PING SIGMA 2 ZB2 PLATINUM PUTTER
The ZB with a modern twist. The deeper center cavity and heel-toe weighting increase moment of inertia by more than 25% in this new model and make it as forgiving as an Anser. The heel-shafted weighting is engineered to fit players with more rotation in their stroke and those who have a pull tendency. This putter’s blade design and medium head weight provide versatility from anywhere on the green.
The Sigma 2 putters are engineered to bring a new level of performance and excitement to the PING putter line. As they do with every product, PING engineers combined the company’s extensive technical knowledge gathered over its nearly 60-year history with the needs of the everyday golfer. In the Sigma 2, along with a softer feel created by a dual-durometer face insert, this approach includes advancing putter fitting by introducing a simple and intuitive adjustable-shaft-length technology that is a standard feature of every putter in the line. PING’s research indicates 8 out of 10 golfers are playing the wrong-length putters. That’s a staggering statistic and one PING is making easy for golfers to solve with the Sigma 2. Golfers will see significant improvement in their putting consistency if they use a putter length that is matched to their needs.
The Sigma 2 face technology is designed for the golfer who prefers a putter on the softer side of the feel spectrum but with some of the benefits of a firm face, including more consistency on longer putts. By combining the hardness of the PEBAX materials, the Sigma 2 series provides a feel preference that appeals to a large segment of golfers while delivering the performance and consistency golfers need to improve their results on the greens.
The Anser is the winningest model in PGA Tour history, and its newest iteration has the traditional heel-toe ballasts that boost MOI, plus pleasing contours, a clean top rail and simple alignment line. The blade design and medium head weight make this putter proficient from any distance. The mid-hang balance targets players with a moderate rotation in their stroke, and thus fits a large percentage of golfers.
A softer feel in the Sigma 2 putters is the result of an innovative dual-durometer PEBAX insert, which also features PING’s patented True Roll face pattern. The softer front layer ensures the precision necessary for shorter, delicate must-makes. The firmer back layer offers the solid feedback and distance control required for holing longer-range putts and improving overall consistency. The patented face pattern varies in depth and pitch to speed up off-center impacts and ensure full-face forgiveness.
The adjustable-length shaft represents industry-first technology that is concealed beneath the grip, allowing golfers to modify length between 32″ and 36″ prior to a round. The process is quick and intuitive through the use of an adjustment tool that inserts into the top of the grip. One full turn causes a ¼” adjustment up or down, and the grip remains perfectly aligned during the adjustment process. It allows golfers to experiment with various lengths and ultimately self-fit themselves. They are no longer limited to a specific length measurement. They simply adjust it until they’re comfortable, ideally with their eyes directly over the ball.
PING Pistol Grip Options
Three proprietary PING grips allow golfers to dial in their optimal fit and feel. The PP60 is a midsize, lightweight design with a foam under-listing. The PP61 is an exaggerated pistol to fit the contour of the golfer’s hands, with a rubber under-listing for a softer response. Its profile is similar to the popular PP58 grip. The PP62 is the thickest of the PING pistol series and is more rounded with a foam under-listing.
