• Custom tuning port sits low in the cavity to promote a high launch, and is made from a thermoplastic elastomer to soften the sound and feel at impact.
• Stabilizing bar is low in the cavity of the long irons to launch the ball higher with greater ball speed. The shorter irons have a wider stabilizing bar for a lower ball flight.
• Tungsten toe weight stabilizes the face for increased forgiveness and accuracy.
• Brushed Satin chrome 17-4 Stainless Steel clubheads.
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.

To help increase ball speed, this iron features a machined face and multimaterial construction (17-4 stainless steel and tungsten toe weight). The CG has been moved slightly back in the long irons (to assist launch) and forward in the short irons and wedges (to better control flight).
Low-Handicapper:
"You can knock down the short irons at will. That wasn't the case with the S56."
Middle-Handicapper:
"Has a nice contrast with the white paintfill on the bottom groove."
Hot:
When strengthening the lofts, Ping didn't merely go 1 degree across the board, but 1 degree in some clubs, and half a degree in others to be mindful of distance gaps. It's the kind of precise thinking we've come to expect from Ping.
Not:
The grip is the same one offered on the super game-improvement Karsten irons. There are better options.
