Ping Eye 2's

Recommended Posts

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.

    • One thing I like about our semi-private course is that everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Our seniors group is fun to play with, although they sometimes forget that I'm one of the unretired! and have to go to work most days. The course is a Nicklaus design with lots of challenging holes. The drawback is that the developer envisioned Winged Foot Way Out West, sporting a private-equity membership with everyone living in $400,000 homes. Thus, he contracted for an extremely difficult course with lots of bunkers. Legend has it that Nicklaus cautioned the developer against going overboard on the difficulty of holes, and the complexity of the bunkering (as in high maintenance costs). Well, much less $$ showed up than was forecast, and the developer was forced to sell. Fast forward, the greens crew has had a rough job in recent years trying to keep the bunkers in repair. A few pits have been removed as they settled out oddly, or ended up permanently flooded.  But, those remaining really keep the greens crew busy. We just don't have a Winged Foot maintenance budget. One other drawback: the driving range is at the top of a sloping hill, so it's a bit had to determine your true club carries because you're hitting down hill. Overall, I really like the course, the crew and the members.
    • Welcome back then!    This thread has helped me twice get my head back on straight when returning to golf from a stoppage.  I hope it works wonders for you too. By the way, I'm not even convinced that your shot from the bunker was a bad one.  The issue at our level isn't "would a shot with this result make SportsCenter if I were in a pro event?" but rather "did I raise or lower my expected strokes remaining from this spot?" So, if you were short sided in the bunker and holed out, hey, great shot.  But if you were short sided and blasted out to the green and two-putted, there's a pretty decent chances you saved yourself some strokes right there with the bunker shot -- because it's probably an expected value over 3 for an average someone of your skill level to get down from there.
    • Is there an option for irregular?  I still haven't gotten to the point where I can look at a bunker lie and figure out with good regularity if there's sand underneath the ball.  When there is, but there isn't too much (so I guess I don't like "too soft"?) under it, I hit decently good sand shots.  Not "I'm always going to make the save" shots, but enough that I'm confident I'll hit it to within a likely two putt -- something I'm just fine with.
    • I have G400 irons and paid under $700 for six of them (5-P).  I am debating going to go back in a few days and get the UW as well, and I don't expect that to cost much more than $125.  Where are you that MAP is this much?  I bought mine at Roger Dunn and you can bet they follow Ping's rules to the letter.
    • T mobile and boost mobile etc...throttle the crap out of everything.  Makes sending pics, downloads, going online using maps almost unusable. Had one of my guys at work take pics for me and his phone would crash trying to send them to me. It's up to u guys, but u get what u pay for and there are contracts involved. I have At&t and love it.  Switched a few years back from Sprint...another carrier touting great deals but their LTE is almost non exisitent so your nice new iPhone will run like crap. Weigh your options before u sign up anywhere.
