  • I'd love the opportunity to test the Tyne 3 model since its a putter shape I'm already familiar with.  I have found my Sigma 2 Tyne to be a bit squishy which leaves my putts short and I believe having a go at the firmer Ping option would fit my game better.

I currently am using a Scotty Cameron center shafted studio two.  I have been using center shafted putters for the last ten years and have tried Pings before. I am interested in trying Ping's face balanced mallet center shafted putter at 34".

really want to try these ping as all the new putters are so soft it’s difficult to feel the ball for distance control

  • Check out all the models (see them here), and tell us which one interests you and why? The Ketsch or the Fetch, as I've been using mallets for some time now, and they fit my eye. They look like the mallets you can pick up the ball with, too, which I appreciate 9saves on bending over).

  • Piper Armlock or C, currently a mid-mallet user, what I am comfortable with, would be interesting to compare the center shaft

  • Brandon/Beavercreek OH/US
  • Odyssey #9 
  • Floki, based on it's popularity and strong arc. Also the piper arm-lock because it is a mid-mallet.

  • Cory - Los Angeles, CA
  • Ray Cook M1 (2020 model) 34" mallet. It has a very heavy head (370g) with a firm feel. I like using the putter, but am not wild about the sound. Hollow body makes the "ping" (pun only partially intended) at impact a little tiny and sounds a bit cheap. To be fair, it is a relatively cheap putter.


  • Most interested in the Tomcat 14. After playing around with different putters, I feel like high weight/high MOI putters suit me best, so for a test like this I would want to take it to the most extreme available. The Tomcat has a 370g head like my current gamer, but hopefully materials and construction will lead to a better sound and feel than I currently experience. Additionally, the stated "slight arc" stroke type is definitely how I tend to roll it.

Looking forward to the test results!

Hey there, have been looking at rotating flat sticks, I would go either Ketsch or Piper C, Ketsch because I've known several people with earlier versions that love them, and Piper C as I like a Rossie (Odyssey) from earlier days, and with a straight back straight thru stroke was told Center shaft would be a good fit. Currently rocking a Scotty Futura X-5. Thanks for consideration.

I'm interested in trying the TOMCAT 14 mostly because it seems to be most like my current putter.  But a small part of me just likes it because its named after one of the coolest jet fighters ever, the F-14 Tomcat and if I had it I would name it ICEMAN!


Just tap it in.  Lil' taparoo.

  • Kirlkland KS1
  • Piper C - It's center shafted! I love center shafted putters - been struggling for the last couple of years since my Centered Shafted 1/2 Crazee Ping putter was stolen - till recently used a cut down Scotty Cameron Center shafted mallet which was a little too heavy - I've been looking for a Ping product for the last year to replace it 

Old as dirt!

  • Mike/Petaluma Ca/USA
  • Ping Ketsch
  • Ping Anser 2 because I have learned I have a slight arc to my stroke and want to see if there is a benefit to this putter style, and that it may benefit my play on faster greens as well since it’s a bit lighter.

Anser 2 or ZB3. I’ve been trying out a lot of different blade putters to make the switch over from a mallet style and these look like two kinds of putters that could fit my style.

The Ping TomCat 14 and the Ketsch appeal to my eyes the most. I'm a big advocate of alignment and when I look at the TomCat 14, I wonder if the two bars with dotted lines are a strong enough optical guide for accurate alignment. Beyond alignment, both putters have moved the center of gravity to the extreme rear of the putter, which should make for a larger sweet spot and softer feel but so many of these extra large putter heads are unwieldy and/or ugly to look at from the top down.  A putter can "feel" great if you close your eyes and stroke the putt but if you can't get comfortable over the ball, the "feel" will never feel right in the golfer's hands.

Currently playing Ping Darby Sigma G which I picked after trying a crazy amount of putters and kept going back to.  Face balanced.

Would like to test the Fetch as it's similar to what I play but with a firmer face, which sounds appealing. I have a fairly straight putter stroke and my current putter improved my putting a lot from my previous blade style putters.
