Playability

The leading edge makes short work of trouble and hilly lies; easy to manufacture shots without having to sacrifice distance or accuracy; natural trajectory progression through the set.

Distance Control

Predictable lengths make scoring easy; the entire face seems to produce the same distance, which is longer than the typical blade; a few testers get a lot more yardage than with their current set of better-player irons.

Cons

Shot-shapers say these irons aren't quite as maneuverable as traditional blades; standard trajectory tends to be a little lower than some testers prefer; a few panelists opt for the impact feel of a forged model over the iBlade.

Bottom Line

The iBlade is rock-solid across the board, with a clean look, plenty of forgiveness and traditional Ping reliability.
