Ping Zing I have went retro

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
With long thought on this I went back in time and purchased a all most new set of ping zings. Last year I friend of mine had a old PZ pitching wedge in his bag. I pick it up hit it it felt unlike any thing I every hit I love it. Is it insane to go back in time to try improving my game by the look and feel of this old set of club.

The Ping Zings are great clubs ... probably the most forgiving of all the Ping irons, although they got a bum rap because of their looks and the problem some had with the shafts breaking a few inches above the hosel (the original KT steel shafts couldn't handle the toe-down effect during the swing, hence the modified KT-M that are seen in many of the sets today).  If you compare the Zings to today's offerings, you'll find them to be solid feeling and very forgiving, but not as long as today's irons (companies have strengthened the lofts on many of today's irons over the years, which accounts for the difference in length).  I've got copper Zings with the Aldila 101 graphite shafts as my back-up set, and enjoy these irons very very much.

 

Good luck with your Zings,

I believe that confidence is as big a part of this game as any piece of technology.  What I mean by that is that the set of iron heads you have the most confidence in is likely going to give you the best shots.

 If you're saying that they play better than they look, that isn't really saying much!

You know the old expression, "looks like someone beat up on her with an ugly stick."? Well, those are the ugly sticks.b2_tongue.gif

Used PingZings up until a couple years ago and the only reason I switched is because they were custom fit to my grandfather who is much shorter than I am. Great clubs.
