Another used iron question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have been a casual golfer for many years.  By that I mean I would play a few times per year...actually I guess calling myself a golfer, at all, may be a stretch.

 

I was able to get my son interested in playing in the last year or so and now my wife and daughter are playing too.  We just joined a club and we hope to be playing regularly so it's time to update/upgrade my clubs.

 

I was measured for clubs last week - I need 3* upright, + 1.5 ", and steel shafts.

 

I don't really want to spend the $$$ for new brand name clubs yet.  I came across gigagolf.com and I can have a set built to my specs for around $150.  I may also be able to buy an old set of Pings (Eye 2, Zings, etc.) - white dot, for about the same price.

 

So, opinions please - gigagolf vs. Ping Eye 2s vs. something else?

 

Thanks in advance!

You could always look on sites like, Ebay or Global Golf. Back to your question I would test a club before I buy it.

Testing a club is always the preferable option. However you should be able to find a set of PING Eye-2's or ZINGS's in the correct dot color for around $150 or so on Ebay or Craigslist. If I had to use a set sight unseen, the Eye-2's are one almost everyone can use. I have a ZING 5 iron and like it and could also suggest those, but if you don't like them, they don't have the universal appeal that the Eye-2's have in my opinion. The Eye-2's especially should be easy to unload if you don't like them. Invest in a set of new grips and keep them changed when they wear out and actually you may be satisfied for a long time.

Being you have unique fitting requirements, try the Ping Eye2 irons. Test them out, and make sure you can hit them.

 

Met a guy at a charity scramble in May. He played the Eye2s, and was just smoking them on the practice range. Unfortunately, he was on someone else's team.

 

People uncertain about their golf game can buy a lot of trouble getting this club and that online. If you buy clubs online and they don't quite fit, it can be another $100 to get them tweaked to what you need.

 

Also, don't forget to get the right thickness of grip.
