Here are the new Ping i Blade Irons. These new Ping blades look close to the shape and size of the S55 until you see the cavity.

The topline, sole width, sole camber and bounce look pretty close to the eye. I could not verify the material but I have a hunch it isnt the same as the S55 irons.

easyyy

Here is the 3,7 and the PW first that came out of Louie Oosthuizen's bag.

Not crazy about the font on the sole, but otherwise, they are gorgeous. They appear ever so slightly wider at the toe part of the sole than the s55. Could be just the pics though

any comparison shots coming?

also, anyone putting these in play at Sawgrass?

Definite progression in the shape of the bottom/sole "pad". Seems vertical on the short irons (presumably to keep a neutral/higher center of gravity) then the pad is angled pretty sharply from what I can tell in the photos in the long irons (presumably to lower center of gravity for forgiveness/ease of launch). Toe looks more squared off than the S55 as well. I'm wondering if the tungsten in the toe is being carried over, it's not visible like the S55. I'm sure there is other tech hidden in these as well.

The New iBlades will be made out of 431 SS, like the Glide wedges and Ping i e irons. They decided not to use plating anymore.

How do the Glide wedges and Ping i/e irons hold up with that material? Ping irons have always been super durable, and I hope these are too.

Can anyone confirm that these are not plated? I thought the 431 Glides were plated, so interesting to see if GolfDoctors comment is true.

Love the durability factor if so!

The Glide IS plated.  Those irons look plated too, although it's hard to tell from a photo of a club that has never been hit.  Hope so anyway.

I wonder what shaft offerings they will have with these.  

It would be great if they went the Callaway route with their iron shafts.
