  • Ping S59 Irons: Great Irons, but Not for Everyone

    Feb 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great look, great feel, able to work the ball in all directions, fitting
    Cons: Only for the better players

    Summary: I have been kicking around the idea of replacing my Ping i3 irons for a few months and decided that I would give the new Pings a shot when they came out. Hence, when Ping rolled out the S59 irons I was ready and willing to make the change. The S59 iron ... read more

    Pros: Good Looks, Excellent Workability and Control, Some Forgiveness
    Cons: ....

    Summary: There are a number of reasons to like Ping's golf products no matter how good your game is or high or low your handicap is. It seems like Ping's products made for every type of golfer are among the best you can get. I had never really hit any of their ... read more

    Pros: Great Feel, Great looks
    Cons: Can't think of any

    Summary: Back in April I decided to trade in my G2s for the S59s. It was a tough decision - my handicap was inconsistent to say the least as i would shoot somewhere between 85 and 95 and everything I read suggested these irons are for the better player. After ... read more

    Pros: solid, consistent, forgiving, good feel and very high quality. look old (good for security reasons)
    Cons: getting hard to find, I guess they don't look as fancy as the newer irons

    Summary: I bought these irons about 7 years ago. I went in the shop to get fit for a set of clubs and have something custom made, I was in for a surprise, someone had just traded in a set of lefty eye2's for some i3's (my one time struck with luck). I was fit, ... read more

  • Ping S59 Tour Irons

    Sep 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Playability and control
    Cons: Cast club that feels a little harder than other blades

    Summary: The Ping S59 Tour Irons are a blade iron with a slight cavity back that provide a certain level of forgiveness while still providing the playability and feel of a blade. The main difference between the S59 Tour and S59 irons is the fact that the Tour ... read more

  • 10 reasons to buy the Ping S59

    May 5, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A blade with some forgiveness! How cool is that? Ultimate custom fitting.
    Cons: Pricey, odd looking, painful when hit poorly.

    Summary: Ping irons are not your usual golf clubs. They look different, they are made different, they feel different. And it should be fair that right from the beginning I confess my deep admiration to Ping, being a former I3+ player for a few years until Mizuno ... read more

    Pros: Perfect feel through entire swing. Incredible control and distance compared to i3's.
    Cons: The tour s59's are flawless!!!

    Summary: I've been playing the i3 o-size clubs since they came out. Over the last two years I've played pretty much daily and I'm now at a 10 handicap, although I sill feel like I could be lower (lots of stupid mistakes). I told myself when I got to a solid 10 I ... read more

  • Ping S59 Irons Mid to low handicaps

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great weighted club, easy to aim and set up.
    Cons: You will know when you hit a bad shot.

    Summary: Immediate feedback on swing is the best way to describe these irons. I am a mid handicap player and had tried a set of OS cavity backed irons from another manufacturer. Just did not like the way the weight was distributed and how most cavity backed irons ... read more

    Pros: Blade like look, Ping quality, some forgiveness
    Cons: Not any except for maybe the high cost if bought new.

    Summary: First let me start off by saying that I understand that my 13 HCP may not call for me to hit this type of iron, BUT I've always liked the look of blades which is less off-set and a thin top line........... These may NOT be true blades BUT they are VERY ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ping brand name, very attractive looking clubs, very good metal inserts.
    Cons: Sharp edges take distance off swings, still fairly pricey investment.

    Summary: I bought these clubs because I had rented them during my vacation recently. They seemed to work fine at the time, although I didn't play a good game, I assumed it was the work of Chivas Regal. I can't find fault with the quality and the ... read more

  • Cannot go wrong with this club

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: best early ping design by far, sweet spot, gets the ball up in the air
    Cons: hard to find used, and impossible new, very light head, appearance.

    Summary: I've had mine for about 9 years. I have the original stiff tru temper steel shaft 1-PW. Highs: First, this is an excellent club. The first non-controversial ping due to the "rounded" edges of the grooves. Big sweet spot. Fairly durable, but I have ... read more

    Pros: Extremely forgiving, virtually indestructable
    Cons: Not much feel

    Summary: I got my Ping eye 2's from my grandfather who has had them for many years. Despite their age, these clubs hold up very very well. While these irons MAY not be the best for tour pros they seem to work great for everyone else. Let me tell you why. ... read more

    Pros: Interestingly Different Copper Color
    Cons: Eye catching to thieves

    Summary: I bought a set of these babies for $100 from their original owner who played them once...and didn't like them. As my first set of "professional" clubs (read: not junk), I couldn't understand why. These are very nice clubs, with an open back construction. ... read more

    Pros: There are no pros
    Cons: These irons are too good to be true

    Summary: I don't see the point in these hot shot irons. I think every golf club is the same. Why pay $450 for golf irons? I recently saw some golf irons for under ten dollars. If I want to improve my game in golf, I might as well find the cheapest clubs possible. ... read more

    Pros: Relatively cheap, Forgiving. Accurate, Somewhat workable, Ping quality.
    Cons: Excessive offset. Hard to find. Not the newest or the prettiest clubs.

    Summary: What a set of clubs. I have this little problem of always having to try new clubs so when I came across the old babies, but I soon realized that along with New Coke, these might be the only good things to come out of that horrid decade of the eighties. ... read more

    Pros: extremely easy to hit, cavity back, most popular iron ever made.
    Cons: ----------

    Summary: Going to the golf course, i often see many sets of ping eye 2's. Now that the eye 3's are out, I wonder what is so great about these clubs, until i tried them out. Not only are they forgiving heads, but the ball clicks off the clubface. Long and far, i ... read more

    Jun 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Playability, Versatility, SQUARE GROOVES
    Cons: Starting to Look its Age

    Summary: I recently purchased a (used) factory refurbished set of the "square groove" Eye 2 (blue dots) on eBay. I purchased the Eye 2s for various reasons (nice (but dated) look, perimeter weighting, legendary reputation, custom fitting...), but most importantly ... read more

    Pros: excellent spin and easy to work the ball
    Cons: higher lofts and square grooves translate into a club or two shorter than todays standard

    Summary: I've tried many sets (x-12's, macgregor pcb tour, dci's, isi, t-zoids, black cats, powerbilt tps...) and I eventually keep coming back to these copper ping beauties. Even though I might hit 25 yards further using a newer technologically advanced club, ... read more
