they can take a beating and still look nice. that is something that ping irons have always stayed consistent with. i'm not one to treat my clubs like a museum piece and it definitely showed with my previous blades.
these irons are comparable in size and appearance at address to forgings though they are much more forgiving. Ping makes great clubs and i look forward to getting back under a 10 handicap with these.
They look great, feel great, and have brought back confidence i lost with blades.
if you haven't hit ping irons or woods (i hit a G5 driver) you are missing out. If you have had pings in the past, these are some of the best in a while (since the eye2s). if you are struggling with blades or even cavity back blades, these will be a breath of fresh air for you.
