The i15s are an in between the G / K series and the S series blades.

I hit these irons at the PING fitting center while considering a replacement for my 4-6 S59 irons. At address it's not much thicker than the S59 and the headsize is just a bit longer. It's definately easier to hit than the S59 but less workable.

If you are looking for long iron replacement in your blades but don't feel comfortable with hybrids then the i15 is a good alternative

I just got a set, surprising forgiveness from a supposed "players" set. Ball goes straight as an arrow for me when other GI clubs had a fade. Only thing I noticed is a decent drop in distance if you mis-hit them. But then again, I would prefer to be 20 yards short than 20 yards right...(cool)

Got mine custom order through our Ping rep at Edwin Watts in Tyler, TX. DG-S300's, half an inch long, green dot. I like them but tend to get a little quick with them becuse the heads feel a bit light. might need to add some lead tape to the heads. But still, very good irons, still get good spin with the legal grooves on them, and feel great throughout the set.

I've been playing mine for about a year now with stiff graphite shafts (I know, I know but I've been playing graphite since I was like 14). They took quite a bit of getting used to since I've always played cheapo game improvement clubs, but I love them now. The progressive design makes the long irons ridiculously easy to hit and I can pretty much do what I want with them. Trajectory is stupid easy to control, I can work them both ways, they're extremely consistent, and the ball absolutely LAUNCHES off the face in a way I've never seen in my life.

Went with the i15's from the g10's as I was looking for a decent "in betweener" model. The g10's were good, no complaints. Initially bought them because I needed a lot of forgiveness and liked the weight of the club. The size and thickness instilled the confidence I needed as I was starting out as a new golfer. As I improved, the thickness became more of a distraction. Really liked pings and was one of the few left handed brands I had the opportunity to demo. Really like the size, feel, and overall performance of the i15's. Going to stick with them for another season or two. Out of curiosity, any other recommendations for irons that are similar as far as "in betweeners" go?

I have owned a set of I15s since December 2009. Mine are standard length red dog (0.75 degree flat) with standard size grips. I was off an 18 handicap when I started using them and have now dropped to 15. The clubs, augmented by some lessons certainly helped. Looks wise they are quite appealing but certainly not classically beautiful like a well crafted forged blade. However, as I can't hit blades to save my life the point is somewhat moot.

Performance wise they are easy to hit for a "players" club and good swings are rewarded with tight dispersion and decent length. They are not as long as some of the stronger higher launching game improving irons but I don't feel I have lost any distance by using them. Whilst they are not mega workable you can fade, draw and alter the ball height by the usual changes in you set up. As a natural drawer of the ball I have to open the blade quite a bit to get a fade which is useful as I have found that some more responsive clubs you have to be careful with your set up to avoid a slice. Poor swings are, as expected, punised with a fairly marked loss of distance. I have lost a fair number of balls on one of our par threes which is guarded by water due to a quick jerky swing that results in a weak push to the right.

Feel wise there is nothing disagreeable about the feel of the ball off the face. To be quite honest I am not sure that I can tell the difference between forged and cast.

They have kept their looks over the last 3 and a bit years with bag clatter causing minimal marking. The shafts have not been prone to pitting.

Overall a high quailty set of clubs that will serve most players well.
