• The insert is made out of A lightweight 6061 aerospace grade aluminum that feels and sounds similar to a traditional steel face putter.
• Rich non-glare black PVD finish.
• Straight Arc stroke type with a slant neck hosel.
Engineer and inventor Karsten Solheim got his start as an engineer working for GE in Ithaca, New York. His passion for the game set him on a journey to create a better putter. At the time he thought he was simply building it for his own personal use, but in 1959, Karsten’s ongoing garage experiments yielded an innovative putter he called 1A design. This putter had very distinctive design qualities, among them, a unique tone at impact, a sound that would echo throughout the game for generations to come…“Ping.” The Anser putter began a long and proud history of truly innovative equipment design throughout Ping’s entire product line (ultimately resulting in over 400 patents) that has set Ping at the top of the list of golf design and manufacturing companies. The company is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. Karsten Solheim has passed away and his son John has taken the helm.

The aluminum face plate features grooves that are deeper toward the center than they are near the heel and toe, which counteracts the loss of ball speed that comes with mis-hits. Shaft bands help players choose the model most suitable for their stroke: straight, slight arc or strong arc.
"The face is forgiving to the point it almost self-corrects."..."It's fun to putt the long ones with this one, because you make so many. The ball rolls immediately off the face."..."Good for a player who uses a harder ball."
"The simplistic design is very pleasing. The oval-shape cavity is a nice alignment aid if you want it to be."
The idea of grooves with uneven depth work if you don't mind the difference in sound off the toe and heel.
Some found the adjustable-shaft model disjointed.
