Hit them today at Roger Dunns. Here are my observations:

  • Most full-forged feeling Ping iron i have hit

 

Did you hit the blueprint?

410LST 8º, 3w 14.5º, 3h 20º, i210 4i, Blueprint 5-P, Glide Forged 50/54/58. Ping Tour x & MMT105tx shafts. Sigma2 Fetch w/ BGT. 

First par round 4 Oct 2020.

I'm trying to think of a iron with a thin steel face welded on a forged body that didn't advertise more ball speed. You could be right. Since it looks like a retro spec is available, maybe they are not higher launching. However, the blueprints offer only 1 deg weaker on their retro loft, so not sure...

When I hit it it went 170 yards which is my standard 7 iron distance (MMC user).  I was using the lower spinning PX LZ shaft.  I doubt this is a high ball speed iron.  Just solid and consistent.  Didn't notice a lot of offset either.  As @animalgolfs said, they do frame the ball beautifully.

Not sure if already stated but they have an aluminum core and have the same moi as the i210.

To the folks that have hit them already: how do they compare to the Apex Pro 21 or the P770?

 

I gamed the P770 (current gen) four a couple month. Those things are HOT. I moved away form them as I just didn't care for the amount of off set. The i59 feel way more like a full forged club, even on mis hits. The i59 are also smaller in all dimensions I think, and carry weaker lofts.

Got to hit them off grass yesterday at my club. They feel good, turf interaction was nice. I would say my T100 feel better through the ground but that probably isn't fair since I'm used to the T100 and I don't care for the AWT Shafts.

Not gonna be as forgiving as i210 

 

Based on my small testing, I'm not super sure on that. The i210 surely "feel" more forgiving - softer on mishits etc. but I didnt see a huge difference in carry drop off and spin drop which is the thing I personally care most about.

They do have the same moi as the i210s not sure how that translates into forgiveness but they should be close.

At someone stated😃 they do feel very solid - imo they are not buttery feel solid though 

 

That insert is gonna be where everyone has individual views, in regards to feel. I hit probably 35 shots with the fixed hosel 7i- it's a combination i500/blueprint feel - yet the miss hit i500 feel is nowhere to be found.....the iBlade miss hit feel is present imo

 

i59 feel extremely solid- my 2 shot solidified my opinion on bagging these...... immediately

i500 is probably the worst feeling iron Ping has ever produced. If the i59 feels anything like the i500 it’s a no go for me. 

If you play on the high / toe side - i500 were absolutely terrible 

 

These i59 have none of that i500 terrible feel - anywhere. They are solid feeling as any other similar iron offerings.

So, is the consensus is that these are taking the iBlade spot, but play a bit more forgiving?

 

I had given up my hopes of a club that was a middle ground between the i210 and the iBlade ... 🙏

This is my question. I'm not a fan at all of the hollow clubs. Does anyone know if this is the actual iblade replacement? Or will there be an iblade 2.0?
