Blueprint S

Why we like it

Manufacturing a soft, forgiving players iron with an undercut shape is a difficult engineering challenge. Ping took five years to develop the Blueprint S, which replaces the i59 model. The forged irons are essentially two sets in one: the 3 through 5-iron have a pocket-cavity in which an elastomer insert saves 10 grams of weight that is redistributed to assist launch and forgiveness in the clubs where it is needed most. The shorter irons are single-piece forgings that encourage more ball-flight control.

  • Toe weight screws assist the centre-of-gravity placement.
  • The face and grooves are milled to precise tolerances.
  • Retro Spec (weaker lofts) and PWR Spec (stronger) available.
  • 7-iron: 33 degrees; PW: 45 degrees

Reviewer profile

“‘Looks and feels like a true players iron. Produces a pleasant, muted sound, but the ball springs off the face.”
