Look at that offset!
This is a process that started back in January at the PGA Show when I had a conversation with the people at PING about the testings for this year. Both of us wanted to do something new and different, and after coming up with an idea and ironing the details, a testing unlike any we've done before was born.
We talk often on this site saying "Go Get Fit" and PING has a phrase you hear constantly among it's staff #FittingMatters And one of the areas that we felt fitting was overlooked was in the long game, fairway woods and hybrids.
So I went out to PING HQ in Phoenix, and was fit by one of their master fitters. PING then graciously arranged for the four testers who were selected, to be fit by either the area field rep for PING or in the case of two of them, two top 100 PING Fitters.
So this review thread will be a bit different as it will have a third stage--the fitting process--which will be talked about at the same time as Stage 1 is posted. As a staff tester, I will post one stage, that is hopefully not TLDR...but make no promise 🙂
Each person was fit to what fit their personal gaps between driver and the last iron. So each of us came up with a different combo to test. I think you will find the results very interesting and in some cases eye opening.
One final note. Due to the horrific weather and deadly floods/tornado's that hit MO last month, TSauer's fitting was delayed quite a bit from the others. Fortunately he and everyone involved are safe and sound, but it just took a while for them to all work through the timing. So his stage's may be a bit behind the others, but he has an awesome setup to review, and I'm looking forward to reading all these, knowing how my setup has helped my game already.

@Golfspy_CG2 Combined Review
Today, I was greeted with a lovely Taylormade iron box. I walked into the door and saw the box and immediately asked my wife what it was. She replied with, "I don't know. You tell me?" I started going through my mind about all of the searches I've done recently. I got scared I pocket purchased a club on accident. I replied with, "I swear babe. I haven't bought anything. Especially with out telling you first." I opened the box and saw the below beauty sitting there. I picked up the card and was surprised to see I had been selected based on my response to a post. If I'm being perfectly honest, I can't even remember submitting anything to win the club. But none the less, I'm thankful for the opportunity.
Based on my initial thoughts of looking down at the club at address, it's nice. I don't have a feeling of oh shoot I have to be good to game these. The wide top line provides the confidence. The top line doesn't seem overly wide though. I'm a single digit handicapper right now and I could easily see myself gaming an entire bag of these. RANT INCOMING: (I really don't understand why most golfers want to have Blades. I get the allure of the sleek nature of the irons, but from a performance standpoint, if you can't put little round wear marks in your irons, I really don't believe blades is best. I know there can be outliers, but double digit handis definitely shouldn't be gaming blades. The point of irons isn't to look the best while you're at address. Save looking good for apparel. I'd rather have an iron that performs amazing but doesn't look the greatest. I understand the point of look good feel good though).
In the coming weeks, I plan on providing my unbiased review of this iron. I'm currently gaming the Taylormade PSI irons. We'll see how big of a difference a couple years makes for technology. I love the feel of the PSI's when I flush them. It seriously feels like butter when cutting through the ball and the grass. Coming from the S55's, it's amazing the difference in feel and forgiveness.
