Ping Eye 2 Serial Number Lookup
LINK ->>->>->> https://bytlly.com/2t7JeQ
I have a really nice set of Ping Eye 2 Black dots that I decided to un-retire. I was going to register them on Ping's website when I came to notice they do not have serial numbers and any of the clubs. They have the US patent number, Karsten and address, but that is it. Was wondering if anyone could tell me and inside details to this dilemma. Thanks
The serial number would be on the underside of the hosel on all clubs. Especially if you acquired them used, I would assume someone must have removed the numbers. Unless they somehow miraculously all wore off, I would guess that it would have been either to keep them from being identified as belonging to someone else, or maybe to conceal the fact that all serial numbers in the set did not match??? Either way, Ping isn't going to want anything to do with them as far as repairs, shaft upgrades, refinishing, etc.
[b]All [/b]of Pings woods and irons will have serial numbers .[url=" =knowledge_display&knowledge_id=438"] _id=438[/url]The problem with early serial numbers is that the information for the serial number may not be unique and used more then once.

Seriously!When his Wilson Staff FG-17s (that I often borrowed for tournaments) got stolen, my dad bought a set of Ping eye2 Black Dots from the proshop at his club. I am absolutely positive they were real because: There were not chinese knockoffs back then and I saw the Ping box they came in (the pro had to order them and he borrowed my clubs until his arrived). After he got a set of clubs with graphite shafts because he is old and decrepit (and can still beat me on the course now and then) :-), I got them.When I was going to put them up on eBay, I wanted to post the serial numbers. Using a magnafying glass, I was able to find them on a few of the clubs (they looked like they were written with a laser), but not all of them. I think they just got worn off. Heck, he had them in his bag for 20+ years.Ultimately, I sold them like that, but clearly disclosed the issue in my listing.
Some of the early clubs including some eye2s were chemically etched which was just a light surface marking. They have also used EDM, Laser, and good old hammering via dots into the hosel. I have several early KIs where the etching has virtually disappeared on most of the irons. Ping stopped doing this because it was too easy for pros to sell their stock after the season was over to sporting goods stores, who in turn removed the serial numbers. A slight polishing job removed the chemical etched numbers while some of the deeper serial numbers were actually ground off producing a flat surface on one side of the hosel. Those were pretty obvious. Ping was able to "raise" those numbers back when they would get a hold of those sets and tracked them back to the pro who sold them..

Locate the serial number on the Ping club to be verified. For irons, the serial number is on the hosel. For woods, the location of the serial number varies by model but usually is found near the numbers indicating the degree of loft.
There is an array of Ping golf clubs, and the company has more than 400 patents on various club designs, which are made to hit more accurately without compromising the original integrity of the golf club. Unfortunately, Ping clubs are also the target of fraudulent practices, and many people are sold off-brand clubs under the Ping name or even stolen or recombined clubs. The serial number system is designed to prevent such crimes.
Ping has introduced many golf club innovations. The company was the first to design a club with the heel-toe weighting system, which displaces weight to both the heel and the toe of the golf club head. This allows a more generous transfer of energy at the moment when the club strikes the ball so that off-center hits are more likely to stay straighter longer. Ping was also the first manufacturer to use a selective filtering design that minimized the vibration caused by hitting the ball. Ping golf clubs are not often stolen or falsely replicated because of their designs and the methods by which the company protects the clubs. Most golf club manufacturers today use some form of serial numbers to identify their clubs, but the unique design of Ping clubs makes it less likely that they can be reproduced or recombined.
Ping uses its serial numbers for two primary purposes: replacing broken or lost clubs and identifying thefts or forgeries. The serial number on each club encodes a complete description of that club, including what the dot color or lie angle of the club is, what the shaft is made of and what qualities it has, how long the club is, what kind of surface the sole of the club has and any custom work that has been done on the club. This means that even if your club has been damaged or stolen, you can report the serial number and order an exact replacement. Because of the uniqueness of each number, it also encodes the history of each club, and Ping keeps track of when the club was made, its full description and whether it has been stolen. You can receive this information by calling Ping's serial number phone number and reporting the full serial number of the club you have or have lost.
The bidding was spirited. More than 20 of the auctions had received more than 10 bids, and one club -- a Ping Eye 2 BeCu Copper Black Dot sand wedge with the words 'SQUARE GROOVE' in all caps -- had 29 bids, raising the price to $129. That price level, however, isn't good enough for some. Fourteen enterprising souls have listed clubs for $200 or more, with one asking $499 for a single club and another trying to squeeze $1,000 for a 54- and 58-degree Beryllium Copper combo.

Not bad when you consider the value for a Ping Eye 2 wedge is $23.15 according to the PGA.com Value Guide, which bases its prices on eBay sales of the product.
The serial number is placed on the back of the hosel of the club (which is the part right at the base of the shaft before the head.) They are a series of numbers and letters that are the unique identifier for your specific set of clubs. Every club in your set has the same serial number and this is how we are able to make sure that the new clubs you get matched exactly to your other clubs.
Some serial numbers are easier to see than others but if you get enough light on there you can read it. Serial numbers are typically easier to find on lighter finished clubs and depending on when your clubs were made they may also have been etched.
Titleist serial numbers in the past were mostly etched into the metal itself. Starting around 2013 they started using a laser to add serial numbers to their drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, and Scotty Cameron putters. From what I have seen, their iron sets are still etched into the metal. On Scotty Cameron putters it is located on the shaft up near the grip usually between the bottom of the grip and the top of the shaft band. With the newer drivers and fairway woods, it is located on the sole instead of the hosel. On iron sets that are off the shelf, the serial number is on the 6 iron and on custom ordered sets, the serial number is on all irons.
TaylorMade serial numbers are normally put on with a laser and are smooth to the touch just like most counterfeit clubs. Normally, the counterfeit serial numbers are in a different font and specifically a larger font. On many of the newer Taylormade drivers and fairway woods, the real serial number will be very light colored gray writing. Iron sets will have the serial number on either the 5 iron (for older models) or the 7 iron (on newer models). They have recently started putting serial numbers on the the hosel of all of the irons to confuse counterfeiters and are not used for registration or spec lookup. Taylormade putters and wedges do not have serial numbers. Tour issue clubs have a serial number that starts with a T.
Mizuno iron sets will have the serial number on the hosel of every iron. Mizuno clubs normally have the serial number lasered on, but it will be in small writing. Fake clubs will look like it is lasered on, but the writing will be much larger and a lot of times will only be on one club. This would be the same for Mizuno drivers and fairway woods. For iron international iron sets (Europe/Asia) the serial number is
