• Designed for players who put shot control as their top priority
• A steel body with variable tungsten toe weighting positions the CG for higher launching long irons and lower trajectory short irons
• Machine milled face and grooves ensure consistent performance
• Stabilizing Bar Technology varies in width throughout the set to optimize the CG position in each iron
• Narrower stabilizer bars in the longer irons generate more distance and the bars progress wider through in short irons to generate penetrating trajectories
Engineer and inventor Karsten Solheim got his start as an engineer working for GE in Ithaca, New York. His passion for the game set him on a journey to create a better putter. At the time he thought he was simply building it for his own personal use, but in 1959, Karsten’s ongoing garage experiments yielded an innovative putter he called 1A design. This putter had very distinctive design qualities, among them, a unique tone at impact, a sound that would echo throughout the game for generations to come…“Ping.” The Anser putter began a long and proud history of truly innovative equipment design throughout Ping’s entire product line (ultimately resulting in over 400 patents) that has set Ping at the top of the list of golf design and manufacturing companies. The company is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. Karsten Solheim has passed away and his son John has taken the helm.

A tungsten toe weight (for higher trajectory) is used in the long irons. The middle and short irons have a progressively smaller and deeper weight that pushes the CG forward for a more controlled flight.
“The impact and turf interaction are a bit shallower on good shots, which tells me they’ve done a nice job on the sole design.”
“It has an old-school blade look at address that’s sweet, but these are not for the aspiring better player. You already need to be one.”
A club that will make you think of a smooth-handling car. The S56 provides an extra “pow” at impact and is a nice respite from the more boxy look of most Ping irons.
The lofts are among the weakest in the category. Players seeking distance will have to bring their own.
