Ping i59 Vs. Titleist T100 Irons Comparison Overview

There are a surprising amount of option when you are shopping for player’s performance irons. Even in this specific categories, you get manufacturers that emphasize different performance aspects than others. So you really have to be aware of what you want and what your game needs.

To that end, we put together a brief comparison overview of two very popular player’s performance iron sets: the Ping i59 irons and the Titlelist T100 irons. Take a look at the key differences and performance aspects.

Ping i59 Irons Overview

The Ping i59 irons gives you the distance of a metal-wood with the looks and accuracy of a player’s performance iron.

We were really impressed with these irons and by the time we were done testing them, came to the conclusion that they are some of the most unique irons currently on the market.

That’s because they combine premium features with enhanced forgiveness.

For example, the Ping i59 irons feature a fully forged 1025 carbon steel body with a 17-4 stainless steel face.

This makes them flex like a metal-wood style iron which yields impressive distance. It also gives them the feel of a premium iron set.

Then there is the aluminum face insert that allows weight to be displaced from the center of the face to the perimeter which, you guessed it, enhances forgiveness to a significant degree.

Titleist T100 Irons Overview

The first thing you have to know about these irons is that they are incredibly workable. Your advanced short game will surely benefit from the T100’s.

Just like the Ping i59’s, you get a compact blade, minimal offset and a thin topline with the T100’s.

There are also perimeter tungsten weights that have been fused into the forged heads of these irons. The result is a very solid feel across the face.

The T100’s really shined in the rough and around the green.

The pronounced leading edge of these irons makes it very easy to sweep the ball up out of tall rough and the contoured sole really smooths out turf interaction.

The low launch allows for acute trajectory control around the green as well.

This is a great set of scoring irons for advanced players.

Overall the Ping i59 irons will be more forgiving that the T100’s. In every other sense though, these iron sets are very much on par with one another.

Ping i59 Irons First Impressions

The Ping i59 irons felt good off the deck thanks to a strong aluminum insert that enhances feel while pushing the ball for better speeds.

What we were most surprised at though was the forgiveness of these player’s performance irons. Even though the i59’s are smaller, they are comparably forgiving on off-center shots.

A lot of weight is saved at the center of the heads of these clubs thanks to the super thin aluminum. That weight is displaced around the perimeter so you get more distance on strikes away from the sweet spot.

While you still need to be able to make consistent contact with the ball, you get a lot of help at that point even if you aren’t square up to it.

The Ping i59 irons are a good mixture of forgiveness, distance and short-game control. They don’t feel too bad either.

Titleist T100 – First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the T100 is how solid and sturdy they look as forged irons.

These irons build on the success of the AP2 irons and set out to deliver precision, consistency and control for single digit players who are looking to a set of irons to lower there score further.

The irons are a cavity back design that perform like blades and can be considered game improvement irons for players approaching or at professional level.

The clubs have added more camber for excellent turf interaction and there a tungsten weights added to the heel and toe of the clubs for an optimized COG and a high MOI.

These clubs deliver the performance that the best players in the world need.

Who are the Ping i59 Irons for?

The Ping i59 irons would be a good fit for anyone looking for a solid combination of forgiveness and greenside control.

This is a very unique set – and for this reason, we feel like the market for them might be rather small. You have to be able to strike the ball consistently with a smaller head but the MOI is ridiculous in these irons.

So they will be great for a smaller niche of players who are probably hovering around the 7, 8 9 handicap range.

The i Family 

Of course, the counterpart to the Ping i59 irons are the Ping i210 irons. The bottom line is that the i59 irons have the superior feel and more compact heads.
