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!!!!


what's a porter cable? What is ssr?

Be sure to go in for a fitting anyway then have them adjusted if necessary. Before you get fitted you can go to the pinggolf.com website and do the static fitting. This will let you know whether you're in the right ballpark.

You won't get the full benefit if the clubs are not sized to you.

The eye 2's were Karsten's masterpiece.

Re: Ping enthusiasts! Best Iron Ping ever made?

I have the eye 2 and for me they are the best club ping have ever made. I love them and I will keep them after I buy my new set of blade.

Re: Ping enthusiasts! Best Iron Ping ever made?

My eye2+ are my first set and I love them. They're so balanced.

I'm going to treat myself to a new set, probably from the i or g series, but I'll be keeping these and having them adjusted as my back up set.

Has anyone tried/owned the S58's. There is a demo day at my home club soon and I was wondering if anyone thought I should try them out, as I bought a G5 today and it was AMAZING!

Re: Ping enthusiasts! Best Iron Ping ever made?

According to ping's website, the black dot is what I need (and have), but they have the senior shafts and the website says I need the stiff ones...reshafting is not in the budget, lol. Every other set of irons I've had I cant hit the 3 or 4, but this one for some reason, I can hit them pretty well.

Re: Ping enthusiasts! Best Iron Ping ever made?

Browsing the threads and thought I'd give the Eye2s another mention. They were my first set of (non-junior) irons, and they still just feel right to me.

Re: Ping enthusiasts! Best Iron Ping ever made?

The first set of irons I ever owned were the Ping Zing 2's.....Bought for me by my folks as a high school graduation present.

I hacked up courses all over the southeast with those things, and they still look brand new.

I guess I missed the Eye 2s......They're obviously the overwhelming choice of Pings here. What made them so special?

Re: Ping enthusiasts! Best Iron Ping ever made?

I have owned most Ping irons from Eye 2's up to G10's and IMO the G10' are Ping's best irons. The Eye 2 + wedges may be better as I am still working with the G10's, but I believe the G10's wedges will require some grinding to compete with the Eye 2 + wedges.

I have v-groove Eye 2s (1983, original zz-lite stiff shafts) that were bought used but in very good shape. Do your own research on stainless steel, and then choose which products you want to use and which to avoid. Every once in a while (rarely!) to clean them, I use new steel wool and that waxy club cleaner as a first step, but you have to be careful and not leave any remnants of the steel wool on the clubs. After every round I just use plain water, however if they need better cleaning I use orange clean or simple green but immediately follow with dw soap and water and rinse thoroughly. Then I hit them with wd40 and wipe that off thoroughly. It may be illegal to leave wd40 on, but I think pretty sure its OK to use if I wipe it off. I did this all when I first got them, but like I said they were in good shape to begin with.

They look good after cleaning, ss has self-healing qualities which helps a lot. I don't use any topcoats of any kind, ss doesn't like that. Even with some minor dingeyness in the cavities, they don't look 24 years old.

Re: Ping enthusiasts! Best Iron Ping ever made?

Eye2+ for me, I bought them 2nd hand after self-fitting with the web static fit and I don't plan on changing for a long time
post #33 of 41

i agree the eye2 is a great forgiving set of irons but i only have the sand wedge to supplement my ISI set i found on Ebay in pristine condition for about 400 bucks. I have played newer pings, clevelands, calaways and nikes (even taylor made though i hate to admit it) and i will go to battle with my ISI set any day of the week. i'm only 34 but the truth is all new irons are about the same and they simply don't make them like they used to. good luck.

post #34 of 41

I have owned several sets of Pings.
Zing
Zing 2
ISI
I3 Blades
I5 w/UST V295 from Ping WRX.
Ping Rapture J Spec with Aldila Proto 85

 

The Rapture J Specs are the BEST CLUBS EVER!!!

post #35 of 41

I have had:     Eye 2's; Zings; Eye 3's and G20's.  I think the G20 are way better than any of the others.

post #36 of 41

Depends on what player we're talking about.  For me it's the i3 or the i20.  S59 irons were very solid as well.
