MB Ping Pal Putter

Summary:
I have had two ping putters over the last two decades, but I love my square-looking Ping Pal putter. I actually picked it up used when I lost a previous putter out during a round. I liked it so muck I offered to buy it and they let me. Best $50 I spent on a club.

Customer Service:
I think anyone can appreciate this club. It is mid-weight, easy to line up--no gimmicks.

Model Reviewed:
"MB" Zing

Summary:
Moving to a new house, I found my very first putter, a Manganese Bronze Ping Zing.
Hit a few putters and instantly felt the incredible feel it has.
I was reluctant to play championships, because I´m not practicing now, but I took this old friend last weekend and went to the couse.
Made par, and lots of putts, with 4 birdies and several lips out... was funny watch my fellows watching me falling greens but sinking and sinking long putts to save pars, with this old putter :-D
So, I´m sending my modern putter to the junk room and I´ll stick with the MB Zing.
Thanks, Karsten Solheim

Ping Classic

Summary:
I've had this putter since I was 16 years old and am now 51. I have the original of this one. I buy other putter, but when I get to Myrtle Beach, California, or the Carribean, invariably I end up playing the most rounds with this baby.

About 50 different designs. A lot from Ping.

Model Reviewed:
Zing 2 Becu & Steel Anser 2

Summary:
Probably the most under-appreciated putters around. I have used most every putter made at one time or another - Every Cameron model, C-Groove, 2-Ball, just to experiment and try.

I simply am just as accurate with my older Ping's. If there is an over-riding complaint, and this pertains mainly to the stainless variety, they are head light. I use Balance Certified weights in the butt end of the shaft to offset this.

No PGA player is going to sign an endorsement to play a 20 year old Ping, yet most tour players grew up using one. I don't know if they putt that much better today then they did when using and Anser when they were 15. With the softer cover balls today, feel and speed control is great.

My in-the-bag putter is a copper Zing 2 and I have been putting great with it. The head is a little heavier and I use a #5 BC weight in the shaft. I go heavier on the steel ones.

If you haven't tried them, grab one for $40 off Ebay in the setup you are used to using.....there are a ton of varieties, and see if you experience what I am talking about.

Putters, and maybe wedges, are the 2 areas where there really hasn't been that much improvement made.....its more the puttee. I would take Jack having to sink a clutch putt in the 1960's than most anyone today.....and look what he was using !
