Interesting. I knew they were coming out with an update of the 58's, but that's the first picture I've ever seen of them. Wish I understood Japanese so I could see what they are saying about them.

 

From what I've heard, they were going to release these in the fall along with an updated Rapture.

I can't read Japanese, and I'm not sure about how well babelfish works either since this is the translation it gave me:

 

"From shop of today and acquaintance in March S 57 tour iron

The information that entered it is sold.

 

As for the president of the shop here being the PING maniac, the variety there is many a thing which you are taught, it is.

Your own iron and the wedge redwood putter entirely in this president

The fitting having doing, it is something which it purchases.

 

Well, the S57 tour iron is after in late March preceding selling in Japan when with the home country it becomes sale.

With as for saying, hearing the opinion of the Japanese user rather, being to think that it is the club which becomes sale

However there are no many dissatisfaction in the current iron, the wax which the っ ちゃ bears desired -.

 

Also the eye which you saw is good, don't you think? is, (^ ^)"

 

Yeah, your guess is probably better than mine.

Great find. As already said, these would blend nicely with the Tour-W wedges.

I've personally seen and held a set of S57s. They have the same finish as the Tour-W wedges, makes me wonder if a black nickel finish will be made available.

A guy in my office speaks Japanese. Let me see what I can do.

 

EDIT:

 

Okay, I didn't want to impose too much on my friend, so I just took notes when he told me what the web page said. So this is a "loose" translation:

 

Today I heard that my friend's shop will be selling the PING S57 irons in March. My friend with the shop is PING crazy and he gives me a lot of information. All of my PING irons and Redwood putters were fitted by this shop owner.

 

My friend said that the S57s will be sold in Japan in March, before they are sold in the U.S. domestic market and that PING will likely use the opinion of the Japanese market before releasing the irons in the U.S.

 

I have no qualms with my current irons, but these make me want them [C_F note: this guy would fit right in at Golfwrx . . .] and I like the way they look too. :) :rolleyes: :cheesy: :D

I'm not sure if it's related directly to the Maya Calendar or not (I believe that ends in 2012). But I'm pretty sure when they get to 0 the world ends. :)

I think they look great...if they lose the orange medallion they would look incredible...first set of PING irons since 2001 that would tempt to remove my i3's from the bag...the immense price tag notwithstanding.

Here's another photo and another couple of Japanese web pages:

Sorry, I won't go back to my friend for another Japanese translation. He looked at me like I was an idiot when I answered his question "why do you need this?" with "because a bunch of people on a golf internet message board want to know real bad." Too bad because it looks like the second link contains a Ping-Japan press release.

 

EDIT: It looks like Google Translator does a (slightly) better job with Japanese than Babelfish did:

 

(From the second link):

these are nothing like the S58s, not redesigned or with slight improvements but more of based off of the Tour-W wedges

 

I don't think I should say anything more.
