Reshafting and Regripping the PING Eyes :)


Recommended Posts

Been at the range about 15 times or so with these pings I got but the shafts were to stiff for my swing,

getting TT Lite regular flex with lamkin crossline grips, I'm looking foward to swinging these clubs with the right flex for my swing.

How much better consistency will I have since I'm getting them built for my specs.

Also, anyone use these shafts? Opinions appreciated ..

I used the TT Lite XL in my irons and am very happy with them.  Tried many different types in a 6 iron before deciding on these.  My TT Lite's are a little heavier than what you will get though, mine are .370" straight which are 128g raw.  Your Pings are .355" tapered, and are 113g raw for the R flex.

those are nothing compared to the ZZ-lite shafts.....i got to the first tee and was playing the tips, it was a par 5 535 yds and i pulled 7 iron. the group ahead of me was on the green and as i lined up to hit the marshall stopped me after admiring the clubs in my bag "sir stop! youre going to have to wait for that group to clear the green!" of course i understood but i told him i was just going to flight it down and shape it around the bunker sitting at 240.

i hope somebody else gets this :)

I think I saw you. You were the guy with a 100 person gallery watching in awe and a supermodel caddying for you because your just that good looking. Looked like you were negotiating a big deal all the while punch fading to a 3 under par. I went to touch the hem of your garment but you had sped away in your BMW with yet another supermodel before I could pay tribute. You sir, posses the balls of every man that ever lived and it's all thanks to your clubs.

The penetrating ball flight that you get with the ZZ-lite shafts is just incredible

My stock shafts are karsten model but not zz-lite, the ping guy said it was just one z in the model, so i'm guess z65 maybe? Oh well, I can't hit stiff for anything, maybe 2 out of 6 shots lol.

Well, if anyone cares, got my pings back today with brand spanking new TT Lite XL shafts, had them extended a quarter inch in length.

Also got those stock Ping grips that come on the G series irons.

They feel execellent :)

I am re-shafting with TT Lite XL in a set of 1985 Ping Eye 2's.

I delofted the set by 2-3 degrees already and I was planning to go 1/2" longer than stock.

What are your thoughts on this?

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
