These two models spring to mind. I doubt that these will hold up over the long haul though so I'll probably grab an extra set since they are so cheap used. Golf club head covers, tool kits, torque wrenches, or other related accessories should be included whenever possible though are not mandatory. The Zings in particular have a sexy look in the sense that they have curves and a very unique profile. The guy was a pretty average wedge player too, later on he dropped it out of the bag for a few months and his chiping went to crap.
I say that, but having fooled around a bit with the Eye 2s, I think I get it. It's not everyone else's iron that all look exactly the same aside from the paint on the back. Mine went bye-bye with my old clubs. If you like the Cobras but want a more hacker friendly version, they have a sub brand which targets high handicapers called Titleist. Wouldn't trade them for the world! Added Ping oversized grips and I hit them as well or better than anything on the market today.
You never forget your first love you just move on and it was time for me to do so. Thanks I have a set of Eye 2 irons that have a similar set of shafts in it. I would think a man of your stature in the golfing community should already know the answer to this. However, on the course the Ping Eye 2s feel much better. I love my Pings but I had the best ball striking round of my life with the Titleist. If they're too far from standard, it might be difficult for anyone to play them.
Why has this thread been bumped? Pricing is updated regularly to ensure that you are receiving the highest trade-in value for your used clubs. I like the Ping Eye 2 Square Groove irons because of the shape and size of the head, not because they have square grooves. I too have searched in vain for a superior iron to the Ping Eye 2. I believe my father built this set in 1993 or 1994. Great clubs, but the lofts can be disconcerting if you are used to modern lofts. There are a couple of reasons for this — when I started plating in the early 1970s, I started out playing hand-me-downs from my father, which meant I started out playing forged blades because that was pretty much all there was. I bought a Taylormade tour preferred wedge so now the set is complete.
Also have the Karsten 1 iron set. They were the 'funky' clubs, where the eye2's had been the 'breakthrough' clubs. Ive played and won many tournaments with my 30 year old irons so dont be a golf fashion moron. If i made 38 putts per round i would stop playing golf, altogether. To the man who said I need my eyes checked, my eyes are fine. The intrigue was to own the u groove model. But what does this technical mumbo-jumbo mean? Told me exactly what I did wrong? Using these will improve your game in two ways.
By adjusting lie angle, loft and shaft length the fitters at 2nd Swing will make sure you are getting consistently better performance off the tee. I totally dig swvaguy's review. I'll need to replace the grips but I've already got 'em waiting. Tread got bumped just because this was the one I chose at random to vent my thoughts on the subject. Callaway has built a company from cloning versions of them as well as Titleist.
Understand, I am 62 years old with bad knees. The first set I remember that I thought of as my own was a set of Shakespeare blades with, believe it of not, fiberglass shafts. If you like forged then use them, it makes no difference at all to the playability. Anyone who claims to belong to 3 private clubs could only be a basement dweller living with his mom. But what is it that feels different? Not hard to see which club is for players and which is for hackers.
I remember trying the Zings and some Cobras and that they both seemed to take my mediocre stroke and narrow my lateral trajectory corridor quite a bit. I thought their clubs were weird-looking. The clubs are practically brand new, the guy I purchased them from obviously couldn't handle them and left them in the garage. The ball just springs off of the club with a penetrating trajectory. I've never liked Taylormade drivers.
