Re: Ping S58 irons
My swing coach has a PING contract and gets clubs for free (basically a staffer), and he lets me try his irons sometimes at lessons, and generally I try his S59's and S58's. Now my coach, he got his S58's last year and played them once and went back to the S59's.
After hitting both, sometimes side by side, heres my comparison:
- S59 are smaller than S58
- S59 feel lighter than S58 (stock weight)
- S59 have a bit lower launch than S58
Personally I like the S59's a lot more than the S58, and like I said earlier, so does my coach. Now granted they are both great irons, and I might buy the S58's from my coach, but again I just think the S59's are a much better set, and the are cheaper
Also, if you are willing to wait PING is coming out with new irons (S57), but I am not sure when they will be released, but I could find out if you would like me to. This would also make the S59' cheaper, as well as the S58's.
Hope this helps, and good luck finding some irons.
