PING ADDS NEW MODELS TO SIGMA PUTTER RANGE
Ping has expanded its popular Sigma G series of putters with two new highly forgiving mallets, the Craz-E and Tyne H.
Featuring advancements to the brand’s True Roll Face Technology, and a multi-piece face engineered with a material commonly used in the soles of high-performance athletic shoes, the Sigma G line offers significant improvements in feel, alignment and overall putting performance.
“By broadening the options for golfers with the Craz-E and the Tyne H, we’re able to introduce more players of all abilities to the phenomenal feel and full-face forgiveness of the Sigma G putters,” said Ping chairman John Solheim. “The uniquely softer feel and satisfying sound comes from the combination of high-grade elastomer and aerospace-grade aluminium over the entire face. With improved ball-speed consistency and forgiveness, golfers will make more putts and gain confidence from any distance, and that’s going to bring down scores.”
The Craz-E design has been a favorite of tour pros for several years with more than 70 winning versions showcased in the PING Gold Putter Vault, including three major titles. Its performance relies on a ball-width centre sight line, and significant heel-toe and back weighting to achieve a high MOI for maximising stability and balance.
The Tyne H is distinguished from the original Tyne by an Anser-style hosel to fit a slight-arc stroke and create offset, plus a top-rail sight line that is white on a black nickel finish for contrast and easy alignment.
Sigma G face inserts are made of Pebax Elastomer, a lightweight, high-energy-return compound utilised in the soles of athletic shoes for its elasticity which provides the putters a uniquely soft yet responsive feel.
True Roll Face Technology covers the face to provide confidence and full-face forgiveness. Precision milled from aerospace-grade aluminium, the face pattern varies in depth and pitch to improve performance and touch on putts of every length.
Impact stability with Sigma G is increased as a result of the larger face-insert cavities that allow weight savings to be re-distributed farther toward the perimeter to increase the MOI. Optimal CG positions help reduce skid and initiate forward roll.
The Craz-E and Tyne H join 16 previously released blades, mid-mallets and mallets available to fit any stroke type, preferred look, and alignment style. All are finished in platinum or black nickel and feature a contrasting face tone to assist in setup and alignment consistency.
Two pistol tapered grips are offered – the PP60 (midsie, flat front with tapered contour) and the PP62 (oversize, more rounded shape).
RRP: £175 (adjustable-length shafts are available for an upcharge of £24).
