Testers Wanted (4)

Feel, while very subjective, is an important aspect of golf clubs for most golfers. Soft for one player is mushy for someone else, while firm to some can be considered harsh to others. 

For those firmly in the firm camp (yes, that was intentional), the PING Heppler may be for you. Offered in the same models as the flagship Sigma line, Heppler is a machined solid flat face that provides a firmer impact feel and sound.  All this comes in a stunning black and copper finish that provide effective alignment cues.  


Want to be a Tester

We’re looking for four golfers who are motivated, detail-oriented, and committed to providing a thorough review of the PING Heppler putters and sharing your thoughts and grades with the forum community.  

Testing is open to golfers in the US, Canada and UK.

Reply to this thread with the following information (do not quote this post):

  • First Name/City State/Country
  • Current Putter in Use
  • Check out all the models (see them here), and tell us which one interests you and why?

Wondering which PING putter best fits your game? Try PING's online fitting tool!

We'll be choosing the testers sometime next week, so check back and see if you've been chosen. Good Luck!

I use a 35 inch Taylor made spyder tour red and scotty x7m. I am most interested in the heppler tomcat because it has a similar look. I am in Olympia, WA.

current putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2

like to choose: Anser 2 I’m intrigued in what the feel is like compared to my current. As a person that is 6’6” I see it has an adjustable height. That would be so helpful to dial it in. Instead of going to the golf shop to reshaft to dial it in. The color scheme is interesting as well I wonder how it looks behind the ball.

Tyne 3 - after using a heavy toe hang blade putter over the last 5-6 years, I’ve been interested in using a mallet style putter with some more forgiveness into off-center strikes and less of an arch favoured hosel and weighting

I'd like either of the blades. I've been using my current putter for so long I'm interested I'd changing the style of putter will make a difference in my short game.

Ping Fetch, because my stroke is straight back and through and the color contrast will help me make more putts.

  • 3W: Ping G30 - 14.5 degrees, stiff.
  • 3H:  Ping G400 - 19 degrees, stiff.

Evan, 34, Northern California, gaming a Scotty Pro Platinum Newport 2 mid slant for the last 16 years. Played an original Anser 2 before that.  

The two hepplers that interest me are the Anser 2, because it's like an old uncle you like to have around, and the Tomcat 14. I've never used a mallet or any type of balanced putter, and the alignment dots resembli g a runway seem like they could help jar a lot of close putts.

  • Scott / Huntsville, AL / USA
  • Ping Sedona (looks like an 8802, sort of)
  • I like the look of the ZB3. It follows closely what I've been using for a long time, I seem to aim the old blade style better than a mallet, and it doesn't have much offset

Scotty Cameron 2018 Select Newport 2 Putter

I am interested in the tomcat 14 because I have done some research on my specific stroke and believe that that may be the most beneficial to me. I would love to try a mallet and see how if it fits me.

Anser 2, I have been using blade style putters for years and I think it would be great to compare the firmer face Ping to the Odyssey putters I have gamed.

Titleist Scotty Cameron Select Laguna

I would be interested in sharing my findings from testing the Piper C for several reasons. Like many I have an arc stroke, sometimes more aggressive than other times. Despite matching stroke type to putter utilizing the Ping system, (hence the Laguna) I’ve found that center shafted putters tend to still provide an end-over-end roll on the ball regardless of stroke type. That said, I owned a Sigma Fetch from the previous line (hard for Phoenecians to stray from the local brand). Although excellent, the feel was a bit subjective. It provided surprising distance control as advertised, so I was surprised to see them go back to the firm feel, no insert approach of the olden days. I hope to discover that my search for the magic wand is over and I can help convert more folks to center shafted models.

 Thank you and all the best to everyone involved!

I would love to test the Heppler Tomcat, or any of them really. I love my sigma 2 anser! It has improved my putting dramatically! It feels amazing and I'm sure the new ones are even better! I love the look of the new tomcat and have had a blade style putter but am interested in possibly something new
