Hot News! MGS Most Wanted Mallet Discontinued?!

Recommended Posts

QC issue is an interesting possibility. Though my two Ketschs' grooves and color are still going strong.

Why two? Straight & Slight Arc models, naturally :)

I really hope this is'nt the case. If it is I'm going to have to get down and get fitted real quick and hopefully an order will make it through. Otherwise I'll be going the Karstan Answer 2 or the Daytona 12 I guess

Quick non-update/update:

 

Spoke with PING yesterday for a little bit.  We were working on a fun project that actually had to do with the Ketsch putter.  So I asked about the putter possibly being discontinued, did not get a no or a yes.  I got a, lets talk about that in a couple days when I get back in the office.

 

Doesn't sound good, but will not speculate on the final answer until I hear back.

The plot thickens!

 

 As long as it isn't deemed illegal, I'll be happy. The fewer Ketschs I have to face, the bigger my advantage will be.

That's another theorized explanation I've heard -- that all this is just a fake "run on the bank" to create hype.

And no one really knows...Ping is dodging the question...kinda spooky, isn't it?

 

One thing I'm sure of.   IT'S GREAT PUTTER.  Played nine yesterday with 4 birdies and a 10 foot par save.    Had four bogies, of which two were three putts, downhill from 80+ feet due to overcooked approaches.   Not the Ketsch's fault.

Whatever Ping is doing, it's kinda working....I want one now...

 

 

LOL Thats why I pulled the trigger when I went back to see if it was still there.  It is in the bag for this weekend's play.  Will go early to get a good warmup session with it on a real green before we tee off.  Ive never used a CB before, so it should be interesting.

Be prepared for everything to come up a bit short.   It's very easy to align and very easy to lag, but you have to hit those 5-10 footers kinda hard to get them to stay on track and drop.

Looks like my order is cancelled, although ping uk are apparently trying to source a few heads (and some complete clubs) to fulfil some of the orders - guess the US would get priority though.

 

Most peculiar business.

Kind offer mark, thankyou. But I'm going to hold fire - I phoned ping uk back to order a senita b and asked if ketsch was being replaced - their response was within two months.

 

Now I don't know if that will end up being true but I cancelled the senita right there and decided to wait for Son of Ketsch.

 

MGS staff have you heard anymore?

Hmm... rapid cancellation combined with corporate silence followed by replacement --  hints at a QC problem.

I have heard nothing but silence.  Tired to contact three people so far and all have not responded.  One said he would by the end of this week.  It came and went.

strange thing here... many folks said they would be finding a different putter instead, but none indicated they would choose the #2 putter tested, the wilson staff...

To be fair I have tried the Wilson (all iterations of it) and struggled with the insert - no snobbery at work, after all it's a lot cheaper than a ping and I don't care about brand or appearance if it goes in the hole.

 

But I guess many would pick it up and grimace....it's no looker and many folks do want a nice looking flat stick.

I've now heard from several sources that Ping Rep's are saying that the Ketsch was a "limited edition" putter and once they sold out of production, that was it.     Obviously not true, but perhaps its an interpretation of the memo that said that the Ketsch had completed its normal life cycle and would no longer be available for sale.  

 

In any event, I see that Westwood was still using his at the Bridgestone.   I wonder what all the Pro's who just switched over to the Ketsch will do the rest of the year?   Will they still whip this dead horse?
