SHARE THIS STORY



Ping has brought some of technology that you'd find in the sole of your gym shoes and has figured out how to make it work in putters. That's the crux of the design advancements behind the Ping Sigma G line of putters.

Building on Ping's True Roll insert technology, the company has created a multi-piece face technology (insert) that utilizes Pebax elastomer, a material commonly used in the soles of athletic shoes for its elasticity properties. So how does Pebax work for putters? It's a lightweight, high-energy return compound that offers a soft feel.



The new True Roll, milled from 6061 aerospace-grade aluminum, covers the entire face and has a pattern which varies in depth and pitch to properly improve control on putts of all lengths. The larger cavities afford some weight savings that were moved to the perimeter to increase moment of inertia rating.

The Sigma G line will be offered in a variety of heads, from blades to mid-mallets to mallets, including the Anser, B60, Kushin, Darby, Shea H, D66, Tess and Piper 3, which have been modernized. There are three versions of the Kinloch design. There's the Ketsch B and three high-MOI, alignment models: the Tyne, Wolverine T and the counter-balanced Doon. In total, there are 16 options, all finished in either Platinum or Black Nickel.

Two grip options are available: a midsize, polygon-shape PP60 pistol and the more oversized and rounded PP62 grip for non-counter-balanced models.

The Ping Sigma G line of putters is now available for pre-order, with the blade-style heads coming in at $195 each, the mallet styles at $215 and the counter-balanced models running $235 each. Adjustable-length shafts are available for an additional $35.
