Great clubs from way back.
I have been in the golf business for 23 years and have seen a lot of clubs come and go. I can not tell you how many times I have heard some one say I wish I never sold my Pings. These are an older set of Ping Eye clubs, the model just before the Ping Eye 2s. I think they are still a great set of clubs. They have a classic cavity back design and offer all the forgivess of most clubs today. There is nothing wrong with playing an old set if they match your game and you can have confidence in them. I think I will keep the in play for a while longer. Lance VegasGolfPros

May be the best Ping irons I've played.
Over the years I have played used a set of Ping Eye 2 plus for 10 years and also played Karsten I, Ping Zings, and a set of Ping Eye 2 Copper. The Karsten Is, I used for 4 or 5 years and hit them well but sold them for my inability to control the distance and difficulty in working the ball. I enjoyed the Ping Eye 2 but always had trouble with the five iron. So far I've played two rounds with these clubs and like everything abput them. The grips are probably 1/16th larger than my normal grips but feel great. The irons themselves are in wonderful condition and play like new. It was a remarkable price for these clubs.
I have taken up golf and while I generally like to have quality everything, I didn't necessarily want to fork out big bucks for a top of the line set of irons at this stage of my game. Instead I opted for a quality set of used irons which suit my needs perfectly.
ping eye irons
ping revolutionalised irons with these clubs, virtually all others now use this design concept (cavity back) i took the irons out first time yesterday, and shot a net 62, for my lowest score ever. and no, they are not for sale at any price, well maybe...

Ping Eye irons are a surprisingly outstanding set of clubs!!
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Built in 1986, my set of Ping Eye irons has been amazing! I own three other sets of Pings--including a set of S57s (which are excellent)--and these Eyes with their V-grooves outperform all of them. I'm 60 years old--a lifetime upper 80s player--and now shots into the green have better spin and stop where they hit...shots from greenside sand now hit and check up immediately...without changing my swing, I now take a nice divot (something I've never done consistently). Excellent distance, comparable to my S57s which have 20 more years of technology built into them. Golf is fun!
Being used clubs, I regripped with Ping 703 grips (perfect!) after adding butt extensions to achieve standard length. Lie angle has been altered since manufacture, so I need to have their loft and lie angles checked. I like these so much that I'm planning to have Ping refinish them in the off-season.
