Agreed completely.

Nothing since has ever come close. There are tons of people out there that will never play anything else. If the start to look a little rough, they just send em back to the WRX department and have them tumbled and new paintfill. Personally, I think all Ping irons look like 60's muscle cars covered in Bondo, but man do they have a following, and that one more than any other.

I have to agree with the Ping Eye 2. I can't think of another Ping product that has made such an impact other than the Anser putter.

So if they are considered the best iron EVER MADE, why do people even bother to waste 1k on clubs made this and the last few years?

I mean on ebay you can get the eye's for a good price, like 400 bucks or so.

The original Eye 2s were made from 82 to 90, and they are still selling close to their original price 17 to 25 years later. Is there any other club that can compare? This model ushered in a new era in golf and really gave birth to the game improvement iron.

I still have a set of Eye2s from 1985. 1-PW. They are good irons and the 1 and 2 iron are very easy to hit. Personally, I like my Z101s better.

I really enjoy the I5's i'm playing right now, have allowed me to really improve my ball striking this year but I also remember playing a set of eye2's my uncle had a number of years ago when I was still a junior golfer and remember them feeling incredible.

As others have said they started a revolution in irons and have to be at least the most memorable iron Ping has ever made.

The copper one's?? Or the regular ones?? Honestly, all I did was take a porter cable to my regular irons, used a very mild compound, SSR 2.5, then followed up with SSR 1.5 (compounds) I finished it off with a coat of sealer, Menzerna FMJ Paint Sealant I did not use any wax, but after I did this, my used clubs looked BRAND NEW!!!! BRAND NEW!!!!

Ping Eye 2's . Very first set of real clubs I ever owned and I wish I had never gotten rid of them. Don't get me wrong...I love my MP 60's but I just wish I would have kept my Ping Eye 2's ( Blue dot)...

I sure am glad I got my hand-me-down set of Eye2's now that I'm hearing all this. I've only hit them once at the range since I got them Monday. Can't wait to see what they do on the course!

The original poster asked what was the best

Ping Iron ever made, not the best iron period. I can think of several iron sets that are better than the Ping Eye 2, just not too many Ping sets that are better...

I have a set of G5's and wished I'd gotten the i5's but I've hit i3's and they were about as sweet as I've hit. Much better then the new ones. Brother had Eye2's years ago and after he got rid of them he's never played as well. They probably were the best of all time.

Eye 2's.

I'm getting fitted tomorrow for some G10's. However, I will never get rid of the Eye2's.

Ping Eye 2's

That's my story too, even the blue dot (but I have the Ping I3 O-size now instead of Mizunos).
