Testers Announced (4) PING Heppler Putter

Im interested in the Piper series due to their clean balanced design.  I’ve been in the market for this type of putter for quite a while but haven’t found the perfect match yet.  I’m not sure which shaft design best fits my putter stroke, but I have an indoor golf simulator in my basement as well as a putting green so would be able and willing to provide regular feedback.  I’m in product development as well creating electronics and understand and respect the importance of responsive and engaged user testers.  Let me know if I can help.

Current Putter: Taylormade Spider

Really interested in the Tyne 3 Putter, putted with an crazy E for years and was looking for something softer. 

I'm a fairly decent putter just need more consistency with touch and speed.

  • Tyne 3 - I had moved away from an older Ping mallet intended for straight back, straight through swing path after determining I have a slight arc path. I improved direction but now find distance control, especially outside of 30 feet, is not as good. A mallet intended for slight arc might be what I need. I also find putters using inserts feel too mushy.

Greetings Forum Friends,

I just signed into this forum due to the opportunity to test the Heppler Putters. They look awesome to me. I am looking forward to checking out other topics on the forum as well. But first, let my reply to this thread with the required information. 

My name is Chet, from Westerville (near Columbus), Ohio. Of course that's in the USA.

Currently I game an Edel putter. I have a couple of Custom Shop Scotty Camerons I sometimes put into the bag instead. 

I completed the PING online fitting and it put me into the FLOKI. 34.5". 

I'd be excited to test a FLOKI. For several reasons. 

    1 - I'm interested to see what kind of feel and feedback the adjustable PING putters provides. I've always suspected that they may feel odd due to the mechanics of the adjustable length. I've tried the sigma line briefly, but not thoroughly enough to conclude what affect the adjustability has on the performance. In truth the Sigma is a little "soft" (read that as mushy) for my taste. 

    2 - I've always felt PING makes great product. Having said that, I've never gamed one of their putters.

    3 - The last couple of putters I've purchased I was custom fit for. I've always believed if you are going to spend a lot on a putter, you may as well get custom fit for it, right? Testing an off the shelf model with the adjustability would be very interesting. 

    4 - I've always preferred a firmer feeling putting, the Ping Sigma's I've tested have always felt a little mushy for my taste. I think the Heppler line would be more up my alley. 

    5 - The Heppler line of putter simply look great. To my eye they are some of the best looking putters on the market. I have two Custom Shop Scotty Cameron Putters which find their way to my bag just because they are really good looking. I have to confess to valuing the appearance of a putter. 

I hope I get the opportunity to test these Heppler Putters if not in as one of the 4 chosen testers than I'll likely test them just for my own knowledge. 

I also look forward to further exploring this forum.

I would like to test any new ping mallet putter (left handed) and would be happy to return after testing.  It would allow me to try something for a few weeks and compare it to my current Ping  Sigma.

Ping Anser 2i with an insert, bought in 2003.

Interested in trying the Tyne 3. Ping’s virtual fitting recommended the Floki, so open to that. 

Would also try the Anser just for comparison, but feel a mallet is better suited. Looking for more confidence on those putts inside 10 feet, even 5 feet to help with scoring and provide more ease than I maybe get with a blade.

Rawlings The Hot Stick Putter RH

Tomcat 14 - Being newer to the sport, my game has developed around the blade putter that came in my set. As my short game has developed I am interested to see what kind of difference a mallet can make. Alignment dots can be beneficial and the combination of slight arc and straight stroke styles claimed by PING suits my stroke. Consistency is my ultimate goal with a new putter and with a more balanced weight and easier to read alignments this putter can serve as the missing piece in my bag.

Current putter: Scotty Cameron Futura X7

Interested in Heppler Tyne 3. Have been enjoying the fruits of larger face balanced mallets for a while now and like the fang design. Curious as to how the feel of the new Heppler line compares and how the flow style neck and slight toe hang will fit my stroke.

  • Ping Sigma G Kushin, face balanced
  • I would be interested in the Tomcat 14. I had always been a blade player, and the cushion was a step away from that. I would be interested in something that is still face balanced, but the highest MOI is incredibly intriguing to me. I also would love to test the landing strip concept with the dots.

Thanks for the opportunity! Fingers crossed!

  • Taylormade Spider X copper
  • I’d be interested in the Tyne 3. I moved to the Spider X a few months ago and my long putts are significantly more stable; hence, more “on-line” and better distance control . I’d like to try the Tyne 3 for the same reasons. I putted with it at a local shop and was really impressed with the stability on 15 footers.

Anser 2 - I had been using a Top Flite fang and was inconsistent, went back to the M1 and was back to one putting with an occasional two putt. Would love the opportunity to test the higher quality Anser 2 blade.
