Ping’s new iBlade irons, the much anticipated successor to the company’s S55 irons, will make their debut at The Players Championship this week.

Ping isn’t releasing any details on its new blade irons until late summer, according to a company representative, but that won’t stop GolfWRXers from speculating. We snapped in-hand photos of each of the new irons (3-PW) here, and have added photos of the 3 iron, 7 iron and Pitching Wedge below.

  1. I like it when they show the 3 iron but who plays those appart from pros and folks who are playing for 30+years. Though I could see those in the bag but will stick with my i20s till something blows my mind.

  2. Someone hijacked Double Mocha Man’s name on another article and posted “69” when answering a question from Ron M. about his putter loft…. If anyone knows any details about who did this please let me or golfwrx know (preferably me)

    • Ping uses deflationary protracted recession forging on some irons, especially at their Japanese foundry….
      A blade is simply a colloquial term used to broadly define a style of club with a thin(ish) topline, minimal offset(respectively), and a lack of traditional cavity…

      Historically it was assumed that a blade would be forged chrome and have very little in terms of angles and then search… That has obviously changed technology and God’s abilities of five decades…was assumed that a blade would be forged chrome and have very little in terms of angles and then search… That has obviously changed our golf sensibilities due to technology over the past 5 decades…
      In short, a blade of today could be considered a game improvement iron of the 70s…

      Hope that helps

  3. I’ve never been a Ping guy (except I’ve liked a few of their bags and accessories – like my trusty rain hood), but these look awesome. If they don’t add any weird colors or rubber pieces, I’d at least demo them. Ping stuff has always looked a little more industrial than I prefer, but these are stylish while still being clearly “Ping.”

    • Ha ha, exactly my thought. And they they will test them agains real blades and marvel about the “forgiveness” they have. Like when they test S55s against blades in the “better player category”

  4. So why not the s blade to keep the lines simple? It looks great though. Hopefully they expanded the custom shaft offerings. You couldn’t put a DG in the S55 without an up charge.
