Description The S57 Iron provides golfers who prefer a tour-inspired design the ideal blend of feel, forgiveness and distance control. The small, stainless steel head is engineered as a players iron with an increased moment-of-inertia. A dense tungsten toe weight, longer hosel and a small cavity combine to raise the MOI for the additional forgiveness.
Summary: Re Gotti 40 review.
You must get tired of talking about yourself to strangers. as they are the only ones who would talk to you. I presume friends are something of a rarity like your lost balls during the year.
If you are soon damn good why doesn't a professional tour card belong in your possession ?
To all the other genuine golfers who have done the review I thank you for your honest, well intentioned feed back and I have now purchased a set of s57 irons.

Summary: I have played a lot of irons and I have to say that these are one of the best. They have all the playability of blades with the forgiveness of a cavity back. Unlike others I have not lost any distance with these from my previous irons which were Mizuno MP-37. I was worried coming from the forged Mizunos about how these irons would feel but I have found them to feel great off the club face. They are not as buttery as the Mizunos but they feel soft and powerful when struck, the only thing I could equate it to is when you hit a racquetball. You feel the ball compress then rocket off the face. If your looking to step up to blades but still need a little forgiveness these are definitely the irons for you.

Summary: So, I would like to preface this review with two points, maybe three. I read every possible product evaluation and review available before making a purchase, and I have never contributed my feedback on a product until now. I feel I owe it to other golfers who like me rely on these quick summaries. I don’t work for PING either. I have demoed and been properly fit for all the iron sets I have gamed, which is a crucial element in performance. I owned and played sets to include Mizuno MP-30 and MP-32, Titleist 804os and 735cm, Nike blades (waste of $$), and Ping i15’s.
What I learned from that journey is that the S57 iron set is perfect for the better ball striker who reliably shoots in the low 80s or better. The accuracy, workability, consistency, and feel are unmatched. They inspire confidence during the pre-shot routine from the moment you pick up the iron. The top line at address is balanced to provide confidence from both fairway and rough lies without even noticing it. The offset allows the experienced golfer to adjust each shot for maximum workability, and these puppies throw darts. My natural shot is a mid draw, and I couldn’t be happier with how these iron stick to greens.
Yes, for those of you wondering, these irons do offer some advanced technological forgiveness. Most important of which I believe is the sole width and tungsten weight in the toe. Feel wise, there is nothing better when you pure one… Crisp. And I think you will notice I didn’t say softer, Mizuno rules the market on that front. I worked my way from larger cavity backs to more blade like irons and now shoot consistently between 75-83, with an 8 handicap. Obviously each swing like golfer preference varies. But I challenge you to, at a minimum, consider these irons if you fit the criteria and are comparing similar models from other manufacturers. The course performance of is unparalleled. You can pick up a new set on EBAY for $400. Good luck in your search.

Summary: I have to start by saying if you would have told me 10 years ago I would be a Ping guy I would have laughed. I have always thought their club heads looked like shovels. Not anymore. Besides my wedges, it's all I have in the bag. S57 irons, G-10 3-wood and Driver. At my best, I was a +2 and always played blades (various models of Hogan Apex). I averaged 50 rounds (at least) a year. Last year I was lucky to play 15. I now play to a 4 or 5 and don't have the chance to practice much. The blades have outlived their usefulness. I was convinced I needed a more forgiving club but wasn't willing to go from forged to cast. The Pings changed my mind. I tried the AP2, Adams CB1, X-Forged from Callaway and the S57. The AP2 and CB1 both had higher trajectories than my current clubs and I just didn't like the feel of the Callaways. The S57 was everything I was looking for....lower trajectory, thin top line blade look, minimal offset and forgiveness. You can hit these things off the toe, heel or sweet spot and not have a wide shot dispersion and the distance control is great. Not sure if a higher handicap would find these as appealing but for a low handicapper who doesn't play to where his game was 5 years ago, they make the game a little less frustrating. They are definitely worth the investment.
