Hi,

Can anyone shed some light on these



I'm a Ping fan, thought I'd buy some Eye 2s for fun, I thought I knew all versions of Ping Eye 2 but seems I dont really. I bought them on Ebay for £60 + £9, 3-SW. the pictures were fuzzy with no close up of the heads, I thought I was buying pre + with the patent numbers.

Pat Pending is something I haven't seen, also never seen the upside down text.

can anyone tell me anything? are they rare? did I get a bargin? why the upside down text?

Thanks 😁

tried contacting ping UK, less than helpful. I gave the serial number b02115 but was told it was to old.

I have found 2 sets online selling for $650 about £600.

if it was confirmed that was the price, I'd really spend some money re-gripping, maybe refurbishment.

they are awesome btw, not had them on the course proper, but they feel great, almost more accurate, I got ap1s and they are fine, but the pings really feel different class, just have to club up.

I believe that Patent Pending Eye 2's were made between 1982-4 and featured the V groove design. Basically the original Ping Eye 2. After that it went to U grooves. Then onto square grooves etc.
