons last week. Unreal, 20 yards further than the Callaway irons. I've shot under eighty in 2 out of three rounds. Low trajectory is great and the forgiveness is pretty good. I haven’t hit two many shots with the 3 or 4 irons but the rest were class.

Ease to shape shots and vary the trajectory..brilliant.

Dull finish..narrow soles..penetrating ball flight is ideal.

Strike is satisfyingly solid..delivers heel-and-toe performance.
