Ping have today introduced the Blueprint S and Blueprint T, two new forged iron models engineered and custom built for golfers seeking to improve their games through tour-proven technology.
Both irons carry the blueprint name but have different playing characteristics.
Let’s focus on the Blueprint T, a pure Tour blade. For a start, Tour and elite players aren’t looking for forgiveness the biggest factor they seek in their irons is an enhanced sense of feel. They want to know exactly where each shot was struck on the hitting area, along with the highest level of predictability, because when golfers like Seamus Power make a particular swing, they demand a specific result.
The Blueprint T replaces the original Blueprint, which was released in 2019. It is the most compact Ping iron, with an extremely short blade length, a narrow topline and only a touch of offset. The Blueprint T is also the only Ping iron with a single, non-variable blade length in the 3-iron through 8-iron.
For the highly skilled golfer who relies on workability and prefers the size and look of a muscle back, the Blueprint T is engineered as a single-piece, 8620 carbon steel forging that puts a premium on trajectory control and superb feel. Its muscle-back design concentrates mass through the impact zone to ensure a pleasing sound and feel with the workability to take on any shot.
A shorter heel-face height allows the hosel transition to blend smoothly into the top rail, creating a clean, distraction-free appearance at address. The narrow soles enable consistent turf interaction from all conditions. Precision-milled grooves ensure the preferred launch and spin for players who rely on pinpoint control. A high-density toe screw and tip weight provide precise swingweight control and a slight boost in MOI.
“Traditionally, an iron like the Blueprint T relies as much on the skill level of the player as it does on the technology,” said John K. Solheim, PING CEO & President. “We understand that, but we’re always looking for ways to improve every iron we design. In the Blueprint T, every detail is extremely precise and calculated to ensure the performance demanded from a forged blade. It’s a true shot-maker’s iron crafted with precision, for precision.”
The Blueprint T standard lofts match the Blueprint S and i230 irons to allow golfers to create blended sets within PING’s precision iron offerings. The standard length of the Blueprint T 3-9 irons is ¼” shorter than Blueprint S to promote a lower ball flight.
