Pros: Extremely forgiving, virtually indestructable
Cons: Not much feel
I got my Ping eye 2's from my grandfather who has had them for many years. Despite their age, these clubs hold up very very well. While these irons MAY not be the best for tour pros they seem to work great for everyone else. Let me tell you why.
Feel - The one weak point of these irons. These irons sacrifice feel to be incredibly forgiving. You have some feel with these but when I compare these to my DCI 990's there's a big difference. These irons have a medium to hard feel.
Playability - Wow! Most game improvement clubs aren't very playable at all but these are definitely an exception. While they aren't comparable to blades, they are very workable. I've tried other oversized clubs but these are so far above the rest. You can work these left, right, up, down with ease. Punch shots fly low and stop fast and are a joy to hit with these eye 2's!
Looks - Well, when I first saw the eye 2's I have to admit I thought they were pretty ugly. But you get used to their looks, and I've actually grown to like them. The big face gives you confidence looking over the ball.
Weight - One thing about these cast irons is that they are quite heavy. They take some getting used to. Once you do though, there are benefits to their heavier-than-normal weight. I've noticed my swingpath stays on plane alot better for more consistent shots.
Summing things up, I would have to recommend these irons to players of all levels. High handicappers will appreciate their forgiveness while lower handicappers will like their workability. These are still some of the best overall clubs on the market. Try to get you hands on these irons! They are getting harder to find so if you see a set in good shape, pick em up!
