Did you see the irons? If so, what do they look like and how do they compare to the other G iorns

Much less offset

They won't. Get that out of your mind.

Those old irons are a large leap backwards. Ping would get absolutely buried for putting out a $1200 set of irons that can basically be had on eBay for $100. It's a case where people want them, but not really. The value is just perceived. If you want an "eye2 wedge", they still make that in the ES. Otherwise, get an older set, get them refinished, and that's going to be more meaningful than some Chinese copy of what everyone's favourite iron used to be. You'll be surprised at how unforgiving they are compared to modern irons.

That takes nothing away with how great they were at the time. But if you want a "classic car", you don't wait around for the new version to look like the old one. You go restore the old one.

I've been really intrigued by the G400 Max, but I figured it was due for new series.
G400 max will not be replaced in February. It stays in the line up.

Maybe because that driver still seems one of the best on the market. Ridiculously good for me, and thatís just tossing in a Tensei White I had laying around. Iím accurate as hell with it and hit it long enough. Iím scared to take it on a LM lol

They are not.  They still look like a G400 in profile.  Back is different though.

From what you saw is it more like G25 or G400 iron line

I was one of the posters pining for a new version of the eye2's but I think you are probably right that they don't compare to today's irons.  That being said, my buddy played isi's until last year and now has moved into the G400's and I don't see any difference in his iron game at all.  No better, no worse. He doesn't hit the G400's any further either.  He never had the irons worked on other than he kept them clean and still had the original grips on them.  The grips are still as good as new and the irons still spun like a mother.  Amazing.

I am interested in this as well. Looking for something bigger than the normal DIs out there but also hoping for significantly less offset than the G400 crossover.

When you put it down and looked at it, it was a G400.  Looking at the back it was like a Srixon iron had blended with a Wilson iron.  That was my impression of it in the 20 seconds I had it in my hand in a room with crappy lighting.  Was that a bad impression?  I saw so many different things that day, they are all starting to get a little foggy.

Take last years (2018) crossover and admit it was ugly and then make one that is better looking and smaller in size and profile.  Anyone holding on to the 2018 models in their shop when these come out will have to sell them for $50 just to get rid of them.

Ok fair enough, let me rephrase. How about a set of updated EYE2+ irons. I thought the i5 had been the closest thing to the old EYE2 with modern improvements and forgiveness. I LOVE ping but haven't played a set of pings since the i5 because: (i) the i210s aren't forgiving enough and (ii) the G400s a toooo super game improvement.

Really hoping with the G700 in the lineup PING slimmed down and reduced offset on the G400 making them an updated EYE2 > I5 type of iron.

Ok fair enough, let me rephrase. How about a set of updated EYE2+ irons. I thought the i5 had been the closest thing to the old EYE2 with modern improvements and forgiveness. I LOVE ping but haven't played a set of pings since the i5 because: (i) the i210s aren't forgiving enough and (ii) the G400s a toooo super game improvement.

Really hoping with the G700 in the lineup PING slimmed down and reduced offset on the G400 making them an updated EYE2 > I5 type of iron.

I bought a set of G700's hoping for the same thing. They do look a little slimmer on the topline, but they only lasted a month in my bag. They're on BST right now. They are hollow and have a clicky sound that I can't get used to. I wish it didn't bother me because I hit them really well and they are longer than my current G30's.

The entire G400 product line was really good.  The drivers, fairway woods(the 3 wood is the best I've owned in my time playing), hybrids(even though I don't play one), irons and the Glide 2.0 Stealth wedges.  I only switched to the i500 because of the look and technology.  The G400 irons are still my favorite iron and I like the i500.  Both are forgiving and since I started back using Ping irons with the Ping G in February of 2016 my iron play has really gotten sharp.  Actually exposed my true weakness in my putting(switched to Sigma 2 Kushin C but not tested yet) which is to long of a story to share but I hit the more greens than I've ever done before which is set up by playing the most accurate driver and the occasional 3 wood off the tee(not very often with such a great driver).  I firmly believe the next generation is going to be very good from driver, fairway, hybrid(crossover as well) and irons.

After a meeting with the local Ping Rep he confirmed that Ping will be releasing the G410 range of clubs during the PGA show this winter.  I got to look at them but pictures were strictly forbidden.  I will update with pictures if I get a chance.  Not much has changed on the clubs appearance wise but apparently the MOI is higher then the G400 through out the range.  Don't know how this is possible but that's what they are saying.  If anyone else has any info I would love to hear it!

Fitting video posted today on TXG Tour Experience Golf YouTube channel (view at 17 minute mark) talks about PING's upcoming driver. Ian describes it as "significantly different" and that PING engineers are "happy to deliver something that is leaving what they've done in the past."

He also says that PING could not improve on the G400 Max driver, so I'm very curious how they'll position the new G410 with the Max.

I suspect the selling point of the new club will be adjustability.  For guys that like to tinker and/or are looking to tune fit to some specific need.  G400 Max is for maximum forgiveness with maxed out MOI and rear CG positioning for medium low spin but not the ultimate in low spin.  Sounds like a great lineup.

Great comments from the gallery on the eye 2 irons

Put me down as a guy that would love to see re-done TiSi tec fairway woods without the plastic hosel

The 5 and 7 woods were insanely good.   The 16* 5w with the F20 hosel (flat and open) was my unicorn fairway for 10 years.  I could carry it 255 with a measly108mph driver speed swing . .with supposedly old tech !

The 12* 3w was longer than most drivers

Ping G400 3w 13.9* Oban Kiyoshi Purple 55x
Ping G400 5w 16.9* Oban Isawa Red 65x

They won't. Get that out of your mind.

Those old irons are a large leap backwards. Ping would get absolutely buried for putting out a $1200 set of irons that can basically be had on eBay for $100. It's a case where people want them, but not really. The value is just perceived. If you want an "eye2 wedge", they still make that in the ES. Otherwise, get an older set, get them refinished, and that's going to be more meaningful than some Chinese copy of what everyone's favourite iron used to be. You'll be surprised at how unforgiving they are compared to modern irons.

That takes nothing away with how great they were at the time. But if you want a "classic car", you don't wait around for the new version to look like the old one. You go restore the old one.

I still have my original Eye 2 irons with the Eye 2 woods that I got in 1982. I take them out once a year or so and you are correct- they do not match the performance of modern clubs. Iíll never get rid of them, but I donít use them when Iím serious about a score.

Some rumors I heard:

- New fairway option will be something like a "tour" fairway, low-spin and just as long as anything else .

- New hybrid much better looking, will not have the closed look that the G400 hybrid had. Will have adapter.

I like the sounds of this

Some of these were very long, but I heard later that due to manufacturing issues/tolerance, quite a few of them had an illegal COR. So that's not coming back.
