Summing Up PING Sigma G Putters
Karsten Solheim started the PING golf company by making putters. I know this isn’t news to the majority of you, but it is important. PING takes the same revolutionary putter design thinking Karsten Solheim originally had and puts it into the Sigma G line. PING Sigma G putters use new face-milling and insert technology in putters for everyone type of golfer. Here’s an overview of the putters and how they stand out from others in the putter market.
PING Sigma G Putter Face Technology
The clubface on a putter is one of the most important aspects of its design. Ideally, the club face creates a consistent roll and feel, helping you putt better. To create this consistency, the PING Sigma G putters use a high energy Pebax elastomer insert. The insert fits behind an anodized 6061 aluminum face and covers almost the entire face. This combination gives a soft feel at impact without slowing ball speed, something many putters struggle with. Putters with a soft feel can lead to the loss of ball speed, making it hard to control distance. PING’s High-Tech face on the Sigma G putters prevents that from happening.
PING Sigma G putters also feature the company’s signature True Roll face technology. The grooves on the face are deeper in the center and shallower toward the heel and toe. The deeper areas actually slow down ball speed while the shallow areas speed it up. With this effect, shots hit on the heel and toe travel nearly the same distance as shots hit in the center of the club. Translation? There is lots of forgiveness, across the entire face of the club. All that forgiveness leads to fewer 3 putts!
PING Sigma G Line Has A Look For Everyone
The look of a putter is very much in the eye of the beholder. Manufacturers often try to release several models of a putter line in order to have something for everyone. PING is no exception here. The PING Sigma G line has a total of 16 different models. They range from the classic Anser to the futuristic looking Wolverine T model, and everything in between. The Doon (CB) and Kinloch CB, are counterbalanced putters, with heavier heads and shafts for a smoother putting stroke. Each model in the line has a unique shape and sight line to help with alignment. The head weight also varies with each model, making getting fit for the proper stroke important.
The standard putters in the PING Sigma G line come with either the Ping PP60, a midsize pistol tapered grip or the oversized PP62 round grip. The counterbalanced models feature the CB60, a 17” grip featuring a 130-gram counterweight in the butt end creating stability.
The Final Result of PING Sigma G Putters
With looks, feel, and forgiveness, the PING Sigma G line of putters should be a top consideration for those looking to putt better.
