Summary: Hello. The previous poster and I share one thing in common--we both experienced positive results after utilizing the Ping G2 irons on the course. I doubt we share much else in common, seeing that I'm one of the premier players in the district. I've won my share of amateur events, scrambles, best balls and battle scrums. Not to mention the fact that I'm one of the purest ball strikers who ever set foot on bent grass.
Summary: I found set of used G2 irons and they were black dots. I was not hitting them crisply so I took them to Golfsmith and they fitted me for a green dot. They sent the clubs to Ping and they adjusted them to the green dot. I have dropped six strokes of my handicap at age 64. Love them Pings.
Summary: I've played G2s exclusively since 2004. My cousin plays G10s, my son plays G15s and my friends play Ping "blades." G2s dominate. I shoot low 70s several times a week, 60-something once or twice a month. Ping, ping, ping. I hit these irons mercilessly on the range--two, three buckets 4-6 times a week--and they still play like new.
Summary: Custom ordered these the first year they were offered (2004). The G2s have treated me well and helped lower my index to a 12. The HL 5 is amazing, with perfect trajectory and consistent 190+ distance. Mid and scoring irons are easy to hit and straight. Every time I think about updating my irons, I take a couple lessons instead. Reminds me that there's still plenty of game in my 9 year-old Pings.
Summary: Lest you are a fool or hack, it should come as no surprise to you to hear that previously released drivers can be every bit as good, if not better, than the new junk that's released today. Let's face it, you don't need an adjustable driver to hit the ball well. You also don't need a composite head, four places to put weights and a headcover that looks like a suitcase. Let me digress. I bought a used Ping G2 8.5 driver with the stock TFC stiff shaft and this thing rocks.
Summary: The truth is, most of the important technology in drivers has already been developed, and each year all the makers do is to change cosmetics. The G2 driver has 99% of ALL the so-called lateest innovations of the currrent model drivers, I bought my left handed, 11.5 degree G2 off Ebay for about $40 recently, and it hits as well or better than the latest $500 fancy gizmo driver on the market today.So look for the technology, but buy it in an older model club and save a ton...
