Love the look of these ones but the paintfill in the numbers looks like someone accidentally went with bold on the 4, 6 and 8 irons..

Either way, these are my favourite looking Ping irons in a long time

Look cool!

Any info on approximate release date?

Are they a true solid muscle back or are they hollow?  If hollow, is there something in the cavity to improve sound/feel?

What's with the toe screw?

Doubt they are hollow other than maybe a drilled cavity for swingweighting.

Let me guess.... “forged” face welded to hollow steel body. Unless it’s filled with something to make the feel better and the welds hold up then pass..... look nice though.

Ugh, who could play with shovels like that. Give me the softest single atom of Japanese steel forged deep under Mount Fuji by master craftsmen who have never been to the Earth's surface at the end of a rebar pole any day.

Look to be exactly what Ping loyalists on this site have been asking for.

A traditional shaped true mb , forged , with simple lines , and minimal offset.

Needs to be rebadged as the " wrxer spec " , drop the word " blueprint "

Great looking.  As with most Ping irons they replace, they’ll be ones to jump to this and then ones to stick with the iblades.  I’m too comfortable with my iblades for now.  But this is WRX!

I’m not convinced Ping and forged go together. I will be interested to see if these feel/sound good. This has never been Pings “blueprint”. BB
