Summary:
i got a invitation from a good friend to play at his country club which i gladly excepted. while waiting for our group to start, one of the members saw my old set of ping eye 2s which i owned since 84, he kindly asked if i would mind playing with a loner set which i gladly said yes. seems like they dont like the old ping eye 2 on their course, haha i didnt mind, the new set of taylor made clubs were a pleasure to hit, and alot farther as well

Summary:
Why i ever stopped playing these, I do not know. After several years of trying every other iron you can think of, i found a set of Eye 2's again and will not change. It is no wonder that every cavity back made since 1990 has copied these irons. they are easy to align, easy to hit, workable, and have a mid-size head. Other than sometimes wanting a little less offset, these irons are all that everyone else says they are and more. Perfect for any player - of any handicap. Find a set, buy them, play them, keep them.

Summary:
i bought my eye2 new in 84, i still have them i remember the first time i hit the at the driving range, i was pissed because of the distance i lost with theses clubs, with the weak loft, i felt like breaking all of them across my knee, anyway i just sucked it up and played them, you feel every shot in your hands no matter how well you strike the ball,all theses people that swear by them i dont know what that the big deal is with the eye 2 mystique is maybe they havent hit with better and newer irons or they just trying to match phases or stories how eye 2s changed their golfing experience its all bull

ping eye 2+

Summary:
I've been using game improvement irons now for a while, mostly Burners - Plus and 1.0 models which were good clubs. However despite their oversized heads and thinker cavities and topline I just could get consistent results and even hitting a five iron proved tricky, i had no confidence. At the driving range i noticed the lie angle was very much impacting the toe and it wasnt recommended that i adjust them so I looked for a cheap set of pings on ebay and ended up with some Ping Eye 2+ for about £90 delivered, blue dot, matching serial numbers, ping confirmed manufactured in Jan 1990! Old Skool Cool. Had them custom fitted and adjusted at ping official fitter in Manchester, UK to Green dot, more upright to help reduce strikes off toe so impact is more neutral. First hits at driving range were disappointing, off centre hits gave a vibration through shaft, distance was reduced by a club length minimum due to their lofts being higher than more modern clubs, a 7 iron in Burner is even more steep than a 6 ping eye, so i was losing distance. Quite ugly too I thought. However, after a couple of rounds something happened which I cant overly explain but my distances just ballooned and my ball striking improved so now I get a very sweet feel from. 150 was normally a 6 iron but now I hit the 7 as normal or on a dry day where the ball is firing off the surface an 8. I even hot the 5 iron 190 yards the other day which amazed me. Now I pull the 4 iron out without fear but am yet to use the 3, preferring my hybrid. The wedges have been left in the cupboard as I have Cleveland CG15s with similar lofts which are amazing. I found the ping eye 2+ wedges really large, angular and ugly but alot of people do rave about them so dont be put off. Overall I love these irons now, four full rounds later and I know they'll be in my bag for a while, plus I've gone from shooting high 90s to breaking 90 so hope the improvements continue. For the clubs and the custom fitting I paid £115 in total, a bargain for custom fitted classic irons. Well worth considering instead of blowing 300-400 on some off-the-shelf new irons. You get compliments on them too from those in the know at the course so quite retro-chic.
