Workability and versatility are provided by a lower MOI about the shaft axis, giving you full control of the face at impact for shaping shots. Variable tungsten toe weighting optimizes the CG for higher-launching long irons and controlled short irons. The S56 has contributed to many high-profile tour wins worldwide.

  • Stabilizing Bar Technology

    Narrower stabilizing bars improve ball velocity and distance in the long irons. The bars progress wider in the short irons to generate lower, more-controlled trajectories.

  • Variable Tungsten Toe Weighting

    A shallow tungsten weight in the long irons produces higher-trajectory long irons. The weight extends deeper toward the face in the short irons to generate penetrating ball flights.

PING offers a variety of shaft flexes in steel and graphite to meet every golfer's needs and preferences. Selecting the proper shaft flex for your swing will help you get the most distance and accuracy from every shot. Generally, players with faster swing speeds require stiffer shafts to keep the ball trajectory lower, while players with slower swing speeds will require more flexible shafts to produce a higher ball trajectory.

The choice of steel or graphite shafts is usually based on preferences for weight and/or feel. Players seeking a lighter overall weight and/or a softer feel in their irons may prefer graphite shafts, while players who prefer a standard weight club with a firmer feel may prefer steel shafts.

PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight.

PING color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
