Ping S55 3-PW Iron Set with Steel Shafts - Yellow Dot
The Tour-style blade Ping S55 Iron Set, with stronger lofts, provides added distance with control while increasing workability for shaping shots. The 17-4 stainless steel heads feature a tungsten toe weight to enhance forgiveness and a vertical stabilizing bar for precise distance control. Lofts are strengthened to add distance (1° in the Pitching Wedge, 1/2° in the 6-Iron, then progressively less through the 3-Iron, where there's no change).
A Tungsten Toe Weight enhances forgiveness:
The vertical stabilizing bar is narrower in the long irons and wider in the short irons to soften the feel and optimize the CG position in each club. The CG is a little lower throughout the set, with the wedge being slightly more forward and the 3-iron's CG slightly farther back relative to the S56. As a result, wedge shots will be lower and more penetrating while long-iron shots will launch higher.
A Stabilizing Bar fine tunes launch angles throughout the set:
The low-profile custom tuning port (CTP) has changed from a thermoplastic urethane to a thermoplastic elastomer that absorbs vibrations, resulting in a softer feel at impact. The CTP is larger and sits deeper in the sole to optimize the center of gravity (CG) for improving launch conditions. A thinner face helps increase ball speed for added distance.
The Custom Tuning Port absorbs vibrations and optimizes the center of gravity:
Thin top lines, a compact head (slightly smaller than the S56), simplified cavity, and a brushed satin-chrome finish create a clean, confidence-inspiring design. Ping's CFS steel shaft (Control, Feel, Stability) comes standard, offering a mid-high launch.
