Ping worked so hard on this year’s line-up to meet and exceed all the varying aim, alignment, forgiveness, feel and roll demands that there wasn’t anything left for a name beyond just “2021”. The seven models, which do have individual names, all start with a soft yet responsive dual-durometer insert. The front layer is softer to foster precision on short putts; the back layer is firmer for more energy on long putts. Shallow grooves across the face enhance that soft feeling and offer consistent feedback. Tungsten weights add stability. The mallets feature multi-material constructions from stainless steel, tungsten and aluminium to promote stability on off-centre hits. The maximum-forgiving Harwood [pictured], with tungsten weights in all four corners, is even available in an armlock option.
SPECS 7 models; head weight 360-385 grams; length 32-38 inches
“A Mack truck on a shaft. It brings the thunder but still results in maybe the softest connection and rollout tested.”
