Agreed completely.

Nothing since has ever come close. There are tons of people out there that will never play anything else. If the start to look a little rough, they just send em back to the WRX department and have them tumbled and new paintfill. Personally, I think all Ping irons look like 60's muscle cars covered in Bondo, but man do they have a following, and that one more than any other.

I have to agree with the Ping Eye 2. I can't think of another Ping product that has made such an impact other than the Anser putter.

So if they are considered the best iron EVER MADE, why do people even bother to waste 1k on clubs made this and the last few years?

I mean on ebay you can get the eye's for a good price, like 400 bucks or so.

The original Eye 2s were made from 82 to 90, and they are still selling close to their original price 17 to 25 years later. Is there any other club that can compare? This model ushered in a new era in golf and really gave birth to the game improvement iron.

I still have a set of Eye2s from 1985. 1-PW. They are good irons and the 1 and 2 iron are very easy to hit. Personally, I like my Z101s better.

I really enjoy the I5's i'm playing right now, have allowed me to really improve my ball striking this year but I also remember playing a set of eye2's my uncle had a number of years ago when I was still a junior golfer and remember them feeling incredible.

As others have said they started a revolution in irons and have to be at least the most memorable iron Ping has ever made.

The copper one's?? Or the regular ones?? Honestly, all I did was take a porter cable to my regular irons, used a very mild compound, SSR 2.5, then followed up with SSR 1.5 (compounds) I finished it off with a coat of sealer, Menzerna FMJ Paint Sealant I did not use any wax, but after I did this, my used clubs looked BRAND NEW!!!! BRAND NEW!!!!

Ping Eye 2's . Very first set of real clubs I ever owned and I wish I had never gotten rid of them. Don't get me wrong...I love my MP 60's but I just wish I would have kept my Ping Eye 2's ( Blue dot)...

I sure am glad I got my hand-me-down set of Eye2's now that I'm hearing all this. I've only hit them once at the range since I got them Monday. Can't wait to see what they do on the course!

The original poster asked what was the best

Ping Iron ever made, not the best iron period. I can think of several iron sets that are better than the Ping Eye 2, just not too many Ping sets that are better...

I have a set of G5's and wished I'd gotten the i5's but I've hit i3's and they were about as sweet as I've hit. Much better then the new ones. Brother had Eye2's years ago and after he got rid of them he's never played as well. They probably were the best of all time.

Eye 2's.

I'm getting fitted tomorrow for some G10's. However, I will never get rid of the Eye2's.

Ping Eye 2's

That's my story too, even the blue dot (but I have the Ping I3 O-size now instead of Mizunos).

    • He started off playing the first hole exactly how he should: fairway, 20-footer for birdie to the fat side of the green, tap-in par.
    • @iacas-Tho it is nice to be able to take your time and type out what you mean to say this is one of the downsides to a forum too-You have to respond to a whole bunch of crap and a person can get all of their thoughts out uninterrupted. If you were been sitting in a room with @natureboy and he started drawing that entirely stupid picture with the lines you could have cut him off and spared all of us the pain of having to watch him so badly miss the point. I bet @natureboy is still going to look at the response-And I bet he is still not going to see where he went wrong. But that is because he is just that way and he is unable to see how stupid his own posts are and how little they actually deal with golf swings. His stick drawing is exactly why you asked for a video-Even though he posted it after you asked. His errors and flaws and stupid thoughts would have been even more evident if he had actually tried to make a vid.
    • Or… golf is hard, and he got hot for awhile. Wouldn't be the first flash in the pan. We'll have to wait to see what the true version is. He could be quiet for ten years and then win a few majors.
    • That makes a great third bullet point. Or a first bullet point, bumping my two down.
    • This photo and the text above illustrate pretty well exactly why I and the entire moderation team is now done with you. The image fails on two levels: The center image is not representative of an actual good golf swing. The right hip is closer to the right foot in the center image, yet you maintain that it's farther away. Whether the second thing is done intentionally or accidentally I don't know. I don't care to know. But it's very representative of how you argue, and why you're now going to be prevented from arguing. You pervert arguments to the point where we're no longer discussing the golf swing. You get basic facts or concepts wrong (like when arguing about course rating, misunderstanding the radius vs. diameter in faulting the rating process for higher handicappers). You focus on some small thing - which often isn't even something anyone else has said - and lose sight of the forest or the big picture. You're not here to help golfers. You're here to "win" an argument, a goal that as yet is unmet, and you have to post absolute crap like the above to try to do it. I had a bit of free time this morning. So I responded to your last post in some detail. It, as one would expect, contains a number of typical @natureboy traits: cherry picking a photo while ignoring the concept, failure to understand basic points, perversion of the statements of others, putting words in the mouths of others, use of vague words like "a lot" (often in combination with the "putting words in the mouths of others), and hyper-focus on some small largely negligible point. Nobody else should waste their time to read the below, or open the spoiler and read that. It will not shed light on anything, it will not help you with your golf swing, and you will not glean any useful information. It exists simply as my last effort at illustrating to @natureboy a small part of the reason why we're tired of him… even though as I post it I know with certainty it too will fail. I gave you twenty warning points last night. It was made clear to you what you had to do, and you failed to do so, flaunting the requirement in several posts. The entire moderation team - @mvmac, @RandallT, @boogielicious, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @mchepp, others - and myself have simply gotten sick and tired of your entire persona here. You're constantly and never-endingly arguing stuff to the point where you bastardize things so much you're no longer even talking about the golf swing, and you fail to comprehend or respond to what's written to you in response. You have two real choices once your current suspension is over: You can ignore these warnings, continue to be a belligerent arguer, and receive a final 50-point warning that will result in your permanent ban. You can avoid behaving in the manner that infuriates the entire moderation team. That will likely mean limiting the topics in which you post quite a bit, because though you fancy yourself to be capable of discussing the golf swing from a theoretical perspective, you've proven that you are not. Now, I want to be very clear about something. You're not being warned or "handled" because you disagree. You're being handled here because you contribute nothing positive. You're belligerent. You don't help people. You don't demonstrate anything. You pervert and distort topics in order to make a point that often has little or nothing to do with how people actually play golf. You're on a mission to "win" an argument, not to further the understanding. You speak as if you know and fail to ask questions, despite the holes in your logic and posts being constantly exposed as gaping. You quite often fail to read what's written, take a beat, and try to understand it. P.S. This requirement is anything but arbitrary. The list of reasons are long, the surface of which was only scratched in this post. Arbitrary would have been to say something like "to continue posting here you must dress up in a purple outfit and post a photo of yourself diving from a diving board into a pool of jello." Asking you to post a video illustrating your point is the opposite of arbitrary.
