Hovland talks about the i59's for a second in this YouTube video (9:00 mark) and says they aren't as forgiving in the 4/5 irons and iBlades blended better with i59's than i210's and that's how he ended up with his current split set.  Take that for what it's worth.

thats very interesting, thanks. victor’s comments suggest these are somewhere in between iblade and blueprint in size/look. 

 

that he needed sthg more forgiving in long irons than i59, but going to i210s in long irons was to big of a transition from i59 short irons, so he went with iblades kinda focuses in what these are….less forgiving than iblade and a lot different than i210.

 

i was kinda hoping for sthg more forgiving than iblade but these sound like they might going back in a s55 direction.

Somewhere in this thread is a post about iBlade/S iron replacement being i59

Interesting as that's another pro passing the long irons. I'm starting to think that we're all going to be finding the 7-iron split soon. Long irons one way, shorts another. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Good morning!  I stopped by GG yesterday and their release schedule shows these to be coming out in August.  Followed by the new 790, some new Cleveland product, and then a Cobra Air product in September.  Have a great day!


August is 2.5 weeks away and not a word on Ping’s site about these.  It’s doubtful they’re going by that schedule...but my wallet is ready just in case 😅

It's not unusual for a manufacturer to synchronize their website and a store launch along with review embargos for a set date and PING seem to be quite happy with folks mentioning these on social-media.

Been gaming the blueprints 4-W for a while now. Really want to see these in person. If they're a little more forgiving that the blueprints, probably going to switch to 3i iBlade and 5-W in these i59s.

Pernilla's instagram pic and caption makes me think they might be too close to Blueprints for my tastes.  Was hoping for something more foregiving.

Maybe...but probably will wait.  I played i210s and it came down to them and srixons after testing a bunch.  Srixons won out.  But I have had 2 sets of i210 so that tells you how close they were.  Plus, i210 on Steelfiber with white iomic 2.3 may have been the best looking set I have ever had.

Sounds like you can afford to experiment, I played sf's for 8 years. Give the MCI 120's a spin, just an amazing all around iron shaft.

Hmm, will check out that shaft.  Didn't even see your bag.  Im on ping woods and srixon irons as well.  It's a great combo for me.  I stuck with the older stuff -- 410 plus, 400 stretch 3, do have the 425 5 wood on Orange pro and love it.  Ping hybs with AD DI 85 are rocking for me as well.

Some "Google Translation" goodies...

 

A new structure blade iron "i59" that overturns conventional wisdom that combines feel, operability, and beauty.

The "aluminum core insert" mounted inside the soft iron forged head
creates a comfortable hitting feeling and hitting sound at impact, and the
new groove "Micromax Groove" that maximizes the frictional force demonstrates the ultimate spin performance. ..

The design that is distributed around the weight makes it resistant to miss hits and enables the flight distance control required by advanced players.

"Aluminum core insert" creates a solid feel

A new structure that has evolved to the optimum center of gravity position with a lightweight aluminum core insert mounted on the rear part of the 17-4 stainless steel face. The new structure head that produces a solid feel and hitting sound has excellent operability and realizes the ideal trajectory in various situations.
 
New groove "Micromax Groove" with excellent flight distance control and reproducibility
By optimizing the angle and spacing of each groove and increasing the number of grooves compared to the past, the frictional force and spin amount required in all situations are realized. Improved flight distance control performance and reproducibility even in the wet or rough.
 
Soft iron forged body with ultimate weight distribution
  • Soft iron forged 1025 carbon steel is used for the first time in the sharp and compact body. The excess weight due to the aluminum core insert is placed at the optimum location. Furthermore, it is equipped with a high specific density weight, and has evolved into the ultimate weight peripheral distribution design that is resistant to miss hits.

Keen to try as an iBlade user and will hold judgement till then. I just don't see the point of the forged head though. If the rumours are true on the costs they may as well of cast it and made it that bit more affordable. Feel is hardly going to be improved dramatically because the body is forged.
