What do I have here?

7 posts in this topic

My wife's grandfather have me a set of irons that I just don't know much about. They are black dot ping zing's. I've only hit them once. They were fine to hit. Nothing spectacular, but nice for an older set of free clubs. Does any one know much about them? The set is 5i-SW with no pitch. He didn't tell me anything about them, but I'd love to find out what I can. Thanks guys

All I can tell you is...A ton of guys played those during the 90's. Never hit them though, but the guy's that did, swore by them.

@Hammer 4 Thanks man. The only time I've hit them, I really liked em. I think I'll take them out to the range. I bet I can slice em as good as anything else

They are very useable irons even today. I picked up a random PING ZING 5 iron years ago and keep it in one of my bags as a go to club for certain shots. If it was me, I think I would need to pick up a 4 iron. The SW is a fairly strong loft, so you might not need a PW, or you might.

Good clubs, perfectly playable, but a sales disaster for Ping when they first introduced them. A radical look and departure from the popular Eye2 clubs that they were to designed to replace. Ping quickly switched to the Zing 2 the following year, and to the more Eye2-like ISI irons after that. Looks like your set is in pretty good shape. I'd hit 'em!

I've got a set of the Ping Zing in nickel, they are considerably softer than the cast and I felt like they were softer than the copper version.  I've been hanging on to them as they will become my "I've become to old to hit forged with my arthritic hands" clubs!
