Ping have introduced two new putters with the addition of the Sigma G Craz-E and Tyne H putters to their list of flat sticks available to buy from the popular Sigma range.
The Sigma range was only introduced earlier this year with 16 blade, mallets and mid-mallet counter balanced options. Having proved incredibly popular, there are already another two options to choose from—the Craz-E and Tyne H were recently revealed for the first time by Ping.
Both options are mallet-style putters and the Craz-E name might well be familiar to devotees of Ping putters. That is because it has already featured in other ranges before being launched in the Sigma range.
Both putters are made from stainless steel with an aluminium insert that covers the entire length of the face. They come with Ping standard features like True Roll Face Technology which helps provide ball-speed consistency from strikes, as well as an insert made from a Pebax Elastomer for a soft feel on the putting surface. They are also available in different shaft lengths and with two grip options.
So what are the differences and what can you expect from both the Ping Sigma G Craz-E and Tyne H putters?
Ping Sigma G Craz-E Putter
If you have heard of the Craz-E putter before, that’s because it has been around previously in several other ranges from Ping. In fact, more than 70 wins and three majors have been won by TOUR stars using Craz-E putters. The latest design in the Sigma range has a center sight line of a ball-width to help alignment and a heel, toe and back weighting in order to create a high MOI and maximise stability and forgiveness. You should get the same—or similar—ball speed whether you’re striking from the center of the putter or producing an off-center strike.
Ping Sigma Tyne H Putter
The Tyne H putter is perhaps more eye-catching than the Craz-E. The white sight line on the black putter head—created by the contrasting use of platinum and nickel—gives this piece of equipment an extremely attractive look while also aiding alignment. It suits golfers with a putting stroke that arches slightly rather than moves on a perfect straight line, due to the fitting of the Anser-style hosel. It is that hosel that makes it different from Ping’s original Tyne putter, and also the reason for the ‘H’ in the name. The technology helps initiate forward roll and should, in turn, help your ball speed control.
Bring down scores
Whichever you choose, both putters come with a promise of improving your numbers on the putting green with Ping chairman John A. Solheim promising: “We’re able to introduce more players of all abilities to the phenomenal feel and full-face forgiveness of the Sigma G putters. Golfers will make more putts and gain confidence from any distance, and that’s going to bring down scores.”
