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: I purchased these irons several years ago and loved them! Perfect blend of looks and play-ability. Last year I bought some Ping Anser irons and sold my beloved S58's. I thought I wanted more "Technology". I like the Ansers, but just today I purchased another set of S58's and I plan on gaming them. I cannot say they were the best Ping irons ever made...but they certainly are the best for me. Everything from flight to feel to forgiveness seems to work for me. If you are looking for players clubs that play like a game improver, look at a used set of these.
Customer Service: Ping has always been top notch!!

Summary: Love the look and feel of these clubs. Much more forgiving than they look. Don't believe all of the "Scratch Golfers" that say you shouldn't play these sticks. I am a 9 handicap and I love them. I take deep divots and they work through the turf quite well. The PING AWT shafts were a pleasant surprise as well. No balloning. A high piercing flight. You can pick them up used for $250 to $300. Just make sure you know your dot color before purchasing.
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.
