PING Eye 2s Are the Best Irons Ever Created

Hi

Been playing 4-9 Ping G irons plus Glide 2.0 wedges and also have a Ping Eye 2 2 iron as a "get from under trees club"  because if its low ball flight and absolutely  love it.

The 2 iron has been reshafted and fitted with a Regular Graphite shaft.

Thinking of going retro and getting more Ping Eye 2 irons and intend to also get them reshafted my question is:

Is Ping Eye 2 standard less usable than Ping Eye 2 + and if could get a set of Ping Eye 2 Berryllium Copper would they be better that either of the steel clubs?

regards

Hello and welcome to TST. What exactly do you mean by ‘better?’ It’s really your own preference. The Ping Eye2’s certainly have an enduring reputation. You may see a drop in distance going from the more modern G irons to the Ping Eye2. The G irons are designed to get the ball in the air easier. As far as the BC it’s really just a matter of what you like. Performance wise I don’t think there’s any significant difference. If you could get a Ping Eye2 7i and hit it for comparison with your G iron you’ll be able to make a better decision.

Thanks

Just wanted an opinion as to whether there was any real difference between the Steel and the Copper versions.

Not too fussed at maybe losing a bit of distance as in the end this is a heart versus head issue 😎

    • Updated Nevada rules, have to start wearing a mask on the range, went into effect yesterday 👎 Doing a lot of slow reps, taking it to 4 withe knees staying over the feet and then breathing into it. Legs are looking more stable, matching up well with the handle being more forward/shaft steeper on the downswing. When I can keep the femur "spread" it feels like the club works "straighter" into the ball rather than under and out to the right.   
    • Day 348 Superspeed workout and some tempo drills with 7-iron. Hit the ball really shitty, hope it was the dark. 
    • Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron? 
    • No. I only have 3: 48, 54, and 60. I’d rather have more clubs at the longer end of the bag. It is generally far easier to finesse a wedge than a long club. Additionally, when you finesse a wedge, it’s easier to retain spin and hold the green. Conversely, when taking something off a longer club, it’s harder to maintain spin and adequate landing angle to retain the green. Therefore, I’d rather have more opportunities at a stock number on the longer end of the bag than carry an additional wedge. 
    • Iron set wedges are 44(Pw) and 49(aw) vokeys are 54s and 60k set wedges are mainly full Shots. The 54 does everything inside 75 yards except bunkers and if I’m short sided in rough (that’s the k) I’m thinking of getting new irons next spring but wondering if I’ll have to get a 50 degree wedge (will most likely drop my 4h if 5i is long enough) with all of these new long hitting irons. Rogue x has a 46 degree gap wedge!
