The Ping S59 irons are defintely the best looking iron Ping have produced to date and are very easy to use.

They are blade-looking but perform more like a cavity back hybrid with excellent playability and forgiveness. Performance is good throughout the S59 set, although better players will want a little more feel in their short irons.

Given the Ping S59 is aimed at the lower handicappers, we think the cast heads don't give as much feedback as the forged cavity/blade hybrids offered by competitors. However better players will also want custom fitting which is another Ping strength, so if you are a Ping die-hard you'll love them.

We like them too, but we feel there are slightly better models out there.

I have had my set for ten years. Recently looked into replacing them with either Titliest AP2 or CB also looked at the Ping iBlade but prefer the look and feel of my S59's Had them re-griped with composite Golf Prides and am loving them even more. Being a cast club the grooves are still as good as new. I think the wedge from the set is the prettiest wedge ever.

Nice iron and dont mind how they tend to come in a little lower with more spin.

I have wanted these clubs forever, so glad I finally got a set along with S59 wedges. I am a 14 handicap and have been using these clubs since last year. I anticipate a great year for 2016 as I have found them to be very forgiving clubs.

I have returned to Ping and have found the S59 clubs to be excellent from 3 to PW. I also have the tour lob wedges and the look is the best Ping have done in a long time. Any sub 10 handicap player can only become more consistent with these clubs.

The Ping S59 irons were a decent set that was easy to use. Solid and performed well. One of the nicest looking Ping iron's I've seen. Sit well and get the ball up and on a penetration flight very easily. The feel at impact is also quite good. A bit surprised with how much I liked them.
