Ping Eye2 standard shaft length help

Recommended Posts

G22inSC    0

I am getting around to cleaning/refurbishing my inherited Eye2's and need some help.  I know at some point in time they have been cut on.  According to Ping, the set was a +1/4" but I don't think that is true anymore.  I have removed some of the grips and found the end of the shafts are no where near cut square.  I compared them to another family member's standard black dot and they seem to be almost identical in length.  I think someone cut off the extra 1/4" on all the clubs but the 7 iron.  It is definitely longer than the other black dot 7 iron.

Here is my question.  I found the original black dot lengths for all irons and want to check/cut mine back to those specs (or at least get a square cut end).  The 7 iron is listed as 36.75" but I don't know exactly what length that is.  Trying to measure to the "sole" seems a little difficult without a device of some sort.  Does anyone know what the correct length would be from the end of the shaft to the point where it is inserted into the club head?  Seems that would be the easiest but not sure that is possible due to different lies.  Can anyone help?

Here's how I think PING does it


There are two plates on top of the cutting table that are capable of sliding.  Each plates have variety of holes and a movable peg that lets you adjust to different settings.  On the top plate there's an immovable peg that you rest the club head against  to cut the shaft.

The top plate adjust different clubs from 2 iron to lob wedge.

The bottom plate lets you adjust for overall +/- length with respect to standard.

This cutting method was designed by Karsten Solheim himself.
