But today I was at a driving range which I occasionally go to in Calera OK just north of the Red River. The man who owns and runs the pace is an official Ping Dealer. His wife was in the shop today instead of him, but while in there I got the SHOCK of my life. Right next to the counter was a rack with 3 Brand Spanking New PING EYE 2 Sand Wedges. A Black, White, and Green dot. I pulled one to look because I could not believe my eyes. They look legit with PING Sticker matching with the serial number and PING grips.
I quizzed his wife about it and she said he just got them in from PING. Now for the real Shocker; she said he can now get full sets of BRAND NEW PING EYE 2 irons. She said no Beryllium Copper, but standard steel.
Can this be true? Is PING re-releasing the line? The one I looked at has the classic square grooves. I know folks who would pay a $1000 for a set of 3-SW of original Ping Eye 2. Heck with that I know people who would pay several thousand for a brand new set of originals.
