Seeing as TitleistProV1x hasn't started a new thread yet on the latest Ping irons , I wanted to share this Golf magazine article of the new Ping S56 irons.
http://blogs.golf.com/equipment/2010...ble-beach.html



This is what the clubs look like. I like'em better than the S57 in terms of looks. What do you guys think?

I prefer the old style utilitarian look from the "old days" - at least back then they were distinctive. Now they look like most any other companies' clubs.

Agreed-I like the look of the S59s. I'll reserve judgment on these until I hit them, but on looks alone=bleargh...

I'm waiting for the Anser forged irons. I've owned two sets of PING irons before, ZING, and EYE 2 BeCu, the latter of which I gave to my dad. I haven't really liked any of the newer PING offerings. Very busy and complicated looking.

The forged Ansers look awesome, although wayyy to expensive...

I like them, I bet they will look better in person than that pic. I do agree that they do not look as good as the S57 or S59 but they are not that bad.

As for the Forged Anser if you like them then you should like the i15's

Here are a few more pics, they are being shown @ Pebble according to Ping Twitter.





and as we know, the new Tour-S wedge (this one is Angel Cabrera's wedge according to Ping Twitter)

hmm the tour-s doesnt "look" better than the tour-w but if that is copper I might have to get one. I cant find any up to date copper wedges these days. copper is so soft so to me its really good at chip shots, Not sure about full range shots though

They look like a cross between S59s and the old Rac TP irons.

I like 'em, but I haven't hit many irons that I hit farther or better than my superintendents S59s. TTlites apparently are for cheating LOL, I hit those things way too far!

These irons don't look as bad in person as they do here...

The Anser forged are a lot worse looking in person. Thick topline, very much i15 esque.

    • I guess if you wanted to be like Rickie these are the clubs you buy. Though based on recent form, not sure that's much of a selling point. These clubs look good from the back but I found the top down view far less attractive. Similar to the Hogans where the hosel look disproportionally thick versus the top line of the blade. Just my opinion.
    • They are basically the same. Firmer balls generate more swing speed. A ball with more ball speed goes farther than a ball with lower ball speed. So, for most golfers who generate enough spin, the firmer ball goes farther. For some golfers who generate less spin than they need, a softer ball can help them generate more spin to make up a little distance. Think about this: the “distance” balls of the 90s? The Pinnacles and Top-Flites? They weren’t nicknamed “rock-flites” for nothing. A firmer ball will go farther for the majority of golfers, even if they have a lower swing speed. Two final points: We’re talking about literally a yard or two or three. A ball is not going to add ten yards Other things - like the short game control - matter more. You don’t swing your 5I at the same speed you swing your driver, so it’s not like a Pro V1 or some other firmer ball doesn’t perform once you get to slower swing speeds or ball speeds. This is more true now than ever.
    • Longing for those warm days of playing golf in short sleeves. With this snow, it might as well be *K.  Either way, there is no golf. 
    • Cases are actually dropping in my area. So much so that they had a Covid floor changed back to normal patient care last week. That's a significant improvement. Edit: Maybe not total positive cases but in house patient numbers have dropped. I'll word it that way
