The Ping Sigma 2 putters range features 10 separate models including a first-ever design to allow golfers to collect the ball from hole without bending.
The Fetch features a hole in the head to pick up the ball in, and the other nine options in the range are filled with new advances from the Ping design team.
The Ping Sigma 2 putters, which replace the Sigma G range, includes the Anser Platinum, Anser Stealth, Arna, Fetch, Kushin C, Tyne, Tyne 4, Valor, Wolverine H and ZB 2.
All models also feature adjustable length putters for the first time, with Ping the first manufacturer to come up with the concept.
The adjustability is achieved thanks to additional length being hidden beneath the grip, which can create shafts ranging from 32 inches to 36 inches.
A turn of the top of the grip creates an additional 0.25 inch of shaft or reduces the length by the same distance, allowing each putter to be totally customisable.
The Sigma 2 putters range also has a dual-durometer Pebax face material for a softer feel, and an improved version of Ping’s True Roll face technology to help provide consistency on off-centre strikes and with speed.
What Ping say about the Sigma 2 putters range:
“The Sigma 2 putters are engineered to bring a new level of performance and excitement to our putter line,” said John K. Solheim, Ping President.
“Our research indicates 8 out of 10 golfers are playing the wrong-length putters and losing strokes as a result.
“The adjustable shaft technology allows you to experiment with various lengths and ultimately self-fit yourself. You simply adjust it until you’re comfortable, ideally with your eyes directly over the ball.”
Ping Sigma 2 Anser Platinum Review
The Anser is a traditional blade model and one of Ping’s most popular designs. The Anser comes in two colour finishes, the first of which is the Platinum with a stunning black face. It has newly rounded edges in the latest design, the heel-toe ballast that is a given in the design, an alignment line and suits the putting stroke of most golfers.
Ping Sigma 2 Anser Stealth Review
The Anser Stealth is exactly the same putter as the Platinum mentioned above, just in black. That is where the Stealth name comes from. The Anser is the winning-most putter in PGA Tour history, and the latest version – whether in Platinum or Stealth – is another improvement on the previous models.
Ping Sigma 2 Arna Review
The Arna is an attractive mid-mallet which has been inspired by the design of the Anser models. It carries a very similar look to the Anser Stealth from the front, but has a larger arced mallet head accompanied by a flow-style hosel. Mid-hung, it suits golfers with most types of putting strokes.
Ping Sigma 2 Fetch Review
A new unique design, the Fetch is essentially a mallet putter with a hole in the head. That hole is the size of a golf ball, allowing players to pick the ball out of the cup without bending. The mallet head itself has a circular design and the new creation will undoubtedly prove popular for various reasons – particularly with older golfers who no longer need to bend to collect a ball from the hole. The putter is face balanced and helps eradicate pushed putting strokes.
Ping Sigma 2 Kushin C Review
The Kushin C may not look like a traditional mid-mallet, but that’s what it is. It looks beautiful at address and sits perfectly too. The putter is centre shafted (where the C in the name comes from) and face-balanced, and is ideal for golfers with a straight putting stroke, or those who push putts regularly.
Ping Sigma 2 Tyne Review
The most popular of Ping’s mallets with fang design shape, the Tyne and Tyne 4 (see below) are slightly different in weight to give golfers two options to suit their game. The Tyne, which is the black or Stealth version, can be custom built as face-balanced or mid-hang and is suited to golfers with a straight or slight arc putting stroke.
Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 Review
The Tyne 4 is the Platinum version of the two options in this range. As mentioned, it differs from the Tyne in the fact that the Tyne 4 has a heel-balanced shaft. It also has a short hosel. The Tyne 4 is the option of choice for golfers with a significant arc putting stroke.
Ping Sigma 2 Valor Review
A new design added to the Sigma 2 putters range, the Valor is an elongated mallet with a unique heel-toe weighting. It can be custom built as face-balanced or mid-hang options to suit golfers with varying swing paths. The size of the head means the alignment line is longer than in any other putter in the range. It comes in Stealth (black) and weighs 365-grams, with Ping also now offering the Valor 400, a 400-gram option for golfers seeking a heavier putter.
Ping Sigma 2 Wolverine H Review
The Wolverine H putter gets its name due to the teeth and angular shape of the mallet head, which has been designed to provide all-round performance. The putt is mid-hang balanced and is extremely forgiving. The look won’t be for everyone, but the consistency in performance will.
Ping Sigma 2 ZB 2 Review
The ZB 2 has been given a makeover with a neat design with pleasing curved edges to the blade for a very modern look. It has heel-toe weighting, a deeper cavity and it described as being even more forgiving than the Anser. It is ideally suited to golfers with a strong arc stroke and those who struggle with a pull on the greens.
