Im thinking about picking up a set of Eye 2's in pretty good condition. Im a high handicapp golfer, but I thought it might be kind of fun to pick up a classic set of irons to swing around for fun.

Are these forgiving at all or am I just wasting a couple hundred bucks?

Thanks!

IMHO Eye 2's are not only the best game improvement irons of all time, they're the best irons ever made by any manufacturer. Are they forgiving? In spades, brother! You would not be wasting a couple of hundred bucks on some Eye 2's because they can be purchased relatively inexpensively on Ebay and can almost always be resold for what you paid for them.

There is no such thing as "wasting money on a set of PING Eye-2's". Buy them up and enjoy!

I loved my Ping Eye-2's when I was playing them. A very forgiving iron set. It's kinda weird, I was playing this weekend with a guy who had a set of G5's I believe. At first glance, I thought they were some old Ping Eye-2's. It's pretty amazing that style and club head shape is still being deployed today after 20+ years. That in itself should give you some idea how well designed those clubs are.
I've still got my old set too, but would probably be selling them for a little more than a couple hundred bucks. They're a full beryllium copper white dot set (1 - L-wedge) with all matching serial numbers. Let me know if you might have some interest.

Good luck with your decision!

they're nice clubs but the long irons are hard to hit compared to more modern ones. (I find them hard to hit anyway)

I'd love to have a full set of them.
are you getting the woods with them?

You are a silly dude. In one thread you say old blades aren't hard to hit. In the next you say the long eye 2's are hard to hit.

Not a waste of money!!! I play with G10 irons but still own 2 iron sets of eye 2's, one of them berylliym copper. I break them out every once in a while and it's fun to play with them.

A blade 3i is easier to hit than the Ping Eye 2 3i that's at the range.

Maybe it's mental, but I don't think it is.

No woods, just saw them for sale at Global Golf. Has anyone used them and are they reputable???

I just gotta check to see what color dot I would use. I believe the clubs I saw were black dot, which I believe is standard? Thanks for the replies!

Yes I have and yes they are. But get a fitting first. If you end up with one of the "off-standard" color codes like red, orange, white, gold, or maroon there are some real bargains to be had on Ebay. I just saw a set of orange dot Eye Two's sell for $81.00.

I have had 2 sets of Eye 2s (and still have one set - my plus no pluses - in the closet) and they are great clubs. They were my first real set and worked really well for me, and compared to a new set, are relatively cheap. The only downside (if you view it that way, but I personally didn't) is that they are about 1 club weaker than what you have probably used. They were produced before the "loft strengthening revolution." If that bothers you, go another route, but you won't be sorry you have them if you buy them!

That's a good idea. I take it just going off the chart on the PING website probably isn't good enough huh?

Ping Eye-2 ranks as a SGI club with an MPF above 700.

Played Eye-2 clones for 14 years, and they were great clubs. Main reason I switched was they had Stiff shafts, and I made a move to Regular.

Does anyone know if Ping will still make a set of Eye-2s on custom order?

I just bought a set of BeCu's and I am a very high capper and after buying these and working on my swing on my own I went out this weekend and shot a 82 that's right a 82 with these. These are buy far the best and nicest looking set of clubs I have ever played with. Buy them and don't look back. I would agree that if you can find a store that would let you hit off a white board and get an idea of what length you need ( I did this and found exactly what I needed 1/2" long black dot midsize grips ). You wont can't loose on them.

I spoke to the rep last week and the answer was yes, they will.

As for the earlier comment that a set of orange dots was $81 on ebay, I'd say there must have been a reason for it. Like mis-matched serial numbers, or mis-matched shafts or something. A decent matching used set is going to run $175 or more in my experience.

    • Ask yourself why you play.  For me, I play for a bunch of reasons: I like being outdoors, in beautiful spaces; I like spending peaceful time with my son; I enjoy the challenge of the game (even though I am still very much a beginner); I enjoy the feeling of hitting good shots (they do happen sometimes), and playing a good hole; I enjoy the discipline of persevering with a very challenging thing, and staying mindful, and trying to keep on top of the frustration.  For all these reasons, whether I play or not is not related to my score.  I broke 100 two or three times earlier in the summer, but this week I've been playing as badly as I've played since I started, but the reasons I play are still met by going and playing, so I won't quit. Sounds to me like your enjoyment is closely tied to your score and (if I may be so bold) you ego.  You don't like the feeling of having gone backwards, and you're not scoring well.  If those are the reasons you play (you like scoring well, and you like feeling proud / identifying as a single digit handicap golfer), then unless you're prepared to work through the reasons for your poor scoring, or reframe your experience of the game, you probably should go and do something else.
    • Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the advice. Let me clear up one though - I'm only 39 years old.  That seems to make quitting even more valuable to me because I should theoretically get decades of enjoying not golfing. 🙂 
    • In august, i bought a Datrek Super Lite Stand Bag on line from Global Golf. Sunday, while playing, The strap on the golf cart came loose and the bag and clubs fell off. One of the stand legs snapped off. Monday, I contacted Dynamic Brands, which is the parent company of Datrek. They also own Bag Boy, Burton, and a couple other makers of bags, carts, etc., to see if they had replacement parts available. The lady asked what happened, and how old the bag was, and said they would handle it under warranty. She sent me an e mail with the required information- proof of purchase, serial # and pictures of the bag., and said it would take a couple of days to process.. i sent them  the required info, and at about 4:30 PM, i received another email saying that they were sending me a warranty replacement. No questions asked. I was impressed with the promptness and courtesy with which his situation was handled, since i may get my new bag in time to use it in the club championship this weekend. No muss, No fuss.
    • I'm on an alternating cycle of couldn't hit the ball much better one day to couldn't hit it much worse the next. Last week shot a 43 on 9 holes, by far my best 9 this year. I don't think I could have hit the ball much better, driver or irons. Lost a few shots around the green and a cpl 3 putts, but 43 is a terrific 9 for me.    Literally the next day, went to play 9 somewhere else, and it was like my first time out. Fat shots, topping it, driver was wildly erratic. Nothing went right. In fact I ended up quitting on the 5th hole I was so frustrated. Nevermind Id lost 10 balls off the tee.  I hate golf.  But I'll probably play later today.
