My original set of Zing 2's were stolen a few years ago. I replaced them with the X-12's - which are very good irons - but I was never able to get entirely comfortable with them. I always missed the Zing 2's. I was in the market for a new set of irons this year, so I contacted the good folks at Ping and discovered that the Zing 2's are still available on a custom order basis. They are priced about the same as the I-3's.

I ordered the set described above, and they arrived from Arizona within three weeks. I had heard that they were now being made with the same finish as the I-3's, but not so. They came with the same rough finish that they always had, which I personally prefer.
Needless to say, it's great to have these irons again. The Zing 2's are definately an excellent club for the mid to high handicapper like myself. You will not find a more forgiving iron out there - trust me, I have looked.
The biggest complaint people had about these clubs was the extremely thick top line and the overall size of the head. You will either love it or hate it. Highly skilled golfers don't seem to be overly fond of these irons, as they say they are difficult to work the ball with. Maybe one day when I am shooting in the 70's I will want a more "workable" iron, but for now, these are the club of choice for me. I find that the thick top line and overall weight of the club instills confidence at address and definately helps get the ball airborne.
If you shoot in the mid 80's or higher and are looking for a game improvement club, give these a try. If you can get over the initial appearance, you will not be disappointed.
