Description The tour-proven technology of the Ping S58 iron elevates the feel and performance of a smaller, traditional head. The ball fight and distance control preferred by players seeking to compete at the highest levels is achieved through strategic placement of the center of gravity (CG) further back in the long irons and moved forward in the short irons. This results in a slightly higher trajectory in the long irons and a more penetrating, controlled ball flight in the shorter irons. The dual cavity design of the Ping S58 iron combines with a vertical stabilizing bar to enhance feel by positioning the CG towards the center of the face. The width of sole increases inertia and moves the clubhead smoothly through the turf and rough. A thicker cavity near the toe and a thinner cavity closer to the heel moves the center of gravity away from the hosel toward the center of the face for a solid feel. A thin top line and progressive offsets aid in alignment and inspires confidence.
Summary: wow, these bats are amazing. ive had all the S range right up to the S56. just keep going back to the 58. they appear in my hands to be the most forgiving and produce a higher penatrating flight. i use the ZZ65 shaft.

Summary: Bought these used, was looking for players iron with a bit of forgiveness and these suit the description perfectly. The ball flight is amazing. I have zz65 shaft (stiff) and its high trajectory which is what I desire. The loft is higher throughout the set from most brands. I was originally wanting forged (for the softer feel I had heard about) however, the are butter. I don't take a divot and if I do it's barely. I loose distance when I get into it too much... Distance is good, especially for higher ball flight. On Mis hits you loose distance though, but I am a good ball striker I think not the best I have mis hits like most of us but these irons are not that hard to hit like a more tradition blade especially anything before 2000. Great irons, and they don't scratch and ding like forged which I love especially with the finish on it like stainless (tad darker than chrome and not as shiny). Great set and would suggest it
Customer Service: The best.

Summary: After using Ping eye2's for the longest time, and wanting a blade style club for increased workability, I switched to Ping I10's two years ago and the S58 this year. This club is a considerable improvement over the I10 model, which feels dead in comparison. Not quite as sweet as a Mizuno blade when struck perfectly, but not as harsh and more forgiving on slight mis-hits. Great balance of blade feel and workability, but with some forgiveness

Summary: Best PING player's club ever designed. Why do you think Titleist AP1/AP2's look like the S58's? The reason is, PING figured out a way to design a club that looks great at address, can work the ball either way and most of all, it's super forgiving. Ralph Maltby gives this club an MPF rating of 780 pts. Good luck finding them on Ebay.
