Ping S55

Our Review:

Even in its second year, this club is as relevant as ever. Improvements from the S56 include a change in the lofts of some irons to achieve the proper distance gapping. The 6-iron was strengthened half a degree, the 7- and 8-irons are 1.25 degrees stronger, the 9-iron is 1.5 degrees stronger, and the pitching wedge is a degree strong. Also, a tuning port in the cavity helps lower the center of gravity, allowing the 4-iron to be weakened a quarter of a degree.
Specs: 6-iron: 30 degrees; PW: 46
Price: $1,000

    It has a minimalistic look but provides lots of forgiveness.

    I can control the flight of the ball really easily. An absolute pleasure to swing.
  • mid
    The first thing I noticed was the smooth impact. No clank and plenty of giddy-up.
  • mid
    Good distance. I got a few extra yards with this thing.
