Reviews of Ping G2 Irons

By Jim Hagerty


Ping G2 irons are cavity-back, perimeter-weighted clubs made with slightly larger heads. They were designed to evenly distribute head weight to create a center of gravity away from the club face. The G2 line is made of stainless steel and consists of three models: G2 (standard), for players of all abilities, G2 EZ, for slower swing speeds, and G2 L, for ladies. G2s are stocked with Ping steel shafts in stiff or regular flex.


G2 irons are easy to hit. They have a soft feel and the perimeter-weighting is precise and reminiscent of the still-popular Ping Eye 2 irons. The lofts are true and the shafts are precisely fit, allowing for fairly easy shot-shaping. Each iron is slightly offset, promoting straight shots. The soles move nicely through the ball and the grips are comfortable at impact.


G2 long irons (2-iron through 4-iron) can be a bit difficult to hit. Ping did make special replacement G2 long irons (2-iron through 5-iron), however their soles are a bit chunky and promote high, lofty shots. Abandoning the 2-, 3- and possibly 4-iron for fairway woods will produce better results for the developing or novice player.

Bottom Line

Ping G2 irons, although not currently manufactured, are still available from a variety of retailers and used dealers. Their quality and performance challenge most new irons on the market. Used and refurbished sets run about $200 to $300. Getting them for anything less is a steal.
