these things are going to sell like CRAZY. i work at a pro shop and our orders for G15's and i15's are constantly being sent out to Ping HQ...these will be even more popular. will be interesting if Ping decides to come out with a pure blade or improve the design of the S57 with forging.

Is it possible that PING is doing this themselves? They do their own casted irons correct? How much does it or would it costs PING to set up a shop that's set up for casting and then switch or add forging to their House?

Ping no longer casts irons in the US. All the casting for irons and wedges is done in China as of late last year. I'm 80% sure the forging is also done in China. The Rumor is the irons will not be available in the US until the Fall. I expect a retail price of $150 per club. I am of course speculating. If S57's are 112.50 per club, forged irons HAVE to be more, right???

I've read somewhere that these are not "true forgings", but nevertheless they look very sweet ! Hope they come to Europe soon. I'd sure love to try them !

Does anyone know who's doing their forging? Could they possibly be done by Endo or Miura? Is it possible that PING is doing this themselves? They do their own casted irons correct? How much does it or would it costs PING to set up a shop that's set up for casting and then switch or add forging to their House?

Tim,

I fairly sure that Ping is now or soon will be

having all their casting done in China, a move made

to be able to compete. The forgings, since its 8620

may also be done in China, though I'm not sure on that.

What would that even mean? Maybe there are plastic pieces that aren't forged (obviously).

Perhaps people are reacting to the hollow tungsten sole (the picture of the cut away was in the original post).

Stopped by my club today, and the Ping rep just so happened to be there talking to our pros. I asked about the Anser Forged clubs, and he let out this little tid-bit: they will be available in the US in late fall on a limited basis. Also....they will be one of the most expensive sets of clubs ever sold.

Looking forward to hitting the Blades (thinner sole and less offset). Is Ping going to produce these in the USA?

So ping have made a forged iron. They look nice. Anyone know where they are forged?

I asked the same thing about who's doing the forging???? No answer as of yet must be TOP SECRET! :) :P
